I've got an old iPod touch 2G that needs its headphone jack replaced (I've tried all sorts of things to get it working again but to no avail - and, of course, it stopped working right after the warranty expired). Can anyone recommend a cheap but decent repair place here in Auckland?
The Core in Newton is close by but they're ridiculously overpriced. $80 just for a diagnostic! I've been in contact with iDoctorNZ in Tauranga. They've quoted me $110 to replace the headphone jack ($70 for the part, $40 for the labor). I've also been in touch with the guy at Gee Computers in Flat Bush, who says he'll do it for $80, or only $60 if I also get the following repairs on my iPhone done ...
I've also just bought a secondhand iPhone 3GS, which came with a cracked back cover (in the usual place down by the data port), a superficially scratched screen, and a possibly sticky home button. The latter doesn't seem as responsive or as "clicky" as the button on my iPod touch, but maybe the iPhone buttons are just different? Anyway, the guy at Gee Computers said he'd fix all that for $150. He gave me a rather confusing answer when I asked about a guarantee on his work.
Anyone know of a better place?
Also, lastly, I am wondering if it is possible to transfer the known wifi networks data from my iPod touch to my new iPhone. It would suck to have to go around asking everyone for their wifi passwords again.
Thanks in advance,
