Many people who attend Restart Parties tell us that they needed urgent and immediate help with their failed gadget. Some admit they had to buy a new smartphone, laptop or domestic gadget because they could not live without the uncertainty and without their device until a Restart Party. Understandable!
From now, we’d like to offer more immediate support, especially to people who have simple problems that seem fatal.
If you use Twitter and Facebook, you can get our instant support by using the hashtag #SOSRestart.
We are not a repair business, nor will we ever be. We have no vested interest except helping people learn and saving waste. Where possible, our volunteers will troubleshoot and explain to tech owners what costs might be involved in both commercial repair and self-repair. We hope well-meaning members of the general public and our online friends all of the world will pitch in, all they have to do is scan the hashtag and roll up their sleeves.
So next time you are desperate, about to give up, help is just a tweet or a Facebook post away!
Here’s how we advise you to phrase your call for help. Tell us about your sad gadget:
- what make and model
- what is malfunctioning – show us (photo if possible)
- how/when it started
Over and out!
