Just a random one.

How much would you expect to pay to have your Iphone screen replaced ?? I've done a few for friends and family, but my mate said he'd get some from his work mates for me to do, just wondered how much to charge. (If I do them)

I had an Iphone 5 done for £30 quid at a shop I think. Apple do it themselves for around that much.

Fella round my area charges between £30-50 per phone depending on the the model and how new it was, Guy makes a bomb.

People don't realise it's only a matter of visiting eBay, paying £8-10 for a replacement kit, prying a screen off, unplugging a wire of two, Then replugging it into the new screen! I think people are generally just under the assumption that technology is super fragile and so opt to pay to have it done by a specialist.

Easy money, Too bad people have caught on around my area. In my town theres atleast 4 shops that offer these repairs at really competitive prices.

It get a little more involved if the home button need swapping over. Fingerprint recognition stays with the button/phone, so needs swapping over.

Makes me laugh it really does.... theu lash oit on a handset worth pushing a grand and they won't buy a decent case to protect their phone... my Note 9 costs £899 to replace the case cost £26 and its paid for itself already

done my daughters screen, bloody fiddly job but saved £90 from what I was quoted from shop, not sure I could make a living out of doing them as it took me 4 hours, never seen screws that small in my life

That's if it's still under warranty, at least £100 if it's not. Screen and new case for around £45 in a reliable shop in Hull.

Otterbox cases.... dropped my old Note 4 out of a high bay fork lift from about 30' up.... I feared the worst... when I lowered the cab and got the phone back there wasnt a mark on it.... every phone I have had for the last 10 years has had an otterbox case on it... not the cheapest but definitely the best

I use the Survivor case by Griffin. That and a bullet proof multilayer screen protector and no issues despite nearly three years of abuse.
