Starting Oct. 7, Phone ER will open for business to treat and repair the ACU student body’s smartphone and tablet ailments.
Phone ER, the newest of four Wildcat Ventures companies, is an on-campus smartphone and tablet repair service run out of the Campus Store. Students will be able to drop off their broken phones, tablets, or even laptops up until 3 p.m. on Mondays at the Campus Store’s technology counter, and within 24 hours later, their devices will be available for pick up. Because the Phone ER is partnering with the Campus Store, repairs will be charged directly to student accounts.
Whether it’s a cracked screen, broken home button, or the infamous water damage, students now have the opportunity to have their phones fixed at reasonable prices right here on campus.
This completely student-led, student-run company offers competitive prices in the phone repair market, with repairs of equal professional quality. Any component on the iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy or Android phone will be able to be repaired by Phone ER’s service technicians.
Brandon Avedikian, Masters of Accounting student, is the vice president of Wildcat Ventures.
“In addition to its great accessibility and affordability to students, the Phone ER will provide 90-day warrantees on each repaired product,” Avedikian said.
Cade Isham, Masters of Accounting student and CEO of Phone ER, said, “We’re all college students here, and not everyone has cash just right off the top. This is giving students and opportunity to fix phones on campus with no hassle. It is something that needs to be here.”
With ACU being such technology-driven campus, Islam said Phone ER’s services to the student body will be a great asset to the owners of broken or damaged mobile devices.
