I was very impressed with your company in supplying me with a new screen and fitting instructions for my Nokia 3110. I had been told that the cost would be more than a new phone. It was a simple task to fit, even by a 62 year old ex prop forward with hands like dinner plates and poor eyesight!
at £15 plus p&p where could I get a new phone for that!
On Thursday 30 January I ordered the following items-- 1 Nokia Lumia 520 touch screen/digitizer, 1 Torx 4 screwdriver, 1 Fitting instructions. The package was received on Saturday 1 February, full marks for prompt despatch and delivery. No fitting instructions were enclosed, an Email was received referring me to a set of online instructions, these covered the whole dismantling of the phone and it was necessary to carefully pick out the relevant parts for just replacing the screen. The screwdriver supplied was cheap and poor quality with no indication of actual size of the bit. It turned out to be the wrong size, probably a T5 instead of T4. this caused damage and stripped the splines of two of the screws. I had to buy a whole set of screwdrivers locally (Maplins) as they did not have the sizes singly, I also had to drill out the two damaged screws which was a very tricky job, especially with my old eyes and stubby fingers!
The new screen has done its job and the delivery was very good, however the failure to supply the correct sized item and the promised instructions cost me an extra £7.99 and a lot swearing.
I give 'formmymobile' 5 stars based on their excellent and well informed service. Nothing is too much trouble when helping customers resolve their requirements. Products are extremely well priced and delivered by the fastest possible means and they are well packed. Would I use this company ever again? I would without question and would place them above any competing organisation for anything they do. P Ashley. Warrington
I've used Formymobile several times now and I've always been successful. Their clear precise dissassebmly instructions allow anyone with a little bit of DIY flair to accomplish a repair that would cost ££££'s if carried out by a dealer.
This time I had to replace the touch screen on my Samsung GT- S5230 Toco Lite. The price for the part was extremely low and I paid more for the delivery than the part itself, but I chose this ! Sure enough, at 07.25 the following morning my package arrived and within 38 mins. my mobile was back in service good as new. Superb service overall. My grateful thanks to all at Formymobile.
Thought my mobile phone was terminal after a brush with gravity.....not so as Formymobile.co.uk came to the rescue. Easy to find a replacement screen via their website. Also easy to order and quick to dispatch. Attaboys all round.
The online guide for replacing my phone's screen says in particular: “Tools required for disassembly: Phillips screwdriver, plastic tool such as a guitar plectrum or credit card.” There is no mention of any soldering in the guide. Having not been able to use the screen on this phone I have been without a phone for a while – unable to replace it partly as a result of lack of funds from lack of work – partly caused by a lack of phone! Therefore I decided to give this site a try, having repaired several ipods and the like in the past I did not think this job to be beyond me. As I said I saw no mention of soldering being necessary in the guide or I would have thought twice, as my only expertise in soldering has been on significantly larger circuits! Therefore, after disassembling, and suddenly realizing I now needed to do some minute soldering, I struggled for some time to remove the connection between the old screen and the phone’s microphone, but succeeded in the end. Attaching it to the new screen’s board was an entirely different thing however, with my not wanting to damage the mic – it is a phone after all! – so perhaps being a bit too cautious when trying to make the connections. Anyway, having put it all back together, yes the screen now works, but I am unable to make phone calls – at least ones in which the other person can hear me! They really need to revise their online guides for they are certainly lacking and a bit of a con as a result! Very disappointed in this site - will be advising to avoid!
I stand by my opinion that my review is entirely fair! It is also backed up by the fact that you have chosen to not reply at all to my direct email - so it appears your after sales support is severely lacking also!
The screen of my Nokia 2220 developed a large black area. I was amazed to find formymobile that they supplied parts and for £5 my phone was up and running in under 5 minutes! The fitting instructions were just superb with actual pictures of where to unscrew and how to get parts off. The screen arrived within a couple of days of ordering so very efficient. I felt very good about myself that I had repaired my phone so cheaply and quickly. Would have no hesitation in recommending they are "simply the best"!
I had a question on finding the right part, forwarded an email and received a very quick precise response. Together we we found the correct part which I installed with the help of great guidance. All is good and I am up and working again! Many thanks!
I repair several different mobile makes and models every month. I'm an IT Engineer by trade, so mobile repair is something of a side line. I always buy mobile components from formymobile.co.uk because their service is exactly as described - fast, efficient and they always have the required part in stock. Their free fitting instructions are also really useful. They really do everything that it says on the tin. I have no hesitation in recommending this supplier.
I needed a replacement LCD screen for my Sony Xperia Tipo after somehow it was broken - I blame my brother. After searching through various websites including ebay, I came across this website. At first I was a bit reserved about the price as it seemed too good to be true in comparison to some ebay sites which were asking for at least double. After researching a lot into the site and looking at reviews I decided to give it a chance and buy a new screen along with the tools needed. I was not disappointed. The delivery was super quick and it was very well packaged. I was emailed fitting instructions to help to take apart my phone and fix it. The LCD screen itself was very high quality and it looks just as my original screen. I would highly recommend them to my friends and I will definitely use them again in the unfortunate event that my phone breaks again.
I got confused when ordering a new screen/digitizer for the iPhone 4 (I didn't know whether it was the 4 or the 4s). Like an idiot, before checking properly by using the 'A' number on the rear of the phone I went and ordered what I thought was the correct one. After realising my mistake, I ordered the correct one, and pondered what to do about the wrongly ordered item. I sent an email explaining what I had done wrong, and asking what could be done. As the item had not yet been despatched, I was refunded in full with no problems whatsoever! This is why I will ALWAYS use Formymobile whenever I need replacement parts! If only all online retailers where this good!
