Terrible Comms and customer service and they have no idea about their stock levels
Purchase was made on the 28 March 2021
The phone I ordered was out of stock, and at no point did they contact me when things went wrong with the order. They blamed the Easter break initially, then they finally realised there was no phone.
They couldn't sort out a new phone or another one that I wanted, so I asked for a refund, but 2 days later still nothing from PayPal.
Every time I call it's the same person that answers, but only the manager has any authority to do anything, he leaves "notes" for his manager, but nothing ever happens. I was ...told that my refund had been actioned two days ago, but nothing is showing on PayPal (But another refund from a different vendor, processed yesterday showed up that day). I was told to contact the manager next week if the refund hadn't been processed - I'm thinking I'm being lied to, just to get me off the phone, and buy some more time. I would NOT recommend buying from this vendor online, only in-store (if you really have to), as it seems online orders are not dealt with the same priority as walk-ins, regardless of how many days you have to wait. UPDATE 19/04/21: I've been chasing up my refund, and I keep being told it has been done, but my order details on their site still shows as being at the Warehouse, and my PayPal account doesn't show any refund pending.
Terrible customer service AND warranty claim
My phone, a Redmi Note 9 pro, needed a warranty claim because of a hardware problem with the finger print sensor - which didn't work. Their warranty claim is almost non existent when you consider that they sit on your product for 3 weeks doing nothing on their desk after they have received it, and after inquiring about my phone they decide it's then they need to order parts for it. What a joke. When I ask for a new phone instead, their excuse is the technician tried to ring me twice. Yes I didn't answer but I rang back and told them to ...do a factory reset and since then heard nothing from them. Still waiting on my phone to come back to me, it will be 4 weeks without it this coming week. If I don't get it before the 30 days as promised on their website I will insist on a new phone or else turn to consumer affairs. Here's hoping I get my phone back next week in a fully working but pristine physical condition which I had sent it in!
Very bad customer service
No communication. Purchased camera lenses for a terrific price. The lenses were not available and mymobile never told me. Last I heard my lenses were being shipped, no they weren't. Some communication would have saved a lot of headache. I found out through my bank.

Most dishonest shop and cheat people of their money!!!
Dissatisfied! It's a shop that cheat others money! Don't patronise unless you wanted to be cheated! Not only did you tarnish your shop image... You completely destroyed the Australian reputation!
Polite shop assistants but repairs not great
I have been in on 2 different occasions to get repairs done on a broken iPhone screen and later to get a repaired iPad screen. The first time I got my phone back I assumed it was damaged and that's why the touch screen and home key only worked occasionally, until I took it somewhere else and got it repaired properly and I've had no problems since.
When I took my iPad right before I went overseas (I swore I wouldn't go back but needed it done quickly). as I was leaving I overheard one guy telling the other asistant it was an iPad pro (which ...it obviously isn't and might have cost more to repair) so I had to go back and insist they look and see it was just a plain iPad 5. They repaired it quickly but I soon realised that the repair wasn't done properly either since the screen constantly locked within seconds of opening it and was barely useable and until I took it somewhere else to get repaired again - and guess what? It's been working fine ever since. Also, while I was dropping my iPhone in I asked for a screen protector for my Google pixel 2 and the shop assistant kept trying to tell me that a screen protector wouldnt "fit on my phone with that case" (it was a case I'd had on the phone for months that fit perfectly). He wouldn't put the protector on it unless I bought a $50 Google pixel case from him. I ended up telling him id go elsewhere and suddenly he sold me the screen protector, and of course it fit on the phone fine. It was very strange for someone who's an expert at a phone shop and I'm sure an attempt to get me to spend more money.
Be careful of what you are receiving!
I purchased an iph gold online, it said in stock however after i processed the order it said that it was on backorder. I waited a month & then they said that the space grey was available so i asked them to send that. I just received the item & it was sealed but when i put my sim inside there was already a Telstra sim inside. I emailed them & they said they only sell brand new iphones but no explanation of how i ended up with a used phone even though it was sealed, made to look brand new. I feel as it might have been a refurbished item which is ...what i dont want. *Update- They refuse to give me a credit of $25 for my purchase of the screen protector for this phone that i had to return back with it still on it. They told me that they provided me with a free screen protector which was never in my order. So first they lie about the phone being brand new but then they say its not their fault because someone else supplies it to them. Then they lie about providing me with a free screen protector. Dont trust them! Im going directly to Apple now, I recommend you do the same!

Good prices; speedy delivery.
I ordered my wife a Note 8 last week and it arrived a few days later; quick delivery considering I live in regional QLD. I was a bit sceptical ordering such an expensive device online but the prospect of saving $300 emboldened me. The only issue I had was when the My Mobile staff contacted me and said that the device I had originally ordered was no longer available (no reason was given). I simply agreed to a different model (a Telstra branded variant as opposed to the preferred unbranded one). No biggie, but I wish the website was a little more up to date. Based upon my experience I would buy from them again.

