4 Myths about iPhone Repair

April 6th, 2017

It is too expensive to get an iPhone fixed.

This statement is false. It’s completely inaccurate to say an iPhone repair is expensive. It all depends on what needs to be fixed and the model of the iPhone. The majority of screen repairs are done for less than what a replacement or new iPhone would cost. Most all repairs come in for a cost lower than purchasing a new iPhone.

Since I have insurance, I’ll just use it to get a new replacement iPhone.

This is not a great assumption to have about your iPhone insurance. Now if you are actually missing your iPhone because it was stolen or lost, then of course a replacement phone through your insurance carrier makes perfect sense. But, if your iPhone is damaged from dropping it, then check first about your deductible and what it covers before acting. Many times the deductible is much more costly than just having the repairs done alone. Another thing to keep in mind is that a ‘replacement’ can refer to either a refurbished replacement or a brand new replacement. Check with your company to see whether you are getting a brand new replacement or the refurbished version of a broken iPhone someone else turned in as damaged.

Only certified Apple technicians or the manufacturer can fix my iPhone.

False. False. False. Apple has successfully convinced a mass group of iPhone consumers that their company is the only place qualified to repair iPhones. This is not true, as there are numerous qualified, experienced professional iPhone repair technicians that work for themselves and cell repair companies all over the world. Many times these companies provide excellent service in a faster turnaround time than Apple may offer.

Why should I pay to fix my iPhone when I can repair it at home myself?

DIY is nothing new and YouTube only adds to the excitement of fixing things at home to save money and time. But not everything should be a do it yourself project, and one of these things includes iPhone repair. Now it’s definitely not unheard of to go ahead and attempt simple iPhone repairs, but what do you do if things go bad? Practice makes perfect is a phrase we have all heard, so it makes sense that newbies and inexperienced technicians will make mistakes that are more expensive to repair than the original issue. Don’t experiment with this costly road…take your iPhone to a reputable cell phone repair shop to get your repairs done right the first time around.

Does your iPhone Keep Getting Stuck in Recovery Mode?

April 4th, 2017


Has your iPhone seemed to take on a mind of its own? Do you come back to your iPhone to find it is in recovery mode for no reason at all? If so, you probably have already discovered some quick solutions to the issue but not a permanent fix, since it keeps happening every few days.

What is iPhone recovery mode?

In order to understand what recovery mode means, you need to know what the boot loader is in the iPhone. A boot loader is required in every iPhone to load the device’s operating system. Apple calls the boot loader an ‘iBoot.’ This iBoot is always scanning the device for errors and checking to make sure there are not installation issues or other system failures. When iPhone’s iBoot find any error, it will kick the device into recovery mode to prevent further damage to the components.

What to do when the iPhone goes into Recovery mode:

There are three options the iPhone will give you when it goes into recovery mode.

  • Restore: When restoring your iPhone during recovery mode, it is critical to know that all apps, data, games, photos, documents, and videos will be permanently erased from your device. Typically, you can restore and recover the media and files later.
  • Update: If you are able to update your iPhone during the recovery mode, then doing so will update the device to the latest iOS software. After updating the software, your iPhone should stop going into recovery mode.
  • Nothing at all: This isn’t really a useful option, but here it is.

When it is stuck and unresponsive in recovery mode:

For some people, when the iPhone goes into recovery mode, it gets stuck there. Meaning it is completely unresponsive and incapable of letting you navigate away from the recovery screen. The device doesn’t recognize if you are connected to a computer either.

Try this to get out of the stuck screen of recovery mode:

Connect the iPhone via USB cable to your computer. Hold the sleep button and the home button down until the iPhone boots up to display the Apple logo on the classic white screen. After seeing the Apple logo, you know you have successfully gotten unstuck.

If your iPhone keeps getting stuck in recovery mode after following these instructions, then don’t risk any further damage to your device. Take your iPhone to the nearest local, trustworthy cell phone repair shop to have the experts get it back to normal working order.

