Why is cell phone repair a necessity?
Consider this. What exactly are you planning to say to your customer when his phone breaks but he is not eligible for an upgrade? “I can’t repair it” or “You’ll have to pay full retail price for a replacement” never sounds good to someone who already feels likes they are spending enough money each month for service. Not to mention the fact that in their minds, the value of the phone is what they originally paid for it which was a greatly discounted price. In this situation you are stuck between a rock and a hard place. What’s going to take place next? They will look for another cell phone repair store in their area that can and will repair their device. At this point you have really lost more than one customer to your competition. You have also lost the friends and relatives of your customer since he will do his part to advertise the store that fixed his phone. But what if you could help your customer and increase your revenues at the same time? Now you can! A thorough knowledge of cell phone hardware, software, and repair theory will put you ahead of most cell phone stores. Your cell phone repair school training will pay dividends well into the future.

What does it take to become a cell phone repair technician?
We would like to believe that anyone can learn to repair cell phones. However, there are some questions that you should ask yourself before proceeding with your cell phone repair school enrollment. Being honest with yourself about the following should give you an idea of how easy or difficult you might find pursuing this sort of endeavor.
Are you comfortable working with devices that use small parts?
“You guys said small but this is really small!” We hear this remark during every class.
Cell phones are assembled using components and screws which are extremely small. Working on an appliance or motor vehicle is one thing. Working on cell phones requires paying attention to and working with parts that do not allow much margin for error. The components that you will be working with might make computer repair look easy in comparison. If you have ever assembled a scale model car or worked on a gadget that fits in the palm of your hand then you should have an idea of the level of detail that cell phone repair requires. You must have perfect up-close vision. If you require corrective lenses even just for reading they must allow you to see small details very clearly.
Are you detail oriented?
As stated above, cell phones provide little room for error. The more capable you are of observing the “big picture” the easier you will find this vocation to be. During our cell phone repair training course we will be with you every step of the way to insure that you are able to perform basic repairs. Later on, when you expand into different types of handsets this attribute will make your job far easier.
Are you able to be patient?
This is crucial to your success. There is no rushing a cell phone repair unless you plan on doing the entire job again without compensation. We believe in doing things right the first time even if it takes a while longer than those who cut corners and sacrifice quality.
Do you have a steady hand?
This is not a deal breaker but it will make your job a lot easier. We do teach methods for keeping your hand steady but if you have problems working with small screws then this is a concern that should be addressed. A good way to determine whether or not your dexterity will be a challenge is to try threading a needle. If you can accomplish this task without using any special tools then we believe that working with the small parts that you will find in cell phones will not be any more difficult.
What people are saying about MD Wireless Cell Phone Repair School
“I am very impressed with the training that M D Wireless offered me. You taught more than the how to, you taught me the basic principles, and how I can learn and improve my skills. Rather than just give me a fish, you taught me how to catch fish, a skill that I will use for a lifetime. I am also incredibly impressed with your willingness to take the time to accept my calls when I got stuck on a repair project. You were really serious about your promise that I could call you anytime with questions because you were quick to respond and spent the time over the phone with me to help me get through the problems I faced on repair projects. You also helped me get my foot in the door with vendors for repair parts, unlocking phones, and flashing. You are always willing to give advice and answer questions about every aspect of my business, from good accounting methods and competitive pricing to repair management. Well worth the money paid, and recommended for anyone who wants to either start a business or just learn more about cell phone repair.”
My phone is constantly ringing for cell phone repair. I have increased my monthly revenue by 15% already.
I just wanted to take the time again to say thank you I am very glad someone like you is out there to train people. The cost of your class is nothing compared to the money I’m making right now. Thanks again so much and Happy Holidays to you and yours.”
