Customer service - not good

I looked up deal on Samsung s3 on Prepaymania and thought that the price was good so placed an order on 7/04/2014 as the phone was in stock.
called them today 08/04/2014 in the morning and was told that the phone will be dispatched today by royal mail.
I called again later in the afternoon to check if the phone was on its way.
the customer service guy asked me to hold on and after a few minutes he said that the phone is out of stock and they were waiting for the stock to come and they may send the phone tomorrow.i already paid the money and now they say the phone is not in stock (it is on back order).i had sent them 3 messages but no one replied.
calling them on 0845 number is not cheap

be careful sold me a dodgy phone and then tries to charge for repair

really bad customer service. brought a blackberry 9360 off them 4 months ago then went all lines and couldn't use it. sent it back under warrenty for them to accuse me of tampering with it so will charge for repair as warrenty is void.i had to pay for repair which I disagreed with for the phone to be totally non repairable. why would I tamper with a phone so I don't have one. im fuming that they accused me of this. be very careful if buying from them especially if you want good customer service as they are rude by email and don't want to know once they've returned the non fixed phone back to you. buyer beware as obviously the phone was faulty in first place as a report stated they thought it was a faulty graphics chip which if id have known that it is a common fault wouldn't have brought the phone in first place

Right Price, Right Time and Great Customer Service

(This review if for the purchase of a phone, not the after sales service)

First of all like lots of web users I checked in many places and did try to get one of the big players to price match the PrePayMania with no success.

However after talking with "Sophie" a customer service rep through live chat I was put at ease about delivery, if something goes wrong with the phone, even if PrePayMania were to close (as its an online business).

Anyway I ordered on the bank holiday monday (a blackberry 9360 £30 cheaper than anywhere else), had the FREE delivery and expected it to arrive by friday. SO it was a great surprise when it arrived on thursday and throughout the delivery i was ale to track the parcel.

The phone was packaged well and seems to be working fine!

Thanks for reading - i know i took the time to read others and i'll repot back in 6 - 12 months.

Prepaymania has offered great discounts

We don’t tend to buy gadgets often. Due to my income, I would prefer to be safe than sorry. I did however purchase Nokia 100 as I had heard that PrePayMania were a reputable and trustworthy site. They offer a variety of products and great savings. After placing my order I received email confirmation, advising me of the delivery schedule and full details of my purchase. As promised, they delivered me the Nokia 100 well on time. The condition of the Nokia 100 was as stated and as displayed in the online image. Great service and highly recommended!

Blackberry phone never arrived & sent first class with no insurance as standard delivery

DO NOT Purchase via their website or Ebay from this company. I ordered a blackberry for my girl friend over 2 months ago & had to message on numerous occasions regarding the item which was never delivered. They post items 1st class as standard delivery which you do not receive. After a serious complaint they told me they would resend another Blackberry via recorded delivery & this never arrived either. The tracking number was invalid & never worked. Reported to Paypal & turns out because they have "proof" that they posted the item (probably a dodgy receipt scanned in and emailed to Paypal) they managed to get away with it. DO NOT USE ITS NOT WORTH IT!!!

Extraordinarily outstanding service!!!

I purchased a big button Foneranger mobile phone from this company in July 2012 through Amazon and received it within a couple of days.
From the outset I had problems charging the phone, it didn't seem to be holding the charge for very long and would switch off suddenly - even when connected to the charger the phone would not switch back on immediately and it took a long time to charge enough for any service.

YES THIS IS A POSITIVE REVIEW......
After struggling and putting it down to my lack of ability I contacted Prepaymania via their website where they have the facility to 'chat' to someone on their sales team. I explained my problem and was immediately offered a new battery by return of post to see if this would resolve the problem, if it didn't I was to get back in touch with them. My battery arrived the next day and I am glad to say that my phone is in better health than it has ever been!
I cannot recommend this company enough for their kindness, understanding and prompt action.

Awful, watch out

I bought a hands free kit from them, but they constantly say it's being dispatched, but nothing ever happens been waiting 4 days for my order to be dispatched now, yet they guarantee same day until 3:30pm.

Avoid.

Im glad I took the gamble

Wow, I read some really bad reviews on here and to tell you the truth I didn't really see the point in taking a risk buying from them with the negative things that have been written. However they were selling the Nokia 100 on O2 cheaper than anyone else I could fine and at £14.99 including £10 top up, I though I couldn't really lose that much...well I could lose £14.99 I guess. Anyway to cut a long story short I had nothing to worry about turned up today Via Royal Mail. Top up already applied to the Sim which is great considering I bought something like this before and forgot to register for the top up so did myself out of a tenner. Not the case here though. Ordered Friday, delivered Monday. I can't ask for more.

