It’s not unusual that I ask my technicians to take a few pictures of phones that are severely damaged…but it is unusual that an iPhone 6 would come into us in this bad of shape! Check out the “before pictures” below:
Of course, this iPhone 6 needed a lot of TLC…but once we replaced the back case and the glass, the rest of the phone was still working. This is a testament to the “ruggedness” of the rest of the phone even though we all know that the glass can break very easily. Obviously this phone was run over or caught in a car door or something. Normally they don’t look this bad. Once repaired, they typically tend to look this good!
So when people ask “can you fix my iPhone?!?”, just take a look at the pictures above and judge for yourself…if it’s not as bad of the first two pictures, there’s a good chance that Mission Repair will be able to help you out. I mean, there’s not much more someone can do to try to test our skills, right? Thanks to my technician Casey for handling this one.
Our iPhone 6 repair lineup is beginning to overtake the iPhone 5 repair lineup here at Mission Repair. In fact my feeling is that in the month of June this year, we will see a shift from the 5S to the 6 as a more popular repair. Call it a hunch.
This is helping us here at Mission Repair drive down the costs and bring down our pricing. I know that there are a lot of our competitors that just hate it when we lower our prices – I know this because they email me directly at times – but this is a competitive business and when it’s time to move, it’s time to move. Half of me wants to apologize, but the other half says “good luck and try to keep up”.
Our “GOT REPAIR” price has come was down as well…if you didn’t know, we are the ONLY REPAIR COMPANY IN THE INDUSTRY with the exclusive “GOT REPAIR” program. This means that if you have your iPhone 6 screen repaired with us and if you ever break or crack it again…you never pay full price again. It’s a thank you and a testament to our loyalty to our customers all over the country. Try going to that mall kiosk and ask them how much will it be if you break your screen again after you have it repaired – in fact, you need to question whether they will even be there the next time you visit. We put it in writing, honor any repeat business, and thank you for coming to see us again. And yes, we will be around in a year. It’s been 8 years already and going strong, with more locations opening soon!
It’s one of the reasons that some many schools use our services; they repeatedly break devices like iPads, and sometimes we will see the same device in several times.
Thanks again for reading, I’ll talk to you again soon. Ryan
G’day mate. You’d think that I was down under practicing my boomerang techniques with this beauty that we received at the Olathe Mission Repair location this week:
No, that’s not a boomerang. It’s an iPhone, just bent like a boomerang. There’s been a lot of talk about the iPhone 6 bending…but the urban legend that the previous iPhones DIDN’T bend is now confirmed to be FALSE. With enough pressure, they do bend! 😉
This customer was hoping for a good outcome. The fact is that we can repair this; but we are pretty much going to need to replace the entire phone to do so. I think power switch was still good…but everything else from the screen to the battery to the logic board are all toast and dead as fried chicken.
It was a good try…but even Mission Repair has limitations. If you’ve got a “normal” broken iPhone, we’re much better as repairing those than something like this…but it’s worth a shot…at least we can recycle it properly for the customer!
I’m going to go put a few shrimps on the barbie (that’s code for: “keep blogging Ryan”) and head back to work.
