    :( guys im pretty P*****D that i cant trust colleagues anymore, i had my phone stolen from my pocket in my coat at work today.... i think it was temporary staff, pretty annoyed by the fact i am contacted so much via my phone!

    just wondering if anyone has any advice to me, how to get a new phone? the phone wasnt insured by carphone warehouse and also had no pin number so i rang orange and got it blocked. i was thinking about making a claim against work saying employee took it? is this possible or can i claim on house insurance?

    ideally i dont wanna pay for new phone, cause it was free with contract but had value to me cause of pricey contract. will i need to open a new contract and get another free phone ?!

    as you might noticed im in a muddle about it :rolleyes:

    orange should replace the phone for £30, providing you take out the insurance thereafter. other than getting it blocked, which you have already, i dont know what else you can do.

    Orange offer "emergency" care. Basically You pay £30 + £5 a month there after for a year (insurance) basically and Orange will send you a replacement(normally a refurb). They'll sort out the number transfer, etc, etc.

    Orange direct insurance is only available if the handset was bought from them direct, not cpw. Unless the rules have chnaged now

    i thought that too.... do you think claiming on work insurance is the best method to go forward?

    she says that i signed an agreement declaring my items as my own :( therefore my fault? i mean this sucks, you would think at a palace catering department to set standards and all i am getting is the vibe that its OK to steal from others causes its not their problem? i NEED a phone with me there and its not like the lockers work, which is another arguement alltogether. :(
