Your Phone is covered against defects in materials and workmanship when used in accordance with the manufacturers user manual, technical specifications and any other manufacturer guidance released from time to time, for a period of 12 months from the date that you purchased your Phone. This is called the “warranty period”.
If there is a defect or fault with your Phone during the warranty period, we will repair or replace your Phone (at our discretion). These are the only remedies available under this warranty and you will not be able to choose whether your Phone is repaired or replaced.
You cannot benefit from this warranty if you:

any accessories that came with your Phone including, but not limited to, the Phone charger and Phone headphones;
Software, even if installed on the Phone when purchased. Please refer to the licensing agreement which is given in respect of software by the software developer for details of your rights in respect to any software.
If we find that there is a fault or defect and you are covered by this warranty, we will either:
repair your Phone using new or used parts that are equivalent to new in functionality and performance; or
replace your Phone with a pre-owned Phone that is at least equivalent to the quality and functionality of your original Phone.
We may install system/software updates onto your new or repaired Phone and you will be unable to revert to an earlier version of the system/software once this has been done.
You will be responsible for reinstalling all software programs (including apps), data and information onto your repaired or replaced Phone.

Where we replace your Phone:
The replacement Phone will be owned by you and we will retain the original. You will not be entitled to ask for the original Phone to be returned to you; and any remaining time left on your 12 month warranty will be transferred to your replacement Phone and if there is less than 3 months remaining on the warranty, we will extend the warranty so that you will have 3 months’ warranty on the replacement Phone.
