Common Fonehouse Customer Support Issues
Out of Stock Orders and the Wait List
The single biggest issue with Fonehouse is wait-listing orders promised next-day delivery. Fonehouse sells recent-model phones and mobile tech at low prices and hot-sale discounts. They receive relatively small batches of phones, in a style that suggests retail surplus, and advertise as if they have a steady, on-demand supply.
This means that customers who order a phone often find that their model is "out of stock" by the time the order processes to the inventory and shipping stage. They are then wait-listed, and the wait-list existed before their order was made, so it may be several restocks deep. This means a same-day phone might arrive a few days or a few weeks late and many customers cancel their orders before this time. Fonehouse does not have a conciliatory approach to complaints about the wait-list, resulting in a great deal of confusion and frustration.
Difficult Refund Process
The second most common Fonehouse customer support issue is the refund process. Fonehouse appears to require a direct connection to your bank instead of refunding the original method of payment, as is typical. Many customers have had difficulty receiving their refunds as a result. Other common Fonehouse complaints encompass the usual e-commerce issues regarding delivery accuracy.
