iPhone 6 repair lineup.

Hello folks,

Our iPhone 6 repair lineup is beginning to overtake the iPhone 5 repair lineup here at Mission Repair. In fact my feeling is that in the month of June this year, we will see a shift from the 5S to the 6 as a more popular repair. Call it a hunch.

This is helping us here at Mission Repair drive down the costs and bring down our pricing. I know that there are a lot of our competitors that just hate it when we lower our prices – I know this because they email me directly at times – but this is a competitive business and when it’s time to move, it’s time to move. Half of me wants to apologize, but the other half says “good luck and try to keep up”.

Our “GOT REPAIR” price has come was down as well…if you didn’t know, we are the ONLY REPAIR COMPANY IN THE INDUSTRY with the exclusive “GOT REPAIR” program. This means that if you have your iPhone 6 screen repaired with us and if you ever break or crack it again…you never pay full price again. It’s a thank you and a testament to our loyalty to our customers all over the country. Try going to that mall kiosk and ask them how much will it be if you break your screen again after you have it repaired – in fact, you need to question whether they will even be there the next time you visit. We put it in writing, honor any repeat business, and thank you for coming to see us again. And yes, we will be around in a year. It’s been 8 years already and going strong, with more locations opening soon!

It’s one of the reasons that some many schools use our services; they repeatedly break devices like iPads, and sometimes we will see the same device in several times.

Thanks again for reading, I’ll talk to you again soon. Ryan

Apple passes Google as the heavyweight champ of brand names.

Good morning everyone,

I was reading through my typical industry news this morning and read that Apple has regained the top spot as “Most Valuable Brand” overtaking Google again.

The top ten include Apple, Google, VISA, Coca-Cola and a surprise to me at the number ten spot: Marlboro…cigarettes! I don’t know why this surprises me so much, but it did. I know that tobacco companies have a huge marketing budgets, but I personally use every brand on the list except for the cigarettes. No wonder there are some kids using tobacco so early, it’s tough not being exposed to branding every where you turn.

Well, congratulations Apple. I’ve been right there with you to the climb to the top. I personally started repairing Apple devices back in 1994 – and if you can believe it, we were actually repairing Apple Floppy Disk Drives by the thousand. You know that you’re a “vintage” guy when you know the difference between an “Auto-Inject” and “Manual-Inject” floppy drive. Oh how times have changed.

Have a great morning, I’ve got a lot of blogging to catch up on, I’ll be back soon!

Take care, Ryan
