“Very disappointing customer service experience and...”

Written on: 18/01/2022 by Ayden130 (1 review written)

Very disappointing customer service experience and unreliable phones. I ordered a refurbished iPhone X in May 21 from Affordable Mobiles having seen on the website that a 12 month warranty is offered on the handsets.

Since I’ve had it, I’ve had several issues with the phone switching itself off and not turning back on, front camera not working, phone not charging and finally in early Dec phone not taking any charge and eventually battery completely died and phone unusable.

I called customer services in early Dec, was advised that repairs now take up to 28 days as it’s Christmas time. There is no mention of a 28 day turn around time on their website but had no choice but to send it to them, hope that the phone could be repaired or a replacement sent as I haven’t got a spare phone to put my Sim in to.

After 25 days of the repairers receiving my phone, I called and was advised that there was no update and that this would be escalated to senior team and I would be updated within 48 hrs. No update came so following this up, was told that a replacement handset would be sent out if no update could be given on day. I called on day 28, still no update on phone repair, I asked for a replacement phone to be sent out and was advised they didn’t have any phones in stock but that senior team are looking into this and would be in contact. It is now day 38 since I posted my phone off, and 33 days that the repairers have had my phone. No sign of any updates, no confirmation of a replacement phone being sent off and every time I check what is happening I am told that this is being looked into and they will respond in another 48 hours. I have asked to speak to the senior team several times but this has been refused.

I will now be seeking advise from trading standards and would advise others to read all the 1 star reviews on other review websites before considering to use this company.
