Hello iPhone and Happy Anniversary!

Hello M:R Nation –

It was today, 7 years ago that many of us around the world sat and watched/read history in the making. With these following words, life as we know it changed:

“Today, we’re introducing three revolutionary products. The first one is a widescreen iPod with touch controls. The second is a revolutionary mobile phone. And the third is a breakthrough Internet communications device. So, three things: a widescreen iPod with touch controls, a revolutionary mobile phone, and a breakthrough Internet communications device. An iPod, a phone, and an Internet communicator. An iPod, a phone…are you getting it? These are not three separate devices. This is one device. And we are calling it iPhone. Today, Apple is going to reinvent the phone.” -Steve Jobs

It’s hard for us at Mission Repair not to have an emotional attachment to this day. For few of us old timers (relatively speaking) we can clearly remember taking a break from repairing the ever so popular 4th generation iPod, huddling around a computer, reading the updates and vigorously hitting the refresh button, so we could finally get a glimpse of what everyone at the time wanted so badly for Apple to produce!

Fast forward 7 years later and you can clearly see how this announcement affected everyone in the world. Yes, everyone! You are either an iPhone user or you use a smartphone that was produced by a company pushed so hard by Apple to come up with a competitive alternative just to stay in business. You only have Apple to think for your awesome Samsung GS4, because without this announcement at Macworld Expo 2007, we would all still be using flip phones.

On a side note, did you know that Mission Repair, to this day still offers repairs for the original iPhone? This is true! We have multiple folks per week needing to mend their piece of history.

To this day, the original iPhone is my favorite Apple product ever released. I regret selling mine off to buy the then, newly released iPhone 3G. I would love to have one in working condition so I can share that history with my children when they are grown. In the world of ever changing technology, this little device truly started it all. Happy Anniversary, iPhone!

Cheers, Troy

 

Deal Of The Month: iPhone 4 & 4S Screen Repair!

Guten Tag MR:Nation –

In case you missed it, this past weekend brought the last of day of Summer. I know, this is bad news. Until you realize that this weekend also brought the first day Fall! If you know me or have been a reader of this blog over the years, you know that I LOVE THE FALL! Football is in full effect, the weather is brilliant, colors are changing and it is the door way into the holiday season!

My only complaint this fall will be the massive piles of leaves that I will have to pick up. Being the new owner of 4 huge trees in my back yard is going to bring a whole new aspect to this season that I love so much. Hopefully it doesn’t sour me…

iPhone Rumors And The Iced Americano!

Ok People – I have two very important events taking place at my desk, right this very second. I started a post that had nothing to with what I’m about to talk about here, but a new service can always wait… Right?

A. I am catching up on the newest iPhone rumors and it is heating up. Here is what we in the fanboy community know so far: We will be seeing 2 new iPhone models launched. The iPhone 5S and a lower priced iPhone “5C”. The iPhone 5 S will be very similar to the iPhone 5 with some upgrades that have been rumored to a tame upgraded dual LED flash to a wild sapphire- covered convex home button with a fingerprint sensor. If you ask me, I think Apple will do as they always do and just slightly improve on what is an already great product.

Now the iPhone 5C is another story. It is a completely new product and the purpose of it is to be a lower cost solution for folks that want an iPhone in their lives! It will have an all plastic shell, come in a slew of colors and from what I am hearing, a great camera.

The Rumored iPhone 5C Back Case!

B. I am thoroughly enjoying this iced Americano whilst I am catching up on these rumors! What is an iced American you ask? It is the most simple and delicious drink you can have if you enjoy the taste of strong coffee. Take espresso, a little bit of water, ice and you will have one stellar drink! Sure, throw some sugar or milk in there if you need. But to enjoy in its purest form, drink it straight 🙂

Yummy

Thanks Starbucks! You are never my first choice, but you will do…

In closing…we know how exciting a new product release from Apple can be and If you have a broken iPhone 4, 4S or 5, the release of the new iPhone 5S can’t come soon enough. But consider this, Mission Repair can repair that broken iPhone for you! Like we always say: Repair, Don’t Replace! You can either save yourself from entering into ANOTHER 2 year contract, spending a whole gaggle of cash on an unsubsidized phone or at least repair so you can sell it for a maximum profit and put that money towards your new iPhone 5S!

Whatever you choose to do, we are here to help and save you money! That is why we started Mission Repair and that is why we are still around after all this time! You and other people love to save money!

Cheers, Troy

Training Camp Saturday!

Hello M:R Nation –

Mission Repair partners with many different people and organizations throughout the year, and one of our favorites is the Kansas City Chiefs.  On Saturday, we were invited to their training camp and received a VIP treatment! Here are a few pictures from the event!

It was a beautiful day and we throughly enjoyed watching what is sure to be a playoff contender, practice for a few hours! We enjoyed some great food, drinks and most of all company as you can see in the above pictures. Do you see Matt there challenging Dexter McCluster to an iPhone repair competition? Well, Dexter came back with a foot race challenge and that pretty much shut Matt down :-).

We have many cool Chiefs events planned and can’t wait for this coming season! So watch out and listen for Mission Repair at a Chiefs game near you!

Cheers, Troy

iPad repairs are rolling out. I’m not sure why we ever take a day off!

Hello folks, I’ve been trying to get back to the blog today but it’s has been a busy day around good old Mission Repair. In fact, we are quickly approaching our “record-breaking” mark for number of orders in a single day and it’s only 5:00pm here in Kansas City. I think that we will reach that milestone shortly!

All of this activity really slows us down on the rest of the necessary daily activities – like blogging – or emails – or taking out the trash 😉 I think that we are still a little backlogged from the day off last week when the entire company was closed for the 4th of July. It’s always a nice break to get out of the office and take some time with our families but honestly it really cramps the business when we return.

As a business owner, it’s fine with me. But as a working owner, I understand the pressures that it puts on the employees. I’m feeling it too!

So it is the end of the day, I am able to sit down and jot out a few words. I just wanted to stop and say “thank you” for all of your business, praise and input. We are doing our best here providing the nation with the most amazing iPad Repair service and fixing cracked iPhones by the truckload. . .and I will continue to improve our service packages.

Remember if you need us, just call 866-638-8402. We are open 7 days a week but remember if it’s 4th of July, Thanksgiving Day, or Christmas, we’ll be relaxing for a minute.

Have a great day, Ryan
