If you find that your device has manufacturing damages less than one year after purchase, you can have it replaced free of charge. If it has been over 15 days since you purchased it, it will be replaced with a Certified Like-New Replacement.
If your phone is broken but you are not sure of your eligibility to get a replacement, you may contact the customer support team for clarification.
More than One Year Since Purchase
You may get a replacement of your phone even if it has been more than one year since you purchased your phone. The damage has to be due to mechanical problems. You need to have the Total Mobile Protection, Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device, Extended Warranty, or Total Equipment Coverage.
You will get a replacement that is of a similar make and model as your broken phone. The features and color may not necessarily be the same.
Reporting a Lost Phone
