Has anyone used Mobileboo?
« on: June 14, 2011, 09:15:59 pm »
Has anyone used Mobileboo?  I'd really like to get a smartphone, but not if I have to pay full price for it.  I've emailed Mobileboo for more information, but I can't find any reviews of the company online.  It'd be nice to get some third-party opinions.

Has anyone used Mobileboo, or know anyone who used them?  How was the experience?

Glad I found this. I've been searching like crazy for more info about them. The website doesn't seem like the most legit thing, and I'm only assuming they're a real business because there was a Korean Herald article on them.

I had a friend you got a mobile with them. Good service and the price seems to be okay too!

I got an iPhone 4 through them a couple months ago. No problems yet, although it did take them about three weeks to ship it to me despite their promises of having it to me in a few days. Really annoying, but I think they are a fairly small operation and received a lot of orders and just got backed up...

Everything else was great. Everyone I talked to via phone or email spoke fluent English, and everything was pretty straightforward as far as the contract goes.

I would definitely recommend them!

KT allows you to order directly from them in English off their website. Can't see any reason to go through another party for this..

Could anyone give me any information on how long it takes to receive confirmation after you place an order and upload your files etc? I placed an order last week and still have heard nothing back. I tried again and the same thing happened so I now dunno if my orders aren't going through or if I've accidentally ordered 3 phones?  :-[ all help very much appreciated.

I just found this on their site.. use Google Chrome then u can translate... think it's the tracking service for orders.  http://biz.epost.go.kr/KpostPortal/openapi/trace_search_regino.jsp

I tried emailing and got no response and nobody is answering the phone either. Something isn't right here.

Did you give them any money? if not, just go to KT.

Can't imagine someone would leave the "horrible" service of KT for that..

No, I haven't given them any money, thankfully. Can I order online with KT? I've tried looking for a site to order from but can't find any, I may ust be useless though  :laugh:

I just received an email from them -- the guy quit last week so they are running around trying to help everyone.  The guy who mailed me was a Korean. English not GREAT but understandable - they're really trying :)  I'm guessing they are trying to get through all the mails and messages now.

Me too! I'm feeling great relief now. Fingers crossed I can get my new phone asap. I'm not the most patient person in the world  :laugh:

I got the iPhone 4S through them a few weeks ago, and the process couldn't have been easier. Like a lot of others I thought the site was a little sketchy, so I first tried through KT. Ordered a phone online which was pretty easy, but then the store I was supposed to pick up the phone from refused to actually give me the phone because I'm not Korean (also not in Seoul). Calling KT didn't help either. The representative I spoke was really unhelpful, so I gave in and tried Mobileboo. Didn't think I'd get a phone for a couple of weeks, but it came...3 days later. Incredible. Haven't gotten my first bill yet, but I'm happy thus far!

Anyone else have any other experience with this company?  I am currently planning to use them starting in January but I am a bit apprehensive.

Once they sorted out the problems with the guy quitting I got my shipping confirmation on a Tuesday and the phone arrived the next day. no problems so far, although I guess I'll hold off judgement until I receive my first bill. Really pleased with shipping etc though.
