To the repairer, he is smart and the customer is paying him for the knowledge, but to the customer, this is cheating. It's all about perspective.
I used to have this egbon panel beater whom I patronised to fix my car then when I first started driving. I noticed on 2 occasions after taking my car to the car wash that the back door wouldn't open from inside.
I took the car to him twice and he'd asked me to drop the car whilst he fixed it. Of course, I paid. On the 3rd occasion, another mechanic was there and he showed me that it was the child lock that the car wash guys were tampering with.
E pain me die and I felt so stupid. I never patronised that guy again. Was that small subterfuge worth it?

Baba, there is always going to be a level of dishonesty when it comes to business and making money.

Pple will get furious and won't mind paying you NOTHING if they get to know you actually fix their stuff with just a click or little effort.
That's the reality bro.

You think people will buy iphone if everyone knows how to build and assemble that thing?
We paying for knowledge.

Telling the person to go and come back later to finish the work on your table before doing his doesn't seem dishonest to me even though it is just a click.

Tell someone point blank I'll charge you 5k for this and this what I'll collect last, if he wants you to handle it, good if not, he should take it elsewhere not someone swindling the client telling him you need to buy this or that knowing that it is all lies.

When I discovered I only needed to put the heat of a soldering iron close to the charging port of my phone to fix the charging port shaking, I was mad with the engineer who charges me on the premise of changing the port against fixing it.

If you tell me for a shaky charging port I'll pay 2k and nothing less I will understand and not hold a grudge if I discover you don't even do much on the phone than telling me you changed something and you didn't.

[quote author=ConnectPhones post=108791843]That talk back na money. I charge 500 or 1k to remove it depending on the personality.
But I will connect the phone to my laptop as if I'm using laptop to remove it.
Just press two buttons on your Android phone together to remove it.
I once charged a lady 3k to remove talk back from IPhone 5 around 2015. Just trippple tap the home button, that's all, but I connected the iPhone to my system for like one hour before giving her.

Correct gee...you know the scopes...exactly what I do..just connect it to the system to make the whole thing look more serious.after like 30mins or 1hour you unplug it and give it back to the customers..cause if you just plug it and remove it immediately,or you do it manually without connecting it to the laptop and give it back to the customer immediately..the customer will feel cheated cause he will feel you dnt do much to charge him that amount...common sense.

Same people will blame Dangote for selling cement higher. I don't know what 2k can buy in Nigeria now, nevertheless, the repairer should have charged the man something fair, then teach the man how to do it next time. Where I live, thats the way they do things.

Nigeria will be better when the people are ready.

A lot of Nigeria are terrible human beings but they still believe they are not the problems. A lot of fraudsters here.

I know a lot more than but I am into programming.

If you ask me to repair something for you and I realized that thing is simple to repair, what we usually do is to ask you for your price and if you can't, we give a fair price and show you what we did.

This terrible Nigerians learned from the knowledge others are sharing but they can't share with their fellow Nigerians.

Who is the wicked person here? The Niggas and negro motherf*ckers commenting in this thread that this is business. Bunch of illiterates with no ethics and morals.

Bad things happen because good people say nothing.

Dem never chook you knife for eye abi? Don't try that shit in Lagos. The man was in his shop which he pays outrageous rent for, his customer comes visiting. It's not as if you are working with him unto colleague levels o.

You came for your own problem to be solved which could equally be minor but you're willing to pay to have it fixed.

In lay man's terms, mind your business. Like someone mentioned, knowledge is power coupled with Buharis effect, prices of goods have skyrocketed.

A shoe I used to buy #2500 just 6 years ago is now #4500 with abeg o.

Anyone earning #100 000 monthly is still poor or at best struggling.

#2000 will fetch you just 1 square meal with drink in a decent restaurant. Be guided.

Re: Phone Engineers Will Not Make Heaven Walai by bitbillionaire: 9:51am On Dec 25, 2021
Showing the customer how to fix 'minor' issues by themselves is a matter of personal discretion on the part of the engineer. It has nothing to do with being 'straightforward' or not.

