You broke the screen on your cell phone and don’t know what to do! We have a few options, so let’s figure out which one works best for you.
First, are you paying for any extra insurance or warranty coverage from your provider or the manufacturer of your device (apple care). If you are, we should contact them first, to see what our options are. You may have coverage that allows you to go to a local cell phone repair store, like Cell Phone City, to have your device repaired quicker.
If you do not have any insurance or warranty to cover your repair, we should see if there is a local store that can fix your phone for you. Simply google; “cell phone repair Fort Wayne” (change Fort Wayne to the city you want).
Now we can see that there are a few places that come up and we can read their reviews to make a better choice. Facebook is a good place to ask your friends and family if they have any recommendations. If you have a favorite review site, you may want to check that out as well. Let’s call a couple of the best ones and make our choice based on those calls.
We should be able to find a cell phone repair store that is confident in their ability to do the repair, relatively fast, has a fair price, has detailed positive online reviews, and is nice to us when we call. They may be busy so we want to make sure we know what kind of phone we have and what is wrong with it before we call.
If after those calls, we still are not comfortable getting our cell phone repaired, we should call the manufacturer and see if they do any mail in repairs. We can also contact your carrier to see if you are eligible for any upgrades. If you decide to upgrade, you may be able to find someone to buy your damaged cell phone to offset the price of your new device.
If none of these options work for you may want to do the work yourself. Just be sure to spend a few hours watching YouTube videos and searching for the right high-quality parts online, before you start. If you prepare properly, you can do just a good a job as an expert.
