    Default Phone screen repair

    Hi all, I'm looking for somewhere to get my wife's Samsung Galaxy S3's screen fixed, hopefully not for R2000 like the place at the mall is quoting. Someone suggested http://www.ismashedsa.co.za/

    Does anyone here know of any good places around Joburg to get phone screens fixed?

    Thanks Donsie

    I've called around a bit today, and here are my notes. I'm taking it to the Cell Shack at Belairs mall, who say they can do it for R500, they just need it overnight. Seems if it's just the glass and not the touchpad stuff, it's way cheaper, but a lot of people probably just replace both for R2+

    The R2000 is because Samsung doesn't sell just the glass, but the glass is around R150 on bid or buy if you're brave enough to do it yourself.

    Here you go. I got mine from these guys. Took about a week to get to me.

    Try www.cellclinic.co.za

    Friend of mine used them for his Galaxy S3 screen. They arranged for a courier to fetch it at his work on a Monday and it was returned on Wednesday. You also has a 1 year warranty on the screen. They're a Samsung accredited repair center.

    Think he paid R1700
