“DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY”

Written on: 21/08/2014 by MartinSmitherman (1 review written)

Do not use this company to recycle your mobile phone. We sent off Samsung Galaxy III in perfect working order after being quoted a price of £97 with them. The offer we recieved was for £25 as apparently the phone was not working. When i phoned and asked for my phone back i was told i could not have it back as they had already recycled it and i would have to take legal action against them if i wanted to recover my money… Read Full Review

“I'm sorry I didn't read the reviews first”

Written on: 18/08/2014 by janehp19 (1 review written)

Do not use this 'company'. I sent in an iphone 4s in excellent condition to be told there was pixel damage and the screen was scratched. It wasn't. The phone was fine. The offer went form £115 to £33!!!!!!!!!!!! I was told if I declined there would be a £5 return fee. I declined anyway and the 'offer' then went to £39. After declining that it is now worth £82. I declined that and have been told I will now be offered the full £116 pounds. I am not confident I will ever receive my money or… Read Full Review

If I wish to have it returned it will cost me £5 to do so! After reading reviews it seems they do this to everyone It's the way they make there money don't get sucked in!… Read Full Review

“Feeling cheated!”

Written on: 15/08/2014

I recycled my phone with this company and I can tell you that this is the worst company and experience by far!! My Iphone 4S was in perfect condition as it was only about a month and a half old and so absolutely no scratches whatsoever, so like anyone would I ticked the excellent condition box as this was my belief. After receiving the package I bubble wrapped my phone and posted this out to them. IGadgets sent me an email (which went into my inbox) on the 21st July stating that they had… Read Full Review

“BAD SERVICE FROM igadgetsrecycled.co.uk - Do not use...”

Written on: 12/08/2014 by andwhi (1 review written)

BAD SERVICE FROM iGADGET. Misleading website, emails and texts. Offer was way under expected price and deviously reduced. So I ordered the package to send my phone off, and it came 7 days later. I sent it off my Samsung Note 2 the same day. A few days later, once it had been processed, I got an email saying my phone was not received with 10 days and therefore, according to their rules, the offer was reduced by 5.00 GBP. I contacted them to complain and was told to write a positive review to… Read Full Review

“AVOID”

Written on: 12/08/2014

Wish I had seen these reviews before parting with my property! Sent them an iPod touch which they valued at £25. I was then told it wasn't working, so they offered me just £1! When I declined this "offer", I was then emailed again to say that having consulted with her manager, the emailer from iGadgets was prepared to offer " as a gesture of goodwill" (!!) £7 or my item returned for free. I have opted to have my item returned. Let's see whether it ever gets back to me. … Read Full Review

Your payment as proven by our customer service team was released within the alloted time to clear by day 10.
On the flip side, your comment to our customer service advisor of "Dragging you out by your heels and beating the living sh1t out of you until you pay" comments, clearly tell the real story of who we're dealing with.

“Underhand valuations - use any other company!”

Written on: 06/08/2014 by neilsimpson (2 reviews written)

Sent in mobile as they offered the highest amount for it - a phone I had hardly touched, iPhone 5, got a crappy text email which went straight to my junk folder saying they thought the phone was in average condition and would only pay half, I had 3 days to object and if I wanted my phone back I had to pay. Going to take them to court for the remainder. Not exactly quick and convenient!… Read Full Review

I sent my phone a Samsung Galaxy 2, which was in great working order having used it until the day I sent it in, to receive and e-mail a few days later stating i gadgets had received it and to allow 3 days for processing. I then received a further e-mail on the 5th August saying my phone had been processed and they were transferring me £15 instead of the original £65 quote as my phone was classified as not working. When I rang to querie this I was told it was because the charging port was not… Read Full Review

“AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!”

Written on: 05/08/2014 by Shields468 (1 review written)

Where do i start! Sent my samsung s2 to them at the end of April with the promise of £77 for it. After absolutely no contact from them for the best part of 6 weeks i had to chase this up with constant emails and them saying they had sent out cheques which was total lies. After 3 months of this and threatning them with trading standards finally got a payment of £41.I just accepted this cos i knew there was no chance of getting more. Im absolutely raging and disgusted a company can get away… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/08/2014 by Amanda421 (1 review written)

What an utter disgrace of a company! Avoid at all costs! I sent my phone away at the start of July, all was fine and as agreed by the website, thought great! Payment was promised but had yet to arrive! They 'missed' me of the payment run initially apparently and then promised payment would be made by bacs no layer than 5th August! Still no payment! Various phone calls and emails to date and can't see this being resolved anytime soon. To have to do this process again I would choose an… Read Full Review
