In addition to edi's find and posting there are more handsets available with 12 months free line rental over at http://www.mobiles2yourdoor.co.uk/12months.asp

Can anyone please give their feedback on Mobiles2YourDoor?

I am just a bit hesitant about: Once you enter the eligibility period, we have an automated process in place to ensure you receive a redemption certificate in the post. - They could easily make it difficult for customers to get their redemption stuff? Most other deals bundle it with the initial package.

A good thing is they allow upto 60 days to claim back your cashback at each of the four stages!

Thanks,

but the bad thing:

''Please not that where multiple redemptions are required, any failure to make one redemption invalidates all future redemptions.''

Hey valentins I read that aswell. The deal being offered is excellent but any bad organisation on the customer's part in terms of sending things in on time or the redemption forms not being sent out on time could cause a lot of problems!

I am looking to take out the deal but wanted some feedback from customers who may have dealt with Mobiles2YourDoor previously.

Thanks in advance,

No-one will be able to tell you anything about cashback as the company has only just been formed so no-one will have any cashback yet. They are owned by the 4u group so should all be reliable. The phones I received are all in great condition and the rest of the stuff looks very professional, basically the same stuff as phones4u but in green!
#9
I am very tempted with this deal. Especially as the company is connected to Phones4u in some way, so it looks more trustworthy than some companies. Also its good to join them if they have just launched, they are less likely to go bnkrupt during your contract.

I say this as I was going to join a contract like this from mobilephonesontheweb.com - some people gave good reviews, and it had been going for a year or two I think. But I didnt go for it in the end, it seemed too dodgy. I have checked back about 3 months later, they have shut up shop, ran out of money and people are left with paying off the contract.

If the company does go bust, sometimes the network operator will be sympathetic with the situation - I have heard people with cut rate contract, and being given the phone and contract ended early.

Remember, there is no such think as a free lunch (well except in some cases thanks to HUKD :D). Its a risk you have to decide if you want to take - think about it a free phone, free contract and £45 quidco is almost too good to be true - some people are lucky, others arent. If you are already on a £35 p/m or so contract already then there is less risk for you, as you would be paying near what the offer is asking anyway. I only spend about £15 a month so I aint risking it.
#10
Been doing these for years - as long as you stick to reputable companies and follow the conditions to the letter you'll almost certainly be fine. I must have done 15 of these over the last 5 years, changing phones all the time, and never missed a payment.

Have already had 1 cashback from them. The most painless cashback to date (tried e2save and The Link previously).
#12
OK, tempted me. Voted hot -)

With 3G, a nice big screen and a good browser, this should be a pretty usable internet device. Not like a PocketPC of course, but for irregular use pretty practical. Also stuff like the googlemaps app is available on S60, and quite a lot of other free stuff.
#13
Good deal but the terms are a bit tricky. You can't claim until you get the redemption certificate, you get the first one after 6 months and then subsequently one certificate with each cash back claim made.... All aimed to confuse the average punter IMHO. Should be OK if you are ruthlessly organised. Fortunately I am!!
#14
Has sat nav you say. This sounds pretty good. Might wait till my bank finally changes my home address though coz that's bound to cause confusion.
#15
Don't think the N73 has any GPS technology inside as far as I know...

On the cashback front, it states...

Send your 6th, 8th, 10th and 12th monthly bills within 60 days of the date stated on the relevant airtime bill, to us and we will credit you by cheque with 25% of the total amount at each redemption period*

This will save you the stated amount over the 12 month duration of the contract.

*Approximately 25%, the combined total of all Four Cheques will be equal to the stated amount.


Doesn't mention anything about having to wait for a redemption certificate or anything?
#16
You need to buy a seperate adapter thing to use the satnav I think.

Apologies, it does state this in the Help section. Well I've ordered one so will see what I get in the post and give them a call to check on the redemption - with OneStopPhoneShop and others you usually just send the bill off maybe with a copy of the receipt and I haven't had any problems before.

