Meet Your Neighbor: Pat from iDope in Northern Liberties

patfromidopeDid you pick up a new iPhone 5s or 5c and already find yourself in need of a quick repair? Or are you trying to eke out another year from your iPhone 5? We've got the place, or rather, the man for you if you're looking for a Northern Liberties business that repairs iPhones.

That would be Pat at the iDope store in Liberties Walk, who saved our cracked phone screen and replaced it within 5 minutes.  And all we had to do was cross the street.

Thanks iDope and thank you Pat! We'll see you again soon, although not too soon for the sake of our phone's health, we hope. Check out iDope's site for more info.
