Cell phones have definitely become a staple in our lives. The statistics are astounding, there are more than six billion cell phone subscriptions on earth. That’s almost a cell phone for every human being in the world today. What’s even more amazing is that this growth took just a little over 20 years to happen. Because of this growth our dependence on cell phones have also increased. We hardly go anywhere without them. They have become as much a part of our lives as our clothes, cars, and other necessities in our lives. Since cell phones have become so important in our lives, we depend upon them a great deal. That means when they break, repairing them becomes as important as getting our cars fixed. This has resulted in a tremendous growth in the cellphone repair service industry. In fact, the need to repair cell phones has created this new service industry.
Many cell phone repair services are located in shopping centers or operated by small business owners working out of their homes. The service provided includes repairing most types of phones, including iPhones, Samsungs, and most other smartphones in less than an hour. The most common service provided is repairing a cracked screen, but other issues are also addressed. Since the cellphone repair service industry has grown so rapidly, there are some things we should consider when searching for the right repair service. One of the biggest problems or complaints people have when getting their cellphone repaired is the level of experience and skill of the technician.
Just like you wouldn’t take your vehicle to any car repair service without first making sure they are qualified or getting a recommendation from someone, the same needs to be applied when looking for a cellphone repair service. Make sure the technician is qualified and has taken courses, been trained and certified in repairing cellphones. Be sure they are using quality parts. Replacing phones with shoddy or defective parts will only frustrate you more when your phone breaks down in a couple of weeks again. Our cellphones have become a necessity in our lives, so make sure you trust the repair technician to do the job you’re paying him or her to do. The worse thing to happen is to end up paying more in the long run because someone was inexperienced or used the wrong parts or used defective parts when fixing your cellphone.
Our technicians have been trained and have experience working on mobile devices. You can trust iResQ to repair your phone, tablet or MacBook the right with high quality parts.

When a device has touch disease, it becomes unresponsive to touch. For instance, when you go to tap on your favorite app, it will not open. No matter what you do, it will not respond to your touch.
This issue has been brought up to Apple many times, but they are hesitant to admit to the problem. Even after having a class-action lawsuit brought against them, they are not coming forward with a public acknowledgement for the faulty screens.
The touch disease issue is not one that only a couple people have experience. It’s already accounted for as much as 11 percent of Apple store repairs. This is a rate already higher than other types of repairs – yes, even cracked screens.
Touch disease often starts with a gray bar across the screen. After a short time, users report the screen become unresponsive to touch. Experts believe it may have something to do with the logic board on the device. When the device is taken out of the pocket, dropped, or slightly bent in some other way, the logic board malfunctions.
Contact Apple immediately if you believe you are experiencing “touch disease.” They will fix it or replace depending on whether they are able to return it to original functioning.

The choice of phone you use may be indicative of your personality more than you think. Scientists recently found that Android users are much more humble, kinder and honest than their rivals – iPhone users.
In the study, people in two groups (iPhone users and Android users) completed a questionnaire. Each question related to their personality. iPhone users most often chose responses that weren’t as kind, humble and honest as Android users did.
In addition to the personality questionnaire, the research team analyzed the apps each user downloaded and used. There was a clear discrepancy between what iPhone users downloaded and what Android users did.
What’s interesting is that you would think more women who fall under the humble, kind, and honest category, but actually, they were more likely to own an Apple. Men are more like to have Android phones, and well, they fell into the group with people who are more humble, kind and honest.
In addition to these personality traits, it seems as though iPhone users are more extroverted as well. I guess that does make sense, since iPhone users do tend to talk a big game about their choice in smartphone.
It’s obvious our phones are a big part of us, and we’re going to make decisions based on our likes and dislikes with each type of phone. What do you believe is true of your smartphone as it relates to your personality? It is something interesting to consider, isn’t it?
