It is no surprise that Apple’s iPhone dominates the smartphone market this day and age. Take a look at the wonderful info-graphic below courtesy of Macrumors.com. It shows that Apple is ranked number two amongst all other vendors that are in the smart phone market. Although Samsung is number one on the list, they have a wide range of Android driven phones which prevents any one phone from dominating the market as opposed to Apple, which offers one iPhone (albeit with several yearly revisions of the device). This means that the iPhone can be considered the most popular smartphone on the market.
Kudos to Samsung, though, for providing such a wide variety of excellent smart phones. The Android OS has proven to be a worthy competitor to Apple’s iOS in such a hard market to dominate. Still, the presences of Apple near the top of this list is compelling. How long before you see Apple at number one? Will the iPhone 5 be the final push that takes Apple over the edge? If I had to place a bet, I would put all of my money on the iPhone 5 doing so.
With such a huge installed iPhone user base, iResQ is seeing more and more iPhones come in for repair. Believe it or not, the iPhone 3G S is still as popular as ever and we see tons of them come in for broken glass (or digitizer repairs). But when it comes down to the king of the castle, the iPhone 4S reigns supreme. This shows in our spike in iPhone 4S repairs lately.

Greetings everyone. I just thought I’d touch base with you to talk about some common iPhone 4S problems and what we can do to fix them. We have seen a lot of iPhone 4Ss around these parts and for many different reasons. You name it, we have seen it: an iPhone 4S dropped in coffee, washed in the washing machine, drooled on (by a baby of course), ran over by a car….. These devices seem prone to accidents, or prone to be owned by clumsy people. Nonetheless, extraordinary things can befall your iPhone 4S, but today we are here to discuss the most common iPhone 4S repairs.
The most common thing we see when a 4S comes in is either a cracked screen or backplate due to a drop. As beautiful as the iPhone 4S is, it is literally made of glass. Glass shatters. We offer both iPhone 4S screen repair and backplate repair services at low prices.
Just below are the two iPhone 4S Screen Repairs that we offer. Remember, this covers the entire front screen assembly of the 4S, including the Retina Display, digitizer, and glass. It also does not matter what carrier you bought your iPhone from, just choose which color iPhone you have and we’ll repair it with the necessary, authentic part:
And here are the two backplate repair services we offer for any type of iPhone 4S:
If you’re adventurous enough and feel that you can perform these repairs yourself, we offer do-it-yourself repair kits for screens and backplates:
If you don’t know what is wrong with your iPhone 4S you can always send it in for our free diagnostics.
If you choose this route, once we receive your iPhone 4S, one of our professional iPhone technicians will evaluate your iPhone and contact you with an accurate price quote. If you elect to go through with the repair, we will fix and ship your iPhone back to you. If you don’t, no worries, there are absolutely NO obligations. We’ll either send you back your iPhone or recycle it if you ask us to. There is no pressure and no pushy salesperson will hound you.
If you have any questions, we are always here to answer them. I like to say that we are the most reachable repair company out there. Want to call and chat with us over the phone? No problem, call us at 888.447.3728. Do you just want to leave us a voicemail? No problem, just call our number and press 9 to access our voicemail system. Would you rather just email us?

Just go to iResQ.com and click the chat widget on the bottom-right hand of the screen to chat with a sales associate. Want to contact us via Facebook? Here it is. Twitter? Yep. Want to leave a message on one of our Youtube videos? You got it. Last, but certainly not least, if you’re in town, pop in! We have a comfortable lobby where you can talk to one of our sales associates face to face. Whew, that’s a lot. I’m sure there are more ways to contact us that I can’t think of right now.
Well, the weekend is upon us and I have a lot that I want and need to do. As a matter of fact, tonight I am stopping by the local Vintage Stock to pick up an old SNES console to relive the 16 bit glory days of Super Metroid. A little of that and MW3 for me tonight. Just the ticket to cap off a crazy last couple weeks.
Until we meet again…
