Why You Should Never Do DIY iPhone Repair

iPhone / iPhone

iphone repairYou most likely depend on your iPhone every day.  Especially if you use it for work.  If you have a problem with your phone you may be tempted to try to remedy it yourself.  There are several reasons why this would not be a good idea.

Warranty Stipulations

If your iPhone is still under warranty then read the fine print carefully.  Most times, it is stipulated that the owner cannot repair it.  You would most likely find it stated that this would void your warranty.  It is important to take this seriously or you will have to pay for the damage.  You also cannot assume that every issue will be covered by your warranty.  You have to read it in its entirety.

Safety Concerns

This is probably the most important reason.  Unless repairs are done correctly, many problems could potentially occur.  There are many parts inside of a cell phone and it is important that all connections are secure for it to work properly.  If a part is loose or the battery is damaged, your iPhone could overheat and cause a serious injury or fire.  If your screen gets cracked or shattered, it needs to be replaced.  You would not want to try to remedy the situation yourself in this case, as you could get cut or severely damage the phone.  You want to feel secure in knowing your phone will work when you need it to.  There should be a customer service number for you to call for the address of the local authorized repair location.

Re-Sale Value

Most of us upgrade our phones.  When that time comes you’ll probably want to sell your iPhone.  You may try eBay or Amazon for instance.  In order to get the best price you will need to be honest about its condition.  If you scratched or dented it trying to make repairs this has to be disclosed.  If a feature is not working because you failed to fix something correctly, this would need to be stated.  As you can imagine you would not get top dollar unless the iPhone is in like-new condition.  You’ll want to include several photos when you list it.  The pictures will make the difference if you want top-dollar.  If you have taken good care of your iPhone the potential buyer will be eager to pay you a good price for it.
