Will they do the bass fix too? For an extra fee probably, as the weak
bass isn't really a defect. The bass fix (bigger capacitors) was
published here, can they take a look at that too?
I hope doing both fixes at once will be economical, as most of the work
is common to both jobs. (Ship the phone only once, take it apart only
once, reassemble only once, ship it back only once.)
If they verify the buzz fix with a test call, then they'll even verify
the bass fix didn't break anything at the same time.

What is the problem with a country outside EU? If the Norwegian
government adds a tax or fee, as they usually do, then the payment is my
problem. Not yours. They post office simply notify me and hold the
returning package back until I sort it out. All they need to calculate
tax is the receipt for the repair fee. I guess this is provided anyway,
as businesses normally provide a receipt.
