“Still wating for my money!!!”

Written on: 21/05/2014 by spongeman (1 review written)

Received email saying price for my i-phone was below initial price offered due to supposed scratches on my phone, which there wasn't. Accepted lower offer reluctantly but no money has been paid to me yet a month later. Emails have all been ignored, the phone number mostly cuts to an answer machine. When they do answer the phone I am told that it will be paid in 2 days. This has happened twice but still no money received. Don't use this company, a really shoddy outfit… Read Full Review

“BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY”

Written on: 03/05/2014

They took receipt of my unmarked iPhone 4 in original unblemished packaging and said it has (copied from their email): 'Screen Scratch all over screen' , 'Scratches All Over Body', 'Back Cover Scratchs' (yup their typo too). The phone was actually in pristine condition, it had been in a gel cover all its life. They offered me well below the agreed price, I asked them to look again which they did and offered me even less for it , then an hour later offered a few pounds more but still way below… Read Full Review

I sent this company 2 phones. A practically brand new Samsung galaxy s3 mini, and an HTC Desire. I got exactly the same thing you got, about screen scratches, and body.
I argued with them, eventually getting offered a few pounds more, BUT, NOTHING in the bank.
I contacted Trading Standards who assured me they will look into it.
My advice to anyone wanting to use this company, STEER WELL CLEAR!!!!!!!.

“DO NOT USE!”

Written on: 24/04/2014 by Bartlett443 (1 review written)

I wish I had read the reviews before sending my phone. A week after being told my payment was being processed I still have no money. IF I can get through (most of the time it goes to voicemail with no facility to leave a message) I get told I will get the money today or tomorrow I get no response from emails, just a totally unprofessional outfit, stay clear and go to a reputable company even if they do offer less money (this company comes up with a great big list of defects so you don't get… Read Full Review

I think the good reviews on here must have been written by Phone recyclers themselves. When you have a bad experience you sure as heck want to tell other people about it to warn them but who goes out of there way to find a review site just to say how good it was if what you got was what you were expecting in the first place?

“honest & trustworthy”

Written on: 15/04/2014 by lyYork50 (1 review written)

I sent in my iPhone 4 16GB thinking it is 8GB. When they received it they processed it as 16gb and let me know of it via email. They did reduce the price by 10% because of a few scrathces which I accepted as I was receiving more than the price quoted earlier due to my phone being 16gb. After I confirmed it and checked my bank account after 3 days the funds were there. Really great service I would recommend them. Turstworthy and honest… Read Full Review

“I wish I had read the reviews first.......”

Written on: 14/04/2014 by Annej61 (1 review written)

After over a week of not hearing from them I called to be told my phone hadn't arrived even though it was tracked. When I told them it had been delivered by Royal Mail it suddenly appeared! They devalued it stating that it had multiple scratches when in fact it had a protective covering. They offered to send it back but I was concerned it wouldn't arrive so I said I would go ahead with the order. When the money didn't go into my account, (they state within 48 hours), I called them. They… Read Full Review

“good experience”

I have had a great experience selling my new iPhones to phonerecyclers.

Will use them again no doubt… Read Full Review

“After choosing free tracked postage, I wasn't supplied...”

Written on: 14/03/2014 by lizzibeef (1 review written)

After choosing free tracked postage, I wasn't supplied with the label to do so. So I sent my handset in costing £3. When my phone arrived it was devalued. I email the company stating I wanted both my phone and £3 back. A week passed and no phone or reply. So I phoned them to get an extremely rude man. He told me he wouldn't cover the postage costs as it was 'my own stupid fault for not ringing before I sent the phone' asking for a manager I was put on hold. 10 minutes later no manager but an… Read Full Review

“Rip-Off Merchants”

Written on: 27/02/2014

My wife and I sent our old phones, a Samsung S2 and HTC Desire, after given fairly good offers for them from phonerecyclers. Within 24 hours phonerecyclers had received the phones and devalued them both from their original offers. According to them the Samsung S2 had multiple scratches on the front and rear, however according to the shop in which the phone was upgraded it was in "immaculate condition" as it was hardly out of its protective sock. Shock, horror the same excuse came back for the… Read Full Review

“slow & needed lots of reminding but got there in the end”

Written on: 24/02/2014

They would accept phones that no other companys would take so we used them despite poor reviews. It took a long time to get a response after sending the phones, then the payment was slow but a cheque did arrive in the end. I kept ringing and emailing them to remind them. … Read Full Review
