Objective: To define and standardise PhoneFast’s Out of Box Failure (OBF) process and criteria

An OBF is defined as a new handset that is faulty when first activated.
Criteria to qualify as a valid OBF


  • The handset must have been supplied by PhoneFast.
  • The handset must be returned to the point of sale within 7 days from the date of purchase.
  • A valid Proof of Purchase must accompany the handset.
  • The contents of the box are complete, and the packaging is intact (handset, original battery,
    Original charger, original antenna, manual and any other accessories normally included at point of sale)
  • The IMEI number on the box must match the IMEI number on the handset.
  • There is no physical damage to the handset or it’s accessories or signs of neglect due to physical abuse, liquid damage, screen scratched, dents or marks, etc.

Without the above the handset will not be assessed and an OBF will not be issued, the handset will then be treated as a repair.


A repair/OBF document will be sent to the client to be filled in and sent back to us (you can download the repairs.OBF document here)


  • On receipt of the document by PhoneFast, the collection will be arranged for the unit to be returned to us. Please note the collection can take 2-3 working days, dependant on the courier availability and area for collection.
