Re Mobile Phones Direct.
I read a post asking about their service and reputation? Well, I can only go by my experience which is extremely poor. They cannot deliver to anywhere outside of billing address for credit card meaning the wonderful Royal Mail depot take 48 hours for it to be received from the postie, approx half a mile from my house (without a phone for 2 days). N900 faulty and powering off randomly so I asked for a replacement, Mobile Phones Direct dont use a courier service so you need to send it back and wait for them to return a new one, once yours has been received. Guess what, same issue with Royal Mail again and due to the weekend, I could be without a phone for 4 or 5 days...Not good enough when I use it for work.
The attitude and quality of the service when you call is particularly poor and I for one, cannot recommend them. It seems you get what you pay for and I will be glad to pay for the handset to avoid this again.
I realise I should read smallprint about returns before I purchase but I do expect a bit of empathy and for the supplier to offer a good service when the product you are paying for is faulty...I dont believe they are set up for an online service and are perhaps stronger when visiting the store. Note that I believe they only have 1 phone and you will need to try many many times to get through to their untrained and uncaring eployees.
Anyone has the problem with your telco connection? I noticed mine goes up to 2G only!!
How do your sync your contact from the pc? It does not allow my Nokia Suite to do so.
Any help is much appreciated.
