The products arrived packaged properly and no damage at all was done to them. I was pleased to find the quality was as good as they said it would be.
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.
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!
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!
For customers like me who live abroad this was an exceptionally good deal. Easy to select and order spare parts (a Sony Ericsson C903 LCD screen), along with a straight forward free repair guide, fast delivery and value for money. Keep up the good work!
I ordered a replacement screen for my Nokia Lumia. It wasn't the cheapest online but it was advertised as a genuine part. It came within days and within 20mins of it arriving through the post it was fitted to my phone with no problems.
Fast despatch and a decent , good quality product. What more could you want?
Nokia C3, Not working properly, screen not operating and rolling all over the place. As I was due an upgrade got a new Samsung. Thought I would have a mess inside ! I found this company on the internet and found that for £6.00 I could get a new "thing a ma jig ".
or screen !!. The part came 2 days after ordering. I have only ever took the back off the phone to change the Sim card, so the inside was a mystery. Followed the instructions on the web site and now I have a perfectly working spare phone. Thank you
Ordered a replacement screen for Nokia Lumia 800. Part was a genuine Nokia replacement AMOLED screen, exactly as described and delivered in two days via the standard Royal Mail option. Easy to replace and nearly £25 cheaper than taking it to Nokia Care, where they would have charged £60. Bargain. Thanks. Will definitely use again.
I ordered an htc desire slcd screen, the transaction and all other processes were easy and efficient. All of the questions i had were answered timeously. I would recommend this company to anyone looking to buy replacement phone parts.
Bought a replacement lcd screen for a K850i. Thought it was dead with a BROD but it appears it was a faulty lcd screen after all. Replaced easy with the easy enough dissasemble instructions of the site and the phone is operatable again.
Good prices, excellent package, ok delivery times.
First purchase I've made from them but am very happy with the product. Ordered a Samsung Ace digitizer and my client is really happy with his new screen. The delivery has fast and well packaged. Thanks guys, will be definintely be coming back! Keep it up!
Everything was perfect from A-Z!
I had problems paying (new credit card) and got an e-mail from Rob asking me why I had not gone ahead with my order. The credit card pb solved, I ordered & received my LCD screen & screwdriver VERY quickly (I live in France). Packaging was perfect, the product was perfect & my (old) Nokia phone is now (almost) as good as new! Congrats!
My LCD was shaking and unreadable and pictures where unbearable to look at. I ordered a LCD for my Nokia 6303 and it worked. Instructions on line on how to replace it. No soldering or anything technical. Just dismantle and replace. Great communications also. Thanks a million. Much cheaper and more convenient than having to replace the phone. Like brand new again.
I ordered a new Nokia Lumia 60 screen and screwdriver.
Price was brilliant and much better than anywhere else I looked. The screen is perfect, easy fitting and I am back with a phone!
Contacted customer service on Tuesday after ordering the friday before the bank holiday, was e-mailed straight back and screen arrived the next day.
Would definitely recommend and use them again! Thank you :)
Ordered a screen for a flip phone. Arrived the next morning. Amazing price. Amazing that parts were available for older phones. Fitting instructions not perfect but enough to get the job done with a bit of concentration and care. Would use this company again. Next challenge will be to exchange a iPhone 4 screen.
The LCD screen for my Samsung GS600 supplied was fitted according to the instructions in the very useful series of photographs on this website,
I didn't check very carefully to see if the scren supplied had a removable protective film. There is a small blemish which doesn't show at all when the screen is illuminated. It may be that I should have removed the film, if there was one. My complaint is that I didn't see any instruction to remove any protective film, so don't know if there is a real blemish or a blemish in my brain!
That being said, my mobile works again for £10 outlay so I am pleased.
For what it's worth, it took me two hours to disassemble and two hours to reassemble, first time attempt.
The digitizer I was sent had a blemish in the LCD across several row of pixels in the centre of the screen. I told the company immediately after it arrived and sent picture as proof. I was asked to send it back as matter of course. I wished not to do this as I would need to disassemble/send back/wait for the new one to arrive and I suggested the alternative of some money back. They would owe me postage cost as well.
Bearing in mind the screen is not re-sellable at full price anyway, I could have some money back and formymobile gets rid of the low quality item they sent.
The upshot is that after my suggestion, they didn't bother to reply. So bought the next piece of kit I needed from somewhere else, that’s the cost of poor service.
Sent me a card asking me to leave +tive review in return for a discount next time out, but it just pointed me in the direction of somewhere to leave negative feedback.
Update: Robert got in touch soon after this review was posted. He felt these issues were the result of a misunderstanding. He provided what I felt was a more then suitable gesture and I’m much happier with the purchase now. I changed the star rating from 2* to 3*.
I always buy things and goods form ebay.I couldnt trust so easily other sites.But this site is really good and helpfull.I got my replies very fast and thats a very good thing.I was a bit confusing when i first bought a screen for samsung galaxy me s 55 70.As for Lcd screens you have to be very carefull.Cause there are low quality screens with low resolutions and i wanted to avoid at all costs for phone.I asked several time here at formy mobile and he told me that its original screen.I was covered i finally did my first order..One week later i got the screen to Greece(Hellas) .The screen was very good quality it had some nice colours and resolutions.Brightness contrast resolutions were OK.No cheap poor quality lcd screens!I will trust again(i allready did with Lcd Lg kp500.Good service,helpfull,excellent quality so far in the products i have test.
Dropped my 4 yr old SonyEricsson C510, broke screen. The rest of phone was working fine. Obviously, 'cos I'm stoopid, not only was I saving everything to my phone memory (and not SIM card), but I also hadn't backed up any of my contact details, photos, vids, audios, so all data was in the phone, but with screen broken, no way to get to it.
I ordered a replacement screen from formymobile.co.uk. Slight panic due to incompetent postal service taking almost a month to deliver from UK to Belgium, but formymobile kept in regular contact with me to try to help find what we thought was a lost parcel.
I followed their step-by-step disassembly instructions along with a really helpful vid on youtube:
... and I successfully replaced the screen, no problem! My phone is now working again and obviously, the first thing I'll do now is back up all my data and contact list... innit!
I have order a number of items off this company and although I had problems trying to replace my first phone screen (O2 Orbit), Robert was straight on the computer guiding me in the right direction (with a successful outcome). I ordered a second screen for my partners phone (HTC Wildfire) and out of good will, Robert sent out and made sure the part was the correct one for the phone and again managed to guide me in the right direction for a successful outcome (obviously once everything was fitted and working properly I did ensure payment was sent and I dont think I paid him enough either) - I now need to order a new battery for her phone and can be assured I will be ordering from him. I live in Northern Ireland and the parts were packaged, posted and delivered to all the correct addresses within 2 days (It has taken longer for my letters to be delivered locally) An all round fantastic service.
