Why Won’t My iPhone Connect to Wifi?  

August 10th, 2017

It’s usually a good idea to connect your phone to a wifi network when you’re in range of one you can trust. This way, you won’t be using up all your data and you can get to where you’re going faster. However, sometimes our phones just won’t connect to the wifi network, even if we have the right password. So what’s up?  

Make Sure Your Wifi Is On  

When you try to connect to your wifi network on your phone, make sure you have your wifi settings turned on. Your phone won’t be able to find the network if its settings are off.  

Check Your Router 

Once you’ve checked to make sure you put in the right password, try checking your wireless router. Make sure it is turned on and that you are within the necessary range of the router itself. You may even want to turn it off and then on again. Sometimes, the problem is just that simple.  

Update Your Operating System  

You may be having trouble because your phone’s operating system isn’t up to date. You can check this by going into your settings and seeing if an update is available. If it is, it’s just a matter of waiting until the system updates. Then you can try connecting to the wifi again.  

Reset Your Network Settings  

This is another option you can use to fix the issue of connecting to your wifi network, especially if the option to click on the network is grayed out on your phone. Go into your settings and under general and reset, you’ll find an option to reset your network settings. This will also reset your saved passwords for any wifi networks, so make sure you have the password on hand when you’re ready to try reconnecting.  

My Phone Still Won’t Connect 

If you’re still having trouble connecting to wifi, it could be a bigger problem than these quick fixes can solve. Bring your phone to us, or let us come to you, and we’ll find out what the problem is.  

We will give your phone a free diagnostic test where we will let you know exactly what is wrong with it and what our repairs will entail. Then we will fix your device and have it back to you within 24 hours of when you first brought it to us. Now that’s a fast solution.

5 Things Life Hack Videos Won’t Tell You About Fixing Your Cell Phone Yourself

August 3rd, 2017

There are about a million videos on the Internet that want to tell you how to fix your phone yourself, and some of them can be very helpful. However, there are certain things you should know about the choice to self-repair your phone.

 

  1. Fix It At Your Own Risk.

 

These videos will make it seem like fixing your phone is a snap, but this isn’t usually true. Cell phones have a lot of small parts, and repairing them takes concentration and cautiousness. If you break your phone worse while trying to fix it, you will only have yourself to blame.

 

In addition, you could get hurt trying to repair your phone, whether you crack the screen and get cut by the glass or something else happens. Being aware of this possibility is important.

 

  1. You Need the Right Tools.

 

Most life hack videos will say you can fix minor issues with your phone using a paperclip or other household items. But when it comes to removing a cracked screen or other delicate work, you will need to have the tools necessary to do the job. And sometimes, these can be extremely expensive.

 

  1. You Have to Track Down Your Parts.

 

If you need a new phone screen or another part, you may think buying it will be a snap. However, you have to pay careful attention to what you’re buying and if it is the right model for your phone. Sometimes, people will sell the wrong parts to those who aren’t informed, and you can end up with some unnecessary pieces. Tracking down the parts you need to repair a phone isn’t easy, and for most people, it certainly isn’t fun.

 

  1. You Have to Work Slowly.

 

Life hack videos make it seem like everything is a snap, especially when they speed up the process of doing something. However, you will need to take your time when fixing your phone, working slowly to make sure you don’t make any mistakes.

 

  1. If You Do Make a Mistake, It’ll Be Harder to Fix.

 

Some technicians charge more when fixing a phone that a person has already tried to fix themselves. This is because it is possible that you might have made a mistake while trying to fix your device, which could make it harder for the professional later on.

Apple Doesn’t Want You Repairing Your iPad or iPhone

July 27th, 2017

You know the story: while many states are creating legislation that allows you to fix your iPhone or other devices yourself, Apple (and other big companies like it) is vehemently fighting against it. So why doesn’t Apple want you repairing your device?

