What condition is your old device in?
We can only accept your old device for our trade in offer if it’s in good condition. That means:
- Your device is able to power on to the home screen
- Its screen is free from any physical damage (e.g. cracks or chips)
- Its touchscreen function is fully working (e.g. it responds correctly to directional swipes and selecting keyboard letters/apps, etc.)
Unfortunately, if your device doesn’t meet all of the criteria above, we’ll have to return it to you and remove the discount from your plan.
How to send us your old device
Once your order for your new device has completed and is on its way to you, we will send you a return pack containing a padded envelope.
You have 14 days to simply place your old device in the packaging and take it to your local Post Office. We’ve paid the postage so there will be no charge – however we recommend requesting proof of postage for your records.
Just to note, once we accept your trade in, we won’t be able to offer our Network Satisfaction Guarantee or Service Guarantee to you. So do make sure you’re happy with your new device and your service with us before popping your old device in the post.
Once we receive your old device, our technicians will give it a good check over, then be in touch to confirm your discount.
You have 14 days to change your mind and let us know you no longer want to progress with the trade-in offer. In this instance, we are unable to return your trade-in device but we will be able to offer you a suitable alternative (like for like device) or a cash alternative.
