There aren’t too many people in the world today who aren’t the proud owners of some sort of smartphone. With the technology advanced society that we live in today, owning a smartphone has become a basic need for everyone. The truth is that regardless of what kind of smartphone you own, after a period of time something always goes wrong with it. Whether it be the infamous cracked screen or some critical function just crashed, whatever the case, you are going to need help with repairs and quick because nobody really likes to go a minute without having access to their phone.
So now comes the time where you have to make a decision as to who you will use to repair your phone and you are seriously considering the mobile repair business as opposed to a standard repair shop, and for good reason. The mobile repair service saves you time and money because it accommodates by coming to where ever you are, which in turn, saves you the time of traveling to a standard repair shop and saves you some gas money, as well.
Another benefit of using a mobile repair business is that you basically cut the costs of repairs in half when you use this service. The manufacturer and mobile carrier’s repair services have always been known to be higher than something like a kiosk or the mobile repairs because it’s their products and the original replacements of phone parts cost more than aftermarket parts. Therefore, it would make sense for the manufacturers and mobile carriers to charge more for their repair services.
When dealing with standard repair businesses you may have to endure the daunting experience of calling to schedule an appointment to be seen and you could be on hold for quit sometime because a lot of people use the standard repair business. This also means that it could be awhile before they can fit you in their schedule to repair your phone. This is usually not the case when you deal with the mobile repair service, they allow you the convenience of scheduling a service date and time online and around your schedule.
That type of service would be considered superb because the customer is everything to a business and the idea of giving them control of the whole customer experience is a genius concept that won’t ever fail and helps to both gain and retain customers.

You most likely depend on your iPhone every day. Especially if you use it for work. If you have a problem with your phone you may be tempted to try to remedy it yourself. There are several reasons why this would not be a good idea.
If your iPhone is still under warranty then read the fine print carefully. Most times, it is stipulated that the owner cannot repair it. You would most likely find it stated that this would void your warranty. It is important to take this seriously or you will have to pay for the damage. You also cannot assume that every issue will be covered by your warranty. You have to read it in its entirety.
This is probably the most important reason. Unless repairs are done correctly, many problems could potentially occur. There are many parts inside of a cell phone and it is important that all connections are secure for it to work properly. If a part is loose or the battery is damaged, your iPhone could overheat and cause a serious injury or fire. If your screen gets cracked or shattered, it needs to be replaced. You would not want to try to remedy the situation yourself in this case, as you could get cut or severely damage the phone. You want to feel secure in knowing your phone will work when you need it to. There should be a customer service number for you to call for the address of the local authorized repair location.
Most of us upgrade our phones. When that time comes you’ll probably want to sell your iPhone. You may try eBay or Amazon for instance. In order to get the best price you will need to be honest about its condition. If you scratched or dented it trying to make repairs this has to be disclosed. If a feature is not working because you failed to fix something correctly, this would need to be stated. As you can imagine you would not get top dollar unless the iPhone is in like-new condition. You’ll want to include several photos when you list it. The pictures will make the difference if you want top-dollar. If you have taken good care of your iPhone the potential buyer will be eager to pay you a good price for it.
Call us today for help with fixing your iPhone. We have experienced technicians who have been trained on all iPhone repairs. Do NOT risk repairing it yourself. It’s not worth the possible long term costs.

When a device has touch disease, it becomes unresponsive to touch. For instance, when you go to tap on your favorite app, it will not open. No matter what you do, it will not respond to your touch.
This issue has been brought up to Apple many times, but they are hesitant to admit to the problem. Even after having a class-action lawsuit brought against them, they are not coming forward with a public acknowledgement for the faulty screens.
The touch disease issue is not one that only a couple people have experience. It’s already accounted for as much as 11 percent of Apple store repairs. This is a rate already higher than other types of repairs – yes, even cracked screens.
Touch disease often starts with a gray bar across the screen. After a short time, users report the screen become unresponsive to touch. Experts believe it may have something to do with the logic board on the device. When the device is taken out of the pocket, dropped, or slightly bent in some other way, the logic board malfunctions.
Contact Apple immediately if you believe you are experiencing “touch disease.” They will fix it or replace depending on whether they are able to return it to original functioning.

When your iPhone falls or all of a sudden doesn’t work, you have several options. We would like to reveal these options, so you can make an informed decision.
You can trade in your iPhone for a new one. While this may excite you because you’ll end up with the latest model of iPhone, it’s probably not the most cost effective option. You will likely have to pay for the phone, or at least pay much more than you would repairing the damage on the iPhone you have that’s broken.
You can go to the Apple Store. You could have Apple fix it, but it’s likely it will cost you a lot more money than other options we are about to tell you about. Apple often charges more for fixing their iPhones because they know that people will usually pay more than they want to in exchange for having the brand fix their device. The only thing is that the people working on your device are just like the people who work for us. They went through training, supervision, and have repaired many iPhones, so they know what they are doing. You are paying more for the brand to fix it rather than the people.
You can fix it yourself, but you probably don’t want to do that. Repairing iPhones is not easy, no matter what the college kid down the street will tell you. Sure, he may be able to take the phone apart and put it back together, but what if one little thing goes wrong? That’s it for your phone. It will likely be unrepairable and then you will really have to hand over some cash to cover the cost for a replacement.
Trust in an iPhone repair shop that has been in business since 1994. We have certified technicians who have the knowledge, experience, and skill to repair your iPhone no matter what is wrong with it. Actually, they can fix any Apple product and Android device for a fraction of the cost of Apple and other repair places. We only use the highest quality parts too.
Give us a call or browse our site for more information on how we can save your device in less time, money, and headache then choosing these other options.

Some of our customers are fearful of using our services because they don’t us to steal their personal information. While we can tell you we are trustworthy and would never take your personal information, we know that’s not going to matter much to you. Instead, you probably will want to remove all of the personal information from your phone before sending it in to us.
The first thing to do is back up all of your information. You can do this with iTunes. Hook it up with the USB and have it do the backup. This way, when you get it back from us, you will be able to just hook up your phone again to get all of your data back on your phone.
Once you’ve backed up the iPhone or iPad, you can reset it.
Without your device connected to iTunes, tap the Settings icon. You should then see “General.” Tap on “General.”
Scroll all the way down and find “Reset.”
You will probably see “Erase All Content and Settings.” Tap on that.
You will need to put in your passcode, and then confirm you want to reset your device.
The device will begin erasing all of the data.
When the device starts up again, you will see that it starts just like a brand new one. You can then send it in to us worry free that there is any personal information on it.
When you receive your device back, all you have to do is hook it back up to iTunes and do a restore from back up. It won’t take too long, and you’ll be happy that you’re device is working as good as new AND you didn’t compromise your privacy.
Now that you know how to do this, go ahead and order your iPhone or iPad repair. We’re ready to fix whatever it is wrong with quickly, easily, and for a low price.
