Common Phone Repairs That Are Cheaper Than a New Phone
It’s no secret that buying a brand new cell phone can be an expensive activity. While there are some phones that are in a budget range, every year brings phones with more and more features that drive the price up. Since smartphones have also become almost a necessity to function in the world, it’s important that you get as much value as possible out of that purchase. If you get your smartphone through a carrier (like Verizon, Sprint, or AT&T) you probably also have a specific number of months you have to make payments before it’s “eligible” for an upgrade, although they’ll let you upgrade at any time if you want to just buy the phone. So what happens when something breaks on your phone before it’s time to trade it in? iPhone and Android repairs
can extend the life of your device without breaking the bank. Here are four repairs that can save you a lot of money.
Batteries in smartphone are not the same as the ones in your average consumer electronics where you can pop off the cover and put in a new one as soon as the old one runs out. But just like any battery, the one in your phone doesn’t last forever. Whether it gets damaged from a drop or just wears down over time and won’t hold a charge for very long, getting it replaced is a quick and inexpensive process at any PC Laptops store. Once you have a new battery, there are some things you can do to prolong its life, such as avoiding “fast charges” whenever possible and keeping it out of the heat.
Cracked or Broken Screens
Your screen is another important part of your phone, and few things are more frustrating than trying to work on a device that has a huge crack (or a spiderweb of cracks) through the middle. Cracked and broken screens are actually one of the top reasons
people come in for iPhone repair, and start as low as $58 (prices vary depending on your smartphone model). Plus these repairs are quick so you don’t have to be without your phone for hours or days.
A charging port on your phone that won’t connect to the cord or it’s loose and the connection won’t hold during a charge is annoying and unpredictable. Instead of endlessly wiggling the charger cable and hoping for a charge each night, bring it in for repairs and we can replace the port so it charges every time.
Software Installation & Upgrades
When your phone isn’t upgrading like it should it could be at risk for hackers and malware or it could just get painfully slow. Either way, we can help you get the latest software updates installed so you’re protected from malicious attackers and your phone is working like it should.
