What should you know about Mobile Phones Direct?
Formed in 1992 before the late-'90s mobile-phone boom, Mobile Phones Direct has won multiple awards from What Mobile? for Best Online Retailer.

What are the benefits of using Mobile Phones Direct?
Like other retailers, Mobile Phones Direct attempts to undercut networks, with cash-back deals and lower-priced contracts. So they're always worth a look if you're trying to save money.
Mobile Phones Direct is also highly rated as retailers go, so you can buy with confidence, and allows you to trade-in your existing phone towards the one you're looking to purchase.
What are the negatives of using Mobile Phones Direct?
Mobile Phones Direct doesn't have any high-street stores, so there's no-one to speak to face-to-face if you want some advice or want to try out a phone before committing to a purchase.
You're also unlikely to get the same sort of upgrade perks that networks can offer to existing customers.
This is because networks usually don't allow the likes of Mobile Phones Direct access to these deals.
