The Phone Protection Plan can be added at a Freedom Mobile retail store location within 30 days of activating or upgrading your phone. Coverage is optional and you can cancel at any time.

What happens when your term ends?

Once your 2-year term has ended, you will need to decide if you want to either keep your phone or return it and upgrade to a new one.

Return Your Phone

Ready to part ways with your phone? Here’s what you’ll need to do:

  • All TradeUp phones must undergo a phone inspection within month 24 of your term.

  • Check that your phone is in good condition and bring it to a participating Freedom Mobile location, where your phone will be inspected for return eligibility. If your phone is damaged and no longer meets the TradeUp eligibility criteria, you will be required to pay the TradeUp credit amount plus applicable taxes, and the phone is yours to keep. Learn more here about the return condition requirements.

Your information will be wiped from the phone after it’s returned, so be sure to back it up. Once returned, consider upgrading to one of the latest eligible phones with TradeUp.

Keep Your Phone

Love your phone? Keep it.

When your term comes to a close, simply repay the original TradeUp credit amount and you and your phone can live happily ever after. Or just until another one comes along.

Upgrade Before Your Term is Up.

Want to upgrade your phone early? No problem. This can be done anytime during the 24 months of your term.. All you have to do is pay back the TradeUp credit amount and choose the phone you want to upgrade to. You’ll also need to pay off any remaining MyTab balance in addition to the TradeUp credit amount.
