Locking your Notes

by Mrphix on January 5, 2017 , Comments Off on Locking your Notes

Apple makes some of the most popular devices out there, but so few people know exactly how much you can do with them. For example, iPads and iPhones allow you to password protect your notes, so that only you (or those with the correct password) may access them.

Here is exactly how you do it…

Step 1. Open the “Settings” on your device.

Step 2. Scroll down and select “Notes“.

Step 3. Tap on the “Password” option.

Step 4. Enter your New Password into the top password field, then type it again in the “Verify” field. Finally, type in a hint so you are sure to remember the password. Then, if you have a device that supports Touch ID you can select whether or not you would like to be able to lock and unlock your notes with your fingerprint “Touch ID”. By default, this option is turned on, to turn it off, simply slide the slider to the left. When you are finished press “Done” at the top to complete the setup.

This is an important feature if you have sensitive or personal information stored in your notes. This can make it a lot more challenging for someone to access them without your permission. By adding a password to your notes you are adding an extra layer of privacy and protection to your device.

Why Mr Phix Drives the Competition Crazy

by Mrphix on September 29, 2015 , Comments Off on Why Mr Phix Drives the Competition Crazy

 

Reasons Why Mr Phix Drives the Competition CrazyMany are wondering why Mr Phix drives the competition crazy. The fact is that it is not easy being the highest rated electronics repair shop in the Wilmington, NC area. However, Mr Phix has managed to achieve this through hard work, dedication and an exemplary customer satisfaction record. Our team of electronic gadgets repair technician experts have more than 15 years of serving the Wilmington, NC community. Our ultimate goal has always been to make sure each client leaves our stores not only with their repair or problems solved, but also completely satisfied. Unlike other places, Mr Phix is willing to take a loss in some cases to ensure the job comes out perfect and their phones, tablets or computers are restored just like before the issues occurred.
These are some of the many reasons why Mr Phix, the screen replacement experts, drives the competition crazy on a daily basis. Our adversaries have gone through great lengths to disparage and discredit our high ratings. Some of them have even resorted to writing false, negative reviews on our Google + page. Nevertheless, our loyal customers continue to make Mr Phix one of the most trusted and highest rated iPhone, Samsung and tablet screen replacement stores ever.
There is no advertisement stronger than customer satisfaction and word of mouth. Customers, when satisfied with the services, products or help they received will always speak about it and tell their friends and family. Mr Phix has known this for years and understands the value of having each client be treated with respect and value, not just as a source of income.
Our competition cannot understand the fact that we give every customer a lifetime guarantee on every screen replaced or work done by our staff. This move is unprecedented in the electronics repair business and not many are willing to do so because it may mean losing money if anything ever happens. However, Mr Phix will gladly forgo a profit so that the customers will have peace of mind and tranquility about the repair done on their mobile, tablets devices or computers.
Our competition, in their quest to only make money, ends up using low quality replacement parts. This in turn results in causing more problems because the low quality parts eventually break or even work properly. They also use people to do repairs without experience or the real knowhow behind screen replacements. We take our time on all our work done to make sure it is done right the first time. Mr Phix understands that mobile phones, tablets and computers are not just electronic gadgets to people, but rather an extension of their lives in many cases. This is because so many of us have so much personal, precious and irreplaceable information on our devices. Even more so for people who use them for business or work. Nothing can ever replace a video or photo from a birthday or special occasions that you may have stored on your phone, tablet or computer. Losing those files can be very disheartening and frustrating which is why it is so imperative to have your device fixed by a reputable and knowledgeable technician.
These are some of the reasons why Mr Phix drives the competition crazy, because we know what your devices mean to you and we treat them like you would; with care and if they were our very own. Until competitors learn that, we will continue to drive them crazy and we will continue to be the highest rated repair stores in the Wilmington, NC areas. All thanks to you, our customers.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Tips, Tricks and Hints

by Mrphix on September 12, 2015 , 1 comment

Samsung Galaxy S6 Tips, Tricks and HintsIf you have a Samsung Galaxy S6 then you are very lucky as it is considered one of the best phones out there on the market right now. The staff here at Mr Phix, the replacement screen experts, have put together some of the best  to help get the most out of your new mobile device.
The reality is that most people who own smartphones such as the iPhone or Samsung can sometimes spend a long time using them without taking advantage of some of the cool features these devices offer them. From shortcuts to extra feautures, we will help you become a Samsung S6 master.

– Get That Theme
You can change the look of your phone instantly by changing its theme. Simply tap and hold any empty space on your S6 home screen to bring up the options. You will also be able to change the grid and screen size. Although only 3 themes come with the phone by default, you can always find tons of them by following the link to the store at the right side of the top of the themes page. You can even create your very own themes as well with a new theme tool.

– Split Screen Enabling

One of the cool things the S6 offers is the abilty to view and use more than one app at the same time. By simply holding on to the multitaksing button at the bottom or the apps for a few seconds, you can enable split screen. The top half of the screen will display whatever you were originally on while the bottom half of the screen lets you choose the other. You can even resize the space of each screen.

– Navigation Streamline

Customizing your Samsung S6 to reflect what functions, shortcuts and features you want to have easy access to in your quick settings is one of the first things you should do with your phone. By pulling down the notification shade and tapping on Edit, you can get rid of the stuff you dont want and add what you need most. Tap done when you are satisfied with your new menu.

– Fingerprint Sensor

There is no easiest, quickest or more awesome way to secure and lock your S6 than by the fingerprint sensor. Simply go to Settings = Lock Screen and security = Screen lock type = Fingerprints. From here follow the instructions and secure your phone with your prints. It is best to use your thumb so you can easily unlock your phone with one hand. You can also add a password option.

– Please Do Not Disturb

Another great feauture is the do not disturb mode. In Settings = Do not disturb mode you can choose which calls to allow, no calls or only calls from a expecif person. You can even schedule the hours your phone will go in Do not disturb mode such as when you are at work.

– Keep Out

We all have some private photos or things on our phone we do not want nosy people looking at when they take hold of our phone. Simply go to Settings = Privacy and safety = Private mode and chose what people can see. Best of all, you can use your fingerprint to lock your private content.
– Samsung Gestures

You can control a few actions your Samsung S6 makes simply by using gestures. If you go to Settings = Motions and gestures you can find some really cool options such as:

  • Flip your S6 over and you can quickly silence it.
  • Use a palm swipe to capture a screen shot.
  • If you missed a call or message, Smart alert will send you a vibration alert whenever you pick up your phone.
  • Open a contact and simply lift your phone to your ear to call them with the Direct call gesture.

These are just a few of the many wonderful features that the Samsung Galaxy S6 offers its users. Check back with us as we are always updating and adding hints and tips guides for all of your mobile devices like the iPhone 5, 5S and 6 as well as iPads and Samsung devices.
Remember, in case you ever drop your phone or your screen shatters, breaks or cracks, we here at Mr Phix can replace it. Best of all we guarantee our work for the lifetime of your phone.
