Significant damage to the phone includes any of the following: missing buttons, missing battery cover, cracked screen, excessively scratched screen, cracked casing, improper functioning, obvious misuse, water damage.

All new Smart Phones come with a plastic casing for the body free of charge. It is highly recommend the plastic casing is not removed to ensure a full deposit is returned.

5. International Calling: To be sure customers do not face exorbitant long distance charges and to help customers keep their phone bills more manageable, calling internationally directly from TAS phones is restricted. In order to call internationally the CUSTOMER will need to use a phone card or calling code. Both offer far discounted rates for calling internationally and are simple to use. International phone cards can be purchased at various convenience stores in Korea or at www.TheArrivalStore.com. International calling rates may vary according to the calling card used.

6. Deposit: TAS requires a refundable deposit $275 USD (refundable) + 3% payment processing charge which covers credit card or PayPal charges (non-refundable) from all TAS Simple Phone subscribers. The total charged will be $283.00 of which $275 will be returned. The deposit is to be paid prior to phone activation.
The $275 deposit is returned after the service contract has been completed, the phone has been returned to TAS, and phone damage has been assessed. If applicable, the deposit will be used to (1) pay any outstanding balance or bill on the account and/or (2) cover the cost of any damage or missing accessories. The remainder is returned to the customer, via PayPal or another payment method arranged.

TAS will retain the customer’s credit card information to be used in the instance that the phone contract is canceled within the 9 month contract, the phone is not returned, customer refuses to pay any outstanding balances, or in the appropriate situation as determined by TAS.

The deposit will not be returned if the phone is lost, stolen, or not returned to TAS.

CUSTOMERS will not earn any interest on security deposits or other payments held by TAS.

While TAS understands that all phones are subject to normal wear and tear, excessive damage to a phone will result in the loss of some or all of the deposit. TAS provides plastic cell phone covers and screen protectors free of charge for most phone models to help you care for your phone. To ensure that you receive a full refund on your deposit, TAS highly recommends using the plastic cover and screen protector.

Examples of excessive damage that will result in partial or complete loss of deposit: missing buttons, missing extra battery or battery cover, cracked screen, excessively scratched screen, water damage, improper functioning, obvious misuse, cracked plastic casing.

If the customer completes two years of service with TAS, terminates their contract, and all outstanding balances have been paid in full the customer will be able to keep their TAS phone and the deposit will be returned regardless of damages to the phone.

The service may fail or be interrupted for reasons including, but not limited to, environmental conditions, technical limitations, defects or failures, limitations of the systems of other telecommunications companies, emergency or public safety requirements, or causes beyond TAS' reasonable control. To the fullest extent permitted by law, TAS disclaims all warranties and conditions (express, implied or statutory) relating to the phone service and any phone equipment.

9. Limitation of Liability: To the fullest extent permitted by law, TAS will not be liable to the CUSTOMER or any other person for any damages (direct, indirect, consequential or other, including physical injury, death or damage to property or premises), expenses, loss of profits, loss of earnings, loss of business opportunities, loss of data, or other similar loss, arising out of or in connection with the provision, use or failure of the service, or any equipment used with the service, whether caused by negligence or otherwise, and whether claimed in contract, tort or otherwise. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the liability of TAS for damages caused by negligence on the part of TAS in the provision of mandatory emergency services, except in cases where such negligence results in physical injury, death or damage to your property or premises, or where such damages are caused by the deliberate fault, gross negligence or anti-competitive behavior of TAS, is limited to $20 USD. TAS shall not be responsible for (a) libel, slander, defamation or the infringement of copyright arising from material or messages recorded on the equipment of TAS; (b) damages arising out of CUSTOMER’s act, default, neglect or omission in the use or operation of equipment activated by TAS; (c) damages arising out of the transmission of material or messages on the CUSTOMER’s behalf, which is in any way unlawful.

10. Indemnity: the CUSTOMER will indemnify TAS from all losses, expenses and all manner of actions, claims and judgments sustained by or made against TAS in connection with the CUSTOMER’s use or misuse of the service, any equipment used with the service or violation of these service terms.

