Thank you for participating in the Mobile Monster cash-back offer.
By sending your phone/device - you are accepting the Terms & Conditions outlined below.
I agree to the following Terms & Conditions of www.mobilemonster.com.au:
1. Where possible, Mobile Monster will reset any of the devices received to the factory default and erase all content and settings, however, if the state of the device is irrecoverable, a reset may not be able to be performed, and in these instances, it is the customer’s responsibility to secure the data on the device.
2. I am the sole and rightful owner of this mobile phone being sold to Mobile Monster. If any devices(s) that I trade in turn out to be lost or stolen, I will waive my right to be paid.
3. The condition and model number of the device(s) that I have provided to Mobile Monster are accurate.
4. Mobile Monster is not liable for items that may be damaged during transit by Australia Post via our Free Satchel Method. We recommend to our customers that if you'd like extra peace of mind when sending an item, you can add an Extra Cover using Australian posts' extra cover options. It provides loss or damage cover up to the specified value of your items while it's being carried by Australia Post.
5. Mobile Monster is not liable for items that may be lost or damaged during transit by Australia Post using your own postage method. You have the option to purchase insurance via Australia Post, at an additional cost – We highly recommend this for speed, reliability and peace of mind.

12. All device pricing are inclusive of GST.
13. I will ensure that all payment information (PayPal Email Address, Account name, BSB and Account number) are correct. Mobile Monster does not validate the details provided and cannot guarantee the receiving bank validates the details for the payment instruction. Any error in these payment details may result in a loss of funds.

This includes the unauthorised software upgrades also known as “jailbroken” for Apple iPhones and “rooted” for Android phones.

20. If I send my device into Mobile Monster without making an order to sell my phone on the website ("sell order") Mobile Monster will attempt to contact you via a letter/mobile number if we do not have any other details. Upon receiving such device(s) that do not have any "sell order(s)" associated with the device we will contact you after 2 weeks of receiving these. After initial contact is made - if there is no response we will process the device. After such time you waive any rights to request the handset back, and we will have the right to offer at the time of contact the "current website price" of the handset.
21. If you are selling us a mobile phone device or Tablets, we may request proof of purchase (invoice) from you. The invoice must be either a PDF form or a photo of a physical invoice. If this information cannot be provided, Mobile Monster has the right to reject your order.
