TruConnect Replacement Phone Policy
The above-mentioned guide is related to free phones provided under lifeline assistant but if you have purchased a phone or upgraded a phone then read here.
Neither TruConnect manufacture any phone nor does it offer its own branded phones so in such a case TruConnect is not responsible for any defects on your phone because it's a cell phone service provider, not a device manufacturer. So if you have got a Samsung Galaxy phone then please contact Samsung customer care and if you have an Apple iPhone then please contact the Apple customer department or visit any nearby retailer. Now regarding the warranty, it depends from brand to brand. Most of the manufacturersoffer 1 year or 2 years warranty on the device model and up to 6 months or 1 year on the mobile phone components like battery, case, and charger. If it's physical damage then it's a waste to apply for a device replacement because most manufacturing companies do not provide phone replacement when your device is damaged by you(sudden drop or water damage).
