After Phones 4U's turn around on iPhone 6 pre-order refunds, Carphone Warehouse has stepped up to save the day. See also: The best smartphone you can buy in 2014.

Not only did Dixons Carphone take on the 800 staff working in the Phones 4U shops inside Currys PC World, it has now offered to refund customers who have been refused their money back on iPhone 6 pre-orders.

Initially after going into administration, Phones 4U said that full refunds would be given to any unfortunate customers. However, last week it went back on that statement informing consumers that it didn't have any iPhone 6 device so no one would receive their order.

The firm suggested customers go to their credit card company or alternatively submit a claim form.

Like a knight in shining armour, Carphone Warehouse has now said it will refund any unhappy customers who pre-ordered an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus at Phones 4U.

A spokesperson for Carphone Warehouse said: "We understand Phones 4U customers have been told they won't receive a refund on their iPhone 6 pre-orders. We don't think that's fair, so we are offering to reimburse Phones 4U customers for any money paid upfront when they buy their new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus from us. All they have to do is come into our stores with printed evidence of their pre-order."

Although many Phones 4U stores have now been closed, many and their staff have been saved by Carphone Warehouse, EE and Vodafone. Slightly ironic considering that the two mobile networks jointly put the retailer into administration in the first place by pulling contracts.
