HTCOne of the strongest players in the mobile phone market at the moment is HTC and with good reason. HTC has a reputation for cutting edge designs with excellent functionality and they don't limit their phones to just one Operating System(OS) choice.

But as with a lot of new mobile phones today as they get smaller, faster and have more features they are becoming increasingly hard to repair. Even to the point that some of our customers have reported other mobile repairers have told them that some repairs on HTC, particularly screens, can not be repaired at all. However, Fix My Mobile can repair any problem your HTC may have. We can do screen repairs on any model of HTC.

HTC screen repairs can take up to 3 weeks when dealing with HTC directly. Fix My Mobile can have your HTC's screen replaced and back to you in less than 3 days. For other problems, we can have your phone repaired in 2 hours!

Some of the more common problems that your HTC may face are;
- Poor sound quality due to faulty speaker or speaker stops working all together.
- Dents in the metal housing which may lead to buttons not responding correctly.
- Faulty or loose micro usb or charger connector.
- Faulty power button.

HTC uses the Android operating system or the Windows 7 operating system depending on which hand set you have. We are able to do HTC Rom and software updates on either operating system.

Updating your operating system is very important as it can help or even fix problems such as;
- Poor battery life.
- Software crashes and hangs.
- Better audio quality.
- Faster website load times.
- Better performance when loading apps or opening pictures/messages etc.

So remember, if your HTC has a problem now or in the future you can have it fixed FAST by bringing it in to Fix My Mobile!

iphone unlocking-300x242Many of us love the Apple iPhone but many of these have been locked to a carrier network. These iPhones are usually cheaper to buy and unknowing customers can end up with a phone that will only work on one network. So what happens if you want to get a new phone plan on another network? You need to get your iPhone 'factory unlocked'. The good news is that our helpful staff can have your iPhone unlocked from it's original carrier so that you are free to join any network you choose.

We can unlock your iPhone from the following networks:
- Telstra
- Three Australia 
- Optus 
- Vodafone Australia
- Virgin Mobile Australia

It's takes us 5 business days to unlock your phone so please make sure you allow for the time we need. Please take in mind this is a permanent unlock, so after unlocking you can still upgrade your iPhone software without having the simlock back on.

Iphone Unlock Telstra $ 59
Iphone Unlock Three $ 99
Iphone Unlock Opus $ 99
Iphone Unlock Virgin $ 99

Fix My Mobile has been a leading iPhone repairer in Brisbane for some time now but what you might not know is that we also do a smashing job on iPod repairs. One of the more common problems is the iPod Touch 4th Gen's metal housing. It was never designed to be repaired by Apple and when the housing gets dented it tends to push the screen off. If this has happened to yours don't worry, we can fix the housing and replace your screen.

If your iPod Touch 2nd or 3rd gen gets a cracked screen we can have it fixed in a couple of hours. Don't forget that all work we do is covered under our 90 day warranty.

Other problems we can fix on the iPod Touch is the headphone jack and home button. Some companies just clean the headphone jack but that is only a temporary solution at best. Once the contacts start wearing down there will always be problems with the headphone jack until it is replaced. The home button can become unresponsive or stuck in some cases. If you have a broken iPod home button we can fix it. Just bring it down and it will be back to you in no time.

HTCIf you're tired of the operator branding on your HTC or having other software related problems, reflashing your HTC may give your phone a new lease of life. Fix My Mobile can upgrade the software on your HTC for as little as $49.

You have the choice of reinstalling the official carriers ROM (Telstra, Optus etc) or you can opt for a generic (WWE) version that doesn't have any carriers branding. Because we use a gold card to flash your HTC phone, which is a special type of SD card similar to what your digital camera might use, we don't need to connect your phone to a PC at all. This means even if your phone can no longer connect to your computer, we can still update its firmware. Even better, if you keep your carriers original firmware, we can upgrade your HTC Stock ROM without effecting your warranty!

When you get the software upgraded on your HTC mobile phone you can also get the native language changed at the same time. If you have important information on your phone we can even create a backup for you. As usual, we always recommend making a backup of your phone and fully charge it before you bring it to us. The whole process only takes 1-2 hours. Contact us or come and see us when you have time.

photo-1-300x224Battery replacements are an easy fix to a common problem on all electronic devices. Even the best batteries will eventually run out of juice permanently. As the iPhone 3G/3GS has no removable battery cover like some other phones, the battery needs to be replaced by an expert technician. While we are replacing your iPhone's battery we also check that there isn't underlying problems such as a faulty iPhone main board which is causing your phone's battery to drain faster than normal.

It's important to remember that just because your phone goes flat quickly, it's not always the batteries fault! We can quickly and professionally test your iPhone 3G/3GS battery and determine if it needs replacing or there are other underlying problems. This saves you money because you won't need to get your iPhone's battery replaced only to find out that it isn't even the problem! If we detect any other problems such as freezing, getting hot, cutting out, low reception we will direct you in the best course of action.

Here are some quick tips to keep your iPhone charged for longer: 
- Turn off WiFi and Bluetooth if not being used.
- Change intervals for email sync so that your iPhone is not continually checking for mail.
