Did you know that it’s National Tequila Day?

Good afternoon friends; I just found out that it’s National Tequila Day today…

My buddy Tony told me about the “holiday” today. Well since I’m working, and quite frankly I’m not a huge tequila fan as it is, I’m not sure how much celebrating I’ll be doing in honor of this day. However it was news to me so I thought I’d share it with you!

iPhone 5 Screen Repair Service!

Hello M:R Nation –

The iPhone 5 is the phone I personally use, which translates to “The iPhone 5 is the phone I drop on a daily basis”. With that being said, I have to tell you that I just finished up dropping my iPhone 5 for the 100th time and to my surprise, the screen still did not crack. This was a pretty gnarly corner drop too. I was certain it was finally time for me to use our iPhone 5 Glass Repair Service.  I am not doing this on purpose. I am not testing a new protective case to put on MissionRepair.com. I am really dropping this thing on accident and it usually happens when I go to put it back into my pants pocket.

 

You'd better baby that iPhone!

You’d better baby that iPhone!

As a person with MANY drops to my name. I have come up with some muscle memory reactions when my iPhone slips out of my hands.

 

  • Foot Cushion – This seems to be my go to reaction when I drop my iPhone. I simply stick my foot out to cushion the fall. This equates to about a 2″ fall after all is said and done.
  • Quick Grab – More often than not, I am able to catch it mid-fall. This is not a great tip, but hey….
  • Jump And Dive – This is just not safe, but I find myself at times diving for my dropped phone. Yes, I have actually found myself on the floor more than once trying to prevent a crack.
  • Walk On Carpet – When interacting with my iPhone, I will often make a point to do so on carpet. I know this is ridiculous, but I have yet to crack my glass so I’m adding it to the list.
  • Cover My Eyes – I do this most of the time. Now that I think about it, I’m just a lucky gent that just happens to not drop it the right way. I think my days are numbered.

But until that day comes, I will continue with my beloved foot cushion and closed eye method which has worked for me through today.

What’s your method of saving your phone?  Let me know!

Of course the bottom line is that if you should happen to crack that screen in the event that one of your acrobatic maneuvers doesn’t work, call us at Mission Repair and we’ll get you fixed up fast.  866-638-8402.

Cheers, Troy

 

 

There seems to be a trend happening. . .

Hi there everyone, it’s an early morning here at Mission Repair. In fact, I got a jump start on my day, coffee in hand (see here’s my coffee):

Yummy. Hot and black, simple brewed goodness.

Yes, I am using a metal (titanium) coffee cup this morning. It’s a Snow Peak Cup and it’s something special. More about my coffee cup of choice in a future blog…

The bottom line is that I’m busy typing away. I was so excited about this next piece that it actually drove me to get up, get in there and get it posted. There’s a trend happening on the internet and quite simply it’s that Mission Repair has done it once again.

For the 5th year in a row, we have won the prestigious Top Ten Reviews GOLD AWARD for the BEST IPHONE REPAIR SITE ON THE INTERNET.

There’s no question that there are other sites out there, and we have a lot of competition. How do we stay number 1? By continuing to provide the Nation’s best service at amazing prices. Are we perfect? Nope. Do we try to give our customers the best possible experience when dealing with a damaged iDevice, Smartphone, Tablet or computer? Yes.

So there it is in black and white. This is our report card and we are darn proud of it!

Ok, so I have a lot of work to get to today, I’ll be back with more info soon. Did you hear that we’ve begun repairing the new Google Nexus 7? Yes, it’s launched and hitting the Press release Webwire today!!

Good morning, Ryan

Cell Phone and iPhone Repair for Christmas? You bet!

Good afternoon folks!

It never fails and it’s happened a dozen times today alone. . .a customer will call and ask for an iPhone Glass repair – and asks if it will be done by Christmas – because the repair itself is a Christmas present for a loved one!

It makes me wonder how many broken devices are hanging around out there in the world. My guess would be “a bunch” 😉

So to assure you, and the bunch of other people that are questioning whether or not we can get our iPhone Repairs done by Christmas: we can have your device repaired by 12/23 if you can get it to us by 12/22/11!

This means that you’re in good shape. You can procrastinate a little longer. I know all about it, I’m one of those “Christmas Eve shoppers” too.

Just remember that you only have a couple of weeks, but what’s a better gift than giving someone the repair that they need?

Mission Repair is here to help.

Happy Holidays! Ryan

4 years in a row? We’ve got to be doing something right!

