“ABSOLUTE RUBBISH. DO NOT USE THEM.”

Written on: 25/02/2016 by HonestAndy (1 review written)

Agreed price for iphone 5 was £102, phone was immaculate, when they received phone price dropped to £84. Same day money transfer takes 7 WORKING days to clear you dont get it same day, even after numerous emails I still didnt get my money. Also it takes 7 days to test your phone before they start the money transfer process. Spent hour and a half in total on 2 phone calls, spoke to someone who agreed to transfer money immediately as my payment was 4 days over due, still didnt get my… Read Full Review

Same thing with myself. Sent and email telling them I was taking them to small claims court and billing them for my time, phone calls, emails solicitor and professional advice fees plus cost of court order, which I would have done, money was in my account within 2 hours. I have been in touch with trading standards anout them.

“Terrible and deciteful”

Written on: 12/02/2016 by hype_9685 (1 review written)

They offered me £202 for my immaculate phone. It ad no scratches, marks or anything. It had always been in a case and was perfect. I sent it off, carefully packaging it and paying an extra £7 to send it recorded delivery only for them to email me to say that they can only give me £150 due to "the cosmetic condition". I have now asked for my phone back, even though they will charge me for the privilidge. They tempt you with the best prices only to refuse to pay even when the phone is in… Read Full Review

“PLEASE DO NOT use this company”

Written on: 11/02/2016 by Cmac1980 (1 review written)

They promise payment within 7 days. Trust me, they have no intention of paying. I asked for my phone back as they broke the contract by not paying and they said they have already recycled it. This is against the law. I would have preferred if someone had robbed me. Lucky for me I work with lawyers and know my rights so will pursue it even though I shouldn't have to. Worst company I have ever come across. They should be shut down and locked up… Read Full Review

“Worst company ever.”

Written on: 11/02/2016 by owen1979 (1 review written)

They play on your words. I send my phone off in December. Nothing. Eventually I phoned and I was told they recevied in 29th January. I begain getting lots off spam email one from a company called Trustpilot. Then I get an email saying I got to wait 7 working days. Still not received the payment. If they lying I will report further. All for a phone 4s 32 gb with one faulty button. £10,06 not worth the hustle. Better if you fix yourself or to give to a relative the phone. Sell too someone else… Read Full Review

“Initially they offered me £50 for my mint condition...”

Written on: 10/02/2016 by 27Beach (1 review written)

Initially they offered me £50 for my mint condition Xperia Z1. I accepted it as all the other companies were only offering 35. The phone left here in perfect condition. No scratches, cracks or faults whatsoever. Within a few days they reduce the offer to 35 because 'of it's condition '. Knowing that I wouldn't get more than this elsewhere I just accepted the offer and receive an email confirming my payment will be in my account within 7 working days. After 7 working days still no money… Read Full Review

“Appauling company AVOID AVOID AVOID”

Written on: 10/02/2016 by Yesenia244 (1 review written)

This company doesn't even deserve the one star rating. After obnoxiously deciding to use this company, simply because it offered the most over other companies, I am appalled. First off, I have been waiting what seems like a lifetime for my payment. I have contacted them every single day, and the same person 'Jan' responds to emails, giving me the same reply every time "your payment will ne cleared by midnight" blah blah blah. I feel stupid for not reading the reviews on this company before… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/02/2016

I'm having simular bad experience with igagets. I posted my phone to them in December. They said the phone arrived in 29 January and blamed the postal service. I had a free post pack sent to me from them. I got stuck with no phone and no money so I decided to give igagets a ring. My phone is now apprenty in the process off being paid for me. I was sent an email saying 7 working days with is long compared to tbe time a bank transer actually takes half a day. So no i would not trust them to pay and I got spam from some survay company called trustpiCrap ExtraEcrap I never wanted.

hi out of interest have you received your money yet? I've been waiting 3 weeks I phone every day get told there's banking issue but money will be in my account by midnight. I have called citizens advice and they said all I can do is complain in writing and then take them to a small claims court which will probably cost more than the phone I'm so frustrated!

I did, finally! Email them, and do it constantly, that's what I did. I was told all about the so called banking issues too, a load of rubbish!

I even hassled them on social media, just letting other people know of my experience... They blocked me! They especially hate negative reviews on social media. I still wish I read reviews before going ahead and trying to get the 'best deal'

“Avoid at all costs!”

Written on: 09/02/2016 by VIXROWLAND (1 review written)

Avoid this company at all costs, I recently sent my phone and have now been offered a fraction of the price. When I refused I was offered a second price, still less than half originally offered on the website and the phone is immaculate. When I asked for my phone to be returned I was told to pay a £5 fee. Every email I have sent has received a threatening replying saying if I do not respond within a ridiculous time frame they will keep my phone at the lowest price offered. I have since read… Read Full Review

“Absolutely Shocking Company”

Written on: 08/02/2016 by Kaleg70 (1 review written)

Not only did they offer me less than half of what was offered from the website, they tried to palm me off with a fault on the phone that had nothing wrong with it at all as it was checked before I sent it off. They then sent the phone back without it's original box I sent it in so it was loose in a bag and when I questioned them said it's company policy to bin all assessories and boxes received with the boxes. What absolute crap!!… Read Full Review

I had a quote for my boxed unlocked iPhone 5 with accessories £106. When they received it they decided to drop offer to £27. I rejected this & they then offered £33, again I rejected this. They returned my phone which I had the pleasure of having to £5 for this. No box or accessories!!! I would never recommend them to anyone. Stay clear!!!.!!!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/02/2016 by Sutherlander359 (1 review written)

I sent in my unlocked iPhone 4s, original offer £65. They offered my £27 as my mobile apparently was locked to Vodafone. My phone has never been locked and I've never been with Vodafone in my life. They are now holding the phone against a £5 fee before sending it back. I will raise this issue with Trading Standards next… Read Full Review

“Avoid iGadget at all costs!”

Written on: 30/01/2016 by Kashj1973 (1 review written)

I wish someone warned me about iGadget before I sold my phone to them... now I have investigated on review sites, I am aware that my poor experience has happened to many. Please read my review, take note, and sell your used handset on eBay or to another buyer, such as envirofone. I sent my handset to them nearly a month ago. This part was efficient, in that they are quick to take your handset from you. It's when they have got hold of it, that the problems arise... Firstly, they disputed the… Read Full Review

“Very slow and still waiting for payment”

Written on: 29/01/2016 by Upset-of-Hampshire (1 review written)

Avoid the the best word that I can put here... Contacted on 6th and had padded envelope sent to me ( it wasn't padded ). Returned with 12 hours; the 'phone was perfect; they reduced price by £30 'due to damage'. I should have stopped there, but was stupid enough to say, OK then, go ahead. This was immediate and before their stated time frame of 13.00 for acceptance. Promised payment within 7 working days; now at 9 working days and nothing. I wish I had read other reviews first. Once… Read Full Review

I have phoned citizens advice who have referred this to trading standards and everyone else should do the same - they have taken my phone and not returned it or sent any confirming emails. This company need to be shut down, they cannot be taking phones worth 100's of pounds and keeping them and not paying out… Read Full Review

“Always undercut price promise”

Written on: 25/01/2016 by cpMonaghan117 (1 review written)

Quoted me £106 for my iPhone which was the going rate compared to other sites. Then changed quote to £86 saying it was due to condition. All they ask is if it works and locked. It was used but minimal wear. Seems to be a pattern whereby they offer the best price and once they have your phone revise the offer. Will never use them again!… Read Full Review
