Safeguard Your Phone: Don’t Break it on Spring Break

It’s the most wonderful time of the spring for many of us: spring break is here! If you’ve got kids out of school (or you’re a student yourself), now is the much-needed time to rest, relax and regroup before the summer starts. Many choose to spend this time on a trip away, while others opt to stay at home, for an (equally enjoyable) staycation, free from stress and obligations.

No matter what your spring break plans may be, odds are it’ll surely be great just to have a change of routine for a few days. With so many incredible things to do on your break, there’s a whole lot of fun to be had!

Unfortunately, there’s also a lot of ways to potentially break your phone on spring break. With so many people, events, and more, trying not to break your phone can be distracting from your vacation time. That’s why we’ve compiled this helpful guide, with simple tricks to use so you’ll avoid a broken phone this spring break, without stress or worry!

If you still regrettably manage to break your phone, there’s no need to worry. Puls is always around to fix your broken devices, no matter when or where. We can come to you wherever – at your hotel, a restaurant, or even at the beach – taking all the stress out of the phone repair process. With Puls, you can get back to enjoying your spring break in no time at all. 


Tropical getaway

Some might say that the most popular spring break destination of choice is by far the tropical getaway. For those living in , there’s nothing better than laying out in the sand (or by the pool) and soaking up some sun. Popular warm beach destinations include Miami, Tampa, San Diego and more.

Yet the most risky factor – water damage! While you lay out along the beach or pool, there’s always the chance that some could splash your device. Not to mention, there’s the risk of getting sand in the precious of your phone at the beach.

Therefore, we recommend keeping your phone in a plastic bag, especially when you anticipate being at the beach all day. The warm temperatures laying under the sun can also cause your phone to overheat, so try keeping it tucked away in a bag, rather than lying in the sun, as much as you can. See our recent post about what to do when your iPhone is overheating if you run into this issue. 


Exploring nature

Another great option many people select on spring break: to be surrounded by natural beauty. There’s nothing quite like taking in beautiful mountains or a sky full of stars for a lovely, relaxing trip. Whether you plan to spend your spring break hiking, camping, or exploring a national park, there’s still unfortunately plenty of places to break your phone on a rustic spring break. 

Examples of places you might want to avoid breaking your phone include: slippery rocks, muddy treks, steep climbs, and more. If you can, try leaving your phone at home during more rigorous hikes or slippery places to avoid an accidental screen shatter. As tempting as it might be to snap a photo of the gorgeous views, it’s worth it to have a fully functional phone. 

Plus, you’ll be able to take in the moment much more authentically, like you did back in the day (before phones)! If your phone still somehow gets destroyed, don’t worry! We can provide you with on-demand phone repair services nearly anywhere – whether it’s near the Rocky Mountains outside of Denver, or near the Grand Canyon in Arizona.


Nightlife experience

For many college students, spring break is a time to let loose and party! Living it up in a city full of wild nightlife surely won’t disappoint. Yet with many party cities, the risk of a drunken liquid spill, fallen phone, or accidental screen shatter is always around. 

Therefore, if you’re planning to visit a city that’s big on nightlife such as Las Vegas, Nashville or New Orleans, take extra caution! Our best advice to avoid breaking your phone would be to leave your phone at home before a night of frivolity. You’ll probably thank yourself for not texting something you’ll regret in a drunken stupor!

If that’s not an option, there’s still other tactics you can attempt. Try handit it off to a reliable friend for the night, investing in a heavy duty protective case, or turning it off for the night so you’ll be less tempted to use it (and break it!). If none of these work, look to Puls for an on-demand repair that makes things incredibly easy.


Staycation at home

Sometimes, there’s no better vacation than some relaxing time at home.

If your wallet or your schedule won’t allow you to travel this year, a staycation can be a great option! Why spend hundreds of dollars, when you can relax and enjoy your time off at home? Order food delivery, kick back, and binge watch your favorite movies, or catch up on your latest shows for the ultimate staycation at home. 

To avoid a broken phone at home, our advice is simple – don’t stress! Aside from the seemingly obvious cautions, like keeping it away from liquids or unstable surfaces, you shouldn’t have to worry about breaking your phone at home. Instead, focus on your much needed rest and relaxation.

For an added element of convenience, Puls can also mount your TV or setup your smart devices from the comfort of your home! We bring professional technicians to you, so you won’t even have to get up from your comfy couch. Since you’ll be off from work or school, now’s the perfect time to stop putting it off and finally get yours installed.
