Can you return an Asurion phone?

Yes, you can return an Asurion phone. Depending on your insurance policy and the reason for your return, you may be eligible for a full or partial refund of your monthly service fee. In order to return an Asurion phone, you must contact the customer service line at 1-800-584-3666 to initiate the return process.

Depending on the policy, you may first need to submit a claim form with documentation, such as proof of purchase, to the Asurion. Once the form is accepted, you will be given a return authorization number and instructions on how to send back the device.

If you have an Asurion protection plan, you may be eligible for a full or partial refund of your monthly protection plan fees. Once the device is received and processed, any applicable refunds will be processed.

How long do I have to return my Asurion phone?

You have 30 days to return your Asurion phone or submit a claim for it. To claim your phone, you will need to visit Asurion’s website and enter your information, including the serial number and IMEI of your device.

After your claim is processed, Asurion will send you a new phone within 1-3 business days. If you choose to return your phone instead of claiming it, you must ship the device back to Asurion within 30 days of receiving the replacement phone.

You must also include all of the device’s accessories and the original packaging in your return package. Asurion will provide you with the necessary shipping materials and instructions when you create your claim.

What happens if I don’t return my damaged phone to Asurion?

If you fail to return a damaged phone to Asurion, there will be a number of potential consequences. Depending on your specific circumstances, you may be subject to a fee, billed for the full replacement cost, have difficulty resolving any additional issues regarding the device, or incur additional terms or penalties as outlined in your service agreement.

Asurion may also report your account to the major credit bureaus, potentially damaging your credit and preventing you from taking advantage of other services. As such, it is highly recommended that you return or exchange your damaged phone to Asurion in a timely manner as soon as you receive your replacement device.

Can you return a phone if you have opened it?

Yes, you can return a phone if you have opened it. Many stores allow customers to return or exchange unwrapped, used, or opened items in the original packaging. The duration of time that a store will accept returns on opened items is typically shorter than for unopened items, so it is important to read the store’s return policy prior to making a purchase.

If the item was purchased online, then you should check the website’s return policy before buying. Generally, the customer must return the phone within the specified time frame in order to receive a refund.

Additionally, some stores may assess a fee or may not accept opened items for a return at all.

How many times can you claim on Asurion?

Asurion offers protection plans that allow customers to file up to four claims in a 12-month period. Depending on the specific plan you purchase, your four claims may need to be made within a brief period of time, such as 30 days.

Beyond the four claims, you may also be able to make one claim over a 12-month period if you purchase a higher-level protection plan. Although it is possible to make up to five claims within a year, it is important to remember that the protection plans are per item rather than per customer.

Therefore, if you purchase multiple items with protection plans from Asurion, you can make up to five claims since each item will be eligible for its own protection plan.

What does Asurion do with returned phones?

Asurion handles returned phones in several ways. First, when a phone is returned, it is inspected to determine if the phone is operational and if there is any physical damage. If the phone is not operational, it goes to a recycler who will ensure the device’s parts are recycled and disposed of properly.

If there is physical damage, the phone is usually recycled.

Once the phone has been reviewed and determined to be good quality and operational, Asurion tests the phone to make sure it functions as intended. If the phone does not meet specifications, it is designated as “refurbished” and sold in Asurion’s refurbished inventory.

This allows customers to purchase phones at lower rates if they aren’t looking for the latest model.

If the phone is tested and found to be in excellent condition, Asurion will place the device into its certified pre-owned inventory. This allows customers to buy a phone that has been tested and certified by Asurion, so they can be confident the phone is in working condition and up to manufacturer standards.

If the phone is still new, unopened, or unused, Asurion could then resell it in their store or place it in its new inventory. Asurion also occasionally donates new or refurbished devices to charities, schools, or organizations with a mission they support.

Can I keep extra money from insurance claim?

Yes, you can keep extra money from an insurance claim, though there are certain conditions that could potentially affect your eligibility. Typically, when filing an insurance claim, the estimated amount you will receive is based on the estimated cost of repair or replacement for the damaged property.

Depending on the specifics of your policy, any extra money you receive over the estimated amount is meant to remain your property and can be kept.

However, some policies dictate that in the event of a shortfall between the estimated cost of repair and the actual cost, the insurer will not pay for the difference and the remaining funds are due from the policyholder.

If your policy states such, you cannot use the extra funds to cover the extra costs of the repairs.

Additionally, if your policy only covers a certain amount, meaning that the total amount needed to cover the repair costs exceeds the policy’s limit, you will not likely be able to keep the extra funds unless it is explicitly stated in your contract.

Your insurance policy will generally determine your eligibility for the extra funds and how you can use them.

It is important to review your insurance policy carefully before submitting a claim to determine which scenarios will allow you to keep extra money from an insurance claim.

Will Asurion replace a dropped phone?

