Think twice before buying a mobile phone or wireless device that doesn’t come with an ICASA approved sticker.
Every gadget that transmits a wireless signal must be certified by the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) before it can be legally imported and sold within South Africa.
This is because poor quality wireless devices that do not meet the required specifications to transmit within South Africa can interfere with local airwaves and broadcast systems.
This requirement protects South African retailers and consumers from poor quality imports and helps to maintain the overall quality of South African mobile communication.
All BigPhone mobile products carry approved ICASA certification. It’s part of our commitment to bring you only the highest quality products that are completely in line with South Africa’s communication laws.
To check the ICASA certification on your phone or mobile device, carefully remove the back cover and look for the ICASA certification sticker. It should be somewhere on the phone’s inner body or behind the battery with the word “APPROVED” stamped on it.
