Phone Return and Repair Checklist

Prior to bringing your phone to a TELUS Product Care Centre for assessment, please ensure you do the following:
  • Visit the troubleshooting section for answers to common handset issues.

  • Locate your original proof of purchase.

  • Backup all your phone’s contacts including but not limited to: address book, pictures, videos, ringtones, and music.

How to Determine if Your Phone is Under Manufacturer’s Warranty

  • If you purchased a brand new TELUS phone, it is eligible under manufacturer’s warranty for 12 months from the purchase date.
  • If your device was repaired while under warranty, then it will be covered by a 90 day warranty from the day it was repaired or a 1 year warranty from the original purchase date (with receipt), whichever is longer.

  • If you have purchased a refurbished TELUS phone, it will be eligible under the manufacturer’s warranty for 90 days.

The manufacturer’s warranty doesn’t cover normal device wear and tear.

Dropped devices, exposure to moisture and/or extreme temperatures, modifications to software or hardware not authorized by the manufacturer and internal board damage would deem your phone unrepairable and void your manufacturer’s warranty.

Please note that TELUS does not offer support for phones that were not purchased through TELUS or an authorized TELUS dealer.


Caring for Your Phone

Your phone is more than just a phone. It’s also a mini computer with many sensitive electronic components. With replacement costs upward of $500 for certain models, caring for this increasingly vital part of your life is more important than ever. We strongly recommend carrying your phone in a protective case to prevent damage to key contacts, pictures, music, ring tones and emails stored on it.

Avoid Moisture

Liquid or water damage is the most common hardware issue not covered by warranty. A handset can be water damaged even if it wasn’t immersed in water.

Some common examples of liquid damage are:
  • Exposure to excess humidity, steam or splashing of water.

  • Rain, fog or mist droplets.

  • Leaving the handset on moist surfaces like a counter top or wet car floor.

  • Body perspiration (causing the circuit board to rust).

  • Condensation caused by leaving the phone in the bathroom while taking a shower.

Water damage can lead to corrosion that can affect the handset immediately, or even several days, weeks or months after exposure to water. It is not covered under your warranty, so take every precaution to avoid it. Only authorized TELUS technicians can properly assess moisture damage; opening your phone yourself can void your warranty.
