About Josh Hrinik

Josh has been in the the electronic and software industry for over 15 years. He started Oops Repair when he fixed his own personal iPod Touch in December 2012. The next week, he then had a few friends ask if he could fix their broken iPhone screens. With the help of his IT friend, Bennett, Josh launched an adventure to help people achieve value from their products while avoiding the high prices of buying brand new replacements. Today, a multitude of iPhones, iPads, iPods, MacBooks, Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets find their way to one of the many Oops Repair locations each week, from all over the country, to get a new facelift, get bent back into shape, seeking rehabilitation with new buttons, and/or resuscitated from drowning….all within an hour or two for each device.

How to make up to 800% ROI with your iPhone Repair to get the iPhone 8

The retail price for the newly released iPhone 8 and iPhone 8-Plus starts at $699 and climbs to $969.

After scouring for the best deals, we’ve spelled out the details of the major wireless carrier’s iPhone 8 deals below. But before we get to that, let’s show you how you can maximize your money by getting your current iPhone repaired at Oops Repair first. Here’s the bullet list:

  • ALL of the deals require a trade-in of an existing iPhone.
  • ALL carriers will give you ZERO, NADA, NOTHING for an iPhone with a cracked screen.
  • You can fix the front screen of your iPhone with Oops Repair, $69.95 – $149.95
  • You’ll get up to a $100 – $969 trade-in credit from the carriers
  • Return on Investment (ROI) is 66% to 800%+
  • All iPhone front screen repair takes less than 30 minutes to fix at Oops Repair.
  • Bottom Line: EVERY SINGLE iPhone repair will earn you more money for a trade-in

============

Now, let’s get to the wireless carrier deals:

Some pretty sweet deals include a FREE iPhone 8 with new promotions from Sprint and AT&T. It will require a bit of hoop jumping for other services they offer, but if you meet all the requirements you do get a free iPhone 8!

Verizon and T-Mobile also have iPhone 8 deals, including up to $300 in credit for eligible trade-ins.

HOWEVER, just remember the caveat is that the trade-ins have to be in good working condition (i.e. NO CRACKS).

 

Sprint

With Sprint’s new deal, customers can purchase an iPhone 8 64GB for $0 when trading in an eligible iPhone—specifically, the iPhone 7 or the iPhone 7 Plus—and signing up for an 18-month Sprint Flex lease and wireless plan.

If you don’t have one of the eligible phones mentioned above, you will still be able to get a deal on the iPhone 8 from Sprint. When you trade in fairly new smartphones such as the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, or the iPhone 6S Pus, the normal lease price for the iPhone 8 is now being cut in half by Sprint—so, $14.58 per month, rather than $29.17…a $350 savings.

Read the fine print and don’t cancel early!!

iPhone 6 Plus Touch Disease…what’s the deal? (aka the gray bar of death)

If you’re experiencing a sporadic loss of touch function on your iPhone 6 Plus you could have the all-too-well-known symptoms of Touch Disease.  Other indications include:

  • A gray bar that flickers at the top of your screen that may or may not move it’s way down to the half way point of your screen
  • When experiencing a lack of touch, gently twisting opposite corners (top left and bottom right) of your iPhone 6 Plus will allow you to use your screen again temporarily for a few minutes.

If you are seeing this problem, the cause is from a small resistor/diode on the motherboard of the iPhone 6 plus that has been damaged or dislodged.  It could have occurred during a drop or tumble, jarring the small component from the motherboard.

Don’t be duped into believing that there is an easy fix for this. The problem cannot be solved long term without repairing the necessary components on the motherboard.  And unless you have the micro-soldering skills and the $5,000+ of equipment to to the job, the ‘fix-it-yourself’ YouTube videos aren’t going to help you at all!

While Oops Repair cannot repair this problem here in house, we do work with a vendor who does do the required micro-soldering to repair the issue.  It’s a flat fee that includes the shipping, handling and comes with a guaranteed 1-year parts and labor warranty! The entire turn around time takes between 7-10 days.  And it is considerably less than the price Apple is charging to fix it for $150!

Can’t live without your phone for that long or don’t have a backup phone? No problem, we have iPhones we can rent you for $2 a day to help you out in the interim time.

Give us a call at 423-320-3402 and we can give you all the details for this repair!

