Changing the delivery address

Cancelling your SIM card, monthly plan or prepaid card

New customer at BASE? Then you will receive your new BASE SIM card for your monthly plan or prepaid card in your letterbox within a few days. As long as you do not activate/use it, we do not charge anything for this SIM card.

Changing your monthly plan or prepaid card

Do you want to change your choice after placing your order? First, activate your SIM card as soon as you receive it. Once your SIM card is active, you can choose a different monthly plan or prepaid tariff on My BASE

Please note: Did you choose a monthly plan in combination with a smartphone? Then you must first cancel/refuse your smartphone.

Cancelling/returning your handset

After you place your order you have 14 days to change your mind by making use of your right of withdrawal. Specifically, you may return your unused smartphone in its original packaging and with all the accessories.

Alternatively, you can refuse the package when the courier delivers it. We will simply refund the amount.

Monthly plan or prepaid card

We send your SIM card by post the next working day. You will receive it in your letterbox.

Smartphone with monthly plan

After you place your order, you will receive an email from PostNL (the courier service) containing a Track & Trace link for your parcel. You can use the link to see exactly where your order is.

Not at home? Then the courier will take your parcel to the nearest collection point and leave you the necessary details. Then you have 7 days to pick up your parcel. After that, your order will be returned to BASE automatically.

Order not delivered?

Does the Track & Trace say the package been delivered, but you did not receive anything? Contact us and be sure to have your order number handy. You will find it in the emails you received after placing your order.
