Common Questions

The XR20 price will vary depending on retailer, age, special offers and whether or not it's purchased with a service plan. If purchased with a 2 year service contract for example, you would likely pay much less for the phone itself up front. You can compare Nokia XR20 prices from around the web here on The Informr.

Nokia backs up the XR20 with a 3 Years parts & labour warranty.

If your XR20 has problems and is still within its warranty period, you could contact Nokia support or the retailer you purchased the phone from. You'll find Nokia's contact information here.
