How can I repair my phone screen?
We recommend that you try the following:
Firstly, assess the damage. Is it scratched or cracked? If it’s just a scratch those are pretty easy to fix yourself.
In the event of a scratch, simply wipe some toothpaste over the mark, gently rubbing it into the screen in a circular motion and making sure you do not remove any surface coating. If this doesn't work, try the same thing with either baking soda or vegetable oil.
If the screen is cracked then you can try and replace it yourself with a DIY phone kit. Alternatively, bring it to your nearest iSmash store and we'll fix it for you, fast.

Why won't my phone turn on?
The reasons your phone may not turn on are plentiful and depend on which phone you have. However, here is a general list of potential solutions for you to try:
Check if your phone is out of charge: it may have run out of battery, if holding the On button results in a flashing battery logo then this is the case, so plug it in and it will automatically come back on.
The phone may be on but the screen isn't working: The easiest way to check this is to hold the power button to shut it off and then turn it back on. If this doesn't fix it move on to the next solution.
If your phone was dropped or got wet: Your phone may have water damage. If it does, leave it to dry for at least 48 hours, ideally longer. Regardless of if this fixes the issue, it is best to bring it into your nearest iSmash store for one of our experts to investigate as, in the long term, your phone's inner circuitry will erode and the device will break.
If none of these solutions have helped, bring it to us at your nearest iSmash store for us to inspect.
