What are the hours and when should I call?

Polaroid operates the call center for this 800-765-2764 phone number Mon-Fri 10am-7pm, Sat 10am-4pm ET. The short answer is that you should call on a Monday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 177 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).

Automatically call when they open

When you use our free AI-powered phone to call and talk, wait on hold, or navigate for you, it will automatically wait until the Polaroid call center opens before trying to call. It will ask your permission before it places the call, so you can also further delay that scheduled call until you are ready. But that means you can "set it and forget it" ahead of time.
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this Polaroid phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like Polaroid staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy time to call

The least busy day to call Polaroid is Saturday. The most busy day to call is Tuesday, which averages 217% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 177 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

But if you use our free call and talk for me or wait on hold for me service, you don't really need to worry about average wait times.

The best time to call Polaroid

In summation, the best day to call Polaroid is Monday.

Why Customers Call Polaroid

If you have time to do a bit of reading before you call Polaroid, we recommend you read over some of our problem-specific articles.

What is the difference between Polaroid Originals and Polaroid Instant Cameras?

The main difference between Polaroid Originals and Polaroid Instant Cameras lies in their technology and product range. Polaroid Originals cameras are a modern adaptation of classic Polaroid cameras, offering vintage aesthetics and instant film capabilities. They incorporate advanced features like double exposure and self-timers, providing creative options for capturing unique instant photographs. On the other hand, Polaroid Instant Cameras generally refer to the broader range of instant cameras produced by Polaroid, including digital options. While both camera types produce instant prints, Polaroid Originals cameras focus on reviving the nostalgia and charm of traditional Polaroid photography, whereas Polaroid Instant Cameras encompass a wider range of models with varying features, catering to different user preferences and needs.

Can I use old Polaroid film in a new Polaroid camera?

No, older Polaroid film cannot be used in new Polaroid cameras. The introduction of new Polaroid cameras in recent years brought along technology advancements and changes in film formats. The new Polaroid cameras require specific film packs designed for their compatibility and functionality. Therefore, old Polaroid film, such as the discontinued SX-70 or 600 film, is not compatible with these new cameras. It is important to use the correct film packs recommended by the manufacturer to ensure optimal performance and capture quality. Using incompatible film may result in incorrect exposure, image distortion, or even damage to the camera. Please refer to the camera's user manual or contact Polaroid customer support for further assistance on film compatibility.

How does a Polaroid camera work?

A Polaroid camera captures instant photos by using a unique process called integral film. When you press the shutter button, light enters the camera through the lens and exposes the film. This triggers a chemical reaction that initiates the development process. The camera consists of a film pack containing both the film and the necessary chemicals. The exposed film then passes through a series of rollers inside the camera that spreads the chemicals evenly across the image. As the film is pulled out, a negative image is created, with layers of chemicals forming the final photograph. The film is sandwiched between the positive and negative layers, protecting it from light. After a certain time, typically around 60 seconds, the photograph fully develops and can be peeled apart, revealing a finished instant photo ready to be enjoyed.

Polaroid Customer Help Desk / Web Support

Online customer service support
As a last, sometimes only, resort- Polaroid customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
