Google and uBreakiFix to provide a free Pixel smartphone repair to frontline workers
To recognize the heroic efforts of frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re teaming up with Google to provide one-time free repairs of Pixel Smartphones to first responders and frontline workers.
Healthcare heroes in the United States, including law enforcement, police officers, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), firefighters, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and nursing home and hospital staff can present his or her ID badge at any of uBreakiFix’s more than 500 participating U.S. locations to receive one free Google Pixel smartphone repair, regardless of the device model or type of damage.
Free Pixel phone repairs will be available to first responders and healthcare workers in the United States through June 30 or while supplies last and are eligible for carry-in or curbside service only. Customers can find their nearest location, view available services, and schedule a repair appointment at ubreakifix.com.

Earlier this month, we expanded our repair service options to include contactless curbside service, mail-in availability, and ‘We Come to You’ appointments. These changes allow us to continue providing critical tech support and repair as communities nationwide transitioned to working remotely, homeschooling, connecting virtually with friends and loved ones, entertaining themselves from home, and more.
In addition to following CDC recommendations and federal, state, and local guidance, we have provided detailed public health guidelines to all franchised locations, which include increased hand-washing frequency, increased cleaning of workspaces and high-touch surfaces, minimal person-to-person contact by wearing gloves when handling devices and wearing mask coverings where required by applicable law, and thorough sanitation of all devices upon receipt and return.
We hope that this initiative alleviates any stress that a frontline hero may be facing from dealing with a broken Google Pixel smartphone and that we can help reconnect them to what matters most.
