I blogged the other day that it pays to shop around for iphone insurance, and to check if you are in fact covered under your househld insurance, like I was.
Well, since then I have been contacted 3 times by people trying to sell me insurance.. not due to my blog entry; but simply because I have opted to by the phone, but not the insurance.
First off, I received a phone call from Carphone Warehouse. I told them I was already covered. Still, the next day Carphone Warehouse managed to send me a text offering me insurance, along with a number to reply to if I want to unsubscribe from future spam.
Yesterday, I received a phone call on my new phone. This seemed odd, as my phone number doesn’t port over until today. I should have guessed. Someone from o2 offering me insurance. I asked when this harrassment would stop and the sales assistant got all defensive. After much probing, I discovered that she wasn’t calling from o2, but from another company. Apparently o2 are happy to give out your phone number without your consent. Thank you o2.
