Water Damaged Device – What to Do
Having a water damaged device can ends its life. It’s a hard thing to take, especially if the device is fairly new.
Back a few years ago my sister had gotten a new phone but its life ended when it fell into the toilet. Unfortunately, that phone didn’t have a long life or any insurance on it. Rice didn’t take care of the wetness of the plunge the phone took so she ended up buying a brand new cell phone.
Then there was my brother-in-law’s phone that ended its life in a cup of coffee. Don’t ask – it wasn’t even his fault – it was his dad’s. That ended up costing him a lot of money too – as the insurance on the phone required a pretty hefty deductible before he could get another. That’s not to mention the monthly charges he was incurring on the insurance.
There are some great tips to help increase your phone’s survival rate, but if you find yourself unable to resuscitate your beloved device head to Gazelle. Gazelle has you covered with ‘like new’ devices at an affordable price – saving you a lot of money.
These devices are put through an industry-leading 30-point inspection to make sure that all the phone’s features are fully functional. In addition, you’ll have the peace of mind with a 30-day risk-free return period in the event you’re not happy with the product. You’ll also enjoy there being no contracts or strings attached to these devices.
Gazelle also offers refurbished iPads. This may be a great choice for the teen! My teen was allowed to take my iPad to school for schoolwork – only to have her come home one day and tell me that the screen was cracked because she forgot she was attached to the iPad with her headphones when she got up from her desk!
So if you’re in need – check out what Gazelle has to offer. You could be saving yourself a lot of money.
