Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Is it as straightforward as the utube videos would have me believe? Or should I let a proper man do it for me?
  2. Depends how good your 'hands on tech' is & if it's anything like me then get it done locally,

    £9 off fleabay + up to 20 mins all done sounds good untill you try it yourself ;-)

  3. If a job's worth doing, it's worth paying someone to do it properly.
    The 3 ipod touches in my household have all been taken apart DIY stylee, and had various bits replaced at some point The ones you see on youtube have all been opened previously, which makes it a hell of a lot easier. My first couple of attempts resulted in forking out for new screens to replace the ones I broke, and various other bits my sausage fingers snapped.
    If you have the patience, a delicate touch, and a bit of spare time on your hands then go ahead. If you know a bloke on the sunday market who can do it cheaply, pay him to do it. Once they have been opened they are rarely ever 100% again.
    good luck

    Exchange, like for like, I'm afraid. Upgrade is considerably more.
  7. Is that just for contract customers?
  8. No, its offered to everyone, everywhere. The prices vary from place to place (country to country) and part damaged. I paid 200$ for an iPhone 4 swap (screen cracked) twice over.
