Iphone Repair Konstanz

I have a couple of Iphone4's which need new screens, is there anywhere in Konstanz where I can get them repaired. I guess the cost will be cheaper than repairing them in CH.

Re: Iphone Repair Konstanz

Yep, I've got an iPhone 5C and old iPad with cracked screens as well.
Does anyone know if Konstanz repair can be a 'do while you wait' or is it a leave and collect a few days later ??

Seems that there is a fixed price in CH to repair these bits of kit.

Re: Iphone Repair Konstanz

Does anyone have an actual price?

The repair is stupidly easy to do yourself, seems a bit wasteful to go all the way north when you can source the parts online yourself.

Replacing the front screen on an Iphone is a complete pain in the ass. i would not recommend it unless you are doing it for some sort of fun project.

Best case it takes probably an hour to disassemble the whole damn thing, removing maybe 30 tiny screws and connectors and bit and pieces.. Then if you are lucky, the new screen you bought for 20chf fits ok and you reverse the process..
However the last time I tried to fix the wife's phone, the screw holes on the new screen didn't all line up with the existing holes so it wouldn't fit. I scooped the whole lot up into the bin in disgust and went to the apple store next day and bought a new phone!

Sure, once you've done it 100 times it'll be easier, so if somebody is doing it for 50chf or something, I would pay them.

Then don't buy the cheapest knock-off on ebay that you can find.

Seriously though, it's more likely you bought the wrong model/they sent you the wrong one.

Compare the challenge of unscrewing the phone to say, the xperia Z series which is actually completely glued on for the waterproof seal. I've repaired dozens of my own and friend's phones over the years. The iPhone screen is not difficult compared to many other models.
