We accept new or used 4G smartphones, laptops and/or tablets. For used devices, they should be in good working condition. Here are the guidelines:
- The donated device must be in a complete set i.e. comes with the battery and charger.
- Please ensure that the screen is in good condition and not cracked.
- Before handing over the device that you wish to donate, we recommend you:
- Do a full reset of the device to its default factory settings (e.g. no password or pin number or any cloud-based protection such as iCloud).
- Log out from all your accounts (Android or iOS)
- Disable any ‘find my device’ functionality such as Find My iPhone. If ‘Find my device’ is not disabled, we will not be able to process or donate your device
Is there a minimum or maximum number of the number of devices I can donate?
There is no minimum or maximum number of devices that you can donate.
What happens to the devices after they’ve been collected by the respective telcos?
Upon collecting the devices, Maxis will arrange to refurbish the devices where needed, and then delivered directly to families in the B40 segment, through an appointed NGO, or to various channels including selected Pusat Internet Komuniti (PIK) nationwide.
Some of the devices delivered to the PIK will also be made available for loan for the community. The respective PIKs will be managing the distribution of these devices, including locations and the number of devices to be loaned out.
Any donated device that cannot be used (eg. not in working order due to damage or software incompatibility) will be responsibly recycled though our existing eWaste programme in collaboration with MCMC.
Can the donated device be returned?
All donated devices are non-returnable. By donating your device, you agree that the device will be contributed towards the #MYBaikHati initiative. This agreement will be established during the registration at the respective telco centres when dropping off the devices.
Do you accept devices with any other accessories?
Please take extra care to remove any SIM cards or memory cards and other accessories before donating your devices, as we will not be accepting these.
What if my old data or SIM card is still in the donated device after I have dropped off my device(s)?
Please take extra care to ensure that you have deleted any data stored on your device before donating it, including removing any SIM card or memory card. If you do not do this, or if for some reason your personal information remains on a donated device, please be rest assured that all data from the devices be wiped out.
We are however unable to return any SIM cards or memory cards sent to us so these will be responsibly discarded.
Do I get anything in return for donating?
We do not provide any reward for donation , however your kind action is much appreciated in supporting the cause to support digital learning needs for B40 families.
How long will this campaign run for?
The campaign will run for 12 months starting 18 March.
