My daughter pulled my iPhone off the sofa last week, and although it fell on the carpet it magically shattered the screen. I was in a bit of a panic, until I heard about iSmash, literally a few minutes down the road from my house.

I was greeted by a team of young energetic characters who took a quick look at the phone, said they could do it within 50 minutes, and then proceeded to ask me if I wanted any super duper extras, like a pink tinted glass screen, or coloured back.

It felt like a techies heaven, where pretty much any phone, iPad or accessory can be brought back to life within the hour. When I went to collect my phone, they handed it back fully charged and looking like new.

I love this company and cant wait to see more of them dotted around the city.
