iPhone 5 series screen assemblies – in demand.

Hello friends,

It’s come to everyone’s attention in the repair industry that iPhone 5, 5C and 5S screens are in limited supply, and vendors have already started raising prices on some screens due to demand.

Let's play "What's in the box?"  With parts in high demand, sometimes our orders are short!

Let’s play “What’s in the box?” With parts in high demand, sometimes our orders are short!

In fact, there are some vendors that are already out of stock on popular items like the Black iPhone 5S; with no ETA on new inventory. This is apparently the result of the Apple production lines shutting down manufacturing of these parts, and with not a lot of stock on hand, the supplies are drying up quickly.

It’s easy to forget that we had a similar situation a couple of years back for the iPhone 4 lines of screens- and it takes the retooling and setup of a new production line in a different manufacturing plant to solve the issue. It was scary at the time, but we will be back at normal production rates – and probably lower prices – when the move is over.

So we may be in an iPhone 5/5C/5S screen drought here very soon; we will keep you posted with news and releases of parts as they come to us, but for the immediate future is seems that we will be OK. At Mission Repair we’ve done our best to grab inventory quickly and get stock on our shelves to attempt to ride out any shortages that may come about.

I’ll let you know more as we are made aware. Ryan

Super Bowl Sunday Is A Frightening Event For Your Phone.

iphone repairThe big game is this weekend! On Sunday, February 1st the Seattle Seahawks take on the New England Patriots and it is a day many football fans dream about all year long. With Superbowl Sunday also comes large amount of delicious food, lots of drinks, fun times with friends and family, and one more thing… a cracked phone. That’s right. It is a frightening time for your phone! Whether you have an iPhone 6, Galaxy S 5, HTC One, Nokia Lumia, etc. While Mission:Repair is here for you if anything happens to your device, we have also come up with a few tips on how to prevent any accidents during the game.

1. Keep your phone away from beverages. It is so easy for a drink to get knocked over in a intense football game. While everyone is huddled around the TV sharing a couch, beverages are bound to get knocked over so play it safe and steer clear of laying your phone down by full cups.

2. Keep your phone away from food. This may sound weird but you’d be surprised. If you’re checking Facebook on your phone over a plate of food, there is a chance your device could drop into cheese dip, baked beans, etc. It’s safest to keep it away from the delicious food.

3. Don’t hold your phone in your hand during the game. Sounds simple right? It may be harder than you think. During the game, be sure to leave your phone in your purse or pocket. This will prevent it from being spiked when celebrating a touchdown.

4. Protect the phone. If you don’t already have a case or screen protector on your device – now may be a good time to purchase one. While cases can’t completely prevent your device from being cracked or damaged – it can help reduce the chances of your phone resulting in a cracked screen.

These tips may be a bit extreme and accidents are bound to happen during an exciting event like the Super Bowl. If for any reason your phone becomes a victim of a cracked screen, is damaged by water or has any other issues after the big game – be sure to call the experts at Mission:Repair (866-638-8402). We repair just about any smartphone on the market and our certified technicians know their stuff. We will repair your device and get it back to you good as new.

I hear you, you want to pay less for iPhone 5, 5S and 5C screen repairs. I’m on it.

To Repair Or Not Repair?

Hello everyone,

To repair or not repair? That is the question of the week. With every September, comes an Apple media event. With an Apple media event, comes newly released products and with newly released products comes that question. . .Should I repair this broken Smartphone screen? Some of you might be looking to switch from an Android or Windows phone, some of you might be limping along, for as long as you can, to get a glimpse of the new products before you make your decision. And some of you might be just like my friend Darrin, his iPhone 5S is perfectly fine (but he’s been living with a cracked screen for some time), but he’s the kind of guy that likes the newest product that Apple has to offer! For those of you that are saying that, this post might not be for you 🙂 So lets talk for a moment on what Apple is expected to release via the rumor mill. We are anticipating two new iPhone products. The iPhone 6 with a 4.7″ screen and the iPhone 6 with a massive 5.5″ screen.

