Our cell phones are with us all the time. Where ever we go we have our phones, even in the bathroom. Accidents happen and phones get broken. Now, you have to decide what you should do next. Repair the phone or get a new one. If the phone is under warranty and there is a manufacturer defect, you’re covered! If not, you have options to decide what you want to do. A local community cell phone and mobile services shop can help you make the decision.
Cell Phone Troubleshooting
If the problem is not an obvious physical issue; i.e. broken screen, hinges, etc; then you should start with basic cell phone and mobile troubleshooting. Does the phone freeze or lock up? Are buttons not working? The number one thing any local community cell phone and mobile services store would tell you is first restart your phone before you do anything else. There are updates that are installed in the background on your phone that may only be installed after a restart. Always try this as your first step for troubleshooting any errors or problems.
Out of Warranty Phones
If your phone is not covered under warranty and there is not physical or water damage done to it, you have to decide to either fix it or buy a new one. Be sure to check with the manufacturer for any major defects, flaws, or, updates. If you have all the basics covered, see if the company you got your phone from offers refurbished phones. The cost of buying a refurbished phone can be significantly less then that of buying a new one.
