Many times, we are faced with the choice of getting a broken phone fixed or selling it to a friend or on Craigslist in order to get the money for a new one. But the former choice is always going to be much easier than the latter, and we promise if you bring your phone to us, we will fix it quickly, easily, and for a nominal fee.
Providers often refuse to take phones for trade in that have cracked screens or other issues. Because of this, they cannot resell the phone. However, if you choose to come to us and have your phone repaired, you will be able to trade it in to your provider easily. We fix phones quickly and make them as good as new so that you can either continue to use them or turn them in to get a better option from your provider. It’s as simple as that!
When you decide to sell your phone to someone else on Craigslist or a similar site, you have to price it yourself, make the individual aware of any cracks or scratches, and, in many cases, travel to where the individual lives just for them to get a look at your device. After all this, the person could still turn down your phone. It’s a frustrating activity, and it’s much easier to just have your phone repaired.
Many people are looking for the best deal possible, so it isn’t likely you’ll make a profit when you try to sell your phone online. Instead, the best way to know you’re getting a good deal is to have it fixed by a professional. This way, you’ll be able to do whatever works for you: turn your phone in for an upgrade or keep your newly fixed device.
We offer a free diagnostic test to every customer when they come in with a broken phone, tablet, computer, etc. This means we determine what the problem is and let the customer know how much it will cost. Then, with your permission, we fix your device within 24 hours of you bringing it in. This makes the whole process much easier than waiting on someone else to buy your broken phone.
Call today to make an appointment for us to come to you or just stop by!

Though maybe not as pretty as some of the flimsier options, it’s a good idea to get a strong, heavy case for your phone if you are concerned about damage. Many of these cases are sold at your providers and online, and some of the most durable (while expensive) can save you from many accidental drops and other issues that would normally cause serious damage to your device.
Some of these barely protect your screen from dents and bruises, but the majority will keep your phone screen from cracking if you happen to drop your device. Most providers carry screen protectors and will put them on your phone for you for free, which makes things a lot easier.
It sounds like an old wives’ tale at this point, but putting your phone in a bag of rice after it gets dropped in water really does work. In some cases, it might just work to revive your phone long enough to get all the data onto an undamaged device, but this is a way to protect your phone from sustaining the serious damage associated with dropping it in water.
Be conscious of your phone when you’re using it. Hold it firmly and try not to place it on your knee or somewhere else precarious where it is likely to fall. Make sure you treat your phone carefully. We all can be a little cavalier sometimes, but these devices are expensive, and we’d do well to remember that.
Make sure you always check your pocket for your phone when you are leaving somewhere and that you know where your device is at all times. Many people lose their phones in an instant because they just weren’t paying attention. Unfortunately, this is often more serious than just general damage because you’ll lose all your data unless it’s backed up.
Bring it to us. We will do a free diagnostic and then fix your phone within 24 hours. This way, you will get your device back fast and good as new.

Children often don’t realize the expense and importance of their very first cell phone, but hey, adults break theirs all the time too, right? Let us fix their device quickly and easily so you can go back to worrying about the important things.
It happens. One minute, you’re watching your eight-year-old play with their brand new cell phone innocently on the couch, the next, they’ve cracked the entire screen and don’t seem to understand how they did it. Whether they dropped it in the toilet, ran over it with their bike, or accidentally blew it up, we’ve seen it all.
This isn’t a reason to avoid giving your kid a phone. We understand that, in this day and age, it’s important for children to have these devices in case of an emergency and even because most children do have them. But because it’s common for kids to break things, you may be unsure of what to do in the event of one of these disasters. The easiest thing you can do is bring it to us.
We want to help you get your child’s phone fixed as quickly and as easily as possible. This means you can come to us, or you can call and make an appointment so we can come to you. Whatever you choose, we have plenty of options to allow you to fit a consultation with one of our technicians easily into your day.
Once you meet up with our technician, they will give your child’s device a quick and free diagnostic. They will let you know what’s wrong with the phone and how much it’ll be to fix it. (Trust us, this is usually a much cheaper option than getting a new one, and most providers won’t take a cracked or broken device as a trade in.) Once you decide to have the phone fixed with us, we will repair it in 24 hours or fewer and get it back to you as good as new. Life with kids can be hectic, and we want to do all we can to make things that much easier.

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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
