Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Renewd® and new?
A Renewd® iPhone has been given a second life and has been checked at more than 80 points by certified specialists, thoroughly cleaned and provided with the latest software. Because it is a used product, a Renewd® device may contain small traces of use. These will never affect the functioning, because every Renewd® device is 100% in technical condition.
What does the Refurbished Certificate mean?
The Refurbished Certificate is a recognised Dutch quality mark in the area of used products, so you can be sure that you are making a good purchase. This Certificate is supported by Techniek Nederland and TüV, among others. So far, the Certificate only applies to iPhone, iPad and MacBook devices, and these Renewd® are covered by it.
My device is not new, but used. How can this be?
Every Renewd® device has been given a second life and may therefore show some signs of use, but this does not affect its ease of use. Each unit is checked by expert specialists on more than 80 points with official software of the manufacturer. The inside functions just like a new one, but the outside may show some signs of use.
The device has some scratches, what should I do?
Every Renewd® device has been given a sustainable second life and may therefore have a few scratches, but this does not affect its ease of use. Each device is checked by certified specialists on more than 80 points with the official software of the manufacturer. The inside functions just like a new one, but the outside may show some signs of use.
The device is not completely clean, what should I do?
Every Renewd® unit is disinfected and cleaned after a thorough quality check, just before it is packed. Because we use durable materials, it is possible that some dust is released during transport and the device is not delivered completely clean. This does not affect its user-friendliness.
The device does not boot up, what should I do?
Did you receive your Renewd® device, but it does not boot up? It is possible that the battery is empty when the Renewd® iPhone is delivered. Put it on the charger for at least 4 hours before using it for the first time. Does the device still not work? Request a repair at https://www.renewd.com/warranty.
The device asks for a password that I did not set myself, what should I do?
A Renewd® iPhone is always reset to factory settings before it comes in the box. It is therefore not possible that it has a password or data of previous users on it. If you forgot your own password, please follow the next steps: https://support.apple.com/nl-nl/HT204306 .
I am not satisfied with the cosmetic quality of the unit, what should I do?
Every Renewd® device has been used before and may have some minor traces of use, but is technically always 100% in order. The guideline for the traces of use is that in a normal (natural) light, at an arm’s length distance, you will not see any obvious scratches or other traces of use. Should the product not meet your expectations, please contact us by e-mail at [email protected] with photos and an explanation.
There are no earphones / headset in the package, what should I do?
Earphones or a headset are never included with a Renewd® smartphone.
