Repair Business FAQ’s

For those starting out on their own in the competitive cell phone repair world, you likely need tips and a bit of a push to get going. We've got the resources, tips and ideas from established business owners to get you through the first few tough months.

Case Studies

The most common repair any professional cell phone repair technician will do is definitely a full LCD screen replacement. However in close second is definitely a basic battery replacement. Unfortunately, as apps become more popular and eat up more and more resources it’s only a matter of time before Apple users in Montreal will find their phone isn’t lasting the entire day. This most commonly happens with phones that are older, such as the iPhone 4S, but a battery replacement in Montreal is definitely popular and certainly doable.

Replacing Your iPhone Battery

In terms of your options, the repair is already inexpensive enough and low quality parts certainly do exist so do yourself a favor and go with an established repair shop that can warranty their work so you get total peace of mind. Montreal repair shops know this is a high demand repair and make sure they have a healthy stock of replacement parts and enough qualified staff on hand to get it done pretty fast – often within 30 minutes.

Alternatively you can order your own parts online and if your feeling confident, actually remove your old battery and replace it. This saves you a bit of money for sure, but the fate of your iPhone is in your own hands at this point, and an Apple Care or official warranty from your carrier is not going to protect you. You’ve been warned!

Below are the instructions for replacing your iPhone 5 battery (one of the most popular models for this type of problem).

  1. The initial steps are turning off your phone obviously and making sure that it isn’t plugged into anything. This seems obvious, but we need to make it clear every time – you never know!
  2. There are two pentalobe screws at the base of your device – carefully remove them and place them aside (don’t lose them!)
  3. Use the plunger and/or suction cup to remove the front glass display and back cover (detailed instructions here). This sounds complicated, but iFixit has a great visual tutorial, just follow their steps.
  4. Dislodge the existing battery unit (carefully!) and set it aside.
  5. Install a quality, OEM replacement lithium-ion battery and make sure those tiny screws are placed back in exactly the same spot they were before you started the repair.

That’s it! The process is super simple, but like we said, if this isn’t your cup of tea and you want a professional iPhone repair solution, check out a local Montreal cell phone repair shop we recommend that’s just over on University Avenue. From our experience and what our friends have told us, they are great and can get devices fixed incredibly fast!

If you’re particularly clumsy you may be looking to fix a broken or cracked iPhone screen more often than you’d like to admit. You’ve tried negotiating with Apple or your cellular carrier, but we all know they just want you to upgrade to a newer, more expensive handset and plan, and are not too helpful at all when it comes to getting aesthetic issues like a broken LCD screen fixed. The Apple Care warranty only entitles you to two replacement devices, and even those are really refurbished and take 48+ hours to arrive. So what are your other options in Tampa when it comes to getting your phone fixed? There are two major options for you to consider – DIY or third party. Keep reading below as we break down the details of each and help you make an educated choice if you are sick of paying too much for cell phone repair.

 

DIY iPhone Screen Repairs

If you fancy yourself technical enough, there are tons of tutorials and other resources online that can actually guide you through the process of removing the broken front LCD display and installing a brand new screen. The good part of this is that it is by far your least expensive option. However the downside is that if you end up breaking anything else, you are digging yourself a hole and your phone may be beyond repair. While many issues such as home or power buttons becoming unresponsive can certainly be fixed, if there is any damage done to the actual logic board of your phone, this is usually not cost effective to repair. An iPhone 5 logic board costs just as much as a new phone, so many people will opt to sell their existing phone for scrap parts and subsidize the cost of a brand new model iPhone. Fixing the screen yourself can certainly be done, it’s just less common given the risks associated with damaging other components.

Local Tampa, FL Phone Repair

Our recommended course of action is to find a local repair shop and have them repair your screen. You are definitely not the only one to get up out of your truck and drop your phone, so the local markets have really opened up and made getting these nuisance issues fixed, and fixed much faster than the traditional Apple Care warranty route. Cell phone repair shops are usually great for these types of repairs and can easily stock high quality LCD replacements screens for every model from the iPhone 4 (if you’re still holding onto one of these, congrats) to the brand new iPhone 6S.
