    Tbh they don't really care and most probably let him keep it.

    I had it happen before with some Huawei promotion, no one seemed interested in having them returned and never got chased up for them.

    If they don't reply after a while then probably safe to keep them.

    I received a free speaker with my Samsung Tab7+ and it came with a pre paid return label in case I decided to return the tablet.

    Different companies obviously take a different approach.

    Lol at the Joker who's put the headphones up on the MM for £230.

    Good luck with that.

    Ha ha. eBay is flooded with them. I suspect they will need to knock £100 of that.

    That won't happen! And how would they legally charge you for them ?

    Come on man, it'll be in the Ts&C's. If they didn't cover their butt with that then anyone could just pre order and return for a free set of headphones.

    That's why there was a 14 day since order to claim.. I believe the 14 day is the "changed my mind" return period.. after that it's if it has a fault, no? I mean you could claim that crappy FPS is a good reason or crappy reception..

    Makes no odds. I work in payment issuing. I fail to see a legal way for them to charge you. How would they even do that ?

    I would imagine the 14 days period is to cover that.

    I assumed that's exactly why they made it 14 days before you could claim, but then they seemed to allow you to claim 14 days from ordering rather than 14 days from receipt, which kinda messes that up.

    Indeed, which is Google or the third party they used to run the promotion problem.

    Hence why I was saying, just keep them and send them back if they ask. They can't really do a lot about it.

    Anyone here use the 3 button nav and find the buttons a bit sensitive sometimes? I've lot count if the amount of time new I've 'double tapped' back while browsing without meaning too...

    Must admit, gestures can sometimes suck.

    I had few times I pressed a page on the screen to do an action and its right where these gestures work and undoes form filling for example. Quite sensitive and I don't even have fat fingers.

    Having never used them before I got the Pixel 6 I have to say I couldn't go back to the 3 buttons now. This is proved by my confusion when using my old Pixel 2XL tonight setting up a new app for my daughter. :D

    Yup... Took a few days to get used to them but they work really well. Yes mistakes happen but at the same rate as buttons imo.

    I've tried to use the gestures, lots of times and not just this phone. I just always find myself going back to the buttons.

    No, because of this (I.e. it's 14 days after delivery, not 14 days after order...)

    As for this...

    ... They wouldn't need to charge anyone, remember if you return the product for a refund then you're reliant on them actually processing that refund, and that's where the checks will take place.
