Dealing with a broken iPad screen isn’t anyone’s favourite activity! At Lovefone, we hear so many different stories about how our customers’ iPad screens got broken (and have our own personal experiences of doing the same thing ourselves!). Lots of people beat themselves up for being clumsy for dropping their precious iPads and breaking them. I thought the same when the incident happened to me. However, we see so many of these repairs that we can categorically say people shouldn’t feel angry with themselves: it’s just a natural thing to drop things once in awhile – to break a glass, a plate, and so why not an iPad! The reason why I decided to write this survival guide is because lots of people don’t know what to do after their iPad screen breaks. Let me share my friend’s story with you: about six months ago, an ex high-school mate called and asked if we at Lovefone repair iPad screens. She had dropped and broke her husband’s beloved iPad and was panicking so much that she was thinking of buying him a new one before he returned from a business trip. She wasn’t really into gadgets and didn’t know that there are companies who can fix the iPad screen. When I happily announced her we undertake iPad 2, iPad 3 and iPad 4 screen repairs within 2 or 3 hours, she was incredibly relieved and overwhelmed, telling me that, “You’ve saved my life – my husband just loves his iPad so much!” As a life saver(!), it is my duty to share with you, our friends and customers, a survival guide which is meant to be used after you drop and break your precious iPad screen. Broken iPad survival guide 1. If the unthinkable happens to you, and you drop your iPad and crack the screen, first of all, don’t panic! 2. Breathe deeply and … breathe once again. 3. Take a seat and try to calm down. 4. Try to think rationally – nothing is as bad as it seems. If it’s your first experience of this kind, you will probably ask yourself what to do next? "Should I buy a new one?” or “Should I try to take it somewhere to get the screen replaced?” After a drop, in the vast majority of cases there is absolutely nothing wrong with the iPad except for a broken touch screen – so if you don’t want to stump up for a replacement iPad, Lovefone has experienced technicians who can complete your iPad screen replacement in less than 3 hours. 5.
