Are there any other options to repair your phone that don’t require traveling?
Unfortunately, all in-person cell phone repair shops are now in the CDA area, however, there are of course plenty of different online stores. You can ail in your cell phone to many different places for repair, or you can purchase a cell phone repair kit and do it yourself (not recommended unless you know what you are doing)!
Frequently Asked Questions
It is possible to repair your cell phone yourself, however, it is not recommended unless you know what you are doing. Many online cell phone repair stores will do it for you, and it is probably a better idea to let the professionals handle it. Fixing your cell phone generally requires heat guns, small screwdrivers, and plenty of breakable components that need to be swapped over. This could be a nightmare for someone that is not experienced.
The price to fix a cell phone screen varies depending on the type of cell phone you have. Generally, it ranges from $100-$250. This would include both the labor involved and the cost of the parts for the components that will need to be replaced. Keep in mind, just because one component is broken, doesn’t mean you won’t have to replace other parts during the process.
It usually takes around 30 minutes to an hour to fix a cell phone, depending on the severity of the damage. If you have a cracked screen, it is generally a pretty quick repair. However, if you have other components that are damaged, it could take longer to repair.
If you have a cell phone that needs to be repaired, there are plenty of places near Sandpoint, Idaho that can help you out, they just are a bit of a way away from town, and can be up to an hour’s drive!
You can either bring it into a store or have it mailed in, and most places will give you a quote before they start the repair. Be sure to do your research and find the best place for you
