  • Currently, we fully analyze devices sent in for RMA, and send customers a comprehensive list of available repairs, free and paid, in our messaging. We understand that this can cause confusion when a customer has only ordered a specific repair. We will no longer automatically offer repair quotes for cosmetic defects unless they affect the functionality of the device or are specifically requested by the customer.
  • We will update our automated emailing system functionality for better clarity, so our customers always know what free repairs will be offered, and the terms and conditions associated with the device in question.
