Advantages Lots of good priced items and well presented website.
Disadvantages It does take a while to get through on the phone to customer services.
I came across this website when I was looking for a Bluetooth adapter and headset for my non-Bluetooth Nokia 6610. I had checked out various other websites from the main mobile phone retailers and other online shopping websites, but mobilefun had the best prices for mobile phone accessories. Here are just a few price comparisons.Sony Ericsson HBH-660 Bluetooth Headset
Sony Ericsson HBH-600 Bluetooth Headset
Carphone warehouse charge £79.99
mobilefun charge £44.95
Motorola HS801 Bluetooth headset
Carphone warehouse charge £39.99
mobilefun charge £38.95
Once I had decided to order from mobilefun I then went about choosing what to buy. The website is very easy to navigate through, with links to grouped/similar items. The website also tells you what mobile phone the accessory is compatible with, which I found very useful. Having a relatively old mobile phone, I was able to find out straight away if the Bluetooth adapter and headset I had chosen would work with my mobile phone. There is also a customer service phone line and email address. My experience with mobilefun customer services has been very good. My initial order of the Jabra BT200 Bluetooth Headset for non-Bluetooth Nokia phones had been discontinued and I was emailed by Mr Tim Davies (mobilefun customer service manager) telling me that I could choose a different item or get a full refund. He was very helpful in suggesting which alternative item I should buy and here is what I ordered in the end.1x Jabra BT250 Bluetooth Headset = £37.95
My reason for choosing the Jabra set is because of the 8 hours talk time and 240 hours standby.To purchase something from mobilefun is the same as any other online shopping website. It hosts secure payment transactions so there is no need to worry about your credit card details going online. Other methods of payment are cheque, postal order, telephone, direct bank deposit, and bank transfer. I find using my credit card online is the fastest method of paying.
Delivery cost is £2.50 for Standard UK delivery by Royal Mail First Class Recorded Delivery per order. There is also the more expensive and faster Guaranteed next working day UK delivery by Royal Mail Special Delivery at £5 per order and the Standard EU (European Union) delivery by Royal Mail First Class International Recorded Delivery Standard EU (European Union) delivery at £4.50 per order. I was in no rush so I opted for the standard UK delivery.I waited only 2 days for my items to arrive. I am glad that I did not waste money on buying from the main mobile phone retailers. It's hard to decide which mobile phone website to buy from nowadays because there seem to be so many. You just don't know which one is reliable and trust worthy. Having dealt with mobilefun, I can honestly tell you that from now on I will buy all my mobile phone gadgets from them in full confidence.
The only bad thing I can say about mobilefun, is that it does take a few minutes to get through to them by phone.mobilefun - please please get some more phone lines!!!
Thanks Tim, you're a helpful chap.
