What is a Certified phone?
Under our Certified Phones Program, we work with verified professional phone partners with at least 4.9/5 rating to provide phones that you can have full confidence in buying, by delivering on the following promises:
- Full Working Condition - All phones are switched on for testing of the Touch screen, Battery, Display, Cameras, Headphone jack, Speakers & microphones, Charging port, Wifi connectivity, and Bluetooth connectivity.
- Minimum 30-Day Warranty - All devices are certified by our professional partners to be fully functional and come with a 30-Day Warranty. This gives you the assurance of a quality product, and post-purchase service.
- Free Tracked Shipping - It’s convenient, fuss-free, and safe! Receive your item in 3 working days.
- 7-Day Exchange - If you change your mind, you may exchange the device as long as the item is returned in its original condition and packaging.
Find out more by asking your questions with the ‘Ask Seller’ button at the bottom of the item! Our partners will respond to you as soon as possible. Learn more about our 5-step Certification process and condition rating for Certified phones.
How does the 30-Day Warranty work?
All devices in our Certified Phones Program have been professionally inspected and certified by our partners and come with a 30-Day warranty that covers all product defects, for both hardware and software. The warranty does not cover damages caused by the customer or any other persons or impact. This includes (and is not exhaustive of) damage caused by force, water or any external factors. Certified devices may come with additional manufacturer warranty.
If the item cannot be repaired or replaced with the same model, you can exchange for an electronic device of the same or lower value or top up the difference for a device of a higher value with our partner. If the same model is not available, you can get a refund from our partner.
Carousell offers this warranty only for orders transacted on Carousell with Carousell Protection. To claim warranty, you need to chat with the seller and go down to their shop within the 30-Day Warranty period. Learn more about warranty and exchange.
How does the 7-Day Exchange work?
To be eligible for an exchange, your item must be unused and in the same condition and packaging as you received it.
If you change your mind, you can exchange for a mobile phone of the same or lower value or top up the difference for a device of a higher value. No cash refund will be provided. If it is a functionality issue, it’ll be covered by the 30-Day Warranty.
Carousell offers this exchange only for orders transacted on Carousell with Carousell Protection. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your device, you need to chat with the seller and go down to their shop within the 7-Day Exchange period. You can then either exchange for the same device with the same condition or top-up and purchase another used phone of a higher value.
