In our tech-dominated world, there’s a lot of pressure to upgrade your phone to the latest, shiny new model. Despite all of the hype though, there are actually a number of reasons why repairing your current phone may be better than replacing it. Once you decide to have your phone replaced, you face another challenge; how do you find a repair shop that’s actually trustworthy? Learn about the advantages of repairing your phone and why you should trust Batteries Plus with your valuable devices.

Why is It Better to Repair a Phone Than It is to Replace It?

It Costs Less

This one is pretty obvious. New phones can cost upwards of $1,000. Replacing the screen on your current phone will typically cost no more than a couple hundred dollars, while a battery replacement at Batteries Plus can be as low as $69.99. Plus, most of our stores offer additional coupons when you get a battery replacement with another phone repair service.

Repairing Your Phone is Better for the Environment

Smartphones are responsible for a large amount of carbon emissions, most of which are generated during the manufacturing process. This is because smartphones are made of precious metals such as gold, cobalt and tungsten, all of which need to be mined. Repairing a broken screen or swapping out a battery will allow you to keep your phone for a longer period of time, cutting down on its carbon footprint.

Repairing your Phone Can Fix Many Performance Issues

Many times, consumers upgrade their phones in order to solve a performance issue that could just as easily be fixed with a simple repair. Issues such as overheating, a shortened battery life or a phone that won’t hold a charge can all be solved simply by replacing the battery, which is also one of the most affordable repairs you can get.

Why You Should Choose Batteries Plus for Your Phone Repair

1. Batteries Plus Participates in the WISE Certification Program

When it comes to having your phone repaired, we realize you have plenty of options. So, why should you go to Batteries Plus? For starters, our technicians are certified according to the Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association’s WISE certification program. In order to become WISE (short for Wireless Industry Service Excellence) certified, each technician must pass a number of tests that gauge their ability to perform important repair functions.

This means that when you bring your phone to one of our locations, you can be confident that it’s being worked on by a trained professional whose abilities have been tested according to a set of industry standards.

2. Batteries Plus Has Partnered with Samsung

Batteries Plus recently partnered with Samsung as part of their Independent Service Provider program. This partnership provides our technicians with access to parts and repair tools that come directly from Samsung. Samsung also provides our techs with training specific to their devices. Even better, we offer a free Samsung Galaxy battery replacement when you purchase a screen repair on that same phone. Currently, over 600 of our stores are taking part in this program. Call your nearest store or visit their Store Locator Page (see below for link) to find out if they’re participating.
