    New Battery Pack

    With the New Battery Pack, you will be entitled to repair the battery replacement associated with the purchase of your new Refurbished iPhone.


    The natural wear and tear of the mobile phone battery causes it to be serviced, a service which is not guaranteed by the purchase of an iPhone Open Box Mobile. However, by purchasing the New Battery Pack, it will be possible to replace the cell phone battery and be sure of a device with New Autonomy.


    Advantages of joining the New Battery Pack:

    ✔️ Savings of up to 40% in an eventual exchange;
    ✔️ 3-month warranty on the service performed;
    ✔️ Autonomy of new equipment;
    ✔️ Standard battery.


    • There are isolated cases where batteries being exchanged may show a non-genuine battery message or a "-" symbol.
      The message and symbol may occur due to new IOS updates but do not interfere with battery life and equipment functionality.
  • Collective Buying

    Open Box Mobile's innovative strategy in the refurbished market, in which equipment is sold at a discount, when there are a certain number of interested parties in the product of the promotion.

    The equipment is only sold when the goal is reached, so it will generate shares and word-of-mouth communication between friends.

    The strategy aims to general sharing and buzz, through word of mouth on social networks, functioning as a pastime for consumers, a kind of hunt for rewards.


    How does it work?


    Open Box Mobile will create special offer groups with sales objectives and deadline, in which customers have the possibility to make purchases with aggressive discounts of up to 70%, but it is necessary to reach a minimum number of products sold to reach the discount goal.

    The customer makes the payment and automatically registers with the group, which includes a daily and exclusive communication channel about the goal to be achieved. The customer is only added after payment.
    The products will be delivered to all of Europe through open box mobile's partner carrier, or can be picked up in one of the physical stores (Lisbon or Porto).

    Target achieved

    If the goal is reached, the group has a period of 7 working days to claim your offer and the equipment will be sent to the address indicated or made available, preferably, for pick up in the physical store.

    The customer does not have the option to choose the color and battery status of the equipment, so if desired, can perform a battery upgrade at the time of purchase, because Open Box Mobile does not guarantee a minimum percentage of battery health.

    Goal not reached

    If the campaign doesn't reach the goal, the customer has 3 options:

    • You can automatically join the next group;
    • You can purchase the equipment in it, with a value hit. A lower discount would be offered than if the target had been met, but still lower than the market value.
    • If the customer has no interest in waiting for the next group or making the value hit for the purchase, can choose to receive a refund of the amount paid for registration in the group.

    The customer has 24 hours to choose one of the options described above, informing Open Box Mobile of their decision. If in 24 hours we do not receive a response, the customer enters the next campaign and has to wait for the end of the campaign to make a new decision.

    If you wish to withdraw before the goal is not finalized, it is necessary to take into account that the refund is made only by bank transfer, in which the customer must provide his IBAN in order for it to be done to the bank account. No refunds will be made for MBWay or cash. These are made ONLY by bank transfer or direct to credit card and paypal. The deadline for reimbursement of the amount in the case of target not reached is 24hours after the request and confirmation of IBAN, totaling a maximum of 2 days after expression of interest on the part of the customer in the refund.

    If the customer wants the value set to have the equipment even if the goal is not reached, it can be done only for the same product that initially competed, without color changes, storage and aesthetic grid.


    *Exchanges

    For color changes or grid upgrade and/or storage, you will be charged the amount of equipment outside of promotional campaign.


    *By participating in the campaign "COLLECTIVE PURCHASE" you will give the consent for your phone contact to be forwarded to a WhatsApp group, where you will receive all daily information about the equipment and status for the goal to be reached.
    Open Box Mobile uses technical and organizational measures to protect the security and confidentiality of Personal Data in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation.
