Repair iPad After a Child Breaks It? Is It Worth It?

January 27th, 2015

repair ipadToday, I had an interesting conversation with a friend. She said that her son’s iPad was so cracked that they couldn’t even see their favorite game. Not only that, some of their touches aren’t being recognized. She said that soon it will be completely dead, and they will have to purchase a new one.

This led me to think about how many other people come to the same conclusion. Their kids break their iPads, and then they just ditch them for a new one.

That’s a hefty expense! Especially when parents can just have it repaired. Why would you pay hundreds of dollars for an iPad when you could just pay maybe a hundred or two to repair the one you already have? That’s a significant savings.

Repair iPad Over Buying a New One

Think about it – does your child really need the latest iPad out? Do you really need to spend a ton of money on a new one? No, your child can be just as happy with the one he or she has repaired. Actually, they may be even happier because they won’t lose all of those hours they spent creating their Minecraft worlds and other games that are saved on their device.

This is why I told my friend that she shouldn’t just let it die. iResQ has certified technicians, 24 hour turnaround, and uses quality parts. She said that she liked the points I made about repairing an older iPad rather than buying a new one, so she was going to repair her kid’s device.

Don’t spend a small fortune on a new iPad for your child. Repair the one you have to save money and make your child happy.

iPhone Wi-Fi Problems

January 20th, 2015

iPhone wifi problemsMany iPhone owners are reporting that they have been having Wi-Fi problems. Some of them say that they can connect, but the signal is intermittent. Others say that they can’t connect at all. In any case, it’s frustrating to deal with an iPhone that won’t connect to the Internet when you need it to. This is why we do everything we can to correct the problem.

iPhone Wi-Fi Problems – Troubleshooting

When customers call us, we ask them to go through a series of troubleshooting steps. This includes turning the Wi-Fi off and then back on again. This can solve the issue for some people, while others continue to deal with the same troubles.

We also ask them to perform a hard reset. This is holding down the Home button and the power button until the iPhone switches off. Wait a few seconds or a minute and then turn it back on. This can solve any problems that you experience with settings. Hard resetting turns everything off and then when it restarts errors usually are corrected.

When It’s Time to Turn to Our Certified Technicians

If this doesn’t help customers, the Wi-Fi issues end up usually being internal. Sometimes, drops can cause the internal antenna to break, disconnect, or just loosen. This means that our technicians will have to go into your phone and repair the antenna, or replace it with a brand new one.

It’s difficult to know if you’ll need a new antenna until the technician looks at what is going on inside of the phone, but we assure you that we will let you know the exact problem to let you know how much it would cost to fix your iPhone Wi-Fi issues. We provide free diagnostics for this reason.

So if you’re having Internet problems with your iPhone, try the troubleshooting tips we’ve provided you here. If they don’t help, see our iPhone Wi-Fi repair page for more information. You can either order that replacement, or you can order our free diagnostics if you’re not quite sure that is the issue. In either case, we’ll take good care of your phone and return it to you repaired (if you so choose after hearing the diagnosis).

We’ve been in business since 1994. We have successfully repaired many devices for customers. It’s why many of them come back to us time and time again. Turn to the best when you need the best in customer service and quality parts. We look forward to servicing your iPhone.

Battery Replacement – Is It Worth the Cost?

January 15th, 2015

iPhones are notorious for losing battery life. That’s why there was this video made by Samsung:

It’s true that the iPhone may fall victim to the criticism of a fast dying battery, but it’s probably not been like that since you first bought it. You probably remember the days you could plug it in, and have the battery last all day long without charging it. Oh, the memories.

Over time, you’ve probably noticed that it doesn’t quite make it home alive. And then, it doesn’t quite make it to midafternoon. The next thing you know, you’re in the red at lunch time. Sometimes, it’s worse, you don’t make it to 10 AM. You just bought the phone last year though – you can’t get a new one!

You shouldn’t have to get a new phone!battery replacement

Getting a battery replacement on your iPhone should be enough to give you back a battery life you can live with for a long time. You won’t have to be a “Wall Hugger.” You can move about your busy life with the peace of mind that your phone isn’t going to cut out on you.

What to Do When an iPad Breaks in Its Case

January 8th, 2015

ipad screen repairMany people spend almost $100 on a case for their iPad. They believe that their device will be indestructible with it. That belief vanishes when they drop their device or their child chucks it across a room and then see that the glass inside is shattered. How could this have happened?

No case is going to keep your iPad 100% secure. While a small drop will protect the device, a drop that is far off the ground or floor or any pressure on the front of it will end up cracking it.

Your first instinct may be to take it out of the case. That’s probably not a good idea. If you do that, all of the glass will be everywhere. That could cause cuts on your hands and feet when you step on the glass that made it to the floor.

It’s best to just keep the case on your device.

What if you need to send your device in for a repair?

iPad Screen Repair at iResQ

It’s likely you want to get the cracked screen on your iPad replaced. Hopefully, you’re choosing us to have that done. If you do, you don’t have to worry about a thing. Just send your iPad in with the case.

Our certified technicians will carefully remove the case from your iPad. They will clean it up, and dispose of the glass carefully.

After they clean the case and your iPad up, they will remove the screen you have on there now, and replace it with a brand new one. This may include replacing both the digitizer and the LCD or just the LCD depending on how back the damage is to your device.

Once everything looks new again, they will package it up for you – the iPad and the case (separately). You will receive them both in the returned box, and then you can decide if you want to put the case back on your device.

So when your iPad breaks in its case, do nothing. Simply package it up in a box, send it to us, and let us handle the messiness of the glass. Order an iPad screen repair now.

Three Options When Fixing Your iPhone

January 2nd, 2015

No one wants their iPhone to break, but it happens. It happens way too much actually. There aren’t any statistics, but we’re sure it’s thousands of people a day around the world. With that being said, many people wonder what to do when their iPhone breaks. The following are your three options.

Fixing Your iPhone

#1: Contact Apple Support

If your iPhone has a warranty, you should probably contact Apple. They will want you to either go to a local store or send it in. They will then be able to repair it or send you a new one. This may be free, or you may need to pay some money. It all depends on what’s wrong with your phone, and what type of warranty you have for it.

For some people, paying Apple to fix their phone can be just as much as purchasing a new phone. It does get pricey if there’s an internal problem that requires new parts that aren’t covered by warranty. If this the case, after you check with them, you may want to consider option #2.

#2: Contact iResQ

You knew it was coming, but we have to tell you that we have the lowest prices around for the quality of our work and parts. Our certified technicians are trained and have experience working on all models of iPhones. They know what they are doing, and the cost to you will probably be much less than what others will charge you.

Beware – before you tell us you’ve found iPhone repair places that charge less, keep in mind that they may be using very low quality parts. When they do that, the chance of those parts failing you in the near future is high. The other risk is that the technicians working on your phone may be inexperienced, and that could lead to further damage.

This leads us to the final, not so good option…

#3: Do It Yourself

Please don’t. We receive mobile devices all of the time in pieces because our customers tried to repair a cracked iPhone screen or replace the headphone jack. It may look easy and quick on the sites that show you how to do it, but it’s really not. The tiny screws and the vulnerability of the other parts in the iPhone could lead you to having either a mess of iPhone parts or a brick if you manage to get it back together.

As you can see, there’s only really one option for your iPhone breaks – contact iResQ (unless you have the warranty and Apple will fix or replace your phone for free). Call or email us today with any questions you may have, or browse our site to find the repair you need with a low price you can afford.
