iPhone repairers in Canberra

By Genie 5 July 2010 44

Ok guys so I’ve done what most people with an iPhone have done.

I dropped it and smashed the screen.

My insurance wont cover it and I can send it away for about $500 and it will take 6-8 weeks to get fixed (NO THANKS). My other option is to send it up to Sydney at a much better cost of up to $150 and a 3 business day turnaround.

Stupidly I’m lazy and CBF posting it up to Sydney, its been busted for a good 2-3 months now. (well not that lazy I just keep remembering late in the week to post it where the turnaround has to included the weekend… yeah yeah still less than a week but if your going to have a go at me about that your clearly not an iPhone owner)

I’ve been told there is now some places in Canberra where I can take it and have the glass replaced in a matter of an hour or 2 for cheap. I was just wondering what anyone has heard or if anyone has used anyone here in Canberra???

Thanks

What’s Your opinion?

What I’ll never understand is why anyone would buy a phone with notoriously restricted functionality then void their warranty by “jailbreaking” it so that it’ll do some of the things that other phones do better out of the box.

So, what phone would you recommend?

ANything not made by Apple. Its funny how thier fans still claim that Microsoft is the big bad monster, however Apple are the ones who are making things exclusive and trying to control things like some digital overlord.

I bailed on My iPhone when I got tired of it being slow and getting worse with every update. Got a Samsung Galay S and know I have modified the cyanogen ROM to suit myself and have a one of a kind phone thaty suits me perfectly. Still does everything an iphone does and more, even has a cracked and ported version of Siri.

I still have nokia N8 (which is fine piece too, use it along with HTC. I was a bit cautious of getting HTC Incr S, but, my fears were gone within a week.
Ovi store is good (free Angry Birds and all), but Android market is better.
Try it, it may be your next phone.

I had iphones, my choice now is HTC Incredible S- Android. It is far better than Iphones.:)
And I am not limited to having to bloated software like Itunes.I like the simplicity of simple usb connections to transfer files or sync it with my machines.

That sounds very fine.

Mine’s a Nokia N900. It’s a brilliant phone – it’s fully legally rootable, it multitasks, isn’t network-locked, tethers out of the box with no restrictions, and has the best damn I’ve seen on a mobile – I love it, though it’s a bit long in the tooth now. You can still pick them up new for a few hundred dollars. There’s a significant body of opinion that it’s still the best phone made to date. I haven’t used enough to comment on that, but I haven’t seen anything that makes me want to change. And best, – I decide what I’m going to run on it and how I’m going to use it. No walled garden.
