Why you shouldn't fix your own phone
It is becoming more and more popular for people to try and fix their own phones in an effort to save money. It may be a biased opinion, but this is a bad idea.
There are many bad outcomes where you can damage your phone beyond repair.
Here is the process for fixing your phone and why it isn’t the way it seems:
1. Watch a YouTube video on how to fix your phone
2. Order the part to your phone on eBay which likely comes with tools
-The part likely comes with no warranty.
3. Watch the video again while trying to fix it
When someone tries to fix their own phone, they often end up bringing it to us in a zip lock bag….missing parts. Once you calculate the costs of the parts that you buy, the time you devote to the repair (likely over 1-2 hours), the risk of breaking something and the fact that you won’t get a warranty, you are better off just coming in to us to have us repair it. It will take less time and you get a warranty on the parts and the work.
We had a customer recently try - what might have cost them only £40 for a screen they bought on ebay cost them £130 including board lever repairs after shorting the motherboard using metal tools and causing a poweline failure. Also the screen they had bought was either faulty or they'd damaged fitting. We gave them it back to return to the ebay seller hoping they'd get their money back.
Don’t risk paying for it twice (once when you try to fix it and can’t, once when you bring it to us) and just come in to us in the first place and we will fix it for you.