The charge port is not working on my iPhone

At least once a day, we will have someone walk into our store and tell us that their iPhone won’t charge anymore.  We will take it from them, try one of our chargers, and discover that the cable won’t “click” in all the way, like it should.  The customer often explains that it has been more and more difficult getting the iPhone to accept the charge. They need to reposition the cable in a certain manner, stand it up on end, or continually finagle (love that word, fi-na-gle) the cable until the iPhone recognizes it. That continual frustration comes to a boiling point, thus the reason they are now in our store….sound familiar?

9 times out of 10, we look in the port and there is some pocket lint or gunk that is lodged in the port that just needs to be removed.  Our highly trained staff with their ninja expert skills will take their trusty, extra-fine needle point pliers and dig out that lint! After a bit of digging, a little lint comes out, then a big glob of fuzz compacted so hard that it makes a thud on the wood table when it falls out. After we get that all out, we cleanse the entire port with a firm bristle tooth brush and some denatured alcohol.  We test the cable again and voila! The firm click we’ve all been longing for! The charge port works yet again!

VICTORY!

We hand back the iPhone to our customer who sheepishly wishes that they would have thought of that 3 weeks ago.  So, If you’re not sure if this is the problem with your iPhone, bring it in, have a cup of coffee while you wait, and we can check it out.  If it is, we will fix it for FREE.  Yep, it’s a FREE fix at Oops Repair, no charge for that mad-skill knowledge and 2-minutes of hard labor.

However, if there is damage to your charge port, and it isn’t because of pocket lint…we can fix that too.  Charging port parts are in stock for all iPhone models from the iPhone 4 to the iPhone 7-plus.  Pricing is clearly posted on our website.

Repair vs Replace: What to do?

You broke your iPhone screen….now what? With so many options out there these days, let us lay out the truth and help explain the cost effectiveness of a repair versus just getting a “new” phone.

As a fair baseline, we went to the “fountains of truth” for our pricing comparisons….Apple, eBay and Craigslist.  On the Apple website, we looked at the price for a new phone (without a contract) and an ‘exchanged’ iPhone price at any Apple Store. For eBay we took an average price of the first ten items that matched our criteria…for both new and used.  For Craigslist we assumed all items were used and we took the average price of 20 phones for each iPhone (5 listings from 4 U.S. cities) Check out the chart below:

As you can see, choosing to repair your iPhone with Oops Repair is a great financial option. In addition to the savings:

Storage Scarcity – How Much Space Do You REALLY Have Left?

Ugh….is this message a familiar and regular face on your iPhone?

iPhone users who are gluttons with their data have again faced that familiar problem of an iOS update requiring more storage space. More storage space?! “I’m filled to the brim as it is!”  You don’t want to end up deleting something you’ll regret just to get the latest updates on your phone.

As smartphones continue to rise in eminence and become part of our daily lives, there is an increasing need to be informed about the storage space you have available. That space dictates all of the things you can hold on your phone, after all – everything from apps to movies. It’s easy not to think about the space, but we’ve all had a moment of, “I thought I had more space than this.” Why is that?

Unless you’re one of the few who sprung for the 128GB iPhone 6 or purchased a likewise massive SD card for your Android phone, this situation is probably familiar to you. It is no secret in the tech world that the listed space of a product is approximate; in other words, that your 16GB phone assuredly doesn’t have 16 gigs of available space on it. In fact, depending on the model of your phone and the amount of pre-installed apps, your 16GB phone might have as little as 8GB to work with! We’ll tell you a few ways to skirt this annoying issue, whether or not you prefer the iOS or Android ecosystem.

1. BE CONSCIOUS OF FILE SIZE

Strange though it might seem to say, files of the same type can vary greatly in size. The more file-savvy among you might already know what it’s like: you have an album that takes up 50MB, and right next to it, you’ve got another album that’s taking up 150MB. They have a similar amount of tracks with similar lengths, so why is one so much bigger? To spare a lot of technical talk about loss-less compression, the simple explanation is “sometimes they’re just bigger for arbitrary reasons.” This applies to movies, audiobooks, and images as well; always double-check the sizes of your files if you’re looking to make space.

2. BACKUP YOUR STORAGE

Backing up your storage is but one tech-related activity we all know we should be doing but rarely do. Much like defragging was to computing in the 90s, the 21st century is all about retaining your data. Since our phones are a mainstay in our daily lives, we end up collecting a lot of stuff on them. 30 pictures from a day at the park? 12 different takes of trying to record a cover of “Blank Space?” It’s easy for things like this to go unnoticed at the time, but it’ll eat up your storage space in a hurry. Make sure to periodically come back through and delete/backup these unruly files if it’s not necessary to keep them on the device itself.

