    Does anyone have experience of Future Comms? 12th Jan 18 at 3:05 PM
    My brother has asked me to look into this. Future Comms have offered to buy him out of his 3 contract if he commits to them on a SIM only deal for 3 years. He likes the sound of the deal, but the contract they would be buying him out of effectively includes the cost of his S8 and he'll want to replace that phone in, say, 1 year.

    Future Comms have said he can upgrade at any time, but doesn't the deal on hinge on whether they get to charge an outrageous amount for a new phone contract in a year's time? And he doesn't know now how much that might be?

    Has anyone been through this with them? Are they a decent company or fraudsters? Reviews on trusted pilot go from one extreme to the other.

    Thanks for any help/advice

    Caroline

    I wouldn't go near something like that. Unless it's a business contract I think 3 year contracts are now illegal. If a business contract you'll also find VAT is added and there may be other disadvantages. Promises by dubious outfits are common; the practice often leaves punters in a state on here trying to get themselves out of an expensive mess.

    It looks from their website as though they only offer business to business deals which would mean many consumer protection laws may not apply.

    I have plenty of bad experience with this bad company. They hounded us into a three year contract and promised to pay 1000 get out fee to EE now we had to pay it and three months later still not had refund. All they do is pass u around the system. Now we taking them to court

    3 year contract, who are they kidding? Does not bode well when they cannot even create a web site, if theirs is this one:
    http://www.future-comms.co.uk/
    It is currently under construction...

    You have to wonder how middlemen can offer a better deal than going direct to the network. In addition they need to make a profit, and I guess that profit comes from their customers. I would shop around and certainly not entertain this kind of offer.

    Hi all I've been having a very bad experience with Future comms they owe me over 500 through cashback. I tookout 3 contracts and only received cashback twice. Its been over 6 months and I have only had false promises.

    Then you've waited about 5 months too long to do something about it. LBA, small claims court. Though that depends on a basic understanding of any mobile contract involving cashback and given your current post it seems highly likely that you haven't done any research beforehand.
