Win10 pc in work can pick it up, but not a win 8 pc at home.
Are you going into phone settings and selecting file transfer? When it's connected

upgrade to windows 10.

at this stage it's far far better than windows 8.

+1 for that. You can easily get a free Win 10 upgrade. Win 8 is not secure anymore.

windows 8 is actually supported to end 2022, it's windows 7 that recently lost support.

all the same, windows 10 is a lot more preferable to windows 8 or 8.1 imo.

Goods sent in error are a different story though. They technically are still the property of the sender and the sender can take legal remedy to recover said goods or the value thereof.
Told them they could collect, been a week and they are still adamant on me paying for registered postage. That is not going to happen.

After a week they tell me they will compensate me etc but looking at their CS reviews and their twitter page, it wont happen or I will be waiting months.

So now what....

They sent them to you in error and it's their responsibility to collect. I certainly wouldn't be forking out on posting them back.

I have told them this, so its up to them now. I sent them a final message saying they are welcome to take possession of the items, they have my name and address where these can be collected from. I will not be sending these back myself under any circumstance. My job was to inform them and offer them the option to take possession of the phones.

You're a good egg, you seem like the type of guy most of our parents wish we grew up as.

But we didn't, we're instead the type that get excited by a discounted phone that we do not need and wonder why we ended up in so much debt when we retire.

Tell them you are going to start charging them for storage of their products. Tell them you are giving them X number of days to collect & then you are disposing of the phones.

Is there anything stopping one from porting to vodafone to qualify for the discount, and then porting out to another network immediately after?

Can't see anything to stop you. I did one better, ordered one and had the port date set for after I received it.

Cancelled the port before it took place, and kept the phone
