We’ll discuss returns options with you so you can post your item back to us. You’ll need to supply packaging and postage for any returns. This won't affect your 30-day return period, as you've already let us know.

Put everything that came with your order (including any chargers, headphones and the box itself) into an envelope, pack and seal it carefully, and take it to a Post Office. Once the item’s arrived with us and we’ve checked it we'll give you a refund.

If an item develops a fault within 30 days of purchase, we’ll simply exchange it for a brand new one under our returns policy (this doesn’t include damage you’ve inflicted). Or you can return the item and get a full refund.

From day 31, we’ll need to check and test the item for you – please call us on 02890 604444 from any other UK landline or mobile (standard call charges apply)

If we confirm a fault, we’ll repair the item and, if it’s covered by the manufacturer’s warranty, there won’t be a charge.

Please note that damage to a item isn’t covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. If it’s damaged rather than faulty, we’ll let you know how much the repair will cost.

Terms & Conditions for repairs to devices in store

Quotation: The quotation is an estimate based on the information you have provided. It is possible that the price of the repair may be higher than estimated; on these occasions you will be contacted by phone or email to authorise a new repair quotation.

Minimum Charge: All repairs carry a ‘minimum charge’. All repairs carry a repair deposit charge. This covers the engineer's time and any parts used in an attempt to repair the device. After inspection, the minimum charger will become due if the phone is BER (Beyond Economical Repair), i.e. cheaper to replace than fix; we provide a new repair quotation and you refuse this quotation or the phone is 'Barred'. This charge is non-refundable in any instance.

Turnaround Time: Repairs usually take 3 to 5 working days estimated. At busy times, including bank holidays and Christmas etc. it may take slightly longer. 

Liquid Damage Repairs: Liquid damage repairs can be very temperamental and carried out on 'best endeavours' basis. On some occasions the original fault can reappear after the unit has be repaired and sometimes faults can get even worse after a period of time. Uberfone cannot be held accountable in these instances and we do not recommend the continuous use of the device.

Collection: Once your repair has been completed and you have been notified, you must collect your device within 28 days.  If a repair has not been paid in full, we reserve the right to sell your device to recover our costs.

User data and information: We request that you take a back-­up of your data/information before any repairs are carried out, including ringtones, photos, videos, contacts, emails, music etc. We will always do our best to preserve data but we cannot be responsible if these are lost during the repair process.

Warranty: All hardware repairs carried out by Uberfone have a six ­month warranty from the original date of the repair. Your warranty will not cover you for accidental damage or liquid damage in any instance. This includes any damage to the screen or phone in general from it being dropped or knocked against anything. Also general wear and tear is not covered, so if you keep the phone in your pocket or bag with keys or change, you may consider getting a case or cover for extra protection. If a device returns to Uberfone and the security stickers have been removed or tampered with, your device will not be covered under warranty, this includes any other third party repair shops opening devices repaired by Uberfone within your six month warranty period. Uberfone does not give any warranty with software repairs. Any device that is returned to Uberfone after two weeks from the initial repair date may be sent to the Uberfone head office for warranty inspection. 

Uberfone will not accept liability for any other unrelated faults after the phone has been repaired.
