I love Android Hawaii they saved all of my pictures and my videos after I dropped my phone into the ocean. The guy who I spoke with snake name is MJ and he did a super job I got everything back the way it was in my phone is even working again most definitely worth the money that I paid to recover my memories because I did no backup. Thank you so much

My phone supposedly crashed! Lost contacts, texts and photos. I was heartbroken because there were baby photos and last photos of my mom. Verizon and Best Buy unable to help. MJ at Android Hawaii recovered all of it! If you thought great customer service was a thing of the past, think again. MJ was quick and efficient...explaining things to me...a technically challenged person. He went above and beyond! He is awesome!

Android Hawaii rocks! MJ and his team are wireless wizards! Fastest and friendliest services around. My wife's Samsung S20 had a broken screen which was unresponsive and we couldn't get into the phone at all. MJ was able to unlock the phone and complete an expedient data recovery on it. We are so thankful. Thanks MJ!

WARRANTY
Android Hawaii offers a limited 1 year warranty on all parts and labor associated with your repair and is not transferable. The limited warranty is made exclusively for the benefit of the original customer of the repair, and does not include unlocking services. This limited 1 year warranty covers manufacturer-related part defects on parts installed by Android Hawaii or franchised locations as well as the workmanship associated with the repair only, and does not cover supplemental damage. Supplemental damage can be defined as any damage unrelated to the preceding repair, including, but not limited to physical damage or liquid damage to the device. Manufacturer-related defect symptoms may include one or more of the following: a spontaneous or abrupt decline in overall device functionality, touchscreen sensitivity, or LCD performance. Exclusions to this warranty include, but are not limited to, physical and/or liquid damage, game system reflows, batteries, accessories and soldered components. Liquid damage and subsequent physical damage which occurs after a completed repair will void this warranty. Additionally, this warranty is automatically voided in the event of a manufacturer software enhancement that adversely affects the functionality of the phone. If you are disputing a repair and you are receiving a refund that refund does not include the labor charge associated with your repair or any subcontracted labor provided to Android Hawaii and there is a 20% restocking fee on returned parts if approved. Android Hawaii and franchised location reserves the right to resolve any and all disputes concerning this acknowledgment of 1 year limited warranty coverage.
