“I had my insurance with them and had my mobile stolen....”

Written on: 06/09/2014

I had my insurance with them and had my mobile stolen. After submitting a crime ref number they said it wasn't enough and that I had to show that I had physically attempted to fight the thief. Absolutely ludicrous. Don't waste your money. Customer service rubbish too… Read Full Review

I purchased a platinum policy with City Main (£9.99 a month). 7 months into policy i had my bag stolen while abroad which contained my phone. I obtained a police crime number (took me 3 days of my holiday) and submitted a claim. 4 days after submitting the claim i received an email from city main stating the claim would not be processed due to the following hidden small print clauses:- 1. The certificate does not cover, theft of the mobile device whilst in any form of public transport or… Read Full Review

“Under no circumstances should you purchase mobile...”

Written on: 13/08/2014 by 30Rafferty (1 review written)

Under no circumstances should you purchase mobile phone insurance with City Main Administrators. 1. When my daughter dropped her phone I tried to make a claim. The process is longwinded and they will not pay out under any circumstances.! You might as well not have phone insurance. 2. City Main Administrators have been taking 5.99 out of my bank account for the last 2 years even though my daughter does not have her phone any longer. She has not had it since 2012! I wrote to them but did not… Read Full Review

“Beyond words, do NOT, do NOT do NOT insure with this...”

Written on: 12/08/2014 by Crazybird45 (1 review written)

Dropped my iphone5 by accident at the beginning of the year, and as I had the money I changed it at a shop and paid for it myself. In June I dropped that phone and had to claim on my insurance as I couldn't afford to pay for it myself this time around. I called them, they sent claim form. I filled it in sent it back. It was 2 weeks and I still hadn't heard from them, so I called them. They said that as the IMEI number was different to the one I had given them when I took the insurance out they… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/07/2014

Sent in my HTC One SILVER for repair. Received my phone back HTC One BLUE.(Bright blue) Phoned them to ask why this was. They stated my phone was beyond repair, and only blue was available (Don't think so some how) But please note all policies are not colour specific. Shame it wasn't pink to match my new tie.

I took out FULL iphone cover with them via Insurance 2 go(liability covering over £700) then Lost my virtually brand new Iphone 5c which was on contract so went ahead and made a claim and paid the £75 excess it says on the F&Q section that if your phone is on contract they will cover the full replacement cost of the value of the phone but they have simply sent me a refurbished one(otherwise known as second hand)stuck to a piece of cardboard not even in a box or anything ! When I rang up they… Read Full Review

“Would not accept my claim”

Written on: 17/07/2014 by jenhen07 (1 review written)

Just after buying my brand new I phone 5s I choose this company to insure my device. On new year less than a month from buying my phone, it was stolen by a taxi driver. City main denied my claim quoting 'you gave your bag to third party' despite the fact I explained that I was locked in the taxi and threatened until I handed over my bag. This traumatic experience as not enough. My argument was that I was alone in a taxi, vulnerable and if you are threatened and feel that violated that giving… Read Full Review

“There are many ins. companies out there. DO NOT USE...”

Written on: 14/07/2014 by welshdr (1 review written)

I have had ins with them for months for Both my children's I phones.my youngest, 14, dropped hers smashing the screen. They declined the claim because she was under 18. I stated when I bought it that it was for my daughter and tho it is probably in the small print somewhere, I wasn't made aware of it. Been paying 14 quid a month for 18 months only to find I can't claim when I need to. If you have this firms ins. already and need to claim. Don't tell them your under 18 year old dropped or… Read Full Review

“Brilliant ”

Written on: 03/07/2014 by Ericksonob117 (1 review written)

Can't fault them. Smashed the screen on my iphone so requested a claim. Claim accepted within 3 days and was given the option to either send phone away to a London address or take it to my local apple store for repair through the Genius Bar. Although I had to pay the initial charge of £119 to apple, plus the £50 excess charge, I received the £119 back into my account the following week after submitting my receipts. Would Definately recommend to anyone with an iphone. Genius Bar fixed my… Read Full Review

“Q”

Written on: 22/06/2014 by SFJnet (1 review written)

I got this insurance for our tablet because it was fairly cheap for the cover they said was offered and there are so many bad stories about mobile/gadget insurance that I wasnt going to pay a fortune. Anyway after about 6 months we had an accident with our tablet and cracked the screen. I called Switched On and the fellow was quite pleasant and efficient. He told me how to claim so we did it online and sent in the required proof of purchase etc. In just a couple of days they were back in… Read Full Review

“My experience has been faultless.”

Written on: 16/06/2014 by Rhili (3 reviews written)

6 weeks ago my mobile phone broke and I initiated a claim with City Main. The process was very straight forward and my phone was fixed in reasonable time. The day my phone arrived back, I broke it again - I couldn't believe it!! I wasn't going to contacts the company again because I didn't think they would let me submit another claim. But, I did contact them and without any fuss they asked me to submit another claim. The claim was approved and the process began. It took exactly two weeks to… Read Full Review

“A bit slow but effective, Great phone customer service!”

Written on: 21/05/2014 by Lane484 (1 review written)

Our house was burgled and our computers were stolen. Luckily we had insurance (through switched on insurance). We submitted a claim, which was accepted. I must say our case was very uncontroversial, since the thieves smacked a glass to enter our house. In any case they accepted our claim within their declared time (two working days). Our computers were ordered (after they debited our excess of course) and it took them a bit longer than the stated 5 working days, although this happened… Read Full Review

“Replacement phone had dodgy battery”

Written on: 18/05/2014 by JusticeChapman1 (1 review written)

To their credit they have agreed to refund it but not acceptable to supply a phone with a dodgy battery. Especially as I had to take them to Lloyds of London to even get them to honour the contract I had with the insurer. You get what you pay for. If they deny you your claim then fight them all the way. First go Lloyds of London and from there to the financial ombudsmen. This will pressure them to settle as it's a costly process (for them and lloyds; making the complaint is free)… Read Full Review
