Important things to do before handover the phone to repair.
Before you hand over your smartphone for repair, there are a few things you should do. Even though we use our smartphones with extreme caution, it is possible that you will damage them. Some damage is severe enough that you’ll need to take your device to a service center for repairs.
So here are the most important precautions that you should take before bringing your phone to a repair shop.
- Take out the security locks.
If a PIN, pattern lock, or fingerprint authentication is required, you should disable it. Once the specialists working on your phone believe they have fixed everything, they will be able to quickly test the operation of your phone.
Users using Android devices: Remove the PIN, pattern lock, or any other stumbling block you’ve added to Settings > Security & Lock Screen > Lock screen.
You must disable the passcode on your iPhone. Go to Touch ID & Passcode in Settings. Go to Settings > Passcode on smartphones without Touch ID. Go to Settings > Face ID & Passcode if you have an iPhone X.
- Make a backup and reset
If your smartphone contains sensitive information, you should reset it before handing it up. Before you go any further, make a complete backup of your Android and/or iOS device. However, make a mental note of your phone’s IMEI and serial numbers.
If you suspect foul play while submitting your phone for repair, this gives you peace of mind. Go to Settings > General > About on your iPhone. Android users can take note of the serial number and IMEI details by going to Settings > About Phone.
- Remove your SIM card first.
This may seem self-evident, but it’s worth mentioning nonetheless. It’s a good idea to keep the SIM ejector tool available for times when you’ll need to hand over your device. Even if you’re migrating from an iPhone to an Android, you can use your existing SIM card on any other smartphone.
- Disconnect from social accounts.
Unpair your phone by disconnecting it from e-mail, messengers, social media accounts, and anything else it may be linked to. You don’t want to give the repairman access to your personal information.
- Remove any personal information.
This includes documents, images, chats, movies, and any other content you don’t wish to share with the rest of the world.
- Remove accessories.
Remove any phone accessories you may have purchased. Covers, protective cases, and other items may be included.
