Trying to return or exchange defective phone

I bought a new phone which ended up being defective with my $100 rebate perk and I’m trying to return it, but the “My phones” page on my account won’t load. All I see is the lightning and a circle symbol that goes round and round, and never actually loads the page. I don’t have AdBlock, and I already tried different browsers and clearing the browser data (cache, cookies, history, etc.). I tried leaving the page load for an hour, but it just keeps loading. I can access everything else on my account page (Overview, My plans and My settings) except “My phones” even after waiting 5 hours.

How can I get some help to get the web page working? Also, if I return the phone can I get my perk back?

    Hello k2021,

    I am sorry to hear about this situation.
    I recommend trying to access the page using an incognito browser.
    If the issue still persists please contact our support team as our members suggested.
    Also, please read the information Dapfizzer provided regarding the phone return order. 

    Have a lovely day,

    Hi k2021,

    You're the 3rd person having issues with the My phones section today, maybe try again in a couple of hours or contact customer service about this issue:

    - Make sure you are logged into your Fizz account and go here: https://fizz.ca/en/faq/resolving-issues

    - Go to the bottom of the page, you will see a green bubble with a question mark appear on the right, click on it choose Chat

    There is also other options to reach Fizz but this way is the fastest and 24 hours a day.

    If ever the bubble does not appear go here to see how to reach Fizz: https://fizz.ca/en/contact-us

    Have a nice day!✌🏻

    Here's some information that will be sent to you in the event that a return is well considered:


    Any return request must be submitted online via your Fizz account under My phones/Manage my phone/Return my phone.

    The IMEI of the phone that is returned must match the IMEI associated with the return request you submit online. 

     

    If you just bought your phone and are unhappy with it, you may return it under the 15-day return policy.

    You must submit your request online within 15 days of the date on which you received your phone. Once that delay has expired, the return policy will be expired. See the details of the 15-day return policy

     

    If you’re having an issue with your phone, you can make a warranty claim

    Make sure the issue is covered by the warranty. Check warranty details before submitting your request.

    1. The process will take between 4 and 7 business days, starting the moment you drop your package at a Canada Post deposit location. 
    2. Fizz has no control over Canada Post delays, and cannot guarantee that the delays that are indicated will be respected.
    3.  Your mobile plan remains active while your request is being processed. So don’t hesitate to insert your SIM card in another phone to use your Fizz mobile services. 
    4. If you are returning your phone under the 15-day return policy and your request is approved, the promised My Rewards points associated with its purchase will not be deposited in your account since you’re returning it.
    5. If you are making a warranty claim and your request is approved, we’ll replace your phone. If providing you with the same model is impossible, an equivalent model will be sent to you.
