Repair or Replace: A Cellphone Dilemma

Your iPhone’s screen goes blank or your Samsung Galaxy’s screen is shattered – now what? You depend on your cell phone for much more than just texts and calls – it is your lifeline to the world. Your address book, email, social connections, camera and so much more are tied to that phone. So, is it time to repair your trusty device or should you consider replacement?

While it can be tempting to upgrade to the next model of your favorite brand, consider the implications. If your phone is fairly new, it could last for another year or more before it needs replacement. Upgrading to a new phone means redoing all your settings, downloading your favorites apps and many other inconveniences. It also could mean a big bite out of your wallet.

Cellphone repair has come a long way in the last few years. Considering the cost of a new iPhone or Galaxy, repair is a cost-effective and viable option in most cases. You no longer need to send away your phone for repair through an insurance company. Most major towns and cities have quality cell phone repair shops right in malls and shopping centers – some even offer mobile repairs that come to you.

Most common smartphone issues can be repaired the same day. This means in a few hours you could have your trusty phone back, working like new again. Make sure to ask about the repair warranty. There are shops that offer a lifetime warranty on their repair services.

Skip the upgrade and call a local repair shop first- you could save hundreds of dollars and get more life out of your phone.

4 Reasons to Repair Your iPhone or iPad Screen

Do you have an iPhone or iPad with a cracked or shattered screen? It is one of the most common types of damage to mobile devices. However, you may think you don’t need to repair or replace the screen. After all, it still works, even with the cracks covering the screen. While it may function even when cracked, the longer you wait to get it fixed, the more it could cost you. Here are four good reasons to bring your i-device in to a local repair shop for a quick fix on your screen.

  1. Water damage. When your screen is cracked, there is a good chance water will get into your iPad or iPhone. Even if liquid is not spilled directly on it, moisture can enter your phone since the screen is no longer sealed. Moisture of any kind inside your device can lead to other equipment issues.
  2. Repair vs. replacement. In some cases, your screen can be repaired instead of replaced, saving you money. However, the longer you wait, the more likely you will need a full screen replacement.
  3. Partial function. Yes, you can still make calls, text and update your social media. But how well? As the cracks grow, it gets harder and harder to see the details on your screen and use all your functions.
  4. You pay too much for your i-device. You spend too much on your iPhone or iPad to not repair it. Don’t end up needing to buy a new phone or tablet because you didn’t repair your screen.

iPad and iPhone repair shops can usually fix screen problems in a matter of minutes for a fraction of the cost of device replacement. Make the time today to get your mobile device screen repaired – it’s worth the time and money.
