So, you’ve just bought a brand-new Kindle, but you’re worried about it getting scratched up (or worse). You’re asking yourself if it’s worth it to buy a cover or if you should let your device fend for itself. Here is some expert advice on subject.
Like most devices, your Kindle will come without a cover or case. However, you can easily buy one when you purchase it, either at the Kindle store or through another retailer. In most cases, Kindles don’t actually need covers. Many people use them before bed to read or otherwise in the comfort of their own homes. Because they provide limited functionality and are only used in certain circumstances, most individuals can make do without another line of protection.
If you are the kind of person who experiences a lot of accidents—from water glasses getting knocked off the bedside table to cars inadvertently running over cell phones—you may want to purchase a cover after all. Kindles are just like most other technological devices in that they are expensive and fragile, and if you think you’re likely to experience an accident, it’s a good idea to have a cover to protect your purchase.
Other people may want to buy a cover because of where they are planning on taking their Kindles. If you want to go to the beach and read there, it is strongly recommended that you buy a cover, as your device could get a bellyful of sand otherwise. Give some thought to what you plan on doing with your Kindle as well as what you think could potentially befall it.
Whether it fell in the pool or it’s got a big scratch, the best thing you can do is to take your device to professionals like us. We would be more than happy to take a look at your Kindle and perform a diagnostic test, absolutely free. We will tell you what’s wrong with your device, how we will fix it, and how much these repairs will cost. Then, you can decide what you want to do.
If you do decide to have your device repaired by us, we will get it back to you within 24 hours. We can also come to your home or place of work to do the repairs, which makes things a whole lot easier.

Batteries don’t last forever, and usually, they last much less time than you want them to. Charging your device over and over again causes the battery to hold less and less. It can get to the point where you aren’t able to use your device at all without having it plugged in – or at least close to it.
Since iPhones, iPads, smartphones, and tablets are meant to be MOBILE devices, you shouldn’t have to be a prisoner of the charging cord and outlet. It’s time to break free from it!
At iResQ, we specialize in battery replacements for mobile devices. We have high quality batteries for iPhones, iPads, smartphones and tablets. Simply choose the device you have and the battery replacement service for your device.
When we receive your device, we’ll take out the old battery, install the new one, and test it out for you. This is to ensure when you get your device back, you’ll be completely satisfied with the repair.
A new battery means you will be able to use your phone or tablet longer than an hour without charging it. Depending on how much you use your device throughout the day, you may be able to go a whole day or maybe even two days without charging it. You will be able to use it just as you did when you first bought it. Seems like a dream right now, right?
Order a battery replacement service for your MOBILE device now. You don’t need to buy a new phone or tablet because of the battery. You just need to buy a new battery from iResQ and have our certified technicians put it in for you. We believe in saving you money, and getting your phone or tablet to last longer in your hands versus buying a new one is one of the many ways we do that.

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.
Call us today to learn more about our school program for iPad, MacBook, tablet, and smartphone repair.

Just because you should buy presents for other people, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t buy anything for yourself. You love yourself just as much as you love other people, right?
This Christmas season, make a point to be good to yourself.
Since many people tend to wait on getting repairs made to their mobile devices such as smartphone or tablet, the holiday season is the perfect time to move forward with it. You don’t want to go into the New Year with a shattered iPhone screen. That just sets a bad precedence for the New Year, which should be filled with hope.
In your budget, allocate some money towards getting your iPhone, iPad, smartphone or tablet repaired. It doesn’t cost as much as you think, and you’ll be thrilled to see that it’s finally fixed. It will feel as though you just bought yourself a new device without spending all of the money on a new one. Trust us – it will feel awesome.
Our suggestion is to repair your device before Christmas. You don’t want to be without your mobile device during the holidays. There’s nothing worse than not being able to browse your Facebook feed while the family carries on with their raving and ranting around you.
If you send us your device the week or two before Christmas, we will repair it within 24 hours of receiving it. Our techs are that good. This means, depending on the shipping you choose, you could have your device back in your hands in just a couple of days – way before you need it to distract yourself from your uncle’s incessant probes to start a massive feud.
So this weekend as you’re going in and out of stores trying to find the perfect gift, take some time away to order the repair service you need for your iPhone, iPad, smartphone or tablet. You will be so glad you did when you wake up Christmas morning.
