Dumb Things People Do With Their Phones
Smartphones are the must have item in the world of cell phone and mobile devices. With the increased popularity and use of these phones comes many instances where cell phone repair is needed. Here are some of the not-so-smart things people do with their phones that end up sending them scrambling to the repair shop:
Texting While Walking
Most people seem to have trouble walking and chewing gum at the same time. Forget the involved, complex process of writing out a long text. People today are throwing caution to the wind and risking life, limbs, and their phones by trying to text while they are walking. Every week there seems to be a new story or viral video showing someone walking into posts, falling off curbs, slamming into sliding glass doors, stepping out into traffic, falling onto train tracks, and getting into all kinds of trouble. If these people are lucky enough to survive the impacts and avoid a trip to the hospital, they will at the very least be making a trip to the repair shop to try and salvage their phones.
Thinking the Phone is Waterproof
All you have to do is go to the beach, a theme park, or anywhere else where water might come into play and you will see people checking their brains in at the door when it comes to their smartphones and water. How many times have you seen people get off a water ride at a theme park and take their phone out of their pocket with a dismayed look on their face? Did they really think it would survive the trip? How many times do people think a simple Ziploc bag will protect their phone from a dip in the pool or the surf? Phones are not waterproof, and even those that claim to be have limitations to how long they can repel the water. Water and electronics do not mix, yet this is one of the most common iPhone repair requests made.
Playing Hacky Sack
While people may not be kicking their phones around, it is amazing to see what people will do with their cell phones. People toss their phones back and forth for people to use, dropping them, sending them skidding across the table top, or simply throwing them into a bag or purse. Smartphones have come a long way and although fairly durable, various drops and impacts can still cause serious damage to the inner components, knock wires lose, crack screens, and simply shorten the life of the phone. Common sense dictates that highly technical pieces of equipment need to be handled gently and delicately, yet many people seem to forget that this is exactly what their cell phone is. Simply treating a cell phone like the expensive piece of technical equipment it is would go a long way in reducing the number of cell phone repair calls that have to be made.
