Mobiles.co.uk Review



This was the first retail mobile phone websites in the UK, watched way back in 1995 and no the largest online mobile phone sites in the UK. Part of the Carphone warehouse group since August 2007 Mobiles.co.uk are in a good position to deliver the best deals on mobile phones.

Mobiles.co.uk offer a free and fast next day delivery, want to place your order online they will dispatch orders placed up to 5 PM for next day delivery, so you get your mobile phone faster. However, this free delivery only extends to monthly contract phones, pay-as-you-go phones are subject to a £3.99 charge for the same next day delivery service.

The Mobiles.co.uk websites is clearly targeted at a younger audience using modern and vibrant colours and funky looks. Despite the colour’s, the site is easy to navigate and in most cases you can quickly find the information you require on a broad range of mobile phone specifications and data.

Broadly speaking, the site is broken down into the following sections. Latest offer’s, top Seller’s, mobile phone by manufacturer, mobile phones by network, mobile phones by type gifts, USB modems, accessories, mobile phone upgrades, and pay-as-you-go phones.

Once you start drilling down into the mobile phones pages when you have found the handset you’re interested in, you are presented with a phone summary page with options to view best deals on that phone, larger images, list the full specification, brief description, read customer reviews and checkout the rating from Mobiles.co.uk themselves. However there are no full-length mobile phone reviews from the Mobiles.co.uk team, just the reviews supplied by customers which can range from no reviews at all, to just a few words or in some cases one or two paragraphs.

Like other online mobile phone companies, Mobiles.co.uk offer a huge range of free gifts along with their pay monthly phone contracts. Typical gifts include electronic items such as Nintendo Wii, Sony PSP, laptops and net books, Xbox 360 and free Sony DAB radio. In general the more expensive the handset, and the more included monthly minutes you purchase on your calling plan, the better the free gifts!
