It’s so pretty. Solid. Beautifully constructed. Glass. Aluminum. Touch sensitive. Takes better pictures than that $700 camera you bought last year.
iPhones (or their Samsung counterparts) are truly amazing, and we take them for granted just about every day.
But just when you start getting comfortable with it, it slips out of your hand and crashes into the floor in just the perfect way that concentrates the entire impact on one tiny part of the phone. It lands face down and you pray over and over again as you go to pick it up. You turn it over, and to your overwhelming dismay, the screen is shattered.
We’ve all been there.
But where do you go to get it fixed and make sure that it is done right?
Depending on where you live, there are plenty of options. Below I am highlighting some cell phone repair shops across the Twin Cities that have been recommended by our readers, as well as colleagues of mine.
Maple Grove (Northwest Twin Cities Metro)
Device Pitstop of Maple Grove
13732 83rd Way N
Maple Grove, MN 55369
I have personally had several Apple devices repaired here and they rock. Turnaround times are phenomenal and pricing is great, too. I was so happy with my experience that I brought the staff a Redstone gift card. I live in Golden Valley and will forever go to this store. Don’t believe me? Check out the review I left them on Google about 2 months ago:
Device Pitstop is a franchise headquartered out of Minnetonka, and I am all about supporting local businesses.
CPR Cell Phone Repair
16605 County Rd 24, Suite 209
Plymouth, MN 55447
I know the owner personally (I swear this is not biased!) and have only heard good things from people after referring them to this location.
Device Pitstop Minnetonka
13023 Ridgedale Dr
Minnetonka, MN 55305
Device Pitstop Eden Prairie
8252 Commonwealth Dr
Eden Prairie, MN 55344
5 stars on Google and several people recommended them. ‘Nuff said.
North St Paul (Northeast TC Metro)
Device Pitstop Maplewood
2950 White Bear Ave #6
Maplewood, MN 55109
Gophermods iPhone & iPad Repair
3250 Denmark Ave
Eagan, MN 55123
What’s not to like here. Fantastic reviews on Google and they started the business as students while attending the U of M.
Device Pitstop – Burnsville
1603 County Rd 42 W
Burnsville, MN 55306
Yes, another DP location. What can I say? People recommend them.
After looking back through the article I noticed it was a little heavy on the Device Pitstop mentions, but that’s just the way the cookie crumbles. They were consistently one of the highest rated on Google in terms of reviews and tons of people responded with them as their top choice. If you have a cracked screen like I did, just go get it taken care of. It makes you feel like you have a brand new phone, which is something you normally only get to experience once every 2-3 years.
