The common challenges every mobile phone owner face include, but are not limited to, limited battery life, charging port problems, broken screen, web connectivity problems, unresponsive touchscreen or flickering display, water damage and software problems which may cause dropped calls or phone freezing.

Fees vary depending on the damage on the phone or the parts that need to be replaced. Repair duration also varies. Some phones can take only days to repair, while others take weeks before you can get it back.

Handy Hints:

• Phone problems include flickering display, etc.
