Friendly and great service. I made the mistake of having Buzztime change out the battery instead of me having Apple diagnose the problem first. Buzztime $129 for third party battery. Apple $115 for Apple battery. Kicking myself. So be sure before hand.

I’ve had my phone repaired a couple of times with Buzztime (new battery and phone screen) and the staff are always polite and do such a good job and really quick. Within half each each tie. No complaints here. Would recommend them to anyone. Also competitive in price.
