Why Repair is the Answer: Consider This
With subsidized plans fading out and leasing your phone becoming more common, many cell phone repair shops still hear this question often.
“You want HOW MUCH to fix my phone?”
What do you tell these customers who pay a monthly fee to lease a device? Educating your customers on the true value of the device, plus the value of their information stored on it, is an important part of the wireless repair business. Help your customers understand the value of their phone and the repair you can provide them much like you did when subsidized plans were lowing the perceived value of smartphones with this poster!

What does leasing your phone mean?
Signing a leasing plan with your cell phone provider is paying to borrow a phone from the carrier. Leasing a phone is an option for those who can’t afford the phone outright to begin with and this plan may even allow you to upgrade your phone more often. What many consumers don’t know is that you don’t have ownership of the device (at least until all payments are made or you pay a buy-out fee) and you are expected to return the device in good working condition.
It is tempting to sign up to lease the newest flagship device. Paying $24 a month may not sound like much but over the course of a 2-year contract you will end up paying for the device at full price. In some cases, you will also need to pay a buy-out fee to own your device. Upgrading is another temptation with these leasing plans but you must return the device in good condition and complete payments before upgrading.
How much does your phone really cost?
It depends on the model and where you purchased the device. Check out these graphics showing the prices of popular devices and the real costs of leasing.
