Nothing is more frustrating than when your cell phone is broken. However, the phone repair industry has its dark side. It is important that you are well informed about phone repair, what can or cannot be repaired, and standards that should be maintained when your phone is repaired. Here are a few of the most common misconceptions when it comes to phone repair.
You Must Be Certified
Many consumers believe that a cell phone repair technician has to be certified in order to repair phones. This is not true. There is not a governing body that oversees certifications for electronics repair. California is the only state that requires a license. All other states do not require any certification. Many technicians are skilled and self-taught. You can ask your technician about their experience and any training courses they have taken if you are unsure about their legitimacy.
Void of Warranty
Many customers worry that taking their cell phone to a third party for repair will automatically void their phone’s warranty. The majority of phones on the market only come with a one-year manufacture’s warranty. Therefore, if your phone is older than one year, it no longer has a warranty.
Phone repair doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. An experienced phone repair technician can sometimes fix a phone quickly and without much expense to you. It may be much cheaper than having to purchase an entirely new phone.
DIY Isn’t Best
There are many videos online about how to fix your phone. Professionals urge you to not try to do it yourself. Many of our customers come to us with a half disassembled smart phone and a bruised ego. Troubleshooting can be a long and difficult process that takes experience. Save your time and money and give it to someone who knows what they are doing.
