Cracked iPhone Screen Ruined Great Golf Day

That sound. The swoosh and thud as a golf club slices through the air, then makes contact with the dimpled ball – that’s heaven for a golfer. Unfortunately for me, that heavenly sound was followed immediately by what is hell for a phone owner – the sickening smack of a cracking screen. As I had taken my swing, my iPhone had slipped from my pocket and landed face down on the sharp edge of the course’s pebbled walkway.

A part of me already knew the screen was cracked but I was hoping against hope as I bent down and flipped my phone over. No luck – a dense network of white lines radiating out from a point filled most of the screen, looking uncannily like a spider’s web. There were commiserations all around as my golfing buddies took turns inspecting it, and everyone agreed that I had to get it repaired immediately.

I still finished the course, albeit not as well as I usually did. That afternoon, I sat down with my MacBook and searched for iPhone repair San Antonio for your smartphone There were quite a few, ranging from the official Apple dealership, to some semi-official stores who were authorized by Apple to repair their products and finally, a large number of others which promised very cheap repairs but did not inspire much confidence. Most importantly for me, only the first two could work on replacing an iPhone without voiding the warranty. (I checked some DIY videos on YouTube but quickly concluded it was beyond my skills.


So, I was left with the choice between the official Apple Store, which would surely charge a premium rate for the service, and one of the few semi-official repair stores which would be cheaper and allow me to retain my Apple warranty while also providing a warranty for any repairs they made. An advertisement for a store located in a mall not very far from my home in San Antonio caught my eye which stated that they would repair Apple iPhones, iPods and iPads of all models.

I made my way there and explained my situation to the guy at the counter. A technician was called over for an initial assessment. My phone was handled with care and the technician seemed to know what he was doing. First, he checked that it was only the screen that was damaged, and that the other internal components were fine. I was told the cost and time required for the repair. They fixed my iPhone, checked that everything was in good working order and completed the billing well within half an hour. I was impressed by their courtesy, efficiency and professionalism. And I learned they also provide iPad repair service as well.

My phone screen now works as well as it did when I bought it. I would say that they are the best people to go to for iPhone repair.
