A little Glitch

Hello M:R Nation –

Yesterday we had a tiny glitch with Missionrepair.com that had a not so tiny effect. We were shut down for nearly 2 hours and working hard to get it back up and running. This glitch also derailed our wonderful blog as well. We found and corrected the issues and we are back to 100% now!

Were-Sorry

For those of you that we missed in those two hours, I would like to extend a special discount. Please email me at troy@missionrepair.com and I will gladly hand over a great coupon code for you to use on your purchase. I will set it to last 365 days so you can use it at any point in the next year.

As you can see, we take it pretty personally when something like this happens and we will work hard to make sure we are never out of commission again!

Cheers, Troy

 

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

iPad 2 VS The New iPad(3) VS iPad With Retina Display(4)

Hello M:R Nation –

I think there might be some confusion among folks over the differences are between the different iPad models. So allow me to shed some light on some of the subtle and not so subtle differences.

Form the outside, you are not going to be able to notice much, if any differences at first glance. All 3 devices are 9.50″ x 7.31″ x 0.37″, all have a 9.7″ display and all sport a facetime and rear camera, but a great way to tell the difference between an iPad 2 and the others is the Siri function. All newer generation iOS devices have Siri.

Now to tell the difference between the The New iPad and iPad With Retina Display is very simple, just look at the bottom of the iPad. You will see  The New iPad  has the old 30 pin connector and the iPad With Retina Display sports the great new “Lightning” connector which looks like this:

Those are just some industry tips that we use here daily to identify what you are sending to us. While most folks get it right, we do have the occasional customer that orders the wrong service. Hopefully this can serve as a guide for those of you that are not quite sure. Moving forward, lets talk about the inside of these great devices.

This is where it can get complicated, so I won’t go too in depth. The iPad 2 had a lot less in common with it’s two successors when it comes to the internals. Take the glass/digitizer for an example. The iPad 2 has a completely different connector than the The New iPad and the iPad With Retina Display which share the same cable (Shown in the picture below).

In fact, the LCD is the same on the two successors as well. Now, we don’t usually disclose this type of information, but I want to make one thing clear, The New iPad and the iPad with Retina display use the SAME screen. So PLEASE, don’t fall for the marketing tricks of other companies and pay more for the iPad with Retina display, It is exactly the same and it should cost the same as The New iPad repair!

For further internal information, check out this comparison chart. It really shows some key differences and similarities between the 3 models.

As you can see, looks can be deceiving. While these 3 models look identical, they are for the most part different and different for the better. This is what Apple is known for. Taking something great and slightly improving it for the better.

Lastly, I want to shed some light on the biggest thing these 3 iPads have fiercely in common. Mission:Repair services all of them! We do the leg work on finding the differences and sourcing those different parts so you don’t have to deal with it:-)!

From screens to headphone jacks and everything in between, we are you one stop shop for iPad repair. I hope this post has helped you to identify what iPad you own. Even if it is not broken, it’s still good to just know. If it is broken, I hope find some of the links below helpful. Just click and enjoy!

Hello M:R Nation –

Today is a special day as far as the Date is concerned. We are looking at the final repetitive date in our life time. For the last 10 years, we have have seen 01-01-01, 02-02-02, 03-03-03 all the way up to today, 12-12-12. Sure, in 100 years time, the 1-12 years will roll around again, but it will never be as special as these last 12 have been.

 

12_12_12

 

We will let our grandchildren and great grand children enjoy their 1-12 when that time comes around, but for today, lets celebrate Mission:Repair Style! For this occasion and today only, I have created a special coupon code for…you got it, 12% off! So come on by, save some money and have that broken iPhone repaired! Use coupon code: 121212

Speaking Of A Knock Out

Hey M:R Nation –

I’m at the office a little late tonight catching up on some things and its time to take a quick break. While surfing ESPN, when I came across some highlights from the Manny Pacquiao/Juan Manuel Marquez fight and I have to say, I missed a good one. It was a pretty much an even fight until the 6th round and with one solid right to the face, and a left to the kidney, Pacquiao was down for the count.While I am more of a UFC fan, I can really appreciate a good rivalry and this one of the best.

Ouch!

Speaking Of A Knock Out, did you see our newest price on the iPad 2 Glass Repair Service? That is most definitely a price that is sure to knock out a few of our competitors :-), oh and sure, and we could charge you $10.00+ to ship it back, but why? That just makes no sense.

I hope everyone enjoys the remainder of their Monday night, I’ll be here at the Mission:Repair headquarters working away.

Cheers, Troy
