Before you donate your mobile phone:

There are four steps which we encourage you to do before you donate your mobile phone.

  1. If the phone still turns on, disconnect it from any cloud service and complete a factory reset to erase any data from the phone.
  2. Remove your sim card from the phone and keep it.
  3. Leave the battery in the phone.
  4. Switch the phone off.

Now your phone is ready to be donated to RE:MOBILE.
