X and XR phones can now get lower cost LCD screens

Thanks to availability of LCD screens for the X and XR, I can now get new screens for $75-95 (+tax and labor). X and XR screen repairs can now be much more affordable. New aftermarket OLED screens are also available. Refurbished OLED original (OEM) screens are also available at a premium price point. Brand new OLED OEM screens for the X/XR/XS series phones will not be available.

Coming soon... Functional* replacement home buttons for iPhone 7/7+/8/8+ phones! Some phones get smashed in the home-button area of the screen, resulting in a physically damaged home button. Previous replacement buttons for the 7 and 8 series phones were for cosmetic function only. Now I can get functional* replacement home buttons, which restores home/return, long-press, slide-up, and double-tap functions to the button. *With exception of secure-id.

Reviews

I had put up my 'reviews' page, where customers could post comments, only to take it down again. Once a review was posted, it was hard to read due to the page theme. The rating system was subscription-based if I wanted advanced features, such as custom themes/colors, etc. I was ok with that, but when their site messed up the new subscription process, I gave up. I will add a ratings page when I get the issues sorted.

Some mild re-designs to the layout of the website are underway. Things may get weird for a while.

I am around today, and can work on devices. However, I am in the middle of replacing the starter motor in my car. I will be available later in the day, but will be dedicated to car repair until noon at the least.

Testing a re-design of the logo. I think I prefer it without the giant C :)
Some re-arranging today. The right-column is now the left column, and the page width has been narrowed to 900 pixels. This should accommodate more mobile devices when displaying this page.
I have removed direct email links on my contacts page and on the main page as well. Looking at traffic stats, there was a sudden jump in traffic since the domain was repaired. In the last day alone, this page received half of the total traffic that it did all of last last month. This would be good news except for the fact that all of that new traffic is from China. I need to avoid as much spamming and scamming of my service requests as is possible. So, alas, the direct links to email me have been changed to plain text with no at symbol.

If anyone is still having trouble reaching this web page with a particular web browser, they should clear the browsing history of that browser. Then this page should load properly.
Apparently, the way that my web domain linked to my Blogger website was using an old configuration. I missed any notices which would have alerted me to this. It should be fixed now, and hopefully the page will be back up soon.
