What is an iPhone digitizer?

I know that there are a ton of question about the “digitizer” on your iPhone, or any other touch-screen smartphone these days. We here at Mission Repair are experts and very familiar with iPhone digitizers, glass, and screens. We repair them by the thousands every month. Let’s see if we can demonstrate what the digitizer is here under a glass panel:

This is the digitizer on an iPhone!

The digitizer is fused UNDER the glass cover. It’s the electronic component that senses the touch of a human finger through the glass, and is designed to allow the unit to be controlled by a fingertip. This is the “input” of the device and it’s very thin and transparent.

The point is that you cannot replace the digitizer alone. Since it’s part of the glass, in the event of a touch failure it needs to be replaced with the glass and vice versa. So if you have a cracked iPhone glass, you’re going to get a new digitizer as well. If you have an iPhone that doesn’t respond to touch, you’ll also get a new glass. It’s just the way it’s designed.

You might see these assemblies marketed as:

  • iPhone glass
  • iPhone digitizer
  • iPhone touch screen
  • iPhone glass screen
  • iPhone screen
  • iPhone touch panel

For all intents and purposes, these terms are all interchangeable and are all the same thing. Are you in need of one of these parts? Here’s a list of glass/digitizer repairs that we sell here at Mission Repair:

Don’t forget our wide selection of iPad Glass Repair options!

Remember, you might see these glass panels for sale cheap – be sure to inquire about the required digitizer that is fused to the glass from the factory – without it, the glass is useless. You cannot replace the glass or “remove” your good digitizer and reinstall it onto your iPhone without advanced equipment and lots of training. It just doesn’t work! These assemblies are built together and must stay together. I hope this information helps!

One Last Hurrah?!?

Hello M:R Nation –

We are quickly approaching 2014 and there is absolutely no stopping it. It has been a great year for Mission Repair and we only have our customers to thank! We have some of the most loyal customers that no doubt help spread our brand! You are the reason that we are here and the reason we started this in the first place!

While I would love to take this post and stroll down memory lane with you, I can’t, we still have 6 days left in the year and I want to make some awesome new memories before we start reflecting on the year past!

What kind of memories? How about the best kind? The kind in which you save some money on your much needed repair service! At this time every year, Ryan runs around the building yelling “Q4 people, Q4”, trying to spark everyone to sell as much as they can. This is very understandable as we are in this business to sell a service and make money. However, it is never fun to over extend your welcome with a potential customer! Mission Repair never tries to over sell or or pressure you into using us… We prefer bribing you with huge savings!

It’s Almost Over!

Yeah, this might not make us very good sales people, but at least you don’t hate us, right? Ok, so back to that bribe! I am creating a special coupon code for 20% off your entire order that is only going to last until December 31st, 2013! This is my response to Ryan yelling Q4 all day! You want some sales, you got some sales :-)!

All you need to to to obtain this HUGE savings is email coupons@missionrepair.com and we will respond with the code! It is that easy! So come on, it’s time to finally have that iPhone repaired and start the New year off right!

Cheers, Troy

 

 

Spooky Tid-Bit!!

techtidbit_halloween

Technological Geniuses!

That is what I like to call myself anyways! This weeks Tech Tid-Bit is going to be a little different than last weeks. I wanted to have a little bit of fun since I am all in the Halloween spirit here at Mission Repair.  I always look forward to this time of year. Getting to see all the new creations people construct for their costumes just blows my mind sometimes! So to keep this weeks blog entry somewhat about Technology and somewhat about Halloween I went searching for some cool costume ideas. I stumbled upon one of the most ingenious ideas yet. Welcome the real life pulsing flesh wound!!

 

131017174817-1-iwound-horizontal-gallery

I found out that the man who created this idea was once a NASA employee. I actually downloaded the application that he created off the App Store and I am planning on using one of his awesome real life images! Now back to the technology part. You can simply use your iPhone, Android, or iPad. All you do is cut a whole in your shirt to display the image you want to use. He does offer some pretty cool accessories to go with this App as well. I may just have to check those out! If you plan on using your own accessories there is a chance for costume failure and that iPhone, iPad, or Android device may just slip out and hit the ground. Good thing you won’t have to worry about getting it fixed! Give us a call! We will get you taken care of right away!! Until next week techies! Happy Halloween!!

Captain Bayes reporting for duty!

Captain Bayes reporting for duty!

My name is Jake Bayes. I am the Technician Supervisor/Production Manager here at Mission Repair! I am sure everyone of you has forever been wondering who the person is that fixes all your lovely devices that you send to us! As much as I like to think I am the only one that fixes your broken screen we do however have a very talented staff that I give all the credit to! It sure does make my job easier knowing I can insure your device (iPod, iPhone, iPad, well you get the idea) is back in your hands in a timely manner. But needless to say, I am the person that makes sure we have the correct part and the part is here awaiting for your device to be fixed and shipped.

I have been with Mission Repair for almost 4 years now. I started in the shipping area and have learned my way to where I am now. For the most part, my time here has been behind the scenes and I have finally convinced Ryan to let me join in on this blog fun. Like i said before I’m sure you all have just been foaming at the mouth for me to introduce myself. I have always had an infatuation with repairing things and ever since I was a young boy I have been tearing things apart and attempting to put them back together. It’s been a great hobby of mine in the past and the best part about it is now I get paid to do it!

This is the first part of my new adventure in to the blogging world. I will be creating a weekly “Tech Tid-Bit” for all the techies out there that want to come and see something I found interesting that a lot of people may not know about. If you ever have a technical question and need someone to call please don’t hesitate- give us a shout at 866-638-8402 or send our service staff an email. Our sales team is very knowledgable and if they can’t answer your question I would be glad to answer it!! Check back with me next week and I will have my very first “Tech Tid-Bit”.

