How long is the warranty on my repaired device?

Repairs now come with a Lifetime Guarantee on parts and labour but will not cover any physical damage or third party tampering after it has been returned to you. Warranty on service work is immediately void if there is liquid damaged prior to or post repair.

What if a different part of my repaired device breaks?

Warranty claims for service work cover the parts/labour provided in that service and do not cover any other component or item not included on the receipt of payment.