If you have a consistent Wi-Fi or data connection, utilizing streaming or syncing services can clear up loads of space. Apple Radio, Spotify, Netflix, and Audible can cover most of your media needs via data or Wi-Fi connections, freeing much needed space on your device for things like apps. Dropbox, Google Docs, and iCloud are all great cloud-based option for storage of a variety of file-types.

The iPhone 6 in particular has taken huge strides in the realm of syncing and cloud storage, eliminating lots of problems with storage from older models, although even the Huffington Post is publishing content on ways to mitigate remaining storage problems that confound the iPhone. While the iPhone does not allow for external physical storage, other smartphones do offer replacement internal and external memory augmentation and addition.

3. MIND THE CACHE

While this does apply to iPhone users, for Android users on the other hand, it is very much the crux of the matter. You may have encountered the infamous “insufficient storage space available” error, seemingly in spite of however much space you feel you should have available. There’s a reason for this, and it’s relevant to things behind the scenes.

Simply put, caching is the indexing of information for later use. It’s a vital function for lots of technical things, and it helps you as a user, as well (notice how your YouTube app remembers your previous searches?). The issue comes in with the long-term storage of cached information. Imagine you’ve made thousands of searches on your YouTube app and your browser. Well, the phone kept all that information around, and it might be consuming huge amounts of storage, up to the hundreds of megabytes.

What to do? If your phone doesn’t provide a simple option for clearing the cache, there’s almost certainly an app for that. Keeping a cleaner app for your android is an advisable, well-reviewed option for the less diligent data-consuming user.

4. DON’T DOWNLOAD EVERYTHING; EMBRACE THE CLOUD

iTunes music cloud-based options and new Apple Music features encouraging you to offload your storage into the cloud seems an almost fair compromise in exchange for their severely gimping the storage of the cheapest model of the newer iPhones. From Microsoft Drive to the constant updates of Google Drive, this seems to be the trend of every high-end smartphone manufacturer—to provide at least the option of cloud storage.

Both local and remote storage have their benefits, so to have the best smartphone experience, ask yourself when you would be most likely to need to have access to certain types of data and also be without an Internet connection.

Questions? Comments? We’d love to hear from you.

Kids and iPads

When it comes to technology and kids, there are positives and negatives. After many years and millions of dollars spent, it has been found that with the proper guidance, education, and rules, technology is absolutely a benefit for children. If you have been deciding if you should buy your kid an iPad or not, then read on to find out why the iPad is a great investment in the growth and development of your child.

Benefits of iPads to Kids

Girl-iPadKids of this generation are already hooked on the television. Would you rather have your kid learning on an iPad or learning from a TV? By getting an iPad for your kids thus replacing their TV hours as a parent you can dramatically improve upon what they are learning and who they’re learning it from.

Inappropriate Channels/TV Shows

From the perspective of a parent, TV has many ads that are considered inappropriate, yet the iPad has parental restrictions that can be set most times to not have any ads. That’s right, the iPad can be set for your kids to run commercial free.

Interactive Screen Time

The television is a passive device, if you are looking for something more interactive for your kids, get them the iPad. Now, instead of your kids sitting motionless on the couch in front of the television all evening, your kids can be playing games, drawing, solving puzzles, typing, and watching educational videos. The Apple iTunes Store has a ginormous selection of educational books, games, apps, and videos for your children. iPad content can be controlled by parents. As long as the password is controlled only by the parents and unknown to the kids, parents maintain complete control over the content reviewed and played on the iPad.

Easier Customization

When you purchase an iPad, you can customize it for the age of the child that is going to be using it. Let’s be honest…do you really know what kids are watching on the television in their bedrooms at night? It is all too common for kids to be watching programming that is not age appropriate.

Portability

In addition,  the iPad has one very distinct feature the TV does not have: portability.  Your kids can go outside and sit under a tree. They can leave the house and read a book with a friend on their iPad.  And they can take it in the car with them on those long trips.

Keeping It Functional for Longer

There is a proactive approach to this problem by ensuring you buy an iPad protector to keep it safe in the little one’s hands. If the screen is broken or cracked,  Oops Repair can have your screen replaced and back in your kid’s hands in no time at all…typically less than 2 hours.

