Re: iPhone Screen cracked - where can i get it repaired

I just had my screen replaced at PC Innovation at Berninaplatz. I have an iPhone 3GS, and the charge was 150CHF. It was ready in about 4 hours. Can't beat that!

Re: iPhone Screen cracked - where can i get it repaired

Was the phone still under guarantee? Have you supplied an AppleCare contract while buying the phone or after you bought it? Have a look on this link as it can give you more informations on the AppleCare issue and its coverage: http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/...for_iPhone.pdf

Slightly off-topic because it's not about an iphone, but I cracked the screen of my SE Xperia X10 and can't afford to replace the whole phone. I've ordered a replacement screen over the internet and found a guide on how to take the phone apart, but now I'm wondering if I'm crazy to try. Has anyone here done it?

The Apple store in ZH quoted me 300. I bought a screen and tools for about 90. I'll post the link to the store when I'm home tomorrow but I've been living with a cracked screen now for 6 weeks cos the instructions look too scary!
I bought my iphone screen off ebay, from a seller in China for about 20chf including postage and tools. Touch screen membrane included. Instructions are on youtube. Have a look before ordering. Screen been fine for months now.

Re: iPhone Screen cracked - where can i get it repaired

There is a shop in the Uetlibergstrasse in Zurich that does nothing else.
It takes about 15 minutes and costs around 250 CHF (depending on your model).
I had my phone repaired over there. Works fine.

Re: iPhone Screen cracked - where can i get it repaired

Seriously smashed my iPhone 4's screen (dropped it on the road). Made an appointment to see an "iPhone specialist" at the Apple store in Bahnhofstrasse (Zurich)today. CHF 260 to get a refurbished one. Done and dusted. Just a bit cheesed at the price but hey, I'm an Apple fangrrrl so I won't complain top much

Did mine about two weeks agO - got too drunk and threw it a couple meters. Walked into Apple a few days later, came out with a "new" iPhone free of charge.

Quick tip for you all

I just bought a replacment screen for a nintendo DS, supposed to be a direct swap, so I took it all apart, swapped it and for about 2 seconds it worked, unfortunalty this direct swap screen had no insulation on the back of it, just a metal plate, and it shorted against the motherboard and blew the micro fuse, which proved impossible to bypass. So beware if your swapping out screens yourself, check the back has some insulation, and compare it against the one you remove!!

Now does anyone need any DS spares?
i love the DIY approach

I also used the iphonedoktor.ch once for a 3GS, went to see him in person; Very quick did in 10 to 15 minutes. Much better price than the Apple store.

Re: iPhone Screen cracked - where can i get it repaired

Has anyone tried to replace the screen on an iphone4.

I got one for my birthday (not sure why as I'm a complete Techie dinosaur but it's certainly an improvement on a deep fat fryer) but my darling son dropped it on the first day and the screen is badly cracked.

I would like to get it repaired before my OH sees it and said son becomes the late Belgianboy but it seems really expensive, I can't find anyone in Neuchatel on google and having looked at the videos thought maybe I could do it myself.

Do you think I'm being completely insane to contemplate the idea? It is still useable but I did get a splinter of glass in my finger when sliding it on the screen yesterday.

There is a new place opened on Rue De Seyon in Neuchatel. It's at the top end near Ecluse. They have a poster saying they will do it for 29CHF. Not sure what they will actually charge but they look good!

Let me know if you need more directions. But if you park at the Seyon parking then that's the right side.
