Summary

Asda was the only store to really struggle. Not knowing about the product is bad enough but not giving good customer service is inexcusable.

There are some reasonable deals to be had in the supermarkets. But when you actually work out the price, the independent multiples can offer more in comparison. They also offer more than one network and thus more variety than dedicated network retail outlets.

Phone 4U excelled in customer service and store layout.  Sam actually listened to what I wanted, wrote things down and considered the options before making a recommendation.