False product specification claim
This device was sold with the specifications that Dual Sim will be operational on 4G/3G basis. After Optus switching off 2G this month, I find that both SIMs on the network auto activate to 4G/2G making my phone dis functional on one SIM. My Purchase decision was influenced by the specifications that said 4G/3G compatibility. I am unable to prove this as the specifications have now been modified. The description on the product has now been changed to "Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) A520F Dual Sim (2G)* 4G 32GB Black" WARNING - Please take a screen capture before you purchase from Unique Mobiles. I also had delays with the Hong Kong shipment where the box seal was opened. "Just found that there is no contact address on their website".

Happy with the purchase
I recently purchased an import model of a Samsung phone, Unique Mobiles had the lowest cost when shipping was factored into the purchase price. Despite a minor delay in finalising the payment which the staff at Unique mobiles were very helpful with, the phone arrived on time as predicted by UM.
The phone was brand new, well packaged, and I got a free adapter plug for the charger which was a nice surprise. I have had my phone now for a week and there are no issues, so I can't comment on the warranty process.
I would be happy to purchase again from UM.

Dodgy Very rude and poor customer service, Oppo F1s Grey - Wrong Specifications
I bought a mobile “Oppo F1s Grey” as per the specification.
Operating system not loaded with “Android 6.0 (Marshmallow)”.
Network Lock - Unlocked (*2) nowhere mentioned what is *2?
Actually it’s unlocked with OPTUS, in the website they didn't mentioned.
After gifted to my friend I noticed this all issues. I feel very bad and I cheated by “uniquemobiles” showing wrong specifications and hiding information to the customers. ...After my complaint they changed to write specifications - https://www.uniquemobiles.com.au/oppo-f1s-grey They either don't answer your questions nor provide any good customer service, and if they did replied to you, they either are very rude and not being helpful at all (still didn't answer customer enquires at all) but keep denying the facts that you are trying to reach them. Anyway do not buy anything from this liars at all otherwise you'll ended up wasting all your hard earned money and facing many rude and slow customer services. I spoke customer service lead/manager he is very very rude - "Phone is working wright what's your problem, don't call regarding this issue". I have all the site screenshot of before complaint.
Cool mobile, fast delivery
Purchased a Samsung Galaxy 7 Edge. Took 4 days to process the payment but after being processed I had the mobile in my door the next day. It takes this time because they use eCheques.
Only thing they sent me the charger with the European version with an Australian adaptor which is not a big drama but I would have preferred having directly the Aussie charger instead of using the adaptor.
At this stage mobile works great.
buy phones separately to avoid rippoff tax
if you buy more than one phone and its over $1000.00 customs will stick it up you for gst-----i bought 2 phones and order was over $1000.00--- and they write this on the parcel so customs know how much it was---thanks for nothing---make sure you buy phones separately---wasnt very happy as they should advise you to do this on their web site---i thought it was $1000.00 per item--it isnt---better off buying of an ebay seller as they dont write amount on parcel---i wont buy off them again---cost me $280.00 to get thru customs

Prompt and cheap. One caveat
Great price, insanely fast delivery. My one complaint is that the phone came with the default language set to Chinese (was shipped from Hong Kong). I was only able to find the option to change it English because my last phone was the same brand and the settings menus were laid out the same.
I bought this phone, came from Hong Kong , all was good except the USB Cable. firs they were reluctant,to replace it, but after 2 email they agreed and post me one. it is OK Now.
Questions & Answers
Does anyone know if unique mobile phones has any old or mid school button mobile phones such as blackberry or nokia or a sony Xperia waterproof z3 compact like mine? 'as the speaker as been playing up lately
Check their website, probably the only way to find out if they have what your looking for. Also give them a call, they are in located Brisbane.
I already did just after I asked the question and found that they hardly got any cell phones and their prices of the sony Xperia waterproof z3 compact is expensive
All their phones seem to be new style smartphones / is it worth it to buy from unique mobiles as I had trouble with a different online shop by the name of techoni
Well sometimes its a matter of luck to be honest I bought 2 phones from them without any issues whatsoever and my most recent phone is from android enjoyed because of the price but the service is not cheap meaning First order was cancelled because goods was no longer in stock and second time phone was not an Australian stock with manual/charger for different country so it took me a while to start up the phone
Hi Ceedee, glad we were able to sort your order out in the end. Contact us via email or phone if we can help you with anything else
Never mind / I ended up fixing my sony Xperia / thanks for advice anyway - cheers
