About the products we offer

Network bands in your country

When purchasing your phone, please double-check network bands supported by it. Here is a handy link you can use to check 2G voice, 3G data and 4G data bands supported in your country: http://www.gsmarena.com/network-bands.php3. Please double-check the bands that your network provider operates on, then compare the band at the link provided above to the product specification page. Please ensure you do this before purchasing your phone or data-enabled tablet. If you still are unsure, please contact our customer service team for support.

The top mobile carriers in UK (but not limited to) are O2, EE and Vodafone. The network bands they operate on are GSM 900 and GSM 1800 (2G compatible); UMTS 900, UMTS 2100 (3G compatible) and LTE 800, LTE 1800 and LTE 2600 (4G compatible). Please note that each carrier uses specific network bands. Please check with your network (against the bands on our product specification pages) before purchasing if you are unsure.

"Do I get warranty with all products I order?"

Yes. We offer a standard warranty with all physical products we sell, backed by an in-house warranty service and repair team. Information on this can be found on our Warranty Information page. If you require more information, please do not hesitate to contact our customer service team.

My new phone or tablet has apps for use outside of my country

As many manufactures pre-install apps on phones and tablets, you may find some devices have apps not intended for use in your country on them. This is common practice, much like phones coming with a Vodafone or T-Mobile app pre-installed on them.

This should not stop you from installing apps that are available in your country through the device’s app store (unless specified on the product page).

My device is in a different language

Unless specified on the product page, all devices we sell can have the language changed to English. In many cases this is done for you by our quality control team before it is sent out. If that is not the case, please feel free to contact our friendly customer service team for more information and assistance.

The manual is in a different language

This is unfortunately not something we can control. However, we work hard to provide digital local language manuals through our site. Please check out the manuals and support links page on our website, and if you need further assistance please don't hesitate to contact our customer service team.

"What is a First Class Refurbished item?"

It is a device in 'as new' condition and professionally refurbished. Fully tested prior to dispatch, they include all accessories and packaging, as well as a 12+1 months’ standard warranty.


"Which types of delivery do you offer?"

Regardless of your location, we offer free shipping on all orders across UK. A signature will be required on receipt. Depending on stock availability, some items take longer than others to reach you. When placing your order, please check the lead-time to shipping from our central warehouse (located under the price on the product page, e.g. 5-7 days). Please check our Shipping and Returns page for more information.

"Where is my order?"

If you have not yet received your order, please double-check the tracking information we emailed to you. If you have not yet received the tracking details, please check the lead-time of the products you ordered on their respective product page(s) - they might not have left our warehouse as-yet. If you still cannot track your order, or the expected date of arrival has passed, please contact our customer service team for help.

I live in a remote area

If your order is being delivered to a remote area, please allow 2-3 extra days for delivery. Couriers normally define remote areas as locations that take longer than normal to deliver to (e.g. if you live off the mainland, or in some rural areas). If you have a particular question about whether your region is classed as a remote area before you place your order, please contact our customer service team for help.

Returns and Refunds

Replacing items damaged in transit or DOA (Dead on Arrival)

If, in the unlikely instance, you receive your order and it is damaged or DOA, please contact us within 15 days of receipt, so we can arrange the return of the order for replacement. Please follow the returns instructions on our Shipping and Returns page. Don’t worry - we will resolve the issue ASAP.

Refunds for items either damaged in transit, DOA or incorrect product received

If in the unlikely instance, you receive your order and it is damaged, DOA or it does not contain the product you ordered, please contact us within 15 days of receipt, so we can arrange the return of the order for a refund or replacement. Please follow the returns instructions on our Shipping and Returns page. Don’t worry - we will resolve the issue ASAP.

I have not received my refund for my returned item yet

Please contact our customer service team for an update - they will confirm the date of refund with our accounts team. Please allow time for the parcel to arrive back in our central Hong Kong warehouse, and to have been inspected by our returns team (this may take a week or two, in certain cases slightly longer). Please note that once we have refunded the order on our side, it may take a few days for your credit card company to apply the credit back to your account. Every credit card company and bank is different and some take longer than others - we have no control over this, but can assure you that when we have processed a refund, it will appear back in your account within a few days. If you are concerned, please also contact your credit card provider to confirm.
