Uberlink has the right to withdraw any offer after submission if it is later found that the device put through testing originally did not produce a true reflection of the phone’s cosmetic or hardware condition. In these instances, we will communicate with you firstly to explain any discrepancies and offer a revised price. If these discoveries are made after payment Uberlink will contact all parties involved to recover the funds.
 
If you request any device back that has not complied with our terms and conditions and grading matrix or has failed testing (e.g. classified by you as brand new boxed and is used, or faulty but is BER) we will charge up to £30 to return these devices.
