About Lovefone

Lovefone is probably best known for its Foneshop - a mobile repair outfit that you can mail your phone to, or pop into one of its shops around London - but it also buys and sells old iPhones too.

It buys a decent range of iPhone models, and is happy to purchase whether they're used, scratched, broken, or damaged. Its offers work on a tiered system - you can select the precise condition of your handset, and get as accurate a quote as possible.

As long as the phone can be mended, Lovefone is happy to buy it, often at quite competitive pricing. It won't, however, buy phones that have liquid damage or that won't power on.

All phones that Lovefone buy will be fixed, spruced up, and sold on as refurbished models.

It offers free postage through the Royal Mail to send them your phone - and if you change your mind for any reason, such as if you're not happy with a revised quote, Lovefone will return it for free as well.

Payment is available by either bank transfer or PayPal. It's sent out within one working day of them receiving your phone if you choose a bank transfer, or three working days if you choose PayPal.
