Gloucestershire based iPod Surgery, a provider of iPod repairs, are promising to reduce the impact of the recession by offering cost effective iPhone screen repairs on iPhone 3, 3GS and iPhone 4.

Accounting for up to 70 per cent of all phone breakages, screen repairs cost UK consumers thousands of pounds each year, insists the company.

iPod Surgery, which can also assist with nano repairs claims, "When an iPhone needs its screen repairing many consumers head for the shops or worse still will attempt to carry out repairs themselves using the 'self repair' kits you can find online. The problem is the kits generally contain sub-standard fixings of parts and you can end up making the problem worse."

By visiting their extensive site and filling in a short online form detailing the fault, your shipping preferences and the level of service you require, the team at iPod Surgery will them calculate the cost of the repair for you in no time at all."

As a common fault, the iPod Surgery claims to hold hundreds of screen in stock ready for a fast turnaround.

iPod Surgery adds it has so far carried out over 30,000 successful iPod repairs. "Our experience in operating quality services is second to none. iPod Surgery has been developed to extent our expert repair services on the Apple iPod range to the UK public at very competitive prices."
