Warranty claim

I am 99.9% sure that I know the answer. Anyway, my wife's SGS3 has a malfunctioning mUSB port. However, the glass overlay on her screen is cracked. She is ineligible for a warranty claim due to the physical damage, correct?

Re: Warranty claim

Hi egloskerry, 

 

You are correct that the she would be ineligable for a warrany claim. However insurance will cover it. Also if you don't have insurance and have a device support center near you, they may provide an out of warranty replacement. You would have to visit the location for pricing and options.

Apple Repair will replace it for a fee, at least they will for newer iphones.

For basic damage, it's often cheaper than insurance.

Keep in mind that the OP is talking about a Samsung Galaxy S III. In this case, insurance would probably be the best option.

Re: Warranty claim

When I shipped L920 back to At&t via USPS it got broke in the process, but guess who was to blame, yeah they blamed me and not their ship partner. They send you a box whith no packing peanuts just a single bubble envelope, and with the screen size, phone size and weight of todays phones a simple envelope won't work being tossed around in a box of that size(trust me I use to work at Fedex)

/Almost forgot the envelope in not the sealable kind.
