Batteries don’t last forever, and usually, they last much less time than you want them to. Charging your device over and over again causes the battery to hold less and less. It can get to the point where you aren’t able to use your device at all without having it plugged in – or at least close to it.
Since iPhones, iPads, smartphones, and tablets are meant to be MOBILE devices, you shouldn’t have to be a prisoner of the charging cord and outlet. It’s time to break free from it!
At iResQ, we specialize in battery replacements for mobile devices. We have high quality batteries for iPhones, iPads, smartphones and tablets. Simply choose the device you have and the battery replacement service for your device.
When we receive your device, we’ll take out the old battery, install the new one, and test it out for you. This is to ensure when you get your device back, you’ll be completely satisfied with the repair.
A new battery means you will be able to use your phone or tablet longer than an hour without charging it. Depending on how much you use your device throughout the day, you may be able to go a whole day or maybe even two days without charging it. You will be able to use it just as you did when you first bought it. Seems like a dream right now, right?
Order a battery replacement service for your MOBILE device now. You don’t need to buy a new phone or tablet because of the battery. You just need to buy a new battery from iResQ and have our certified technicians put it in for you. We believe in saving you money, and getting your phone or tablet to last longer in your hands versus buying a new one is one of the many ways we do that.
Contact us if you have any questions at all.

Some of our customers are fearful of using our services because they don’t us to steal their personal information. While we can tell you we are trustworthy and would never take your personal information, we know that’s not going to matter much to you. Instead, you probably will want to remove all of the personal information from your phone before sending it in to us.
The first thing to do is back up all of your information. You can do this with iTunes. Hook it up with the USB and have it do the backup. This way, when you get it back from us, you will be able to just hook up your phone again to get all of your data back on your phone.
Once you’ve backed up the iPhone or iPad, you can reset it.
Without your device connected to iTunes, tap the Settings icon. You should then see “General.” Tap on “General.”
Scroll all the way down and find “Reset.”
You will probably see “Erase All Content and Settings.” Tap on that.
You will need to put in your passcode, and then confirm you want to reset your device.
The device will begin erasing all of the data.
When the device starts up again, you will see that it starts just like a brand new one. You can then send it in to us worry free that there is any personal information on it.
When you receive your device back, all you have to do is hook it back up to iTunes and do a restore from back up. It won’t take too long, and you’ll be happy that you’re device is working as good as new AND you didn’t compromise your privacy.
Now that you know how to do this, go ahead and order your iPhone or iPad repair. We’re ready to fix whatever it is wrong with quickly, easily, and for a low price.

Having insurance on a high dollar piece of equipment makes sense. You want to ensure you can have it fixed without paying top dollar, if something happens to it.
However, is it the best investment of your money?
We say NO.
Have you ever thought about how much money you are sinking into insurance each year? Go ahead and figure it out…we will wait.
If you did it, you’ll see you’re spending THOUSANDS of dollars on the insurance.
How many of those iPads are actually needing service?
Unless your employees are highly irresponsible, it’s unlikely you’re spending a lot of money on repairs. You may only send out a few over the year, if that.
The ones you do send out to be repaired, you probably need to pay a deductible. Maybe a hundred….or two hundred dollars – right?
SO – not only are you paying thousands of dollars a year on insurance, but you’re still paying hundreds of dollars in deductibles.
That’s a lot of money you’re wasting.
Why? You could cut out the insurance, pay for the repairs outright through iResQ, and still end up spending WAY less money than you would with insurance.
iResQ has qualified technicians fixing iPad every single day. Most repairs only take 24 hours with our techs since they are so skilled and knowledgeable.
What’s even better is the cost of the repairs is affordable. For just a couple hundred dollars, you can have a screen replaced. Yes, for about the same amount of money you spent on the deductible, you can have the screen replaced and you don’t have to pay the insurance premiums you’re paying now.
See how you’re saving money?
Intrigued? Good, we hoped you would be – contact iResQ right now. We have a business representative waiting to speak with you about your iPads. We can give you all of the details needed to help you set up an account with us. It only takes a few minutes of your time, and since time is money, this call will be one that is well worth it.

Each year, it’s a good idea to review the expenses you have and what you can do to reduce them. As you are doing this, we would like to encourage you to take an in-depth look into your mobile device costs, as far as insurance goes.
Many schools and businesses pay for mobile device insurance. This insurance usually covers damages for iPhone, iPads, smartphones, tablets, and MacBooks. Premiums can be rather costly when you factor in all of the devices you have as part of your organizations.
The problem is that even though you pay for the insurance, you may never use it. When you do use it, you have a deductible. This deductible can be as much as the repair would cost without insurance.
Have you ever done the numbers to see how much a repair would cost without insurance? And then take the amount you’re paying for the premium and the deductible? It’s likely you will find the cost is much more than just paying for the repair outright when/if something happens.
You have many options when it comes to mobile device repair. Not all of them are the, though. At iResQ, we have some differences that will make you want to choose us as your repair shop.
Our prices are low for the high quality parts and certified techs we utilize for our repairs. Feel free to research our business to see how many satisfied customers we’ve had over the years. We would love to serve your repairs for much less money than insurance will cost.

Having one scratch or crack on your iPad screen can be just as frustrating as having the whole screen shattered. That small imperfection can just glare at you every time you use your iPad and make you want to scream. Luckily, some people have learned how to fix a cracked iPad screen with toothpaste!
This trick is only for iPads that have on small crack. You should do this if your screen is shattered or you have a huge gash in it.
What You’ll Need:
Start by placing the towel down on a table or other hard surface. Put the iPad on top of it face up.
Use the compressed air to blow off the dust. Wipe it with the soft cloth.
Squeeze a small amount of toothpaste onto the cotton swab. Wipe off any excess toothpaste by running your finger along the side of it.
Put the cotton swab onto the cracked and drag it across. Press down slightly to get into the crack, but not too hard that you crack the screen even more.
Throw the swab away once you’ve covered the crack.
Take the soft cloth and cover your pinky with it. Drab your pinky over the crack pressing slightly down. This will remove the extra toothpaste.
Examine the crack on the iPad. If you can still see it, go ahead and use the toothpaste on a new cotton swab again. You’ll need to also wipe it with the soft cloth again.
While you may have to do it a couple of times, you should eventually not see the crack anymore.
DO NOT use toothpaste that has a flavor added to it. This will have small bits in it that can scratch your screen as you are wiping it with the soft cloth.
Now that you know how to fix a cracked screen with toothpaste, go ahead and try it. It may just be what you need to keep you from having to replace the entire screen for just one, annoying scratch.
Do this at your own risk. We, of course, recommend having the screen repaired rather than using toothpaste because it returns full integrity to the device. If you try this, understand that you could cause additional scratches and cracks. Any repairs should be performed by qualified, experienced technicians.
We just wanted to offer this solution people have been talking about online in case anyone wanted to try it. Just understand the risks when trying it.
Let us know if you have any questions!
