These guys are definitely scammers do not use them. I sent them 2 phones both in perfect working order and was quoted £58.00 for both. I have now received a cheque for £40.50 and they are downgrading as I have replaced one of the batteries. I have emailed and told them I can send them the original battery but they are not interested and say the transaction is complete! I have asked that they send me my phones back and I will return their insulting cheque but guess what they want to charge… Read Full Review

DO NOT USE - SCAM ARTISTS!
I sent them my Sony Ericcson at the end of January, stupidly because they offered £5 more for it than other sites. After waiting for six weeks and my Order Status not changing, I emailed them to ask what was happening. In fact, they didn't reply to my first email but replied very quickly when I emailed a second time threatening to contact Watchdog and Trading Standards! They claimed that they'd never received my phone, but told me that as it was sent using their… Read Full Review

DREADFUL, please do not use this company. I have reported them to Trading Standards and Consumer Direct. They need as many people to complain as possible in order to take complaints seriously.
I sent my phone to them expecting over £100. They downgraded it to £30 stating it was water damaged. It has never been near water, and was working perfectly when it left my house.
Please use a different company. If I could leave a no star rating I would - even 1 star is too high… Read Full Review

They say they will give you a good price but you either get hardly anything or nothing and then expect you to pay them to return _your_ phones! I really don't recommend you _ever_ do business with these conmen… Read Full Review

Do not use selloldphone.co.uk, I wish I'd checked this website before I sent my LG Viewty off (for the promised price of £29) and received a cheque 3 weeks later (not '7 days guarunteed' as stated) for £17 because the 'charger and stylus' was not included. I did check the terms and conditions, and in there deeply it does mention this, but surely this should be stated on the order form?
If the order form states "£29 for an LG viewty" with no mention of charger or stylus, then this is what I… Read Full Review

DONT USE SELLOLDPHONES,
If anyone is contemplating using this company then my advice is to look elsewhere.I decided to use them as i was getting more money from them.My phone was received by them on 12/1/10 and payment was sent 17/1/10. After receiving nothing through the mail after a week i decided to e-mail them to see what was going on? 4 e-mails later there was still no reply from them and of course there is no contact number on the website I had to go through 118-118 to get a contact… Read Full Review

I would never use love to recycle as they didnt even send me payment untill I complaint… Read Full Review

received email confirming receipt and paymnet to be processed within 7 days
emailed them after 18 days asking where payment was. Oh, surprise, it was sent "yesterday". This was 14 days ago.
So, now, here we are, 28 days later and still nothing.
I have used various other phone recycle sites without any issue at all!!
Won't be touching these bandits again.

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!! They are con artists, utter rubbish. I sent 2 phones to be promised with £76.06 and received £45 without consulting me! I am fuming, when I sent an email they can't even be bothered to reply.I believe now, had I not sent them registered I wouldn't have received a penny. Don't take any notice of the stars either cos they don't deserve any, Had to mark one tho so I could send this review… Read Full Review

Like the other person on here who sent their Nokia N95 I sent them a Nokia N73 in August and suprise suprise I am still waiting for the cheque, they claimed to have sent 3 times. I am now also going through Trading Standards and thinking about reporting them to Watchdog as they seem to be 'stealing' lots of peoples property. I have used other providers but they seem to lure you in with slightly better prices, so do not be fooled, this organisation are not what they seem… Read Full Review

Do not use Sell Old Phones as it is a complete scam! I sent my Nokia N95 to them almost four weeks ago and although I received an E-Mail witihn 7 days stating my cheque was on its way I've received nothing! I used this Company because they offered the best deal and now I have nothing to show for a perfectly good phone! I'm going to report them to Trading Standards and see if they can help.
Please, please, please do not use this Company - you have been warned!!… Read Full Review

I`ve recently recycled four old phones through different companies,the only problem being with selloldphone. The phone sent to them which worked perfectly and had never been near water became miraculously water damaged when checked by their trained engineers?? What`s better is that they then got to keep the `damaged` phone without having to pay for it!If it was an available option their customer service rating would get minus stars!! Try Love2recycle or Fonebank instead… Read Full Review

I have used them and got money for my phone from them. No problems and in the space of a week as well. Got the money I was quoted. I did make sure the phone was wrapped and sent properly. I even asked them a question by email and got into a conversation with the sites owner I believe and was quite happy. Mind you I've used others more bigger ones and waited longer!… Read Full Review

Sell Old Phone had my phone for about 3 weeks and I tried to contact them by phone and email to ask where my money was but never got a reply or answer. In the end they then send me a cheque for £20 when I was promised £29! They say the gradings are on their website. Will never use selloldphone.co.uk ever again!… Read Full Review

I recently had a nokia 6300 phone to trade in. I shopped through the various sites getting prices. selloldphone.co.uk quoted the highest price for the handset along with one other site. Four weeks after placing the order on-line I final received a cheque for £15 less that the quoted price. Only explanation was a 2 line letter saying the screen was chipped (I know it wasn't) and referring me to their grading system in their terms and conditions (which aren't even on the screen when you click… Read Full Review
