You start your day with a fabulous fruit bar from Dudley’s bakery and then decide to hit the trail before heading to the office. As you step off the elevator someone bumps into you and the unthinkable happens. Your smartphone drops, and a spider web of cracks begins to expand from the center of your iPhone screen, the central nervous system that practically runs your life.

Desperate for a solution you head to Google to search for a new iPhone screen and your options appear to be: to pay Apple $199 or, maybe meet in a coffee shop with some stranger you contacted off Craigslist because that is so safe!

Lucky for you there is a much more affordable and convenient solution in today’s store spotlight at DirectFix.com.

DirectFix.com

DirectFix.com was the first company in the world to offer free online repair videos to enable people to fix their iPhone, Blackberry, iPod, smartphone or PDA’s cracked and broken screen for themselves while saving you hundreds of dollars in the process. The free step by step video directions on Youtube have been viewed by millions of people, empowering people to fix their phone themselves while saving 50% to 80% off the price of sending it to the manufacturer to get repaired. And besides the helpful instructions, the site furnishes parts, batteries, cases, chargers, earphones and headsets, not to mention a link to diagnostic and repair service if you don’t care to do it yourself.

Robert Stanley, Founder and Owner of DirectFix.com, started using Miva Merchant in 2001 on version 3 and within a couple of months jumped to an un-compiled Miva Merchant 4 store. Recently DirectFix.com migrated over to the latest and greatest version; Miva Merchant 5.5.

The key to running a successful business is not spending all your time maintaining it. With Miva Merchant I am able to focus on running my business and making money.”

Not All iPhone Repair Directions Are Created Equal

“Taking a metal spudger to a phone and ripping it apart is not the same as instructing someone how to properly fix a phone”

Morgan Hill, Calif. – May 6, 2010DirectFix.com, the leader in “You Fix It” replacement parts, accessories and videos for iPhones, Blackberrys, iPods, PDAs and handheld games, today announced an article on educating people on the difference between ripping an iPhone or other electronic gadget apart with a metal spudger and teaching someone how to properly take apart / repair an item.

In the race to be first in the world of electronic disassembly, especially when a new electronic gadget gets released, people sometime take short cuts. Some websites and companies will travel the earth in order to get their hands on devices first so they can rip them apart and post on the web what the inside of a gadget looks like in the hope that the media or major networks will pick up on the story. In their haste to be first the result is that readers will suffer terrible losses by following these directions that are posted so quickly. When someone actually tries to follow these convoluted directions, which most of the time are missing many keys steps, they end of damaging their own gadget beyond repair with no help from the company or person that posted them.

Things to watch out for when viewing the latest gadget take apart; first, if they are using low quality “still” photos then you might want to look elsewhere. Second, if they ever tell you to use a metal object like a “Metal Spudger” on your nice shinny gadget you may want to find another set of directions. Third, if they do have pictures, then look at them close to see if any of the parts look bent, scratched or damaged from someone ripping it apart instead of taking it apart properly. And finally, if they include written directions, then are they more interested in telling you what is inside the gadget or how to properly fix it?

DirectFix.com has taken the approach of using High-Definition Videos to instruct people on how to properly take apart their gadgets. “Back in 1998 when we did do our directions with pictures it was the only media available to us says Robert Stanley, founder of DirectFix.com. “It is now 2010 and High-Definition video directions are the only way to show someone how to fix their electronic device.” Robert goes on to explain how the use of pictures leaves out so many steps and creates questions in the customer’s mind. “There are no questions when it comes to a free high-definition video as people can watch it as many times as they like”, explains Mr. Stanley.

Mr. Stanley’s company DirectFix.com has over 100 different Video directions and they are adding more weekly. With over 6 million views on his YouTube repair direction videos you might want to consider taking a look the next time you break your gadget and want to fix it yourself.

With millions of gadgets and iPhones sold yearly; users are breaking them on a regular basis. Many electronic devices like the iPhone have quickly become an indispensable, vital personal and business tool, which means breaking one, can be inconvenient and expensive in terms of downtime. With the parts that DirectFix.com sells and their free video directions there is no reason that you could not fix it yourself and save money.
