Costco's return policy for cellular phones is 90 days from date of original purchase. Within 90 days you may receive a refund on the handset itself. However, if you cancel service outside of the 14-day carrier trial period you are responsible for any applicable fees (see carrier Cancellation Policy). All phone(s) must be returned in a complete, like-new condition with all accessories, box, and instructions. Within the 90-day period a defective/non-working phone may only be exchanged for the exact same model. Costco does not sell replacements for broken or damaged phones. Phones may not be returned or exchanged for a different model. All cellular phone purchases require either a new 2-year activation agreement or a qualified upgrade.
Call or email for return authorization and a prepaid label. After receiving the label, send the item back. Upon receipt at our distribution center, you will be refunded. This process takes approximately 1-2 weeks. All merchandise including all of the components, must be returned in original, like new condition.

For residential and commercial addresses in the United States, we ship packages via Fed Ex, Monday - Friday. For APO/FPO destinations, we ship packages via USPS, Monday - Friday. If the shipping carrier attempts to deliver an order and there is no one home, the driver may leave the shipment for you. It is at the driver's discretion to leave it at the door or not. If the driver does not leave the order, a notice will be left with instructions on rescheduling your delivery or arranging to pick up your shipment at a local facility. Typically, 3 attempts will be made to deliver the package. If delivery is unsuccessful after 3 attempts, your package will be held for 5 business days and then it will be returned to the shipper.

Transferring your existing phone number can take a few minutes or up to 24 hours. If you are transferring a landline number it may take up to 10 days to complete.

Yes, it is possible to keep the number you already have from another wireless or landline carrier
Information provided must exactly match your current service provider's records. If there is a mismatch in the data, your port will be delayed. Things like misspelled names, incorrect billing addresses, and incomplete information can delay your transfer. If we experience a problem during the number transfer process we will provide you with a temporary number and send an email to the email address provided with instructions on how you can complete the porting process.
Port eligibility is the process of verifying that the number requested for porting is local to the service area where the port is to occur, and confirming that the carrier has both a license and coverage in the specified service area. If eligible, you may be able to transfer your existing phone number to the carrier of your choice.
Refer to a recent bill or call your current service provider to verify your information. This is especially important if you have a PIN or password on your account that you can't remember.
No. The number must be in active service in order to be transferred. Your old service will be canceled automatically as part of the port process.
