As a fellow Samsung user I HIGHLY recommend Mobile Repair Central near Big W at Woden.

I smashed my screen and got a worse than rubbish $350 replacement from Universal Phone Services in Canberra Centre. When I told them the repair hadn’t worked properly and the screen now had ‘dead zones’ they told me it would cost another $200 to fix :/ I decided to try Mobile Repair Central and
go with a ‘refurbished’ screen as it was much cheaper, but when I wasn’t happy with how that turned out, gave me a great price on a new one and did labour for free. I had some problems with it over a year later and they then fixed it for free. Great service and really helpful.

I reckon the old bugger is starting to feel his age.

Maybe you could get a bigger screen and stronger glasses, BenD ?

Dear Hon Mr Dover Esq, what happened to the feedback on HappyTel? Did it have a happy ending?

Be selective not just price wise, but also think of WHO owns the business before you support it.

WTF?

Do not even think of Universal in Woden.. Phone screen damaged and replaced however furthe problems arose. Upon taking the phone to the phone place outside Big W Woden, they revealed to me that the battery and other internals has been salvaged and replaced with cheap aftermarket parts.

The repairer in Gungahlin Woolworths building..the kiosk is also dodgy. Screen also replaced there by a crap screen that slides off. The touch sensor was also out of sync for a while.

Cash only and no receipt.

Are the genuine parts being stripped and sent to Israel?

I know im late to the party but philip station in woden across the burger joint and nandos n what not are GREAT! Friendly service, looks after u, warranty provided, very fast service. My samsung s3 screen was heavily damange and he replaced it at a decent price (the lcd’s are crazily over priced for sammies) in less than 20 minutes. Gave me a discount and screen protector. I am a very happy customer!

One dark day my darling youngest son dropped my ipad and the screen shattered. Angelo at GeekLABS did a great job replacing the screen. It was ready the next day I think, and the cost was reasonable too. I’m sure they replace screens for phones and would probably do Samsungs. They do all sorts of computer repair work, and I had a laptop repaired by them about a month ago. They are in Fyshwick now, if that is not too far for you to go?

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

JackW01 12:14 pm 17 Sep 13

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.

Ben_Dover 11:29 am 17 Sep 13

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