    So I have a broken glass on my iphone and ran across this place. $79.99 to put a new glass on my phone. I can get the parts and do it myself for about $60.00, but for another 20 bucks I think I would let someone else fix it. They have 100% positive feedback on ebay and seem to be a good company, just wanted to see if anyone has used them.

    I've never heard of it. I I were you I would use a well reputable site like iresq. I don't have any personal experience with them, but I have heard good results.

    Hey, this may be a little late, but I used their mail in service and it was great! They had my phone back to me within 2 days! Also, I had some marks on my phone that I wanted to go away so I went to the apple store and made up an excuse, to see if they would swap it out under warranty and THEY DID!!!! The Apple Reps couldn't even tell it had been repaired!!! I would definitely recommend their service if its not to late. Did you end up getting your phone fixed yet?

    I told the apple rep my phone was often freezing and even after multiple restore attempts the issue was still there. I called in to apple support a few times to log my complaints before going into the store and it worked like a charm

    They (ubreakifix.com) fixed my messed up phone at a reasonable price after it fell out of my shirt pocket while I was running which resulted in my screen cracking and scratches and cracks on the case after stepping on it when it hit the ground. They repaired my phone to like new condition and returned it back to me after three days. The guys at the store (of which they have 5 local locations & internet ebay) were very friendly and helpful and I will use them again if needed.

    They are local here in Orlando. I took my wife's phone to them to replace the sim reader. She tried to he-man the sim card out and broke one of the pins inside. I know that is what happened because I took the phone apart to see why it wouldn't read the sim card. After taking it apart, putting it back together, and testing to make sure it still worked, I drove to their office. They said that it would take an hour, so I left to get some lunch. They called after about 45 minutes to say that they replaced the sim reader but the phone wouldn't restore. They claimed that it was water damaged (it did get wet months prior) and wanted to keep it over the weekend to run it through their water damage process. They called Monday and said that they were not able to repair it and didn't charge me anything. Now I don't know if they accidentally broke it and claimed water damage to cover themselves, or that the water was indeed the problem.

    After this, I took it to apple and paid the $200 for a replacement phone.

    I'm not saying that you shouldn't go with them. I'm not an expert on electrical components, but I do have the feeling they screwed it up during the repair. As most others on here seem to have had a positive experience, I may be the unsatisfied minority.

    Beware of wolves in sheeps clothing!

    I decided to look em up on google and check their reviews ... if you click on a lot of their reviews you will notice that they are very suspect and more than likely fake and made up on the same date with a very intriguing story... plus the 1 bad review gets 0 out 5 dislikes and ALL the reviewers have only 1 review and it just so happens its just for ubreakifix

    CLICK HERE TO SEE THEIR GOOGLE REVIEWS

    id like to say the same for some posts on this website as well.

    im not going to use them, im sorry i cannot give a good review even though i never had their service i dont like fake companies who falsify and try to mislead us... #imjustsayin

    I had a bad experience with iResq.

    I sent my 2G in for a battery replacement. When I got it back, which they shipped to an incorrect old address (that was in their system and not on my order). I was getting no signal so I sent it back and then sent back to me. It worked for a day and lost the signal again. I mailed it back in and they sent it back to me. The problem was that the first two times, they didn't bother testing the phone before they shipped it out. The third time, they played with it for a few hours before sending it back to me. It was never the same since at the battery life really wasn't any better after the replacement.

    Just some more 2 cents since this thread comes up in a Google search for UBreakIFix:

    Sent in my IPhone 3G that had taken a bath in a handbag full of Diet Coke (long story). Only the top end with the headphone jack was submerged, and only for a few minutes. It powered on intermittently until the screen went white and it died.

    Long story short: UBreakIFix, well, fixed it! Works great and they had it back to me in only three or four days.

    I just figured I'd take the risk since it appears even used, 8GB IPhone 3Gs are selling for north of $200 on Ebay. Now I've got my trusty old model back to be used for trips overseas and for Skype streaming.

    PM me if you have questions, but there's really not much else to tell. Hope others have good luck too.

    Love this guy

    I went to the walk-in location in Atlanta, back in June, with cracked screen. It didn't fall far off my lap and landed on the curb just on a outside edge of the glass. I attempted to replace glass and found I had the wrong part. 4g screen and glass are not separate. I took it apart before I realized it, tho. I got out and fixed in just a few minutes. Didn't even need a restore to get my numbers and apps back.

    I used the Miami ubreakifx center and it sucked balls. don't use them. do a search online, you will find your 411 on their service.

    Horrible

    The people at ubreakifix were very rude, the price was high. Then a few days after them fixing the glass on my iPhone 4 I was having problems with the screen not working rite. I took it back to ubreakifix in pembroke pines fl, they told me to leave the phone for hours for it to reoccour or that I'd have to pay another $150!!! Wow what a ripoff. Ubreakifix does not actually use genuine apple parts because I brought the phone into an apple store who said before they even opened up the phone that they could tell it was not stock. I'm very disappointed an would recommend going anywhere else but ubreakifix. They will take your money and void your warranty. The best bet it pay another 50 and go to apple and get a brand new phone

    Worst Service and People E-V-E-R !!!!

    Do not go there, do not dare to leave your Apple product with these really bad guys. They do not what are doing !!!

    I went these (UbreakIfix on Pembroke Pines FL 33026) to get a new battery for my Ipod Classic 4thGeneration. Just a simple battery change.

    After approximately 2 weeks they returned it to me with a really bad installation of an oversize battery, Ipod was almost open on the sides and upper part, after my complaint they told me that the battery was too big, and promised to order a smaller one to arrive in 2 or 3 days. Q: How a tech with a brain could install an oversize battery and pretend to give back to a customer???

    After one week without receiving any calls, I went there to pick up my ipod, no new battery was installed, no fix, bad attitude. I told them, right away, to install my old original battery. They really scratched the ipod on the sides and bend the metal rear cover, and WASTED my time.

    They only said, we are sorry, yeah, after 3 weeks they gave you that kind of response. They are a bunch of useless guys.

    S-T-A-Y- A-W-A-Y AT ALL COST FROM THESE GUYS @ UBREAKIFIX.

    GO TO THE APPLE STORE OR ELSE.

    Criminals

    These people are criminals
    They actually steal good parts out of your phone and sell them
    Also they sell drugs out of their stores .
    Don't go there unless u want to be harassed by them when u want your phone back
    If you deal with one person to fix tour device that person will soon become unavailable and they will send you to the headquarters in Orlando which will tell you don't know anything about that person.
    Happened to me !
    If you see them call police

    Fixed that for you. Of course, you could have just paid Apple to repair it, but then you wouldn't have had the wonderful experience of committing fraud and making it harder for people with legitimate problems to get service. Thanks!

    I know these people personally and have been friends with them for many years so they are legit and honest. They are in Sacramento and have two stores.

    http://www.ipartsrepair.com/

    Well you know, its one reason Apple can keep customers because they replace things when they shouldnt. I mean it isnt Apple directly but they should have a limit or guideline and direct that to the managers of their stores.

    I'm sorry, it's Apple's fault for having a customer service oriented business model? I guess it's someone's fault for being robbed if they walk down the street with a high price phone as well, thanks, had my morals wrong all these years.

    Hmm, so you replied to the guy who lied about his phone and saying how he is making it harder for some to get real service and commiting fraud but your replying to me that im trying to say something negative about Apple?

    Im saying Apple allows this to happen. They allow the fraud your complaining about and they dont seem to enforce any guidelines to the managers of their stores because some people have no morals when it comes to wanting something for nothing when it is their own fault for breaking it.
