Specific Product Information - Specific product information relating to unlocking codes, unlocking solutions, data cables, universal products and car bodykits / styling.
Unlocking solutions - All solutions have been fully tested under Windows 95 and 98. If you have a later version of Windows (ie. Windows XP, Windows 7 etc.) on your computer / laptop you can still enable programs designed to work under Windows 95 and 98 to run on your PC - Please visit www.Microsoft.com for details on how to enable this program compatibility feature.
Data Cables - Please note that appropriate software is required for a data cable to function. This is supplied free of charge with some cables when we have it available. Otherwise it can be included on a CD supplied with your mobile phone / PDA or from the phone manufacturer themselves. Failing this, a search of the internet may help. Without software a data cable will not function as there is no means of communication between the PC / Laptop and the Mobile phone / PDA.
Universal Products - We list products for many thousands of different mobile phone / PDA models within this website. In some instances products listed for certain models may be ‘Universal’ meaning they will also fit many other types of mobile phone, they may also be labeled for a model other than the one that it was ordered for. This applies to the following products : Accessory packs (one or multiple items within), Chargers, Carry cases / pouches, Data cables, Handsfree kits, Car holders, Magnetic holders, Neck straps, Signal boosters and Radiation S
Car Bodykits and Styling - All fibreglass, GRP, Carbon Fibre and Carbon Kevlar products are manufactured to order from raw materials. Once an order has been placed the manufacturing process starts within 1-3 working days. Before placing an order for one of these items please ensure that you are a) prepared to wait the 2-6 weeks for delivery, b) you are ordering the correct product for your make / model of vehicle and c) that you are not going on holiday during this time span (otherwise the product will be returned to the respective moulder). If in doubt, please contact us first.
If you are from outside the UK we require faxed verification before we can process your order. Details of how to do this are shown on each page within this section. Sadly we can not accept orders from customers outside the EU as the size / weight of these items makes the shipping cost uneconomical.
Should an attempt be made to deliver a car bodykit / styling product and you are not available to receive the delivery, a note should be left for you to contact the courier to arrange a future delivery date. PLEASE CONTACT THE COURIER IMMEDIATELY!. If you fail to contact the courier within approximately 2-5 days the product will be returned to the respective moulder within Europe (or to ourselves). This return process can take up to 4 weeks.
WEEE Regulations - The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge. The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.
Goods are marked with this symbol to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.
The Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations - Under the waste battery regulations, FirstPhoneShop are now offering a take back scheme for all portable waste batteries. You can return your waste batteries to our business premises in person (please do not post). Alternatively, you can find your local recycling facility at www.recyclenow.co.uk
