Best Independent iPhone Repair, August 2010
A cracked screen. A waterlogged casing. An invisible demon that accidentally pocket-dials your ex. Apple can restore an iPhone to its fresh-out-of-the-box glory but then charge as much as it does for a brand-new one (the warranty doesn’t cover accidents). Local repair services have sprung up to deal with hardware traumas, for a reasonable fee. When My iPhone Savior was too swamped to accommodate us at its offices, the owners offered to come to us the following day for only $10 extra (the door-to-door service normally costs $20 to $60). Later they fixed the damaged back cover on our 3G in just two hours for $69; competitors charge far more or won’t do such complicated repairs.
