Jet City Device Repair started in a basement in 2007. In 2008 it became a full-time business with two partners. The first employee was hired in the spring of 2010. Today we have over 20 employees at 6 stores in 2 cities and have fixed well over 100,000 devices.
And now for another big step: We’ve created a new division at Jet City Device Repair dedicated to helping schools get their iPads & Chromebooks fixed. Continue reading “Launching our School iPad & Chromebook Repair Division”
“Help! I just updated my iOS and now my iPhone’s Wi-Fi is grayed out and not working.”
This is a real problem that our customers ask us about and the internet is full of various threads addressing this. Even Apple has a page dedicated to trying to help people with this. Their solution on that page is pretty simple – just reset your network settings. Unfortunately that doesn’t seem to work very often and Apple’s second solution, if your phone is out of warranty, is to buy a new iPhone.
We have another option.
About 18 months ago we announced that we were fixing Samsung Galaxy S3 screens – our first Samsung phone repair. Since then we’ve added the Galaxy S4 & S5 and Samsung Note 2 & 3. All of these repairs include the parts, labor, and a lifetime warranty. Most of these repairs can be done in 2-3 hours (same day repair service if you come into one of our stores).
But it gets even better: You can now get your Samsung glass replaced for 10%-30% less. Continue reading “Even More Inexpensive Samsung Phone Repairs”
A few months ago I wrote a post about why water damage repairs often fail. It also mentioned why we stopped offering liquid damage service. Since then I’ve been in contact with a few people and companies that have let me know the problem with most water damage repairs and how we could drastically improve upon our old process. So like Justin Timberlake might say, we’re bringing water damage back. Continue reading “Speed is the Key to Saving a Water Damaged Cell Phone”
Exciting news: You now get a lifetime warranty on all work done by JCD Repair. And it gets better: this lifetime warranty is being retroactively applied to every device we’ve ever fixed. If you ever have a problem with the part or workmanship on one of our fixes, we will redo it for free.
You heard that right. JCD Repair is now offering a lifetime warranty on all the repairs we have ever done and will ever do.
For almost a year now we’ve been waiting for the cost of an iPhone 5 screen replacement part to drop to a reasonable price. That has finally happened. At first glance, you might not think that price is reasonable (about $100 at the time of this writing and falling) but it’s cheap compared to what it was in early June – when it cost almost $200.
This recent price drop is great news for anyone that has the misfortune of dropping their iPhone 5 and cracking the front glass. It means that you now have a reasonably priced option to get your iPhone fixed.
One of the most common questions we’ve been asked over the past year is, “Do you do the Samsung Galaxy repair?” Until recently, we’ve had to say no because the cost of the replacement part was prohibitively expensive. We’re excited to announce that has been fixed (no pun intended). You can now get your cracked Galaxy S3 screen repaired without breaking the bank (pun intended).
We’ve been getting a lot of calls about fixing broken iPad Mini screens. This is definitely one of those repairs we want to start doing, so we picked up an iPad Mini with a cracked glass. Then did our first tear apart and diagnosed the repair difficulty.
This might be old news to some of you but since December of 2011 we’ve been fixing the cracked iPad screen for people. Not to brag but we’ve gotten really good at it the past few months. It was a tricky repair to figure out and we definitely went through some battles with suppliers. But I can safely say at this point in time, that if you have a cracked iPad, we’re the people to call.
