Is it baseball season already?

Hello there!

I’ve been out of the office for a few days on some personal R&R, and am just now getting back into the swing of these here at my home office.  Yes, I’ll get a chance to sneak in and get some repairs done this evening (yes, even the boss still does a few repairs from time to time) but for now I’m going to get some much needed writing done because so many of you have been asking!

Firstly, how did you enjoy the Super Bowl?  I’m sure that most Bronco fans thought it was spectacular; but I’ve heard from many “non-Bronco” fans that the Super Bowl was “terrible” or “Our team would have won if they were in it” or “Peyton Manning didn’t do anything”.

Well, the fact of the matter is that Denver stepped up as a team and did what they intended to do:  Win on Sunday.  So those that didn’t enjoy the game can just start to look forward to baseball season, right?

If you live in Kansas City and if you like baseball, then you must be gearing up for the 2016 season.  Coming off of the World Series makes things seem bit brighter for them this year.  The defending champs are ready to go (so I hear).

Well, even though the groundhog predicted an early Spring, if you step outside today here in my home town of Spring Hill, Kansas it’s only in the high-twenties Fahrenheit…it’s not time to grab your baseball glove and hit the practice fields yet.  We have a few months to go.

So what should we do this Sunday?  There’s no football on, so it looks like I’ll be caching up on some TV.  What a life.

I’ll be back soon with some Mission Repair info…Ryan

Now that’s what a cracked iPad looks like.

Good morning,

Every now and again I’ll snap a picture of a device that we receive for repair and share it here on the blog.  Some are normal “cracks” and bends; others are smashed up pretty good.  For some reason, my blog readers love looking at smashed units…so Carl at my Mission, Kansas store sent this picture to me last night:

IMG_3162.jpg

Now that’s what a cracked iPad is supposed to look like, right?

I often wonder how these things happen…obviously this unit was dropped…but the exact story gets lost in the repair sometimes.  This unit appears to have been “dragged” along the concrete, like it fell off the roof of a car or slid down the driveway.  Most of the time, it doesn’t matter to us “how” it happened, but knowing sometimes satisfies the curiosity!

Have a cracked iPad Screen?  No problem.  We will take care of that repair for you, just drive on down to one of our locations (no appointment necessary) or give us a call and we’ll send FedEx to pick it up from your location anywhere in the USA.  Yes, even where you live, wherever that may be.

Apple 1:1 School Repair Program at Mission Repair

Hello there friends,

We’ve got a lot to talk about as we have made some simple changes in our Apple One to One School Repair program – if you didn’t already know, we offer repairs to schools around the country to assist in their efforts to maintain student devices.

Not only is this something that we have been doing for over 8 years (even before the One to One Program was released) and we’re happy to report that we are providing services for even some “Apple-Distinguished Schools” as time has progressed.

Why?  It’s a matter of economics.  There are scenarios that Mission Repair is a far better fit for some school districts than AppleCare.  Apple has done a good job of selling units and service programs, but they don’t do something that Mission Repair does, and that’s offer a better price on a service for a unit that has already been repaired once before.

It’s called our Got Repair program, and it’s the shining light that schools are looking for.

The best part about it is that even if you use our services as an “end user”, you get the Got Repair benefit automatically on our screen repairs.  Just check it out on our site, and you may know why Mission Repair stands above the rest.

Take care, Ryan

Have that family tablet repaired in time for Christmas!

Hi there everyone, Santa may be filling his sleigh with amazing presents for you, but maybe there’s something that Santa can’t deliver – but Mission Repair can!

Every year we have thousands of customers send in their devices for repair each December, and a lot of them are scrambling to get their devices repaired as Christmas presents! That’s right, this is a present that you can’t get in stores, and you can’t get from Santa (he doesn’t have any elves that repair electronics!) but you can get from Mission Repair.

iPad repairs are a huge selling service here at Mission Repair and we have parts in stock and incredible prices. We won’t bring it to you in a sleigh, it’ll arrive via FedEx or you can just stop by one of our locations! If you get your orders in now, there’s plenty of time to get it back before the Christmas holiday so don’t delay!

Happy Holidays, Ryan

What kind of tablet did you need repaired?

Good afternoon,

We just got a call from a customer asking if we fixed ASUS tablets…and the fact is that we do! Mission Repair offers the most complete line of tablet repairs– more than anywhere else you’ll find on the Internet.

Screen Shot 2015-12-02 at 8.04.00 PM.png

Don’t see a tablet on our list?  It’s OK, give us a call!  We are adding new services constantly, and maybe we just haven’t quite gotten your device on our list yet.

We service thousands of tablet screens for schools across the country, and many Apple One to One Schools enjoy the expedited services we offer here at Mission Repair.

Thanks for reading, don’t live with that cracked screen for too long!

Talk to you later, Ryan

Why use Mission Repair when I can go to the repair guys down the street?

Hello there,

We do get calls every day and have heard many times before:

“Why should I use Mission Repair when I can go to the repair shop that just opened down the street from my house?”

It’s true, it appears that this business we’re in is getting pretty popular. Apparently everyone wants to get in on the industry, but I can confirm that it’s not easy to do. Repairing these delicate devices, offering a warranty, advertising, hiring, and running a location (multiple in our case!) takes a lot of effort and know-how. Let me give you an example…

We received an iPad Air in for glass screen repair…very typical for Mission Repair, so it was received, bar-coded and sent to a technician:

IMG_2703

This repair started off like any other until we opened it up, and it was immediately apparent that someone else had already *tried* to perform the repair. We called the customer to confirm this, and he should have chosen Mission Repair in the first place.

Upon opening the device, we immediately discovered that the glass was SUPERGLUED down. This is a huge no-no. Super Glue outgasses and melts plastic and rubber. Is there plastic and rubber inside of an iPad? You bet. Not to mention it cakes up and makes rework a bear:

IMG_2705

Once we got the screen lifted up, this company even left the protective plastic cover that MUST be peeled off before it’s installed. It was still on there!

IMG_2704

That’s Ok, the screen was wrecked anyway, so we can fix that for sure. Then as we took the screen off, there was a gold pin broken and missing on the digitizer connector which would explain why the customer was having issues with the “touch” function. It’s hard to see, but we’re pointing to it here with a pointed tool:

IMG_2706

So add all of these up and now the customer needs a logic board repair, and new glass panel and a little bit of extra labor to clean (as best we can) the Super Glue from around the frame so that the new glass will sit level.

This was a perfect unit for me to write about, but I feel terrible for this customer and he said that “I had it repaired locally and been having problems with it since it was repaired”. If you’re going to go with one of the new guys they can’t all be bad…

But you can expect that a repair company that doesn’t have 8 years worth of repairs is going to have some learning curves. You just don’t want them learning on your device!!

Stick with the experts; stop by one of our locations or simply give us a call because we service every address in the USA via our mail-in program that is the best in the country. Questions? 844-459-0105.

Thanks, have a great day. Ryan
