Warranties on your personal devices are nothing new. What can be a little daunting is finding out when a warranty from the manufacturing company runs out or does not cover damages. Some devices void the warranty as soon as it changes ownership. There are a lot of factors that can have you sitting with your Tablet or smartphone and a broken screen, with no warranty to help pay for repairs.

The good news is, if you find yourself a responsible repair service, they will usually offer warranties on their own. The life of a repair company is in making sure the service they provide is accurate, complete, fast, and lasts. And with that in mind, they provide limited warranties to what parts they replace or services they provide to their customers.

Manufacturer Warranty

If your device is still covered under warranty with the manufacturer, you are going to want to reach out to them first. Unfortunately, working with the bigger organizations can be a bit of a hassle. Long wait times are not uncommon for services that need you to send in your device. But, if you paid for the warranty, definitely see what is covered. While you have them on the phone, verify if they allow you to use a closer to home option like a repair shop in town. Sadly, if you get your tablet or smartphone serviced by someone else, it might void what warranty you have with the manufacturer. Each company is different, so ask questions or even ask for a copy of the warranty policy.
