Phone Ninja would like to thank everyone who turned up to to our Virtual Reality 4 Charity fundraising event!
30th May 2016
Over $100 donated to help sick children and Telethon7 Perth . Much appreciated!
Modular phones are now a reality with the announcement that Google’s “Project Ara” will ship late this year.
26th May 2016
By modular we mean that Google is hoping to build a phone where you can swap out parts like lego blocks. Want to slide in a more powerful speaker? Why not? Want a bigger battery? Go for it!
Sounds cool, but would you buy one?
Did you know that repairing your cellphone is better for the environment than buying a new mobile?
12th May 2016
Sadly, mobiles require 500 to 1000 unique components to be mined. Some of the components are often sourced from countries that are well known for unsafe mining, human rights issues and you guessed it, horrible environmental practises!
Just another reason to choose PhoneNinja, over buying that expensive new model!

New iPhone Around The Corner?
5th Feb 2016
The rumor mill is at it again, But some of it may be true this time. We have heard through the grapevine that apple is intending to announce a new small iPhone, similar in size to the iPhone 5s, but with features that are closer to an iPhone 6. Apple have always supported the smaller sized smart phone. Well at least until the update to the iPhone 6 and 6 plus, this has left a gap in their range. Forcing anyone that didn’t want the big size into buying old tech (iPhone 5c/5s) or a competitors phone.
So if the rumors are true it could mean fast speeds and new features, but small size. Apple will probably use a catch phrase “Big Features, Small Size” or “Small Size, Large Features” or something along that line.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Repairs – Glass Screen Only Fixes
The team at Phone Ninja have done it again, offering Galaxy S4 glass screen repairs. To be eligible your I9507 / i9505 touch & LCD must be working, and only the glass can be smashed. Of course if you have also smashed the LCD then we have the option of replacing the entire LCD screen assembly with frame. Please note however we have an extremely limited stock of Galaxy S4 screens, so get in quick!
Google LG Nexus 4 Repairs – Screen Refusing Now Available
We have added LG Nexus 4 screens to our constantly expanding list of screens we can refuse. This basically means if you have smashed your Nexus 4 E960 touch / glass screen, then we now offer you a cheaper repair.. Of course if you have destroyed the LCD (the part that displays the picture) then we can replace the entire screen assembly.
Galaxy Note & iPhone 5 Repair – Touch & Glass Refusing Now Available
The team at Phone Ninja have done it again! Not happy with just refusing Galaxy S3 & S3 4G screens we are now offering replacement touch screens for iPhone 5, and replacement glass screens for all Galaxy Notes including Note 1, Note 2, and Note 2 4G at a fraction of the cost of the full screen! So what’s all the fuss about? Well in the past these screens were considered one piece because the touch / glass is fused to the LCD panel meaning any damage to the glass or touch would mean the whole screen would need to be replaced. With the new method we can now replace just the glass in the case of Samsung screens or the touch screen in the case of the iPhone 5 saving you big. Check the relevant pages for pricing info & more details.
Galaxy S3 i9300 Repairs – Glass Replacement
We can now replace just the glass screen on your Galaxy S3 i9300 or even S3 4G i9305 all professionally repaired a new frame! This is great for those who have a working screen but have smashed the glass lens as in the past this required a whole new screen to be installed. In addition we do the job right in a dust free environment which eliminates specs and dust particles that are all too common with non-fused screens. We also replace the frame / bezel which is the part around the screen as this is often damaged by customers when the phone is dropped.
iPhone Fix Services
We fix more iPhone 3G, 3Gs, and 4G than any other mobile. Some common iPhone problems you may experience include a cracked touch screen, a broken LCD, issues with a battery, water related damage, or recovery from a software problem. On top of these fixes we also specialize in iPod repair including the iTouch, and also offer a iPad repair service making us possibly the most versatile Apple repairer in Perth West Australia.
Mobile Phone Water Damage Repair
Phone liquid damage is one of the most difficult tasks a cell phone repairer must approach. Sadly most approach liquid ingression repairs on the cheap using run of the mill isopropyl alcohol baths that do little to shift the corrosion, yet alone deal with the corroded solder points that require reflowing. With all Phone Ninja’s water ingression fixes we use a state-of-art Ultrasonic cleaner with varying grades of proprietary cleaners to match the degree of corrosion present. Please note for our water damage service we charge a $40 upfront quote fee payable cash, eftpos, credit card, or direct bank desposit. This fee is only charged on liquid ingression repairs and is put towards any repair charges.
Have Your Phone Unlocked Here
Our phone unlock service is available for those on Telstra, Optus, Vodafone, 3, AT&T, T-Mobile, Virgin, & Orange among others on a variety of mobiles including Nokia, Apple, Panasonic, HTC, Samsung, Blackberry, and of course many more. This service allows you to use a sim card on a mobile locked to another carrier. We also offer a iPhone jailbreak service which gives our customers the ability to run uncertified Apple apps as well as opening the door to unlocking Apple’s mobile. Our jailbreaking service is also available for the iPod Touch and the iPad as well.
Samsung Galaxy S4 released in Australia on April 23 with only Quad cores
Samsung are rushing the Galaxy S4 to market skimping out on the Australian i9500 version by using the quad-core 1.9 GHz Snapdragon Series 600 processor by Qualcomm rather than the octa-core (8-core) Samsung Exynos. Samsung will launch the phone on April 23rd, thankfully with 4G LTE coverage as standard.
So the question is whether it’s a good idea to grab the phone straight away or wait for the faster 8-core version? No matter what your decision as soon as the Galaxy S4 repair parts become available, Phone Ninja will be your one-stop shop for all your Galaxy S4 fixes.

iPhone 4S Unlocking coming soon to Phone Ninja – Unlock your iPhone 4s
iPhone 4S unlocks will still be available thanks the official Gevey Team. Please note in order to unlock you must keep your iPhone 4s at IOS 5.0 or IOS 5.01 so be careful not to update on iTunes.
iPhone 4 Unlock Method – GEVEY Ultra NO LONGER OFFERED
To date iPhone 4 users have been left in the dark with no options to unlock their iPhone. Our GEVEY Ultra package unlocks all iPhone 4 models to date including those who are on the previously unlockable 1.59, 2.10, 3.10.1, & 4.10.1 basebands. Put simply the Gevey is a SIM-Card holder that hardware unlocks the iPhone. The new Ultra edition supersedes the original Gevey as the Ultra no longer requires assistance everytime the iPhone drops out of coverage. As a jailbreak is also required firmwares up to 4.33 are no issue whatsoever but IOS 4.34 & 4.35 are either a tethered jailbreak, or in some cases can be rolled back to an earlier IOS for a full jailbreak.
iPhone IOS 4.34 Tethered Jailbreak Released
RedSnow 0.9.8.b3 allows Apple’s IOS 4.34 & 4.35 firmware to be jailbroken. Unfortunately at the moment the release is tethered only which means if your iPhone runs out of power you need to reboot with Redsnow. Please note an untethered jailbreakable solution for IOS 4.33 and lower is available so if you want to unlock, don’t update.
