You know that cracked screen that you’ve just kind of left because your phone still works and you hate waiting in line to talk to someone? Well, turns out, you can fix it in 20 minutes to an hour, and when it’s fixed, you get a lifetime warranty on the repairs. And you don’t have to leave your house, or your desk at work, or the coffee shop you sit in writing your screenplay/novel. That sounds very good, right? Of course it does.
We’re not going to send you to a YouTube video of a guy using tools you don’t have to fix a broken phone. Instead, let us introduce you to iCracked, a service that comes to you, like a taxi or a pizza.
And it couldn’t be more simple, really. First, you go to their site and pick your device (iPhones, iPads, iPods and Samsung Galaxy) and location. Then you indicate the colour and service provider, followed by a description of the damage. Then iCracked sends you a quote and when you accept, a connection is made, and you’re on your way to a new screen, battery, power button and more. Heck, they even take care of some water damage, depending on how severe it is.
So yeah, you could totally stand in line waiting for some technician to take your phone and send you away. Or you could meet some guy who is trained to fix phones at a coffee shop (or wherever), get your phone fixed in no more than an hour, and be on your way.
