I have good experiences with them, sorry to hear what happened, I'd probably feel the same way if that happened to me.

Try sending it to a regular repair shop, costs a little more. I'm guessing you have no LG authorised repair shops nearby?

Just as an example my cousin in India gave his Nokia N73 to a Nokia repair shop because it got white screen and no charge. Store claimed water damage and said cost would be high (wanted to replace motherboard). We went to another Nokia shop and he repaired it quickly saying it was just a software problem.

DONATE TO ME
I wiped EFS on accident awhile back and sent my phone into LG repair hoping it wouldn't cost a lot. Turns out I have a bad "power board" and they fixed it and sent me my device back for free. It sucks that your situation was different. I wonder what really happened when they were at the warehouse/repair center.

Same situation here... except that I do not have a spare smartphone. They said "board bent" wtf!?!?!? I never dropped it or dared to open it, how would you open a 1 piece phone? They lied, or else it was a defect. I wiped EFS by mistake so I can't even use it. What should I ask them to have it warrantied again?

Board bent? Isn't that a FEATURE of the LG Flex? Geeze. I sent mine g2 in to repair the vibrate motor and got it back fixed no problem. Sorry that your experience was bad...

I would get a second opinion at a phone repair shop, some give free estimates. If cant be fix sell it for parts and get some money, just a thought. Seen ur other thread, did you TOT the device to see if that helps, i have TOT several times to fix my fkups lol
