I pre-ordered the s24 ultra and I opted to trade in my s22 ultra however it says I have 7 days to send my phone off to samsung but is it 7 days after I receive the phone or 7 days after the transaction went through? I wish samsung made it a little bit more clearer

It's seven days after you receive the new phone.
Personally I'd send it in as early as possible. Postal strikes or other factors won't be counted.
After transferring over to the new phone.
Sign out for all your accounts on it
Factory reset it
Take plenty of date stamped good quality photos of the old phone. Including with the screen on.
I usually take photos of the packaging and with the label supplied as well

Thank you, luckily I still got the original box and lots of package from amazon 😅 I'll probably send it after 2 days of comparing the two

Yeah I always make sure I package it well to protect it
I would personally advise paying a bit extra to get a signed for and tracked postage that has insurance as well. Doesn't cost that much extra.
Just keep an eye on how long it will take to get there. Like packages may not go far on a Sunday

Be careful when you send it off, don't use the return label that comes with the new phone, that one is only if you want to return the new phone if you are not happy with it. Usually you get a return pack via the post or included in the box with your new phone.

Thank you for the reminder 😅 I would have probably done that mistake if not for your caution

I'm a little confused now, I thought we sent it within 7 days of receiving the new phone in the packaging samsung send us?

 

Step 3 = Hand over your old device (Mobile Devices Only)

Back up your files and photos, perform a factory reset, remove any SIM and microSD cards, and then send us your old device within 7 days, using the freepost packaging we provide.

 

Is that not the case?
