COVID-19 – Changes to Royal Mail parcel deliveries

To ensure that Fone Store and Royal Mail can continue to maintain our usual delivery service expectations by providing the best service possible, Royal Mail have made some changes to their operational policies and practices for parcels that cannot be posted through a letter box following public health advice as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

These changes will affect all orders sent on a Royal Mail 24, 48 and Special Delivery services.

Royal Mail’s postal workers are now practicing social distancing measures with immediate effect, therefore customers will no longer be required to sign for parcels. Instead of physically handing over parcels, postal workers will place parcels on customers’ doorsteps to retrieve at a safe distance and then successfully record the delivery attempt from their personal PDA scanners.

We will continue to work closely with Royal Mail and our other delivery partners to ensure the safety, health and well-being of our employees, members of the public and the communities within which we operate.

Further information on our delivery timescales can be found here.

A MESSAGE FROM FONE STORE

As a valued customer, we thought it important to let you know that during this unusual time we are very much open for business.

As we’re asked to scale down our interaction with others, we’ve implemented special operating measures in order to continue with our service as best we can and our staff have risen to the challenges presented to us as the situation develops.

Throughout this uncertain period, the level of service we’re able to provide is of course, subject to changes about which you’ll be fully updated as efficiently as possible.

We’d like to say a huge thank you to all of our customers. We appreciate your support and understanding during this difficult time.

Finally and most importantly, stay safe and look after each other.

Keep Your Monthly Mobile Costs Down with a Preowned iPhone from Fonestore

There’s no mistaking the fact that running a mobile contract is getting more expensive these days, with the latest smartphones coming attached to deals of £50+ per month. However, that doesn’t necessarily have to be the case with preowned iPhones available at Fonestore for significantly less than you’d pay for a new one.

Being able to take advantage of a preowned iPhone enables you to make use of the myriad of SIM-only contracts that are available at a significantly lower monthly price than those with phones attached them. Typically speaking, you’ll pay around ⅓ or ½ the amount when compared to a phone/sim deal with the same quantity of minutes, texts and data.

The Same Customer Rights

When you buy a preowned iPhone, you’ll pay a lot less than you would if you were to buy new, however, that doesn’t mean that you lose any of your consumer rights. Even new iPhones only come with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty and that’s exactly what you get with preowned iPhones from Fonestore. We offer a full 12-month parts and labour warranty, meaning that if it goes wrong, you’ll get it fixed, completely free of charge.

The Same Cooling Off Period

When you buy online, you don’t get the same ability to see the device you’re buying up close and personal. This means that you don’t truly know if whatever you’re purchasing is exactly what you’re looking for and it’s for this reason that we offer a 14-day cooling-off period on all of our preowned Apple products. We want you to be 100% happy with your device and this time allows you to make sure that you are.

Flexible Payment

We understand that even though our preowned iPhones are available at great prices, you might still want to spread the cost. That’s why we offer the ability to pay via PayPal Credit, which gives you the facility to pay gradually for your preowned iPhone. Of course, it’s subject to status and acceptance by PayPal, but it does offer a way to make buying your new iPhone that much more comfortable.

What Have You Got to Lose?

With a 14 day change-of-mind period, a 12-month warranty and the ability to pay at your own pace, you really have got nothing to lose from choosing Fonestore for your next smartphone. If you decide during the first 14 days that you’re not happy with your preowned iPhone, you can send it back for a full refund, no questions asked.

If you’d like to know more about the preowned tech we have available at Fonestore, please take a look around our website www.fonestore.co.uk. If however, you’d like any questions answering before you make your purchase, give us a call on 020 7097 1604 today and we’ll be able to explain everything you need to know. Thanks for reading. We’ll be back again soon with more advice and guidance from the world of cut-price Apple tech.

Fonestore – The #1 Place For Preowned iPads

In the modern home, there is perhaps no more helpful and well-used item than the tablet, as it offers an intuitive, easy-to-operate interface for shopping, gaming and a whole host of other daily leisure activities. Arguably, the most sought-after and high-performing brand of tablet is the iPad, however, they do come at quite a high price.

At Fonestore, we make this handiest of household gadgets accessible to more people by offering preowned iPads which come with all of the consumer rights and warranties that new ones do. So, whether you’re after a preowned iPad Air, a preowned iPad Mini 4 or a high-performing preowned iPad Pro 2nd generation, we can most certainly help.

Not Sure? Take Advantage of Our 2 Week Cooling Off Period!

If you’ve never bought a second-hand or preowned Apple product before, you’re probably a little bit wary about what you’re buying and we completely understand that. We want you to be entirely happy with your preowned iPad purchase, which is why we provide a 14-day cooling-off period, during which you can fully explore all of your new gadget’s features and functions.

We mean what we say too because if you’re not completely happy with your purchase and you want to return it within the two weeks, we’ll refund you with absolutely no quibbles. You certainly won’t be hit new company loopholes that prevent you from getting your money back!

Same Functions, Same Features, Lower Price!

When you buy a preowned iPad for yourself or your family, you get all of the top functions and amazing features that you’d expect from a new iPhone, without the hefty price tag. Every single preowned iPad Mini, preowned iPad Pro and preowned iPad Air 2 we sell has been fully refurbished and tested to specifications. This is then backed by a 12-month warranty, which is exactly the same peace of mind you get when purchasing a new one.

Come and See For Yourself

We could talk until we’re blue in the face about how great our preowned Apple devices are, but the only real way to see exactly what mean is to sample their quality for yourself. The purchasing process we have put in place has been created to provide you with every opportunity to see the quality of the products we sell whilst providing ample opportunity to return them if you’re not satisfied.

Purchases from Fonestore are tracked and are sent out completely free of charge, with returns also being paid for by us. If you’d like to know more about the services we offer and to see the huge range of preowned iPads, preowned iPods and preowned iPhones we have in store, head over to our website www.fonestore.co.uk.
