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.

Cracked iPhone 6 and what it looks like from the inside…

Good afternoon-

I wanted to take some time today to talk about the iPhone 6, show you a cracked unit as received from a customer, the tear down, and the end result after my senior technicians performed the repair. This customer placed their order online for a cracked screen repair, and did so by visiting our website by clicking this link: Phone 6 Screen Repair

We received the phone, and here’s what it looked like right out of the box…CRACKED!

IMG_1121

The phone pre-tested out well, no additional issues upon arrival, all that was needed was a screen to be replaced. We disassembled the device; notice that all of the cabling is up near the top of the device on the logic board. This is good news for rework facilities like Mission Repair – less likelihood of damaging a home button cable upon opening.

Then it was time to install the new screen. Our screens are exact replacements – the same screens that are used in the manufacturing process. After reassembly, all that’s left to do it test the device and run it through our QA procedure.

IMG_1126

Of course, we test all of our customer units before hey leave our facility, and we properly dispose of all used eWaste. In some cases, we gather things like batteries and other disposables and deliver them to the proper facilities. The cracked screen from this repair will be cataloged and saved internally as we may find a need for it in the future.

Since the iPhone 6 was released not even one week ago, we still have a little time for the price on these parts to “settle down” into a reasonable range. Just like anything else, demand for the screen vs. supply is skewed currently, and the price for the repair is higher than it will be by the time Christmas of this year is upon us.

As always, and with any iPhone that is still currently in use, we can repair the screen for you fast. Point in case, we received this device and were able to check it into our system, run it through our pre-test station, deliver it to the technician production line, repair the device, notate the customer’s order in our database, complete the repair, send it to QA, ship it and notify the customer of their outbound tracking number all in the same day. We do this thousands of times every month and we keep getting better!

That’s the Mission Repair Difference, and we’re here to help.

Have a great weekend. Ryan

P.S. – This iPhone was not bent when we received it. No bending here yet!

iPhone 6 Plus Bending? Like a boomerang.

Hello blog readers-

There’s been a lot of press about the iPhone 6 Plus and the fact that it seems to be “bending” when left in your pocket for a while. Wait, what? BENDING? This seems improbable!

bendediphone6

Maybe Apple should make a “bendy-straw-accordion” version of the iPhone 6 Plus. Or you might need to have it repaired. You can wrap it around your handlebars if you want to 😉

Bending an iPhone is not that improbable. We here at Mission Repair have seen every type of iPhone disaster imaginable. Bent phones, while rare, do happen. The iPhone 5 and 5S are perfect examples of a rugged phone. They have squared off edges with additional metal strengtheners along each edge. The iPhone 6 Plus has rounded edges and is made of aluminum and does not have the same strengtheners as it’s predecessor.

So then there’s a “heat” theory. An iPhone 6 Plus slips into your pocket, and then starts to heat up. This gets the metal hot and therefore logically will make it more pliable. There are a few stories on forums and blogs that are popping up with customer horror stories…but let’s not all panic yet. There’s a lot to be discovered about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus that only time will tell.

Want some advice? Don’t put the iPhone 6 Plus into your back pocket and sit on it. Actually, don’t do this with any phone. These are small hand-held electronic devices, but they don’t have flexibility or the design to remain pocket bound. That’s your wallet’s job.

Let us know if you have any questions or if you’ve found that your iPhone 6 Plus is bent and you’re not sure why; we’d love to investigate!

Have a great day, Ryan

iPhone 6 Screen repairs launched! Now available at Mission Repair.

Hello folks-

We’ve received our first shipment of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus screens at the Mission Repair warehouse, and they have been entered into inventory. Here’s what they look like (the bubbles that you see are protective plastic):

IMG_5254

And a picture of the same screens from the back:

IMG_5255

There’s little doubt that the iPhone 6 Plus will be a big “adjustment” to anyone that has only used an iPhone 5S or older due to it’s shear size…and we are now beginning to take orders daily for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus screen repairs.

In fact, I saw on the news yesterday and on TV this morning that customers are reporting that their iPhone 6’s are bending when in their pocket. Wow. Clearly these are thin, lightweight, but “bendable”? I’ve seen iPhone 5’s bend, but only under severe weight and stress. Not by slipping them into your pocket. Time will tell about this issue, we’ll keep you informed!

Until then, let us know how you like your new iPhone if you’ve got one, and remember Mission Repair if you need a screen repaired.

Have a good morning, Ryan
