    There is no legislation on who can purchase a prepay or non contract mobile phone, as there's nothing wrong with the phone it's unlikely you will get a refund it will purely be at the discretion of the shop.

    13 year olds are buying condoms these days without having mammy with them holding their hand.

    Don't kick up too much of a fuss in the shop, they were perfectly entitled to sell it to him. And, like you said - he already has a mobile so it's not out of the norm.

    not talking about holding his hand, the phone is crap an as stated before he has a phone,i wanted to get his money back which they won't do.
