Awhile back my daughter managed to do this to the iphone that she had just gotten for Christmas;
|My daughter's actual phone|
Shortly after dropping her off at a party i received a text message telling me that she had "totally smashed" her iphone - but not to worry - she had friends that could fix it for $80.00.
Said friends kept the phone for about 2 months while "waiting for parts" which really annoyed me. Eventually said friends said they had fixed the phone - the $80.00 was forked out and the phone returned.
One small problem.
It looked like new again but - it didn't work.
We gave phone back to friends who kept it, and the money for another month until i demanded the phone and the money be returned.
I took the phone to the young man who runs Irepairs in Sandringham Road. I was concerned that after everything this poor phone had been through it would be beyond repair. I advised the young man (i can't remember his name) that runs this business that it may be beyond repair and i would appreciate it if he could just let me know how much it will cost if he can fix it - before he does the work.
Within 5 minutes of leaving the phone with him he phoned me to let me know that not only was the screen busted but there were parts from the inside missing that would need replacing for it to work again. I was not surprised at this and had expected this to be the case. I assume those parts were lost when the friends were fiddling with it.
I gave him the go ahead.
Within 45 minutes the phone looked like this again;

I arrived home to my eagerly waiting daughter and she was delighted - until she found that the "home" button was not working.
I promptly phoned the young man at Irepairs and advised him that all was good except the home button did not appear to be working. I was a bit concerned that after the phone having been smashed to smithereens he would tell me there was nothing he could do about that.
Instead he told me to bring the phone back and he replaced the home button for free.
That was about 3 months ago and my daughter's phone has worked perfectly ever since. I am happy to report that she is more careful with it now.
If you ever manage to totally destroy your iphone and think it is beyond salvation - i can totally recommend Irepairs in Sandringham Road to bring it back to life.
Totally awesome service and a delightful young man to deal with.
