Phones 4u remains a profitable business with a turnover of over £1 billion, the company has said after it announced it was going into administration.

Phones 4u said all mobile contracts bought through Phones 4u will remain unaffected and the networks will continue to provide mobile services to these customers.
The process of appointing PwC as an administrator is expected to take place tomorrow.

Questions have been raised over the future of Apple's iPod classic after the launch of the iPhone 6 and smartwatch.
The music playing device no longer shows up on the Online Apple Store or the technology giant's dedicated page to the iPod.
The iPod website does however still promote other versions of the device including the touch, nano and shuffle.
Apple has not made an official statement regarding the iPod classic, which was released in 2007 and has changed little since.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will have larger screens and be thinner than their predecessors and will be available to pre-order from Friday.
Apple has released this video introducing its new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
The new iPhones feature "a larger, more advanced display and significant leaps in capability and performance," the firm said.
