That feeling when your phone doesn’t turn on, or when it hits the floor and the screen cracks, or when it somehow becomes maddeningly slow…
When your phone isn’t working as it should, your first inclination is to fix it. Naturally, when we’re faced with a problem, we make the attempt to fix it ourselves.
When that fails, we try to find the tech-savvy friend to fix the problem.
And if that fails, we typically hire a pro to get the job done.
But here the thing: trying to fix the problem yourself, or with the help of a friend, can do far more harm than good.
Worse yet, to save money, people find a local amateur “technician” who they believe they can fix the problem. And they often make the problem worse.
Here’s an example:
Your iPhone X won’t charge. You’re a bit low on funds, so you elect to get it fixed with a local guy you find on Craigslist. You give him the phone, he opens the hardware, and instead of promptly finding and fixing the issue, he incorrectly guesses the problem is with the motherboard. He touches the motherboard, attempts to “fix it”, but he ends up permanently ruining it. Now the phone definitely won’t charge or turn on, and you’re forced to shop for a new phone.
Why You Should Leave Phone Repair to the Pros
It’s what we do for a living. At any iDropped location, we have trained personnel who can analyze the problem with your phone and get it back up and running—no collateral damage needed.
Pros can fix the problem quickly. While you can attempt to have an amateur fix the phone to save a few bucks, it’s likely that he cannot fully fix the problem in a timely manner. But when you turn to true professionals, they provide a dedicated service to quickly find and fix the problem.
Your device is expensive, so it needs proper care. Today’s smartphones don’t come cheap. Does it make sense to service your phone with cheap technicians who often create more problems than they solve? Make the right choice and use qualified professionals who can extend the longevity of your device.
When your phone has a problem, it’s risky to go the DIY route or to hire someone who is inexperienced. Care for your phone the right way by choosing pros to handle your repairs.
