A major phone retailer has received a warning from the advertising regulator after including the cost of a "free" handset in the monthly contract price.

Carphone Warehouse advertised the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini phone as free on Vodafone and T-Mobile 24-month tariffs, listing the T-Mobile cost as £27 per month and the Vodafone cost as £25 per month.
