Found these dirt bags on a comparison site and in good faith, as they promised the most for my Nokia 3200, I packaged and posted my "old faithful" to them. About a week later I received a mail from them claiming the package had arrived but the phone was missing. Yeah, right! They probably resell the phones for a massive profit to some poor 3rd world country. DO NOT USE THEM!!!! (read more)

I sent a Galaxy S11 in perfect condition fully boxed. Received email to say they were deducting 10% due to damaged. Tried to call to find out what the damage was and didn't get any responses. So decided to accept payment. This was 3 wks ago. Despite leaving many voice messages and emailing almost daily I have had no response by either email or phone. My last email was to say if they didn't respond within 48 hrs I'm going to take it to trading standards. Still nothing. I will be contacting... (read more)

My experience with cashininmyfone has been terrible. Having used a competitor in the past with no problems i was lured away by cashinmyfone's higher offer. I sent an HTC Desire handset to them via Special Delivery and despite them signing for it on a Friday, it wasn't until the following Wednesday that they emailed their acknowledgement. A few minutes later they emailed to state they were willing to offer 25% less due to 'damage' I emailed to enquire what the damage was as the handset... (read more)

I sent my phone to this company after being quoted 25 pounds. once they received the phone they told me it was damaged and quoted me 21 pounds which I accepted. After not hearing from them for 2 and a half weeks, not receiving the money and reading these reviews I am really worried I will never see this money. Thank god it's not much but it still frustrating. I have emailed the company twice and rung once and left a voice mail. I will be reporting this company to the police for fraud if... (read more)

Like many others, this company claimed that my old iPhone arrived with a cracked back even though it was sent off in excellent condition via Royal Mail special delivery. They offered me £20 less than they had originally.
No smoke without fire I'd say. Looking at the other reviews on here, you might think this was some kind of scam. (read more)

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY TO RECYCLE YOUR MOBILE PHONE.
Cashinmyfone is the biggest scam going, if you don't send your phone recorded delivery and use the freepost envelope (because at the end of the day why wouldn't it arrive this way?!?!) you will not get your money. You will be told that your mobile phone has not been received and has been lost in the post. If you contact them by email you will receive a standard email back saying that they are experiencing postal delays in the Cheshire... (read more)

Having read these reviews, I have come to the conclusion that the majority of us have had a shocking experience with cashedinyourfone, sorry, I mean cashinyourfone ! Three weeks is totally unacceptable and blaming Royal Mail isn't good enough. I suspect the review dated 4th Feb 2011 may well be one written by themselves given the glowing comments. FINALLY received payment for my phone after lengthy discussions with them regarding ombudsmen and BBC Watchdog, avoid this company (read more)

She was very professional and provided useful information. I provide Nicola my IMEI number to help track down the... (read more)

As with most of the recent reviews was offered £196.00 only to get an email 2 days after phone sent to be told it is damaged and would offer £88.00.

Be very careful if you are considering this route! I have just had my £197 bid for my iPhone 3G 16gb reduced to just £88 because of a tiny crack in the case. They must have put the phone under a microscope to find it as it was otherwise immaculate. I refused the offer and am having the phone returned.
I emailed them to complain and stated this was a common iPhone wear point, but they were very blas saying it was damage and is worth less to them in this condition therefore their offer was... (read more)

Surprise Surprise...having bought an iPhone 4 I was happy to be offered the £196 for my iPhone 3.

Just like the two reviews below...
Sold an iPhone 3G 16GB for £196.79 (supposedly).
Sent it off special delivery as directed (cost £5.50)
They acknowledged receipt one day after it was delivered to them and promptly offered £88.55 instead as it had a crack on the back.
To be fair the phone did have a small (invisible) crack on the back, but that's a massive reduction in price!
Avoid like the plague is my advice. They say it will take up to 14 days to return the phone once you reject their... (read more)

I cannot fault the service from cashinmyfone. At first I was skeptical because it did seem too good to be true. They offered £75 for my original N95 and having had the phone 2 and a half years and it being a bit battered I didn't think I would get top whack. Especially after reading a few reviews similar to those on this website.

I received the envelope from Cashinmyfone.com to post my phone quickly after applying online. I then sent the phone off and waited a few days. After a couple of days I hadn't received an email about the phone being received so I happened to search for reviews and came across this site and a few others. These made me a little wary of the company and I then had thoughts of not receiving the money I had been promised as there seems to be a lot of horror stories. I decided just to wait and a few...

I got quoted £135 for selling my 3 month old Nokia N86 MP. I sent it recorded delivery to be safe and they tested it straight away. They offered £40 based on 'an LCD fault', which, on researching, seems to be a problem with the screen. The phone was 3 months old, in perfect condition and no problem with the screen. It was packaged in three (!) bubble wrap envelopes (not just the one they send you), so did not get damaged in transit. I have rejected the offer and they are sending it... (read more)
