    Is fonebank legit?

    Hello, looking to sell my phone - Nokia 5800 and fonebank is giving the best price.

    HOWEVER,

    I have never used or heard anyone talk about this place before.

    Is it all legit and will i receive my cheque?

    Thanks for that. I best get a move on with selling it then before it totally vanishes in price!

    Can't vouch for them personally, but I was going to use them as I've seen enough good reviews and you can get £3 through quidco too.

    Used them for many years great company

    yeah daughter wants rid of hers, but not sure on sending it off, as dont really know what sort of condition they accept them in

    Hiya, used them back in August as they were offering me the most money. Placed order on the 5th August, posted phones 7th August, they confirmed they received them on the10th August and cheque was received a couple of days later. All hasle free. Dont know if anyone else has got any experience but I had no problems whatsoever. Hope this helps

    I used them last week. sent my 5800 away via special del on the friday they confirmed receipt and the price on the monday and I had the cheque in my hands on the weds. can't fault the service.
    There's a thread over on money saving expert which is pretty much filled with good reviews.

    How much did you get as I am selling mine. I'm sure last time I checked it was £85, now it's £84. I feel that I best get a ruddy move on.

    Thanks for all your comments guys.

    £85, a couple of months ago they were only offering £75 so it does change all the time. here's that thread,

    it was ok, there was one tiny scratch on the screen and a couple of scuffs etc on the back but nothing major. you can pick up the pens on fleabay for pennies if you want to be 100% but I wouldn't worry to much as it does say you don't have to send any accesories.

    Hey don't worry about it. It's open to anyone who needs a bit of asvice. I just need my student loan to come through so I can buy my beloved Nokia E72!!

    Nice one, posting mine tomorrow (replaced with the Orange San Francisco currently scorching in deals)

    Used them twice in the past by the way without any problems.

    Out of interest, how does everyone post their phones, special delivery or freepost? and if the latter, do you take it in to the post office to get proof of delivery? value is £85 so think I'd need to use special delivery.
