Where To Get Your Phone Fixed In Downtown State College

One of the worst feelings in the world is dropping your phone on the cold, hard ground and picking it up to see that your once-pristine screen is now shattered.

Cracking your screen, regardless of how it happened, will require an expensive repair, which could be difficult to find if you’re stuck in State College. The nearest Apple Store is nearly 100 miles away from downtown, but even if you don’t want to take a road trip or go home, you still have several options for fixing your broken phone.


Located on South Allen Street, PCQuikFix is the most versatile phone repair shop in downtown State College.

The store fixes phones, but can also fix laptops, desktops, tablets, and even video game consoles. They can fix almost any kind of device; a more specific list of devices can be found on their website.

Speaking from personal experience, this store fixed my computer when its hard drive corrupted last year. My laptop has worked perfectly ever since, and the repair only took a few hours to complete.

As far as phones are concerned, the store can fix a number of issues your phone may have. Some of the issues it can fix include, but aren’t limited to, cracked screens, water damage, malfunctioning charger/headphone jacks, and battery issues.

The store is open six days a week. Weekday hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and it is also open on Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

P2P Computer Solutions

In addition to PCQuikFix, P2P Computer Solutions can also help you with your phone repair needs. Located on East College Avenue, this store specializes in computer repair, but also offers cell phone repairs.

The store is able to repair almost any problem your phone has, including cracked screens, charger/headphone jack problems, and water damage.

While its website is down for maintenance right now, you can call P2P Computer Solutions at (814) 308-8484 for any questions you have about what they offer.

P2P Computer Solutions is open on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., but does not offer weekend hours.

If you have access to a car and can access areas outside of downtown, other options include I-Cell Repair at the Nittany Mall and iRegen Cell Phone Repair on Pike Street just outside of campus.

Broken cell phones are a problem most people experience at some point, but thankfully, State College has plenty to offer to remedy your personal phone nightmare.
