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.

Looking for Affordable Accessories for Your iPhone? Then Come and See What Fonestore Can Offer!

At Fonestore, we’re specialists in pre-owned Apple products, with a huge range of used iPods, iPads and pre-owned iPhones for sale. We help people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford these highly desirable bits of tech to own and enjoy them. You may or may not know all of this already, but did you know, we also stock a range of affordable Apple accessories?

Purchase your Apple accessories from any of the main suppliers and you’ll instantly notice just how expensive they are. At Fonestore, we have everything you need to get the very most of out of your pre-owned Apple device. Let’s take a look at just what we mean.

Pre-owned Apple USB Power Adapter

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!

Apple 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.

iPhone Screen Protector

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 yourself to spend on something different.

We completely understand what an expensive business it can be owning an iPhone and we do our bit to make it that bit more affordable for every one of our customers.

Why Spend More?

We’re proud that we enable our customers to access pre-owned iPhones, pre-owned iPods and pre-owned iPads at a fraction of their usual cost. We back this up with all the customer rights you get when buying new like a 12-month warranty and a 2-week cooling-off period, so we think you should get those same savings when buying your Apple accessories.

With Fonestore, that’s exactly what you do get.

So, why not take a look at our website www.fonestore.co.uk and see just how much you could save on our massive range of pre-owned Apple products. You might just be surprised about what you find there.

That’s for this time. We’ll be back next time with more from the wonderful world of cut-price Apple tech.

Fonestore – The Home of Affordable Pre Owned iPhones

So, we’ve come to the end of another year and as we start 2020, what better way to start a new decade than a shiny new iPhone? Now, anyone who’s tried to buy an iPhone recently will know that they cost a pretty penny and whether purchased as part of a contract or sim-free, they really can cost you a metaphorical arm and a leg.

The good news is that at Fonestore, we offer an affordable alternative that comes with all of the benefits of buying new and that alternative is preowned iPhones. Whether talking about a preowned iPhone X, a preowned iPhone 8 or even a preowned iPhone 6 Plus, we stock an impressive range of Apple tech that feels just as good in your hand as a new one does.

A Warranty for Peace of Mind

When you buy anything that’s second hand, the natural thing to do is wonder exactly how reliable and durable it will be. You’ll have no such worries with Fonestore, however, as all of our preowned iPhones come with a full 12-month warranty – which is exactly what new iPhones come with! That means that should anything go wrong with your preowned iPhone during this time, you get the same consumer rights as someone who’s paid through the nose for a new one.

Two Weeks to Think About It

Something that sometimes puts people off of buying anything online is wondering if you’ll actually like what you’ve bought when it arrives. Again, you’ll have no worries about buyer’s remorse with Fonestore, as we offer a 14-day change of mind period on all of our preowned iPhones so that you have plenty of time to decide if your purchase is right for you. We feel that it’s a grace period that everybody should have when buying from the internet.

Free, Next Day Delivery

Once you’ve identified the preowned iPhone that suits your needs from our website, you’ll not have to wait long to see it up close and personal. We send all of our preowned iPhones out by Royal Mail Special Delivery, meaning that you’ll have your preowned iPhone XS Max, preowned iPhone 8 or preowned iPhone 6S in your hands the very next day.

Why Not Try Us Out?

So, if you’re looking for a new iPhone for 2020, why not give the Fonestore buying experience a try?

Fonestore – The Online Marketplace Where the iPad Air 2 Costs Less Than You Think

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.

Pre-Owned 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.

Two-Week Cooling-Off Period

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.

What Have You Got to Lose?

If you’d like the power of a pre-owned iPad Air 2 at your fingertips 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, as we’ve also got a wide range pre-owned iPhones, pre-owned iPads and even pre-owned Apple Watches – so there’s plenty to choose from.

Want to Get an Apple iPad Pro For Less? Come and Find Out How!

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.

1 Year Warranty

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.

2-Week 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!

Fully 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.

Want 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. Have a good look around and you might just be surprised about what you find!

Paying Through the Nose for Your New iPhone? You Really Don’t Have To!

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.

All 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.

Huge Savings

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.

Fancy 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 devices.

If you need any more information about what’s involved in buying pre-owned that’s not on our site, you can give us a call on 020 3538 8950 now and a member of our expert team will be able to give you the low-down. Before you commit hundreds of pounds on a new iPhone, come and see what we’ve got to offer. What you find might just blow your mind!

Get Your iPhone XR the Savvy Way with Fonestore

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.

All 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?

14 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.

Free Next Day Delivery

Another buying 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!

Why Not Try Us Out?

With free delivery, a 14-day cooling-off period and a full 12-month warranty on all of our pre-owned devices, you really have nothing to lose from trying us out. You do, however, have an awful lot to gain, as you can literally save hundreds of pounds that you can spend on something else.

If you would like to find out more about why more and more people are turning to pre-owned smartphones over new ones, head over to our website www.fonestore.co.uk where you’ll find lots of useful information. Alternatively, if you have any questions about the products we offer, call us now on 020 3538 8950 and a member of our team will be more than happy to provide you with answers.
