My iPhone 5 Is No Longer Broken…And No Longer Mine!

Hello M:R Nation –

Earlier last week I wrote about my broken iPhone 5 and the dismal state it was in. Luckily, my iPhone 5 was still warranty and I was able to request service from Apple for the issues. I had mentioned in that post that I would talk about my experience and so here I go.

After receiving the box from Apple, I was faced with quite a conundrum… what am I going to use for a phone while I am waiting? Well, I ignored the question until about 4:45pm, because at 5:00pm Fedex would be knocking on the door to pick up all of our daily packages. I was in a panic and did what any respectable man would do in this situation… beg his boss to borrow his old iPhone 3GS for a few days.

Picture Perfect!

Picture Perfect!

With the 3GS in hand, I wrapped up my iPhone 5, packaged it in the provided box and sent it away. All was well, but I had to get creative with my sim card situation. I had a nano sim card. This would not fit in the large sim slot of the iPhone 3GS. I had to take a large sim card, trace the nano sim pattern onto it and cut that section out. From there, I fit in the nano sim and SUCCESS! I was back in the game of digital life.

I have to tell you, I understand that the iPhone 3GS in not that old, but going back to it really made me miss my iPhone 5. It has made me think twice before complaining about the battery life…which I do on a daily basis.

So I pained though the slow processing power and horrible resolution of the iPhone 3GS ( which is only that way because I am used to the 5) for about two days until a package was delivered to me from Apple. What I received was no shock. Apple had completely replaced my phone. It was scratch-less, glowing and beautiful, but just not MY phone. Being in the business that I’m in, I have come to learn that there is a certain sentimental value that personal devices brings and I just experienced it first hand. I remember every drop, every scratch and every picture taken with that phone and I kind of miss it.

Overall, I am happy with my in warranty service experience. It was kind of hard to get it started, but once I was able to order the box, it went off without a hitch. As you can see in the above photo, the iPhone 5 takes perfect pictures and life is good once again! If I ever have an in warranty issue, Apple is the place to take it. If its out of warranty Mission Repair is the only choice :-)!

P.S. The battery life is still horrible on this replacement.

Cheers, Troy

Price Drop: Ram Of All Shapes And Size!

Good Morning M:R Nation –

We have some price drops to talk about today. We don’t see this to often with RAM, but alas, here it is. A mega price drop that is sure to please. We have slashed each service by about $50.00!

What is “RAM” exactly? Well, it is an acronym that stands for Random-access memory which is a form of computer data storage. A random-access device allows stored data to be accessed in very nearly the same amount of time for any storage location, so data can be accessed quickly in any random order.

If you find your computer running a little sluggish, a good place to start is the RAM. The more applications you use at once, the more your ram is pressed. Our Apple Certified Repair Technicians will always use the correct spec in your device and split up the ram between all available slots to create a smooth running machine.

Below you can view the different Apple specified RAM services that we offer. We can go above 8GB if you computer is compatible, so if you feel you need more than 8GB, give us a call at 866-638-8402 and we can help you find out your maximum RAM capacity.

We also have the ability to replace RAM an any PC as well. Please be on the look for those services to be added, but in the mean time, give us a call if thats something you need.

Eight Gigabyte (8gb) Unibody MacBook Memory (8500) Memory Service

Four Gigabyte (4gb) Unibody MacBook, MacBook Pro & Mini (8500) Memory Service

Four Gigabyte (4gb) MacBook & MacBook Pro (5300) Memory Service

Two Gigabyte (2gb) MacBook, MacBook Pro & Mini (5300) Memory Service

I hope all is well and the Holiday hangover is not too bad. We only have one more Holiday to get through and we are clear for another year:-)

Cheers, Troy

As you can see, some of these blokes really put on the scraggle for the occasion. David (Left Bloke) decided to go with the stash on the last day and might I say, it fits him well? He looks a little Walter White-ish.

So now that you have seen the runner ups. I would like to introduce the winner! With a nearly epic growth, I would like to announce Phil Esau as the winner of this years Mission:Repair No Shave November!

Our good friend, Phil has been with Mission Repair for years now and we think his ability to grow a beard might be a cover up for a super power of some sort. So if you talk to Phil over the next few days, make sure you congratulate him on this stellar victory! Phil is now a proud subscriber to www.dollarshaveclub.com and I can’t wait till he gets his first shipment in and I’m sure his wife feels the same way 🙂

Speaking of Phil, did you know he is one of our great Apple Certified and C++ computer technicians? Yep, that is what he does around here and he is one of the best. So if you find yourself in need of a Glossy 13″ MacBook Air LCD Screen Repair or a Glossy 11″ MacBook Air LCD Screen Repair , he is one of the gents that will be getting the job done! So with Phil at the helm, you can PHIL confident (Get it?) that your computer is in good hands and will be repaired properly!

Cheers, Troy

Reliable MacBook Screen Repair at Mission Repair!

Hello all – we’ve been so busy working on our iPhone promotions and iPhone Protect Me™ Plans, I don’t get a chance to talk much about our full line of Apple MacBook repairs. We’ve pioneered a way for end users to receive high-quality MacBook, MacBook Pro and even Unibody MacBook Repairs from any location in the US at unbeatable prices.

For example- if you take your trusty Black or White 13″ MacBook to an Apple Store or an Apple Service Provider (which charges Apple’s repair rates) you’ll find that the screen replacement will cost you about $700.

MacBook Screen Replacement

No, this is not a hybrid Zebra MacBook!

Not here at Mission Repair. In the same example, we only charge $189. Yes, we use the SAME make and model replacement screen that Apple and Apple Service Providers use. However, we also install it within 24 hours upon receipt and it is installed by an Apple Certified Technician. How do we have such a remarkable price? Our business is setup and designed for service. We are not in the market to sell you a replacement computer. We are in the business to keep your computer alive!

So next time you need an Apple Laptop Repair, give us a call first. I promise you’ll be thrilled!

To wrap up this blog post, I’m offering $20 off our phenomenally low 13″ Black or White MacBook Screen Repair to bring the total price down to $169 for the glossy version or $189 for the matte version, installed with a 1 year warranty. Yeah, you like it, it’s OK to admit it 😉 Just use coupon code “macbooklcd” when checking out online or when you call in to get this fantastic deal! This coupon expires on June 15th, 2010.

Thanks again for all of our loyal readers, you make the world go ’round.

Ryan
