Default How do I check if my phone under warranty?

Hello,

Anybody knows how can I check if phone is under warranty or not? I'm on company sponsored account so I don't have access to online tool, all I have in my possesion is phone itself. Is there any tool or something which based on IMEI of the phone will find this information?

Thanks,
G

The phone has a 1 year factory/samsung warranty for sure and phone isn't a year old yet so you have that at least...

hey, im in the same situation as you, i have an account with a Corporate and didn't get the phone from Telus but from a dealership that is in Montreal, and i was wondering the same thing. You have one (1) warranty on the phone and you can check the status on Samsung site and register your phone to see the Warranty status.

hope this helps... i'm unfortunately without my phone since i HARD BRICK it. lol and its now at Samsung at this moment and will know soon if they fix it or not. lol

May sound too simple, but call your provider and ask.

Phones are not even a two months old! Of course the are still under warranty. Unless you have water damage... then you dont have warranty... ....... ............................... ... k bai.

I called ATT to ask about warranty and was told that they have no responsibity because I am using my phone on Straight Talk. Samsung has the one year warranty I guess.
If I was using it on ATT they I guess they would take care of it?

Then call Samsung and ask. Or register your phone on Samsung website.

Pretty much. One of the downsides of using a prepaid service is having to go through the manufacturer, or having to buy a 3rd party warranty like Squaretrade. On the other hand, you're paying $45/month, so no complaining allowed.
