  • If you're returning one device:
    • If you're using your original box, cover the existing labels and stickers.
    • For battery/power station devices like portable power packs, your email will include a special cargo label that must be printed in color and attached to the outside of the box. 
    • T-Mobile return shipping labels can only be used for the intended purpose of returning items covered by the return policy. 
    • If non-T-Mobile items are sent to us in error, please call Customer Care within 60 days. After that, unclaimed items may be considered abandoned and we'll dispose of them. 

  • If you're returning multiple devices:
    • Print the cargo/hazardous material label in color if your box doesn’t already have this label. 
    • Important: Do not shrink or scale the color image when printing.
