If you are in need of cell phone repair service, you are not alone. About 80 percent of Americans own at least one smartphone and it is estimated that approximately 45 percent of all cell phone owners will accidentally damage their phone in one way or another. Surprisingly, most of these accidents happen at home, not because we spend a majority of time there, but because we feel safe at home and probably aren’t as cautious about cell phone safety as we might be when out and about.
Almost 40 percent of the time, a phone gets damaged when it falls right out of our hands. Twenty-eight percent of cell phone owners will accidentally drop their phones into water or some other liquid, and eight percent spill something on their devices. One final interesting statistic about cell phone damage is that the average time it takes for a smartphone owner to break their phones after purchase is about 10 weeks. Cell phones are an investment, so when you first purchase one you try to take good care of it. Many people buy bulky protectors for their phones that they tire of after a few weeks and stop using them. This is when disasters strike!
So, what do you do when you have a damaged phone but aren’t ready to upgrade to a new model yet? Most phone manufacturers provide at least a one-year warranty against accidental breakage, so you have the option of mailing your phone back to the manufacturer for mobile phone repair services. Of course, you’ll be without your phone for several days if you opt to take this route.
If your phone is out of warranty or you just don’t want to wait to get your phone fixed, there are several repair facilities that specialize in mobile phone repair services (as well as gaming systems) that can generally provide same-day service—depending on the severity and complexity of your repair issue—as well as affordable prices. Their repair technicians stay up-to-date on all the latest models, and they have an inventory of parts on hand so you won’t have to wait for anything to be shipped in. Another great thing about these kinds of repair shops is that they are readily available to help walk-in customers, unlike Apple Stores where you’ll need to have an appointment for service, if you can find a conveniently located store.