Remember, the phone engineer we are talking about here was honest enough to admit what could be wrong with the phone.

In life there are certain things that are at our personal discretion to do, or not to do them: it's okay if we do them. But if we don't do them we have not committed any offence or crime. What point am I trying to make here? It would have been fantastic if the engineer had showed the customer how to adjust the phone setting by himself in case of next time. But the engineer didn't commit any offence for not showing him!


Bizibi:
what the hell is wrong with some of you, this is what an engineer did for me 15 years ago,if it is a minor problem he tells me what to do to adjust the settings on the phone, It is a minor issue. Haaa some Nigerians....

That particular engineer benefitted alot from me then.... some of you don't know what it means to be straight forward in business.

Later found out that the price was 1,500# I was not mad nor pained at least it lasted and I was satisfied.

I learnt that many people don't have your best interest at heart, everybody just wants to scam everybody. No be so life be na

He did no wrong. While the client might be busy partying, the engineer was busy reading up and searching for more knowledge. He has just converted the knowledge he painstakingly acquired into cash. These days, what you know rather than the size of what you can do is what brings value

Every time I had to fix my phones, I tend to end up with a different issue aside the one it had initially.

The last one got calibrator issues, like it wasn't responding to touch again, took it to a repair, he told me some stories about separating the screen and all, then vandalized it such that I had to pay for both, within 1 month, the screen started going blank at intervals, took it back, he opened it, pressed one or two things, it still persisted.

Took it somewhere else, they said it is panel, those ones charged 10k for a panel without warranty.

I calmly left them, entered another shop in the complex and bought a new phone.

I remember when i was using Siemens phone, i mistakingly switched off the screen and keyboard light. Throughout that day, i didn't get myself, i thought the LED light had cut. I took it to an engineer, he asked me to pay 5k which I begged him to collect 3k, he agreed, he asked me to come and collect it after three days, when I went to his shop, he asked for additional money which was 3k because the LED light was too expensive. In a nutshell, i collected my phone and money. To my amusement, when i was pressing the phone, under setting i saw display (backlight and screen light). I pressed it immediately the screen light and keyboard light switched on.

This is the meaning of knowledge is power my friend. The repairer didn't sin or do anything wrong. Don't forget this info must be in the manual of the phone but the man didn't read it. The 2k is even cheap. A free knowledge you refuse to learn may cost you millions when you desperately needed it

Hello there gentlemen,

I was using my Samsung Galaxy Tab A two days ago when the battery hit zero and it went off. Due to the urgency of the task at hand, I hooked it up to its adapter and turned it back to continue.
Sadly the phone froze soon after it reached the homescreen and went off. It has refused to come on ever since.

Please what could be the fault?
I ask in the hope that one of you won't mind giving out some free advice in the spirit of Xmas. I need it so i don't get bilked when i go to computer village to fix it after this festive period

Psoul:
One NTA director who usually comes to my office became my friend. One day, he came to me with his laptop telling me that it has screen problem.

He took it to a repairer. The guy charged him 12k to fix the screen. Me begged the guy to collect 5k but the guy refused. He told the guy that he will come back.

He came to me, showed me the laptop and narrated to me his talk with the repairer. I took the laptop and told him to go and come back later that I can fix it for him.
Do you know the problem of the laptop. Like the man mistakenly changed the background theme and lines appeared behind the screen which looked liked cracked screen. ���

I just changed the theme. When he came back I have him the laptop. He asked for how much to pay, I asked him how much can he afford. He said 5k when he gave me the money, I collected 2k and gave him 3k back. He asked why, I told him that what I did was not even up to 2k. He was so happy. Since that day, the man will just be dashing me money from time to time.

I did something similar to one top oga b4, when I was called for the job, I figured it was just a cable that was connected wrongly, so I just fixed it & showed him what was wrong. And said it was on the house.....long story short, d man secured a govt job for my cousin freely smiley
