Summer iPhone Protection Tips

May 19th, 2015

iphone repairSummer is approaching. This means people will be outside more than the rest of the year. The may spend time at the beach, pool, or just hanging out on an outdoor deck at their favorite restaurants. With all of the activities that often happen during the summer months, we often see an increase in the number of iPhone repairs we receive. We’d like to share the reasons for those repairs and provide some tips on how you can keep your phone safe.

The Most Common iPhone Repairs

The most common iPhone repairs that we see in the summer are:

  • Screen cracks
  • Water damage

Since we like to ask about the story behind the damage to make sure we don’t miss any other problems with the phone, we often hear that they either dropped their device on concrete or in the pool.

This leads us to the obvious iPhone protection tips we want to remind you about:

Keep the protective cover on your iPhone.

Don’t hold your iPhone when you have other things in your hands.

Keep your iPhone far away all water (pools, oceans, ponds, slip n’ slides, etc.).

We love our iPhone as much as you do, so we know you don’t want to be without it for any time. This is why you may want to look into a waterproof cover for it. They have special containers that won’t allow water into them to protect the contents inside. These are perfect for water parks, but you can use them at any time.

Do What You Can and Call iResQ

Sometimes, you just can’t prevent damage to your phone. You may think you’re being so careful, but the next minute, it’s laying on the ground. Don’t stress over it. That’s why we’re here for you. We provide you certified technicians that know what they are doing, no matter what is wrong with you phone. That way you can get your device back quickly working and looking as good as new.

Check out our list of iPhone repairs to find the one you need when you need it. We have 24 hour service and flexible shipping plans. Low prices guarantee for high quality parts and service!

Repair Your Phone or Choose Verizon Edge?

May 5th, 2015

Many people are choosing the Verizon Edge program these days. This program allows people to turn in their phones before their two year contract is up. The only catch is that they need to pay for the program every month. So they may have to pay $50 a month of the new phone they get, and whenever they want to upgrade, they go in and do it.

While this may seem like a great deal, Verizon has to make money somehow. They wouldn’t have this program if it’s didn’t end up giving them more money in the end.

With Verizon Edge, it may seems great that you get to pay a monthly cost rather than the $200 price of a new phone when you upgrade, but if you think about it, you’re spending way more than that with the Edge program. If the phone you choose comes along with a $50 monthly fee, you will be at the $200 upgrade cost of the phone in just 4 months. What that means is that you pay for the phone many times over – how is that a deal?

The Better Deal

We completely understand what it feels like to have a new phone. We love our tech toys too. However, there’s something about being able to keep the one you’ve invested in two years or more. Everything is on that device, and it’s familiar to you. That can be really nice!

Since the device is vulnerable to damage, don’t think you have to trade it in when you crack it or something else happens to it. You can always have iResQ repair it for you. After our certified technicians repair it, it will look as good as new.

So before you decide to do the Edge program, consider keeping what you have and just using our repair services for your iPhone, Samsung, or other phone you have right now. You’ll save a lot of money and time trying to learn a new device.

Why It’s Better to Repair Your Device Sooner Than Later

April 23rd, 2015

repair your deviceMany people will wait weeks or even months before they decide to repair their device. This goes for iPads, tablets, smartphones, and iPhones. While the reasoning makes sense, the device still works when there’s a function that working or there’s a crack on it, but the risk is not worth it.

What Happens When You Wait to Repair Your Device

When you continue to use your device after it’s not working right, you risk something else not working because of that. Most of the functions in a device work together to enable you to do what you need to do. When one doesn’t work, another function may have to work harder or ineffectively.

For example, when you have water damage. Your speaker may go out, but what you don’t see is that the water has hit other mechanisms. At first, everything works fine, but after a while, you find that your Home button may not work, and then the touchscreen. As you can see, the problem just exacerbates.

The same thing happens with cracked screens. At first, a simple cracked screen may only mean a simple digitizer replacement, but after a while and more damage to the device, the LCD needs to be replaced.

The Cost of Waiting

What this all boils down to is that the longer you wait, the more damage occurs, and then the more money you have to pay to get it fixed. Instead of causing your device more damage and having to pay more for a repair, just get it fixed when it has one problem. It may seem inconvenient, but you’ll be glad you did.

Call us or find the repair you need here. We have a fast turnaround time, use quality parts, and have affordable prices. We’ll help you get the repairs you need, so you can protect your device from any further damage.

Should You Buy Your Kid an iPad?

April 7th, 2015

www.iresq.comWhen it comes to technology and kids, there are positives and negatives. After many years and millions of dollars spent, it has been found that with the proper guidance, education, and rules, technology is absolutely a benefit for children. If you have been deciding if you should buy your kid an iPad or not, then read on to find out why the iPad is a great investment in the growth and development of your mini-me.

Benefits of iPads to Kids

Kids of this generation are already hooked on the television. Would you rather have your kid learning on an iPad or learning from a TV? By getting an iPad for your kids thus replacing their TV hours as a parent you can dramatically improve upon what they are learning and who they’re learning it from.

Inappropriate Channels/TV Shows

From the perspective of a parent, TV has many channels that are considered harmful, yet the iPad has fewer harmful apps and you can even set it most times to not have any ads. That’s right, the iPad can be set for your kids to run commercial free.

Interactive Screen Time

The television is a passive device, if you are looking for something more interactive for your kids, get them the iPad. Now, instead of your kids sitting motionless on the couch in front of the television all evening, your kids can be playing games, drawing, solving puzzles, typing, and watching educational videos. The Apple iTunes Store has a humongous selection of educational books, games, apps, and videos for your children. iPad content can be controlled by parents. As long as the password is controlled only by the parents and unknown to the kids, parents maintain complete control over the content reviewed and played on the iPad.

Easier Customization

When you purchase an iPad, you can customize it for the age of the child that is going to be using it. I mean, do you really know what kids are watching on the television in their bedrooms at night? It is all too common for kids and teenagers to be watching programming that is not age appropriate.


In addition,  the iPad has one very distinct feature the TV does not have: portability.  Your kids can go outside and sit under a tree. They can leave the house and read a book with a friend on their iPad. Speaking of, the downfall to this is if your kid’s iPad ends up with a cracked screen or broken screen.

Keeping It Functional for Longer

There is a proactive approach to this problem by ensuring you buy an iPad protector to keep it safe in the little one’s hands. If the screen is broken or cracked,  our iResQ certified technicians can have your screen replaced and back in your kid’s hands in no time at all.

Take control of your kid’s downtime by getting them an iPad. If anything ever happens to it, know they we are here to take care of any problems that may happen to it.
