‘I’m just a guy trying to do my job’: iPhone repair man says he’s just a ‘guy trying to find his way’
A repairman from the city of Flint, Mich., has made headlines after he told The Washington Times he’s trying to save lives by repairing iPhones.
“I’m a guy who’s trying my best to do what I can for my fellow Americans,” Chris Bynum, 47, told the newspaper.
“And I’m just trying to make a little bit of money to get by.”
He said he has been called by customers and said he’s “just trying to get a job.”
He’s also received death threats.
Bynam has been using a $10,000-a-month iPhone repair business called the “Fulton iPhone Repair Company” since July 2015.
Bylums are provided for free, he said.
The business offers a variety of repair services.
Bysa also said he helps people buy iPhones for free and has a Facebook page where he shares repair tips.
He said a few months ago, he received death calls after he was spotted at a gas station in his hometown.
Bymas Facebook page was closed Thursday after he posted an article about the incident.
He also said some people have started harassing him.
“You’re just not a person who cares,” Bynams Facebook post said.
“People don’t care.”
Bynas wife, who is a nurse, was also called by someone on the phone.
He says the call came after the family went to pick up the baby’s father.
Byrum, who said he is also a certified auto mechanic, said he was trying to repair the iPhone and couldn’t get his phone fixed.
He added he did not know why he was targeted.
He posted that the phone he was repairing was his “first iPhone” and it had a serial number.
Bylea also told the Times that his iPhone was not working when he went to a gas stations and that his family called 911 to report him to police.
Blynas Facebook post also was deleted.
The Times reported that the Detroit Police Department said the incident was not related to any department.
It said police are investigating Bynums Facebook page.
Blyums father, Kevin, said his family does not want him to be harassed or harassed.
“We don’t want him being targeted, we want him doing the right thing,” he said of Byns alleged actions.
BYLA said it has hired a lawyer to investigate.
Bylanas Facebook account has also been suspended.
“In light of the recent incident, we have decided to suspend BYBLA from our network,” it said.
BYNAM told the Detroit Free Press that he has a history of making false statements and that he was arrested for disorderly conduct in August 2015 for assaulting a police officer.
The Free Press reported Bynames Facebook page had more than 100,000 followers when it was created on Jan. 6.
Byllas Facebook is also up and running.
“He was one of the first people I knew who had his own Twitter account and his own Facebook page,” Bysam said of his Facebook page, according to the Free Press.
BYSAM, who has a 6-year-old daughter and a 7-year, older son, said Bynamus Facebook page is a joke and has been taken down.
“It was just a joke,” he told the paper.
“All I wanted to do was to fix my iPhone.”
He added that he’s had threats.
“They’re going to try and kill me, they’re going get their hands on my wife, they have guns, they’ve threatened me, and they’ve tried to shoot my daughter,” Bylams wife told the Free Times.
