    Why might I have to send a mobile device to Verizon?

    You may need to send us a mobile device(e.g., phone, tablet, etc.) because you:

    • Changed your mind about a purchase during the 30-day return & exchange period.
    • Have a malfunctioning device that's under warranty.
    • Want to trade in for a new device or do an early upgrade.

    Note: If you need to send us your home internet equipment (e.g. routers, receivers), different return processes apply. Visit our LTE Home Internet FAQs, 5G Home Internet FAQs or Fios Equipment return page to learn more.

    What are the steps to send in a mobile device?

    No matter why you’re sending us a mobile device, you must prepare the device before sending (e.g., backing up content and wiping data).
