Imagine you’re about to embark on a steamy Tinder date, when suddenly you realize that your phone has decided to go dark. Unless you want your date to think you have ghosted them, you better act fast. Don’t worry; we have some tips, tricks, and advice to put you back on track to finding Mr. or Ms. Right (or Mr./Ms. Right Now, we aren’t judging).
If Your Screen Is Broken, Do This
First, you will want to assess how broken your screen is and compare that to how much you love your fingertips. In all seriousness, your phone may still be usable temporarily until you can get it repaired. You can always attempt to purchase a new screen and DIY – but be aware – its not as easy as it looks and you could cause further damage to your phone making your Tinder dilemma even worse! Instead, many people find it easier, more convenient, and more affordable to bring their phone in for repairs. If your phone’s screen is completely trashed and you were thinking of replacing your phone anyway, check if that is an option on your contract. While this may cost way more than a screen replacement, it is a fast fix.
If Your Phone Won’t Turn On, Do This
If your screen is frozen or won’t turn on, you have a few options. First, make sure that your phone is charged. If you have adequate charge and it still won’t turn on, you will want to force the phone to restart. Depending on your phone, this process can vary. Below are a few of the most popular phones and how to force restart them:
· iPhone 6s, iPad, or iPod Touch
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for at least ten seconds. You will see the Apple logo once it has restarted.
· iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Volume Down buttons for at least ten seconds. You will see the Apple logo once it has restarted.
· Android Phone
Hold and press the power button for ten seconds. The phone should restart and turn on shortly after.