Hello all, it’s the middle of Cyber Monday. Our phones are ringing off the hook. We’ve had the lines lit up all morning and we’re actually truly just getting started. I’m in love with it and Mission Repair is rocking!

Amidst all the activity, I was informed today that we have done it again. The Mission Repair website has won the GOLD AWARD (top honors) on the independent TopTenREVIEWS website for the 4th year in a row and is recognized as the Best iPhone Repair Website on the internet! You can read the independent review here!

This is not an easy task. Just take a look at their criteria, and we’re judged on:

Website Format
Extras
Customer Service
Security
Community
Turnaround Time
Shipping Options

We made top honors in all categories! In fact we made top honors among ALL OTHER REPAIR WEBSITES on the internet. The great part about this review is that we didn’t do anything special to persuade it – we do all of these things well every day, for every customer. We can talk about ourselves all day long but it’s these kind of reviews that are our real report card. . .

As I write this blog the phones lines continue to stack up. I’m going to assist with a few calls maybe it’s you on the line now 😉 Please hold, I’ll be right there.

Take care, Ryan

AppleCare+ Is it what you’re expecting it to be?

Hello all!

We had our October 4th release from Apple, and personally I think it was a little disappointing. No iPhone 5. Well, the iPhone 4S seems like it has some nifty improvements but its just not enough for me to get really excited. Remember my blog from September 21, 2011? I predicted a “limited” launch on the iPhone 5 in October and I was wrong. We got a “non” launch and it looks like we have some more time to wait for the soon-to-be-legendary iPhone 5.

However we did get AppleCare+ (AppleCare plus) that gives you 2 incidents of accidental damage when you purchase it! This is a breakthrough when you buy your iPhone- you can purchase the AppleCare+ plan and have peace of mind when you buy an iPhone from Apple. Or does it? Let’s take a look at their “included” accidental incident plan, and let’s focus on the screen, which is the most common expensive “accidental” repair. Let’s face it; AppleCare + covers accessories like your earbuds, but it also comes with a $49 replacement fee. . .so I think that I’d rather buy a replacement set of Apple earbuds on eBay for $14.99 outright rather than kill one of my 2 chances for any kind of REAL repair for $49. Let’s dig a little deeper-

1. You have to pay $99 up front to be included in the plan. This is a bit unnerving to have to spend an extra (almost) hundred dollars when you’re already making a purchase, but heck, it can come in handy, right? The issue is that if you DON’T drop or crack your screen you’re out that $99. There’s no turning back!

2. Now, let’s assume you DID buy the AppleCare+ plan for your iPhone. And then you dropped it. No biggie, you’re covered. Yup, you’re covered alright, for an additional $49. This service costs you another $49 on top of the $99. Sheesh!

3. Let’s say you pay the $99, plus the $49, and you drop it again. I mean, how many times can this happen to one person? Believe me unless you have the iPhone tethered to your wrist you know that small items can be dropped – and Apple includes 2 incidents of coverage for a reason. OK Apple will take care of you again for another $49. Bing, there ya go.

4. Ok, here’s where it gets fun. Let’s say you break it for the 3rd time. It’s getting expensive now because Apple is going to charge you $199 for the repair. Remember that they only cover 2 incidents of accidental damage – and you’re into these 3 repairs for $396. You read that right, $396. And if you should happen to break it again? Just keep on adding $199 to the price. Pretty soon you’ll have to take out a second mortgage.

Here at Mission Repair, we were built for this exact scenario. Let’s take a look at this matrix, and you can click on it to get a larger image:

1. We don’t charge you anything up front. So if you never break the screen, you never pay us a dime.

2. Let’s say you do break your iPhone 4 glass. It’s a common issue, and Mission Repair is here to help. As of today, October 6th, 2011 our repair price is $99 which includes parts and labor and our GOT REPAIR warranty benefits.

3. Here’s the beautiful part: If you break it again after we repair it, you AUTOMATICALLY have our GOT REPAIR benefits attached to the phone (which came with your repair for FREE) and we’ll repair it again under our GOT REPAIR program. This only costs you $45 and now you’re into Mission Repair for $144 total.

4. If you break it again (for the 3rd time) then you only pay $45 again. In fact, for Apple’s Accidental Incident Price of $396 I mentioned before, we only charge $189. And there’s the bread and butter of it.

So think it through – there are some benefits to having AppleCare on your device, but to merely go on the basis that Apple now includes accidental damage, my example above of using the iPhone 4 screen repair is pretty clear cut. Mission Repair rises out among the competition, and remains the Intelligent Choice.

Until next time, take care, Ryan
