The little button at the top of my iPod (the sleep/wake)stopped working about a month ago. So I could only use the menu button and then I had to wait for the ipod to sleep itself in order for the screen to go black.
A friend told me about this fellow in Peterborough who she found online that fixed iPods, iPhones and iPads. She bought a iPhone online that was a second and had a screen that was so dark, she could hardly read it. She took it to this guy and he had it as good as new in just a couple of hours. I emailed him late on Wednesday to ask if I could drop it off on Thursday as I had some other appointments in Peterborough. He said to come at 11:30am. I got there about half an hour early (I forgot to bring his phone number with me) and he was very pleasant and said to come back in 40 minutes. I came back about an hour an a half later, and my ipod was all fixed and it cost me $40.
Don’t be put off by the fact that it is out of his home, he does good work and I would rather have gone there than had to deal with Apple (and do we even have an Apple store in Peterborough?)
