Maintenance for phones purchased from Elisa or Saunalahti is easily available at the maintenance firm of your choice or our shops. If another device you have purchased from Elisa needs maintenance, please primarily contact the manufacturer’s support.
My phone or tablet needs maintenance—what do I do?
Take the phone or tablet you purchased from Elisa or Saunalahti that requires maintenance directly to a maintenance firm or an Elisa shop. If you take the device to our shop, it will be sent to a maintenance firm.*
Average maintenance time is approximately 1–2 weeks.
You will receive a text message when your repaired device is ready for pick-up.
Broken display? Frozen battery? We provide maintenance in less than an hour without appointment. Our maintenance work has a lifetime warranty. Contact Fonum! Fonum has almost 30 places of business.
TIP: Back up the photos, videos and contact information on your phone before taking it to maintenance, as data on the device may be wiped out as a result of maintenance actions. On Apple iPhones, make sure that the Find my iPhone feature has been switched off.
*) If you need maintenance for a television, computer, gaming console, household appliance or accessory device (e.g. headphones or a smart watch), contact the device manufacturer.

Elisa Takuu 3 years warranty for phones and tablets
As of 1 May 2019, Elisa grants an extended warranty, Elisa Takuu, for new phones and tablets sold by Elisa as an additional benefit. The Elisa Takuu warranty extends the warranty period of a device until the end of the third year (36 months) in cases where the manufacturer's warranty period is shorter and has expired.
The Elisa Takuu warranty is valid when the following conditions are fulfilled:
All Elisa's consumer customers who have at least one of the following Elisa products are eligible for the Elisa Takuu warranty:
phone subscription (except for Prepaid subscriptions)
mobile broadband subscription (except for Prepaid subscriptions)
Elisa Viihde (with Elisa Viihde set-top box)
The agreement concerning the above-mentioned product must be concluded by the latest 30 days after the purchase of a device under warranty.
I have a defect not covered by the warranty, how much will maintenance cost?
Warranty does not cover devices that have been damaged mechanically or by moisture. A wet device can never be repaired reliably.
If you know that the defect in your device falls outside the warranty before taking it to maintenance (e.g. phone damaged by moisture), you may also ask for a separate cost estimate for repairing the device and only then decide whether you want the device repaired or not. Contact our maintenance partner Fonum and ask for a cost estimate for repairing.
I need a replacement device during maintenance, what should I do?
You may ask for a rental device for the duration of the maintenance at an Elisa shop. The rental device involves a fee. Availability varies from shop to shop.
Can someone else pick up my phone after maintenance at an Elisa shop?
You will receive a text message when your device is ready for pick-up at one of our shops. You may give another person your hard-copy maintenance referral which they can use to pick up the phone from an Elisa shop for you.
If you have been using a spare device rented from an Elisa shop, it must be returned at the time of the pick-up.
Need a new SIM card? The easiest way to order and activate a new card is through OmaElisa.
