Treat that iPhone like a baby.

Hello friends of the electronics world,

The iPhone 6 is the phone I personally use, which translates to “The iPhone 6 is the phone I drop on a daily basis”. With that being said, I have to tell you that I’ve dropped my iPhone 6 several times and it’s HAS broken once. This is my FIRST cracked iPhone since they came out! This was a pretty gnarly corner drop too. I was certain it was finally time for me to use our iPhone 6 Glass Repair Service. I am not doing this on purpose. I really dropped this thing on accident and it usually happens when I forget that I set it in my lap when I’m driving…then get out of the vehicle. SMASH!

You'd better baby that iPhone!

I have come up with some muscle memory reactions when my iPhone slips out of my hands:

  • Foot Cushion – This seems to be my go to reaction when I drop my iPhone. I simply stick my foot out to cushion the fall. This equates to about a 2″ fall after all is said and done.
  • Quick Grab – More often than not, I am able to catch it mid-fall. This is not a great tip, but hey….
  • Jump And Dive – This is just not safe, but I find myself at times diving for my dropped phone. Yes, I have actually found myself on the floor more than once trying to prevent a crack.
  • Walk On Carpet – When interacting with my iPhone, I will often make a point to do so on carpet. I know this is ridiculous, but I have yet to crack my glass on carpet so I’m adding it to the list.
  • Cover My Eyes – I do this most of the time. Now that I think about it, I’m just a lucky guy that just happens to not drop it the right way most of the time.

But until the day comes again, I will continue with my beloved foot cushion and closed eye method which has worked for me through today.

What’s your method of saving your phone? Let me know!

Of course the bottom line is that if you should happen to crack that screen in the event that one of your acrobatic maneuvers doesn’t work, call us at Mission Repair and we’ll get you fixed up fast.

Yes, we repair a lot of iPhones, but did you know that we have the best computer technicians in the industry?

Hi there everyone,

It’s true. Our “1 pound” devices seem to really overwhelm our repair centers at every location; clearly this country needs it’s cell phones repaired.

However, we’ve been on a huge run of laptop computers lately. Maybe it’s that time of year, just before summer break hits, but we are receiving more than average numbers of Apple and PC laptops alike.

The PC laptop market is definitely one that is tougher to keep up with in terms of website relevancy…and that’s my job so I’m falling down a bit when it comes to marketing our PC Laptop repairs. I’m working on it 😉

However that doesn’t stop my customers from calling in and getting any information that they need. At each of our locations, we have PC technicians on staff to help with broken screens, hard drive upgrades, memory installations and LOTS of keyboard replacements. I don’t know what it is about the keyboard on some of these Dell units, but I should probably buy extras.

So give us a call 866-638-8402 or shoot us an email sales@missionrepair.com and we’ll do what we can to help you out. Yes, we get calls about virus removal, about every Windows laptop needs it, but it’s good to make sure that your virus removal software is up to date. Go check that now, or buy yourself an MacBook!

Take care, Ryan

it’s graduation time, and I’m not sure how I feel about it.

Good morning friends,

It’s starting to hit me that I’ve got my youngest son Casey graduating from High School, and today is his LAST DAY of school. In fact, by the time I’m done typing this blog, he’ll probably be done altogether…his last two finals were in Gym and Physics and he gets to run.

2015

Wow. All I can say is that I’m in a little bit of a depression because this is a life changing event. And I love my life the way it is! 😉

He’s got his enrollment paperwork for college, and he’s working through the summer like usual. However, he’s definitely in a different stage…and from a father’s perspective it’s a big change. I remember my last day of high school like it was yesterday.

Congratulations to all of 2015’s graduates…and I’m sure that I’ll tie this into a special here at Mission Repair in our newsletter tonight. (SIGNUP HERE!) I’ll reward all of those students and parents with a special to have that broken iPad or iMac repaired. Just give us a call at 866-638-8402.

Proud parent,

Ryan
