Please only consider your signup successful if you have received a confirmation message from us.

4.2. You can send "STOP" prior to receiving your billed message, which will opt you out of the ongoing service and receiving premium rate charges. A free 'cost reminder' message is sent to the handset prior to billing. This will reconfirm the service you have joined, the costs involved, and remind you how to stop the service so that you no longer receive premium SMS. Please ensure that you save this message on your phone for future reference.

Should a mobile network operator encounter failed delivery attempts of a premium message prior to a user sending in the STOP command, the network may still attempt to re-deliver the failed message even after the STOP command has been sent to the promoter. Users understand and accept that the promoter has no control in this matter. All STOP commands are answered by a free text confirming the STOP command and the cancellation of the subscription as explained in the Optout section of this page.

11. Complaints Procedure

We always do our best to meet the needs of those who contact us, but we appreciate that sometimes you can find yourself in a situation where you are not happy with the service that has been provided. If you would like to make a complaint regarding the contact you have had with, or the service you have received from us, then this policy sets out the process for you to use.

Any and all complaints will be dealt with appropriately, and will be investigated by a member of staff within the company with sufficient seniority to resolve the issues. While dealing with your complaint we promise to be respectful of you at all times, in turn we expect the same behaviour towards our staff. All customer service calls are recorded and our staff reserve the right to terminate any call in which they feel abused or threatened.

The majority of all complaints can be handled and resolved at the first point of contact, however this is not always possible. We aim to complete all investigations and resolve all complaints within 10 working days of the complaint being made.

How to make a complaint

All complaints can be made by telephone or by email using the below information:
Telephone: 020 7112 2342
Email: cs@bonafidemobile.com

For your complaint to be properly registered please provide us with the following information:

All of the above information will be kept confidential and private, to be used for the sole purpose of investigating and responding to the complaint made. This information will not be provided to any third parties unless absolutely necessary in order to fully investigate the complaint, by lodging a complaint, you are agreeing that this can occur.

People who can complain

A complaint can be made by either someone who has received services from or relating to Bona Fide Mobile Ltd, or a representative of the above described service user. Where a representative wishes to make a complaint on behalf of someone else, they may be required to provide proof that they have the permission of the service user to make the complaint or query on their behalf.

After a complaint has been made

Where a complaint is made in person or over the telephone:

All complaints will receive a response within 1 working day, however if further investigation is necessary before an explanation/resolution can be provided, then we aim to resolve your complaint within 10 working days. In responding to your complaint, we will follow the procedures set out in this policy unless other guidelines are agreed with the complainant, and will ensure that: Complaints should be made as soon as possible after the incident giving rise to the complaint. We do expect all complaints to be current; however we will accept a historic complaint if we are satisfied that: It is important for the complainant to be aware that if their complaint involves disputing the use of, or registration to one of our services, they may be required to provide evidence which confirms their claim (E.G. a copy of the mobile phone bill). As with all other personal information, in any instance where the complainant is required to provide additional information or documentation, this will only be used for the sole purpose of investigating and responding to the complaint made, and will be kept confidential and private.

All complainants have the right to refer their complaint on to the appropriate governing body if they are unhappy with the outcome of our investigation, however this referral must be made by the complainant and will not be made by Bona Fide Mobile Ltd on the complainant's behalf.

All complainants will be given the opportunity to receive an acknowledgement letter or email upon request. This will discuss not only the complaint itself, but the manner in which the complaint has so far been handled and the period in which the investigation of the complaint is likely to be completed.

Once a complaint has been dealt with

Once investigations have been completed, upon request, a report can be provided which includes:

A letter/email will be sent to the complainant where necessary, confirming all of the above information and reminding them of their right to take the matter further if they are unhappy with the outcome.

In circumstances where the response/final outcome of the investigation is not ready within 10 working days we will notify the complainant accordingly and explain the reason why.
