Ocean iPhone Repair offers a price match program that will match any competitors price within a 5 mile radius from our location on Ocean Avenue San francisco, 94112. Our price match is not always guaranteed and will only be available depending on the current market price on our purchased parts and weather or not the competitors price includes a similar warranty to match our 1 year warranty. Most phone repair shops only offer a 30-90 day warranty which we will not be able to do a price match with because of our 1 year warranty.
Do it yourself (DIY) Parts Warranty
Parts are tested prior to shipping out or selling locally. They leave our facility tested and working. Our parts only carry a 30 day warranty if, and only if, the part has not been installed by the customer. Once part has been installed then our warranty becomes void to the purchaser. All parts must be tested by our customer prior to installation. Any signs of use, scratches, dust, cracks, liquid damage, removal of any seals or stamps, rips in flex cables will be void through our limited 30 day warranty. All said are considered physical damaged by user and "Ocean iPhone Repair" will not be held responsible.
A professional technician and professional tools are always recommended for any repair.
Water / Liquid Damage Repair
Unfortunately "Ocean iPhone Repair" does not offer any type of warranty for any liquid damaged device repair. There are many factors and reasons as to why most repair shops do not offer warranty on liquid damage repairs but the main reason is there is simply no way to tell how long a device will continue to work after a liquid damage repair.
Some devices work for weeks or months, some work for years but some can only last a day or hours. Liquid and electronics simply do not work together. Most liquid damage repairs would be for "data recovery" only where we repair the deivce enough to retrieve photos and videos and save onto a flash drive for the customer. In many cases the device would not be usable to the customer if we decide further repair other than "data recovery" is possible.
Some cases we are able to repair the device enough for the customer to be able to take the device home, do a back-up themselves and be able to still use the device. These are the cases in which we must really stress that although the device is "working for now", there is absolutely no way to predict how long the device would work for.
"Ocean iPhone Repair" will not be held responsible for any device that may have unforeseen damages prior to our repair. A device may be working ok prior to our repair but unforeseen damages may have occurred during repair. One example of an unforeseen damage: Customers phone has a cracked screen due to a hard fall. The fall might of loosened a chip or filter on the main board which can break off completely during our repair causing the device to act inappropriately or not work completely. All devices brought to us are already broken. We are a repair shop only.
Another example of a device is that is brought to us for repair that has been previously repaired through either a third party repair shop or authorized repair:
the prevously repaired device might have had a damage internally hidden from eyesight and could have only been noticed after phone or device has been taken apart, which in turn ended up damaging the component further that was problably held together by two components pushing together which causes a sudden unforeseen damage to the device rendering it inoperable. We have seen repairs from other shops with tape holding components together and also really bad soldering jobs that were only temporary repairs.
"Ocean iPhone Repair" will not be liable for these situations, by purchasing a repair with "Ocean iPhone Repair" you automatically agree to all the terms and conditions of our services.
"Ocean iPhone Repair" is in no way affiliated with any brands or companies who make the devices or products brought to us for repair.
"Ocean iPhone Repair" does not offer any warranty or liability for any damage to a "custom repair". All custom repairs are a labor charge only. Custom repairs are all repairs that are not part of any of our services shown on our website.
Every now and then we have customers calling in to do a custom repair such as: soldering wires for a device like a remote control car, external battery, car stereo wires, table lamp, power tools etc.
Many times we do take in custom repairs and we enjoy learning new repairs other than our typical repair services but we do not include our warranty services with any custom repairs. "Ocean iPhone Repair" will not be liable for any damages that may accure either during or after our custom repair job. All custom repair jobs are final price with no refunds given for any reason.
Micro-soldering mother board repairs
** Please note: micro-soldering work requires a lot of high heat from tools to complete a job. Not all devices are repairable and in rare cases high heat can cause further damage to a device. By getting your device repaired through "Ocean iPhone Repair" you agree to all terms and conditions.
