    all kind of/any kind of

    Hi teachers.
    'All kind of mobile phones are repaired.'
    'Any kind of mobile phones are repaired.'

    I want to know if there is any difference between those two sentences in meaning.

    Thanks.

    All kinds of mobile phones are repaired.
    Any kind of mobile phone is repaired.

    These are slightly unusual sentences. They would only work if they were the sign in the window of a mobile phone repair shop. I would expect the word "here" to be added to the end in that case. Also, if it were a sign, they probably wouldn't bother with the verb.

    All makes of mobile repaired [here].
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes I am talking about a sign board. "All makes of mobiles repaired" is totally new to me and I have never seen it in any sign board of phone shops. Perhaps it could be seen only in UK. What does "makes" exactly refer to? Does it mean "kinds"?

    Yes — or 'brands' or 'types'.
