New phone, cash & free Wii...

Advantagesgood service, prompt, excellent deals

Disadvantagesthe ID giving process is a chore!!

"About this time last year, one of my work friends got her phone upgraded, and then a couple of weeks later, she received a free ipod. I was absolutely amazed - and could have kicked myself as I had only had an upgrade on my mobile a month or so before. She had been told about this great site called "Buymobilephones.net" by a friend and had given it a go. I forgot all about it until I had the usual pesky phone call from my service provider about ..." Read review

Buymobilephones.net

AdvantagesGood deals and quick sending gifts

DisadvantagesEmails dont seem to get replied too

"I recently was after getting a Ipod touch but after finding prices averaging of £250 for the 16Gb i decided to look about for deals offering them for free with phone contracts as i had just under 2 month remaining on my current contract. I eventually found number of places but thought for a £35 per month contract over 12 month and free 16gb Ipod touch included with that buymobilephones.net for me offered the best deal so i googled and found quite ..."

I feel conned by BuyMobilePhones

AdvantagesGood choice of phones

DisadvantagesThey avoid paying all cashback claims, difficult to contact, uncommunative

"...buy a contract phone from BuyMobilePhones as they offered a good selection on their website and had the phone I wanted. I purchased a Nokia with a 12 month cashback contract. I applied for my first cashback claim after the first five bills (and line rental charges of £30 a month), only to be told that I sent my claim in too early! No problem I say, I'll send it in again next month. No apparently because I sent my claim in early (I didn't) ..." Read review

Buy Blackberry 9700 Bold on Orange contract

Advantagesnone

Disadvantagesnot ready to solve a serious problem

"I have bought a Blackberry 9700 Bold and Orange contract from this company in January 2010 which has been by biggest regret of my life. Since that time, I have been unable to have a full conversation on the phone on either 2G or 3G setting – the line is continually cut off. They have exchanged my phone 3 time as i thought i have a faulty phone but actually i was a faulty network and they didn't tell me when i signed up on the net in January 2010. ..." Read review

Quick review of BuyMobilePhones

"Purchased my mobile phone from this company on one of their cashback offers. What a JOKE! I sent the first claim in on time and eventually discovered that I hadn't included all of the first five bills, only the fifth one, hence my claim was disallowed. Unfortunately they didn't tell me until it was too late and only after thounding them via email. Apparently ALL future claims are now void. I'll never deal with this company again and recommend everyone elase to do the same. There are good firms out there with cash back deals, such as mobileshop.com. Its just that this crowd aren't one of them. AVOID!

Poor Customer Service

Advantagesgreat choice of mobiles, Fast delivery

DisadvantagesVery Poor After sales support

"...got a Fault code, contacted Buymobilephones that I was sending in a faulty phone, no probs so far, buymobilephones contact me the phone isn't faulty and claimed I didn't ring orange for a Fault code. I rang orange again to be told the code was still valid, Seem these con-artists only care for sales and taking your money, any problems they try to pass on to someone else. Even accused me in damaging the phone but there's no damage, A dirty tactic. And ..." Read review

"MUST READ AFTER READING SOME OF THE ARTICLES ON THIS FORUM IN REGARDS TO BUYMOBILEPHONES.NET, I WAS VERY SURPRISED TO SEE SUCH NEGATIVE FEEDBACK FROM THIS BUSINESS, AND THE REASON FOR THIS IS THAT I HAVE JUST RECENTLY BOUGHT PRODUCTS FROM THEM AND THE DEAL THAT I GOT WOULD BE VERY DIFFICULT TO BEAT.

Never again

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesClaiming cashback, customer services

"I bought my Samsung D600 in December 2005 from this company and never again would I buy from this them. When it first arrived, the tariff was wrong and it took about 3 months to sort out with o2 (buymobilephones did not want to know). I made my first claim for cashback after month 4 and it took them 3 months, 3 emails and 2 telephone calls by me for them to send me any money. My second claim for cashback was refused. After more emails and another ..." Read review

I didn't buy in the end!

AdvantagesPhone system, Courteous and effective staff

DisadvantagesUnable to tell me when I would get my phone

"I ordered an HTC Desire which was showing as due in stock the following day. However when I received my order confirmation by email, it showed a delivery expected within 10-15 working days. I phoned the following day and got through easily and spoke to a very helpful lady. I did a bit of further investigation during the course of the day and decided to cancel my order and to order from elsewhere on a different network. So I phoned again and got through ..." Read review

AVOID BuyMobilePhones.net, I haven't ever been conned as much!

AdvantagesPhone is good condition, but buymobilephones is bad in may opinion

DisadvantagesIts hard to list all disadvantages in a single line!

"They are a trouble to deal with. I was told that they don't have good record with cash-back, still we did take the risk because it was the cheapest deal. My cousin got a good phone, but is struggling with cash-back and dealing with buymobilephones.net. I thought that if I read all their terms& conditions, then there might not be a problem. But its not worth taking risk, because some of thier conditions are such that its hard for users to surpass them. ..." Read review