Yes, Asurion does offer replacement for dropped phones. Asurion is an insurance provider for many types of electronics, including cell phones. If you purchased a phone insurance plan from Asurion and your phone was damaged due to a drop, you can file a claim with them.

To file a claim, you’ll need to provide proof of purchase and a copy of the insurance policy. Asurion will then inspect the phone and assess the extent of the damage. Depending on the plan you purchased, they may offer to do a full phone replacement or provide you with a credit to purchase a new phone.

It’s important to note that if your phone was damaged due to water, Asurion may require additional documentation to verify that the phone was accidentally dropped in water and not submerged intentionally.

Is Asurion deductible refundable?

No, Asurion deductible refunds are not refundable. Asurion covers the cost of repair or replacement of any item, minus a deductible. Depending on your plan, the deductible amount may vary. The deductible is the portion of the repair or replacement cost that the customer is responsible for.

All deducibles are nonrefundable and must be paid before Asurion can process the repair or replacement. In order to prevent fraudulent activity, Asurion does not offer refunds for any deductibles paid.

However, if the repair or replacement is not successful, Asurion will cover the full cost of repair or replacement provided that the customer has paid their deductible.

Can I return something out of warranty?

Yes, you can return items out of warranty, but without a warranty, it will typically be handled on a case by case basis. In most cases, you will not be given a replacement or a refund for an item out of warranty, so you should weigh the cost and inconvenience of returning the item against the cost of buying a new one that does come with a warranty.

For example, if you find an item at a much lower price from a reputable retailer, it may be worth it to return the out of warranty item and purchase the new one with the warranty included. Ultimately, it’s up to the retailer whether they accept returns on products out of warranty.

Can warranties be returned?

Unfortunately, no, warranties cannot be returned. Warranties are usually offered by a manufacturer when you buy a product and they provide coverage for a limited amount of time and protection from any defects in the item.

This coverage can vary depending on the company, but typically covers repair or replacement of defective parts, as well as labor. Warranties are not refundable, as they are considered a contract between the consumer and the manufacturer, and refunding them would cancel the contract.

You are able to cancel your product within a certain period, usually the first 30 days or so, and then you may be eligible for a refund. However, once the manufacturer’s warranty period begins, you cannot receive a refund for it.

Can I cancel a claim Asurion?

Yes, you can cancel a claim with Asurion as long as it has not been processed or approved yet. You can contact their Customer Care team at 800. 584. 3666, or you can log in to your Asurion account and go to the claim history tab to see if the claim status is active.

If the claim is marked “active”, you can select the claim and cancel it from the drop-down menu. You may be asked to provide a reason for cancellation. If the claim is approved, unfortunately, it cannot be cancelled at this point, and you will have to follow the normal return process to receive a refund.

Is warranty a waste of money?

The answer to this question is subjective and ultimately depends on an individual’s unique needs and preferences. A warranty may not be seen as a “waste of money” for those who are risk-averse and want to ensure the repair or replacement of any item, should it become damaged or broken.

On the other hand, for those who are more comfortable with taking a risk, a warranty may not be considered necessary or worth it.

When deciding if a warranty is a good investment or a waste of money, one should also consider the total cost of the purchase and the cost of repairs/replacement, if needed. When a warranty is purchased, a potential customer would pay a fee (along with the cost of purchase) that covers the repairs and/or replacement of the item in the event of damage.

In certain instances, this fee may be more than the cost of repair/replacement and might be regarded as an unnecessary expense.

Ultimately, it is up to the individual to determine if a warranty is a worth the cost or a waste of money. If a person values peace of mind when considering large purchases, then the cost of a warranty could be viewed as a worthwhile investment.

In what circumstances can you insist on a refund?

You can insist on a refund in any circumstance where you feel that you have not gotten what you paid for. This could include when the product or service is not as described or if it is damaged or defective.

You may also be entitled to a refund if a store’s return policy or guarantee has been violated. Additionally, if there has been a billing error on the part of the retailer or if the seller has breached the contract with you in any way, you may be able to insist on a refund.

Depending on the specific circumstances, you may also have the right to a refund due to a breach of consumer protection laws.

Does Asurion have a time limit?

Yes, Asurion does have a time limit for submitting a claim. Depending on the type of device and the nature of the issue, the time limit for submitting a claim with Asurion ranges from 14 days to 30 days after the occurrence of a covered event.

Generally, the time limit to submit a device claim is 14 days while the time limit to submit a claim for an accessory is 30 days. In some instances, you may be eligible to file a claim outside the normal submission window.

To qualify for an extended submission period, you must provide documentation proving that you experienced an issue with the device due to covered circumstances outside of your control.

It is important to submit a claim to Asurion promptly because you are responsible for any cost incurred for a repair or replacement if you fail to submit a claim on time. Additionally, Asurion does have the right to deny a claim if it is submitted after the time limit or without the required documentation.
