When most people have a cracked screen or broken device, they turn to the Internet to find the closest place to fix it. They have more trust in the local iPhone repair shop than any other place because it’s familiar to them, but is it always the best choice to have your device fixed? At iResQ, we don’t think so, and here’s why.
Many people who have replaced an iPhone screen believe they are an expert in repairing all devices. The problem is that not every device is the same and not every fix is the same. An iPhone is different from a Galaxy, and a Nexus is different from an iPhone. One crack on an iPhone can be much different from a crack on another iPhone. Same goes for iPods, iPads, and more. Treating every case the same could end up troubling to the owner because he may end up with a device that doesn’t function the way they would expect it to when they get it back.
To keep costs low, many iPhone repair shops purchase generic parts. As you already know, generic is usually replicas of original parts, and they are sometimes lower in quality. When you have your device repaired with low quality parts, you may end up with a broken device in just a few months. With high quality parts, you receive a device back with the same integrity as you purchased it new.
Since brick and mortar iPhone repair shops receive a lot of business from locals, they have to push repairs out as soon as possible. This can sometimes mean they don’t take the time to care for customers as they should. Yes, it doesn’t make much sense since reputation is everything in business. But when you are one of the only repair shops in town, many people think they don’t have a choice. Luckily, that is simply not true.
At iResQ, our technicians are certified. What does it mean to be certified? To become certified, our technicians received extensive training on how to fix broken iPhones, iPads, iPods, and more. They are supervised by more experienced technicians until they become just as skilled as they are.
All of the parts iResQ orders are of the highest quality possible. We don’t believe in low quality parts just to get repairs out at the lowest cost possible. We want to ensure that your device ends up back in your hands as good as it was when you first put it in your hands.
Finally, iResQ goes above and beyond to ensure you are pleased with our service. We send you an email when we receive your device; we email you when we start working on your device, and when your device is repaired and being shipped. If there is a problem with your order, we will take care of it. There’s a reason why we have hundreds of positive reviews all over the Internet. We are committed to our customers’ satisfaction!
So, as you’re searching for a local place to get your broken iPhone, iPad, iPod, or any other device you have, consider online iPhone repair shop iResQ. We provide a quick turnaround just like the local shops, and our prices are often much less than theirs are. We look forward to serving you as a customer of iResQ.

When something goes wrong with your device, it can be difficult to decide whether you should bother repairing it or replacing it with a new one. At iResQ, we want to repair every device that comes into our hands. However, that’s not always possible. Sometimes, we sadly have to report to the customer that the device is unsalvageable.
Since many people are hopeful they’ll receive their device as good as new when they get it back from us, we want to help people understand when devices are most likely unable to be repaired.
One of the only instances in which a device is unable to be repaired is if it suffers extreme water damage. When we say EXTREME, we mean that the entire inside of the phone has been saturated with water.
What would be an example of extreme water damage?
Dropping your iPhone into a bowl of water and leaving it there over night.
Dropping your iPhone in the toilet and immediately pulling it out is not an example of extreme water damage.
Most parts in an iPhone, iPad, etc. can be replaced without having to replace the entire device. These parts often cost much less than buying a new device. However, there’s one exception – if the logic board is toast.
If the logic board comes into contact with water and becomes corroded because of it, it could be a pricey repair. It means that the logic board has to be replaced and probably other parts. In this case, a total replacement is probably your best option.
Here’s the thing though:
You won’t know if the logic board is damaged unless you have someone experienced look at it for you. It’s not as easy as you think to get water to the logic board. It’s very protected with all of the other parts surrounding it. Yes, that means, even if your phone has been sitting in water for a while, it’s possible still cheaper to repair it than replace it because the water didn’t reach the logic board.
Instead of just throwing your device into the garbage and paying hundreds of dollars purchasing a new one, send it to us. We won’t charge you to have our certified technicians take a look at it. As soon as it arrives, we will open it up, and inspect all of the parts and logic board. If it’s repairable, we’ll give you a call and let you know how much it would be to repair it.
It’s likely it’ll be much cheaper than buying a new one, so you’ll probably just tell us to go ahead and fix it. However, if you need a new logic board and many other parts, we’ll tell you the truth and then you can decide if you want us to send it back to you, so you can move on to buying a new one.
We are a company that believes in saving people money. We don’t believe you should have to buy a new device if you don’t have to. With skilled technicians, we take pride in that we can repair almost any damaged device. Check out our free diagnostics now for more information.

