Repair Community Horror Stories
Has a customer’s device ever been stolen from your shop? Have you ever spent hours working on a device only to find the device is beyond repair? We wish the best for all our customers and hope nothing like this ever happens to you, but everyone seems to have a repair “horror story” of their own. Oftentimes sharing stories of defeat can help members of the Repair Community learn from the mistakes of others while at the same time building a stronger sense of camaraderie.
So we asked the Repair Community: What’s the worst experience you’ve had since starting your repair shop? The responses are better worse than we even expected!

We here at Unconsumption are big fans of the idea of repairing / mending things you already own; so, naturally we love this New York Times post on “Making Our Smartphones Last Longer”:

Despite their small size, smartphones are expensive, resource-hungry goods, and they deserve a better life cycle than two years of use followed by an eternity in a forgotten desk drawer. It is possible to buy smartphones with an eye to longevity — a strategy that will save money and global resources and give you the snooty self-satisfaction of knowing you’re shunning gadget consumerism.
The main points are: Use your phone for more than two years, ideally three; when you run into trouble, try to repair, not replace it; and when you’re done with it, trade it in. When you’re looking for a new phone, don’t just consider the latest high-end devices; many people will find last year’s best phone just as useful as the newest one. You might even consider buying a used phone instead of a new one.
Sound complicated? It’s not.
