A quick recap, if you've taken our insurance policy you'll be covered against loss, theft and accidental damage.

However, if you return the phone to us damaged, we may charge you for the cost of repair as outlined by the Repair Charges set out in your agreement.


Fair Wear & Tear (Grade C) - No charge

Obvious signs of use such as some deep scratching (2 or fewer deep scratches on front glass that are less than 3cm in length), small dents, discolouring or changes in the paintwork, but no cracks anywhere on the Handset.
