I’ve been writing this blog for a while- in fact, we’ll be entering our 7th year of blog.missionrepair.com blogging in 2014. I’ve always tried to connect with you here and if there’s anything that you’d like to see me write in the blog, just let me know! Send a comment below and we’ll chat.

In any case, if you’re one of my subscribers, I sincerely appreciate your readership and I’ll continue to add new and interesting posts when my writers block doesn’t shut me down *temporarily*.

Speaking of writers block, did you know that I published a book in 2013? We are hitting some record sales numbers for an “Arter” publication. I can confidently say that because I am the only author in the Arter family at this time! In fact, the book has been selling across the globe with releases in the USA, along with Europe, Canada and even Australia. It’s been a fun ride and wanted to make sure that you knew about it in case is something that might interest you. How to Start a Home Based Computer Repair Business is on sale now!

Thanks again for reading, I’ll be back soon.

I dropped my iPhone on the carpet and it broke!

Hello friends – we have heard this time and time again.

Can it be true? Dropping an iPhone on your living room rug can cause the screen to crack? I can remember my early Motorola phone that I would intentionally toss across the room – or on the ground – easily on a carpeted surface – and not have an issue.

The fact is that it is true. If you drop an iPhone on carpet it can crack. I have not personally ever seen it, but since we’ve repaired almost a quarter of a million devices in the last 6 years, the sheer number of customers that have stated this is staggering.

What can be done about this? Firstly, keep your iPhone in a case. If you’re a purist like me, that’s going to be tough. I like the sleek and stylish look of the iPhone without a case engulfing it’s body, but if you’re accident prone the case just might save you a trip to our service center. The sad truth is that a case doesn’t guarantee your iPhone’s safety. That’s where Mission Repair can come in handy.

We are constantly running specials and coupon codes for customers to get their iPhones fixed quickly. So if you’re in the market because you’ve recently dropped your iPhone onto the family heirloom rug (or anywhere else) just give us a call. 866-639-8402. We’re here for you.

Take care, Ryan

Terrifying Tuesday Video Blog – Part 2!

Hi again friends of Mission Repair – we are really having a great time this week. Now it’s time for you to get yourself involved and watch this video:

This was about 15 takes in because I kept on laughing. Ok so I admit it, we had a great laugh and most of the outtakes were because of me 😉 If you can’t laugh at yourself, you’re taking life too seriously!

This is a fantastic time to get your device repaired – and receive a gift certificate for your next visit, or even to be given as a gift to a loved one!

Well, stay tuned for tomorrow’s special as we approach the festivities on Thursday. Until then, have a great day.

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

Remember our Superbowl ads in 2012? Just wait to see the new ones in 2013!!

Hello everyone,

It’s getting close the the big day – Superbowl Sunday on February 3rd, 2013. It’s a big day because of course we are going to be able to watch the 2 best teams in Football face off in what looks like is going to be a spectacular matchup. As the playoffs continue, its fun to watch these amazing teams square up. . .and there were some fantastic stories this year with rookie quarterbacks and retiring veterans. And no Chiefs.

It’s also a big day because we at Mission Repair have signed up for another 2 commercials that will air in the Superbowl at halftime! Yes we are currently in production finalizing our new 2-part commercial that will air at halftime during this years 2013 SuperBowl and they are going to be amazing! We have really stepped up our game on this one, no pun intended.

We are excited and we’ve got a huge Superbowl party scheduled at the Arter house. It’ll be a fun day, but more likely a stressful/exciting day as the game develops and the commercials land on our TV screen. As a business owner, there’s a major point of pride during the game and I’m excited to bring another piece of entertainment to you!

Did you miss our 2012 Superbowl commercials? Watch them here!

Is your team still in the Superbowl running?

Have a great day, Ryan
