Awesome place to get your phone repaired!!



So after the 12 millionth time of dropping my beloved iPhone (yes, I love it so STFU iPhone haters!!) ...I shattered the screen. I was distraught. Like, I thought I was going to die. True story.

ANNNNNYWAY, after calling up Rogers and realizing that they are all a bunch of useless f#$!s, I did some research and found out about this awesome place in Markham called "Toronto Repairs" located in the "Splendid China Tower" across from Pacific Mall.

The guy knew his stuff and for $65.00 cash fixed my screen in 25 mins... He also does repairs for pretty much every other type of phone, laptop and gaming console. They did and awesome job and I was uberhappy... So I just wanted to share.

Most places quote almost $100 if not more and Apple charges around $230 - good find!

65$ is a great deal. My best links on the screen itself are 49$ (ebay)

i just placed my nokia 6275i from a guy up that way. haha this one looks brand new and for 20 bucks not a complaint at all. my old one went 3 years. hot tub, swimming pool, shower , run over by s10 and a civic, dropped more times than a redneck baby and just plain beaten on. hopefully this takes the same abuse. ( i love this phone if you cant tell)
maybe the same guy, he mentioned doing repairs near pacific mall. if so consider this another good reccomendatoin

I dropped my i phone as well and the screen shattered
As you said rogers were completely useless and wanted something like 300 to repair it.
I ended up ordering a screen off ebay for $5. I watched a DIY video on you tube and about half hour later it was fixed. Trust me even $65 is a massive rip off if you saw what it involves and how cheap replacement parts are.

^^^ Oh I'm aware I just didn't want to wait a week or two to get the parts...
