    Hey all,

    My iPod has a broken screen. I purchased all the parts that are needed. I can't open up my backplate. I've tried so hard that the battery port portion of the plate is all bent up.

    I'm looking to have someone do the repair for me. All the parts (screen, digitizer, and backplate will be available). Any suggestion? Or takers?

    I've even ordered two sets of plastic openings. All of them are destroyed. Not sure what I'm doing wrong. All of the youtube videos show people doing it with ease...

    Need help!!!

    Thanks!

    Thanks, but I've tried that. I also used Craigslist.

    If anyone has any prior experiences, that be great.

    I just called around for some quotes. They are pretty darn expensive. This one shop was willing to open up the back for me for $25. Pretty steep if its just to open up the back.

    Is there a ProWireless in NYC? I have one in my area in North Carolina and they fix ipod / iphone really cheap.

    Out of warranty and broken screens are not covered. I might as well buy a new iPod if I'm repairing it at Apple.
