It unfortunately happens to be that despite us babying our treasured devices, life can still creep up unexpectedly and remind us how futile the effort is. Many of us (including myself) don’t like to use cases. We want the phone’s design to shine and thinness preserved.
But if you’re suddenly caught in the wrong end of this conundrum, what do you do? The answer doesn’t have to be to cough up hundreds to replace the device. It’s possible to send it in for repair and potentially save a good amount of moolah.
One such place that can bring your device back to life is Cell Phone Repair (CPR). Despite the name, CPR vows to take in any gadget you can throw at them (phones, tablets, laptops, game consoles, cameras, etc.).
The repair cost is up in the air, depending the extent of the damage. CPR offers free estimates. Phone repair services cover a wide varitey of mishaps: cracked screens, broken digitizer, battery replacement, water damage, etc.
There are two options for getting your broken device to a CPR shop – by walk-in or shipping. CPR currently has over 200 locations where it can administer the repair. There is a store locator on the website.
However, if the closest location is too far, you can ship it over there. Just fill out a form with your information and explanation of the problem. CPR will assess the issue and provide you an estimate upon receiving the device.
What’s also cool is that if you decide to let go of said phone, CPR can either buy it from you or let you trade it for a refurbished phone from its inventory.
If you’re worried about the quality of the service to your precious device, you shouldn’t be. CPR vows that it’s expertly skilled in the field and it offers a lifetime warranty with all repairs. Also, recognizing that leaving behind your device is agonizing, CPR makes the repair process quick (many repairs are done same day).
