Vodafone drops Carphone Warehouse, is Orange next?

Far be it from me to giggle with glee regarding troubles of our beloved ISP… Well, that’s not true. I am amused by this news.

13 October 2006 – Following hot on the heals of the announcement that Vodafone is dropping Carphone Warehouse from selling its mobile phone contracts, rumours are gathering pace on the internet that Orange is about to follow suit.

According to reports online, the mobile phone operator said it was reviewing its “indirect sale strategy” as fears grew for the future of independent mobile retailers who could be forced to lower commissions as operators look to lower costs.

We lose money, they lose money.
It kind of feels like Earl….

  1. Would be great if you actaully got your facts straight before you start posting BS on this website.

    If you actaully knew the full story, you’ll find that Vodafone only want to sell through ONE independant, and as The Link are pretty much gone, that leaves CPW, and P4U. Vodafone asked CPW if they want to be that independant, in which CPW said no, as it would go agaisnt the fact that they are IMPARTIAL. So Vodafone offered themself to P4U, who took the deal, and will now have to push Voda in their stores. So CPW actaully dropped Voda.

  2. What about this is unclear?
