Dish will do the necessary Saucery to fix your IPhone
Satellite TV service Dish has announced plans to moonlight as an unauthorized iPhone repair service. The US telly provider said it will be dispatching its technicians to offer on-site repairs or replacements for the screens and batteries in certain Apple phones ranging from the iPhone 5 to the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The service …
It was the 4/4S series where things were a bit painful.
Still, it makes sense for someone to do this, as a lot of people don't know which end of a screwdriver to use and would not feel any more comfortable doing this than opening up their PC to upgrade the RAM. Since Dish, being a satellite TV/internet provider, has a lot of customers in rural areas far away from Apple Stores, and already comes to people's homes, I suppose it makes some sort of sense for them to offer this service. Anyone with enough of a brain that you can train to align a satellite dish can be trained to replace a screen or battery in those models of iPhone.
The 4/4S was a 3 minute battery replacement, but the screen replacement need a bit of practice to get the ribbon cables through the chassis metal without ripping them.
Otherwise the 4/4S was straightforward.
The 5 is a very simple job, screen or battery, 5C a bit more tricky with its booby trap cable.
I did hundreds of iPhone repairs for beer money, it was fun for a while. Fingerprint sensor awkwardness will put a stop to easy screen replacements though.
Bin men here are "refuse technicians"
I was a "Pest control Technician" although never once did i need to change a rats battery or rewire a flea.
Call them what they are for fucks sake and stop with all the PC pandering bollocks.
Cleaners are cleaners, not dirt removal technicians.
Mechanics are mechanics, not vehicular transportation device technicians.
mechanics are technicians these days.
When I did a mechanics apprenticeship a computer was bigger than a car.
They run a diagnostic, just like an electronics technician. They replace all the components the diagnostic says to replace, if it still doesn't work, the old school mechanic gets to fix it.
Seriously? I've installed a few dishes, and am generally good with tech fix-it, but would think twice about cracking open an iPhone.
Sounds like Dish may be overestimating their employees.
(1. Screw dish to wall. 2. Adjust axis A according to chart you found on the Internet. 3. Adjust axis B til the TV beeps.)
Oh yeah, drill holes through wall for cable.
