    I am wondering if you can help with my son’s phone.
    The charging processor is not working and he is trying to recover data.
    He is autistic! His phone is vital to his existence! He has been creating on it for a very long time. However, some of his data is trapped in this phone.
    He is begging to have it repaired but so far, no one will repair it.
    People are the worst.
    Please, if you can help contact me ASAP.
    I would be so grateful and this would make his year!!!
    Is this a process we should consider? Is there something different we need to repair.
    Do you repair phones?

    Thank you,
    Jill Watts
