  • "Battery chargers" means devices such as an AC or DC adapter that can charge a mobile phone device.
  • Products that have been processed, modified, analyzed (including software modification and analysis (including routing, etc.), reverse engineering, decompiling, and disassembly), or repaired at a repair location not officially designated by KDDI are not eligible for warranty and may not be accepted for repair.

After the period during which the parts for repairs are in stock, applications for repairs cannot be accepted. Even during this period, some malfunctions may not be able to be repaired due to lack of parts.
