    You can cancel your trade-in as long as it has not yet been processed by our warehouse. If you would like to cancel your trade-in or if you have any other questions please feel free to email us at [email protected].

    Due to delays with Royal Mail, your prepaid postage bag may take up to 10 working days to arrive. If you still haven't received it after this time, email us at [email protected] and we'll send you another one. Rest assured, all quoted prices will be honoured during this disruption.

    Once you’ve traded in your device, we pass it on to a third party so it can be re-used. Handsets are checked, all the data is wiped and most are then sent to developing markets where mobiles phone use is growing rapidly.

    As well as working phones we also pay cash for all types of broken phones, including phones that don’t turn on or have moderate damage such as a broken screen or damaged casing. We can recycle for free any phones which have been extensively damaged, such as where the casing is smashed, or the internals are exposed.

    We buy all phones whether or not they were bought from iD Mobile.

    We buy phones from all networks whether or not you bought the phone from iD Mobile.

    We recommend you do a factory reset on the phone before you send it in, and we also back that up by wiping the phone as part of our recycling process.

    Claiming your enhanced trade-in offer is easy. Simply complete this form with your purchase information and send us your phone. Once it's assessed by a Currys engineer, you'll receive your payment.

    Please note – we won't be able to process your payment if we receive your phone before you submit the form. The enhanced payment will be paid separately, so you should expect 2 trade-in transactions in your bank account.
