How to return a Bring-It-Back™ device

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to return a Bring-It-Back™ device

Step 1: Check the device condition


In order for a device to be considered eligible for return it must meet the following 6 criteria. If it does not meet the criteria you will need to pay the Bring-It-Back™ Program Amount.

  • Device must power on and navigate properly to the home screen
  • The activation lock must be turned off
  • The LCD must function correctly and be free of dead spots or bruising
  • The screen must be undamaged and free of cracks
  • The rest of the device must be undamaged with no cracks, missing parts or signs of water damage (hinges, keypad, housing, buttons, battery, etc.)
  • All information must be wiped

Take advantage of the TELUS Device Checkup app to check your device condition.
