Schools Look for Affordable Solutions to Broken iPads
As schools and universities across the country issue iPads to their students for use in the classroom and at home, damage is inevitable.
“Middle-school kids are the worst,” says Kimbrell, laughing. “Who knows why, but for some reason they just can’t resist taking the iPad out of the case when they get home. And then it drops.”
But broken glass is just one of the problems that can take a student offline for days, sometime weeks if the iPad has to be sent back to Apple or taken to an Apple store. Fixing cracked digitizers, correcting home button issues, replacing LCD screens, troubleshooting battery problems, mending faulty volume switches, cleaning stuck headphone jacks or gummed-up dock connectors, and power charging issues can kids back to their iPad apps, assignments, and books.
“We can fix any iPad problems within 24 hours of receiving the device,” says Kimbrell. “Not only that, but we charge a flat rate of $89 per iPad, which is 40 percent less than Apple charges for repairs that can take days, if not weeks. And we offer free return shipping. It’s fast, affordable, and thorough. Your iPads will look and run like they were brand new when you get them back.”
Kimbrell does not that faulty logic boards and water damage can be more expensive in some instances, and encourages students not to take their iPads in the bathtub, shower or hot tub.
Webscouts also offers a 60-day warranty on all workmanship.
“I’ve been working with Michael Kimbrell for years. He’s the only technician in town who can get my iPad back up and running before the next school day so my kids can do their math drills and log their homework.”
—Sue Spengler, 7th and 8th grade teacher, The Little School on Vertigo, Colorado Springs.
