The founder of Staymobile first opened in Columbia, SC in 2009 using the brand SmartPhone Medic. Staymobile, the new brand which launched in October 2013, has been franchising the mobile lifestyle service concept since late 2012.
Staymobile franchises currently offer repair services on all makes and models of smartphones, game systems (Play Station, Xbox, Wii, Nintendo), digital cameras, laptops, GPS units, iPods, tablets and laptops.
Staymobile provides accessories for all devices as well as power accessories, sound equipment and refurbished devices for resale.
Although Staymobile does not sell new phone or active wireless contracts it does have a buy/sell/trade aspect to the business which provides consumers with an alternative to purchasing a new phone. Rather than repair a phone, some consumers will offer a damaged device for trade on a refurbished phone from the store’s inventory. That gives the franchisee the opportunity to either repair and resell the device or harvest the device for parts.

What Makes Staymobile Unique
Staymobile’s comprehensive “mobile device solutions” business model is unique because of the suite of services it provides. Numerous “cell phone repair” businesses focus singularly on the “break/fix” opportunities in the consumer market. Staymobile, on the other hand, provides services beyond repair and focuses on enhancing and sustaining the mobile lifestyle and operating environments of all users of mobile devices.
