They face only one downfall - they are very susceptible to breaking. On average 4.5 million iPhone 3G and 3GS's glass screens break every year. In the past the only options were to take the phone to Apple ($200 to repair), take it to a big repair shop ($80 to repair) or do a mail in repair service and be without a phone for 3-5 days.

With a little self discipline and by devoting a couple hours per day you can start making money by fixing iPhones within a week. There are three key things you need to run a successful iPhone repair business. 1. The ability to do the repairs quickly and correctly 2. An efficient marketing strategy to bring in customers 3. Quality replacement parts Repairs Learning the most common repair, a cracked screen, takes 3-4 hours. You can get a general idea for how the repair process works by watching one of the available videos on YouTube. However, you must be careful because many of them leave out important steps in hope that you will break it and send it in to be repaired by the company that produced the video. When learning the repairs it is really helpful to buy a used or broken phone that you can practice taking apart and become familiar with the process before you are dealing with a paying customers phone. Marketing Once you are comfortable with the repair process you need to start marketing your new business. If possible the best first customers are friends or acquaintances that you know because they will understand if you take a long time to do the repair or encounter a problem. The next step is to start marketing around your local area. There are dozens of ways that this can be done for free. There is absolutely no need to spend money on anything else other than business cards and flyers. One way for example is to put up flyers with pull tabs on pin boards in grocery stores, day cares, car washes and restaurants around your city. Another free option is to post advertisements on websites like Craigslist and Kijiji. Parts Finding a source to supply you with quality replacement parts is essential. In China there are factories that make knock off iPhone parts and surprisingly many distributors in the US pass these off as Apple parts.
