With our lease plans, you’re leasing your eligible phone on a 24 month Device Lease Contract with a service plan – you don’t own the device.

If you upgrade, you must return your old phone. If you signed up to a lease plan prior to 5th September 2017, you must return your old phone within 14 days of entering your new eligible service plan. From the 5th September 2017 onwards, you’ll need to return your old phone within 14 days of entering your new eligible service plan. If you don’t return it, we’ll charge you a non-return fee, which is up to the device’s fair market value (to be advised at the time) plus 20%. 

At the end of your lease, you must return the phone undamaged. If it’s damaged, you’ll pay the damage fee. If you don’t return it, (subject to our approval) you’ll continue to pay your monthly lease payments for up to 6 months, then a non-return fee of the device’s fair market value (to be advised at the time).

You can offer to purchase your phone device at the end of lease. Be sure to remove the SIM and any personal or confidential data from the device before returning it.

If you cancel your lease early or we terminate it for your breach before month 12, you must pay any remaining monthly lease payments (excluding any discounts as a result of your eligible service plan) and you will then own the device. If you cancel early or we terminate it for your breach after month 12, you can return the handset and pay $99 if it's undamaged or up to $499 if it is damaged or you can keep it and pay fair market value (to be advised at the time) and then own the device. All of these fees and payments are on top of any early termination charges for your service plan and accessories.
