Wish I'd read the reviews before I sent off my phone. Same thing with me - still no money. I will contact trading standards & may even threaten them with 'Watchdog' and 'see you in court'. Perhaps strength in numbers may help!

“Absolute disgrace of a company, avoid! avoid! avoid!”

Written on: 11/07/2011 by tafer2uk (16 reviews written)

Sent a perfectly good working phone. They tried to claim it was faulty. Being a sceptic I'd taken photos of it's condition and showing it fully working. They backed down, but not after claiming they would pay as a gesture of goodwill, how noble of them. There are many reputable companies out there recycling old mobiles but this isn't one of them… Read Full Review

“Absolutely TERRIBLE company, please please avoid them!...”

Written on: 12/04/2011

Absolutely TERRIBLE company, please please avoid them! Took them a month to send my cheque, and when they finally did it was for just £4 'non-working' price rather than the £28 'working' price they promised, as they said the casing was damaged. It worked absolutely perfectly, and just had the normal scratches you'd expect from daily use!!! I have sent phones in similar condition to other recycling companies and always recieved the full amount. I emailed them asking them to return my phone… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/03/2011 by Sandra Healey (1 review written)

Payment was received fairly promptly - after 16 days. However I received only £27 for my 2 phones instead of the £53 I'd been led to expect.It had been said that the screen, battery etc should all be in working order,which they were, and that I should send nothing but the phone. The letter with the check said that the payment was lower because the numbers were worn on the keys and there were no chargers! I have chargers at home and would have sent them had it been stated that they were needed… Read Full Review

I have also just dealt with this company, unfortunatly I didn't read any reviews first, silly me. They told me my phone was 'reported lost or stolen' and therefore would not pay me or or send the phone back to me. I had been using the phone up until a few days ago and have still the contract of the handset so couldn't possibly be stolen or lost! I emailed them to say this but they just said they don't know the reasons why and left a link re stolen phones. Wish I'd gone elsewhere… Read Full Review

Re: Selloldphone.co.uk

I've just received a cheque from them (after a threat to report them to Trading Standards) and what a surprise, its less than was originally offered.

I send a Blackberry 9700 which they offeres £153 for, yet I got £120. To ensure it was not damaged in the post, it was placed in the leather holster first, then bubble wrapped very securely. I probably could have stamped on it and it wouldnt have been damaged. There were no chips or scratches.

Surprise Suurprise, they… Read Full Review

Just in case anyone needs their phone number: 0191 536 2375 or 0191 536 5601

I am in the process of getting them to pay me right now, but I am very worried having read the reviews on here. It's been 10 days since they started processing my phones (to the day) and they have replied to my concerned email today (very quickly, actually) saying that they have a "high volume of orders" right now, so it may take some time to get it to me. I replied asking how long, and can they confirm how much I… Read Full Review

I was ripped off and I wouldn't want the same to happen to anyone else. I received £51 instead of £81 for a Blackberry Bold 9000 that was in perfect working order.

They will find anything wrong with the phone to make sure that they don't have to pay you the full price quoted.

I will also do the same. I have contacted the Trading Standards and have collected all the websites I can find that review this Company. I have also been in touch with Watchdog and will contact the Sunday Sun newspaper who has a section who deals with this type of issue in the North East of England. I'm not letting this go and the phone was 5 weeks old, almost knew and they downgraded it from &pound;84.00 to &pound;15.00

“Selling iphone3 8Gb, I filled in all the web site...”

Written on: 12/03/2011

Selling iphone3 8Gb, I filled in all the web site boxes. All they asked was to identify "working" or "not working". They offered £129. After a month of hassle and chasing they eventually sent a cheque for £109 which was well down the list of quotes from alternatives. Their excuse was the "engineer" had decided it was a "category B" phone, scratched on the back and there was no charger. They never asked for a charger, never mentioned any category apart from the two above and made no reference to… Read Full Review
