    Default Any recommendations for repairs?
    The camera and vibrate function died on my 2G and I'm looking to get it repaired but can't seem to find anyone in Houston, TX to do it. Asked a few people here known for repairs and they don't seem interested. Anybody have any luck with one of the bazillion sites I could mail it off to?

    He repairs for tips only.
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    Yeah, sent two messages and he didn't respond to my requests for a rough estimate of how much it would cost to fix.

    Someone recommended irepair.ca, but I dunno. I'm really surprised that I can't find anyone in the 4th largest city in the country to fix this thing.

    You could try cpjr .. I know he messes with a lot of 3g's so I'm sure he could help you out.

    Read through the thread.
    Or if you're lazy, skip to the last post.

    So one1 isn't really doing it anymore, and cpjr referred me to him. So both of those options are exhausted. Any others? Could I just restore it to factory settings and take it to the Apple store without a SIM card? How much would they charge me to fix, or would they even fix it?

    One1 is still doing it I believe, just read the last post about asking him how much.
    You can take it back to apple and have them replace it if you are still under warranty, which you probably are not.
    I think it's
    $199 out of warranty.
