1. Defining Our Mobile Device Terms?

1.1.1 This document is referred to as the "Mobile Device Terms" and forms part of Your Agreement with Us where You have purchased a Mobile Device from Us.

1.1.2 The General Terms and Conditions are a set of general terms that govern our relationship generally. These Mobile Device Terms contain more specific terms relating to Your purchase of a Mobile Device from Us.

1.1.3 To the extent of any inconsistency between these Mobile Device Terms and the General Terms and Conditions in relation to the subject matter covered in these Mobile Device Terms, these Mobile Device Terms prevail.

2 About the Mobile Devices that We offer

2.1 Pre-owned devices

2.1.1 Every Mobile Device that We currently offer for purchase: (a) is a pre-owned mobile phone; (b) comes Unlocked and with all data removed; and (c) is fully tested to satisfy Our rigorous standards before being classified as “fix2U Certified”.

2.1.2 Without limiting Your rights under the Australian Consumer Law, by applying for or ordering a Mobile Device You acknowledge that such Mobile Device is pre-owned (and not a new mobile phone) and that the Purchase Price for that Mobile Device reflects the fact that it is a pre-owned mobile phone.

2.2 “fix2U Certified” reserved only for the best pre-owned devices

2.2.1 Our promise to You is that before We make any pre-owned phone available for purchase by You, it needs to pass Our 53-point functionality and cosmetic test (the 53-Point Test).

2.2.2 Upon passing Our 53-Point Test, the pre-owned device is then “fix2U Certified”, which is confidently backed-up by our 12-Month Device Warranty.

2.3 Your rights as a consumer

2.3.1 Our Mobile Devices come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure. You are also entitled to have Your Mobile Device repaired or replaced if Your Mobile Device fails to be of acceptable quality other than what is listed on the fix2U grading page, and the failure does not amount to a major failure under the Australian Consumer Law.

2.3.2 Your ability to choose a particular remedy will also depend on whether any failure to comply with a guarantee is a minor or major failure under the Australian Consumer Law. We can choose which remedy We may provide for a minor failure (being any failure which does not constitute a major failure). A major failure includes a problem where a Mobile Device would not have been purchased by a reasonable consumer who was fully aware of the problem, or Mobile Device that is substantially unfit for its common purposes and cannot be fixed within a reasonable time or where a Mobile Device is unsafe.

5 Guarantees

5.1 fix2U inspects and tests devices to ensure they are suitable to be repaired. This includes testing crucial functions of the device including the battery.

5.2 We class batteries as consumable components and therefore provide limited warranty. During the testing of the device, we ensure that the battery capacity is sufficient and exceeds the 85% mark relative to the device's original capacity.  In the event that you receive a device with a unsatisfactory battery, you must make fix2U aware of the issue within 7 days of receiving the device. Past the period of 7 days, we will not longer be liable for claims involving a poor battery.
