11,000 Facebook likes and climbing!

Hello friends.

This is my first breath of the day – it’s a rocking Monday here at the Mission Repair headquarters. I thought this would be the calm before the shopping “storm” that’s headed our way on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Ready – set – get your wallets out because the holiday shopping season is here!

So we’ve been fairly active on Facebook lately and just cracked 11,000 likes this morning. This is great news because the word is spreading fast and more and more people are talking about Mission Repair. I mean, we’re not Apple (that has almost 1 million likes I might add) but we are fans of Apple, and the Apple service specialists. You might even call us Apple geniuses but I wouldn’t want to take that title from the employees that work at the Apple Stores…we’ll let them have it 😉

Is this exciting news for you? Well, maybe not as exciting as it is to me, but it is a reminder to like us on Facebook so you can get the latest specials and posts that just might be of interest to you. It might even save you some righteous bucks on your next iPad repair.

I know for a fact that if you take a cracked iPad to the Genius Bar at Apple, you’ll be spending a heck of a lot more than if you brought it to Mission Repair – and we service the entire country.

Who’s the genius now?

Have a good afternoon, Ryan

On a personal note, Casey and I did a little camping last weekend!

Hi again everyone –  I have a lot of business to talk about today, but I wanted to break it up with a little personal blog so I don’t go “Smartphone” crazy 😉

Last weekend, my son and I went to Southern Missouri Off-Road Ranch in Seymour, Missouri and spent 4 days camping and 4-wheeling. Since Casey is now 16, I gave him the opportunity to get behind the wheel (which he inevitably took over for the entire first day) as I showed him the ropes on the different trails that have been established there.

In fact, SMORR is a 1,000 acre park with excellent amenities, trails and even a cafe if you want fresh and hot biscuits and gravy in the morning if you’re too tired to cook for yourself! Casey and I disciplined ourselves to eat what we brought – oatmeal. MMMMMMMMMM yum 🙂

There are many levels of trails, and we were able to tackle some of the most difficult ones in our Land Cruiser, and had a ton of fun doing it. I took over some of the more technical parts of the trail, like this short video shows…I mean I really did want to keep most of the paint on our truck!

Casey was my cameraman in this video and he did the narrating. My buddy Marty was the spotter and together we made several runs each day with success! I wish I had more videos…but the memories with my son are still there.

OK well, that’s enough “fun” for one day. I’m back at it and you’ll see some more interesting posts for my crew at Mission Repair today.

Take care, Ryan

Do you have a Facebook page? You’d better in this day and age!

Hi there again folks, I just talked to some friends that asked “do you have a Facebook page for Mission Repair?” Let me help if there are any “would be” fans out there that need to know!

Click this picture to log in and become a fan!

Well, yes we do and we currently are nearing 7,000 fans and growing every day. Our page is being run and kept current by one of the best in the business, Melanie, that works across the room from me. We are always looking for new content, offers and specials to post to our Mission Repair Facebook page and of course we are looking for new people to like us on Facebook too. In fact, Melanie is giving our Facebook Store a new look that should be uploaded soon…

So the answer is yes, of course. We are prominent on Facebook and we wish you’d check us out there too because there are often special, coupons and great deals that can only be had by our Facebook friends so it’s worth the “like”.

Take care, Ryan

iPad glass repair special blowout. Want to see something that will shock you?

Hello folks,

We are in the middle of a serious “price slashing” at Mission Repair. We just procured a huge quantity of iPad glass for the Original iPad, the iPad 2, the New iPad (iPad 3) and the iPad with Retina display…and we’re passing the savings onto you.

For example, we are now repairing the original iPad with cracked glass (FULL SERVICE!) for just $129 installed! That parts, labor, warranty and the Mission Repair TRIPLE CHECK guarantee.

This is the LOWEST price on the Internet. Just so you know, some of our competition will see this price drop and then try to match us – but it’s just not that easy when it comes to duplicating the value that each customer receives from Mission Repair. We know that price plays a big role in the decision making process when choosing a repair center, but when you use Mission Repair, you’ll also get (at no additional charge):

  • 24 hour turnaround. However in most cases, it’ll be repaired and shipped back the same day it’s received.
  • 1 year manufacturers warranty on the part and labor.
  • Our exclusive GOT REPAIR benefit, that means if you ever crack or damage your glass again, just call us and we will fix it again under our amazing program!
  • FREE shipping back to your doorstep. This isn’t just “toss it in the mail” shipping either. It’s FedEx shipping that insured and will also require a signature upon arrival so your repaired device isn’t going to get lost or stolen!
  • Triple check Quality Control. Your device will be pre-tested before repair, repaired and tested, then tested for Quality Assurance before being sent back to you. That’s our TRIPLE CHECK guarantee that it’ll be sent out repaired and repaired correctly!
  • Don’t forget that Mission Repair has been awarded the Top Ten Reviews GOLD AWARD and AWARD for EXCELLENCE as the best iPhone repair website on the Internet. We are in the business of repair and we are here to take care of our customers. We are excited about this deal and happy to bring you the best pricing and value for your money on the Internet. It brings a smile to my face, and that’s a good thing. I want to bring a smile to yours as well 😉

    Also, if you’d like us to send you a box to pickup your iPad, that’s not a problem! Check out a quick movie about our packaging here:

    Have a great Thursday afternoon everyone. Let us know if you have any questions – customer service representatives are standing by! 866-638-8402.

