Uh Oh….I Cracked My Smartphone!

Cracked smart phone repair.Few things can ruin your day quite like a cracked smartphone screen. And for a ruined week or months, try going without the right repair options!

Replacing an Android or iPhone  in the middle of your contract or payment plan is expensive. Plus, with trade-in offers there’s a higher chance of being without a backup spare phone. Thankfully, there are a number of ways you can manage the issue and get back to life as usual.

You don’t need to pay upwards of $650 for a new iPhone or pay full price for a new Android out-of-pocket in order to fix your device. There are temporary fixes for a few dollars and there are great options that run around $100-$200.

If you’ve found yourself with a cracked screen, here are several different repair options that could work for you.

  1. Call the Manufacturer - Before attempting any DIY screen repair solution, check with the company that made your phone. You could end up voiding your phone’s warranty by attempting to fix the screen yourself. You’ll want to check with the manufacturer first to see what options they offer. They may require you to mail the phone in, then wait while they fix it and return it to you in the mail.
  2. Screen Protector or Tape - While you’re trying to decide which repair option works best for you, you can use a screen protector or tape as a very temporary option. Assuming it is only the glass that is broken and you can still see images and responses to your touch, this fix will temporarily keep your screen from breaking even further. This also helps keep glass from falling off into your hands.
  3. DIY Screen Repair or Replacement - There are a lot of useful DIY tutorials available online that help you repair or replace your screen. You’ll need to have all of the tools required for the job and you’ll need to order the parts from a reputable source. All too often, sellers on Ebay or Amazon claim to offer a cheap solution for repairing or replacing your phone, then you end up paying and waiting for the parts to arrive, only to discover that they’re nowhere near what you were looking for. Be sure you order quality parts. This option usually runs between $100 and $200 (not including shipping)
  4. Qualified Repair Shop - For the quickest, easiest solution to getting back to normal life with your phone, take it into to an expert you trust. Not only will the service providers be able to walk you through exactly what’s wrong with your phone in person, they will also be able to discover any additional problems that may have been caused by dropping your phone. This option runs around the same price as the DIY option, but with much less waiting and risk.

Michael came to our office and fixed our iMac. He was very thorough and had it up and running in no time. Our office never missed a beat!

They did a great job in setting up my new laptop. They loaded new software and they moved over all my data and programs from a 12-year-old desktop. I'm thrilled with the new, faster computer and having all my old systems still working!!

I had a hard drive go down on a piece of video equipment. Michael and Computer Corner had me up and running in just a few days (parts had to be ordered). Thank you Computer Corner!

My son owns a computer businness in NC so when we needed someone local, we got a recommendation for Computer Corner from a friend. I am more than pleased. I will recommend them in a heartbeat. They communicated the status of my computer to me by text and the work was done very fast and the turnaround would probably have been faster if it hadn't been Thanksgiving week.

Best experience I've had with laptop repairs in Florida. Answered my many questions quickly, informed me of all of my options, and made sure I took home a well tuned machine. All repairs are costly no matter where you go, but at least you get what you pay for with the helpful staff here. As I type this, I'm planning another trip to see them.
