    My iPhone spent a night in a dumpster (long story) and has suffered "liquids damage".

    I see there are all kinds of places online that will accept $100 or $150 etc to repair your water damaged phone within 24hrs and then send it back to you.

    Examples:

    http://iphone4repairservice.com/iphone-4-water-damage-repair.html
    http://www.ifixyouri.com/34-iphone-4-repair
    http://www.fix-iphones.com/iphone-4-repair.html

    Does anyone have experience with getting this done? There are large differences in prices and I wonder if the cheap ones end up finding ways of charging you extra and that kind of thing. And I just wonder if any of them have particularly good reputations. Any input appreciated.

    I have used ifixyouri a few times for repairs and have been satisfied with their work and service.

    They definitely seem like a big one. But they are twice the price of a couple of those others. Did you pick them for any particular reason? I would prefer not to pay twice as much unless it was really better.

    If it's within $100 I would just buy a replacement from Apple for $200.

    I came across good reviews online and figured I'll try them. I used their services 3 times so far and they have done a great job and with fast turnaround. They also use Apple genuine parts so make sure the place you choose does also. There's many places that use cheap Chinese knockoff screens and parts in general that suck and are of poor quality.
