Look for signs of physical or liquid damage that aren’t covered by your warranty. All clear? Then, check your device warranty coverage period:
  • New devices (other than Apple®): Typically a 1-year manufacturer warranty with some new devices having a 2-year manufacturer warranty – Learn more
  • AT&T Certified Restored: Typically a 90-day warranty
  • AT&T Certified Pre-Owned: No warranty (see our Return Policy)
  • New Apple devices or devices replaced by Apple: Typically a 1-year warranty
  • Insurance replacement devices from Asurion (including Apple devices): Typically a 1-year warranty after the replacement date

Heads up: Your device warranty may cover accessories, too. Find out if your accessory is covered
