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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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

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.
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!
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.
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

We’ve all been
there – you’ve lost your iPhone charger and need to replace it. Visit Apple or
many of the high street stores and you’ll pay around £18-£20 for a new USB
power adapter – and that’s just for the plug! Visit Fonestore online and you’ll
pay just £4.99 for the same thing. Sure, it’s a pre-owned Apple USB Power
Adapter, but that’s a quarter of the price and it does exactly the same thing!
Lightning to USB Cable (1m)
Then there’s the
other part to the power adaptor – the cable. A 1-metre cable from Apple will
set you back another £18-£20, meaning that you’ll pay around £40 for both! At
Fonestore, we offer the same thing for just £9.99, which makes a grand total of
£14.98 for the adaptor and the lead. That’s over 65% per cent less.
If you want your
iPhone to stay protected, you’ll need a screen protector and when you take just
a quick look online, you’ll notice that it will set you back about £20,
depending on the brand you go for. We offer the same thing for just £4.99,
meaning you can protect your pre-owned iPhone’s screen and keep the difference

In terms of modern tablets, the iPad Air 2 is one of the most powerful and versatile you’ll find on the market. Available with up to 128 Gigabytes of internal storage, a fantastic LED-backlit retina display and an A8X chip with 64-bit architecture, it’s able to handle pretty much anything that modern games and apps can throw at it. It’s got a pretty nifty 8-megapixel camera on-board too with exposure control and Auto HDR for fantastically sharp images.
Believe it or not, this impressive bit of kit is available at a much lower price than you might expect, that is, if you’re able to accept the huge value that can be gained by considering pre-owned tech. At Fonestore, we’re known as the ‘Pre-owned Gadget Marketplace’ and we can offer you a pre-owned iPad Air 2 that’s every bit as fast, comes with a full 12-month warranty and that will cost you a fraction of what a new one would.
iPad Air 2 Benefits
Aside from the obvious benefits of functionality and processing power,
the pre-owned iPad Air 2 comes with all the same benefits as a new one, but
without the horrendously high cost. Each one of the pre-owned gadgets we sell
at Fonestore goes through rigorous testing to ensure that it’s working at the
very highest levels of performance.
We know we offer great value and we back this up with the warranty
that we mentioned a moment ago that lasts for a whole year. That means that if
your pre-owned iPad Air 2 develops any manufacturer issue within that time,
we’ll rectify the fault for free. When you buy any sort of gadget, be it new or
pre-owned, this is the kind of peace of mind you need, as you’re parting with
your hard-earned cash.
We want you to be completely comfortable with your pre-owned purchase,
which is why we always offer a 14-day cooling-off period. This is the time that
you can use to really put your new device through its paces and make sure that
you’re completely happy with it and that it suits your needs. We believe this
kind of buying right should come as standard with any purchase and so we offer
it to our customers too.
Have You Got to Lose?

and you’d like to find out more about how to get one, we recommend that you
take a good look around our website www.fonestore.co.uk and see all of
the goodies we have in store. We don’t only do pre-owned iPad Air 2’s either,

pre-owned Apple Watches – so there’s plenty to choose from.

Available in Rose
Gold, Space Gray, Gold and Silver, there certainly is a lot going on inside the
Apple iPad Pro. Complete with WiFi, stereo speakers, 12-megapixel camera,
Retina display and powerful M9 coprocessor, it’s able to cope with pretty much
everything modern tablet users need and that certainly reflects in the price
tag. This kind of kit doesn’t come cheap and buying a new one will typically
leave a rather large hole in your bank account.
So, you started reading this blog because you wanted to know how to get one for less and that way is to consider a pre-owned iPad Pro. Now, before you say “I don’t want a second-hand iPad Pro”, we’re here to tell you that anything you’ve heard about buying pre-owned is almost certainly wrong – well, it is when you buy from Fonestore anyway.
First of all, the
huge savings you make buying a pre-owned iPad Pro don’t come at the expense of
your buyer’s rights, as every device we sell comes with a full 1-year warranty.
That means that if any fault develops during that time – just like with a new
one – you’re covered and you’ll get it fixed without charge.
Cooling Off Period
We want you to be
completely happy with your pre-owned iPad Pro, which is why we offer a 2 week
period for you to get to know your new device and make sure you want to keep
it. If during that time you change your mind, you’re fully entitled to send it
back for a refund – absolutely no questions asked. This is a customer right you
don’t even get all the time when you buy new!
Tested & Ready to Go
In order for any pre-owned iPhone, pre-owned iPod or pre-owned iPad to get the Fonestore seal of approval, it has to go through rigorous testing to ensure that it’s working at optimum levels of performance. We’re completely transparent about the cosmetic condition of our pre-owned devices too, as we operate a rating system that ranges from Good to Pristine, so you know exactly what you’re getting before you buy it.
to Find Out More?
So, before you
completely discount the idea of opting for a pre-owned iPad Pro, consider the
fact that you’ll pay much less for your device and that pre-owned comes with
all the buying rights you get when you buy new. We wouldn’t offer all the
guarantees we do if we weren’t completely sure about the quality of the
products we sell and we stand by every single one.
If you’d like to
find out more about the benefits of buying pre-owned tech, you should take a
look around our website www.fonestore.co.uk where you’ll find details of all the pre-owned
iPads, iPods, iPhones and Apple watches we have in stock.

