Since you carry your iPhone everywhere you go, it’s bound to fall and break. So if you just broke your iPhone, don’t worry because you aren’t the first nor are you last.
When your iPhone breaks, the first thing you need to do is figure out what is wrong with it.
Is your iPhone’s screen cracked?
If the display is shattered, be careful with it. It’s glass, so you can cut your fingers or your ear when you use it to call someone. It’s also likely if you continue to use it, the glass will break more, especially if you tend to stick your iPhone in your pocket. Once the glass breaks, it’s not as strong as it was before, which is why it could lead to further cracking.
Is the Digitizer Broken?
If you’ve dropped your iPhone and it cracked, there is a possibility the digitizer may be broken too. The digitizer is what using your sense of touch to do what you want to do on your iPhone. So if you tap an app, and nothing happens, or when you’re unable to drag something an app or when playing a game, it’s likely because the digitizer is broken.
Is It Just Acting Weird?
The inner workings of an iPhone are delicate, which means that that if you drop your iPhone, a mechanism inside of it may break without any visible breakage on the outside of it. This can cause your iPhone to do things that you haven’t noticed before such as closing apps spontaneously, shutting down without notice, opening apps without meaning to, and more. If you’re iPhone is just not the same after you’ve dropped it, it’s like you’ll need to have it repaired.
To fix an iPhone, it’s better to send it to a certified technician. A certified technician can diagnose the problem, so he knows exactly what is wrong with your device. Once the problem is found, he can get right to work repairing it, so it’s good as new.
If you want to know how to fix your iPhone, contact iResQ. We provide free diagnostics and low priced repairs for all Apple products and smartphones.

You dropped it, closed your eyes, cussed under your breath, and picked it up. You opened your eyes, and you see what you never wanted to see – your beautiful iPhone with a cracked screen.
An iPhone cracked screen isn’t the end of the world, even if it feels that way. After the initial shock of it, you may even consider keeping it that way because you don’t want to pay for a screen replacement or you don’t have any idea where to get one.
It’s not wise to do that though. A cracked screen on an iPhone isn’t something you should ignore. There are dangers with it and some are even serious.
Once your iPhone has a cracked screen, it is compromised. This means that it doesn’t take much for the rest of the screen to shatter into hundreds of pieces. You could simply put it down on the counter, and all of sudden see the whole screen break into tiny shards of glass.
If you don’t know this already, glass can cut you. The screen on your iPhone is glass. If you have a cracked screen, there are tiny pieces of glass sticking out. When you put your hand, ear, or face on it, there is a possibility that the glass could embed into your skin or cut you. May not sound like a big deal now, but just think about how much it would hurt if you had tiny glass particles in your skin. Take it one step further and think about what if that caused an infection and you had to seek medical attention for it. As you can imagine, that would be a big deal.
The screen on your iPhone protects the digitizer, which is what transmits information when you touch something on the screen. When you have a cracked screen, a part of the digitizer is exposed. This leaves it to be susceptible to dust, dirt, water, and many other iPhone no-nos. It is possible that over time, the digitizer could stop working, which means you would have a bigger iPhone repair on your hands.
When you’re a professional, people want to trust you. If they see your cracked screen, they may think you are careless. You don’t want important people thinking you can’t hold onto your most precious items, or they may not allow you to care for their most precious items. This could hurt your image, reputation, and business.
When you pick up your iPhone, you don’t want to see a cracked screen. You want to see what you want to look at. Whether that is email, Facebook posts, Tweets, or your current favorite game, you want to be able to see it in all its beauty. Every time you have to see the cracks, you are reminded of that ugly incident that made your heart collapse.
There’s no need to go through life with an iPhone cracked screen. You can use our certified technicians for an iPhone screen replacement. We’ve done so many of these that we are proud of our expertise in this area. We know that we are giving people the beautiful, new screens they had when they first bought their iPhone, so they can forget all about that horrible day when their iPhone suffered a crack.

With all of this talk about the iPad 3, any news about the iPhone 4S and iOS 5.1 seems to have been eclipsed. Let’s remember that Apple is more than likely going to announce more than just the iPad 3. This event is going to be big. We may hear something about the next iteration of the Apple TV, new Macbook Pro models, or even (gasp) the Apple TV!! Ok, maybe not the Apple TV but who knows?
Among the topics that Apple may discuss is iOS 5.1. Seeing iOS 5.1 in more detail is going to be great. There are many reasons to be excited about iOS 5.1. While iOS 5.1 may initially be available only for the iPad 3, rest assured, when its the iPhone 4S’ turn to receive the iOS 5.1 update, it will take full advantage of it. A more capable Siri? Yes please! Apple has done an amazing job updating its mobile platform with each iteration.
So before selling or throwing out that cracked or broken iPod Touch or iPhone 3G S, iResQ can repair it for you to get it ready for the new iOS. Remember, we just reduced prices on iPhone 4S repairs dramatically. iPhone 4S Screen repairs are at a record low of $99.

“The iPhone Drop Heard ‘Round the World” … or at least around the Internet. Maybe you’ve heard of this famous phone? Well, we at iResQ certainly know our way around this phone and it’s no coincidence that we took care of the damage.
I am getting ahead of myself here. Let me introduce the phone that I am going on and on about. Check out this iPhone 4S drop test (embedded below) that has almost 9 million views to date:
So there you have it. Probably one of the most famed and legendary iPhone 4S ever to grace the silver screen. I just made it even more popular by posting the video here!
Not surprisingly, the ladies and gentlemen who dropped and damaged this critically-acclaimed iPhone 4S came calling iResQ to fix it up. This is the part where a picture is worth a thousand words, so I’ll stop yapping. Check out these before and after pics:
There you have it. The iPhone 4S breaks, as simple as that. It is made of glass housing on both the front and back. Just make sure you let a proven pro (hint – us) handle your Apple iPhone 4S repair if you need it. Oh, and if you drop your Samsung Galaxy, maybe you can sell it for scrap and go buy an iPhone? Just kidding.
Have a great Turkey Day everyone!

If you’re a regular to the iResQ blog, you should know good and well by now that a good bulk of us at iResQ are Chiefs fans. Come football time, we get excited. This year in particular is especially exciting. With the lockout lifted just last Monday, the floodgates have been opened for free agent signing. One acquisition that the Chiefs made yesterday was well received. Steve Breaston, formally of the Arizona Cardinals, will sign a 5-year contract with the Chiefs tonight. Chiefs fans have been clamoring for the team to beef up their core receiving squad, and based on our first round draft pick in Jonathan Baldwin along with the recent acquisition of Breaston, it looks like the Chiefs are doing just that. Go figure, this is Todd Haley we are talking about.
Now the fact that we got Breaston, a proven receiver in the NFL, is great. The icing on the cake, at least for me, is this:
Ok ok, I hear ya. What does this all have to do with getting your Apple products fixed? What does this have to do with repairing your broken iPhone, your busted iPad 2, or the cracked screen on your MacBook Air? Well, the answer to that is….not much. I just like talking football. What I can tell you is that iResQ is doing better than ever. Not only are we performing a record amount of repairs (ESPECIALLY on iPads) we have more positive feedback than we can shake a stick at. Check out what our customers have been saying about us on the interwebs. Or, you can check out iResQ’s A+ rating with the BBB.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Also don’t forget to watch this Sunday’s installment of the best sitcom of all time, Curb Your Enthusiasm.
