Apple Stores Will Replace Broken iPhone Displays

You may have seen some information about Apple offering to replace your iPhone screen if you take it to an Apple store and have a “Genius” do it for you. Lets go over some of the details of this and why this is not the best option. First off is the cost to do this which does not include your time or the mileage to get to an Apple store. This repair will run you $199 for the 3G or 3GS even if just the Touch Panel is broken. The Apple “Genius” will take it in the back room and pull the old screen out probably with a case opener (XX1521) tool or suction cup (XX2373) and put a new screen in it for you. This is a 10 minute do it your self repair that will run you $199 from Apple. At DirectFix we carry the same screens, tools and free online videos you need to do this yourself. You do not need to be a “Genius” to do this just watch our free videos below. The 3G complete screen we carry (IP-2164) is only $99 and the 3GS complete screen we carry is only $149. That will save you $50 to $100 from what the Apple store will charge you. Now I am no “Genius” but I can also do some basic math and I do not know many people that make $199 for 10 Minutes of work. Also if you have a Jailbroke iPhone Apple will not fix it for you no matter what. So your choice is to spend $199 at the Apple Store for 10 Minutes of work or save the money and order the part from DirectFix.com and do it yourself.

Another note if you are a little more technical and have more time on your hands there are even cheaper solutions. If you only broken the Touch Panel on the 3G or 3GS this part can be replaced by its self. There are some additional tools and and adhesive kit needed but the Touch Panel only runs $30 for the 3G and $40 for the 3GS (IP-2320). That would then save you $160 to $170 from the price that the Apple store charges. As you can see there are ways to save money and doing a little research can go a long way.

Not All iPhone Repair Directions Are Created Equal

“Taking a metal spudger to a phone and ripping it apart is not the same as instructing someone how to properly fix a phone”

Morgan Hill, Calif. – May 6, 2010DirectFix.com, the leader in “You Fix It” replacement parts, accessories and videos for iPhones, Blackberrys, iPods, PDAs and handheld games, today announced an article on educating people on the difference between ripping an iPhone or other electronic gadget apart with a metal spudger and teaching someone how to properly take apart / repair an item.

In the race to be first in the world of electronic disassembly, especially when a new electronic gadget gets released, people sometime take short cuts. Some websites and companies will travel the earth in order to get their hands on devices first so they can rip them apart and post on the web what the inside of a gadget looks like in the hope that the media or major networks will pick up on the story. In their haste to be first the result is that readers will suffer terrible losses by following these directions that are posted so quickly. When someone actually tries to follow these convoluted directions, which most of the time are missing many keys steps, they end of damaging their own gadget beyond repair with no help from the company or person that posted them.

Things to watch out for when viewing the latest gadget take apart; first, if they are using low quality “still” photos then you might want to look elsewhere. Second, if they ever tell you to use a metal object like a “Metal Spudger” on your nice shinny gadget you may want to find another set of directions. Third, if they do have pictures, then look at them close to see if any of the parts look bent, scratched or damaged from someone ripping it apart instead of taking it apart properly. And finally, if they include written directions, then are they more interested in telling you what is inside the gadget or how to properly fix it?

DirectFix.com has taken the approach of using High-Definition Videos to instruct people on how to properly take apart their gadgets. “Back in 1998 when we did do our directions with pictures it was the only media available to us says Robert Stanley, founder of DirectFix.com. “It is now 2010 and High-Definition video directions are the only way to show someone how to fix their electronic device.” Robert goes on to explain how the use of pictures leaves out so many steps and creates questions in the customer’s mind. “There are no questions when it comes to a free high-definition video as people can watch it as many times as they like”, explains Mr. Stanley.

Mr. Stanley’s company DirectFix.com has over 100 different Video directions and they are adding more weekly. With over 6 million views on his YouTube repair direction videos you might want to consider taking a look the next time you break your gadget and want to fix it yourself.

With millions of gadgets and iPhones sold yearly; users are breaking them on a regular basis. Many electronic devices like the iPhone have quickly become an indispensable, vital personal and business tool, which means breaking one, can be inconvenient and expensive in terms of downtime. With the parts that DirectFix.com sells and their free video directions there is no reason that you could not fix it yourself and save money.
