Are you having a tough time to get your phone to charge? Are you having to do “the combination” to get it to charge? I would suggest trying a new wire first, or try another phone with that wire to see if it does the same thing. Another common issue on the new style iPhone plugs, is the port in the phone gets filled up with pocket lint and does not allow the plug to make good contact. You can easily see for yourself if this is the case by plugging your wire into the phone, if the shoulder does not rest on the phone, lint is a good possibility of the cause. I clean charging ports out for free. If that is not the problem, I can help you out determine the problem and fix it. A few photos below show the wire in this iPhone 5 not resting in proper place, causing the owner to have to preform a combination to get his phone to charge. The picture of the plug resting fully against phone is after I cleaned the port out, and charging was returned to normal.

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.