The best I found for my mum

I ordered PrePayMania Big button phone for my elderly mum who couldn`t handle the modern fiddly phone with lots of features. This phone does exactly what it says. It has big buttons, very easy to use. The display fonts are very clear and readable. Torch, SOS, loud ringtones so many necessary features at this price is really a bargain. This is a straightforward handy phone, the best for my mum.

Rubbish

after reading all reveiws i still decided to buy a samsung galaxy w from there ebay store. I called to check they had the stock in and they seemed very helpful and told me my order would be dispatched that day (friday) so monday came around and i was very excited about getting my new phone, i called the company just to check on my order to find that they hadnt dispatched it yet , but they were defanatly dispaching it today (monday) and i would recieve it Tuesday, so again very excited ive sat most of the day waiting, Having a bad feeling about this company i decided to call and check, to find out they havent dispatched the phone and now they r saying that there is a problem with the stock and they r opening all the boxes of phones to check them, they dont know when they will have another delivery or when they can send me a phone (sounds pretty dodgy to me, Opening all the phones, thought they had to be sealed when u recieved them.) I had no communication to tell me of the problems, surely good customer service would have been to tell me on friday when they didnt dispach the phone when they said they would.

Only good thing was they gave me a full refund after i cancelled my order with in 10 mins.

PLEASE DO NOT place an order from prepaymania until you have read the following review

I thought I had purchased a Xoom Case-mate cover for my beloved Xoom - as stated on the website front page "all orders in stock will be shipped same day" - NOT TRUE.

After waiting about a week for my order, I decided I would have to contact prepaymania and find out when my order was shipped. To my dismay I was told it would not be shipped for over 10 working days. Apparently even though the website states my product was in stock -and still does - and there website states same day shipping - they can still take my money and then order the product from someone else and falsely state the product is in stock - when it obviously is not.

Do not buy from this company - I canceled my order and purchased one in stock from another company (Morpeth Mobiles) who shipped it that afternoon, kept me informed through the order process and then I received my xoom cover via the postman the following morning - a good example of how a company should operate today.

Accused of removing IMEI sticker - invalodated the warranty.

I returned a "NEW" Samsung C3050 phone that had hardly been used, 3 months after purchase that just completeky died.
I had the phone returned saying they cannot help becasuse the warranty had been invalidated by ME removing the IMEI sticker from inside the phone. I certainly did not but who knows whether it was there when the phone was supplied new.
Having read other reviews of this supplier, I am asking for a full refund - will wait and see what happens.

BEWARE Prepaymania are a terrible company to deal with when things go wrong. 7 day returns policy, my phone went faulty after 19 days they didn't want to know. Forced to return and wait 6 weeks for repair. When phone came back it was still faulty, sent back 2 weeks ago and still waiting. Customer service are rude constant hang ups, PLEASE DO NOT BUY PLEASE DO NOT SUPPORT THESE PEOPLE

Terrible

I bought a pay as you go Orange Blackberry (curve 8520) from prepaymania and after just 4 months the screen began to fade, coupled with numerous vertical lines across it. I contacted prepaymania via e-mail (you cannot call then and speak to someone, there is no number listed), and after a day waiting for a response they told me to take it to carphone wharehouse! The bloke in carphone warehouse said as it was Orange, they couldnt touch it, and the guy in the Orange shop didnt want to know either and gave me a number for Orange customer support . . . . . .Round and round I went. Orange customer support told me to conact the people I bought it from (Prepaymania.co.uk), which I could only do through e-mail. . . . .. As a customer, my contract is with prepaymania and they should be responsible for the return / warranty. In short - avoid this shop, they sell it cheap, but don't care if it goes wrong.

Superb

I was really surprised to find a holder for my BB Curve 8520 at only £2.75. It was suspicious a bit at start, but I searched for the reviews of PrePayMania and trustpilot helped me to get some good reviews about them. This is the reason I am sharing my experience on Trustpilot with PrePayMania only after I received my holder. I received my holder on the very 2nd day and it was as showcased on the website. My BB curve perfectly fits to the holder; it is a flexible holder and can fit many handsets. It also helps my wife to fit her wildfire on the same holder; she is happy for the first time with my choice :). Superb product quality with the best pricing and delivered much on time.

Brilliant

I've bought 2 handsets from prepaymania. The 2nd more recent handset developed a fault within the first week, it turned out to be a comman fault with that model was advised to return for a refund as they had no more stock, refund was received in 4 days. No problems at all & very friendly helpful staff.
