Request a return

You have 14 days from when you receive your device, mobile broadband, tablet or other equipment to tell us you've changed your mind and request a return.

To request your return online you can complete our returns form.

For mobile plan returns, call us on 0800 079 0103.


Once your form has been received and processed, our team will get in touch with you to advise how to return your equipment and next steps.


How do I return my device by post?

Once you've contacted us to confirm your return, we'll send you a pre-addressed silver bag, which is tracked and insured to offer protection against loss and damage. 

Follow these instructons to ensure your return is processed as quickly as possible:


    send your equipment back to us in the pre-addressed silver bag we've sent you


    new, unused items must be sealed when they're returned


    make sure any theft or loss-protection apps on your device are disabled (e.g. Find My Phone on iPhone or iPads)


    ensure all items, including accessories and free promotional items, are returned undamaged. You may be charged for damaged items

If you change your mind after requesting a return, you don't need to contact us. If we don't receive the equipment within 30 days of the return request then we'll assume you'll be keeping the goods and your contract will continue to run as normal. 

Good to know

There may be an additional charge to your bill if Find My iPhone is not removed from your iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch.