Revenue

One of the major reasons is the one most consumers already know. Apple doesn’t want you to repair your phone yourself because they want you to either by a new phone or have your phone repaired at one of their designated repair centers. Either way, they make some money. Though there are other reasons involved, most people are hung up on this one because of our issues as a nation with the idea of corporate greed. However…

Lawsuits and Bad Press

Apple is also concerned about the idea that people will sue them if they try to fix their phones or iPads themselves and experience a severe accident. Whether it’s breaking the phone’s glass and getting a shard of it in the face or getting electrocuted while monkeying around with a device, Apple is worried that, if too many people do this, it will look bad for their company. They can always fight lawsuits claiming customers were told not to try to fix their devices themselves, but having enough of these pile up will just be embarrassing—let alone expensive to deal with.

Repairs Made Simple

In addition, if Apple had to give users all the tools and information necessary to fix their phones, it would be expensive and time consuming. When the company explains how to fix an iPhone to one of their technicians, they can use complicated terms or instructions without much detail, both of which would confuse a layman just trying to fix their device. They would have to put a lot more effort into explaining how to fix these products to individuals who don’t do it for a living, especially because of the compactness and delicateness of their products.

Why Doesn’t Apple Want You to Fix Your Device?

It’s simply because, in the long run, it will make things harder on them and because it throws too many variables into the mix. Sometimes, fixing a phone or an iPad yourself can even be dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. In these cases, taking it to a professional is often the best course of action.

Fixing Your Phone With Common Household Items

July 20th, 2017

There are actually plenty of ways you can make a quick fix to your phone with simple household items. You’d be surprised how fast some of the common problems you may notice with your phone can be solved in a snap.

Earpiece Too Quiet?

If your phone’s earpiece seems too quiet and you aren’t able to hear your calls coming through, it could just be an issue of stray lint. By rubbing a pencil eraser gently over the speaker, you can often remove lint and other small items and go back to getting quality sound.

Worried About Your Phone Cord Fraying?

iPhone charger cords are notorious for fraying and exposing the wires within. A great way to prevent this issue from happening to yours is to take the spring out of a pen you’re no longer using and to wrap it carefully around the part of the cord that bends the most (usually the part nearest to the end).

Drop Your Phone in Water?

Many people will tell you to try the trick with a bag of rice, but what works even better is putting your phone in one of those bags of silica gel that often comes stuffed inside the pockets of a new coat or inside a box of shoes. The silica will dry up your phone much faster.

Need to Change Your SIM Card?

You can do it yourself without the aid of expensive tools sold online. All you need is a paperclip, and you can just slide the card in and out.

Got a Problem Household Items Can’t Solve?

Call us for a free diagnostic session and to find out if you may need more help getting your phone fixed. We are trained and professional and will get your phone back to you within 24 hours.

You Can’t Upgrade a Shattered Phone

July 13th, 2017

Unfortunately, a phone with a shattered screen can’t be upgraded the way a pristine, unbroken phone can. However, you do have an alternative: bring your phone to us for a quick screen replacement before getting your upgrade.

Phone Companies Won’t Upgrade Shattered Phones

It’s true. Though they will tell you it’s absolutely easy to upgrade when the time comes, most phone companies will not give you your upgrade if they can’t turn around and resell your phone. This is usually the case when a phone’s screen is shattered, even if the phone itself still works. In essence, your phone company is unlikely to give you something brand new when you turn in something broken.

In addition, most insurance companies will charge more than the phone is worth in order to replace your screen. This is because most people do not realize they can get their phone screens replaced—quickly and easily—in a store like ours.

Get Your Phone Screen Replaced with Us

If you want to be able to upgrade your phone with your phone company but can’t because the screen is broken, bring your device to us. We will take a look at it and give you a free diagnostic session to determine if anything else is wrong. Then, after you give the go-ahead, we will replace your phone screen with a new one and you will pay us for this simple procedure. While most insurance companies or manufacturers will charge a considerable amount to have the phone screen replaced, we will only charge you a nominal fee.

We will replace your phone screen within 24 hours, which will allow you to get your phone back in no time. Then, you can always take your phone to the phone company and get your upgrade. Because your screen will be brand new, the phone company won’t have any issues reselling your old phone and will therefore honor your contract for an upgrade. This is one of the quickest and easiest ways you can still get the upgrade you seek when you have a shattered phone screen—not to mention the cheapest.

Call Today to Get Your Screen Repaired

We will replace your screen today and get your phone back to you within 24 hours. Just call or stop by, or we can come to you! No matter what, we will get your phone screen replaced and help you get your upgrade.
