Model and colour selection is subject to availability.
Q5: Now that I've chosen my device, what exactly do I have to do to make a switch?
Firstly, check the device you want to switch is registered with us, then turn off 'Find my iPhone' or similar services, pay the service fee and choose your delivery address. When the driver arrives, you must show your personal ID and hand over your registered device.
Q6: How do I pay the service request fee? How is this calculated?
You have to pay the switch service fee by credit card. Each request requires a switch fee which depends on the plan purchased and the SRP of your device at purchase. Check your MyAccount section for details. If you exchange a phone that isn’t the registered one or if you don’t turn off features like Find my iPhone, you may be subject to an additional charge of up to the Original SRP. We may elect to take a hold on your credit card at the time of exchange to protect us. Once we confirm we have received the correct device then only the regular fee will be charged and the additional fee will not be charged.
