WHAT IS 'GOOD WORKING ORDER'?
If you want to trade-up, your device needs to be in “good working order”. This means your device functions normally – that is, it makes and receives calls and texts, connects to the internet, and has normal wear and tear as listed below:
- Your device can power on and off.
- Your touchscreen is fully functional and has no imperfections such as lines or marks.
- Your device does not have any missing buttons or damage to other components such as charging ports, SIM tray.
- The device (including the touchscreen) is not cracked and does not have any severe scratches (normal wear and tear such as light marks and scratches are okay).
- Any locking features are disabled (for example, find my iPhone on iOS devices).
