The customer is responsible for all data stored on their devices, PLEASE BACKUP YOUR DATA prior to sending device for repair. An assessment fee of $49 incl. gst will be payable if the device is found either not covered by warranty, or excluded from warranty due to user error.
Unless otherwise specified, all repairs carry a 3 months M/D parts warranty from the date of collection. Where the product has a balance of a new warranty remaining, the greater of 1 month or the balance of the new warranty applies. Service warranty on the repair is performed to address the specific fault stated. Any previously undiagnosed or subsequent faults are not covered by the warranty, and will be handled as separate repairs. We will meet all obligations under the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993.
Mobile Phone Unlocking means that iFix will unlock the phone to be used in New Zealand. The phone will thereafter be able to take a New Zealand sim card and make and receive calls in New Zealand.
This service does not cover any existing faults on the phone, known or otherwise, such as sending texts, charging function, internet access, multimedia service, and any other related phone functions.
Some phones may require a software upgrade or downgrade in order to perform the unlocking procedure. THIS CAN CAUSE THE LOSS OF DATA AND SETTINGS ON THE PHONE. The customer is hereby advised of this fact, and is solely responsible for backing up the contents of the phone. iFix, and any of the associated management and staff accepts no responsibility or liability related to data loss.
PHONE SECURITY OR PIN UNLOCK DISCLAIMER
All phone data and settings will be erased for this procedure. This is NOT REVERSIBLE. The customer is thereby advised to back up all data and settings before this procedure.
This procedure will allow access to normal phone functions. It does not cover any existing faults, known or unknown.
If the customer’s phone is found to be blacklisted (meaning the phone is reported as lost or stolen and subsequently barred on New Zealand mobile networks), the customer is still liable to pay the unlocking fee.
LIQUID DAMAGED DEVICE DISCLAIMER
There is NO WARRANTY on any liquid damaged repairs due to the nature of the repair. Even if the device appears to be working before the repair, there will be corrosion within the device, which can result in a short circuit while the device is being cleaned and flushed, or at any time thereafter. A short circuit will result in hardware or software failure, and resulting loss of data/settings and functionality. This is a common problem related to internal corrosion and not a procedure fault. Device manufacturers refuse to repair a liquid damaged device due to the nature of the repair. The Customer is hereby warned that there is a substantial failure rate. iFix nz accept no responsibility for this failure rate, and will only attempt a liquid damaged device repair upon the Customer understanding the risk of failure and agreeing to assume all risk. The inspection fee charged is non-refundable regardless of whether the device is repaired or not. This reflects the time investment by our technicians in attempting to repair the device. If the device can be repaired, the inspection fee will be deducted from the service charge. We reserve the right to requote as there is no telling which components need to be replaced before a thorough inspection, or due to the failure rate in this nature of repair. Parts that are replaced during the repair come with a 3 month manufacturer’s warranty only for manufacturer defects. This warranty does not cover improper use by the Customer. This warranty is also invalidated if the device is taken apart by an unauthorised service centre or other unauthorised persons.
TOUCH SCREEN/GLASS REPLACEMENT DISCLAIMER
When repairing the touch screen/glass on a device, there is a 5% chance that the LCD can be damaged. This will result in the need to replace the entire LCD which will cost significantly more. IFIX Nz will only attempt this type of repair if the customer understands and agrees to undertake the risk involved. We cannot perform the repair otherwise, as we are unable to accept any liability for damage to the LCD.
