Are you having a hard time getting your iPhone to take a charge? Does the charge cable just not go in all the way, or do you have to hold it in a “special” way to get a charge to take? You are not alone. Everyday iDoctor sees people come in with similar issues. Often times people have been delaying coming in, thinking that it is going to cost a lot of money to fix. 99 times out of 100, these cases can be fixed for free. That’s right, free. The most frequent problem that we see is lint in the charge port. We are happy to clean it out for you at no charge. It’s one of the many complimentary services that iDoctor provides.
Why have iDoctor clean out your charge port, versus trying it on your own? First off, there are tiny pins inside of that port. We have seen a number of people try to get the lint out, just to break those pins off. We can replace the charge port in that case, but that carries a charge (no pun intended). Secondly, we have tools that are perfect for getting into that small space. Finally, we will often use a microscope to make sure we got it all out.
If you are unsure what is going on with your phone, feel free to give us a call, or just stop into one of our three metro area locations!
