As Repair4MobilePhone (http://repair4mobilephone.org) celebrates its first anniversary, it also commemorates its dedication to rescuing 850 million cell phone users worldwide. The Web site today announced that it has collected more than 300 links to freely accessible cell phone repair instructions.
Werner Heuser, founder of Repair4MobilePhone, developed the Web site as a resource for cell phone users to easily make repairs and replacements without the help of a professional.
"Sometimes your cell phone will break when you're nowhere near a repair center or when you just haven't the time to wait for someone else to fix it -- that's where we come in," Heuser said. "I created Repair4MobilePhone as a loose network of information from tech geeks all around the world. While commercial repair guides are generally expensive, this form of 'shared knowledge' allows us to provide the same information for free."
Repair4MobilePhone has repair guides for more than 50 popular cell phone models. The site even details the process of building a phone from scratch.
In addition to repairing cell phones, Repair4MobilePhone offers information for a variety of other features users may question, such as how to replace batteries and accessories, inquiries about Bluetooths and cables, and the schematics of JTAG. The site's modding section links to guides that help people learn easy tricks for personalizing their phones with faceplate paint, background lighting and other creative gadgets.
The tech savvy can also use the Web site to broadcast their cell-phone repair knowledge. All visitors have the opportunity to submit their own reports directly from the home page.
Since May 2005, Repair4MobilePhone has provided cell phone users with a collection of links to take apart instructions, disassembly pictures, upgrade and repair manuals, as well as do-it-yourself (DIY) tips and tricks for cell phones. The site shows that fix-it-yourself repair projects are often easy, cool and fun, while also saving time and money. For more information, please visit http://repair4mobilephone.org.
