Rejoice: iPhone 4 Repairs Now Available

For the past 2 years, we here at Jet City Devices have fixed over 4000 iPhones for people in Chicago and Seattle. Those iPhones were all the 3G & 3GS versions of the phone. We’re excited to announce today that we’ll be able to continue that tradition of fixing iPhones for people with our new iPhone 4 screen repair service!

Okay, that’s a little bit of a fib – we’ve actually been fixing the iPhone 4 for about 6 weeks now but we wanted to wait to announce it to the world until we had the process really nailed down, a good supply chain setup, and all of our employees thoroughly trained. That has now happened so we’re ready for you and your broken iPhone 4.

Of course, you’re probably wondering how much and where to bring it into, eh? At the moment, we’re charging $159 for the repair. If you come in to our Chicago or Seattle office, we can fix it for you in about 30 minutes. If you mail it in to us, we’ll get it fixed and mailed back out within 24 hours.

So why is it so much more expensive than our iPhone 3G or 3GS repairs? Here’s a quote from a press release announcing our iPhone 4 repair:

“The reason for the additional [iPhone 4 repair] charge is three fold. First, the product is much newer and there are less parts available. Secondly, the quality of the parts is higher. For example, the LCD (the part that displays the picture) has 4 times the resolution of the 3G or 3GS LCDs. Lastly, and most importantly, Apple changed the design of the iPhone 4 to make the LCD and touchscreen glass inseparable. In the 3G & 3GS, if the touchscreen glass broke, the LCD was usually fine and they could replace the front glass and reuse a customer’s existing LCD. Not so with the iPhone 4. Even if just the front glass is cracked, the glass and LCD must both be replaced.”

Despite the seemingly high price, Jet City Devices offers one of the least expensive iPhone 4 screen repairs we’ve seen anywhere. In addition, we’re constantly on the look out for more affordable parts and as we find them, we’ll start lowering the price of this repair to make sure our customers get the best price possible.

If you’re interested in having us do this repair or have any questions, feel free to email or call us (800-272-0897).
