iQue Repair’s veteran technicians tend to various models of iPods, iPads, and iPhones with prompt, often same-day repairs and services. With an extensive knowledge of Apple products and a 90-day warranty on all parts and service, the team can perform a full array of services—from mending broken screens to overhauling stuck buttons—as well as prevent future breakdowns with cleanings and maintenance. As an extra safety precaution, patrons can register for a two-year unlimited-repair plan, or they can guard against drops and failed hacky-sack demonstrations with impact-cushioning cases. A mail-in program complements the shop’s typical walk-in structure, allowing out-of-towners to have broken electronics refurbished and returned via priority mail.
Humans in pain go to a doctor, dentist, or the grocery store's ice-cream aisle. Electronics go to Everything Wireless. The company's technology gurus can upgrade a computer, replace a screen, or repair water damage incurred while bobbing for Apple iPhones. Clients may also stop in to unlock a new phone or sell an outdated one.
Presented by iQue Repair, iSmart protection plans safeguard clients from costly repair and replacement fees with two-year protection plans for most Apple iPhones, iPads, and iPods. Repairmen swap out shattered iPhone 4S glass for fresh screens and replace iPad batteries with powerful nuclear generators not yet available for Android devices. The shop repairs devices whether they were broken before acquiring protection or after, and its philosophy of repair versus replacement saves cash for clients who would otherwise spend money on expensive at-sea burials for dilapidated iPhone 3Gs. Clients can easily file claims at any time by mailing the device in for a swift assessment, repair, and free two-day priority return mail or by bringing their injured electronics to an iQue Repair location.

In addition to proudly displaying patrons’ finished pieces, they offer a diverse class curriculum that equips crafters of all ages and levels to confidently embroider patterns, operate sewing machines, and free hopelessly tangled kittens from balls of yarn.

The store’s inventory of phone accessories—such as Skullcandy brand phone cases ($15–$40)—keep devices polished and protected. Patrons can also commission a screen repair for a Samsung, Motorola, or Android phone ($59–$139), or fix a water-damaged handheld after a GPS-enhanced bout of marco polo in the pool.
