Finding a Company to Repair iPad 2

I'm trying to find a good company that will fix an iPad 2. My wifi adapter seems to be broken. I somehow made it fly and hit the ground hard (screen not broken at least)

 

Thanks!

There is actually a company here in my town that works on iPads, I have provided the link below.  I don't exactly what kind of work they do I don't own anything Apple but it wouldn't hurt to give them a call.  Hope this helps!

Could try it yourself with about $40 in tools from iFixIt. If the card is just unplugged that's all you'll need. If it's broken or the cable is damaged it'll be a bit more, but still cheaper than having someone else work on it. It's not too hard, either.

 

I found this out when I dropped a rock on my nearly new iPad 4...

If it is indeed the wifi antenna was unplugged, you have to go through the screen to get to it. Now that doesn't mean break it but you have to heat the sides to loosen the glue.  Good luck.

I have the part for it, and have seen videos and such, but the only thing that's making me want someone else to do it, is putting it back together.

Last I recall the Wi-Fi chip in the iPad 2 is sodered to the board. No possible way for it to be disconnected unless the chip has been destroyed.

Might be thinking of one of the newer one's.

 

Thanks all for the suggestions, I ended up selling it and got a decent price for it

    • Strange business model that they keep around all these pricing plans. 1000s of plans per carrier is reportedly not uncommon.  Training customer support must be a nightmare. Even MVNOs have legacy plans. A downside of their contract mentality I guess. Best to change contracts during a recession. But then all carriers try to squeeze out legacy plan benefits as they grow old.  
    • Everything "Uncarrier" is becoming "Carrier" again. Because of the Credit Limit that T-Mobile put on our account for no reason at all (and wouldn't change/update the last time I checked all the way up to the CEO), I don't plan on buying/upgrading our iPhones through T-Mobile. I'm going through Apple directly. Looks like I'll be going through Google and Samsung directly for our other lines for upgrades. Also, we're staying on Sprint Max given the ridiculous pricing for Go5G Plus. On Sprint Max, we currently pay for our Plan: $260 for 7 Voice Lines $25 for two Wearable Lines. (One is $10/Month. The other is $15/Month because the AutoPay discount only applies up to 8 lines.) Total: $285/Month vs. Go5G Plus (Per the Broadband Facts "nutrition label" on the T-Mobile Website): https://www.t-mobile.com/commerce/cell-phone-plans $360 - ($5 AutoPay Discount x 7 Voice Lines) = $325 The Watch Plans show as either $12/Month or $15/Month: https://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phone-plans/affordable-data-plans/smartwatches So this is about the same for the wearables as what we're paying now. Overall, it's quite more than we're paying now to switch plans. Ridiculous....
    • Welcome back! That's similar to my best (1250ish). A few people have broken 2000 on good sites. 
    • Lots of new multi-carrier nodes popping up in Bushwick. Crown Castle Fiber node at Ridgewood & Palmetto:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Irving & Jefferson:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Wilson & Noll:  
    • I’m surprised they’re running a 5x5 Band 66 carrier still. In NYC T-Mobile has 25x25 AWS and they’re running 20x20 Band 66 and 5x5 n66 (in testing). Presumably when n66 commercially launches they’ll drop Band 66 down to 15x15 and go straight for a 10x10 n66 carrier like they did with n25.
