What To Know About iPhone Repairs
There are 3 options for having an iPhone repaired:
1. Get the whole unit replaced using insurance for around $150
2. Having it repaired using a 3rd party vendor
3. Repairing it your self
We at ballyhoo recommend having insurance on your phone, how ever we see the price of 150 for a broken screen and other small repairs just way to steep. Insurance is good how ever for water damage as well as lost or stolen phones. Water damage repairs can cost well over 150 depending on how long the device has been exposed to water. The longer it is exposed to water the chances of having multiple components damaged goes up. If your phone has been dropped in water or exposed to water in any way turn the device off and do not attempt to turn it on for at least 24-48 hours. Putting it in rice can greatly increase the chances of having a working phone with minimal repair costs. Do NOT put the phone in the oven or microwave in an attempt to dry it faster.
We strongly do not recommend buying replacement parts for an iPhone on Amazon, ebay, or any other 3rd party website. We have seen kits sold on the internet that do not contain the necessary parts to complete the repair. There is a huge selection of parts that can be confusing to navigate through.Ballyhoo does stock and sell parts for all versions of the iphone and we can guide you in buying the right parts as well as the necessary tools. There are quite of few guides on youtube as well as various websites and we recommend checking them out. Do research about the repair work before diving in and attempting it. Working with small parts does take experience and patience, the last thing we want to see is a customer come back with a broken device they attempted to repair themselves.
