Oh I see.

Have you paid the providers ?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
The phone has not been paid for past two months by person I have phone to use so I believe o will have to pay for that but would like to get phone back from other party

Sorry for the delay.

You can just demand the return of the phone within 7 days and if he does not return it report it to the police. The failure to return it turns a lawful loan into a theft as he has kept it too long.

As to the issue of the bill, you do have the option to sue them for the amount that was due although you would have to pay it first.

The small claims court is not expensive and he may just pay when he gtes the issued claim.

Hope this helps,

Can I clarify anything for you?
