So you cracked the front screen on your iPod touch and are now looking at the best options for iPod touch screen repair? It makes sense you want to get a repair that will give you the same good screen quality you had before. If a repair is done correctly, using high quality replacement materials, the fixed iPod’s screen quality should be as good as when it was new.
Consider your two primary options for repair:
Do It Yourself – Do at Your Own Risk
Before taking on any do it yourself project, you must understand that you do so at your own risk. At worst, you could be injured during the repair process, or you can damage the iPod touch beyond repair. You should only attempt to repair it yourself if you have exhausted all other options and aren’t worried about breaking the device any further and have safety measures in place to protect yourself.
Third Party iPod Repair Company
In the past few years, many repair companies have cropped up all over the country specializing in iPod repair. Unfortunately, not all of them use quality parts and/or know exactly what they’re doing. Here are some factors to keep in mind when choosing a third party iPod repair company:
Consider Online Reviews
Do your research. Check for an official website, Facebook, or Twitter page and see what other people are saying about the shop. If you can’t find an online presence, you probably want to look for another option. Any credible repair company should be more than forthcoming with their customers and gladly accept their feedback in a public forum where potential customers can find it.
Finding quality information about a company online is important when you’re looking at mailing in a device. Walk-ins allow you to gauge your level of comfort on a face to face basis but mail-ins take that factor away. If you’re thinking about mailing your device off to a company, you should communicate with them on the phone or at the very least, via email, before doing so. If you can’t find a contact phone number and/or physical address, find another service. There are many reputable companies out there that will gladly talk to you.
Pricing is a deciding factor for many when they’re debating whether they should get a device fixed or buy a new one. A reputable repair shop should be open about their pricing and provide you with a quote upfront. A good sign is if they actually list repair prices online on their website or Facebook page. This means there will be no surprises when it’s time to pay the repair bill.
Cheaper Isn’t Always Better!
Knock-off and counterfeit parts on eBay and Amazon are cheaper for a reason; they have an extremely high defect rate. It’s also less likely the repair company is going to warranty or stand behind their work when using used parts.
Ask about Part Quality
Don’t ever be afraid to ask a repair company what kind of parts they use or where they come from. While you can find high quality parts from eBay and Amazon for a higher price tag, it’s not normally a route that a reputable repair company would take.
Check out the Warranty
A very obvious question that you should always be asking is whether or not a repair company warranties their work. Any reputable shop should absolutely be warrantying not only parts but defects in workmanship.
