Mobile phone sales plunge at Britain's Dixons Carphone

LONDON, Sept 5 (Reuters) - Britain’s Dixons Carphone on Thursday reported another big fall in mobile phone sales in its latest quarter, though it maintained its financial guidance for the full 2019-20 year.

The group, which trades as Currys, PC World and Carphone Warehouse in the UK, said like-for-like sales in its UK & Ireland mobile phones division fell 10% in the 13 weeks to July 27, its fiscal first quarter.

Dixons Carphone has been hurt by a shift in the mobile phone market as customers keep their handsets for longer, choose cheaper SIM-only deals, and turn to more flexible credit-based offers. (Reporting by James Davey, Editing by Paul Sandle)