March 17th, 2017

mobile iphone repairFrom time to time we all have a problem with our Smartphone or iPhone.  Your callers cannot hear you or you cannot hear them.  Maybe you can’t make outgoing calls, or can’t receive them.  It is definitely an inconvenience for individuals, but it can mean lost revenue for a company.  Imagine the convenience of not having to take time from important business matters to take your phone out to be serviced.  We think we have an answer to help if you find yourself in this situation.

Using a Smartphone or iPhone Repair Business

March 9th, 2017

iphone crackedThere aren’t too many people in the world today who aren’t the proud owners of some sort of smartphone. With the technology advanced society that we live in today, owning a smartphone has become a basic need for everyone. The truth is that regardless of what kind of smartphone you own, after a period of time something always goes wrong with it. Whether it be the infamous cracked screen or some critical function just crashed, whatever the case, you are going to need help with repairs and quick because nobody really likes to go a minute without having access to their phone.

So now comes the time where you have to make a decision as to who you will use to repair your phone and you are seriously considering the mobile repair business as opposed to a standard repair shop, and for good reason. The mobile repair service saves you time and money because it accommodates by coming to where ever you are, which in turn, saves you the time of traveling to a standard repair shop and saves you some gas money, as well.

Another benefit of using a mobile repair business is that you basically cut the costs of repairs in half when you use this service. The manufacturer and mobile carrier’s repair services have always been known to be higher than something like a kiosk or the mobile repairs because it’s their products and the original replacements of phone parts cost more than aftermarket parts. Therefore, it would make sense for the manufacturers and mobile carriers to charge more for their repair services.

When dealing with standard repair businesses you may have to endure the daunting experience of calling to schedule an appointment to be seen and you could be on hold for quit sometime because a lot of people use the standard repair business. This also means that it could be awhile before they can fit you in their schedule to repair your phone. This is usually not the case when you deal with the mobile repair service, they allow you the convenience of scheduling a service date and time online and around your schedule.

That type of service would be considered superb because the customer is everything to a business and the idea of giving them control of the whole customer experience is a genius concept that won’t ever fail and helps to both gain and retain customers.

Why You Should Never Go to the Manufacturer for Screen Repair  

March 9th, 2017

 

iresq iphone repairYou have been living on the edge with your phone since the day you brought it. You just didn’t feel like you needed to invest the extra money for a case because you are very careful and nothing won’t happen to your phone, besides you will guard that thing with your life. Not surprisingly, almost everyone who purchases a phone feels the same way you do, like you are the most responsible person in the world and accidents don’t happen to you. Well, you can never be too sure and there’s nothing wrong with being too safe when it comes to your prized possession. Just in case the unthinkable happens and you need screen repairs, you should definitely think twice about going to your manufacturer for the repairs.

It’s Overpriced

Manufacturer’s are really getting over like fat rats at our expense and lack of knowledge. They are charging well over a hundred bucks to fix cracked screens and it’s taking longer for them to complete the job. Had we had the knowledge, we could just go online maybe amazon or eBay and buy a replacement screen for ten bucks, grab a cellphone repair kit for about $10-15 and complete the job in under 5 minutes. But, of course, this is something that they don’t tell you in the phone manual, it would cost the manufacturer thousands of dollars.

 

It Takes Too Long

It’s bad enough that your phone broke but to be without it who knows how long while the manufacturer repairs it is just insane. You feel naked without your phone and so disconnected from the world as you know it. Who knows when they will be finished fixing your phone..a couple of hours, a couple of days? Either way, who wants to go through that agony and uncertainty?

You May End Up with a Refurbished Phone

If the manufacturer is unable to repair your broken screen, they will usually go ahead and replace your phone. Sometimes instead of giving you a new phone, they try to cut costs and provide you with a refurbished one instead. A refurbished phone is one that has been returned to the manufacturer due to a defect or technical issue. The refurbished phone has been repaired, tested, cleaned and in some cases it may or may not come with a guarantee.

It’s best to go with iResQ! We have professional technicians to repair your phone quickly and for a low cost. Contact us today for more information why we’re better than a manufacturer when it comes to cellphone repair.
