The extent to which repairs are economically viable or can be achieved outside the warranty period may have to be clarified in individual cases. All warranty and repair cases of DESY standard devices should generally be handled by IT. This avoids waiting time and unnecessary work.

Hints about Mobile Phone Repairs

In the case of defective smartphones, it should be noted that repairs are only carried out if the devices still have a current operating system and are protected with security updates. In addition, the repair costs incurred should be in proportion to the remaining update period.

Further information on DESY standard mobile phones (also a list of DESY standard mobile phones) can be found on the following web site:
