Podcast - 1st October 2014
In this week's podcast we begin with more news about Phones 4u, as Carphone Warehouse steps in to help iPhone 6 buyers.
We also talk about problems at Apple, a brand new handset from BlackBerry, mobile payments, phones on planes and a device that promises to stop people from texting while driving.
Customers who paid in advance for an iPhone 6 from Phones 4u have now been told they won’t receive a refund.
The UK retailer had taken advance orders for three days before going into administration earlier this month.
Dixons Carphone, EE and Vodafone have all offered roles to a number of staff affected by the closure of Phones 4u stores.
Over 5,500 staff worked for the retailer when it went into administration last week.
