What is not covered?
Our warranty period IS NOT an insurance police and if we find any fault that is a result of an accident, water damage or any misues then the warranty will be void and we will send the device back to you. Please note that batteries are only covered under a 90 day warranty due to the nature of them as batteries can be drained by poor quality charging accessories and many partial charges.
We do not cover defects and/or damage resulting from:
- Normal wear and tear of the equipment or otherwise due to the normal ageing of the equipment, including battery deterioration.

- Misuse, abuse, negligence or an accident howsoever caused.
- Improper testing, operation, maintenance, installation, or any alteration or modification of the product.
- This warranty will not be available: a) if the serial number or warranty seal on the product is illegible, has been defaced or removed; or, b) without any proof of purchase.
- We do not cover any phones for water damage; this includes phones which were rated as waterproof/water resistant when new. This is due to the rubber seals/waterproofing degrading over time and as a result we cannot guarantee that a second-hand phone’s seal will still be intact.

Any attempt to repair the phone except agreed with us before hand will also void the warranty period.

All faults must be reported as soon as they are discovered as continued usage of the phone can lead to more damage. If we find it is a long term fault this can also void the warranty if not reported in a timely manner.
