“I’d give 0 stars if I could ”

Written on: 27/03/2021 by Mowgley (1 review written)

Absolute shambles of a company. I was quoted £180 for a very decent condition iPhone XR. They made up damage saying the phone wouldn’t turn on and screen was damaged. They did a revised offer of £95. Back and forward and they upped it 3 times to £135. Asked for my phone back. Was told would take 5 days. Chased Wednesday and was told definitely would be back with me thursday. It’s not arrived. They have had my phone for over 2 weeks now and I’m getting worried about the state it’s… Read Full Review

“Avoid. Terrible service. ”

Written on: 23/11/2020 by Rick1fm (1 review written)

Sent my immaculate iPhone 8plus after phones2pounds giving me the best offer. Then they offered my £100 less because they said there was extensive scratching on the screen. There was not. I reluctantly accepted the offer because I needed the money quickly. They said it was same day money transfer. I have now been waiting for 4 days. There customer service number rings through to a full voice Mail box. They haven’t responded to 3 emails. So now I have no money and no phone… Read Full Review

“Company claims to pay out same day if you handset...”

Written on: 07/09/2020 by TobiasB (1 review written)

Company claims to pay out same day if you handset arrives before 1PM, handset delivered and processed in at 9am by the companys own records. No payment that day, no email to confirm why this is delayed, no response to email asking for clarification as to why there is a delay. Now approaching 96 hours without a response and my handset is still with them and likely being sold on without me being paid out for it. Telephone number to call for support does not go anywhere as either option goes to… Read Full Review

“This company took my phone ”

Written on: 18/02/2020 by MichaelMyers79 (1 review written)

This company took my phone. Do not use this company you are probably better off going to CEX. Sent my phone in after being quoted £100 for my iPhone. Took over 20 pictures of my phone and the packing process. Then PTOP said due to deep scratches we’ll offer £70. When I declined the offer and requested proof of the ‘deep’ scratches because I have photos proving no scratches I received a revised offer of £85 which I declined now they not returning my phone I then tried to accept the… Read Full Review

Excellent service end to end. Starting right from booking - receiving prepaid packing envelope - despatch - receipt of payment in account. All this done in pretty good time. I will certainly recommend this to my other friends and use this facility myself again when my current phone gets old or breaks… Read Full Review

Obvious cover up by staff. Absolutely terribke service. Just like the other bad reviews... falsi claims and sent me back the wrong phone. Said they would fix the problem but won't give me an update and is the 3rd day they haven't reponded ti my email for update on the situation.
I'm currently looking to get a small claims court involved.

Send them an LBA (Letter before Action) You can normally find a decent enough template online. I sent them one - they have come back to me immediately although it was with a revised offer but at least they have responded.

“NEVER USE THEM”

Written on: 23/06/2019 by SFalcon (1 review written)

I recently upgraded my handset and was looking to sell my iPhone 6 which was in good condition and working order. I firstly used the comparison website sellmymobile.com - where phones2pounds where offering me £76 for my iPhone 6. I had sold my old handsets to Mazuma mobile in the past with no problems, I have always been honest about the condition of my old phones and have always been paid the agreed amount and been paid quickly by Mazuma mobile. On this occasion as phones2pounds we’re… Read Full Review

“Chancers”

Written on: 07/01/2019 by Noe105 (1 review written)

I researched various phone "re-cyclers". This company had decent feedback on Trust Pilot. I have to assume the reviews were by employees or their family/mates. The iPhone 5s I sent was unmarked. They informed me that it was sctatched in various places and deducted a considerable amout from their offer. I think their method is get the phone, offer less, rely on it being too much bother to reject. I did reject and the phone was returned. I ended up getting the original payment from another… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/04/2018 by Harvacious (1 review written)

They recieved my phone yesterday and the offer went from £300 down to £180. Due to wear and tear which they said classed it as working, they have now said its classed as broken? I have been emailing all yesterday and this morning with a few responses yesterday. I have been on hold for probably a total of 4 or 5 hours, the phones actually connected a few times but they hang up straight away. They now have my phone, and are refusing to get back to me to either send it back or just send me the… Read Full Review