Your Tech Junkie!

Jake

We’re honored that you picked us for this!

Hi again everyone,

Just a quick blog to say that we’ve been featured in a prominent new blog that’s covering our home town of Kansas City. The website, BloggerLocal.com has featured us in their lineup!

Screen Shot 2013-09-27 at 11.57.11 AM

So after an in-depth interview with journalist Ben Hartman, the article went up a few days ago. It’s a perfect fit for us since we have really established Mission Repair as the place to visit in Kansas City for iPhone and iPad repairs, even among the heavy competition that keeps popping up.

Well here’s to a great afternoon here in the KC area with fantastic weather today and I’ll be back shortly with a new Mission Repair special.

Best, Ryan

iPhone Screen Repair Needs Fulfilled At Mission Repair!

Hello M:R Nation –

Mission Repair is made up of over 40 collective years of experience when it comes to iPhone repair. We pride ourselves on this number and it grows everyday. On a personal note, I can still remember when we waited in line overnight for the original iPhone, once it was in our hands, we quickly disassembled it, mastered reassembling it and the rest is history!

As long as there are iPhones, there will be a need for repair. Mission Repair is a great avenue for iPhone repair for many different reason. Lets take a look at why it is a great idea to choose Mission Repair when deciding on a repair center for your iPhone repair needs.

  • We are not two guys in our parents basement – We know everyone has to start somewhere, but there is a risk by taking your device to be repaired by someone who is most likely not practicing business legally. Come walk into our location 7 days a week to have your iPhone repaired!
  • Dollar focused – We try very hard to always give the best prices. We are humans too and know that living is hard and making a living is even harder. We take this into consideration when setting a price on a repair service. If you search on Missionrepair.com  or coupon websites, you are bound to find some great coupon codes as well!
  • Our Warranties are among the best in the industry with a 1 year on all of our screen repairs and lifetime on our battery services!
  • People love us – A lot of our business is word of mouth and we work extremely hard for that! Our customer service is second to none and we treat each customer fairly!
  • Got Repair? This is a benefit unlike any other that you will see and its very simple. If you repair your iPhone with Mission Repair, you will NEVER have to pay full price to repair that screen on that iPhone again! In most cases, we are talking about a 40% decrease in price should you damage your screen again and the best part, its free!  You don’t have to pay a deductible, monthly dues and you are automatically signed up for this, just by using us as your repair center!
  • Quality Parts and service – When you use Mission Repair, you are receiving the best replacement parts and those parts are being installed by technicians that are professionally trained to do so!

So now that I made my case for being the best :-), the question becomes, what iPhone screen repairs do we actually do and how much do they cost? Here are links to all of the iPhone screen repairs that we offer:

Ok, so that was a fairly long list, but it saves you from having to dig through our website. I think the correct answer to the above question is what iPhone screen do we not repair? The answer to that is simple: we repair the all of  ’em! And guess what… Once the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C hit the market, we will be repairing those as well!

Keep in mind that screens are just the start of what we offer and just the start of what could actually go wrong with your iPhone. Unfortunately, we have seen every component on an iPhone fail, break, bust and crash at one point in time. Because of this, we decided long ago to be a FULL SERVICE repair center that would not only specialize in screen repair, but in case replacements, headphone jack repairs, camera repairs, dock port repairs, speaker replacements, all the way down to component level repairs on logic boards!

Thats right, if its broken, we can and will fix it! If you have something other than a screen issue, here is a great place to start your search for a remedy: Mission Repair Full Service Repairs! 

Let me leave you with this, we understand when you are dealing with a damaged iPhone, its a huge inconvenience and it practically puts your life on hold. The way you communicate, your school work, your job, your entertainment and your treasured photos are all in that iPhone. You don’t want to be without it for weeks. You need it working correctly and you need it back in your hands ASAP! We at Mission Repair know this and will work tirelessly to have your iPhone back in your hands in days, not weeks! If you are in the Kansas City area, we can have it back to you in hours! Now, if we can just finish our teleportation machine that we have been working on for the last 3 years completed, we will set records with our turn around time!

Cheers, Troy

 

 

Our “Got Repair” Benefit Is Reaching New Heights!

Hello M:R Nation –

We have hit a momentous number at Mission Repair and that number is 5,000. We have been able to save over 5,000 people some hard earned cash with our Got Repair program in a little over 1.5 years!  What is our “Got Repair program”? Its as simple as this: If you have your broken device repaired with Mission Repair, you will never pay full price for the same repair on the same device again!

You already know your iPhone or iPad is not all that durable.  You just saw it crack before your very eyes. So if you have it repaired, you know full and well that you have a chance of damaging it again.

Imagine walking into a repair center, having your iPod Touch screen repaired, dropping it on the way out and re-cracking the screen. This has actually happened and this is where the Got Repair program comes into play. That customer had to pay just a fraction of what they just paid to have it re-repaired. Of course we offered if up for free in this instance (we felt bad) but the customer declined and paid the Got Repair price.

With that explanation of the Got Repair program, look at this number one more time…5,000! There have been over 5,000 people that know, not only can you drop and crack your device once, but twice, if not three times! So why not cover yourself here? We are not talking insurance, we are talking a massive discount, just for being our customer. There is no deductible, no paper work and no extra charge. It comes automatically with your Mission Repair service!

Keep in mind, we are talking about physical damage here. You already have awesome warranty coverage with Mission Repair, but add on to that accidental damage. Its the very reason we are called the intelligent choice by many people. It just makes sense choosing Mission Repair for your repair needs. Got Repair is attached to each one of our services, so you can bet we have you covered on whatever you need repaired!

So, here’s to another 5,000 customers that we can help save time, money and sanity with!

Cheers, Troy
