The repair program will cover all four Pixel phones including XL versions, also the second generation handsets come with 12 months of warranty extended by the company after receiving complains about bad quality. The mail-in repair service requires your device’s IMEI number. After entering the number you can describe your problem which you are experiencing with your phone, so the company knows they are not dealing with a cracked display or any physical issues.
The repair work will be completed in seven to ten days, depending upon how big is the problem. You can also get a free repair if your handset is still under warranty. According to the new service FAQs, Google will send you a prepaid packaging from two to three days after you open your repair ticket, you can also pack your device by yourself.
