  2. Are you able to get the sensor touch thing fixed on an ipod touch. my screen was recently cracked and i had a friend of mines fixed it but that was a bad idea cause my ipod dosent work properly now. like if i touch an app it dosent open. only certain areas on my ipod is able to touch n sometimes work. if you can repair this problem . how much will it cost??

    1. Hi Masaki,
      Thanks for inquiring about your 2G. Unfortunately we don’t do repairs for the 2G. We specialize on the 3G. I can refer you to someone who does repair the 2G and does a good job. Give us a call at 224-2712 and I’ll provide that information for you. Thanks again for contacting Tech Armor.

  3. I have two blackberries. One has a bad touchpad and trackball. The other has a loose connection for the charger. Could you use one to repair the other (I also have a new trackball I made ATT give me though they would not repair)? Would it cost much more to use new parts?

    1. Hello Vickie,
      We can definitely repair the trackball. We can take a look at the loose charging port. The issue usually with the charging ports is that they need to be welded on. When you come in we can take a look at the phones and you can decide which one you want to keep and which one you want to salvage parts from. If the parts are in good condition its fine to use them instead of new ones but if you have new parts might as well use them. Let us know if you have any further questions and thanks for inquiring with us. We look forward to repairing your Blackberries. Mahalo.

  4. Matan at Tech armor at ala Moana was very friendly and helpful, he hooked my phone up! I had soo many problems before and had been to other iPhone repair shops to try and fix them, but still the problems kept returning after a few days or weeks. He took my phone apart and fixed all the things other repair shops never looked at and now it works perfectly! I am so happy my iPhone doesn’t give me any more stress and will come back to Tech Armor next time I need help with my phone!

  5. Very fast efficient dude! Water damaged!!! didnt charge me for diagnosis!!! went through all the pieces of my phone and asesed what could be salvaged. Thanks alot man!!!!

  6. I came in to get a clear cover for my blackberry. Matan was very helpful, and he put the clear cover on my entire blackberry, which was a very complicated process. He also fixed my tracking ball, and now it works super smoothly! And he did a jailbreak on my ipod, and now I can download all the apps and songs I want for free! Great service! I would come back for all my blackberry and ipod needs!

  8. Great customer service. unlocked the iphone quick and easy. i would definitely reccommend him to my friends

  9. I’ve got iPod Touch 16GB that doesn’t work. It cannot turn on, it doesn’t reset and it doesn’t work with it plugged into a charger. I know the chargers are okay cause they still charge my other iPods. Do you have any suggestions? I’ve looked in the headphone jack and I can’t see any pink or red markings for the moisture indicator…can you help?

  10. Hello! I was just wondering if you sold iPhone 3GS’s? If so, how much would they be new and used? Thank you so much! I love this store

  11. Hi. I have a blackberry 8330 and its a brand new phone. The screen is cracked. How much would it be to repair the screen? The phone works perfectly fine, i just cant stand that the screen as already cracked considering i just got it. Can you please let me know your prices and if you are able to fix it. And i also would like to know the estimated amount of time that it would take to repair.

    thanks Much.

    1. Alex,
      Unfortunately we are not carrying any unlocked iPhone 4 at the present moment. Unlocked iPhone 4 are not commonly sold at this moment. Please check back again in the future. Thanks!

  12. I have a 16GB iPhone 3G and the music on the iPhone only plays when I have headphones plugged in. If they aren’t plugged in the iPhone says the music is playing but no sound is coming out. It plays the ringtones and everything except text tones, and locking sounds. What gives? I tried messing with the sound settings and I don’t know what to do.. HELP!!!!

    1. Ron,
      you might have to restore the iPhone, worst case scenario but you can bring it in and we can try a couple of different software tricks. It might also be the flex ribbon which controls the connection between the headphones and the speaker. You can reach us at 955-7470 and we’ll give you a free quote.

  13. How many speakers do the iPhone 3G’s have? Because if they have two I believe one of them is busted how much does it cost to replace it? Thanks!

  14. Hi, I was wondering about how much it would cost for you guys to replace an iPhone 3GS back housing. I would be supplying the housing parts myself btw.

    1. Paul,

      1. Thanks for your ultra-fast reply. I was also wondering if you guys sell chrome back housing for the 16gb iPhone 3GS with all original apple printing, and how much that would add to the price if I were to use your parts instead of supplying my own?

  15. I was waiting for your response about the 4.0.1 jailbreak/unlock and when I went to upgrade my iPhone to 4.0.1 the new 4.0.2 came out and now I can’t straight upgrade to 4.0.1. Is there anyway to upgrade to 4.0.1? Or am I S.O.L.?

    1. Ron,

Either way solutions to come up shortly for each OS update. I am confident we fill have a solution in the near future, we’ll keep you posted

    1. DEE,
      Unfortunately we don’t work on the 2G. It’s still a great phone but the cost of parts and difficulty working on them has made us decide not to repair them. Thanks you for inquiring.

  23. How much does it cost to put a protective screen cover that protects from scraches from all kinds of stuff like i see in the video everytime i walk by the kiosk?
    For the new ipod touch with cameras?
    and if i do buy it, does it void the warrenty?
    and will there be no air bubbles at all when you guys put it on?

    1. Hi Vince,

After 30 days the product comes with a lifetime warranty on the phone that it was purchased for and if we install a new one we only charge you a $5.99 installation fee.

  29. Hello there Tech Armor Hawaii, how are you?

    I came across your website and I thought I would ask couple of questions and compare. I recently traded my old phone with an Apple iPhone 3GS 16GB and it works just fine but with few problems that I didn’t bother to think about. I thought I would ask how much does it cost to repair the following:
    1. The back scratched/cracked cover
    2. Microphone isn’t working well and the caller cannot hear me
    3. The volume up & down button is missing
    4. Vibrator doesn’t work at all I think and lastly…
    5. The screen, I would like to replace that

    Please let me know and I cannot wait to hear from you, Mahalo and have a good day.


    1. Marjerie,
      We can fix it and since you’ll need multiple repairs we’ll give you a good deal. Give us a call at 955-7470. A new housing runs $99 includes all new buttons, battery and speaker, charging port, microphone. We can put a new glass and digitizer normally it’s $85 but we’ll do it for $50. So you’re looking at around $150.

      1. $150? So that means you already have all the repairs for the phone right? Hmm, I’m sorry just wondering what if I already have the new stuff (new housing, new buttons, charging port, vibrator, glass digitizer, etc.) and just wanted a professional help? How much would that cost? If you guys don’t do that I understand, just thought I’d ask though. Please let me know, and I cannot wait for your reply, thanks.

      2. Marjerie,
        Bring your parts down and we’ll take a look at what you have. There are various quality parts particularly with
        The housing. If we can use your parts we’ll only charge you for the labor about $50 bucks. If we can’t use your parts we’ll let you know and you can decide what you want to do. Thanks

    1. John,
      We still repair the iPod touch 1st gen, but not the headphone jack. The reason is because the new part has to be welded and is a very tedious process. We do fix the glass, LCD, charging port, power button & volume. Thanks for inquiring and sorry we couldn’t give you the answer you were looking for.

  30. Hi, Can you guys unlock a prepaid phone I brought back from Japan? It’s a Samsung 740 SC. If you can, how much would it cost? Thanks

    1. Darrick,
      I would recommend that you back up your data and bring it back tomorrow when Matan works. He might have to restore it after he checks the connections. We’ll definitely take a look at it.
