They did exactly what they said they'd do and at the promised price and time. In fact I was thrilled with the service I received as a result of another matter involving my phone. Much appreciated!!

Common Phone Problems & Some Tweaks You Can Try Yourself First

Before rushing your device down to the repair-shop in a panic here are some common phone problems and failures that you can try correcting yourself:

Fast Draining Battery

Oftentimes - especially on phones that are beginning to age - it is the battery itself that needs to be replaced.  

If the problem happened suddenly - you can try removing any recently installed apps.

Try reducing your screen brightness.

Check your battery usage under settings and disable any backgrounds apps that may be draining your battery.

Slow or Lagging Response

The first thing to do is clear the device cache. 

Remove all unused and unnecessary apps.

Uninstall any UI themes.

No WiFi Connection

Try disconnecting and reconnecting to the wireless network.

Try connecting to another wireless network.

Turn WiFi feature off then back on.

Restart your phone - power it off and back on.

Phone is Getting Way Too Hot

Remove recently installed apps.

Remove large apps.

Uninstall as many games as possible.

Check for discoloration (indicating liquid damage) at the charging port. (Bring it in for repair)

Stuck in Reboot Loop or Stuck at Startup Logo

Power cycle your phone - hold the power button or the power and home buttons until it restarts.

Remove and reinsert the battery (if there is battery access).

Connect to a charger for 30 minutes or longer.

Touch ID not Working

This is usually a result of physical damage but try restarting your phone first.

Screen Doesn't Repsond to Touch

Usually a hardware problem requiring screen replacment, but just to be sure power cycle your phone.

Cannot Download or Install New Apps

Restart your phone.

Check that you have available storage space.

Clear the cache.

Add a new or different Google or iCloud account. 

Smartphone Repair

Since the advent of the PDAs around the turn of the millennium, tech companies have tried to build mobile computers that can be used on-the-go and always available. It took a few years for the PDAs to be morphed into smartphones, and with each new generation of the smartphone the manufacturers succeeded in embedding increasing functions and uses into the phone.

Our most popular smartphone repairs include: iPhone screen replacement, Samsung Galaxy repair, Blackberry repairphone liquid damage repair.

Samsung Authorized Repair Centre, Apple iPhone, Blackberry, HTC, LG, Nokia, Motorola, Sony Cell Phone Repairs.

What distinguishes smartphones from feature phones is essentially smartphones come with an operating system that can then use a myriad applications….just like a computer. So smartphones have hardware, an operating systems layer and finally applications written by third-parties developed using the operating system APIs.

Blackberry from Research In Motion created the first smartphone for business use with limited user functionality. It was in 2006 that the first consumer-targeted Blackberry 8700 series was introduced.

Apple released their first iPhone in 2007 which heralded a new era in smartphones, one in which Apple created the hardware and an operating system that seamlessly integrated with the hardware. The elegant styling, the intuitively easy-to-use interface, and the well-tested third-party Apple-certified application software combined together to make for a delightful user experience.

We have been repairing cell phones and iPhones since 2007 when the first iPhone 2  was released in the US, and every generation since.

We have tons of happy users who have been turning to us for the repair needs of all their digital devices including cell phones, iPhones, computers, tablets, etc.

We are now more dependent on these smartphones for a variety of needs including voice call, text messages, emails, appointment calendars, wake-up alarms, music, driving directions, social media interaction, financial management, games, videos, and a myriad of other functions which expand with each new model.

iPhones were soon followed by Motorola, Nokia,  HTC, Sony, LG, Samsung and a host of technology companies including ASUS, Acer, Dell, HP, Toshiba,….and everyone else

We repair a wide range of the smartphone brands including ASUS, Acer Blackberry, Dell, HTC, Apple, LG, Microsoft, Nokia, Motorola, Samsung and Sony, in addition to most of the tablets, laptops, Macbooks, and gaming consoles.

Their are 2 options available to repair your smartphones:

  1. The DIY approache where you watch a lot of online videos, understand what it takes to repair your phone, find part and tool suppliers online, order the parts, wait to receive them, patiently and carefully disassemble your life-on-the-line smartphone, and a few hours later …..!!!!
  2. The phone does not work
  3. The part you ordered was defective
  4. You damaged another part
  5. You damaged the motherboard or the brain of your phone….and your phone is toast!
  6. Or…maybe there is hope! You pickup all the screws, cables and other pieces and trot off to your favourite repair folks….The TechKnow Space.
  7. You trot off to The TechKnow Space, have their certified expert technicians work on your phone for an hour while you sip coffee in their lounge and watch Netflix….and before you know it, your phone is ready to play!


As usual, all our cell phone repairs come with a 60-day warranty for parts and labour.

Smashed my iPhone 6 Plus screen & the team here replaced it in less than 90 mins. Was dubious after seeing some poor reviews, but so far (4 days) the workmanship has been spot on & will absolutely return next time I need a screen replaced on a device.
