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 more)

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...

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 more)

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 more)

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 more)

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 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... (read more)

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 more)

I was very reluctant to send my phone to Sheffield from Chester but all the local companies were either too expensive or they didn’t fill me with confidence that they knew what they were doing. To begin with my phone did not arrive at the Sheffield address by the promised time and although this didn't really have anything to do with them, the staff at the FoneFunShop (Jade, Mark and Lloyd) were very sympathetic and helped me on how to locate my phone through the Royal Mail Special...

Over the last two weeks I have sent two Nokias - an E61i and a Nokia E72 for debranding, and getting rid of that dreadful Orange and T Mobile software originally included on the phones, and which slows the phones down dreadfully. I live in Spain, and was told that although unlocking is possible, debranding is not, although a recent visit to London confirmed that it was possible. I sent the first phone to Fun Fun Shop with some apprehension, as I had not used their services before. However,... (read more)

I got a new smartphone last week (well, secondhand), and then managed to drop it three days later. The result was a crack along the bottom of the screen. It was useable, but it didn't look good, and I was worried it would deteriorate, so I looked into getting it repaired. I found details of a couple of companies on the Net - FoneFunShop and another. Looking into the detail, I found that the other repairers were going to charge more, and they weren't going to match the colours of the buttons... (read more)

I requested a genuine part. Fault 1. When I got it back, the buttons under the screen did not respond. I sent it back to them, and they claimed that the pad under the buttons must have been damaged as well, but replaced it free of charge. Fault 2. When I got it... (read more)

Really happy with their response to my problems with the repair, and the cost. Would definitely recommend this repair service. (read more)

Also he explained why there had been a problem, which was useful. A pity the makers of my mobile (Nokia) could not have adopted such a helpful attitude when approached. It feels like a... (read more)
