Warranty is an important issue to consider when buying electronic products, especially when purchasing online. We aim to clearly outline the warranty terms and procedures below, so buyers can easily know what to do if a warranty issue arises.
To ensure you are able to fulfil the requirements of the warranty provider, it is recommended that you retain all packaging and accessories for a minimum of 30 days and your proof of purchase documentation (eg invoice).
As this website advertises products from various sellers, please take note of the differing terms and procedures of each seller.
Seller: MyMobile Pty Ltd (Australia)
All items sold and supplied by MyMobile Pty Ltd (AUS) include manufacturer warranty. The duration, terms and conditions of this warranty is as specified by the manufacturer. Warranty is not provided by the seller. For full details, please contact the manufacturer's customer service.
Some manufacturers offer an Early Life Failure (E.L.F) Replacement Policy on their products if they fail within a certain timeframe after purchase. This is usually 14 or 30 days. If your item develops a fault within this E.L.F period, please complete and submit an ELF/DOA Replacement RMA immediately.
If your item develops a fault outside the E.L.F period but within the warranty period, please contact the manufacturer's customer service directly and they will advise of the nearest service centre for repair. Items should not be returned to the seller as we are not authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer.
Seller: MyMobile HK (Hong Kong)
MyMobile HK as the seller provides the warranty on all their products, as the majority of electronics manufacturers do not offer an international warranty. To assist Australian customers, MyMobile HK have enlisted the services of the Brisbane based MyMobile Group repair centre to perform warranty repairs, rather than the need for customers to return products back to their Hong Kong office.