Screen Shot 2014-09-08 at 12.04.37 PM

The iPhone 6 should bring the following features:

-Rounder and thinner designs
-Tapered screens that apparently taper off at the edges
-Optical Image Stabilization for clearer pictures and a 10MP camera
-A sapphire screen for superior scratch resistance
-iOS8

So with those features in mind, the question becomes, can I live without the latest and greatest from Apple? I’m going to stay with my iPhone 5 for a while…faced with the same dilemma, it is easy to see from the information provided, that Apple is not going to release a game changer tomorrow for me.

Alright, so I know my opinion may not be that convincing, but let me shed some light on the facts of repairing over replacing:

-It is usually cheaper to repair your Smartphone, than replace (Consider the new 2 year agreement you are about to sign up for)
-It’s green (Meaning you don’t have to contribute to a growing worldwide e-waste problem)
-You don’t have to deal with the hassle of moving over all of your data over (I recently had to do this…not fun)
-It most cases, you are supporting a local business

Ok, so if you are dead tired of your old iPhone 3GS or Samsung GS3 and are just ready for something new, let me make a case for you. Did you know that you could sell that old Smartphone? You can find many business that will buy your old device from you. You could also sell them yourself on eBay or Craigslist and Apple has even started their own trade in program so you can use that against the purchase of new products in their retail stores. In every case, you will make substantially more with a fully functioning Smartphone than a broken one. It logical.

I hope this sheds some light on why its a good thing to repair instead of completely replace your smartphone when an event like tomorrow is upon us. If you choose to repair and keep, repair and replace or repair and give away as a gift, the common denominator here is REPAIR! Don’t let that smartphone end up in the garbage or in your bottom drawer for years to come!

Take care, Ryan

Gesundheit!

Good afternoon friends-

How was your Labor Day? I had a nice relaxing day yesterday…all except for the fact that my allergies to the pollen in the Kansas City area have been terrible. It feels like I’ve been eating OTC allergy medicine for my meals recently 😉 The last couple of weeks have been a little miserable, and it seems like Sudafed just isn’t helping any more at this point. So I’ve upgraded to the pseudoephedrine/cetrizine combination which seems to be working…

Summer allergies.

So I think I have the itchy eyes and sneezing under control this afternoon which feels great! I normally don’t have this kind of “hay fever” this late in the year; it probably has something to do with the climate changes in the world today.

Anyhow, that’s enough about my medical problems for today and I’ll be back tomorrow with a few great blogs. I have the ideas flowing. Did you see Melanie’s blog earlier today about our new pricing on the iPhone, 5, 5C and 5S screen repairs? It’s been a huge hit.

I’ll talk to you again tomorrow, have a good night.

September Is Here And So Is A New Deal Of The Month!

This month we decided to go ahead and extend our Labor Day Sale on iPhone 5S Screen Repairs through the entire month of September. I asked Ryan what he wanted the new price to be and he surprised me by saying $109! I had to double check with him a few times to make sure he was sure. That’s right, during September we have marked iPhone 5S Front Glass Repairs down to just $109 (regular price: $149).

Have a great day,

Yes, it’s a workday.

Hello friends-

It was an awesome weekend and Monday has already come and (is almost) gone. Tonight at Mission Repair we have a quarterly company meeting; we gather all of the employees and get together to discuss issues, promotions, new hires, new policies, new repairs, etc. It’s a good time and tonight we are having Oklahoma Joe’s BBQ cater in the dinner. Ever been to Oklahoma Joe’s? It’s one of the restaurants that you need to add to your bucket list. We take it for granted here in Kansas City, but for those that travel from abroad, this is a famous and popular stop for many.

Almost time for some BBQ!

Almost time for some BBQ!

I was just thinking that next week is a short week! Yes, for most of us we will be taking the day off next Monday for Labor Day- but a lot of you in retail will be working. I get it; we are in a bit of a conundrum here at Mission Repair. We have always taken the day off; but now we have a retail location that is open 7 days a week. Does that mean that we should also close the retail location (as well as our corporate headquarters) to accommodate all of the employees? I need to think about this and time is running out!

In any case, we have a lot to do this week to be ready for the Labor Day rush. We will be putting out an amazing newsletter at the end of the week with some serious prices drops on some of our most popular services. Have an iPhone 5S screen that’s cracked? It’ll go on sale Friday afternoon if you can wait!

Otherwise, have a great weekend and I’ll talk to you again tomorrow. Melanie has promised me that she’s going to blog again in the morning, it’ll be good to hear from her.

Take care, Ryan
