If you have a broken phone, you can save a lot of cash by obtaining iPhone repair through iResQ. Easy. Now, while the technicians at iResQ have years of experience, they're not magicians. If you lose your device or it gets stolen, saying abracadabra isn't going to make it reappear.
With this in mind, you're going to want to be extra vigilant with your iPhone right now. According to NBC, there's something of an iPhone crime wave occurring, so leaving your phone on your lap on the train or in an easy-to-access duffle compartment may not be the wisest option.
“Stealing an iPhone is a relatively easy prospect, especially in busy areas or on public transportation where users are so engrossed in their device they don't even bother to look up or around them,” the news source said. “Someone passing by can quickly grab an iPhone and run, and easily get a few hundred dollars for a few minutes of work.”
The powers at be aren't just sitting around idly, though, while someone runs off with your 4S. According to the Wall Street Journal, the Federal Communications Commission is helping to roll out a deal via AT&T and T-Mobile to blacklist stolen devices with an ID number. This list should be unified by October 2013. Those who are lucky enough to simply have a broken device should look to iPhone repair to make sure the device stays up and running.
