Phones 4U administrator PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) said low interest in the sale of the mobile phone retailer's estate means that it is set to close 362 shops across the UK. The store closures will result in a total of 1,697 job losses.
The head of Vodafone UK said he plans to return the operator to growth in terms of both revenue and profits within the next two years, and intends to achieve that goal by continuing to improve the quality of the company's network service.
EE and Vodafone UK are to acquire almost 200 Phones 4U stores between them after EE confirmed on Monday it has agreed to buy 58 of the bankrupt mobile phone retailer's shops.

Europe's operators have certainly wasted no time in telling customers that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will soon be in stock.
Vodafone confirmed that it plans to launch its mobile wallet in the UK in October, in what will be the fourth market for the service after Spain, Germany and the Netherlands.