Take control of your kid’s downtime by getting them an iPad. If anything ever happens to it, know that we are here to take care of any problems that may happen to it.

 

Oops of the Week: July 4, 2015

After a thorough investigation for this week’s ‘Oops-of-the-Week’, we discovered how to tap into the iPhone’s internal history log of events…here’s what we discovered:

Date: Thursday, July 2, 2015

6:55am – Alarm. Slapped frantically by human operator’s hand repeatedly until alarm was cancelled.

7:00 am – Text messaging, email, Facebook, Snapchat, weather app, traffic app engaged.

7:08 am – Sensors indicate steam from the shower is making our circuits damp but nothing we can’t handle.

7:30 am – Dropped. Hit bed frame and came to rest under edge of bed, stepped on during search, retrieved. Systems shaken but all still functioning properly.

7:45 am – Stuffed into pocket, impact with door on the way out, sat on in the vehicle and finally retrieved only to be dropped into a cup holder. Sensors indicate a possibly harmful moisture level but so far the water level has not breached the back case seam. With all the movement from this vehicle, the situation could become critical any moment. System on high alert.

7:58am – Selfie taken and shared before leaving vehicle. Stuffed into pocket again.

8:02am – Landed on desk unit. Downgraded to normal alert levels. Text messaging, email, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram engaged. Twelve more selfies taken, one shared.

11:15am – Forced again into pocket, moved with human operator to another location. Sensors indicate increased noise level and multiple humans in close proximity. Return to high alert.

11:21am – Impact with table top. Sensors indicate multiple humans near our operator and innumerable potential hazards: moisture, heated sticky substances, instability of table. We have already experienced multiple bumps and one incident of a fall that was too close for comfort. Our sensors tell us we are too near the edge. All indicators point to a solid, firm ground surface. All circuits stay alert! What is our operator thinking?

11:22am – Red alert! Red alert! All circuits and systems – brace for impact!

11:23 am – Came to rest on ground and metal leg. Possibly support for table from which we fell. All systems report no damage. That was a close call – too close. Awaiting retrieval from our operator.

11:28am –  Sensors indicate operator is completely unaware of our demise. Systems remain on high alert.

11:31am – Operator begins frantic movement of all extremities. Brace for possible impact or force!

11:32am – Operator’s foot presses down, effectively bending unit. Systems indicate frame is bent, screen is cracked. Operator finally retrieves unit and returns to office. Operator repeatedly picks up unit and  returns to desk, almost as if human has forgotten damage to unit and has some level of dependency. Sensors indicate operator is becoming more agitated. All systems still on high alert.

2:35pm – Operator engages Siri. “Call Oops Repair.” Duration of call: 1minute, 47 seconds. Operator slides unit gently into pocket and is promptly on the move.

2:51pm – Sensors indicate we have arrived at Oops Repair’s address. Operator has turned unit over to another human. Unit powered down.

3:11pm – Unit powered on. Sensors indicate a repositioned frame and a new front screen have been installed. Even minor harm done from previous impacts seems to be eradicated. Unit returned to operator.

3:12pm – Apple pay engaged. Payment processed.

3:13pm – Human operator has returned to car. Protective barrier has been placed around unit. All systems have returned to normal alert levels.

Are You a Battery Murderer?

frustrated-woman-1

 

“I just got this phone 6 months ago, and my battery won’t even last all day!  It goes from 90% to 10% in less than an hour! What’s the deal?”

Ignorance.

“Hey, I resemble that comment!”

No, really….it truly is.  People just don’t know that their bad habits kill their phone batteries. Don’t be a killer, your battery wants to keep you connected…it really does!

In the month of June, Oops Repair has replaced:

iPhone 6 Dead Battery

 

  • 8 iPhone 6 Plus Batteries
  • 20 iPhone 6 Batteries
  • 27 iPhone 5S Batteries
  • 21 iPhone 5C Batteries
  • 13 iPhone 5 Batteries
  • 7 iPhone 4S Batteries
  • 5 iPhone 4 Batteries
  • 3 Galaxy S5 Batteries
  • 7 Samsung Galaxy S4 Batteries
  • Various others as well

 

That is a fair amount of batteries…but if you notice the ones at the top of the list, it seems that the newer phones should have a longer battery life, right?

