Adam Arbogast is most known by his full time job as a 911 dispatch operator and a long time member of the Parsons Volunteer Fire Department. Although as of lately he has been bringing attention to himself in another form of emergency service, one that’s more along the lines of technology.
For the last six months Arbogast has been dabbling in a private business venture he appropriately named ‘Cell Phone Rescue.’ The main purpose of the business is to replace cracked screens on iPhone and Android devices, as well as the occasional Tablet.
This business was a brain child of Arbogast’s since last summer when his own phone screen had met its timely demise. After seeing the prices for this simple repair he decided to do his own research on the subject, coming up with three video results on the ever growing video site YouTube. After taking the time to study them Arbogast applied what he learned to his own phone, before he knew it he was doing the same for his family and friends. Eventually taking the step to branch out into ‘Cell Phone Rescue’ which allows patrons to buy the screen through suggested affordable links, such as Amazon Prime. Once the screen is received, in most cases he will be able to attach it for a low price of $30 compared to his competitors that charge up to $100 for the same service.
In the future, he hopes to expand “Cell Phone Rescue” by keeping a stock of popular screens as well as selling cell phone accessories such as otterbox’s or Bluetooth devices on a more mobile platform. Arbogast has viewed this experience of running his own repair business as not only a way to be generous and work with the community but “to provide the people of Tucker County with a service that would otherwise be unavailable or too expensive.” So, if you are ever in need of this service you can get in touch with “Cell Phone Rescue” at Celcpr@gmail.com or call 304-940-0059.
