At iResQ, it doesn’t take Halloween for us to hear some frightening horror stories. Of course, most of our nightmarish tales are about the devastating drops of iPhones, iPads, iPods, and Macs, but they are bone chilling.

We’ve collected our best iPhone horror stories for you and put them all here. We wish you a Happy Halloween full of fun, fright and tons of treats.

iPhone Gets Flushed Down the Toilet

Taking your iPhone into the bathroom stall? You better think again. This man dropped his iPhone into the toilet AND flushed it. Find out what happened to it. You can read the whole story here:

iPhone Water Damage: Story Flushed Down the Toilet

iPod Nano Dives Into the Washer

iPod Nano users love their devices, so they take it everywhere they go. Since it’s so small, it can conveniently fit into the pocket of a pair of jeans. In a haste, one customer threw his jeans into the washer without thinking about his precious Nano. When he retrieved it, the Nano had been through quite a tumultuous and near death experience.

Read about it here: iPod Nano Water Damage: Don’t Wash Your iPod Nano

A Terrifying Welcome to the Lake

Throw the iPad in the bag and the soy sauce too. Wait, what? That’s what one customer did, and when she arrived at the lake, she screamed in fright. The soy sauce exploded all over the iPad. Take a minute to read what happened to her iPad when we received it. It made us crave Chinese food by the time we were done with this iPad repair.

Here’s the horror story: iPad Dock Connector Repair: The Soy Sauce Story

Do you have one to share? We would love to hear it. In the comments, tell us your Apple product horror story. There’s no better time than on Halloween!

iResQ 10% Coupon / Discount for a Great Cause — EXPIRED

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

Hi everyone,

I am really excited to offer this opportunity to our customers. What’s the catch? Well, there isn’t really one. If there is one, it might be that you’ll have to put in an extra minute of work to get a discount. When it comes down to it, however, you will be helping to make a difference in the fight to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.

This 10% discount is valid until June 11, 2011.

Here’s how to get the discount, and then I’ll give details after for those interested:

  1. 1. Place your iResQ order (skip this step if you’ve already done that).
  2. 2. Go to this website and donate any gift amount (min $5) to sponsor my friend (and repeat iResQ customer) Aaron in the Tour-de-Cure Kansas City.
  3. 3. Once your donation has gone through, forward the email confirmation to – Please include your iResQ order number.
  4. 4. I will refund your credit card or your Paypal 10% of your product repair amount – sorry but I can’t apply the discount to shipping.

Before you ask, yes the donation is tax deductible to my knowledge. If you want to make a bigger donation than $5, that would be amazing, but I can only give you a 10% discount.

This is a great deal for you! Let’s say you have a 15″ MacBook pro (Aluminum) with a broken screen. Our price for that repair is $299. By donating $5 or more, you will get a $29.90 refund back on your credit card. Most importantly, you will be helping the the 25 million Americans affected by diabetes and over 79 million at risk for developing diabetes.

We care at iResQ. We have folks on our staff (including owner) who have diabetes. I personally have several family members that are affected or were affected.

You can find details about the Tour-de-Cure program from their website:

My friend Aaron is of course taking part in the Kansas City ride, where he will bike 60 miles.


Here's a map of his route

Here's a map of his route.

I encourage anyone interested in the program to check out the site (linked above) and donate or participate.

Back to work! On a side note, we’ve been seeing tons of broken iPad 2’s. Everyone be careful with those things, but know that we’re here to repair your iPad 2 if you need us.

Thanks and until next time,

Written by Brian