Lots of factors can play into the precious battery life of your phone.  Here is a list the top 3 common culprits.  They can be seen in everyday life, killing their phone battery softly and slowly. (Queue up “Killing Me Softly” by the Fugees)

The-Over-Charger: This not-so-rare phone user species leaves their phone plugged in ALL the time. They love to see 100% battery and panic whenever they see it drop below 90%.  They plug their phone in at any opportunity.  If it’s not in use, it’s plugged in.  Even if it is in use, it’s plugged in. The battery, over time, will “learn” that most of the battery cells are not to be used.   And without it using all the battery cells, it can’t hold a charge.  Eventually the battery will only hold a charge for a very short time.

The-Wait-Until-The-Very-Last-Second-Plugger-Inner: Typically found in the younger generation, this problematic habit forms from allowing their battery to get to 1% before plugging them in for 10-15 minute bursts, allowing the battery to only charge to 15% and rush off to their life of texting once again, only to plug it back in 20 minutes later at 1% yet again. Thus the cycle repeats.  The battery once again “learns” to never operate on a full charge and will not fully charge properly over time.

The-Chronic-Leaver-Of-All-Apps-Open-At-All-Times: We see this specimen constantly at Oops Repair.  They have a bazillion apps open and NEVER close them….like ever.  When you double tap that home button on their iPhone and you’ll spend the next half hour swiping up to close all the games, GPS, Maps, and the 217 Social Media apps they are addicted to. They smile wryly and ask “Does that really matter?” Um….in a word, YES! The background refresh on all those apps is killing your battery!  Stop it! If you have more than 15 apps running in the background at any given time, you’re this person.  Oops Repair sponsors O.A.A. (Open App Anonymous) meetings once a week to help overcome this addiction.  “My name is Josh, and I’m a chronic Open App user.”

Let me teach you now, Grasshopper, how to do it right!

BusinessMan

 

The “Model” Battery User: The ones that get 2-3 years of battery life are among the elite in this life.  They know the game, and play it right.  Bad habits….yeah, as if…What are those? The guidelines below will help you to be pro-life for your battery:

 

  • Wait until your battery gets BELOW 20% before charging it.  The lower you let it drain, the more life you’ll get out of it.  Even if you’re going to bed and it’s at 35-40%, let it go, charge it at work instead.
  • Allow it to FULLY charge before unplugging it. If you can allow it to charge to 100%, let it.
  • Don’t leave it plugged in longer than a few hours if it’s at 100%. Overnight charging is about the longest you want to leave it plugged in.
  • Close your unused apps throughout the day.  It’s a lot easier to close 15 apps than 200.

Bottom line: Plan your entire day around your phone.  It’s your life.  We know it is.  Just kidding.

Hope it helps! Let us know if you have any comments!

 

 

The Real Deal: OEM vs. Third Party Parts

One of the biggest strengths of Oops Repair is that we use OEM parts in our repairs.

To an everyday Joe, that may not mean all that much.  It’s even been reported that “some” people are willing to sacrifice quality for a part that is $15-30 cheaper.  We don’t get it.  You have a $600…$800…$1000 smartphone, and you’re going to buy a $50 part on eBay and have it installed by a dude that works out of his basement? Really??

Ok, I’ll leave the spirit of sarcasm out of this (which always has a bit of truth in it) and let’s dive into the facts about this topic.

First, I need to start on a reputable platform.  I’m a guy that has had over 3 years experience in buying parts for iPhones, iPads, iPods and Samsung Galaxy phones from just about everyone.  I didn’t know where to start either.  It’s ok. That’s why I’m writing this…to tell you the TRUTH and help you skip over all the hassle of poor quality parts and repairs.

Off we go…The advantages and benefits of buying OEM parts and having Oops Repair install them for you too.

This blog will be speaking specifically on iPhone parts.

Front Screen for iPhones: Let’s be completely transparent…yes, you can buy a new front screen for your iPhone 6 from someone on eBay for $40…I just looked.  But what is it you’re really getting? A $40 part…that’s most definitely a third-party part.  What does that mean? It means that they are made by other manufacturers. Third party parts are not the same as original parts. They do not have the same standards or quality.

But wait! I see the $60 OEM part on eBay too…from a reputable seller.  Not so fast tough guy! OEM is just a nice “buzzword” that good sellers use to draw people into buying their parts. Anyone that is making a part can technically be an OEM supplier…especially in China 🙂 So don’t let that be your deciding factor either.

