Return your old phone

Your new phone will come with a return shipping label and an insert for your old phone. You will also receive an email with detailed return instructions.

  1. Perform a factory data reset on your old phone to clear off your personal data. You can find this in Settings.
  2. Place your old phone under the plastic in the return insert included in your return box. Do not include any accessories.
  3. Place the insert in the shipping box and seal the box with tape.
  4. Place the return label on the box.
  5. Take your package to the carrier on the label or contact the carrier for a pickup.

That's all there is to it. Be sure to return your old phone within 14 days of receiving your new phone or your account will be charged the full amount of the new phone. If you decide you want to keep your old phone, you can, but your account will be charged the full value of the new phone.

Visible Swap can be a great value if you need a new phone and a new service but can't budget buying a new phone. If you've been keeping an old phone as long as possible before upgrading, Visible Swap can be a great way to get a new phone and unlimited service at the same time.