Thanks to EDI who spotted this offer, great find! ;-)
#18
I've just returned my phone from M2YD as they had changed the cash back T&C's after I had placed my order. Why they can't send the redemption form with the order (this was in the original T&C's when I placed the order). I just see the change in the T&C's yet another way of making it more difficult to make a successful first claim. I wasn't willing to take the risk, there isn't enough feedback about M2YD.
#19
Part of the new T&C's on the website:

All Cheque Back offers will be processed after the handset has been delivered and connected. If you exchange the handset for a different model of handset after connection to the relevant tariff, you shall no longer be entitled to the Cheque Back offer. Within 30 days of your first redemption period, a claim form will be sent to your address. This claim form will need to be completed and returned via post each time a redemption is to be made. The claim form must be received by us at the address specified for us in the claim form no later than 60 days after the valid claim date as specified in the claim form and must be accompanied by the duly completed paperwork as specified in the 'how to claim' section of the claim form. The claim form and paperwork must be legible in order to be eligible. The original claim form that we sent you must be used and no other form or letter will be acceptable in its place. If you have lost a claim form, please contact the Customer Services Team on 08709014711 to request a replacement claim form. We cannot accept any liability for applications lost or delayed in the post. Proof of posting will not be accepted by us as proof of delivery. If you are in any doubt as to the terms of the Cheque Back offer, you should contact the Customer Services Team on 08709014711. The bill(s) accompanying your claim form must show that you have, at all times since the date of connection pursuant to the promotional offer, been on the same or higher value tariff as at the date of redemption. Upon receipt of a claim form for a Cheque Back offer, we will verify such application for eligibility and may at our sole discretion refuse an application. When your Cheque Back claim is processed, you will, if you are entitled to further redemptions, be sent a new claim form to enable you to make the next redemption. Please not that where multiple redemptions are required, any failure to make one redemption invalidates all future redemptions.

I do want to take this offer but am really curious about the site.

Below is information about Mobile2YourDoor and Phones4U that I extratced from Alexa:

Mobile2YourDoor:

Company Info for mobiles2yourdoor.co.uk:

4U Ltd
Unit 12 Crewe Hill Enterprise Park, Crewe
Uk CW1 6BU,
UNITED KINGDOM


Site Stats for mobiles2yourdoor.co.uk:

Company Info for phones4u.co.uk:

Phones 4U Ltd
Phones 4U Ltd, Swift House, Liverpool Rd, Newcastle-Under-Lyme
Staffs ST5 9JJ,
UNITED KINGDOM


Site Stats for phones4u.co.uk:
• Phones4u.co.uk has a traffic rank of:*24,950 * (6,413)
• Speed:* Average (59% of sites are slower), Avg Load Time: 2.0 Seconds *
• Other sites that link to this site:*140
• Online Since:*30-May-1997

=====

It's easy to spot that the headquarter of mobile2yourdoor is different from that of phones4u. Don't know if this is an evident to the saying that the former is a division (or whatever) of the later.

====

If the page Why Buy From Us (http://www.mobiles2yourdoor.co.uk/WhyBuyFromUs.asp), the company says that it has 11 years of business which refer to phones4u (I guess) because M2YD has been online for 4 years only. But may be more important, they CANNOT say anything why one should buy from them.

====
Alexa also points out that web traffic to M2YD was very poor some months ago, just being improved recently (may be because of offers like the one we're looking at??). It can be observed that web traffic was normal in 2 period in 2004 and 2005. Looks like they want to increase it now after some time???

=================
Conclusion: I'd definitely take this offer if there's something to ensure that I'm dealing with a reputable company. But what I can retrieve does not tell me that. Then I'll wait until I have more information.

A really deal though, if it's true.
#21
cashbacks are largely a scam, cold.
#22
fantastic deal but seems a bit too good to be true IMO. What's in it for the company selling you the phone, I just don't get it?? Can someone explain this perhaps?

After reading many reviews phone seems to be very prone to crashing.

#23
I've been tempted by a few deals at MTYD, but have been put off by their cashback T+C, even though they are part of Phones4U.

I think I'm gonna stick with E2Save/OneStop for my next contract (which I've done for my last two) and in a years time, dependant on their feedback may go with them.
#24
BlackAle

I don't feel scammed - the last five years I've not paid for a single contract, saving me over 2 grand on something I would have bought anyway. Then there's all the phones, which I've sold for 50-100 a pop on ebay when I get bored of them.
#25

All the cashback companies adopt fairly strict conditions - eg with this if you miss one cashback, you miss them all. A lot of people lose the cashback vouchers, claim in the wrong month, forget to claim, send in the wrong bill etc etc. If enough do this (and I'm told it's way more than half do), then even a perfectly honest company can break even.

On top of that, not everybody switches every year like they should. Many continue on the full price contract after the 12 months, which is why the networks give us all free phones in the first place.

Right for those of you that are NOT in the know about 4U phones limited... here goes.

