Because of the evolving technology, gone are the days of cellphones seemingly made of concrete. For instance, the old Nokia devices can still make calls and send text messages even after getting soaked and dropped. On the contrary, smartphones now are smaller and thinner and have more vulnerable parts that make them more susceptible to bugs, crashes, and damages over time. Below are a few of the most common causes of phone damage.
1. Dropping your phone
Many mobile phone users have experienced dropping their phones at least once and some more than they can even count. Whether your phone has landed on the pavement, grass, or flooring, the resulting damage can make your digital device hard to use and potentially making the screen unusable. And although phone cases can provide a bit of protection, they cannot entirely prevent cracks. Fortunately, there is another possible solution for what seems like an inevitable problem. Here at MICI, we provide Phone Insurance to cover physical damage due to accidental phone drops by reimbursing you for the expenses you incurred during your screen’s repair.
2. Letting kids use your phone
Some parents let children use a phone to stop their tantrums or to keep them from being rowdy. However, do not let a child use your phone without your supervision. Kids could mistake your mobile device for a toy, spill food over it, or accidentally drop it, and may cause internal or external damage to it. Studies also show that allowing children to use a phone can cause harmful effects on their health and development.
3. Sitting on your phone
Many phone users like to place their handy devices in their back pockets or tend to leave their gadgets on the couch, not mindful of the risks. This can result in cracked screens, broken internal parts, and deep scratches. Fortunately, MICI’s Phone Insurance also covers damaged phones caused by accidentally sitting on them.
4. Getting your phone submerged in water
Smartphones can experience irreversible issues after they are submerged in water. Surprisingly, even the ones designed to be water-resistant can still get damaged during prolonged submersion. When this happens, it’s best to avoid plugging your device and turn it off for the meantime before powering it on again to prevent short circuits.
5. Spilling liquid on your phone
Spilling liquid on your phone is among the common causes of a broken phone. Unfortunately, just like with any other causes of water damage, this can lead to expensive repairs and replacements. In the case of accidental spills, don’t waste time. The faster you bring it to a phone repair expert, the better off your phone can be. With MICI’s Phone Insurance, there’s no need to pay for the full repair cost of your device. MICI will repay you for your expenses depending on the extent of damage to your phone.
