Where to get iPhone repaired in Mauritius?
Just so you know, my iPhone was unlocked by the mobile network itself so it's not jailbroken or anything!
I'd rather not attempt opening the case myself and leave it to the professionals.
next time you have a problem with your home button and while looking for someone to repair it, just switch on your assistive touch ;)
There are many videos on YouTube which walks you through the procedures to fixing your iPhone step by step. Have a look at them and see whether they seem easy for you to follow, it'll save you lots of money.
Bad luck with me, I managed to break the second connector as well! Anyway, I managed to bring up the connectors with the help of some sellotape by placing it under the little home button circuit so that it is elevated and can make contact with the other plate located on the iphone screen inside part. When everything was screwed back on, my Home button was working as NEW :)
I'd rather buy a new phone than leaving it in his custody. And for what it's worth, a new Home button repair kit costs £3 from ebay (that's Rs150). I was going to order one and replace it but then I decided to try something else before that. I took out my DIY tools (soldering iron & solder) and put some solder on the Home button circuit so that it would make contact with the iPhone. You need a steady hand and confidence in yourself though but the end result is all worth it.
iPhone is back to normal now and since it's soldered now, I reckon it's going to last longer :)
You are very right. HEMSIE IS A VERY RUDE GUY... HE SHOULD KNOW HOW TO RESPECT CLIENTS!!!
