Subject:Phone repairs?
Time:04:36 pm
Someone on freecycle has very kindly given me an iPhone 4S, in good working order except that the glass is badly cracked in the top RH corner. The actual LCD seems fine, everything works, etc., it's just the glass so far as I can tell. Having looked at the price of the kit (tiny) I was tempted to try DIY, but the web sites that show how to do it are scary - I've decided to chicken out and just pay for someone to repair it.

Can anyone point me at a phone repairer in central-ish London that can do this without messing it up and won't charge an arm and a leg?

No. But there's one at the end of the road here if you want to let Brian take it.

Any idea how much they might charge? I was quoted £25 in Shepherd's Bush today, but I suspect it would end up costing more.

That'd be great.

Sorry - just realised that if you do this and there's a problem it will take ages to resolve it, I think it's probably a better idea if I take it in myself, which means that somewhere local is probably best. Sorry for wasting your time.

I tried to replace a cracked screen on one of those. It took hours, and even though I was careful, I botched it.

Yes, it looked like it wasn't worth trying - you save a bit of money, but you risk destroying the phone.
