    This is a good price for the 16GB, the same phone is €260 in Argos, £169 sterling works out at just over €200. Deal only available till midnight

    I tried ordering from Carphonewarehouse and using parcel motel. The order went through but they later cancelled it.

    Did they cancel because you're not a UK resident?

    I tried to order also but got a cancellation.

    I think the issue is that on the webpage the address you populate counts for billing and shipping address.

    I tried to buy using Revolut and using Parcel Motel. This fails as the Parcel Motel (N Ireland) address will not match you Revolut address.

    There is not an option to delivery outside of the UK.

    Shame its a great offer

    I ordered Tuesday using parcel motel billing and shipping, got cancellation email yesterday.

    Reordered again yesterday using home address given on my revolut card and postcode bt36 4pe. Then used parcel motel delivery address, just got an email to say order shipped.

    The deal is back on

    https://www.carphonewarehouse.com/lg/nexus-5x.html?#!colour=iceblue&capacity=16GB&dealType=sf

    But doesn't take a memory card which is a show stopper
    £60 to get 16GB extra storage vs. £25 for 128GB micro SD card.

    Ugly hack is to use OTG

    Trying to order, but while it lists option for free next day delivery it keeps reverting to click and collect only...

    Has anyone else managed to order this recently?


  • Registered Users Posts: 77 ✭✭ Gomango


    The only thing I can think of I did differently is, i was in contact with their customer support querying why my order was cancelled. They asked to order again saying they would keep me updated on the status of my order. Maybe they pushed it through. Because I verified details with them.

    Maybe try this
