    Question Cell phone repair course's

    Hi folk, how you all doing, My screenames is Shack's, My name is Mark, I live in Cumbria, The Lake District in United Kingdom.
    Now the thing is I had a works accident nearly 5 years ago, and it's due to be settled for damages in September this year, part of the settlement is money for retraining into a new career & all tools needed in this career.
    So what I am looking for is the best course around for repairing cell phones in America, or elsewhere in the world. So what I am asking for is information on repair courses please, if anyone can help I would be very pleased.
    Thank you everyone & and you and yours take care.

    Currently I work within the lower ranks of the engineering dept. with my company. A career in this industry is more of a learned business than a taught trade. My case in point, it is really hard to find a school that will teach wireless telco classes on campus, although there are a TON of online courses out there. Heres where I've been, and I suggest this path to anyone pursuing these careers.

    I first cut my teeth in wireless as a Tower Climber. It was a low paying, hardworking job. I'll repeat, the pay was dirt, and it was hard as . Climbing to 345 Feet to replace a bulb, and then do some paint work in the 98 Degree Sunfor 9 Bux an hour is rough. I did thoroughly enjoy it though, the views are incredible from that height. Especially when your doing tower work for the forestry service in some of our nations federal parks. In short, I got good experience in this job. Site construction and maintenance. Rack installation. Coax, wave-guide, panel, panel mount, dish installation. Co-Location assistance, and I met some very interesting people. LIKE YOU, I wanted to get on the technical side of the industry, so I started bugging the cell site tech's that I saw every day. All of them told me to find a job repairing hand-sets, and start from there.

    Phone repair, contrary to popular belief is a "mostly" low paying job, usually at the very bottom of the totem pole with most wireless companies. One day I spied an ad in the paper for "Service Technician" with a small local company. With a modest background in almost any repair industry, and some minor electronics knowledge, you would be set to go for a job like this. However, HOWEVER, keep in mind that alot of companies dont even do repair work anymore. Most wireless companies are simply packing up the bad handsets and shipping them back to the manufacturers where the handsets are either repaired or recycled. If you would like to repair handsets for the manufacturer directly, you better go get an A.S. Degree in Electronics at the minimum. And I hope you like factory work, because thats pretty much what it's like. Factory shops are large facilities, like Nokia Repair in Melbourne, FL. It's basically production line. Thousands of broken phones in every day, thousands of fixed phones back out, day in, day out.

    Anyways, like I said, I scored a repair job with a small carrier where we did in-house repair, on the spot for customer. Component level trouble shooting with an O-Scope, testing with IFR equipment and the like. We also did hands-free kit installation on site for the customers. In the 2 years I spent at that place, I learned everything I needed to know through hands-on training. It does however help to be very mechanically inclined, and at least know how to use a soldering iron BEFORE you get there. I saw lots of guys come and go, but you can be sure of this, they (any company still doing in-house repair) will hire just about anyone with any level of skill. Most in-house tactics can be taught on the job. So keep your eye out for a local gig, that's your best bet. Then, while your working, you can goto a local community college and get an A.S. in Electronics, or Land-line Telco Degree. This further education will be vital if you wish to excel in the wireless industry, at least on the technical side. Most often, anything further education needed will be company provided. My company often sends us to Nortel, Lucent, and WLS E-911 training sessions, among others.

    After 2 years installing and repairing handsets, I put in for a promotion to our engineering dept. where I currently work as a Surveillance Tech. I am responsible for monitoring and logging failures of 2 Nortel DMS100 switches, 180+ cell sites, 2 MVP voice-mail systems, 2 Data networks, 180+ miles of fiber line, and many other things. We pull alot of reports and do alot of remote trouble-shooting as well as calling out field personnel when necessary. If you want to work in this environment as a Switch Tech or Engineer, I highly suggest taking some courses for UNIX, or familiarizing yourself with Linux and Sun Solaris/SunOS. Network admin training would serve you well. My ultimate goal is to get into Field RF Engineering, and being out in the field instead of trapped behind this desk.
    So my classes at the college consist of mainly digital controls and land line training so that I can learn about T1/PCM Theory as well as other things.

    I hope I've helped you, and would be glad to answer more questions. There are a multitude of ways into this industry, and the sky is the limit. If you stay in it long enough, a well paying career is only ONE of the benefits.

    C'ya!

    Here's my 2 cents,

    I got my start in a two-way radio shop as an installer. Then after about a month I moved into the shop and started repairing mobile and portable radios and pagers. This is a great way to get some hands on experience with component level repair and electronic theory ans principles.

    I would suggest a start in the 2-way field as we are starting to see some CDMA technology spewing over into Land Mobile Radio as well.

    Either way, it's worth it to just get your feet in the door anywhere to gain some knowledge and experience. Owning your own tools and test equipment (ie: Service Monitor, Site Master, etc) as I do. This is a big investment though, that I had to do over several years.

    I've registered for cellphone course at Cellbizz International based in the Philippines. I've opted for the DVD training since I am based in South Africa. I've paid and am still waiting for a month now for the product. I'll be extremely dissappointed if it turns out to be fake. Really wanted to learn about cellphone technology. If anyone else has experienced the same, let me know. Maybe its just me and the parcel has gone missing. Otherwise I'll keep send emails to Mr Cruz till he hopefully replies back with some answers.

    Really disappointed with Cellbiz and Ronaldo Cruz. All their web sites now have either disappeared or don't work. I think it was a scam all along and I've now lost out. Luckily I have some friends based in Manila.

    Watch out for CellurDr---they are a bad company with which to do business. They do not have money back guarantee on anything including their own mistakes. Worse, the low-level technician who answers phone is a fibber and will not let you talk to the owners.
    Do not send them any work or buy anything from them as they do not tell the truth.

    I agree 1000% that a ham license training course would be a great free start. I also suggest that; rather than a narrow focus on cell phone repair in a short course, the earnest student would look at a good correspondence course from Online Distance Learning - Cleveland Institute of Electronics.Tuition can be paid over time and at very low interest- this is a great on line school. My wife is has taken courses from them and I think their materials are super comprehensive.

    Hi Gadgets Crusader,
    I'm extremely sorry that I only saw your reply now. If I had seen it last year I would have asked you then for your help. All I wanted to find out if Cellbiz was a recognized cellphone training company and if in fact that 'Ronaldo Cruz' does in fact exist. Their web sites are very convincing and I guess I was conned into believing that it actually existed, and that is why I paid for a course and have not heard from them since, except for excuses for 3 months and now silence.

    Depressing as it is, I have learned not to trust any companies advertising training on the internet and will pass on my experience to all about Cellbiz and Ronaldo Cruz. Hopefully it will spread around the world and Cellbiz will be stopped. If you do get a chance to investigate Cellbiz on the internet and Ronaldo Cruz, then maybe you can also let the world out there know what a con artist he is.

    I am sorry to hear that you got con'd out of your money. All internet offers of training are not scams. If they sound to good to be true than usually they are just that. Why trust someone with your hard earned money when they have nothing to back it up? Home_-_Cell Phone Repair Franchise is as legit as they come, with over 16 locations! Future members of WA please do not get con'd by posers in the industry.

    Very nice catch, unfortantely like most PRETENDERS they willl not respond. However, you probably have saved at least one member from losing out on their money.

    Those numbers are based in the Philippines. If you read my earlier messages, you will find out that Cellbiz or whoever they claim to be will gladly take your money upfront and not reply. So, unless you are able to go to the Philippines to attend their courses (if they have such a course), stay away from them.