11. Phone Number: Regardless of any rights the CUSTOMER may have under applicable laws and regulations, including any right to port a number to another carrier, the CUSTOMER does not own or have any property rights in any phone number assigned by TAS to the CUSTOMER. TAS may, on at least thirty (30) days notice, change any such numbers without liability. The customer is not able to port the phone number to another service or carrier without the expressed consent of TAS.

12. Termination/Suspension of service:

A) Termination of service within the first 7 days: If the Smart Phone is returned within 7 days of delivery and the phone is in “like new condition” or condition equivalent to which it was when delivered, the purchase price of the Smart Phone and phone deposit will be returned, less the following charges:

-non-refundable registration fee: 30,000 KRW

-non-refundable activation fee: 20,000 KRW

-restocking fee: 10,000 KRW

-any usage charges on the phone, including but not limited to: percentage of base fee for duration line is  

 opened, outbound calling, internet, TV, text messaging, and any other applicable charges related to use. A TAS  

 representative will inform the CUSTOMER of this amount via email.

B) Termination after 7 days of delivery: TAS Phone Service requires the minimum commitment of 9 months for Smart Phones. Unless otherwise agreed, the CUSTOMER may terminate their service at any time after 9 months by providing TAS with thirty (30) days notice.

If the CUSTOMER terminates their service before 9 months, TAS has the right to

-withhold at least 50% of the CUSTOMER’s initial deposit. 

-assess any additional outstanding fees for the balance on the customer’s contract as determined by TAS (additional fees can average 500,000 KRW or more).

-charge the customer’s credit card the determined outstanding balance.

-retain the customer’s deposit.

For example: if a customer decides to cancel the contract 5 months into the contract and does not return the phone, that customer will be responsible for the outstanding balance of the contract, plus the value of the phone. This fee can average 500,000 KRW or more. Since all 9 month phones are issued by TAS’s corporation, phones are property of TAS. If phones are lost, stolen, or not returned, TAS must fill out legal paperwork on behalf of the customers as the case may be. This process can consume many hours and be quite costly if TAS’s expenses are not properly covered.

We care deeply about our customers. We also expect the highest level of responsibility and integrity from our customers, and ask them to recognize that a smart phone with a 9-month contract is not a right, but a privilege that TAS seeks to maintain on our customers' behalf.

TAS may suspend or terminate the service and this agreement at any time, without any notice or liability if: the CUSTOMER fails to pay any amount when due (including any required deposit); TAS, in its sole discretion, considers the CUSTOMER an unacceptable credit risk and if the CUSTOMER fails to provide a security deposit acceptable to TAS; the CUSTOMER is in default under these service terms or any other agreement with TAS, a TAS dealer or any assignee; or if TAS reasonably apprehends the occurrence of any such events. If service is terminated for any reason, the CUSTOMER will remain liable for all accrued fees and charges.  TAS will suspend the CUSTOMER’s phone usage if their bill has not been paid within twenty (20) days of the given due date. The CUSTOMER can resume usage of phone service when all payments have been made. These payments include: original bill, late fees (5,000 KRW) and fee incurred to activate the phone again (20,000 KRW).

13. Confidentiality and Privacy: Unless the CUSTOMER provides express consent or disclosure is pursuant to a legal power, all information kept by TAS in respect of the service regarding the CUSTOMER, other than name and address, is confidential and may not be disclosed by TAS to anyone other than: the CUSTOMER or a person who in the reasonable judgment of TAS is seeking the information as your agent; another telecommunications company or a person providing services to TAS or another telecommunications company, but only if the information is to be used for the establishment of, or the efficient and cost effective provision of, telecommunications service and the disclosure is made on a confidential basis with the information to be used only for that purpose; a directory or listing service company for the purpose of listing CUSTOMER name, address and phone number if the CUSTOMER consents and if that company agrees to use the information only for that purpose; an third party agent or company engaged by TAS to evaluate your credit or collect outstanding balances owed to TAS by the CUSTOMER, if the agent requires the information and agrees to use the information only for that purpose; a public authority or its agent if TAS reasonably believes that there is imminent danger to life or property that could be avoided or minimized by disclosure of the information; a law enforcement agency if TAS reasonably believes that the CUSTOMER or anyone using the equipment is engaged in fraudulent or unlawful activities.
