It can't be denied that cellular phones, otherwise known as hand phones or mobile phones, have become our veritable companions and indispensable BFFs in today's world. Forgetting or losing one's phone is considered akin to disaster, with a very real threat of lost contacts (business and personal); that is, unless you are one of the few that religiously keep hard copies and backups of personal/business network information.

And no matter how careful we try to be in handling our phones, we sometimes accidentally drop them, sit or step on them, and even forget our personal identification number or PIN.

Mobile phone issues that remain unresolved can be taken care of by a number of cellular phone service providers all over the UAE. They not only sell electronic gadgets but also offer repair and maintenance services covering most, if not all, cell phone makes and models.

Services range from problems involving the LCD or screen (for cracked/malfunctioning screens), power/charging, connectivity, keypads, audio-related issues (volume, sound, etc.), software upgrades, to unlocking (PIN/PUK), and more. They can also troubleshoot problems arising from physical damage or liquid damage such as when you accidentally drop your phone in the sink or toilet.

Depending on the extent of the damage or complexity of the problem, clients can wait to get their unit repaired, or claim it within 24 hours. Some companies even offer pick-up and drop-off services at little or no extra cost.

Handy Hints:

• Cell phones have become an indispensable gadget

• Phone retailers offer repair/maintenance services

• Fee and length of time depend on type of damage
