How Much Time Will It Take To Repair My Mobile Phone?

Typically, devices are analysed and directed for repair straightaway and most repairs are carried out within 24-48 hours of receipt.

However, some cases such as liquid damage repair service, software repairs and repairs associated with motherboard may take more time. Further, depending on the complexity of the repair or availability of required parts, delays may occur.

In any case, we will keep you completely informed about the progress of the repair. Also, you can track your order anytime here.
