Delivery formalities – In order to complete the Service Request, the courier engaged by Chendol to deliver the Like Phone will:

  1. ask for and verify the same identity proof you provided when you file for the Claim;
  2. in the case of a Replacement – except loss:
    1. verify that the Phone you are presenting is the same as the Registered Phone (by comparing the IMEI) and has had all activation and phone locking features disabled;
    2. collect the Service Fee from you (in cash) if it has not been paid via PayPal at the time of the Service Request, and collect the Registered Phone from you (the “Original Registered Phone”); and
    3. remove all SIM cards and SD cards from the Registered Phone; and
  3. deliver the Like Phone (the “Delivered Phone”) to you alone (and no proxy will be accepted).

You must disable all activation and phone locking features such as Find My iPhone or other such features before returning your Registered Phone to the courier. The ‘Find My iPhone’ feature can only be turned off using your unique Apple ID and password. If you do not disable such feature we may have to cancel your Service Request or treat your Service Request as a Replacement and charge the Replacement Fee.

As soon as the Delivered Phone is in your possession, you acknowledge that:

  1. the Delivered Phone becomes your Registered Phone;
  2. the Delivered Phone is sufficient consideration for you to transfer ownership of the Original Registered Phone; and
  3. you have relinquished all rights to the Original Registered Phone; and Chendol will not return the Original Registered Phone to

Incorrect Phone – In the case of a Replacement, if Chendol discovers that the Phone you returned to its representative was not the Registered Phone at the time of the Service Request, you must return the correct Eligible Phone within 7 days of delivery of the Delivered Phone. Failing this, Chendol may charge you an additional fee equivalent to the Redemption – for loss Service Fee.
