Affordable Computer and Cell Phone Repair | iFixYouri {Review}

At a mom’s meeting, one of the moms mentioned that her husband worked at this place called IFixYourI. As someone who always seems to have a device (or few) that needs repair of some sort, my ears perked up. She explained that the owner started as an iPhone repair but has expanded to most electronic devices.

She was telling us some of the craziness that they are mailed (yes, mailed), including this college student who wrecked his computer by vomiting on it. At the time, they were assessing it. I don’t know if they fixed it, but the key is that they tried, through the disgusting mess.

So, when I finally dragged my behind over there (not far, just lazy), I took an old shattered iPod for repair first. My son had dropped it during our move across country from the bed of the moving truck to the ground. I didn’t have high hopes for its repair. Turns out I was right.

But the cool thing was that I wasn’t charged since they couldn’t fix it. No holding fee, no deposit, no fee at all. iFixYouri called me about its inability to turn the device on then told them they could recycle it if they wanted to.

I asked questions about a computer I wanted to bring in and they let me know that virus removal was about $80. Considering Geek Squad was a $99 deposit just to do an assessment, then even more to remove it, this was a great deal.


 

I dropped it off, letting them know that a full hard drive wipe and recovery was ok if they deemed it necessary to remove the virus.

When they finished, the bill was just $21!

iFixYouri determined that it wasn’t a virus causing the problems, but some out of wacky default settings.

Needless to say, I was grateful that I “saved” $60!

The only con I could even mention is that I dropped it off on a Saturday and didn’t get a call until the following Wednesday.

At this location in West Palm Beach, they have no computer techs on the weekend, focusing on phones instead.

I also told them that it was no rush since it had been months since our last use, a couple of extra days wouldn’t matter. I don’t know the speed if you said you needed it ASAP, on a weekday or a call ahead.

iFixYouri has several locations in Palm Beach County, Florida, Orange County, Florida and Suffolk County, Massachusetts.

I would highly recommend trying them out if there is a location in your neighborhood.

    I need this business. I am constantly damaging my iPhone and I hate to go to Verizon to get it fixed because they are always so busy. So, I will check this out and see if we have one here.

    That sounds like an awesome service center and I like that it’s affordable too. The customer service is definitely nice and it’s really good to have a shop you can go to for damaged gadgets, that’s essential these days.

  5. I like the name, cool! I can relate with the Geeksquad hesitation, back then they were really good but somehow their business thrived greatly but quality suffered, not getting the bang out of our buck I guess.

  6. Nikki says:

    Wow, nice post! Thanks for sharing this one and I’m glad that we can actually save from this!

  7. Danne Reed says:

  8. Akhil Sharma says:

    iFixYouri is a great concept and is really helpful; I definitely need this business.

  9. I wish I lived in an area where they had this company. I just had my computer repaired and would have loved to have used them.

  10. Nicole Escat says:

    There is such a thing like this? I never knew about it! Thanks for sharing and I am looking forward on contacting them for PC repairs.

  11. Kathy says:

    That’s a great savings. I’m always looking for ways to save money too. Next time I need something like this I will certainly be checking it out.

  12. Dawn says:

    I wish I had known about this a few years ago. I had gotten my daughter a brand new phone and she dropped it the next day and shattered the inner screen. We ended up having to replace the entire phone for more than we originally bought the phone for.

    1. April Noelle says:

      OH NO! Yes, these guys are extremely skilled and will at least let you know if you can fix it rather than replace it.

  13. IFixYourI sounds like an amazing service. I love that they are very affordable. $21 is super huge savings.

  14. What an awesome service iFixYouri seem to offer. Glad yo recommend and share their services, because you got good service. we need more bloggers like you. These days it seems more of reviews of products that seem so unnatural. Well done you!

  15. What a great service!

  16. Lori Felix says:

    I have had to have a couple cell phone screens replaced over the years and it can get really expensive especially if you take it to the manufacturer. Hopefully they will expand iFixYouri to my area so I can start saving some money on repairs.

  17. mya.k says:

    Really good name. I have never had my phone or laptop repaired before but I heard that it is kind of expensive and you sharing this would help for that.

  18. Lisa Rios says:

    iFixYouri, I am loving that name, pretty unique but good enough to simple explain what their service is all about. Their service sounds pretty good at an affordable price & it is great they are available in many areas.

  19. Rosey says:

    That’s def. finding a need and filling it. Most everyone I know has one broken device or another.

  20. Camesha says:

    This is a great service! The best part is that it didn’t cost a ton of money! That always a good thing!

  21. Jennifer H says:

    What a great price! We have one in town, but I’ve never needed to use their services. It’s nice to know they are reliable.
