New Mobile Site = launched!

Countdown…5-4-3-2-1 and we have liftoff!

We just launched our newest version of our mobile site today and I have to say, it turned out great!

Mission Repair

Now on MissionRepair.com we have updated, innovated, and invigorated our mobile site (that’s the website that you see from your mobile phone) to be easier to use. In fact, we have a complete solution for browsing prices and even checking out on your hand-held device that is easier than ever before.

What brought on this change?

During our website analysis we noticed over 10,000 visitors a month that use a smartphone to view our website were dropping off after the first page. Why were a lot of you doing that? I already know…it’s because our mobile landing page was pretty bad (I admit it) and we have now solved the problem. A special thanks Melanie in the graphics department, she pushed me to make the change happen quickly!

So, if you’re reading this blog on a smartphone (like I know a lot of you do), all you need to do now is click this link to see what’s new in the Mission Repair mobile world. It’s refreshing. If you’re not on a mobile device, then you’ll be presented with the same awesome webpage that you’ve come to know and love.

Have a great weekend everyone – I’ll be working tomorrow to catch up on a few loose ends here at the office so if you need me you know where I’ll be.

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 ūüėČ

    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.

    Snowmageddon part 2, but we are open!

    Hello everyone, it’s been an incredible 7 days with our winter’s worth of snow packing into 2 large storms.

    Last week, winter storm “Q” really unleashed a pile of snow on the Kansas City and Midwest area that crippled us for a day. Then last night, winter storm “Rocky” was predicted to drop another 15″ of snow, but frankly, it was a huge letdown in that case. In fact, we are open today and rolling out repairs so our customers can get back in business as soon as possible! In fact, we’ve already received walk-in customers today, so it’s been a busy morning at Mission Repair so far!

    However, Fedex has warned us that we will not have a normal pickup that afternoon, but we can still drop off packages to the station. . .which we will do. Risky you might ask? Not when I’m going to drive the Mission Repair M35a2 full of packages to the FedEx hub!

    With a license plate "NVRSTUK" we will make it to drop off those packages!

    With a license plate “NVRSTUK” we will make it to drop off those packages!

    OK, so taking the Deuce out was for just a little bit of fun ūüėČ

    We are unleashing our own storm here at Mission Repair and adding a ton of new services as we speak. We will back at the blogging here today, and watch the presswire for other announcements. Stay tuned, and stay warm!

    Take care, Ryan

    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!
