“Worst Service Ever”

They replace phones with 2nd hand ones, that don't work, stay away from this company, & take ages to answer an email, or send an replacement… Read Full Review

“Cheaper than your phone company and probably better...”

Written on: 17/07/2015

Have been with Citymain (insurance2go)for several years now. Had to make my first claim last month and I could not be happier with the service. Citymain offer the cheapest most comprehensive mobile phone insurance I am aware of at only £6.99 per month, which includes cover for water damage and loss. Excesses are very reasonable too at set prices of £25 for damage and £50 for loss. I only communicate with the team by email and have had quick and full responses from the staff, with… Read Full Review

“Not as bad as they say!”

Written on: 10/07/2015 by 414Bailey (1 review written)

I had my iPhone 6 stolen abroad. Luckily just before I flew out I decided to get travel insurance which included optional gadget insurance. Within 3 days of my holiday I was pickpocketed and my phone was stolen along with cards and cash. I reported the loss to the Spanish police, got the necessary documents and made sure my phone company blocked the phone and sim. On my return I phoned up my travel insurers to find out that my cover wasn't through them but actually Citymain. I was… Read Full Review

“waste of money”

Written on: 05/07/2015 by LaurelStephens55 (1 review written)

The insurance policy for my new HTC M8 cost £59.99 and I paid £50 excess when I made a claim on losing my device. I have lost my phone which cost nearly £600 and it's cost me £110 to received a refurbished HTC M8 as a replacement in settlement of my claim! The refurbished device was not charged or official updates installed so obviously it wasn't checked for issues before sending it to me... It intermittently crashes and HTC warnings are received. I've complained to Citymain about this and… Read Full Review

“S6 Edge Glass Repair”

Written on: 21/06/2015

Whilst NOT impressed by myself breaking the glass I was more than impressed by Citymain/Insurance2go. Quick, clear and precise email communication, informing me exactly what to do every step of the way. From sending to receipt of my repaired phone took exactly 7 days. A no quibble, "do" exactly what they say Insurance company, rare in this day and age. Perhaps an email to confirm receipt of the phone at the repairers and another to say when it should be back would have be a bonus BUT… Read Full Review

“Waste of time and money ”

Written on: 11/06/2015 by KayleeH (1 review written)

Without fail my phone always comes back with new problems and its existing ones barely repaired. Slow service. You have to pay to send off your own phone. Claims now must be done online which is terrible as if just say, like me you only have a iPhone for Internet, it's impossible to claim. Phone takes ages to come back and get little or no communication to say they have received it. After bugging them it will suddenly come back quickly so what were they doing with it if they can fix it that… Read Full Review

“The Underwriter of my insurance policy changed and my...”

Written on: 03/06/2015 by linhnguyen (5 reviews written)

The Underwriter of my insurance policy changed and my direct debit was cancelled. However they forgot to set up the new direct debit as they said to me and when I need to make a calim, they said that I cancelled my direct debit. I called my bank to ask about that and was informed that the company did it not my bank. It is ok if they cancelled the old one but the problem is they did not set up the new one and blame that error on me. I am not suffering from amnesia, If i do it, there is not… Read Full Review

“Slow Service but Friendly Staff”

Written on: 21/05/2015 by Zara426 (1 review written)

I registered my claim with city main and the process took a few days for me to get all the documents to them as requested (waiting for network to email these to me) once they had everything they needed I got a email stating my claim had been accepted 1 day later. I was then asked to pay my £100 excess towards my Samsung galaxy s6 and once this was received they would send out a replacement handset to cover the loss of my device however this does take 3-5 working days and I don't think it helps… Read Full Review

“Lost phone - the test of good mobile phone insurance.”

Written on: 15/05/2015 by JohnGass (1 review written)

I had the misfortune to lose my phone whilst travelling home after suffering a panic attack. Because of my mental distress, all I knew for sure was that I lost the phone on my journey home which involved multiple buses. Compounding the difficulty, the Metropolitan Police no longer process or accept reports of lost property. I think these circumstances might give other mobile phone insurance companies excuses to try to dodge the claim. Not so with Citymain. Rather than use the online claim… Read Full Review

“Worked for me !”

Written on: 08/05/2015 by Me808 (1 review written)

My experience was just over a year ago to be fair ! I'd lost my phone and hadn't really realised I was insured . Took a couple of weeks but got a replacement quite quickly . I've written this review now as I'm just looking at cancelling the policy of which is on my bank statement . I don't have the phone anymore . I was happy to get a replacement I phone at the time . Looking back though .... I don't think I'd be a phone snob and pay a fortune for a phone OR insurance now ! People are… Read Full Review

“Avoid this may seem a bargain but trust me it's not!”

Written on: 21/04/2015 by Zaria259 (1 review written)

Horrendous service! Not only have I been waiting 5 weeks for a replacement mobile phone they send out the wrong model and state that the replacement is not colour specific! I had a mobile phone sent in a piece of bubble wrap, no box, no letter nothing. A shoddy company, budget doesn't cover it. And you may think you are saving money in terms of premium, but when you have to also pay of £55 in line rental due to the snail pace service you are better off paying out and getting a replacement in… Read Full Review

Theses people are unbelievably useless. They have sent three faulty phones to me as replacement and are claiming there is nothing wrong with the third one they have sent. I am left with a phone that can not pick up signals and I are claiming there is nothing wrong with it. At the moment I am at a lost as to what I am going to do next but I intend to fight to the very end as I have paid for the service… Read Full Review

“Slow, slow and slow!”

Written on: 06/02/2015 by 237Somerville (1 review written)

I have insurance with Switched On Insurance. When it came to making a claim I filled in all the details on the form and awaited an email/ call. I received an email a few days later saying I needed proof of purchase, which I thought would be no problem. I thought wrong. I got in touch with Virgin who said they'd send me a letter with my purchase date on and other details, the first letter they sent had the wrong details on. Guess what, the second did too! I then finally got a third letter… Read Full Review

“Felt valued - worth the price!”

Written on: 03/02/2015 by Thurston333 (1 review written)

Being a customer that has been with Insurance2Go for a long time, I've experienced both Citymains paper and online claims process. The paper process seemed archaic and I think they realised this by changing to an online process. It's so simple, so easy, no hassle and no troubles. 2 working days to assess a claim is nothing considering the amount of customers hey have and I felt a valued customer come the authorisation of my claim. One thing that needs to be noted, the reviews do not reflect… Read Full Review

“CITY MAIN KEEP TAKING DIRECT DEBITS - JAN 2015”

Written on: 29/01/2015 by 211Ball (1 review written)

Cancelled my insurance with Citymain Administrators and received a very unprofessional letter from Buymobilephones.net saying the insurance had been cancelled and all payments would be cancelled from the date of the letter. Well on the 21st January I noticed my regular payment had been taken from my account. I wasnt happy. I am with Barclays so I immediately cancelled my direct debit with them online. I wish I had cancelled it earlier but I believed them when they wrote and confirmed my… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/11/2014 by guyolliff (1 review written)

Helpful staff member to start off with over the phone, clarified what I could claim for and how long this would take in an approachable way. Later speaking through emails the first few were very prompt, slight lag after the first two or three however I think this was down to my phone provider and different matching serial codes (seriously double check these, if in doubt stick every bit of info you can in the email, saves a bunch of hassle!) after this was sorted, happy days sent off. Moral of… Read Full Review
