Wet phones

One of the issues we deal with time and time again is related to water damage. If you’ve dropped your device in the pool, river or sink then you need to take action immediately. Don’t try and turn it on and make sure you place your device in a container filled with rice to draw as much of the moisture out as possible. Visit us at our store in Hobart and we can assess the damage. In some cases, we can make repairs or replace parts to extend the life of your phone or tablet. We will do everything we can to save your device and by bringing it to us, you have the best possible chance. There are plenty of businesses claiming to be able to fix your phone; however, you won’t find the expertise that our technicians have. Be prepared for accidents by remembering to backup all of your data in case it can’t be retrieved. We advise you do this monthly. We also sell waterproof cases as a preventative measure.

Fixing Problems from Other Repair Centres

There are plenty of mobile repair shops out there; however, they aren’t all created equally. Some of the cheaper options may deliver on price but may not have the skill and experience to get your phone or tablet operating again. If you have taken your phone elsewhere and it’s still not working or more damage has been caused we can take a look. We take great pride in our work and guarantee your satisfaction with our work.

Out of Warranty Repairs

We also specialise in out of warranty repairs. Sometimes your warranty won’t cover the damage, or it’s out of the warranty period. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t use your phone for longer. We can assess your phone to see if it’s worth fixing. For a small cost you may get much more use out of it. If your phone is out of warranty, the manufacturer will generally be more expensive to get your phone functioning again. We can do this for you at a fraction of the price.
