Keep iPods and iPhones running longer from $25
OWC technicians will thoroughly inspect an iPod or iPhone and if the examination corrects an operating problem, the repair fee is just $25.

Take Control Of Family Gaming System
Setting up a gaming system to ensure that only appropriate games, music, and movies are played by children can be a daunting task. For under $30, OWC technicians will update a system with the latest features and enhancements, set up user accounts to play online, and set up parental controls for full access and content control.

“Since 1988, OWC has been committed to delivering the highest quality products supported by award-winning customer service. We welcome the opportunity to extend this same commitment to a convenient drop off center where customers can bring in their Mac, PC, iPod, or iPhone for repairs, maintenance, and upgrades that will keep their technology investment running like new,” said Larry O’Connor, CEO, Other World Computing. “What’s most unique about this new center is that perhaps other than two Apple Stores, we’re not aware of any other iPod/iPhone service offered in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago.”
