I am awaiting delivery of a contract phone and am wondering how DSR applies. Am I able to use the phone with my existing SIM card to test the device out? I understand if I use the SIM shipped with the order I am accepting the contract but just wondering how this applies when just using the phone and not the service.

The provider's T&Cs state the handset cannot be used if I want to return it, just curious if DSR overruled it.


Thanks for the link rebel11, "you waive your distance selling cancellation rights if you ask for the mobile phone service to start immediately" - not sure what this means, does receiving an email stating my service start date mean I don't have any DSR rights?

I've worked for T-Mobile and o2, and both of those you can return the phone within the 1st 7 working days. I know some smaller independant companies may push this further.

If in doubt, contact a qualified insured legal professional (or my wife... she knows EVERYTHING)


Or send a cheque or postal order payable to Reclaim the Right Ltd.
