Why should you get your cell phone repaired instead of chucking it in the garbage?

 Here are five reasons why:

Price: The cost of replacing your phone could cost more than $500.00 if you are buying a new one outside of your contract. You can of course try and find refurbished or used versions, but you may have other issues down the road, costing you more money. If you choose to have a mobile phone repairs professional fix your phone, then you could easily save yourself $400.00, especially if you just need your screen replaced. You can book an appointment to get your Samsung phone repairs done in Melbourne here.

The Environment: Mobile phones are not bio-degradable and this is bad for the environment and the creatures living in landfills. Lithium ion batteries could explode causing fires, and cause even more damage to our surroundings. If you feel your phone is a lost cause, then it’s best to take it to someone who recycles them or can repurpose them for you.

Better for the Economy: Most cell phone repair shops are small businesses, and employ local people. If you choose to have your iPhone serviced by a professional, then you could be helping put cash back into your local market. You local Sprint store may be local, but they are a corporation and a smaller percentage of the money you spend with them is kept in your local area. You’re also helping a local company such as this iPhone 5 repair shop in Melbourne keep its doors open which is another reason to take your phone to a shop.

Time: If you’re in a hurry to have your hand held device repaired, most shops can have your mobile phone back to you within an hour, an excellent option for anyone who is typically short on time. If there is absolutely no repair shop in your area, most mobile phone specialists can have your mobile phone fixed within 24 hours. Being without your phone isn’t fun, but choosing to get your phone fixed will save you money in the long run.

Security: When you have your device repaired, you won’t have to worry about losing data or having to erase your information. Many people don’t realize that by resetting your phone when you erase your info, the information is still there. You will have to buy a special program to erase all of your sensitive information off of your phone to completely erase all of your information.

How To Repair A Broken iPhone 6 Screen In Less Than 10 Minutes

How To Repair A Broken iPhone 6 Screen In Less Than 10 Minutes

iphone 6 repair melbourneCracked screens are the most common reason for iPhone 6 repairs, which is unsurprising considering the slightest tumble to asphalt or pavement can reduce your brand-new, picture-perfect technology to a spider-webbed nightmare in the blink of an eyelash.

Not only are cracked iPhone 6 screens ugly and unsightly, they also post a health risk – both to your hands and fingers, in the form of cut hands and fingers, as well as your iPhone 6 itself. A cracked iPhone 6 screen exposes your phone’s innards to the elements, running the risk of permanent data loss and equipment malfunction.

Considering this, it’s always a great idea to fix your iPhone when minor damages occur, to protect your investment and your valuable data. Going through Apple can cost hundreds of dollars, however, not to mention leaving you without a phone for days, or even weeks.

For brave, foolhardy souls, unwilling to cough up the cash to get their mobile handset repaired or replaced, or be separated from their phone for any amount of time, it’s possible to replace an iPhone 6 screen in less than 10 minutes, given the right materials and technical savvy.

Here’s how to replace your iPhone 6 screen in less than 10 minutes.

Not confident enough to repair your iPhone 6 screen yourself? Let one of Melbourne’s leading iPhone 6 repairs centers handle it for you!

Before You Begin: Apple Care vs. DIY

It’s important to consider all of your options, when repairing an iPhone 6. If you were smart enough to purchase Apple Care when you got your iPhone 6, you might do well to contact Apple, as most repairs are covered under Apple Care.

If you don’t have Apple Care, but only have a minor crack, it could be worth your while to tackle the repairs yourself.

How To Replace An iPhone 6 Screen:
  1. Get a replacement screen
  2. Power down your handset
  3. Remove dock screws: Using a security or 5-point screwdriver, remove the two screws on either side of the Lightning Dock. Set these screws aside (making sure not to lose them.)
  4. Remove the cracked screen: Use a suction cup to carefully pull up the bottom of the display. Place the suction cup right above the Home button.
  5. Swing the display enough to reveal the top right of the inside of your iPhone 6. This is where the cables sit that will need to be disconnected.
  6. Use a #000 Phillips screwdriver to remove the five screws that are revealed. Be careful not to mix up these screws. They’re all different sizes and need to be put back in exactly same order.
  7. Remove the display shield using small tweezers or your fingers. Just be careful not to snag the cables.
  8. There are four cables connecting the display to the logic board. Remove the first two cables using the flat end of your spudger tool. Be careful not to pry at the board, but only at the cables themselves. They should come free easily.
  9. A third cable will be visible, after removing the first two cables. Remove it the same way you did the previous two.

To replace an iPhone 6 screen:

  1. Replace the display shield and the five screws that secure it, using a #000 Phillips screwdriver.
  2. Line up the top of the display, paying special attention to the grooves at the top of the display.
  3. starting at the top, carefully push the display down. Don’t force it. If it’s not lining up, try again. Don’t use excessive force. If you you feel resistance, something isn’t lining up properly.
  4. Replace both screws on either side of the Lightning Dock. Be careful not to screw them in too tight, which could result in you stripping them. Stripped screws could be more difficult to remove them later if you need to.
  5. Once your iPhone 6 is back together and you’re sure you have no spare parts, it’s safe to power it back on. If all went well, you should see an Apple logo. Also keep an eye out for black lines and dead spots, which could be signs of improper installation.
  6. That’s it!

    Do keep in mind that any evidence of tampering or unofficial repairs nullifies the Apple warranty. If you feel any hesitation or uncertainty, you’d be better off finding iPhone 6 screen repair in Melbourne.

A Shortage Of Raw Materials Could Drive Up The Cost Of iPhone 5 Repairs

iPhone 5 repair MelbourneMany iPhone 5 owners have been watching with growing concern, as the cost of iPhone 5/5C/5S LCD assemblies have continued to skyrocket.

This was originally anticipated as being a short-term situation, the shortage of LCD assemblies has continued, causing great concern for those looking for iPhone 5 repairs.

What’s Causing The Shortages?

Factories are having a hard time keeping up with the demand for iPhone 5 LCD assemblies, due to an increasingly difficult time procuring certain raw materials.

Some Raw Materials Found In An iPhone 5 (Some Might Surprise You):

  • Gold
  • Platinum
  • Aluminium
  • Copper
  • Gadolinium
  • Europium
  • Yttrium
  • Lanthanum
  • Dysprosium

In fact, there is 324 times more precious minerals in one ton of iPhone 5’s than in a ton of ore from the Yanacocha Complex, the largest gold deposit in the world in Peru. There’s also 6.5 times as much silver in a ton of iPhone 5’s than a ton of ore from the Cannington Silver Mine.

It might make you wonder if it would be more worthwhile to recycle your iPhone 5, considering its interiors read off like some demented prospector’s fever dream, but we know your iPhone 5 is worth 10 times as much, to you, as it would for a gold digger.

After all, you’ve been through a lot together, and there are certain irreplaceable things on that phone that money just can’t buy. Don’t let the shortage deter you – our repair experts are standing by to help you!

Sources haven’t been forthcoming on which materials they’re running low on, but it’s having a big impact on the price of iPhone 5 repairs in Melbourne, and all over the world.

Should We Abandon Hope?

Not at all! These kind of shortages are actually rather common. Factories run short on raw materials and components in a similar fashion when a new model of iPhone comes out, causing a similar level of panic (and a similar rise in repair costs).

A lot of repair shops take advantage of people in need of iPhone 5 repairs. We would never! We value our customers too much.

We can typically repair an iPhone 5 in 24 hours, or less, even in times of shortage. We’ve had time to compile all the most common parts, for times like those, so if you need an LCD, a new battery, or an iPhone 5 screen repair in Melbourne, we’ve got you covered.
