How to File a Claim


Contact Likewize

All claims for replacement due to accidental damage, loss, theft or malfunction (after the manufacturer's warranty expires), must be initiated by contacting Likewize's Customer Care Center at 1-888-399-5296 or online at  Claims for repair follow the same process.

There is no longer a need to visit a Carolina West Wireless retail location to initiate a claim or receive a replacement device.  All device replacements and / or repairs will be administered through Likewize.

Claims must be reported within 60 days of the incident and proof of loss and/or ownership must be provided, if requested. Only the account holder may file the claim.
Please have the following information ready:

  • Your wireless phone number
  • The account holder's billing address
  • Wireless phone manufacturer/model and unique serial number also called an ESN or IMEI
  • Date, time, location and detailed description of the incident
  • Police report number (if theft occurred)

Repair and Replacement

If your claim is approved for a replacement device, Likewize will ship the replacement directly to you. Deductibles apply and range from $49 to $399 depending on the new retail value of your device and type of claim.

If your claim qualifies for a repair, Likewize or Apple will notify you of the walk-in or mail-in options available to you. Deductibles apply and range from $29 to $99 depending on the repair needed.
