Terms & Conditions
Most repairs (with the exception of software related, battery and water damaged devices) come with a 12 month warranty. Battery related repairs come with 3 months warranty. This excludes faults relating to physical or accidental damage or if the device is opened whilst in your possession. If the nature of the repair falls outside the terms of your warranty or guarantee, then you may incur a charge for the repair.
If you take your device to a third party after it has been repaired by Happyfones this will void the warranty on your device. This includes both repaired and purchased devices.
All software related repairs will not be covered by our warranty.
The warranty only covers the original repair. For example, if you pay for a screen repair and the screen becomes faulty, you will be covered with our 12 month warranty. If any additional faults occur that are not related to the original repair this will not be covered under warranty and will need to be paid for.
The warranty for refurbished phones and tablets sold by Happyfones differs depending on the device and only covers manufacturing defects. If the fault is not related to this or happens outside of the warranty period, an extra cost may occur. It does not cover physical or accidental damage.
With all refurbished devices sold by Happyfones, the battery will only be covered by a 3 month warranty.
If you purchase a refurbished mobile device from Happyfones and you accidentally damage the device this will void all warranty. If after this you purchase a repair from Happyfones, if applicable you will be covered under a new repair warranty.
If the device is damaged it shall not be covered under warranty.
If you pay to have it repaired, it still will not be covered by warranty due to any future faults that may occur.

When sending in a damaged device, our technicians will probably need to open up the device to either diagnose or repair it. This comes with an element of risk and may result in some minor damages to your device. We do everything possible to ensure this doesn't happen, however, if it does happen and the damages are significant we will offer a replacement or repair.
We will not be responsible for any damage or fault caused by a previous repair.

Water Proof Repairs:
Mobile devices that are sold as being waterproof are originally sealed in the manufacturer’s factory with special machines and special liquid proof adhesives.
When we carry out a repair on a waterproof device that involves opening and closing the device we cannot guarantee that your device will be 100% waterproof after the repair process has been completed. We replace all adhesives required but only the manufacturers of the device have access to the specialised equipment required.
Our trained technicians always test the device on arrival and before it is dispatched. We test many different aspects of the device, including the buttons, vibration, sound, cameras, charging port, Wifi, speakers, signal, front screen, LCD display, power settings and much more, to ensure we don't miss any faults and provide the best service possible.

Pin Locks and passwords must be removed before you send your device to us.
