Accidents happen, especially with smartphones. It’s happened to millions of others so don’t feel like your world has ended if you dropped your brand Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and cracked the display or rear glass panel. No matter how strong Samsung, Apple, and Corning claim their glass is, a weird drop is going to crack it. Don’t fret, Samsung will repair your pricey smartphone for a fee.
The cost to repair a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 that’s not on warranty costs:
- $239 for the front screen
- $99 for the rear panel
How to get your Note 9 repaired
The quickest and fastest method is to find the nearest uBreakiFix store to bring your Note 9 in for a quick repair. You can search and make an appointment at uBreakiFix by following this link. uBreakiFix is the only authorized third-party repair shop that will keep your warranty intact. The technicians at uBreakiFix have been trained in Samsung mobile repairs and carry original equipment parts. Your phone will be just like new once its technicians fixes your Note 9.
If you happen to not live in a place that’s too far to drive to a uBreakiFix retail location, you can call 1-800-SAMSUNG and set up a repair where you can mail your Note 9 in. This option isn’t ideal for everyone as you’ll need a spare phone since you’ll be shipping yours out. However, Samsung turnaround is relatively fast in my personal experience. The total time I was without my Galaxy S8 was about two weeks.
You’ll need a spare phone if you’ll want to stay connected and Amazon is always a great place to look for unlocked devices. If your carrier is T-Mobile or AT&T you can pick up a BluStudio X8 Android for $49.99 with free Prime Shipping. Verizon and Sprint customers have fewer alternatives to unlocked devices, but we’re fans of the Moto G6 which typically sells for $200 on Amazon and is compatible with all carriers and even runs Android 8.0.
At deTeched we never recommend using non-authorized repair shops to fix smartphones, especially ones that cost $1000 or more. While you might save a few bucks at places like those, we’ve heard way too many bad repair stories to justify the cost savings.
