  • Minitor 3/4 repair needed

    We have several min3 and 4 pagers we need to get repaired.

    How have you used and how was the service?

    thanks

    The best way for us to repair them, was to stop using them. They cost a lot to buy and repair. We have switched to alpha pagers. What a difference and it cost less.

      We used our local shop that sold them to us. If it's not a simple repair like re-casing, or changing out a knob or two, it gets sent out.

      Contact whoever they were purchased from.

        Toss them in the trash and buy Minitor V's...It'll save on repair bills from fixing the SAME THING over and over again on the III/IV's

          Well, we are not letting them go.
          Our dept has not had the issue most have had with the 3 and 4's.

          I need 3 new cases, reprogram with new channel and just an overall tune up.

          The shop we bought them from is no longer there.

          Thanks anyway

              bjlffire I think you are from NE Mo. if I remember right. We have used A&W Communications at Eolia Mo. and had great luck with them.

                bjlffire -

                Call Midland Telecomm @ 1-888-669-1931. Ask for Jim.

                They are the best service that I have found. He will fix what he can, and what he can't, he will send to Motorola directly, and handle all of the billing and communication between them for you.

                  A&W was on my call list.
                  They replace cases anything else get sent to Big M.

                  Sounds like the way to go.

                  THANKS

                    We just used P&W. I can give you the rates for some of there stuff if you want to compare. PM me and I can send you a copy of our last invoice to compare pricing.

                    Thanks,

                      I wouldn't look at this as a plus or a minus, really...

                      Motorola requires (or so I'm told) its service providers to send units back for a variety of issues nowdays. For some issues they don't actually repair, they just swap out for other remanufactured (or new) units and remanufacture the returned unit later for another swap. It's cheaper and faster than the old one-at-a-time bench repair method.

                        The majority of the the time Motorola will swap out the guts, in all of the pagers that have been sent in this year from us this is what happens, and it is always about $114.00, may be cheaper for Motorola, but not for us.

                          We used p&w for years. Most of the time the flat rate repair covers what was wrong. Quick turn around too, for us on the east at least.

                            Umm. It isn't that simple and it probably won't cost less.
                            Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.
