FAQ:


My phone doesn’t have Geek Squad Protection. Can you still work on it?

Sure! Beyond fulfilling Geek Squad Protection claims and Samsung manufacturer’s warranty claims we can also perform cash on delviery work for uncovered phones.


Does my manufacturer’s warranty cover a cracked screen?
Samsung does not cover accidental damage from handling, so you would be looking at a charge to get your screen repaired. The same is true of the back glass. 

 

After my repair, will my phone retain its water resistance rating?
Yes. Because we use real Samsung parts, a repaired phone will have the same water resistance rating as a new phone. 


How long will the repair take?
Usually we’re able to get your repair done the same day as you check it in assuming all parts needed are in stock, so your time without your phone should be minimal. You’ll want to make sure that you check your phone in before 6:00 PM local time to give the Agent working on your phone time to finish the repairs.


I spilled water on my phone. Can you fix that?

We cannot repair liquid damage in store. If you have a Geek Squad Protection plan on your phone, check in with out Geek Squad Service Request page at this link to see if your phone qualifies for a replacement by mail.


What if my phone has more problems after I get it repaired?
Because our Agents are Samsung Authorized, and we use only original Samsung parts, any hardware repair we perform will come with a 90-day Samsung warranty.

 

Can you perform work on a Galaxy Note 7?

We are unable to service the Galaxy Note 7 devices, as they have been recalled by Samsung. You may receive a replacement or refund for the Galaxy Note 7 at your place of purchase or Samsung toll-free at (844) 365-6197 any time, or go online at http://www.samsung.com. For more information on the Note 7 recall, please visit this link.


Can you repair a phone that wasn't bought at Best Buy?
In most cases, yes. At this time, however, we are unable to perform repairs on phones from outside of the United States. To see if your phone qualifies for a repair, it is best to check your model number. If it ends in A, V, T, P or U (U1 for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+), we should be able to work on it.

 

My phone won't even turn on. Can you help?

We may be able to, but there are some troubleshooting steps you should try before making the trip to see us. First, you'll want to try a different charger than you are currently using. Leave it plugged in for at least a half hour. While still plugged in, try holding the power button down for a few seconds to turn it on. If that doesn't work, it's time to make a reservation to visit the Geek Squad. Even if we can't perform a repair, the phone may qualify for Express Replacement.

 

I have Geek Squad Protection, but I dn't live near any of the participating stores. Can you still help me with my phone?

 

While we can only perform repairs in one of our Samsung Authorized Repair locations. We can, however, help you swap your phone out through our Express replacement program. Check out this article for further details on that program.
