    I've thought of doing repairs at a flea market but didn't think there would be much business. Congrats on all the work.

    Btw, anyone have any recommendations on what to do with broken iPhone glass, iPad glass and stuff like that? Was thinking of just recycling them but are there places that buy these broken parts?

    Btw, for those of us who do a lot of them, a company contacted me after seeing my ad on Craigslist. cashforlcds.com. Told me they give $3.50 for iPhone 4/4S LCD's. more money for the 5's and even more for the galaxy s3. Can't remember how much for those 2 though. But I do know I'm thinking of getting a package together.

    Nice! PT only pays $2.5 - I've got about 30-40 laying around right now I started saving after realizing people bought them. Who knows how many hundred I probably threw away before lol

    The front looks great!

    Thanks for the info iRevival. I had a feeling they would be worth something, getting a package ready later this week for ~250 broken iPhone fronts

    I also run a local shop in Orange, CA. Though I have to do it out of my apartment because I am a college student (But I still run a professional service) I use YELP as well. good to see the reviews after you help a customer!

    So far, so good! Numbers fell off a little bit due to moving our main location but that's to be expected. As far as keeping up, that's been better than expected so I can't complain. A lot of our customers are finding us. We're also opening 2 more locations in the next 6 months.

    IFixandRepair is telling people that they bought us out. I fixed that real quick (hopefully) with a call to their regional manager. She actually tried to recruit me so I still had her number.

    And funny thing, today they actually called over to me because they messed something up. They needed a power/prox flex cable for a CDMA phone. I told them yes I did have it but no they could not buy it from me.

    2 weeks ago they called asking for an iPod Touch 4th Gen power/volume flex. I gave them the same answer. The balls on them!

    I'll post more pics soon of the inside.

    Hope this helps!

    If you guys do use this company, make sure to mention that I referred you

    -Speedy iRepairs
    You said they are in China, therefore assuming you have to pay to ship to China? No thanks lol

    Here's a question I haven't seen yet.

    Anyone know a good accessories supplier. I don't really want to go through focus (my main supplier at the moment).
