A Good Phone System is a Must for Any Business

When I decided to open a shop to sell my hand-made clothing and accessories, I knew I would learn a lot of lessons along the way, since I don't have a business background. One mistake I made when opening my shop was having just a single phone line. I really didn't think I needed an intricate phone system, as I just have a small shop. One day a customer came in my shop and told me she had been trying to call my shop for days, but she never received an answer. She told me the others had been calling too, and the rumor was that I had closed my shop. I learned that my single line was leading to unhappy customers and even rumors that I went out of business! I then invested in a good multi-line phone system and haven't missed a call since. Enjoy my blog!

Pros And Cons Of Sending Your iPhone Somewhere To Be Repaired

iPhones and Apple tablets have something in common; screens that cannot and do not withstand blunt force trauma. If your iPhone has recently met with an unfortunate accident and the screen is badly damaged, you have three options. Trade it in for a new one, get an expert smartphone repair person to repair it, or send your phone out to an iPhone repair service company. Here are the pros and cons of mailing your iPhone to a repair company.

If You Do Not Back It Up, Your Information Is Lost

Most phone repair companies request that you back up your phone, factory reset it so that no personal information is present on the phone, and then make sure it is unlocked before you pack it and ship it. If you forget to back it up, the repair company will not do it for you. Then everything on it is lost and/or may be viewed by others.

You Will Need To Pay For Extra Postal Services

Above and beyond the repair fees, you may want to pay for extra postal services. This includes insuring your phone to the max while it is being shipped to the repair company, and putting tracking information and "signature required" on it so that the recipient has to sign for the phone's arrival. If your phone vanishes, you have proof if you pay for certified delivery. Unfortunately, these extra postal charges make it more expensive to fix the screen on your phone.

It May Take Weeks To Get Your Phone Back

You do not know how many phones and tablets the out-of-state repair company is working on, which means yours could be in line for two to six weeks. Can you go that long without your phone? Most people cannot.

Mail-In Repair Companies Are Often Cheaper

When it comes to repairing phone and tablet screens, these companies offer a competitive rate that cannot be beat locally. Additionally, they may frequently offer discounts for first-time customers. If you can get a deal like this for fifty percent off, the extra postage you pay to get the phone there may be worth it.

You May Not Be Charged Until Your Phone Is Fully Repaired

While your checking account or e-payment account may be dinged a small amount of cash to verify that it is an active account, most of these out-of-town phone repair companies will not charge you until the repairs are complete and your phone is back in your hands. If there are any issues, you can call them right away and open a trouble ticket, which gets you free and insured shipping back to the repair company. If the phone was not properly repaired, or it arrives back on your doorstep damaged, they often fix it for free.
