Most of the repairs we perform are completed within an hour.
This is perfect for those of you who don’t want to be without your phone for hours when you have to drop it off at a shop. It’s also great for those who just want your phone fixed without the hassle of going anywhere.

The best way to know if we can help you with your device is to complete our mobile repair service request form. We will get in contact with you about it to schedule an appointment for us to come out to see you.

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.

Over the last couple of years, many schools have embraced the use of tablets in their classrooms. Teachers are finding they are a valuable teaching tool because of all the ways they can teach children about the concepts they are learning. Teachers aren’t the only ones who are excited about this new tool, children are too. This probably doesn’t surprise you much, but it is interesting to see that children really do want to use their tablets for more than just playing around.
Technology Use in Schools
Harris Interactive is an educational publisher for Pearson. They often survey students around the nation on different topics pertaining to teaching and learning. In one study, they polled 2,300 American students up to grade 12 about digital technology in school.
The study revealed only one percent of the participants did not use mobile devices in the classroom. Seventy one percent reported they used laptops, while 66 percent identified desktops as their classroom technology.
Mobile devices such as smartphone and tablets are behind the computers, but they are still used regularly. About half of those surveyed say they use their smart phones either in school or at home to learn. Twenty one percent reported using tablets (iPad or Google Nexus 10), 23 percent used small tablets, 16 percent used e-readers, and 10 percent used netbooks.
As you probably can guess, use depends on grade level.
Technology use in schools for middle school students:
For high school students:
With the increased use of digital devices in the classroom, damage is bound to happen. If you’re a school looking to add laptops and tablets as teaching tools, consider using iResQ’s iPad and MacBook repair services for schools. We have account managers who work directly with schools to help them repair their devices for much less than they can with insurance companies. We also repair tablets and smartphones.

There aren’t too many people who sit with their MacBook and don’t have a drink nearby. It’s just one of those things that people do while they are working or just looking for entertainment. What’s also common is that sometimes drinks spill on a MacBook.
We know that you’ve had some choice words after spilling something on your MacBook. Your first instinct is to wipe or turn your device upside down and shake it. Turn it back around, look, and then shake it again. Then you may wipe it, hoping, wishing, and praying that it’s okay. You don’t need the keyboard to go out right now.
Unfortunately, water on a MacBook almost always leads to it shorting out. This means that either the whole keyboard doesn’t work or just certain keys don’t. Since you can’t do much typing when you’ve lost letters, you won’t be able to use it that much anymore.
Instead of running out and spending a couple thousand on a new one, we can fix it. Yes, it’s completely possible for us to repair your water damaged MacBook. Our certified technicians have repaired so many water damaged keyboards that they lost count. Each time they do repair one, they return it back to the owner working just as good as it did when he or she first bought it. That’s what you want, isn’t it?

Accidents can occur in an instant and cause MacBook keyboard issues that are costly to fix. Certain issues are unrelated to anything you have done. Check out the following for more information covering common complications that cause MacBook keyboards to malfunction.
Common sense dictates that you would keep liquids away from your laptop to avoid any spills. In actuality, damage to keyboards through liquid spills occur more frequently than other accidents. You know the scenario. You’re typing along, reach over to grab something, and knock your drink all over your keyboard. The best thing to do is to disconnect it from the power source and turn it off immediately. Hold the power button down to completely shut it down.
Newer models have internal batteries and do not allow you to pull out the battery. However, if you have a MacBook with a removable battery, then take it out. Dry off all the liquid with a towel. Flip it upside down and gently set it on a towel to allow any liquid to drip out from under the keys.
Use a fan or a blow dryer—without heat— to create airflow to aid in a faster drying time. Once it has had ample time (at least a couple of days) to dry, take it to the Apple store or to an Apple certified technician for analysis.
Unresponsive Keyboard and Track pad
Sometimes, the keyboard and track pad become completely unresponsive. If you have recently dropped or spilled liquid on your MacBook, this can cause this problem. However, often it is due to a malfunction in the hardware or age, and will need to be completely replaced.
Incidentally, some users need to use the functionality of Mouse Keys, which allows them to use the keyboard to control their pointer in OS X. Unfortunately; this renders your keyboard’s full features useless. If you inadvertently enable them, simply press the Option key five times to disable them.
A swollen MacBook battery will cause malfunctioning of the keyboard and track pad. Swollen batteries occur as a result of old age, manufacturing defects, and most often misuse. If you use the incorrect power cord or do not unplug your MacBook, then you run the risk of overcharging the battery. Batteries need an opportunity to drain; otherwise the battery may negatively react by producing heat. The gasses inside the battery expand, forcing the battery to swell. If you suspect you have a swollen battery, contact a MacBook repair shop immediately. They have the proper resources to safely remove and dispose of the battery.