4U Phones was started by John Caudwell (i remember it well the first 4u phones that went out the door when i worked there) who owned the Caudwell communcations group. About 3 years ago John sold his company and went off to do other things, 4U Phones was sold off along with other parts of the company that did more then just sell phones, John had his finger in a lot of pies at the time.

The address you have for Newcastle is 4U Phones HQ, been there for 8 or so years now once 4U phones started to grow while it was being run by John Caudwell whos main HQ for Caudwell Commucation was in Stoke before the big move. Due to lack of building space Caudwell Commucations moved from out of Stoke to Crewe taking over one warehouse and adding a second.

Also just down the road at Crewe Hall Enterprise center used to house Caudwell Comm landline business and boardband (this never took off to problems) this has now come the HQ for moblies to your door.

So you wont have to worry about the company going bust, but I very carefully what you getting yourself into time and time again we hear of the cashbacks going wrong or too complex for customers to understand from different companys that offer them.
#27
Just out of intrest i looked a moblie phones to your door... T and C

"Mobiles2YourDoor is a trading division of Phones 4u Ltd - Phones 4u House, Ore Close, Lymedale Business Park, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, ST5 9QD"

This be the another of the offices they have once again its been there a while as go past it myself
#28
I'm coming to the end of my 3rd Cashback deal (all with Carphonewarehouse companies) and have always been paid.

The part of the terms for this offer that concerns me most is:

"When your Cheque Back claim is processed, you will, if you are entitled to further redemptions, be sent a new claim form to enable you to make the next redemption."

I don't like the idea of relying on them to send out a new form for each Cashback claim.

cashbacks are largely a scam, cold.


That claim is a bit hard and unsubstantiated.

Cashbacks are designed to entice customers into taking out a contract by being able to advertise a low cost per month to the user. The only way to get that rate per month is to only use the inclusive minutes/texts included and follow the instructions for claiming cashback. The companies rely on a good percentage of people being lazy or not following the instructions. They are not intended for people like me who follow the instructions to the letter and end the contract at the end of the minimum term and swap to another cashback deal.

I have been doing cashbacks for over 5 years with Scancom, E2Save and TheLink paying at most £5 per month after cashbacks. I'd hardly call that being scammed!
#30
BlackAle
cashbacks are largely a scam, cold.


Think you are in a different planet :roll:

Its true that few retailers have had problems honouring cashback deals due to their poor business model and running out of cash when more than 80% claim. Its better to stick with sites such CPW (& its sister ones), Phones4U, Link etc.
#31
Quick piece of info, I have jus got this phone on o2 for £15.00 per month and have added data bolt on for £7.50, this gives me loads of data to use the phone for the internet, checking emails etc, orange are the worst of all the companies for data bundles, so far behind everyone else!

Welcometo hukd also!

I would argue that o2 are probably one of the worst. Can you get 3g on o2? I would say that T-mobile and 3g are right up there at the top. Orange are good for payg internet, not sure about contract.
#34
Pretty sure o2 have 3g, i hope they do! I was very tempted by 3, I agree their silver & gold package at £5 & £10 is great value. The n73 on silver though was £29 a month, I got o2 down to £22.50 so I renewed with o2. I think Orange still charge £8 for 30mb and capped at £1.50 per day. thats not very good. maybe wrong.

Orange £1 a day if you register for it first I think.

You're right about 3g and o2, I think their prices must have come down alot recently as they were always quite expensive.
#36
so what are we agreeing

is this deal a reliable deal to get or not???
#37
so...

from what i understand:
fail to claim back one cashback and you won't be able to claim any other cashbacks... bit harsh but i know theres another company out there that has the same T&C

you don't actually get your redemption form when you get the phone, they send it to within 30 days of the claim date, meaning at worst you'd only have 30 days to claim (since its a 60 day allowance?)
this could also mean that the forms are lost in the post and you won't have much time to sort it out.


is that correct?
#38
mushyg99
so what are we agreeing

is this deal a reliable deal to get or not???


You'll have to make your own judgement based on what you've read here and possibly elsewhere I'm afriad. It's not clear cut.

For what it's worth I went for it though, and I'm a fairly risk-averse person (I've done 2 years of successful cashback claims in the past though).
#39
thanks i am very very tempted - but i remember the phones4u 6300 debacle - i know Benjimoron will say 'here he goes again'
but i cant be asked with the hassle unless i know that it is genuine and reliable

Nokia N73 Black - Clearance Dolphin £35 - 12 month is currently out of stock. The product/s have not been added.
