Our Phone Shops are now open with careful social distancing measures in place to help keep us all safe. If your personal circumstances allow, we’ll be very happy to see you in store.
We’re really sorry that both our phone and social media wait times are longer than usual. To avoid waiting, and so our colleagues can help our most vulnerable customers first, please see if the answer to your query is in the FAQs on this page. There are also lots of things you can do in My Account and in our app.
Our online shop is still open, with delivery services running as normal. Please note our courier, DPD, is not requiring customers to sign their handheld units, and instead the driver will sign on the customer’s behalf.
