Own a “vintage” phone?

Hello friends, I just watched a video on CNN.com that talked about the fad of owning and using a “vintage” cell phone. This was work related, so watching videos while at work is ok in this situation 😉

Apparently there is a new trend in cell phones – one that is making it “cool” to use an older, greyscale, non-smart phone as a sign and symbol of the times. I think that I might be one of the users that would quite possibly lean toward a “less-smart” smartphone – personally I’ve got so many means of communication with the outside world including through this blog I’m writing, that my cell phones seem to be on “offense” at all times. Yes, I have 2 phones, both set up and designed for very different purposes. Gulp.

In fact, I recently removed my email from my iPhone altogether and I’m a much happier man for it. I know, it’s strange…I just wait until I get to the office!

I find it a bit distracting when I’m out at a restaurant and see everyone swiping their phones; reading, texting, gaming or whatever. In my opinion it’s not a bad idea to take a break from the technology and look up once in a while.

UK manufacturer, Binatone, is making a new “Brick” phone. That’s right, it’s similar to the one that in the picture above, but it’s actually new and you can buy them now. Simple technology and a fashion statement to boot that come in several colors. There’s a caveat – you won’t get the smartphone experience. Not being able to Tweet or visit Facebook might freak you out for a minute but let’s face it, what did you do before Twitter and Facebook were around?

There’s a plus to older phones. Not only are they nostalgic but with the lack of a full-face glass screen they seemed indestructible. I can’t tell you how many times I dropped my old Blackberry on the ground and it NEVER failed. One drop of an iPhone and you’ll need to send it into us for glass repair. It’s how and why we are in business.

Are you willing to lose your smart features? Well that’s your call – no pun intended.

Happy talking, Ryan

What are you doing Sunday? We have a pigskin special you might want to read about.

Hello Mission Repair friends-

We’ve been in the news lately and even on NBC new last week. If you haven’t heard, Mission Repair (and businesses like Mission Repair) are offering safe and convenient repairs for your trusty hand held electronics (like iPads and tablets) and have been doing so for many years.

Did you stock up on Velveeta for this weekend?

Did you stock up on Velveeta for this weekend?

In fact, 2014 will start our 7th year in business…and the 2014 Superbowl is just right around the corner!

This weekend represents a couple of amazing football games. First, we’ve got the New England Patriots playing against the Denver Broncos at 3:00pm est. Brady vs. Manning; this ought to be a great game. Then immediately thereafter, we’ve got the San Francisco 49ers playing against the Seattle Seahawks at 6:30 est. Kaepernick vs. Wilson. Not to be outdone by the earlier game, this matchup promises to be equally as exciting!

If you watch football at all, you’re likely finding yourself already making predictions and leaning toward who you think will be in the Superbowl in February, even if your team has already been eliminated from the playoffs.

If you don’t watch football at all- that’s ok. Just take a glimpse of a game and pick the team that has your favorite colors – because that probably has more bearing on the outcome of these games that anything else. You get what I’m saying? It’s all up in the air and anything can happen!

Here’s what I’m going to do. Do yourself a favor and watch these games. It’s only two – or at least watch the highlights of the games. Whichever of these teams scores the most touchdowns…I’ll give 5% off of your new repair order for each touchdown.

So, let’s make this clear: I don’t care who wins or when. But out of these 4 teams, whichever team scores the most touchdowns (extra points, field goals, safety’s are not included) I’m talking the team with the most 6 POINT TOUCHDOWNS we will extend 5% off for each. For example, if the Denver Broncos score 7 touchdowns this weekend, we will offer 35% off of any repair on Monday.

So here’s the catch: watch the games and find out which team scored the most touchdowns this weekend. Then call us between 8am and 6pm central standard time on Monday January 20th, 2014 and ask for the FOOTBALL SPECIAL. This offer is valid ONLY ON NEW PHONE ORDERS MONDAY JANUARY 20TH, 2014. If you call before or after our operating hours on Monday, the special will be over! Additionally, you won’t be able to combine this special with any other offer. I mean, I’m really putting myself out on a limb here. 7 touchdowns is NOT out of the realm of any of these teams!! Denver has already done that in the regular season…so it’s completely possible.

866-638-8402.

What happens if there’s a tie between two teams? Will you be able to double your savings? No, but that would be interesting 😉

This is a potential boatload of money savings for you, and a great time to get that iPhone or iPod repaired. Hut, hut, hike!

Have a great weekend, we’ll be talking on Monday for sure.

Best, Ryan
