When your phone breaks, either by your own fault or not, the first thought most people have is, “How much is this going to cost me?” Sometimes a fix can be simple, quick, and cheap. Occasionally it may be smarter to scrap your phone and purchase a new one. How can you make that decision on your own? Well, sometimes you need to help of a professional. Zagg Phone Repair is happy to assist you in answering the most pressing phone repair questions.
Do You Have a Warranty?
First step in accessing repair costs is to determine whether a warranty applies. If you have protection through the company or store that you purchased the phone, your repair should be covered under their policy. All phones come with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty that should cover hardware issues that are not the result of user error.
Extent of the Repair
If you do not have any extended warranty through the store or provider you purchased your phone from and you are past the 1-year warranty, you need to determine the extent of the repair. A screen replacement is typically simple, inexpensive, and a quick fix. However, if your phone was dropped in water, or placed in the washing machine, your repairs may be extensive, costly, and exceed the value of the phone.
Talk to a Professional
If you aren’t sure the extent of your repair, take your phone in to a phone repair professional. They will be able to test your phone to troubleshoot the issue and provide you with a repair estimate. They may also be able to tell you if a repair is possible, or if a new phone should be purchased.
