While it’s tempting to repair a phone by yourself, there are some major downsides to repairing a phone on your own. Unlike other electronics or items that may be simple to repair or replace such as swapping a car air filter, repairing a phone is more complex because there are many small, moving parts. Repairing a phone on your own will likely lead to more damages to your phone and create more financial burdens. Hence, it’s recommended to hire a professional to repair your phone instead.
Here are the top four reasons why you shouldn’t repair on your own.
1. You may void your warranty
When you attempt to repair your phone, you’re likely voiding your phone warranty. Voiding your warranty means that your phone manufacturer won’t replace or repair your phone for free if your phone experiences malfunction in the future.
Even if you find voiding warranty acceptable, we’d still recommend you to not repair the phone on your own. As mentioned above, repairing a phone requires a variety of tools and equipment and the right workspace alongside deep knowledge and experience in phone repair. You’ll likely damage your phone more and worsen the situation if you attempt to repair your phone without the right equipment, workspace, and experience.
While a phone repair with CaseMogul or another repair shop would also void warranty, CaseMogul’s repairs also come with a lifetime warranty from us.
2. You don’t have the expertise or equipment
If your phone has issues beyond the scratch of the surface such as a cracked screen, you’ll require more in-depth knowledge and more advanced equipment to repair the phone. Phone issues due to software or hardware failure requires custom cooling and heating techniques and additional tools to repair the phone. The average phone user doesn't have the suitable tools and table space and conditions to facilitate such a phone repair. Hence, it’s more beneficial to hire a trained expert that’s equipped with the right tools and workspace to repair the broken phone. Most trained phone repair technicians can repair a phone efficiently and precisely because they have the right tools alongside hundreds of hours of experience.
3. You could damage your phone even more
As mentioned above, you will likely damage your phone more if you attempt to repair a phone yourself, particularly if you haven’t had experience with repairing phones. Each phone encompasses hundreds of moving parts and repairing a phone requires diverse and deep knowledge and experience.
A possible scenario for damaging your phone further is that if you have a cracked iPhone 11 Pro screen and you want to replace a new screen yourself, you may replace the screen incorrectly. You may place the screen using the wrong side or contaminate the screen with debris, making the screen muggy when the screen is installed on your phone. Moreover, you may end up cutting yourself by the glass shards.
These issues will cost your more money to replace your screen down the road. It’s significantly easier and economical to hire a professional instead to replace your screen or repair your phone.
4. Difficult to find the Right Tools Online
If you plan to purchase tools online to repair your phone, there’s a good chance that you won’t purchase the right tool or equipment specific to your phone issue. There are different types of tools and of various qualities available online and it’s difficult for an individual who’s purchasing a phone repair tool for the first time to determine the right tool and quality of the tool. Buying the wrong tools and attempting to repair your phone using the wrong tools will likely damage your phone more and waste your time and money. The easiest and most economical approach to repair your phone is to hire a professional phone repair technician and ask him or her to repair the problem once and for all.Need phone repair help?
