Full rebrand brings online business into line with existing marketing and sponsorship deals
A1 Comms has rebranded its buymobilephones.net online business to buymobiles.net to provide greater consistency with its mass marketing.
The rebrand, which has seen a change in name, logo and website design, coincides with the online retailer’s 10th year in business.
It has also resulted in A1 Comms changing the URL of the website, which went live on August 19.
The buymobilephones.net logo, which featured blue and orange lettering, has been replaced with the buymobiles.net logo in blue and black.
The shortened name has featured on the shirts of Derby County Football Club since it began its sponsorship deal with them in July 2010 and on the shirts of Derbyshire County Cricket Club since that deal commenced at the start of the current season in April.
Buymobiles.net was set up in 2003 and is one of four online consumer retail brands operated by A1 Comms, running alongside Mobile Shop, Affordable Mobiles and Phones.co.uk, which went live last month. It sells contract and SIM-free handsets from manufacturers including Apple, Samsung, Nokia, Sony Mobile, HTC and BlackBerry, making connections to all major UK mobile operators.
A1 Comms Group managing director Stuart Joce said: “The rebrand to buymobiles.net ensures consistency throughout our online offering and our sponsorship affiliations with Derby County FC and Derby County Cricket Club. We are also delighted to simultaneously be celebrating buymobiles.net’s 10th birthday. Over the last decade we have seen the company go from strength to strength and we look forward to seeing more significant growth in the future.”
