    Has anyone used iHospital or visited one of their locations? I'm seeing a lot of great reviews on Google Places and on Yelp... Guess it would be cool to see something from someone here before I let them work on my iPad.

    It's the first I've heard of them. Not sure if I trust their reviews.

    Have you tried the Apple Store? What are they looking to charge you for the repair?

    Cost is not really the issue. What I love is that without an appointment I can show up and have them replace the battery on my iPad 2 and not have to wait. I hate going to mac stores because with an appointment I still have to wait.

    If your iPad 2 has battery issues, that should be under warranty. I'm sure that having them do any kind of work, voids that warranty.

    Why pay for a repair that you can have done for free, with zero risks involved. The Genius bar appointments do require some waiting time, but it's usually no longer than 15-20 minutes, based upon my experience.

    What a bizarre coincidence.

    Why wouldn't you trust their reviews? I heard really good stuff about them on the news, on the radio, and even saw them in the NY Post recently! They really helped my family when our MacBook hard drive crashed. They were able to recover all of my data when the Apple store wouldn't do even though I have Apple Care. I really recommend checking them out Justin! LINK REMOVED BY ADMIN

    Nope no coincidence. I've interacted with them via Social Media and loved their responses and wanted to see if anyone here knew of them or had worked with them.

    Chris,
    Looks like you just busted these guys. They are known as "the Kings" of fake reviews from their family and friends here in Tampa. Karma.

    You guys are right on about the iHospital. Do NOT use them. The "corporate" store in Tampa has had my son's ipod for ONE month. They broke it beyond repair while replacing the cracked screen. They have promised me every day that they are going to replace it. Still waiting. It has been the single worst experience of my life. Who exactly is in charge?

    I don't care if it was 5 years ago... Still funny and I only noticed the thread because it was brought back to life before my post and I don't generally waste my time looking at the date and times of posts...

    Thank you for taking the time to quote me though... :rolleyes:
