Can I return my Phone?

DOA or Buyer’s Remorse

You can return any undamaged Phone if deemed “Dead on Arrival” (DOA) or due to Buyer’s Remorse within 15 days from the date you received the Phone.
The Phone must be returned in its original condition along with any original packaging, manuals, accessories, free items and any other components accompanying the Phone.

Determining if phone is DOA

If we are unable to resolve the issue over the phone, and for you to return the Phone, you must request a Return Merchandise Authorization number and a pre-printed waybill that will be given to you during the call. IF YOU RETURN THE PRODUCTS WITHOUT AN AUTHORIZED RETURN MATERIAL AUTHORIZATION NUMBER AND/OR THE PRE-PRINTED WAYBILL, NEITHER TECH DATA NOR SAMSUNG WILL ISSUE A CREDIT FOR THE RETURNED PHONE.

More rigorous hands on testing will be performed to validate whether or not it is DOA once your Phone is returned to Tech Data. If the Phone is found not to be defective (based on the reason you provided with the return request), your Phone will be returned to you and no credit or refund will be issued. “No fault found” returns do not qualify for Buyer’s Remorse returns. If the Phone is deemed DOA, we will then issue you a credit upon receipt of the Phone.

Provided that the Phone is returned in accordance with the terms of this section and is deemed DOA after the inspection set out above, you will receive a full refund of the purchase price paid for the Phone, including any taxes paid, in accordance with Tech Data’s Returns Policy and subject to applicable provincial law. The refund due to you will be processed within 3 to 7 business days based on the original payment method.

You will receive your unlock code in your shipping confirmation email.
