“Good service, unlocked UK T-Mobile iPhone4 as described”

Written on: 30/07/2013 by ainternational (3 reviews written)

Was initially wary due to other reviews, and subsequently wasted a lot of time and effort trying to do it myself. Ended up going for it - there are very few options for unlocking a T-mobile iPhone4 in the UK. It took just over ten business days to complete (ie 2 weeks) - was getting nervous, but searched on the site and got the message that the unlock was complete. Didn't get an email advising this, but when I emailed FoneFun they got straight back to me and informed me that all I had to do… Read Full Review

“We got there in the end”

Written on: 28/07/2013

I purchased an unlock code for a ZTE phone on the Telstra network. I received six codes. When I queried this I was told to try the first one. It didn't work. After two e-mails I was sent two codes to try (these were two of the original six). The first one of the two worked and the phone is now unlocked… Read Full Review

“Very Good Service, Good Customer Support”

Written on: 22/07/2013

Ordered unlock code for lumia 920, was the cheapest I found. Was a bit hesitant, saw a review on here that said 5 days delivery, sure enough I ordered mine thursday and it came monday. Quicker than the allowance of 10 days! The code I received didnt work at first but the live chat support helped me through the process and it worked. The support person said he had a 100% success rate for UK network lumias. … Read Full Review

“Best.Service.EVER”

Written on: 21/05/2013

i had purchased a phone (Nokia 3710) off ebay which was unlocked, however it was branded to another service, which was incredibly annoying. I had searched everywhere for a way to get rid of it, and then i typed in 'generic de-branding firmware' and voila fonefunshop popped up ! Like anyone, i was a bit skeptical, being so many frauds out in the wide world web, but i was blown away by how simple it all was. Easy to navigate website, the product that i wanted (for a very old phone). Purchased the… Read Full Review

“An Excellent Service”

Written on: 08/05/2013 by Mervibiza (1 review written)

I have always been cautious about sending money via the internet because there are so many scams out there. The unlocking service from FoneFunShop is not one of them. This genuine service is fast and efficient. It took less than 24 hours from payment to having my Samsung Galaxy unlocked from "O2" and up and running on my Spanish "Movistar" network. The opportunity to read the unlocking instructions on your web site, (before parting with my money), convinced me that you were a legitimate… Read Full Review

“unlocking spanish phone”

Written on: 19/04/2013 by gorkasillero (1 review written)

I wanted to unlock a spanish alcatel (smartphone) from the operator Yoigo, and I visited first some local shops where no one could do a thing. Some even told me that there was a problem with the simcard reader and that the repair would cost 40 quids, which, after 1 week of waiting couldnt be done! Then, luckily me, i found this online shop and i decided to send the phone there, considering i was taking no risk at all after the other experiences. What a surprise was to see how, in less than 1… Read Full Review

“HTC sensation USB port replacement”

Written on: 08/04/2013 by grahamjO (1 review written)

Our phone was repaired and returned via Royal Mail special delivery in 4 days and now works perfectly. You are able to track the status of your repair online and you get feedback and pictures to show the results of the repair work. It would have been nice to know about this part of the service when I placed my order but it was also a pleasant surprise when an email received from the fone fun shop explained this service. I would recommend the fun fone shop to anyone who needs their mobile… Read Full Review

“They lied about non-delivery from the Royal...”

Written on: 28/03/2013 by moro777 (1 review written)

They lied about non-delivery from the Royal Mail. They returned my phone (phone was sent for a small repair). My phone came back bricked and is now useless. They ignore emails and are very untrustworthy. Do not use them. Dishonest and incompetent at mobile phone repairs. Find some other company outside Sheffield. All the above is documented. please be warned… Read Full Review

Fonefunshop's Response to moro777's Review

Written on: 05/04/2013

We do not lie, i already told you it was not delivered but was delivered the next day.

i have cctv of out side our store 24 hours a day, no delivery of any mail was attempted due to snow that day.

I already explained this to you and have spoken with royal mail too.

their take on it is that they attempted to get to our store but could not get there to complete the delivery. Which i thought was pathetic too.

We have no reason to lie about something being delivered to us, why would we??? its pointless.

your phone was already bricked when you sent it, hence you sent it for boot repair.

we repaired your boot but you had also damaged your flash chip, so we couldn't flash it to finish the job.

you were also refunded too.

so why on earth you leave a review like this is beyond me.

We spent a lot of time trying to repair your tablet, and did not charge you a penny, any other company would charge you for their time.

I guess some people simply do not listen to facts when things dont go their way. and feel to slander our company simply out of spite.

“Excellent repair (HTC Sensation USB port)”

Written on: 28/02/2013 by kevdines (1 review written)

The repair required desoldering a damaged micro USB port and soldering a new one in place. For ~£30 inc. insured postage, these chaps had the phone repaired and delivered back to me in four days, which presumably included them waiting on delivery of the spare part. The whole process was very simple and their online repair tracking service was excellent, keeping me updated of the progress throughout the process. I was initially skeptical about posting my phone to a company called… Read Full Review

If every one did what they said they would do, in the time they said they would do it, at a price that is fair, then the world would be a much better place. I have used FoneFunShop for repairs twice now, on on both times been delighted with their timeliness, communication, quality and price. What else can you say?… Read Full Review

“I wish I could say it was better”

Written on: 19/12/2012 by trevourblac (1 review written)

I was excited when I found Fone Fun Shop as I was desperately looking for a solution to unlock my iPhone 5 which is locked to O2-UK. I knew they were a legitimate company since they have an actual store and offer other services besides unlocking (its easy to fall for scams when you're looking to unlock an iPhone). I also read a review on this site by a gentleman who unlocked his iPhone 5 with Fone Fun Shop which killed any remaining skepticism I had. When I ordered, the site said turnaround… Read Full Review

“I've got my phone back!!!”

Written on: 15/12/2012 by timmay2606 (1 review written)

After by little boy dropped my HTC Incredible S and obliterated the LCD screen and digitiser, I tried to fix it myself. After a 4 hour botch job I had only succeeded in losing two tiny screws and still actually made my phone even worse! I contacted Fone Fun Shop and they said that they don't normally like trying to fix self repairs, but they would do what they can. I posted my phone to them with a cover note, figuring I had nothing to lose, on Monday. On Thursday night I had an answerphone… Read Full Review
