#projectupgrade Hits Manchester


Phones 4u gives shoppers an upgrade to remember

When it comes to smartphones Phones 4u are the upgrade experts, but thanks to #projectupgrade we’re now doing much more than upgrading your tired old handsets.

For our latest #projectupgrade mission we headed to Manchester to give some unsuspecting customers, visiting our Phones 4u store on Market Street, an upgrade to remember.

We’re not ones for doing things by halves, and with a one-man band, confetti cannons, red carpet and stash of goodies at the ready we were soon attracting quite a crowd.


Joy Simpson was one of the first to get her experience upgraded after buying a new BlackBerry for her grandson. Ms Simpson, who received a pair of Beats Audio headphones, said: “I’m going to go out with a Phones 4u placard and tell everyone to shop here!”

Throughout the day we helped transform what was a normal shopping trip for many people into one we hope they’ll never forget.

Charlotte Russell, who came into upgrade her smartphone to the iPhone 5, was stunned when we upgraded her again with an LG TV. She said: “I was going to go to another Phones 4u shop…luckily I walked into this one.” We also upgraded Elizabeth’s upgrade and she described the experience as being like in a gameshow.


Our day in Manchester was just one of the ways we’re helping to upgrade the nation. As well as many pairs of headphones, we also dished out a few more televisions, Galaxy Note tablets, and a Sunstrom sound system. Not bad for a days work eh?

Here at Phones 4u we want to make sure you always get the perfect upgrade – whether its your smartphone or your soggy packed lunch. So, what are you waiting for? Be a part of #projectupgrade by getting in touch with us via our Facebook hub or Twitter.
