The most obvious reason people bring their iPhone’s to us is that they’ve dropped the phone and broke the screen. Usually it’s cracked, smashed or simply unresponsive due to a sudden fall and we can certainly fix these broken LCD screens the same day. However many people may not realize there are a plethora of other hardware issues that can pop up, especially with older generation devices. Apple Care warranties were introduced to deal with these small issues, but many Charlotte users may find they are not qualified due to having an iPhone 4S or 5. Are you simply being up sold on a more expensive device on an equally more expensive monthly plan? Do you just want your phone back? We can probably help. Below are the other problems we can fixand that if you’re experiencing you shouldn’t abandon your phone for.


Even if you take 100% care of your iPhone, in a year or two you can likely expect the battery duration to dwindle and eventually not last the entire day. Especially with the massive amount of games and social media apps finding a solution to getting your otherwise perfect phone through the day is important to say the least. So you can either continue carrying chargers and cables through the day like your stuck in some foreign country or fess up and admit you need a new battery. In our eyes, this is much easier and more affordable since we can replace iPhone 4S and 5C batteries for as little as $40 and on top of that the repair itself takes about 20 minutes. So go grab lunch and we’ll have your frustrating batteries problem solved in no time!


Our Charlotte iPhone repair technicians are familiar with all the commonly occurring ‘wear and tear’ issues and these include, in addition to the battery problems,  unresponsive buttons such as the home, power and even the side volume knobs. Apple is notorious for shrugging these off, but our Charlotte cell phone repair shops deals with these almost daily and we can assure you they are very fixable. The repair itself can take one hour in most cases and does require a steady hand and the ability to keep track of small screws so definitely do not attempt it yourself. Saving $10 doing it yourself is not a good idea when it could mean messing up your phone. Bring it to us and we can get the repair done in our Charlotte repair shop using high quality OEM replacement parts.

Fixing Your iPhone Is Now More Affordable

iPhone repair has exploded from a cottage industry into a fully fledged acceptable service, especially in the Charlotte area over the past two years. As much as people have embraced the all-purpose smartphone and it’s sleek and simple exterior, it does not respond to falls, drops and general wear and tear very well. Even if you’ve managed to keep the screen intact after a year there are multiple other ways in which your iPhone 4, 5 or even the new bigger 6 model can fail, no excluding the following.

Common iPhone 4/5 Repair Issues

  • Battery Lifespan
  • Unresponsive Buttons – home and power
  • Volume Switch Not Working
  • Speaker phone / Microphone Issues
  • Water / Moisture Damage

Apple does not necessarily support fixing small issues like this, and will of course simply urge you to get a new iPhone, but with the services of a third party cell phone repair shop in Charlotte. With the exclusion of water damage, most other interior components are pretty easy to switch out for an experienced technician. Many of the parts used in your iPhone, even down to the basic lithium-ion battery are available on the open market and even to basic consumers off platforms like iFixit. There is absolutely no reason to junk your trusty iPhone 4S over a worn out battery or sticky home button. These are common signs of wear and tear that pop up after a year, and are quite affordable to fix.

How Much To Fix My Broken iPhone Screen?

The two big questions are how long does a repair take, and how much are you out of pocket and these are definitely worthy inquiries however there are other aspects to be worried about as well. The use of high quality LCD digitizers in your screen replacement can ensure you’re phone lasts longer and you get a better ROI out of your repair. Cheaper screens can break when they make contact with a carpet or other weak drops. Moisture and dust can also make their way under the screen which can lead to ghost touching and other nuisances. With that said, a decent repair shop will also be competitive when compared to Apple themselves so you can expect a repair to come in at under $100 for an iPhone 4/5 and just over for the newer iPhone 6 devices. This is competitively priced when compared to the other options – $200 for a refurbished device through Apple or closer to $800-1K for a new phone through your provider or straight up bought out.
