The iPhone lives

In travelling on April 11, 2010 at 8:18 pm

Just got the iPhone back healthy and working after a couple of days when the home button stopped working, first it would work intermittently, then you’d have to push it several times to get it to do anything, then it just stopped doing anything.

Read up on t’internet that it may have been dust and dirt clogging up the connection, so bought some compressed air and squeezed and squeezed and let it huff and puff, in and around the home button, but to no avail.

Went to Sydney apple store where it was going to cost me $249, wept at the total and utter vertical integration of the apple sales model, whereby they would have just given me a reconditioned ones, so I would have had none of my info and a  phone which was clean or not as someone else would have been doping all sorts of incomprehensible stuff to it. How is that a repair?

I then remembered I’d passed a reseller down by the university, maybe they did cheaper repairs, they didn’t but they knew someone who did. Five or six doors down, a hundred bucks and an hour or so later and iPhone is back in the groove and I can record my thoughts of Sydney and the rest of my travels for you to enjoy, or skim read and enjoy the pictures.
