Exchange welcomes mobile phone repair service

Army & Air Force Exchange Service

Airmen and families can have their smartphones repaired anywhere on or near the installation with the launch of mobile repair vehicles at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

The service, provided by Asurion Tech Repair & Solutions, allows any member of the Wright-Patterson community who is authorized to shop with the Army & Air Force Exchange Service to book an appointment for repair. An expert will meet them at any location convenient to them to fix their phone – often as soon as the same day.

Eligible mobile repair services include screen repairs and battery replacements for most smartphone models.

“The Exchange is committed to making life more convenient for Airmen and families at Wright-Patterson,” said Wright-Patterson Services Business Manager Sara Bateman. “Bringing mobile smartphone repairs to the installation strengthens the quality-of-life for members of the Wright-Patterson community.”

Wright-Patterson is one of 30 Army and Air Force installations in the continental United States to receive Asurion Tech Repair & Solutions mobile repair service through an agreement with the Army & Air Force Exchange Service. For more information and to book an appointment, visit
