People are really making counterfeit iPhones?

Yes, we’ve seen counterfeit – fake – iPhones come into Mission Repair for service. It never works out.

Unfortunately, bogus iPhones aren’t always so obvious. Sometimes they appear in seemingly legit online ads or real-world stores (NEVER at Mission Repair!) Regardless of where they appear, they’re out there, and the people who buy them are being ripped off.

Just how many fake iPhones are being sold in the U.S. is actually hard to pin down. Apple won’t discuss the issue, despite repeated requests for information. Anti-counterfeiting watchdog groups say the problem is big, but they don’t have numbers.

But the anecdotal evidence is there: There was the recent seizure of more than 40,000 counterfeit iPhones in China. Sales of the fakes are not uncommon overseas. Among those who have been caught peddling fake phones stateside recently are a father-son duo in Orange County, Calif.; a teen in Utah; and two stores in a Maryland mall.

Fake iPhones are just part of a much larger counterfeit-electronics problem.

“Counterfeit consumer electronics were the second-most-seized commodity in fiscal years 2013 and 2014, with an estimated MSRP (retail price) of around $145.86 million and $162.20 million, respectively,” said Matthew Bourke, spokesperson for the Intellectual Property Rights Center at Immigration and Customs Enforcement. And remember: Those numbers represent just seizures, not the real volume of counterfeit goods being sold, which everyone involved assumes is much higher.

However big the problem is, what should you do when that guy slides up to you at the bar and offers you a great deal on a phone for cash — or if you’re looking at what you think is an iPhone on sale?

Do yourself a favor, don’t buy it. While it may be a good deal, and it could quite possibly be legitimate, it’s most likely going to cost you big time in the near future. Fake iPhones are not repairable…like at all. We can’t get parts for them at Mission Repair, and we have no idea who even made them. Or worse yet, the phone is real, but let’s say it crashes after 15 minutes of use after it warms up. We see this a lot…and you’d never know what kind of odd issues that piece of electronics is having without knowing it’s origin. Buyer beware, and we’re just here trying to help you out.

Good luck, Ryan

iPhone 6 repairs – price going up?

Hello there technology fans;

We’ve received some interesting news that the price of iPhone 6 screens will be on the rise soon. These parts rise and fall per International demand, supply and availability of the small parts required to assemble the screens as we purchase them.

Screen Shot 2015-08-14 at 11.09.41 AM

This news comes to us from time to time via our vendors, but at the moment the iPhone 6 screen repairs will remain the same price for our customers at Mission Repair. I will keep you updated on this as information develops, however if you’re in the market it might be best to have your iPhone 6 screen repaired sooner rather than later.

This will be industry-wide, and we at Mission Repair will hold our price constant as long as possible…but as usual prices are subject to fluctuate so keep an eye on our page if you’re in need of a screen repair!

Take care, Ryan

New lower price on iPhone 6 screen repairs!

Good morning friends,

Another blog coming this morning about a price drop on iPhone 6 screen repairs that is effective immediately…

We’ve been able to procure better pricing on these screens so we are able to pass the savings on to our customers!

By the way, we are expecting the iPhone 5 screen “situation” to resolve in about 30 days; until then we are definitely going to be low on some iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S screens, so if you’ve like to call and verify inventory, please do. 866-638-8402.

If you’re an iPhone 6 user there is no worry and starting today we are offering a new lower price for you to enjoy.

Have a good morning, it’s starting off as a great week here at Mission Repair!

Thanks, Ryan

iPhone 6 screen repairs – becoming more popular than you think.

Hello everyone,

I just noticed a new trend and that we’re buying a lot more iPhone 6 screens lately. Like a lot more.

Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 5.10.51 PM

The iPhone 6 screens have been in high demand, but they were also very expensive at the onset of these services. Now that a few months have gone by, the cost of the screen has been driven down and this service has become more affordable for all of our customers.

I’d be willing to bet that these screens will soon take over the majority of our screen repairs; it’s already apparent that they are breaking constantly…so if you’ve got an iPhone 6 that DOESN’T have a cracked screen, take care of it!

In fact, I’m still running a “purist” format and I don’t have a case on my screen at this point. It’s looks so nice as a “naked” iPhone 6, but I just know that I’m asking for trouble the first time it falls onto the ground. Mistakes happen, that’s why Mission Repair was born.

Remember that we continue to pioneer new services for our customers and the iPhone 6 screen repair service is almost “old news” at this point. It’s time for a new product. Apple, you listening?

Have a great Wednesday evening, Ryan
