Have you seen the screen kits online for $10 and been tempted to do the repair yourself in just “20 minutes”? Sure they sell just the outer glass for really cheap, and this one in particular boast it is only a 20 minute repair. It comes with no instructions and refers you to watch Youtube videos. The second picture is what a customer sent me asking to help her out. It turns out it is not a “20 minute” repair, even with the help of the Youtube video. After getting her phone up to speed with a new screen, I decided to go to Youtube and see just how easy this must be. After watching a couple videos on the separation, It is nearly impossible to separate the broken glass off your lcd without damaging it. I had bought special equipment in hopes of being able to change just the broken glass and I ruined about 100-150 lcd screens in the process. If you read the comments on the video you get a true feel for what actually needs to be done. This 20 minute screen kit that comes with “everything” needed does not come with LOCA adhesive or a uv light to cure the new glue. The curing process in itself is 30-60 minutes. It also does not come with an alignment tool to make sure the touch screen aligns perfectly on the lcd screen so it goes back together properly, as there is ZERO tolerance in the assembly process. Don’t be tempted to save big money on the “easy” repair, It is not for everyone, and with kits like this it is near impossible even for professional repair shops.

We repair most devices while you wait, we even welcome you to watch the repair process. While most repair shops encourage you to leave it by saying the repair is going to be 3-4 hours, we welcome you to sit and stay. We work by appointment so we can accommodate everyone to be able to wait on their repairs. While most phone repairs usually occur in under 30 minutes, some models of iPads can take an hour or little longer. We strive to give you the best customer service possible, so we block off plenty of time so we do not rush thru your repair. The photo below shows an iPad Air repaired in just about an hour, while the 3 other repair shops she called required it to be left for 5-6 hours. Call or text 330-866-0446 to schedule your appointment for repair.

We get tons of traffic to our site from people looking to have phones repaired by Radio Shack. Our repairs are a better option for most people in America than Radio Shack. This short blog will spell out why Akron Canton iPhone Repair is a better option for fixing broken iPhone screens than Radio Shack for MOST Americans.
Radio Shack recently started experimenting with in store repairs in select markets. Those markets are very limited, as of the time of this writing it was only roughly 10 cities. Only certain Radio Shack stores in those cities actually repair phones in the store. Dallas/Fort Worth is one of those areas. I called several stores in the area and I finally found a store with in-store iPhone repair after making 9 phone calls. If you have most Radio Shack stores fix your phone, it must be mailed out. In Canton, OH, the representative that I spoke with stated that the fastest turnaround for an iPhone screen repair is 3 days, but they sometimes take up to 10 days. YOU ARE WITHOUT A PHONE FOR UP TO 10 DAYS!!!!
At Akron Canton iPhone Repair you call us to schedule a repair in store OR for our long distance customers, we send you a FREE LOANER PHONE before you ever part with your phone. We aren’t going to send you some cheap flip phone either, it will be an iPhone or another smartphone. Simply call 330-866-0446 and schedule your mail in repair with a FREE LOANER PHONE. This program has taken off since we started it, requiring us to buy more phones to use as loaners.
The best part about our service is that our repair costs far less than Radio Shack and you don’t have to be without a phone for up to 10 days! We cover the shipping for our loaner phone and your phone. Our repair of a broken iPhone 5s screen was $25 cheaper as of 10-06-2014.
You save money on your phone repair vs Radio Shack AND you don’t have to go one day without a phone, even if using our mail-in service.
To schedule your phone repair (mail-in or walk-in) call 330-866-0446 today!

While the name of our business is Akron Canton iPhone Repair leads you on to think we only repair iPhones, we repair most major smart phones. We had many request to repair more devices because “the place at the mall” and other places would not even get these people a quote, because they limited their business to strictly iDevices. While we do not keep inventory of parts for other phones, we can get them from our supplier. There are just too many devices with different colors and different carriers for us to logistically keep it all in stock. No deposit is needed on most orders, just your word is all that is needed, and if your phone is not functioning, feel free to take advantage of out FREE loan a phone if one is available. I order the parts on your word so you do not have to make 2 trips and waste your valuable time to get me a deposit. After your part comes in I will call/text you and make an appointment for repair, most repairs are 30 minutes long. We have successfully repaired many Samsung Galaxy devices, numerous LG G2, Droid MAXX, Evo, and Motorola Razr just to name a few. It is helpful to have the model number when calling for a quote, as several of these devices are very similar but the price range varies.

At Akron Canton iPhone Repair, we repair your device while you wait. There is no need to leave your device with us for days, as with some other places. We schedule appointments so that YOU are the only person that our attention is focused on. Our shop is located in East Sparta, OH, just minutes from Dover, New Philadelphia, Canton, and Massillon.
What makes us different than the shop in the mall?
First, as stated earlier, we schedule appointments, so you do not have to leave your phone or come back in a couple of hours because we are too busy. We keep most parts (including odd parts like extra cameras and charging ports) in stock so that you don’t have to wait for parts to be ordered for your phone. The person running the business is the person fixing the phones, not somebody that is upset about having to work on a weekend. We strive to answer the phone every time it rings unless we are in the middle of a repair. You will never hear “Press 1 for sales, 2 for appointments…” This is the business owner’s full time job, we are not some guy who may have fixed one or two phones, we have repaired several thousand devices just this year. If we break your phone in the process of repairing it, we have assumed that risk, and we replace or repair it (try this with a friend installing a screen). We are in a small town, so you don’t have to put up with the headaches of fighting mall traffic. We offer FREE loaner phones if you are utilizing our mail in repair service We just treat you like we would like our family treated.
If you are interested in scheduling an appointment or utilizing our mail in phone repair service with a FREE loaner phone, call 330-866-0446.

Our website has been flooded lately with traffic from the Columbus, OH area. While our main business is appointments scheduled in our shop, we do have a repair solution for those residents of the Columbus area that want to take advantage of our reasonable iPhone repair pricing.
Akron Canton iPhone Repair offers FREE loaner phones to our customers who utilize our mail-in phone repair services. We mail you the loaner phone, you place your broken phone in the same box and mail it back to us. We repair the broken phone and mail it back to you and then you return the loaner phone. Many carriers charge outrageous money for a loaner while they have to send your phone out for repairs. Other carriers refuse to issue a loaner phone. At Akron Canton iPhone Repair, we try to treat you like we would want our family treated. It is unreasonable to expect a person to not have a phone for up to a week, that is why we started this program that has become wildly successful.
So, if you are one of the many Columbus area residents that has landed on our website, call 330-866-0446 to check our our prices (or view our pricing page) and to inquire about our FREE loaner phone program with mail-in repair.
