By Ben_Dover - 17 September 2013 28

My daughter just cracked the screen on her new Samsung Galaxy s4, does anyone know of reliable repairer here in Canberra please?

Fortunately the phone is still working, but I’d prefer to get it repaired if at all poss.

What’s Your opinion?

Ben_Dover, Universal is owned by Israelis, if I were you I’d go with other suggestions.
Be selective not just price wise, but also think of WHO owns the business before you support it.

I have used these guys many times and recommended their services to others who have been extremely happy with price and service. They are professional and offer you advise and honest opinions.
So, please Ben_Dover, enlighten us all as to why their nationality makes a difference in whether they are proficient in their business and service.

Hmm, well I’ve found the complete opposite with Universal Phone Services. First time the phone was bought in, whatever they claimed to have done didn’t fix the issue, and then after taking it back they somehow managed to “misplace” said phone. Days later get the phone back and the issue still not fixed, took the phone straight upstairs to Happytel and the issue was resolved in minutes and have no further issues since.

If u do decide to get any phone repaired just remember if it is not repaired by an authorized repairer you will automatically void your warrenty. The choice is yours though I would suggest taking it back to your phone dealer. You may have to send it away to get repaired but at least you are garunteed legit repairs and still have warrenty … Choice is yours

I agree what does nationality have to do with anything?

There’s a phone repair kiosk at Gungahlin town centre near Woolies. I’ve never used them so can’t comment on the quality of service.

Happytel seems to have the edge at the moment, any other thoughts folks?

Do not under any circumstances take it to Universal Phone Services in the Canberra Centre. I can, however recommend Happytel upstairs in the Canberra Centre

Try universal phone repair in the city, they are relatively cheap and pretty quick..

What do they say? Cheap, quick, good … pick two.

Having said that, isn’t screen replacement the bread and butter of those phone repair kiosks in every mall in this town?

I recently got my S4 fixed in tuggeranong, ‘my happy tel’ I think is the name. The S4s are pretty pricey it cost me $290 which was cheaper than the city or belco who quoted me $300 or more.

Probably not what you want to hear – but I’ve done several repairs on my Galaxy S2 myself. My phone took a swim in the bath with the kids. Was quoted something like $300 for a new battery and new USB connector. Got the battery on ebay for $20 on ebay – and the USB connector for $6. Was a simple job and it’s like new.

Screen replacement is a trickier job – but youtube has 100s of tutorial videos.
