It is that dreadful second when you hear your phone make full frontage contact with the pavement. You look at it, praying that it isn’t broken as you slowly pick it up. There is nothing quite like shattering your phone screen—take it from someone who has done it a few times. We’ve all been there. Today, I want to share with you what to do when you pick up your phone and the screen is shattered or the speakers break, and some of my favorite ways to keep my phone safe.
When Your Phone Breaks
Take it to a professional. I know there are online tutorials that claim to be a cheap fix, BUT don’t risk ruining your device. I highly recommend Batteries Plus Bulbs as the first place you check out if you need a device fix. The best part is they take walk-ins at their in-store We Fix It® Repair Centers, and if you schedule your repair in advance, online, you can save $10! They have an extremely quick turnaround time, are skilled to work on a variety of devices, and their repairs are backed by an extensive 6-month nationwide warranty on parts and workmanship . I definitely recommend checking them out if your phone breaks and you’re in a bind. With over 700 stores nationwide, there’s most likely one near you! While we all hope that our phones stay in our pockets and off the ground, it just doesn’t always happen.
How to Keep Your Phone Safe
- Invest in a good case and screen protector. Make sure that there is a thick rubber rim around the phone case that will absorb impact. As cute as they may be, many cases really aren’t suited for the job. This doesn’t mean you need something bulky–there are a lot of really fun and cool cases!
- Clean your phone. Guys, when was the last time you cleaned your phone? If you are like most people, your answer is probably “I don’t remember.” Well, let me tell you, your phone is DIRTY. Like really, icky dirty. Don’t let germs, dust and dirt build up on it and in its charging “hole.” Clean it every once in a while with an antibacterial wipe.
- Turn on ”Find My Phone.” Take advantage of phone tracking apps. This will really save your butt when you have left your phone somewhere and cannot find it or if it is stolen.
Until next time,
