    Default Would you charge a friend to fix their iphone?

    So would you charge them for the time it took? Even if it took all day? And if so how much?
    I'm talking iPhone 5.

    That's what friends are for. The time it took is irrelevant. Like if you help them move etc it takes all day, you wouldn't stop after a certain amount of time and then ask for money to continue helping lol.

    It would be nice to receive a small gift or a bottle of wine though as a thank you (that's what I would do in return) but I certainly would never ask or expect it.

    Nope. It wouldn't cross my mind.

    If it was a friend fixing my iPhone, I'd buy them a bottle of wine or a carton to say thank you.

    The only way I find it acceptable to charge a friend (apart from parts) is that if you are doing it as a business, for example you run a mobile/computer repair business, and you are doing it in business time. Like as a dentist checking your teeth or a hairdresser cutting your hair, then I think "mates rates" would apply.

    I would be very careful helping a friend out cos if they are not happy with the end result you cannot complain because friendship is then fractured.

    If I had a business fixing phones I would charge them but give them a discount. I can't stand friends who take advantage of other friends. If I didn't have a business I wouldn't fix their phone as I would probably f@rk it up ..
