When your phone breaks, it sometimes feels like the whole world stops until you can get it fixed again. (It sounds like an exaggeration, but in many ways, it’s true.) Instead of searching for some place you can take your phone on your lunch break or before work, why don’t you let us come to you?
When you have a business that comes to you in order to repair your phone, you won’t have to inconvenience yourself and you’ll be in the comfort of your own home or office while it’s being fixed. How great is that? We will repair your phone right where you are so you won’t have to leave or go anywhere without it.
Needing to have your phone fixed can add a whole extra element of frustration to your day-to-day life, especially when it comes to finding a time when you can leave work or home to get it done. But you won’t have to worry about that with us: we will come to you either at your office, at home, or somewhere else so you won’t have to fit us in at a time that isn’t convenient for you.
Whether you’ve got multiple devices at your business or your kids’ phones are on the fritz just like yours, we can fix multiple phones at the same time when we come to you. This means you won’t have to find a time where everyone can come into our store; we’ll show up and you can show us the issue. Being able to travel to you even makes it easier to fix multiple devices with the same problem because we can see them all together at one time.
Whether your phone is a business or a personal device, we know not having it can leave you behind on your daily tasks. What’s more, coming into the store can put you even farther behind in your schedule. So instead, let us come to you, fix your phone, and give it back to you the same day so you won’t have to miss any more of your activities than you have to.
Just call today and tell us the problem. Then we can set up a time and place where it would be most convenient for us to meet you and fix your device.

We can ensure your iPad is in the best hands when it comes to fixing screens, replacing batteries, or anything else with which you may need help. We offer free diagnostic sessions, and if you decide to have your device fixed at our location, we will draw up a plan to ensure that you know how much your repairs will cost and when you can expect your device back. It is our guarantee that we will have an iPad with a smashed screen back to you, good as new, within 24 hours.
Indeed it is. We know how important it is to have your device back as soon as possible, and we’ve all gone through the agony of not having our phones or iPads ready when we needed them. Therefore, we strive to make sure all clients receive their devices within a full day of their decision to have it repaired with us; that is our promise to you.
Though you may have the know-how—or at least a helpful video on YouTube—it isn’t likely your device is fixable within the allotted time frame if you try to do it yourself. First of all, buying the materials to fix a broken screen is usually a hassle, and you will likely have to wait a while for the new screen to be delivered to you anyway. Then, with the possibility that you could make a mistake and create a worse problem than the one you started with, fixing it yourself isn’t exactly the best or the easiest option.
It certainly won’t be the fastest, as we’ve got screens for all manner of devices (including iPads) in stock and professional technicians who have fixed more shattered screens than they can count. That adds up to a fast fix you can expect within 24 hours of bringing your device to us.
We are happy to do a free diagnostic and to take a look at your iPad screen. Afterwards, we can let you know how much the repairs will be and get your device back to you as quickly as possible.

When you start having problems with your iPhone battery, it can be difficult to determine for certain if your phone just needs a cleaning of excess, battery-draining applications or if you require an actual battery replacement. Here are some tips.
Plenty of things can go wrong with your battery during the time in which you’re using your iPhone. For example, there have currently been many iPhone customers experiencing sudden and mysterious shutdowns, a problem recently found to be connected with the battery of these devices. In addition, people constantly experience issues with a quickly draining battery, an inability for a battery to charge, and numerous other problems. But how can you know if your predicament means you need a new iPhone battery?
In some cases, a new battery isn’t necessary. You phone might not hold a charge because you keep too many apps open during the day or because your phone hasn’t been “cleaned” in a while. There are a number of articles that will tell you how to get rid of battery-draining and unnecessary information on your phone, as well as several apps that will clean your iPhone for you.
In addition, your phone may not be charging because your lightning connector needs to be replaced or because the charging port in your phone isn’t responding to the charger. However, there are ways to tell that your battery is actually the culprit when it comes to your phone issues.
If this describes your situation, it is likely your phone’s battery is the real problem and that you may need to have it replaced so you can continue using your device.

It has happened to all of us: you plug in your phone to charge and it just… won’t. You tell yourself it’s probably the outlet, and you try plugging it in at different spots, even into your computer. But when you try to charge your phone everywhere you can think of and it still won’t come back to life, you may need to get your lightning connector itself replaced.
If your phone won’t charge anywhere––no matter what outlet or computer you plug it into––it’s likely your charger’s lightning connector that is the culprit. This is the 8-pin connector that is on the smaller side of your charger cable, the one you plug into your phone. This little device is sturdy but can break down just like any other important connector, and there’s a real possibility you’ll need a replacement if your phone won’t charge.
Having your lightning connector replaced is much easier and cheaper than having the charging port in your phone replaced, which is why we suggest looking into this option before you consider if it might be your phone itself. Many times, the lightning connector is the issue and it doesn’t take much effort at all to fix the problem: the connector––or the entire charging cord itself––just needs to be replaced instead of something more expensive like your phone’s charging port.
We have plenty of lightning cables in stock that you can purchase for a minimal price in order to get your phone charging again. When you bring us an issue, the diagnostic itself is free, so we can determine if your only problem is needing a new lightning cable and then sell you another one for a nominal fee. Trust us, it’s best to find out if your only issue is the cable itself rather than attempting to monkey around with your phone and, potentially, make problems a whole lot worse.
Don’t try to fix it at home via an unreliable life hack: let our team of professionals take a look at your device and determine the issue. Then you can decide if you’d like us to draw up a payment plan and begin fixing your phone or just sell you a new connector. Call today to learn more about your options.

This statement is false. It’s completely inaccurate to say an iPhone repair is expensive. It all depends on what needs to be fixed and the model of the iPhone. The majority of screen repairs are done for less than what a replacement or new iPhone would cost. Most all repairs come in for a cost lower than purchasing a new iPhone.
Since I have insurance, I’ll just use it to get a new replacement iPhone.
This is not a great assumption to have about your iPhone insurance. Now if you are actually missing your iPhone because it was stolen or lost, then of course a replacement phone through your insurance carrier makes perfect sense. But, if your iPhone is damaged from dropping it, then check first about your deductible and what it covers before acting. Many times the deductible is much more costly than just having the repairs done alone. Another thing to keep in mind is that a ‘replacement’ can refer to either a refurbished replacement or a brand new replacement. Check with your company to see whether you are getting a brand new replacement or the refurbished version of a broken iPhone someone else turned in as damaged.
Only certified Apple technicians or the manufacturer can fix my iPhone.
False. False. False. Apple has successfully convinced a mass group of iPhone consumers that their company is the only place qualified to repair iPhones. This is not true, as there are numerous qualified, experienced professional iPhone repair technicians that work for themselves and cell repair companies all over the world. Many times these companies provide excellent service in a faster turnaround time than Apple may offer.
Why should I pay to fix my iPhone when I can repair it at home myself?
DIY is nothing new and YouTube only adds to the excitement of fixing things at home to save money and time. But not everything should be a do it yourself project, and one of these things includes iPhone repair. Now it’s definitely not unheard of to go ahead and attempt simple iPhone repairs, but what do you do if things go bad? Practice makes perfect is a phrase we have all heard, so it makes sense that newbies and inexperienced technicians will make mistakes that are more expensive to repair than the original issue. Don’t experiment with this costly road…take your iPhone to a reputable cell phone repair shop to get your repairs done right the first time around.
