Disadvantages: Some phones you have to use IMEI code rather then phones name
I did have a samsung galaxy s 2 which after only a few months broke on me. I tried sending it to be repaired with no such luck. Suddenly I was without a phone and no money to buy a new one!
Luckily my sister told me about Mazuma, she had used them and recommended them to me.
I found the site and was pleased to see it was easy to use by either typing in the name of your phone or the IMEI code inside your phone. The one slightly annoying thing was that I put in Samsung galaxy s 2 yet it couldn't find it, however once i put the code in it found it automatically so I cant moan to much!
Once you click on your phone, it asks you if the phone is working or not. I selected that it didn't and then it gives you a price they will pay. If you want cash for it then you get slightly less but if you have it in a voucher say for Argos then you'll get slightly more.
As I didn't want a voucher for a particular place I selected the cash option, you can then choose whether to have a cheque sent to you or which I didn't expect they would do a bank transfer to you. But not only this the bank transfer would be done on the same day they receive the phone! As I was desperate for a new phone and needed money quickly I selected the bank transfer. You then just need to put in your bank details confirm them and add a few personal details and then wait for the postage bag to be sent to you.
I expected to wait a while for it however I ordered it on a sunday and received it Tuesday morning! Nice and quick! Inside the information on how to send your phone is simple. Just stick it in the postage bag along with the delivery note they have sent you. You can either just send it like this and it's free postage. Or you can use the label inside to stick on the front and pay a delivery fee in order to get some insurance on your phone. However as my phone was broke I decided to just go for the free option! And so I posted it Tuesday night.
They keep you informed all along the process from ordering the bag to them receiving your phone and finally paying you your money! I received mine Friday two days after I had sent my phone to them.
All in all a great experience!
Summary: Brilliant experience
