phoneboxdirect.com - UK

Hi,

Does anyone know if phoneboxdirect.com/co.uk (UK based mobile phones supplier) is reliable to buy from. They have some extraordinary deals which leads me to be slightly sceptical. I know places like, dialaphone, onestopphoneshop, e2save, and mobileshop are reliable, they've been around for years, and I have or know some one who has used them and got all their cash back. Can phoneboxdirect be trusted. Once my sister and dad got a phone from some next company (PCE something or other) and before the 6 month mark when they get their cash back that company went bust (apparently the owner profited 500,000 from the company).

Please help,

Thanks

Cool

You could try inverstigating by using the internet to look up the company credentials.

If your gut feeling is its too good to be true , then go with that and buy from a tried and tested company

Just checked out the website and it does look like they have some amazing deals! I think, personally, their deals do looka little too good to be true, depends if you like to take a risk or not, i suppose.

I'd definitely run a couple of searches on complaints for both of these companies. You might generate some worthy results.

The website is very slow loading for me, never a good sign!

I found some complaints now actually and do not trust them knowing what I've read so far.

Hi - new member here - I've just been looking at this website too and the old "this looks too good to be true........ " feeling came over me which probably means it is! Has anyone any more recent experiences?
