Retail stores or companies providing customers with a return policy offer more competition to their counterparts without a return policy as customers tend to trust more on their products and services with an assurance of returning them for refund or exchange if they are not satisfied. The return policy is put in place by the retail store or company and varies from one company to another or from one retail store to another in terms of conditions, products eligible and the process it entails. Let’s know about Palm Phone Return Policy.
Palm provides their customers who purchase phones from www.palm.com with a return policy that guides the return process in case the customer is not satisfied with their purchase. Since Palm reserves the right to change or alter any content or condition in the phone return policy, the customer must adhere to the set return period and be ready to follow the return process set for them to be eligible for refund or exchange.
