“I read the reviews on here only after I had sent my...”

Written on: 09/03/2011

I read the reviews on here only after I had sent my phone off and was gutted! I had previously used fonebank and always had a positive experience. I had not received a cheque 16 days after selloldphone had emailed me confirmation of receiving my phone (supposed to take 10 days max). Anyway, i had a bad feeling so asked them to contact me asap or send my cheque or i would be reporting them to trading standards...low and behold the next day they emailed me to say cheque should be with me soon. It… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/03/2011

This company is an absolute disgrace. Anybody out there, just DO NOT USE. total rip off merchants. They recieved my phones on the 15th of Feb. Did not hear from them after continuously e-mailing until I threatend them with trading standards, watchdog and which? magazine on Saturday 4th March. Recieved cheque today, 9th March, but had an amazing £40.00 knocked off. Phones where working absolutely fine. No problems there.
Will never ever use again.

Written on: 09/03/2011

Absolutely disgusted with this company! I sent two phones off and was promised £103 for the two yet received a cheque after three weeks of pestering them and threatening trading standards for £21 with them stating that one of the phones was not of "that grade". The phone in question was a perfect blackberry curve only 6 months old, yet they paid me for another phone that had some substantial fascia damage in fact they gave me the amount promised for that! My blackberry is probably being traded… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/03/2011

This disgusting company have ripped me off too. If only I had read this page first. Arrgghh! I was suckered in by the high offer price but it seems their usual business practice is to send a cheque for way less than promised, if you get one at all. How they can hide behind their totally unfair terms & conditions is a joke cos they never mentioned them at the start. If I knew what they would do beforehand then I would have gone elsewhere as I've never had this before. 'Fonebank' and 'Top Dollar… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/02/2011 by krusty9747 (2 reviews written)

I used this company once before with NO problems at all. However, things have now certainly changed.

I sent my mobile phone to them which was received the 5th February and payment was apparently sent 11th February. Despite constant emails, they were not answered until I mentioned Trading Standards and received an email within seconds saying I should have received an email on the 11th Feb (I did not) and that payment is made withing 7-10 working days. However, payment has still not been… Read Full Review

This company is a joke! I bet nobody has ever used these twice, at least i hope not! They said they would give £80 for my phone. I got an email saying they recieved it. Then nothing for ages! I sent email after email but no response. I found a number on a website, tried ringing them and got nothing. So i sent another email mentioning the trading standards and suprise suprise, i get a cheque a 3 days later! The cheque was £10 short, because apparently there was no charger with it!

DO NOT USE THIS TERRIBLE RIP OFF COMPANY, I was promised nearly 300.00 for 2 perfect phones, cheque arrived 2 weeks later for 193.00 stating that the phones had been downgraded on inspection, and no chargers, what a load of rubbish, asked for the phones back and got told there would be a 20 pound admin fee, asked for someone to ring me and no-one did, e-mailed, got no response, so i ended up having to cash the cheque in case i ended up with nothing at all, i'm absolutely disgusted and angry… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/02/2011

Just like everyone else 'reviewing' SellOldPhone.co.uk on this site (and others), I have fallen for one of the oldest scams on the internet.

If you are reading these reviews before dealing with them, then DON 'T SEND THEM ANYTHING. If it's too late and you've already fallen for the scam, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE report them to Tyne & Wear Council's Trading Standards and also the the BBC "Watchdog" page. You're not going to get what the website told you you'd get, you may (like an awful lot of… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/02/2011 by annmcavoy (2 reviews written)

If I could give them a 0 rating I would. I wish I'd found this review site before I sent off my Nokia that they promised £75 for. Instead I received £46 due to condition & sending no charger. This phone was in great condition & I was never asked for a charger. (No other site asks for a charger). Pure rip off & I'll be reporting them to Trading Standards. Don't touch them with a barge pole! I am so, so angry… Read Full Review

PLEASE DO NOT TRADE WITH THEM!!!

I sent my 2 phone in good working condition and the very next day the status was set as payment sent and its been 3 weeks now i haven;t recieved anything. Sent 2 emails to them, but no response at all. There is no phone no. on the site to contact them. Only thing I can think of is to go legal with this company now.

My sincere advise, keep away with this site.

Written on: 13/02/2011

I used these monkeys for the first time when I upgraded to the iPhone 4 as the offered a significantly higher amount of money than any other mobile phone recycler. Big mistake - I have previously used Envirofone with no hassle - prompt payment and always in full.
It took them over 6 weeks to pay up and I received a cheque for £15 less than I expected - they stated that the screen was scratched and that the handset was in poor cosmetic order, which was most definitely not the case. Lesson… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/02/2011

I like a lot of you, have also been conned by this so called company. The phone was sent over three weeks ago, and the status went to 'Payment Sent' the next day!
Still waiting, I suspect that if I do get anything, it'll be nowhere near the £83 I was told. Like the rest of you, there was nothing wrong with the phone I sent, it was kept in a case and it even had a screen protector on it! But no doubt I will be sent a pack of lies!
I still have the IEMI number for the phone, could I report the… Read Full Review
