Having to fix an iPhone screen is something that no one wants to have to deal with or pay for. Most would agree that iPhones are expensive enough to buy in the first place! Unfortunately, even when you have a sturdy case, iPhones can and do break sometimes.
You should be sure you fully understand the options for repairs that are available to you before you make the choice to either buy a new smartphone or repair your cracked screen. The following are some common myths associated with Apple iPhone repair to help you separate fact from fiction when it comes to the information out there about how to fix your iPhone.
Myth #1: If a third-party repair shop fixes my cell phone, it will void the warranty.
The truth is if you have an iPhone with a broken screen or any other accidental damage, the phone’s limited one-year warranty is already voided. Going to a “non-certified” repair shop won’t void your warranty. Repair shops offering post-warranty repairs will always do what they can to fix your device so you don’t have to buy a new one. Furthermore, 9 times out of 10, repairing your device will be cheaper than replacing it.
Myth #2: It costs too much money to repair my cell phone.
This is subjective and prices differ varied on location. But many people think it’ll cost a fortune to get their device fixed. How much of your life revolves around your smartphone? Do you use it on a daily basis? For some, it’s a small price to pay to get your favorite device working like new.
Myth #3: My cell phone can’t be fixed.
Wrong! Rest assured it can be when you find the right, qualified iPhone repair shop.
Myth #4: I can fix this iPhone myself, no problem!
Many customers will buy cell phone parts online, attempt to fix the device themselves and then show up at their local repair shop with a bag full of screws and a half-assembled iPhone. Rarely does the average consumer realize how time-consuming (and frustrating) these repairs can be. It looks a lot easier than it actually is.
Even if you get the iPhone back together with all the pieces in place, if the screen doesn’t turn on, you’re in for a long and painstaking troubleshooting process. Unless you’re highly technical or very confident in your personal abilities, leave it to the professionals.
Myth #5: Cell phone repair shops are sketchy and the technicians aren’t certified.
Unfortunately, just like every other industry in the world, there exist dishonest business owners who take advantage of their customers. This can give an industry a bad reputation, but this does not mean the industry as a whole can’t be trusted.
The cell phone repair industry is filled with thousands of awesome, trustworthy people who love helping other people. 90% of repair shops are independently-owned small business repair shops. Since local businesses thrive on community trust, check out online reviews of your local repair shop to see how they’ve taken care of their customers before.
