Tried to switch back to EE given the very limited network cover but they kept taking the PAC code back. Then switched me to pay as you go when I tried to withdraw from my monthly contract. diabolical company, they should be referred to the office for fair trading

Network has been down all week. No communication from ID mobile on the situation. I spoke to ID mobile on live chat 4 times in a 7 day period. Each time the same answer - congestion on the network. I requested to cancel my contract as I need a phone to make calls for work. They then said I need to pay £112 to leave. I am currently paying for a contract that has no calls, no data or text messages. They don’t know when it will be fixed and we are nearly on week 2. I also cannot change provider as I will need to pay £112. Currently going through trading standards as ID mobile have refused to resolve this and have been very poor overall with customer service - good luck if you have any issues with their network

Placed an order for a new phone with everything going through and initial payment taken from bank. No e-mail communication or text for 2 weeks. Had to chase online 3 separate times. Kept asking for ID information which I didn’t have as I had no e-mail communication, only to be told the order never went through, 16 days after it was placed. Couldn’t complain as you need an ID account which I apparently didn’t have. Stupid systems and a huge waste of time.

The worst mobile phone company to deal with. Number did not switch over by the time it did I was past the 14 day cooling off period. Constantly bad signal and txts calls don't come through. Customer service is horrendous. They send replacement Sims but then you cannot even get through to the page to activate them . I bitterly regret changing contract to them

The network coverage is rubbish in my area I cancelled the contract in the 30 day cooling off period. This means that ID Mobile cancel your sim instantly and then you have to wait to get your sim made pay as you go. So as it stands I am now without a phone still after 2 days and no idea when this change will be made, it could be iuntil my number ports to my new network. Terrible customer servcie so beware, do not use if you are a business user

Complaints not answered and addressed for months, bought an unlimited internet sim for my Sim router (was with three 'broadband'), ID mobile tell me after the contract starts the sim is not meant for that and they wont support that. Calls to the customer service complaints team (0800 049 1300 - they gave it to me following a complaint / reply it takes 50 mins+ to get through to someone on their phoneline). I regret taking out this contract, Customer service and complaints team response is poor and inadequate; Their customer service is nonexistent they have an automated online chatbot who will eventually put your through to a online person. There was a lot of confusion, agent said they would raise this and get back to me within 24 hours, i had the start all over again on the chatbot which was eventually raised higher. As i said i use this for internet connection, the signal keeps going down and the speeds are extremely slow and inconstant (compared to Three on the same router previously in the same location). I believed that ID mobile use the same networks as 'Three' however ID mobile were at pains to tell me that they are not the same etc.

AVOID THIS NETWORK Ive just finished my 2-year-prison sentence with ID-mobile (contract) this was the biggest mistake I've ever made, service provided was very hit and miss. At the end of my contract period with ID-mobile they made it is extremely difficult to notify them that you don't wish to upgrade or remain with them, After eventually navigating through the site I managed to notify them I no longer wish to do business with them, this wasn't at all easy and I was extremely disappointed to find a debt collection letter through my letterbox stating that I owe £12,00 and to pay Immediately! This was completely unnecessary, a gentle reminder of the final amount would have been fine, and maybe some gratitude for the 2 years of business with absolutely no missed or late payments! Never again, at least not with the experience I've had with ID mobile, AVOID AT ALL COSTS

Set up Phone and sim contract with them yesterday, after having issues checking out I had to switch over to the pc to complete. In doing so I accidently checked out the 250gb data package instead of unlimited. My mistake. However upon contacting there customer service (all online chat only!) I was advised the only way to correct was to return the phone (perfectly fine but opened, SIM installed and phone set up) and cancel and reorder (the exact same phone) with the changed contract. Completely illogical, irresponsible and long winded way to fix it, why could this simply not be amended? Spoke to a manger via the chat also and was told the same thing. Clearly do not care about the customer nor the environment, a phone will now be classed as a return and lose resale value, and two additional transports will be made to fix what could be a simple issue.

Extremely poor provider. Poor signal. Could not keep my old number. The pac code would not work. I tried several times to sort this. No customer service available. Tried to cancel my contract but because the problem with the pac went on so long I could not leave without paying off all of the 24 month contract. I've now had to get another contract with my old provider. Don't even think about switching to these jokers. The phone hasn't worked properly since it arrived. No charger came with it either. I think it was possibly second hand.

