5 Phone Repair Myths You Don’t Want to Get Sucked Into
In this day and age, it’s hard to find someone who’s never broken, cracked, or dropped their smartphone in a toilet. While pretty much everyone has had a problem with their phone at least once that could be solved with a simple repair, there are still myths about phone repair businesses circulating and making people second guess the idea of taking their broken phone to a professional.
Myth #1: I Can Just Get a New Phone.
While people who have had their phones stolen should consider getting a new device, those with cracked screens or another minor issue will often find that it’s much cheaper to have their phone repaired rather than paying to replace the entire thing.
Myth #2: I Can Repair My Phone Myself.
Not a good idea. Most people wind up causing much worse damage by trying to fix their phones at home, and the DIY screen fixing kits sold on the Internet can sometimes be upwards of $200 apiece.
Myth #3: My Buddy Can Fix My Phone for Me.
Also not a good plan. If you ask a friend to repair your phone, there’s a good possibility they won’t know what they’re doing. They could potentially fry your device or cause even more problems, which could put you in a worse predicament than before. And is it really worth losing a friend just to save a couple bucks?
Myth #4: If I Get My Phone Repaired, I Won’t Be Able to Resell It.
This is untrue. Most carriers will work with you if you’ve had your phone repaired in the past, and you should still be able to resell it, even if it has been repaired. In addition, a working, undamaged phone is more likely to fetch a higher price than a cracked or broken phone that has never been repaired.
Myth #5: It’ll Take Forever to Get My Phone Back.
It usually doesn’t take long at all for a phone to be repaired or a screen to be replaced. In many cases, same-day service is an option, and most customers don’t have to wait more than an hour or two before they get their phones back.
