All other models of iPhone only the original option is available on our website. We can arrange a lower cost option if requested.

Do you repair phones with water damage?

Yes we have all the tools and equipment required to repair phones with water damage. We also offer an option to select a free water damage diagnostic on our website for all iPhone and Samsung models. We normally require 24 hours to diagnose and send a price quote for this repair service. The way it works is to start by booking an appointment reservation online with drop off or free pickup and delivery service (phones with water damage can NOT be repaired on-site or with 2-hour expedited service). Next we diagnose the extent of the water damage to the phone and prepare a price quote with parts and labor to repair the device. At this point there is no cost to the customer, only after you agree to the price quote do we start the work to repair the phone. Once the phone is finished and thoroughly inspected with our 23-point checklist we will contact you to arrange delivery or pickup and payment is required at this point. We do include 40€ charge for all completed and repaired phones. If the phone can’t be fixed you are charged nothing. There is NO warranty for water-damaged phones.

How do I pay?

You pay when the mobile device if completed. There are no pre-pay costs associated with our repairs. We want your 100% satisfaction for the services we performed therefore you pay when either the phone is delivered to you, the on-site repair is completed or when you pick up the phone from our shop location.

We know what you’re thinking: Just like that? Yes, and also we use only genuine quality parts for all repairs, if it helps making up your mind.