Should your device become un-repairable or become further damaged during repair, "Ocean iPhone Repair" will not be held responisble for further damages that may make your device become permanently damaged. "Ocean iPhone Repair" will not reimburse or replace any device for any reason. The customer is fully responsible for their device and/or responsible for replacing their own device at their own expense.
*** Please note: The "no audio" repairs are more common on CDMA versions model A1660 from Verizon or sprint. AT&T and T-Mobile model A1778 are not as common but also have a risk of losing cell service after audio IC repair. Should this happen then we cannot fix the "no cell service" issue. We will give full refund, we will not reimburse or replace your device if this problem happens after we attempt to repair audio. Your device will not be able to connect to cell service anymore and if restored on itunes you will not be able to get past the activation screen.
"Ocean iPhone Repair" cannot guarantee any board work at all. "Ocean iPhone Repair" cannot guarantee data recovery should your device become permanently damaged during repair.
If your device was working but only had a minor issue that needed soldering work and your device becomes permanently damaged during repair "Ocean iPhone Repair" will not be held responsible and will not reimburse or replace your device. All repairs are entirely at the customers own risk.
Board level repairs do not come cheap and are not a "quick" repair. It takes special equipment, software and skill to diagnose and do this type of repair. There are only a handful of people in the Bay Area who know how to do this work!
Repairs can take anywhere from 2-7 business days to repair and in rare cases 1-2 months. If you cannot wait that long, please do not contact me. I can not do rush jobs for anyone. Some repairs take longer than others and I do them all in the order I receive them.
I charge more for all "previous repair attempt" jobs. Even if it was just a simple screen replacement gone wrong, many times these are the worst types of damages to the phone (long screw damage). Contact me for quote. Diagnostics for micro-soldering takes a lot of time. I charge a $20.00 diagnostics fee if I cannot repair the device, no exceptions. There will not be a diagnostics fee for successful micro-soldering repair jobs, only the repairs I cannot fix will be charged a $20 diagnostics fee.
If a device is non-repairable, the customer has the option to donate their damaged device to "Ocean iPhone Repair". If a device is donated then "Ocean iPhone Repair" will waive the $20.00 diagnostics fee.
All successful micro-soldering repairs come with a 3 month warranty.
Damages done during our repair
"Ocean iPhone Repair" will not be held liable for any damages that may occur during or after any our repair job. It is at the customer or purchaser's full responsibility to accept that by getting any device repaired with "Ocean iPhone Repair" they are doing so at their own risk. By getting a device repaired with "Ocean iPhone Repair", you, the customer, agree automatically to all of the terms and conditions for "Ocean iPhone Repair" once your device is in our hands. Please be aware that all devices brought to use all have already been damaged and we are only here to try to repair or refurbish all devices.
Some of the damages we've come across were an unforeseen damage, meaning we could not have known about the damage until we have taken the device apart and a sudden damage occured that was already damaged but became completely damaged once it was touched. This is part of our "unforeseen damage" section.
Refunds or exchanges
All refunds on a credit card or debit card will have a due processing time of 2-7 business days from Square. Ocean iPhone Repair has no control over the refund time for you to get your money back. Ocean iPhone Repair will not give cash back for any credit card or debit card purchases, no exceptions.
Here is a small example of when a card refund can be a big inconvenience for a customer: Customer comes in and makes a purchase with a credit card or debit card but ended up not being satisfied and wanted a refund.
Even though the charge on the card was that same day, even just within a few minutes from swipping the card and issuing a refund, the customer must wait 2-7 business days for Square to process and refund the money.
Ocean iPhone Repair will absolutly not give cash back for the inconvenience of a customer having to wait a few days to get their money back through Square! Once a card is swipped through our Square card reader and processessed, the payment is with Square and not with Ocean iPhone Repair.
Exchanges are available only under our one year warranty policy. Please see our warranty information at the top of the page.