I have been so shafted by ID Mobile and their incompetency that I've suffered significant loss to my business, due to huge errors on their part, which resulted in 1) them sending me a faulty (not brand new) phone (complete con that they are non-refurbished/second hand) 2) upon returning it for a new handset they out of the blue sent me a 'sorry to see you go' text and cut me off my contract 3) defaulting to a PAYG sim - I couldn't make calls or even 'top up!'(?!). 4) I went through the complaints procedure for over two months via their 'second tier' complaints, who were nice to talk to, but couldn't resolve anything - It was more of moral support line than anything else; just plain weird actually. 5) Also, their socialqueries@idmobile email address that they direct you to, did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to assist, only referred me to the second tier again. We must have had in excess of twenty chats and a random unhelpful letter in the post. 6) ID Mobile admitted ALL of these errors, yet could not rectify it unless (get this), I crossed over to a different network and then crossed back to ID Mobile(!), otherwise I would lose my mobile number, which has been my business line for twenty years - Basically, they expected me to do a triangular port and all the leg work. What a mess of an organisation. I'm done with ID Mobile for life and am spreading the word. - And the response on TrustPilot was absurd and banging on about ant offering business contracts (face palm) ... (prime example of no idea)... Tyler, business plans?! It WAS a personal contract?! Are you suggesting it is okay to provide such terrible, embarrassing, appalling service that it effects customer lives and livelihoods? NO. ID Mobile is a walking mistake and you have just reiterated this - How very embarrassing!? Oh and you've just prompted me to spread the word further about your utter incompetency. Laughable.

Their customer service is nonexistent. If you have any issues with your account or billing you are out of luck. My plan was increased (not CPI) and the person/a.i behind the chatbot was rude, incompetent, and unable to provide any answers. I have no recourse for fixing this and there's no other way to contact this ridiculous company. Do not give them your money, the extra monthly cost of going with an established company will be worth it.

I live in Australia and I noticed iD have been helping themselves to money in my bank. I have no account with iD. As it is so difficult to get in touch with iD I have cancelled the fraudulent direct Debit to stop more money being lost. They responded with a do not respond email saying that they will screw up my credit rating. Australian police cannot investigate as the crime is outside their jurisdiction. iD will do nothing, they are unhelpful and as they are so difficult to get hold of I could not recommend anyone doing business with them. if they treat their customers as bad as I have experienced then just how badly do they treat their staff. Sorry id staff. (yes punctuation nt correctly used but maybe id will be able to read it better).

Purchased IPhone 14 Pro that after 4 days Apple Store diagnosed with a faulty camera. ID told me to take to local Currys store, who then said they couldn’t help. ID then told me to post it back to them, at my expense, and wait for it to be checked. While still being billed £60 a month. Horrible customer service. Avoid

Worst company ever. They forgot to send my final bill for the two mobile phones. I was applying for a mortgage, to find out that because of their incompetence, my credit score went down. According to the credit score app I have missed payments for two contracts £9 each. Totally furious.

Conned into a more expensive deal. Rubbish costumer service system. Lying about getting back in touch. No accountability. Disappointing outcome from complaint. I've been with ID mobile for a number of years and have had no issues until now and feel so let down by their company and their costumer service. I was emailed a number of times with suggestions of upgrading my contract. There emails suggested a Samsung a34 and offered a free gift of new Samsung buds2. Then on their website this free gift was linked to a deal with a 25gb data allowance and unlimited calls and texts. I checked the details regarding the free gift and their statement read the free gift was with any Samsung a34 between certain dates OR with selected unlimited data tariffs while stocks lasted. I have the deal from their website quoted at the end of this review. This offer of a free gift sold the deal to me and I agreed to upgrade. The gift never arrived. unfortunately you cannot speak to a person at ID at all. You must go through a rubbish automated online chatbot who will eventually put your through to a online person. There was a lot of confusion about the deal. Someone said they would raise this concern and get back to me within 24 hours. No one did. On making recontact I was told it was only available on unlimited data tariffs despite their statement on the website. I then escalated this to their complaints team and was told I would get a phone call within 3 days. After 4 days I had no word, so again had to go through their online chatbot and was eventually told that it wasn't part of the deal and that it. They did eventually offer me a £20 compensation however this does not even slightly cover the more expensive 24 month contract I was conned into agreeing to. I was conned into a more expensive deal, their costumer service system is just rubbish at the start, I was promised people would get back in touch but I always had to chase them and a really disappointing outcome. No ownership from them making this error. Now I'm stuck with them for another 24 months. "Purchase a Samsung Galaxy A34, Samsung Galaxy A54, Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, Samsung Galaxy S22 128GB, Samsung Galaxy S23, Samsung Galaxy S23 Plus, or Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra between 09/08/23 - 27/09/23 or whilst stocks last on selected Unlimited data tariffs and receive a pair of Samsung Buds2 (Black colour) worth £139.99, at idmobile.co.uk only."

Stay away. Increases contract prices. Support is non existent. Online chat takes 10 minutes per reply. They lied to me that they'd reactivate my contract only after 1 hour of waiting they said they couldn't and ended the conversation. My phone has been cut off instantly with a missed payment when I'm disabled and mentally unwell and need to make urgent calls
