Argos launches contract mobile phone service

Argos has ramped up its efforts to compete in the mobile phone market by launching a new contract mobile phone service.

GENERAL MERCHANDISE

Argos launches contract mobile phone service

The retailer's new mobile phone store, www.argosmobileshop.co.uk, will sell smartphone handsets from all the leading brands as well as offer contract tariffs with the main mobile networks including Vodafone, Three, Orange, T-Mobile and O2.

Tariffs will start from £10.50 per month. 

Once purchased, handsets will be despatched for next day home delivery and customers will also have the option of purchasing insurance for their handset through the site. 

Simon Barry, technology trading manager at Argos, said: “We’re responding to the continued high growth in smartphone usage in the UK as more and more of our customers are demanding the convenience of shopping and keeping in touch on the move with portable devices. The number of sales made by Argos customers shopping with smartphones and tablets grew by 114% in the first quarter of the current financial year and account for 14% of our total sales.

“The service we are launching today offers any customer looking for a new mobile contract even greater choice and a great deal, all conveniently available through a dedicated website.”

The new offer builds on Argos’ existing Pay As You Go and SIM-free mobile phone range currently available in all Argos stores and online.
