Sometimes it may be necessary for you to either repair iPod or seek the help of someone else that can repair iPods. These devices are considered to be expensive by many consumers, so if you can actually repair the iPod then you will be able to save some money, not to mention everything that you have stored on your device


There is not one set of rules that will help you with the problem. You have to first diagnose the problem with your iPod before you can figure out how to repair it. There are troubleshooting manuals located on the Internet that can help you with this first necessary step to repair your iPod.


Once you have diagnosed the problem, you then need to identify which device it is that you have and locate the repair manual for that device on the Internet. Just search the keywords "repair iPod" to help you locate the information you need.


Once you find the manual, you can then try to repair your iPod yourself. Sometimes the problem is very easy to fix, and doing the work yourself can save you a lot of money. You must follow the instructions carefully to ensure that you do not further damage your device. If you are unsure of what you are doing, you should seek the help of someone who does.


There are many people who specialize in repairing iPods. They will be able to fix your electronic device; however, you will have to pay them. The type of damage that is done to your device will determine how much that you will have to pay the repair shop to fix it. In some cases, it may be better for you to just purchase a new iPod. In other cases, it can be repaired for a reasonable price.


A lot of people may want to try to repair their iPod instead of purchasing a new one for many different reasons. Having to upload or download all of your songs again can be a pain. Plus, you have already paid for them. People use their iPods for different things, and they do not want to lose the information that is contained on them. If they knew that there was going to be a problem with their device, they could have hooked it to the computer and saved what they wanted to; however, sometimes you can't always do this.


How to repair iPods can be learned by doing research on the Internet. There is a wide variety of information available on the Internet that can help. If you can't find any information pertaining to your specific problem, then finding a professional who specializes in repairing iPods will be in your best interest. Just make sure that if you do try to do the job yourself, that you have the right tools and sufficient understanding of what you are doing. You would hate to do further damage to the device.

How To Fix Broken Push Notifications On Oppo Phones


So you've purchased an Oppo device. You like the build quality, and all the gimmicks the camera(s) can do, but you're realizing that you no longer receive notifications for Whatsapp, or Wechat, or Facebook? Welcome to the world of Chinese Android phones, in which their desire to offer you long-lasting battery life comes at the expense of sending you push notifications. The culprit is the aggressive battery optimization feature that kills background apps (to stop them from draining battery) completely. You see, on most phones, like the LG G6 or say Sony Xperia XZ Premium, you never really truly kill apps. Even when you "clear" them from your app switcher, they still lurk in the background in order to push notifications as soon as they become available. On Chinese phones, there is no mercy. The apps get the ax if they're not actively running. So if you get, say, a WhatsApp message, but the app has been killed, you won't see new messages until you open the app. Needless to say, this is a huge problem for people who may need to receive messages or emails in a timely manner.


There is, fortunately, a way to work around that pesky battery manager. Just follow the four steps and you'll soon be getting notifications as soon as your messages arrive.


Step 1:Go to settings --> advanced settings --> battery manager --> protected apps, then find the app you don't want to be killed, and "protect" it. This is essentially "whitelisting" the app, aka telling Oppo, "hey, this app is useful, please don't kill it."


But that's not enough. Oppo's software will still kill the app unless you take two more steps.


Step 2:Go to settings --> apps --> advanced --> ignore battery optimizations, then find the app and ignore it. Don't be tricked by the misleading wording, "ignoring" the app actually means allowing it to run, because you're telling the battery optimization function to "ignore" that app.


Step 3: Go to settings --> notification panel & status bar --> notification center, then find the app, then activate "allow notifications" and also "priority display". You have to activate the priority part too to make sure you get notifications. I've tried just activating allow notifications but not priority and I still didn't get notifications from that app.


Step 4: This is going to sound absurd to you if you've never used a Chinese phone ... but you basically have to lock the app in the "recent apps overview" panel, so that it is essentially always running in the background (don't worry, modern smartphones have enough RAM to be able to keep a couple of apps running at all times without bogging down). To do this, open the app from which you want to receive notifications, hit the square (aka 'app overview") button on the navigation bar, then pull down on that app to lock it into place. From here on out, even if you're "clearing all apps," the ones you've locked will remain.

Is Cell Phone Repair Worth It?

Having your handheld device repaired can be better and more cost effective than having to pay your mobile phone insurance deductible. If you take a look at the price of a mobile device out of contract you'll see that these little devices aren't cheap at all, and in fact many of them cost over $500 USD! That isn't the price that you paid for your phone though, is it? That is because the stores that sell mobile phones get paid for every contract that they sign you up for, and if you terminate your contract early they'll still get their money. handheld device insurance can be a good investment if you lose your device, but with sites like eBay, Craigslist, and amazon it can be cheaper to get a new handheld device than making an insurance claim. So, is cell phone repair worth it?

Did you break you digitizer by dropping your phone? Many people every day drop their phones on the pavement, in the toilet, and places that are way beyond me. Now, to get your digitizer repaired by a cell phone repair specialist this will cost you under $120 USD on an iPhone 4. The cost to have your insurance replace your iPhone with a refurbished device is $180 for an iPhone 4 if you have your insurance through Assurion. This does not include your monthly deductible that you have been paying every month through your carrier, and they make money off of that too. I've found that the average monthly premium price is around $10 USD even for your iPhone 4. A little bit of elementary math will show you that having your digitizer replaced by a mobile device repair specialist is cheaper, and a broken screen is something that Apple will not cover under their warranty.

I know you must be thinking that having mobile device insurance is a rip-off, and it can be depending on your view of the situation. These phone insurance companies buy broken phones in bulk, and repair them. Then they ship one of those mobile phones to you. I have taken apart a couple of those refurbished phones, and some are missing screws, show signs of water damage, and the list could go on and on. If you lost your cell phone you could get a used one off of one of the sites stated above for about the same price as your deductible. With handheld device repair becoming more prominent in larger cities, it will become easier for you to find a cell phone repair center near you. I've seen a lot of these device repair agencies pop up over night it seems, and you may want to be careful about who you choose.

I would do my research before I need this type of service, so that way you aren't scrambling to make a decision on a company. I would follow these rules when choosing a mobile device repair company: Do they list their prices on their website? If they do they are more likely not to change their pricing on a regular basis, and they should know their market. Do they offer a warranty? Most of the handheld device repair companies that I have found offer a warranty of at least 90 days. Do they have parts in stock? Any one of these companies that has been around for a while is going to have parts in stock for the more popular phones that they service, because no one wants to wait. Do they take mail in phones? The strongest of these companies are ready to accept phones from anywhere in the world. Most of the time they can get your phone back to you in less time than your insurance can.

We can all hope that we never drop our phones, run them over, or take them for a swim. Honestly the chances of this happening are greater than you finding $5 dollars on the sidewalk. We all may need a great cell phone repair service one day, but we all don't need cell phone insurance. It is a great waste of money, and although it is only $10 a month. Ten dollars a month over a year is the same price of having your screen replaced, and if your a habitual cell phone fumble and miss offender, get an Otter Box!
