Lets you record all your communications

One of the most important aspects of a complicated issue is keeping a record of all your correspondence regarding the complaint – Resolver does this for you automatically.

Lets you know when to escalate your complaint

If you’re not satisfied with the initial response from the organisation you have an issue with, our escalation process will let you know when you can raise your complaint to the next level of seniority and, ultimately to an ombudsman or regulator, where appropriate.

Based on resolver’s experience to date, smartphones are often not covered under general mobile phone insurance policies because they are much more expensive to repair and replace in the event of a claim. You should check your policy small print to see if you have the correct type of cover before making a claim. Be aware that some policies exclude iPhones – you would need to take out specialist cover for this handset. Note however that if mobile phone insurance is sold packaged with your phone when you purchase the phone, the mobile phone insurance should clearly be of an appropriate type for that handset.

If you disagree with the claim findings (e.g. you think that the policy should cover smartphones, or you were sold the policy bundled with a smartphone) you should contact your insurer and write giving clear details of your case - such as what happened, when, and why you think you are disputing their conclusion. Their customer services team should assure you that they will contact you within a timeframe with an update regarding your dispute. As a last resort you can contact the Ombudsman, which will act as a mediator in your case. resolver recommends that you submit your concern in writing, and resolver can assist you in submitting, recording and reminding you when and who to escalate to.
