Allan’s Repair Bar in Laurel, Maryland claims to be able to fix your phone quickly and cheaply, but that turned out to be a lie. Your phone comes out with more problems than it went in with, and their guaranty is a scam because they may be contracted to fix your screen but on most phones they would have to go through layers of other components to get to your screen.
So these geniuses wrecked my HTC M9. They fixed the screen perfect but a few days later, the sim card stopped working.
I immediately called Allan at the Repair Bar and asked about the guaranty/warranty and they said they couldnt take a look at it without charging me an extra $60.
I decided not to take it back to them because I felt strongly they were at fault and took it down to Gadget Guru in Columbia and those guys identified the problem and said there was a broken clip that was damaged during the previous repair (only had one repair before that and it was with Repair Bar).
Gadget Guru is charging me $120 to fix the sim card slot issue. This is on top of the $150 I spent at Allan’s Repair Bar to fix the screen.
I called Allan at Repair Bar with this new information and he said I could bring it in and they would take a look but couldn’t guaranty they would fix the problem. Very uninspiring.
I asked him to pay 60% of the cost of repair at Gadget Guru if they fixed it and he stopped answering his phone or responding to messages.
DO NOT GO NEAR THIS BUSINESS WITH A 10 FOOT POLE. ITS VERY SIMILAR TO A 419 SCAM THEY’RE RUNNING HERE!
