Why Won’t My iPhone Connect to Wifi?  

Thursday, August 10th, 2017

It’s usually a good idea to connect your phone to a wifi network when you’re in range of one you can trust. This way, you won’t be using up all your data and you can get to where you’re going faster. However, sometimes our phones just won’t connect to the wifi network, even if we have the right password. So what’s up?  

Make Sure Your Wifi Is On  

When you try to connect to your wifi network on your phone, make sure you have your wifi settings turned on. Your phone won’t be able to find the network if its settings are off.  

Check Your Router 

Once you’ve checked to make sure you put in the right password, try checking your wireless router. Make sure it is turned on and that you are within the necessary range of the router itself. You may even want to turn it off and then on again. Sometimes, the problem is just that simple.  

Update Your Operating System  

You may be having trouble because your phone’s operating system isn’t up to date. You can check this by going into your settings and seeing if an update is available. If it is, it’s just a matter of waiting until the system updates. Then you can try connecting to the wifi again.  

Reset Your Network Settings  

This is another option you can use to fix the issue of connecting to your wifi network, especially if the option to click on the network is grayed out on your phone. Go into your settings and under general and reset, you’ll find an option to reset your network settings. This will also reset your saved passwords for any wifi networks, so make sure you have the password on hand when you’re ready to try reconnecting.  

My Phone Still Won’t Connect 

If you’re still having trouble connecting to wifi, it could be a bigger problem than these quick fixes can solve. Bring your phone to us, or let us come to you, and we’ll find out what the problem is.  

We will give your phone a free diagnostic test where we will let you know exactly what is wrong with it and what our repairs will entail. Then we will fix your device and have it back to you within 24 hours of when you first brought it to us. Now that’s a fast solution.

Why You Should Never Try to Fix a Cracked Screen Yourself

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

So you dropped your phone, and now the screen is cracked. You may be thinking to yourself that you could save a lot of money by replacing the screen at home. After all, it would be much cheaper than buying a new phone right?

Though you may be a totally capable fixer when it comes to household projects or cars, it’s important to always see a professional when it comes to fixing a cracked phone screen.

Why Do I Need a Professional to Replace My Screen?

Trust us. We know there are about a thousand YouTube videos out there telling you it’s easy to replace a cracked phone screen and that you can DIY the whole thing, saving you money and time. But the truth is, this type of easy-fix isn’t the safest option.

  • If you try to replace your phone screen yourself, you could potentially fry the phone, crack the screen even more, or make a hundred other mistakes that could damage your device more than it already was.
  • Working on a broken phone is meticulous and requires a steady hand. Usually people who don’t have any experience with this kind of work make mistakes.
  • Life hacks are great and all, but using tools you have around the house to fix your phone just won’t cut it. Most people don’t have the necessary tools to replace a phone screen anyway, and buying them is just an unnecessary expense. Plus, unless you break your phone screen constantly, would you really want to buy something you won’t need more than once?
  • What’s more, repair kits you can buy to fix your phone at home are often more expensive than taking it to a professional. And at least with the latter, you know it’ll be done right.

You may be thinking the easier option would be to just fix your phone at home, but in truth, it is actually cheaper, faster, and safer to have a professional fix your cracked screen for you. There’s no research required on your end and you can feel satisfied knowing your smartphone is in good hands.

Got a Cracked Screen?

If your cell phone screen is cracked, let us fix it for you. Your initial diagnostic is free, and we will get your phone back into your hands as soon as possible and as good as new. Call today.

5 Phone Repair Myths You Don’t Want to Get Sucked Into

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

In this day and age, it’s hard to find someone who’s never broken, cracked, or dropped their smartphone in a toilet. While pretty much everyone has had a problem with their phone at least once that could be solved with a simple repair, there are still myths about phone repair businesses circulating and making people second guess the idea of taking their broken phone to a professional.

Myth #1: I Can Just Get a New Phone.

While people who have had their phones stolen should consider getting a new device, those with cracked screens or another minor issue will often find that it’s much cheaper to have their phone repaired rather than paying to replace the entire thing.

Myth #2: I Can Repair My Phone Myself.

Not a good idea. Most people wind up causing much worse damage by trying to fix their phones at home, and the DIY screen fixing kits sold on the Internet can sometimes be upwards of $200 apiece.

Myth #3: My Buddy Can Fix My Phone for Me.

Also not a good plan. If you ask a friend to repair your phone, there’s a good possibility they won’t know what they’re doing. They could potentially fry your device or cause even more problems, which could put you in a worse predicament than before. And is it really worth losing a friend just to save a couple bucks?

Myth #4: If I Get My Phone Repaired, I Won’t Be Able to Resell It.

This is untrue. Most carriers will work with you if you’ve had your phone repaired in the past, and you should still be able to resell it, even if it has been repaired. In addition, a working, undamaged phone is more likely to fetch a higher price than a cracked or broken phone that has never been repaired.

Myth #5: It’ll Take Forever to Get My Phone Back.

It usually doesn’t take long at all for a phone to be repaired or a screen to be replaced. In many cases, same-day service is an option, and most customers don’t have to wait more than an hour or two before they get their phones back.

Smartphone Repair for Businesses: We Come to You

Friday, March 17th, 2017

mobile iphone repairFrom time to time we all have a problem with our Smartphone or iPhone.  Your callers cannot hear you or you cannot hear them.  Maybe you can’t make outgoing calls, or can’t receive them.  It is definitely an inconvenience for individuals, but it can mean lost revenue for a company.  Imagine the convenience of not having to take time from important business matters to take your phone out to be serviced.  We think we have an answer to help if you find yourself in this situation.

Just a Phone Call Away

Using a Smartphone or iPhone Repair Business

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

iphone crackedThere aren’t too many people in the world today who aren’t the proud owners of some sort of smartphone. With the technology advanced society that we live in today, owning a smartphone has become a basic need for everyone. The truth is that regardless of what kind of smartphone you own, after a period of time something always goes wrong with it. Whether it be the infamous cracked screen or some critical function just crashed, whatever the case, you are going to need help with repairs and quick because nobody really likes to go a minute without having access to their phone.

So now comes the time where you have to make a decision as to who you will use to repair your phone and you are seriously considering the mobile repair business as opposed to a standard repair shop, and for good reason. The mobile repair service saves you time and money because it accommodates by coming to where ever you are, which in turn, saves you the time of traveling to a standard repair shop and saves you some gas money, as well.

Another benefit of using a mobile repair business is that you basically cut the costs of repairs in half when you use this service. The manufacturer and mobile carrier’s repair services have always been known to be higher than something like a kiosk or the mobile repairs because it’s their products and the original replacements of phone parts cost more than aftermarket parts. Therefore, it would make sense for the manufacturers and mobile carriers to charge more for their repair services.

When dealing with standard repair businesses you may have to endure the daunting experience of calling to schedule an appointment to be seen and you could be on hold for quit sometime because a lot of people use the standard repair business. This also means that it could be awhile before they can fit you in their schedule to repair your phone. This is usually not the case when you deal with the mobile repair service, they allow you the convenience of scheduling a service date and time online and around your schedule.

That type of service would be considered superb because the customer is everything to a business and the idea of giving them control of the whole customer experience is a genius concept that won’t ever fail and helps to both gain and retain customers.
