Recommended iPhone repair shop

Postby zzm9980 » Sat, 05 May 2012 4:00 pm

Anyone have a recommendation on a specific shop for iPhone repairs? Preferably something you or someone you know had a good experience with.

The shop I liked in Chinatown closed down :(

Not sure if it is too late. My colleague recently had his iPhone service at a shop in SLS 5th floor opposite a big accessories shop. Can't remember the name. It's near the escalator and the guys seems to be an honest guy.

Another colleague also went there to change battery thinking her battery is faulty and after replacing the battery, he realise the old battery is not faulty and put it back for her and ask her to monitor to see if it is a program that is causing the drain. He didn't charge her a dime.
Regards,
Kelvin

Not too late, I'll probably try it out. The wife's iPhone4 home button randomly stops working. Turning the phone upside down and knocking on the back temporarily solves it. I know this won't work forever though :)

There's a place in the bottom of Raffles City Mall, I've not used it,but, it looks quite well dressed up, they look much slicker than those guys that have the cardboard signs written on with marker pen.

It's down near where Esplanade Exchange meets the RCM. It's only been there a few months (next to Dunkin Donuts.)

Hmm, isn;t CityLink Mall that long hallway between them? I'll walk it and try to find it. Thanks!

This is a very common problem with the iPhone 4s which is why they built in a back up home button!

Hrmph wow, never knew that was in there. I usually turn on the LED for text messages though. Some of those accessibility options are nice.

Thanks Poodle, that's exactly the kind of endorsement I was looking for. Once my "work-around" stops working, I'll setup the software homebutton. If it annoys the wife badly, then we'll repair. Otherwise she can hopefully hold out 6 months and just take mine when I buy a 5 :cool:

I can recommend these guys. I've been there twice and sent a friend once and they've been good every time.
