A lot of problems can be fixed without needing to send your device off for repair.

You can try:


    switching your device on and off


    doing a hard reset of your device


    checking for software updates


    closing down all applications


    if it’s a battery problem, switch the Bluetooth, WiFi and GPS off 

If you don’t have any luck with the above, try our handy troubleshooter tool , which can help find problems with your specific device.
