Liability:

If your device is damaged beyond economical repair through our negligence or willful misconduct, our liability will be limited to the cost of providing a replacement with a product that is the same or similar to your device. You have sole responsibility for any data stored on your device and we accept no liability for loss or corruption of such data howsoever caused. It is your responsibility to keep a record of any such data.

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.

When sending in your mobile phone or tablet device for screen repair or home button repair, Dropped It will not be held responsible if the Touch ID feature does not work after the repair is carried out.

Repair Process & Delays:

We aim to repair your device within 24-48 hours of receiving it. This is just an aim we target as a company, this is not a promise, as every repair varies in time and difficulty. Although 99.3% of all repairs get done on the same day, sometimes we encounter further issues that slow the repair down.

If for any reason your repair will take longer, you will be notified of the reason and the estimated completion date. Alternatively, you can check the repair tracker to see if there have been any new developments in relation to your repair.

If we need to order in new parts, the repair process may be delayed. We will keep you updated throughout the whole process.

Please be aware diagnostics may take longer than usual repairs as our trained technicians take the time to look at every element of the device and check for faulty parts.

Please be advised we cannot guarantee your device will be repaired after we diagnose the fault. 97% of devices that we diagnose are repaired.

With screen repairs on Samsung Devices there is always a chance of the LCD breaking due to the glue needed to bond the glass to the LCD. There is also a chance that the back may break.  In this case an additional $20 will be charged for a new back and may hold up the repair.

Liquid Damage repairs can take up to 7 – 14 days.

Any Motherboard related repairs can take up to 7 – 14 days.

Any Software related repairs can take up to 7 – 14 days.

Orders which have multiple repairs or require additional repairs may take longer.

On a few iPad screen repairs occasionally fine grid lines may appear, the screen will work without any problems just light grid lines may seem apparent which will not affect the performance of the screen at all. We will be unable to refund or replace the screen based on this factor.
