    I've heard of iPads and iPhones going into those places for a bit of work and coming out gutted of the most expensive parts. You wouldn't notice the difference until it's too late.

    What model is it? You can get apple to service it. Costs €231 for an iPad mini, €251 for an iPad 1&2, and €301 for 3&4.
    It's pricey, but they will fix it and give you a warranty.
    There is no emoticon for what I am feeling.

    Been ringing around to look to get my iPhone 5 screen fixed. A few mad prices and others telling me it would take 3 days. A place in Ballymount seems the best so far, €150 but they do it in 90 minutes.

    In2It in town
    Really good at replacing iPhone / iPad screens and they don't use cheap Chinese shite

    Plus they sponser pats and that might be worth mentioning when in the shop
    Little things like that could mean a renewal in sponsorship

    If you can't get to town then Max Byrnes
    Heard the same about those Asian phone shops in town