iPads in schools are increasing in popularity. Teachers and school administrators have found the value in them in teaching lessons to students. The apps, Internet, and just basic computer skills are all beneficial to students.
At iResQ, we recognize that schools and iPads are important, so we have become a resource to schools everywhere. When iPads in schools break, whether it is a screen crack from a student dropping it or the battery life declines, we have certified technicians that can fix it.
The process for schools is quite simple. We have an easy ordering option on our website, which enables IT departments in schools to send broken iPads to us.
If it’s unknown what is wrong with the device, we encourage people to use our free diagnostic and quote option. Simply by choosing the free diagnostic, the school can send us the device for our certified technicians to review. Once they have identified the problem, which is within 48 hours of receipt, we contact the point of contact for the school with an explanation and quote for repair.
If the iPad has a cracked screen, dead battery, or other problem you do know of, simply choose that repair option on our website. You can then proceed to the secure checkout section for shipping options and confirmation.
We want schools to know that we take great pride in our services, and the most important part of providing iPad repair is complete satisfaction. For this reason, all of our repairs carry a 90-day warranty. We also have a 30-day refund policy.
As school ends for the year, review the iPads you currently have and let us know if we can help you get them ready for the new 2013-2014 year. In a few months, when school is back in session, let us know how we can help you keep iPads working efficiently, so your students can learn efficiently.
iResQ is here for schools and iPads!

Alec Baldwin walks onto an airplane…
I know — too easy. Most of you have probably heard about the American Airlines conflict yesterday when Alec Baldwin was kicked off a plane because he refused to turn his iPad off. If you haven’t seen the news yet, check it out here: Alec Baldwin latest celebrity to clash with airline
None of the articles I have read have confirmed what we all want to know: Did he have an iPad or iPad 2? Black or white? I know he was playing “Words with Friends” and tweeting, but that’s not enough info. We need details. I don’t know if Mr. Baldwin has dropped his iPad, but we’re ready to take care of him if he needs it.
That’s the only confirmed news I have for you today in the Apple world, and you didn’t come here for celebrity news or gossip so that will be the end of it.
Some random Thursday thoughts:
- The rumor mills are reporting that Apple is soon to release a line of televisions. I can’t wait to see how Apple changes that market next.
- Albert Pujols signed by the Angels.
- My college basketball team is in the top 10.
- The snow has started falling in KC, be careful out there!
Time to get back to work, thanks for reading!

Well, the iPhone 4S is finally here. Luckily the weather out here in Kansas City has been terrific so all of those avid iPhone lovers camping out didn’t have to bear through the heat of early summer. And guess what! iResQ is offering repairs on the iPhone 4S as of…..well, TODAY!! Check out our iPhone 4S Repair page when you get the opportunity. We are proud to be the first in the market to offer such repairs.
So… should you find yourself breaking your brand new iPhone 4S today, tomorrow, or any other day, you know where to go.
Moving on, let’s talk iOS 5. I tried installing that sucker the minute it was announced. No luck. Every time I would go to update my iPhone 4, the whole thing would stop when iTunes attempted connecting to the Apple servers. Makes sense, everyone was trying to do this at the same time. After a long night of band practice, I was finally able to install iOS 5 on my phone a little after midnight CST. Needless to say, I went to sleep without getting to mess around with the new iOS that much. No problem though. On Thursday I was able to test out all of the new features I had been looking forward to for quite a while. Let me tell you this, Notifications is awesome. I love it. I’m just about ready to induct it into the iPhone hall of fame. You’ll know what I am talking about when you get your hands on it. Another great thing with the the new iOS is the updated Camera App. Being able to access the camera from the lock screen saves me precious seconds. This doesn’t sound like much, but when you have a two-year old that is all over the place, those few fleeting seconds matter tremendously. One last thing not necessarily iOS 5 related, Scribblenauts!! Now iTunes has it for only $4.99. That sounds a bit high for an app, but the DS game was over $30. That’s a deal to me. I wanted to get this game for my Nintendo DS but never did. Don’t be fooled by the cartoony nature of the game, it may not be for everybody, but it’s awesome.
Well, the weather is beautiful, the Chiefs have a bye week coming off of two straight wins, and it’s Friday. I love it.
Talk to you later.
