My iPhone is still having issues whereby I get the "This Accessory is not made to work with iPhone" message popping up regularly. It's now got to the point whereby I can't type a full text without this thing coming up - and because the screen is always lighting up the battery runs out after a day of use. I notice when i stick a needle into the dock connector and wiggle the connector it disappears.

Repairs needed! shouldn't be too much of a major maybe just a dock connector replacement. looking for reliable and reasonably priced 3rd party repairer who is familiar with touches and iphones.

Please post up details!

Send private message - these guys are based in Parnell. Ask for Sunil - very nice chap :)

And no, I have no affiliation :P

Thanks for the lead. Have emailed those guys - convenient because I work in the CBD. If I go ahead with them I will post a review on the experience here for reference.

Keep an eye out

That would be great. I would be quite interested to hear how it goes Smile As I said, I'm not affiliated and have only dealt with Sunil via email (they approached us when we first started up to check if they were allowed to use our repository for commercial use).
If they're good enough we may add them as a recommended retailer to so, your opinion could be a deciding factor Tongue out

Have been liaising with Sunil from Kiwi Iphone via email & phone - definitely the guy to talk to, very helpful and obliging. He has talked with his engineers who are not entirely comfortable operating on my iPhone in case something goes wrong. However, by fate they have the part that I needed which Sunil offered to send to me for no charge ($6.50 for the courier - he offered to send via post for free). Bare in mind that I did not purchase my iPhone from Kiwi iPhone so this is purely an act of generosity I think worth noting.

Despite Kiwi iPhone's reluctance to install the new part they have referred me on to OmniTech in Henderson who have agreed to have a look. Been told that it is a b!tch to get into the thing and disassemble though so labour could be a few pangos.

Will keep you posted.

sproyd: ... He has talked with his engineers who are not entirely comfortable operating on my iPhone in case something goes wrong...

Interesting. They may want to take the word "servicing" off their website then. There's not much servicing you can do without going under the hood :P

Great response though! And to supply you the part free of charge and even offer to post it for nothing. Impressive!

Do let us know how you get on at OmniTech. Maybe once they've popped their iPhone cherry (:P) they may be able to provide servicing for Auckland?

have had multiple phones (not iphones though) through OmniTech for servicing and their service is definitely professional and top notch
