I am really interested in technology and was just wondering if teenagers could work in mobile phone repair or do you need any training for that?

Let's look at TechRublic for a teardown of a phone.

So it's true that some phones do lend themselves to repair but that's not where the real skills are needed. Working with the customers takes either a person with real people skills or if they don't have them, training. The client is already upset when they arrive and you must not make it worse.

Since you'll have to be conversant with repair and company policies as well, I don't see how you can avoid training.
