Very easy to deal with. They never quibble about the condition of the phone like other companies do. Highly recommended!!


Great - very fast and efficient.


Quoted me a price and that's what I got paid and all very quick. I hadn't read the terms properly and so hadn't realised that I had to pay the postage which was not the case with some of the other offers I had. That said it was still a good price and a hassle free transaction.
