TMS 35: Resources for Repair of Broken Smartphones


Smartphones are expensive.  Having to purchase a new one when you damage it can set you back a lot.

It’s becoming more common for people to actually get their smartphones fixed when they crack a screen or have battery issues rather than just buying a new one.

Yes, if you have insurance on your smartphone with your carrier, you can get a replacement phone.  However, those of us that don’t pay for insurance, need another option.

Some of the retail computer stores or cell phone stores are offering this type of repair service.  Are they reputable or authorized to fix your phone?

In this episode, I share some local or nationwide places you can take your smartphone to get it repaired… or at least get a complimentary assessment.

Not all smartphones can be repaired.  It’s good to have a backup plan for just in case a disaster happens.

Got a tragic story about your Smartphone, share it in the comments for this episode.

    Once, I dropped my phone in water. My cousin suggested I keep it in rice for a few days in a Ziploc bag. Luckily, it worked just fine after that. I try to be very careful with my phone, but like you said, accidents do happen. I probably will need to upgrade in the next year or so.

    • Long ago when we had the analog cell phones, I dropped one in water and put it in the oven on 200 degrees. It dried the electronics up without damaging them. I had not tried the rice, but have heard about it. Thanks for sharing Breezy!
