Oh, The Weather Outside Is…Not So Frightful?

Hello M:R Nation –

We are having some interesting weather in Kansas City during the month of January. We finally had our first snow of the winter, the have experienced well below zero temperatures (which is not at all uncommon) and today, it is sunny with the high of 69-72 degrees.

Now, I have lived in this area for most of my life and this has got me scratching my head. Kansas and Missouri are known for their extreme temperatures in either direction, but this is just crazy. I guess we will enjoy it while we can… I hear there is also snow in the forecast for this week!

Samsung Galaxy S III Repairs Made Easy!

Hello M:R Nation –

We at Mission Repair have become infatuated with the Samsung Galaxy S III. There were even talks of Ryan switching from his iPhone 5 to the GS3. I am not sure where he is in that process, but I will get you an update.

Why this infatuation you ask? Well, let me counter that question with a question of my own. Have you seen the Galaxy S III? Have you used the Galaxy S III? If you can answer yes to either or both of those questions, than you can understand the infatuation!

Mountains Of GS3 Screens!

By the mountain of broken screens in the above picture, it seems there are thousands of folks that agree with me. Yes, I understand they are broken. How could anyone want to keep a phone that breaks like that? Well, let me give you a hint…every phone in todays market can and will break like this. “The true test of a smartphones greatness is if someone is willing to repair it” – Troy Harris 2013.

What a better time to replace a phone that you don’t like, than when the screen is cracked. Of course, saving money is always a reason, but if you really hate the phone, you are going to use that as an excuse to move on. That is how I deduced my quote above. Yeah, I just quoted myself…

So in true Mission Repair fashion, we have made it easy for you to start, endure and finish the process of getting your Samsung Galaxy S III repaired. I have laid out below, all of the difference carriers and colors of the Samsung Galaxy S III that we currently service.

The 5 Stages Of Repair

Hello M:R Nation –

People that drop and damage their iPhone, iPad, Smartphone or any other handheld device go through different stages of emotions/actions. This happens every time and maybe without you even knowing it. We are going to talk about the 5 different stages and hopefully bring some counseling to those of you who are going through it at this very moment and advice to those that have yet to experience this unfortunate yet inevitable tragedy of a broken device.

Shock – The first stage of this whole experience is shock. You just spent hundreds of dollars on this brand new piece of technology that you have saved up for months to buy. The moment you dropped your Samsung Galaxy S III, time slowed to 1 frame per second. You saw it falling inch by inch, but there was nothing you could do to stop it. Landing face down on the concert, there is a slight gleamer of hope that the worst did not occur. You pick it up and its shattered along with your psyche. Advice – Keep calm. Breath. Relax. As Harper Lee says “Things are never as bad as they seem”

Grief – Your iPhone 4S is with you 24-7/365. It is no wonder that we get so attached. Your entire life is on this piece of plastic/glass/metal contraption. It is as much as a family member as the dog to some, so its understandable to become saddened at the state of your broken screen. This stage could last for quite awhile if you don’t know what to do next. Advice- Keep calm. Breath. Relax. “All things grow with time — except grief”. This unfortunately includes a hairline crack in glass. 😦

Anger – This is the the most expected and perhaps the lengthiest stage of all. Its easy to be mad. Mad at yourself, mad at your friend or your dog for damaging your precious iPad. It is important to not incur further damage to your iPad or friendship/companionship for that matter. Things are things and can be repaired easily. Advice- Keep calm. Breath. Relax. As Ben Franklin once said “Whatever is begun in anger, ends in shame.”

Acceptance – Once you reach this point, you are almost in the clear. You have recovered from the shock, you have wiped all of the tears away and mended your friendships. This is what I like to call the action step. You decide what you are going to do with this useful, yet crippled iPod Touch. You could just deal with it? You could buy a brand new one? You will start researching and find out what the most cost effective way to rectify this situation. You might run into bumps along the way. FYI: The support from the carrier and/or manufacturer will usually be little to none. Advice- Keep calm. Breath. Relax.”Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it.” -Eckhart Tolle

Mission Repair – This is the completion stage. We have come along way since that shocking mishap. You are just inches away from the finish line. You have chosen a great repair center to entrust your device to and they will repair it CORRECTLY and quickly. Not only are their prices the best in the country. The amount of support they offer before, during and after the repair process is unprecedented. They have a full staff just to field any questions you might have before you order the repair service. An awesome technical department that will treat your device with the upmost care and a program called “Got Repair” for the needed support and any accidents you might have after your initial repair service.Advice – Celebrate. Get Excited. Know you are in good hands.

“You have just made an intelligent choice. Cheers!”

Happy Post Christmas And End Of The World!

Hello M:R Nation –

I am sitting in my office with a sense of accomplishment. Not only did I make it through the end of the world without a scratch, we also had a very successful Christmas at the Harris residence! Chalk full of Ninja Turtle and Toy Story toys, accompanied by a good amount infant girl gadgets, I would say my children had a great time. It also happened to be the first Christmas for my Daughter Kynlee, and I think she found her new favorite day 🙂

So now that we are all safe and have made it through the majority of the Holidays, lets talk about something that is surely to lighten or darken the mood, depending on what topic above you chose to focus on…Samsung Galaxy S III repairs. This repair is hands down the fastest growing repair we are seeing. Why is that? Because the Samsung Galaxy S III is the top selling Smartphone on the market today.

With millions of folks receiving the Samsung GS3 as gifts this Holiday Season, it’s no surprise that a lot of you are looking at the above picture with a grave understanding of what she is going through. No amount of Gorilla Glass can stop the unfortunate inevitability of a broken screen. Inevitable you say? Yes, If I myself can manage to crack the glass on my iPhone 4S, If my son can manage to damage the glass on his iPad 2 and if my brother-in-law can manage to crack his brand new iPad Mini almost freshly out of the box, than yes, cracking a screen on one of your many devices is inevitable.

So what is one to do when they have a freshly received Samsung Galaxy S III that happens to slip out of their hands and crack?  I doubt you want to live with it like that.  You most likely don’t want to shell the cash to buy a brand new one, trading it in for a fee is not much better and you just got it set up the way you like it! Your apps are downloaded, your home screen is perfect and your contacts are loaded and ready to go. It seems your best option would be our awesome screen repair service for the Samsung Galaxy S III!

With your choice of Samsung Galaxy S III (blue) Glass and LCD Screen Repair or Samsung Galaxy S III (white) Glass and LCD Screen Repair, we will have your device repaired and will not touch the settings, contacts or applications. It will be as it was, right between the opening it up for the first time and dropping it.

I hope everyone has enjoyed their time off if you were lucky enough to receive it and for those of you that continued to work hard through the Holidays, I admire the drive and determination to get the job done!

Cheers, Troy

Why is our Smartphone line of repairs so extensive?

Hello there, we’ve got an interesting graphic that helps explain the numbers behind the Android line:

ANDROID-MBA

What does all of this mean? It means that the Android market is here to stay. It’s a real presence. There are times that I see a Samsung Galaxy SIII and think “hmm, that is a nice phone, I love the screen!”. But I am committed to my iPhone without question…for now!

Hey all, the holiday season is upon us, and I can feel the snow coming soon. Take care, and we’ll be back soon!

Best, Ryan