    Hello there from Kansas City, we are about to get the storm of the year. Plus a coupon inside!

    Hello everyone,

    We are preparing for the worst. Starting tomorrow evening, the weather forecast calls for blizzard conditions and a lot of snow- between 5 and 15 inches around the Kansas City area. I think that we here at Mission Repair will be on the lower end of the snowfall, but it still makes for a heck of a commute and a mess on the streets.

    We haven’t had much snow lately, in fact, I rode my motorcycle on Sunday, because it was about 60 degrees out. Today on the other hand, it’s going to be a high of 35 degrees and my feet are actually cold as I sit here at my desk. I think I’ll wear my wool socks tomorrow and Thursday!

    Don't venture out to get your phone or computer repaired Thursday - just call us and we'll have it picked up from you!

    Don’t venture out to get your iPhone repaired Thursday – just call us and we’ll have it picked up from you!

    Never fear- Mission Repair will be open for business as usual, but I would anticipate that our walk-in traffic will be lighter than normal tomorrow afternoon and Thursday. If you’re in need of an iPhone or iPad repair, never fear, we will still take care of you.

    In fact, I encourage you to NOT drive in the impending mess. Please let us have your device picked up from your location, even if you’re in the Kansas City area, and leave the driving to FedEx. They will take care of things while the snow is falling. We do charge a small fee for this service, but I’ll also introduce a coupon that will offset the costs as much as possible.

    Just use coupon code “blizzard” now until Sunday evening (that’s February 19 – February 24, 2013) when you checkout online and you’ll receive 15% off of your entire order, even on shipping. This way, if you’re in the path of the storm, you can stay put and relax. We’ll handle your repair while you’re snuggling by the fire!

    If you not in the path of the blizzard, that’s OK; you can use the coupon too.

    Have a great week!!

    iPad 2 VS The New iPad(3) VS iPad With Retina Display(4)

    Hello M:R Nation –

    I think there might be some confusion among folks over the differences are between the different iPad models. So allow me to shed some light on some of the subtle and not so subtle differences.

    Form the outside, you are not going to be able to notice much, if any differences at first glance. All 3 devices are 9.50″ x 7.31″ x 0.37″, all have a 9.7″ display and all sport a facetime and rear camera, but a great way to tell the difference between an iPad 2 and the others is the Siri function. All newer generation iOS devices have Siri.

    Now to tell the difference between the The New iPad and iPad With Retina Display is very simple, just look at the bottom of the iPad. You will see  The New iPad  has the old 30 pin connector and the iPad With Retina Display sports the great new “Lightning” connector which looks like this:

    iPad with Retina Display

    Those are just some industry tips that we use here daily to identify what you are sending to us. While most folks get it right, we do have the occasional customer that orders the wrong service. Hopefully this can serve as a guide for those of you that are not quite sure. Moving forward, lets talk about the inside of these great devices.

    This is where it can get complicated, so I won’t go too in depth. The iPad 2 had a lot less in common with it’s two successors when it comes to the internals. Take the glass/digitizer for an example. The iPad 2 has a completely different connector than the The New iPad and the iPad With Retina Display which share the same cable (Shown in the picture below).

    In fact, the LCD is the same on the two successors as well. Now, we don’t usually disclose this type of information, but I want to make one thing clear, The New iPad and the iPad with Retina display use the SAME screen. So PLEASE, don’t fall for the marketing tricks of other companies and pay more for the iPad with Retina display, It is exactly the same and it should cost the same as The New iPad repair!

    For further internal information, check out this comparison chart. It really shows some key differences and similarities between the 3 models.

    As you can see, looks can be deceiving. While these 3 models look identical, they are for the most part different and different for the better. This is what Apple is known for. Taking something great and slightly improving it for the better.

    Lastly, I want to shed some light on the biggest thing these 3 iPads have fiercely in common. Mission:Repair services all of them! We do the leg work on finding the differences and sourcing those different parts so you don’t have to deal with it:-)!

    From screens to headphone jacks and everything in between, we are you one stop shop for iPad repair. I hope this post has helped you to identify what iPad you own. Even if it is not broken, it’s still good to just know. If it is broken, I hope find some of the links below helpful. Just click and enjoy!
