Hey all,

I know there are a few Authorised iPhone techs lurking around here who should be able to awsner this pretty quickly.

The issue I have is the mute switch on my 6Plus has become very touchy and the slightist bump while its in my pocket will unmute the phone.
How big of a job time wise is it to replace the mute switch on an iPhone 6 plus? 
Am I likely to get this repaired the same day?

On a second note, Is there an Apple service center in Auckland CBD that's worth going to, Don't particularly want to go to Yoobee due to bad repair experience in the past.

Ubertec is the closest one to the CBD (Parnell). From the experience of people that I know and trust, they seem to be streets ahead of Yoobee.

I had this exact same problem when I bought my iPhone 6 last year. I bought it through the Apple Store so I had to use their mail in service.

I contacted them and they sent me a pre-paid courier bag, box and bubble wrap. I sent my iPhone to them (courier picked it up) on a Thursday and I had a new phone by Tuesday morning. (they didn't fix it, they just replaced it which is cool since I had chips on the back from when I dropped it..)

So it was only three days without a phone (five if you count the weekend I suppose). Bit of a pain being phoneless but their service was quite fast and painless!