and you might just be surprised about what you find!
It can’t have escaped your notice exactly how amazing modern iPhones
are these days, with HDR cameras, 3-Core graphics cards and batteries that last
for hours and hours. Anyone who owns one will tell you that pretty much the
only thing they’re not overjoyed about is the amount of cash they had to part
with to get it.
At Fonestore, we are specialists in pre-owned iPhones which offers a much cheaper way to get your hands on the latest devices without having to tie yourself into an expensive monthly contract. We also offer pre-owned iPods, pre-owned iPads and pre-owned Apple watches, which is why we like to call ourselves the pre-owned gadgets marketplace.
the Benefits of Buying New
Ask the average person about how they would feel about buying a
pre-owned iPhone and they’re likely to say that they wouldn’t, as they’re
somehow getting a substandard service or product. This perception couldn’t be
further from the truth, as when you buy a pre-owned device from Fonestore, you
get everything you would if you were buying a new one.
First of all, you get a fully-tested device that’s covered by a 1-year
warranty, meaning that if any faults develop, you’re covered. Secondly, you get
a 2-week cooling-off period, as we want you to be entirely sure that you’re
happy with your pre-owned iPhone. If for any reason at all, you just can’t get
on with your new device, you can return it to us with 14 days for a full
refund. No quibbles, no stress, no bother.
The main benefit of buying a pre-owned iPhone from Fonestore is the
significant savings you’ll make when compared to buying one brand new.
Depending on the model of pre-owned iPhone you go for, you could literally save
hundreds and hundreds of pounds. Take a look through our full catalogue of
pre-owned Apple iPhones on our website and you’ll see exactly what we mean.
We’re completely transparent about the condition of the pre-owned
devices we sell too, as we operate a condition system that ranges from ‘Good’
to ‘Pristine’, so if there is any cosmetic damage to the device, you’ll know
all about it before you make any kind of commitment.
Taking a Look?
So, if you like the idea of getting yourself a pre-owned iPhone that
offers all the same functions and enjoyment as a new one, but at a fraction of
the price, head over to our website www.fonestore.co.uk, where you’ll
find everything you need to know, as well as our full list of amazingly-priced

What you find might just
blow your mind!
It’s easy to see why the iPhone XR is such a popular device, as it’s a fantastic looking smartphone that just packed with features. With a particularly impressive 6.1-inch Liquid Retina Display, available in a choice of stunning colours and water-resistant to a depth of 1 metre for up to 30 minutes, it’s true to say that there’s much to desire about this amazing piece of tech.
The only trouble
with buying this powerhouse of a smartphone is that it comes with a pretty
hefty price tag or a long and expensive contract. However, there is a third
option that comes without any long-term commitments and without the exorbitant
outlay. That option is a pre-owned iPhone XR.
the Specs – None of the Drawbacks
The great thing about opting for a pre-owned XR is that the huge saving you make on the list price of a new one doesn’t come at a cost to your enjoyment of the device or your consumer rights. That’s because, at Fonestore, every single one of our pre-owned smartphones comes with a full 12-month warranty. You get a warranty when you buy a new one – why shouldn’t you get the same protection with pre-owned?
Day Cooling-Off Period
Again, when you
buy a new smartphone, you usually (but not always) get a ‘cooling-off’ period
to ensure that you like the tech you’re investing in, so we think it’s a right
you should get when buying a pre-owned iPhone XR. When you buy any o our
pre-owned iPhones, pre-owned iPads, pre-owned iPods or pre-owned Apple watches,
you get 14 days during which to have a good play with your device and make sure
that it’s the right one for you.
If for any
reason, it’s not to your liking, simply return it to us within two weeks for a
full refund – no questions asked. It’s that kind of peace of mind that’s so
important when you’re parting with hundreds of pounds of your hard-earned cash.
Next Day Delivery
benefit that comes with getting your pre-owned iPhone XR from Fonestore is
free, secure, next day delivery. We use Royal Mail special delivery to get your
pre-owned device to you, meaning that it’s normally with you by 1 pm the very
next day. You’ll be trying out all your new A12 Bionic chip and the iPhone XR’s
many features before you know it!