I also see the $95 OEM iPhone 6 part on eBay.  And you know what? That’s probably the legitimate part.  That is very close to the price we pay for our parts.  Real OEM parts!

Let’s take the time to dissect an iPhone front screen assembly (This is true for all iPhones):

  • LCD – The LCD on a Third Party iPhone Front (on right in picture below) assembly will be discolored and have a purplish hue to it.  They will glow funny and you will not have the ability to see true colors.  They also are susceptible to dead/burnt out pixels after being on for only a few hours. OEM LCD’s (On left) have sharp distinct colors with the ability have true black and white in an image without distortion. They are much higher quality and have better heat dissipation across the entire LCD to avoid dead pixels.
    iPhone Purple Hue
  • Glass – Third party & low-quality glass is not tempered or regulated to the same standards. It is more prone to cracking, and will shatter much easier than the OEM glass. And when it does crack or shatter, it will fall out, much like if you broke a window in your house.  It doesn’t spiderweb and stay intact (like your original iPhone did)…it will be much easier to cut yourself.  Third party glass is also not designed to work in conjunction with the digitizer (touch function) thus making the touch function more problematic, less sensitive, and down-right annoying! OEM glass is tempered, won’t shatter and fall out in big chunks.  It is MADE to work with the digitizer and your touch is as smooth & responsive as it should be. (OEM on Left; Third Party on Right)
    IMG_1737
  • Earpiece Dust Shield – Third Party is non-existent.  OEM Parts include the earpiece dust shield.
    iPhone 6 Profile 5

Other Parts for iPhones: Same is true for other iPhone parts, you can buy third party…be it the buttons, speakers, rear glass assembly, and all the internal ribbon cables.  They aren’t the right color, they don’t fit right, don’t function or actuate as smooth, don’t sound as crisp, don’t include the needed adhesive, etc. Bottom line…They just don’t live up to the originals!

Installation by Oops Repair:  So now that you see the value in buying the right part, let me tout the the value in having your part installed by us.

  • We actually use the same new OEM parts we just mentioned above…made by the SAME manufacturers used in iPhones, iPads, iPods and Samsung Galaxy.
  • We have fixed THOUSANDS of iPhones.  We are pros and know what we are doing.
  • We Save You Time – We GUARANTEE all iPhone broken screens are repaired in 60 minutes…and most are actually done in less than 30 minutes.  Most people who try repairing their phone themselves can easily spend 2 – 3 hours.  Go grab lunch and come back to a shiny new, working iPhone.
  • We have the part in stock. No need to wait for the part you want to be shipped to you.
  • We Help Avoid Stress – Most people get stressed, frustrated and start yelling at their significant other/kids/friends/pets when they start to repair an iPhone on their own.  They lose screws, accidentally clips cables, or make things worse than when they started…and it doesn’t quite look right or work right when they are done.  Let us handle it…and you go be stress free because we make sure that:
    1) All is accounted for – At Oops Repair, we will install every screw back (in the right spot) that we take out! (For an iPhone 6 Front Screen Repair that is over 30 teeny-tiny screws!). We get iPhones in where people tried themselves, or had it done somewhere else, and half the screws are missing!  Each screw is important…otherwise they wouldn’t be there!
    2) You have full functionality – Accidents happen, and internal cables get cut, clipped or torn. (Trust me I know this all to well) We promise that your iPhone will walk out working the same, or better, than when it came in.  We will repair any mistakes, that we may make, free of charge, and be upfront and honest about it when you pick it up.  If we break something, and we can’t fix it, we will replace it for you with a device of equal value.
  • Price – We have the best price in town, and we openly post it on our website.  We will meet any competitor price…that has the same claims we do.
  • Warranty – 6 months, FULL PARTS AND LABOR, on all our repairs.
  • We are honest – No games, no hype, just truth. We will let you know if we can fix your iPhone or not.
  • You have a comfortable place to sit and wait with FREE Soda/Water, FREE Coffee, FREE Candy, FREE Wifi, Magazines, TV and friendly staff.
  • Our customers love us and you will too – Check out our Customer Testimonials on Facebook.

Most of what was said above also goes for iPads, iPods and Samsung Galaxy parts.

If this was helpful at all, please comment below.  I’d love to hear your feedback.
