“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”

Written on: 17/12/2019 by Connell146 (1 review written)

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

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

“Lied about the value, don't answer calls....avoid”

Written on: 18/12/2017 by 1964Graves (1 review written)

Offered £125 through a comparison site for my Samsung Galaxy S6. It was in very good condition - no cracks, scratches etc. When Phones2Pounds received it, they said they could only offer £63, due to scratches and poor body condition. They clearly work on the basis that most people will accept this, and don't answer their phones on any number you call. Eventually, I sent an email saying I wanted my mobile back. They replied 2 days later, saying it would take 5 working days to return. When… Read Full Review

“AVOID AT ALL COSTS”

Written on: 16/12/2017 by Humphries269 (1 review written)

Phones2POunds are an absolutely appalling company to deal with, even though they are recommended by many comparison websites. I was offered £140 for my Samsung Galaxy 6 Edge, then when they received the phone they said they could only offer me £30! They emailed saying there was LCD damage and scratching - there was not! Then they tried to tell me these were common faults with Galaxy phones and I should Google it! When I said I wouldn't accept the £30 offer, they said they would up it to… Read Full Review

“A trap. Avoid at all costs”

Written on: 01/11/2017 by RomanO'Connor (1 review written)

Y his company will quote you the best price on comparison sites to get you to send the phone to them but once you've done that here's the trap; they receive a pristine condition phone and then reduce the offer claiming it has damage. Anything from faults to bezel and cosmetic damage and they will knock a huge chunk of your offer. You then decline and they increase the offer.. But then with delayed responses, you end up cutting your losses with a reduced offer. Even if they send it back, if… Read Full Review

Sent perfectly working Samsung 6edge to sell as upgraded.was offered £162 but surprise surprise when they got phone it was apparently so damaged it was only worth £50 and if I wanted it back it'd cost me £10. Had phone been damaged I'd have noticed. Took from 8th-21st to get paid and that was only after threat of trading standards due to constantly ignoring my emails. I'd rather donate phone to charity than give these people any more chances to cheat folk. Avoid at all costs… Read Full Review
