We're a part of the AO family

AO are a well-known and loved brand and we share a lot of the same values. We’re all about having the happiest customers so we’re a perfect match. When you smile, we know we’ve done a good job. It’s at the heart of everything we do, and it’s the reason our logo is always smiling.

When it comes to selling appliances and electricals, AO have got the lot. Washing machines? Yep. TVs? Check. Laptops? Absolutely. Except doorbells (just kidding, we’ve got those too). And now, with Mobile Phones Direct, we’ve got a fantastic range of mobile phones and SIM plans too.

AO started in a pub in Bolton, a £1 bet and a mission that things could be done better! 20 years later, we have amazing scores on Trustpilot, help over eight million customers every year and employ more than 3,000 people.

So, what does that mean if you’re already a customer of Mobile Phones Direct? The good thing is that nothing changes. You’ll still get the amazing service and great deals that you’re used to. And now, you can rest assured you’re shopping with a company that puts you at the heart of everything they do.

AO, Let’s Go!

Sharing the love

When people trade-in their old phones, we fix them up so they’re all shiny and new again, ready to go to a new home and be by someone else’s side day and night. Plus, they’re a lot cheaper, making them kinder to your wallet, as well as the environment.
