During the Xmas break I was rather stupidly changed tracks on iPOD 160GB classic whilst on a cross-trainer at the gym. Unfortunately, the pod took a tumble was never the same again – it kept on ticking loudly like clock, and wouldn’t sync. Clearly, the disk was shafted – that’s a technical term!
So I took it to my local apple reseller who told me that as it was out of its 1 year warranty (my warranty wasn’t reset the last time this happened – it might add by no fault of my own) – it was classed as unworthy of repair. I did look into repairing it myself – but all the online guides on how to do this were for very old iPODs. So I decided not to take the risk and get it repaired by a 3rd party in the UK.
I selected – http://www.ukipodrepairs.co.uk/
I would have to say it was a very simple, easy and quick process – the turn around on the fix was very quick and I was very impressed by the work done. I won’t be making the same mistake twice. It turns out the new gym equipment has USB slot which will take thumbstick with MP3′s on it. I’ll be taking it instead of my iPOD in future!
The cute thing about the repair – is the company leaves a little song on your ipod all about its repair. It’s in the style of X-Factor ballad – a long the lines of the “Winner’s Song”. It made me and Carmel laugh anyway.
