It’s a fear shared by many owners of Apple products. That coveted and costly gadget slips from your fingers and hits the pavement or tile floor or any number of methods that can make your phone or tablet meet an untimely demise.
For River Hills Realty broker, Jeff Chandler, it’s not only a fear, but a reality. Chandler says he constantly forgets his iPhone is in his lap while he’s driving and then it crashes to the ground when he gets out of his car.
When he finds himself needing his iPhone repaired, he visits iGeeks, located in River Hills Plaza at 4367 Lynx Paw Tr. in Valrico. He has had his phone repaired there at least five times and is always a satisfied customer.
“The technicians are very knowledgeable, affordable and I get my phone back within 24 hours,” he said.
IGeeks owner Bernard Davis says he repairs approximately 50 iPhones a week, most with broken screens.
“We get a lot of repeat customers,” he said.
The store repairs not only iPhones, but all Apple products, including Apple computers.
Bernard Davis, store owner, says it can be more economical to repair a device than buying a new one. Repairs come with a lifetime warranty and are completed with top-quality parts.
“We use all OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts, no after-market cheap parts,” said Davis, who completed training by Apple to repair its products.
In addition to repairs, Davis can also customize your iPhone by replacing its plain black or white housing with a wide variety of colors, substituting the housing including the front glass, back cover and home button with whatever color combination tickles your fancy.
A 20% discount is offered to all students.
The store is open Tuesday – Saturday from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Customers can visit the store, mail in their device or schedule for pick-up and delivery service.
