You should submit a document indicating the IIN. 

How is the evaluation carried out?

To determine the amount of the certificate, the handed over device is graded, its external and technical condition as well as its average cost on the market are taken into account. More details can be obtained from consultants in the store.

If the amount of the certificate exceeds the maximum prepayment amount for the contract, will the difference be refunded to me?

No. The remaining amount will be credited to the first monthly payment for the Contract Phone service. If the amount of the certificate exceeds the total amount of prepayment and monthly payment, the balance will be credited to the phone number balance to which the Contract Phone service will be connected.

What are the requirements for the handed over device?

The device must be owned by the customer and should not be in dispute, under distrainment, in pledge, etc. When you hand over the device, you should unlock it, erase your data and linked accounts, and then reset to factory settings. Our consultants will help.

What affects the estimated cost of the handed over device?

Device model, its external condition, technical (internal) condition, availability of factory package and complete accessories (charger and USB cable).

Do I need to have a box, phone accessories with me?

No. However, the presence/absence of the kit will affect the estimated cost.

How long does it take to evaluate?

It takes up to 10 minutes. The evaluation time depends on the condition of the device being handed over.

Do I have to pay for evaluation of the device within the Trade-In service?

The device is evaluated free of charge.

Can I trade in phones from other brands - Huawei, Oppo, Xiaomi, etc.?


How many devices can I hand over?

You can hand over one device only. One handed over device = One certificate = one purchase.

How many certificates can I use when buying a new smartphone?

When buying a new smartphone, you can use only one certificate.

Can I get 1 certificate instead of several handed over devices?

No. You get one certificate for one handed over device.

Who can use the certificate? Can I make a present of the certificate?

The certificate is issued in somebody's name. Only the person who handed over the device and received the certificate can use it.

What devices can I buy using the certificate?

The certificate can be used to buy any gadget available as part of the Contract Phone promotion.

Can I get money for the certificate?

No. The certificate cannot be cashed.

Can I pay 100% of the purchase price with the certificate?

No. The certificate can be used only for the purchase of the device under the Contract Phone promotion, the purchase for the full price with the certificate is not provided for.

Can the certificate be used only in Kcell/activ stores?

Yes. The certificate will not be valid in other stores selling the Apple and Samsung devices. The certificate can be used only in those Kcell/activ stores where the Trade-In service is available.

Can the certificate be used to purchase the device at full price?

No. The certificate can be used only to purchase a device under the Contract Phone promotion.

How will the certificate be used to purchase the device under the contract?

First of all, the amount of the certificate will be used as a prepayment (the maximum possible one, based on the amount of the certificate and the cost of the desired device), this will reduce the total value of the contract, and as a result, the amount of the monthly payment will also be reduced. If the amount of the certificate is less than the amount of the minimum prepayment, then it will be used to cover the first monthly payment for the selected device under the Contract Phone service.
