Waterproof iPhone!

Hello friends-

Can it be true? A waterproof iPhone? How many times have you heard about a phone being “liquid damaged” and then fails to work? This would be an amazing piece of electronics!

Well, the fact remains that there is no waterproof version of the iPhone – and iOS 7 won’t save your device from water dunks either, despite the ads you may have seen. Those were a hoax.

The bottom line is that you should not take your iPhone swimming with you, even if you have the greatest ever “Backstroke Workout” playlist. These devices do not play well with H2O. I know most users that end up with liquid damaged phones don’t intentionally dive into the deep end with their devices…rather most liquid damages occur by accident. We have even heard of customers that don’t have any idea how their phones got wet which makes the liquid damage a total mystery! Trust me though, water will quickly corrode and kill a device.

Does that mean you should go buy a new phone? Remember that “out of contract” phones are ridiculously expensive!

Well, now that you’ve found Mission Repair, we can solve these issues in our service lab. We have state of the art equipment that allows us to perform several stages of logic board repair – starting with “Stage 1 – Liquid Damage Repair“. The best part about our service is that we do it in house with our certified technicians, we complete the repair within 48 hours and we DON’T charge you for any repairs if we cannot repair it. Of course, this can happen from time to time and we wouldn’t be able to sleep at night charging you for service that didn’t fix the issue.

So when in need, Mission Repair is there for you. Want more info? Give us a call at 866-638-8402 for help!

Take care, Ryan

We are OPEN in Kansas City, Missouri!

Hello all,

It’s official. . .we are now open and available at our Kansas City location and we are taking walk in business as we speak!

We are open and ready! Pardon our construction.

When I say it’s official, I mean it. But I also want to make you aware that the store is open and ready for walk-ins, but it’s not that pretty. I am stating that now so if you stop by in the next week and if it still looks like we’re moving in, we are truly still moving in. The good part is that it’s only cosmetic- the back tech room is complete and 100% functional. We’ve got 4 technicians ready to rock at this new site and we’re going to use them to the fullest!

Our large lighted sign is in the works, so there’s no “MISSION REPAIR” sign out front, but we do have it on the door, and we’re happy and delighted to get your business at this new location if it’s more convenient for you to drop by that store. I know that it will be more convenient for the Apple Store in Leawood, Kansas- it’s about 1.5 miles from our new location and they are starting to send referrals over to us today. This is HUGE news and a big help.

Stop by and visit us!

Mission Repair
13141 State Line Road
Kansas City, Missouri 64145

We are taking walk-in and mail in repairs at this site, as well as walk-in and mail in repairs at our corporate headquarters and main service center in Olathe, Kansas. Additionally you can drop off your repairs in 5 other states and there may be a Mission Repair near you. If not – give us a call at 866-638-8402 and we’ll have your device picked up from your location. Truly there’s no need to leave your house, we will handle your repair from the comfort of your living room, but if you want to get outside and get some sunlight find us at one of our Mission Repair locations!

Take care, Ryan

Does Mission Repair take credit cards?

Hello all, I just took a phone call from a customer that asked “Do you take credit cards?” While this seemed to be a silly question with an obvious answer, maybe it just needs to be clarified.

YES WE TAKE CREDIT CARDS!

Not only do we take credit cards at Mission Repair, we DON’T charge credit card fees or give “cash discounts”. We’ve been taking credit cards from the very first day we started our business and it’s the best way for our customers to stay protected when purchasing online.

In addition to taking credit cards for payment, we take PAYPAL payments, cashier checks, local personal checks and cash. We prefer to only take cash when you visit our store directly, it’s not safe to send cash in the mail!

For our larger customers we even offer Net 30 terms and we offer instant Net 30 terms to all Schools and Government agencies.

I hope this helps. We are a company that offers a myriad of different ways to conduct business and we’re happy to help. Just give us a call at 866-638-8402 if you have any questions!

Best, Ryan

iPhones can’t swim.

Good afternoon everyone! We’re back in style. That long weekend did everyone some good and the 4th of July festivities were amazing last night. I love fireworks, spending time with the family and spending some time on the water. I did a little wakeboarding this weekend and I’m a little sore to be honest. There’s nothing wrong with just floating around in the lake as well – which I did plenty of!

Remember though. . .iPhones don’t swim!

Even worse yet, they HATE the water. We’ve got some tips and tricks to help the situation, but the best thing to do when you iPhone gets wet is to get it into us asap. This is not a sales tactic. It’s a fact. We need to get into the unit and clean the corrosion off immediately.

I saw this first hand. Remember I was talking about wakeboarding? Well, my iPhone got wet this weekend. I set it in the cup holder on the boat, and there was a little bit of water at the bottom of the cupholder. My dock connector got wet and this morning my iPhone would no longer charge or connect to my computer. It’s the truth and a little disassembly and cleaning took care of the problem.

In any case, your iPhone is out of warranty. Don’t bother sending your unit into Apple or try to get a warranty repair – they don’t have the same level of services – this is our specialty. We are the GO TO business for out of warranty repairs (cracked glass, liquid damage, breakage) and we’re providing the best service at the best prices with the best warranties.

Give us a call! 866-638-8402.

Best, Ryan
