Careful, that iPad is dangerous.

Hello friends, I received this email from a customer a few minutes ago – I want to preface that I’ve already asked the customer for permission to post the email here with a general reply to all of my customers in case it may help someone someday:

“A few days ago I broke my iPad on the kitchen counter. The glass shattered into thousands of tiny little shards. I stupidly swept them into the garbage with my bare hand. I then, more stupidly, brushed my hands together to get rid of any pieces- forgetting that these were bits of glass that could get stuck in my skin. I seems that I got a piece in my finger.

It’s in my thumb, inside of a crease. It looks like a little bump, slightly raised and pink. If I push on it a certain way, it hurts. The little cut the glass made has already scabbed over.

If there is a glass in my hand, could I leave it in there for a few days? I really don’t have time to go to a hospital for a while- but of course, if it’s an emergency, I’ll do it. What should I do?”



Firstly – we’re not doctors here at Mission Repair – but if you get a piece of glass in your hand, there are typically simple ways to remove it. While there may or may not be any long-term effects of “leaving” a piece of glass in your skin, I’d certainly say that there is an advantage to getting it out. It’s not supposed to be there, right? However:

What you can do (which we’ve seen multiple customers do) is to cover your broken iPad screen with tape to “stop” the shards of glass from getting into your hands. See the picture above as we received an iPad in this week from one such customer.

You can stop that iPad from being dangerous to an extent by covering it in overlapping clear tape. Typically, the device will still work (at least temporarily) so it gives our customers “time” to get down to see us or send the device into us.
Otherwise, keep you hands clear of the broken glass and all should be good. Any questions about iPad repair? Give us a call. Need medical help? Time to call the doctor!

Take care, Ryan

May deal of the month? Here you go…

Hello blog readers; it’s a heck of a day here at Mission Repair.  It’s Throwback Thursday, right?

Well, I don’t have much to talk about in the “throwback” arena today, but it’s no secret that Thursdays are usually the slow days for us at the office.   It’s a day to get caught up, to “over deliver” to our customers and to prepare for the following week.  But not today.  Today is completely different and we’re just plain ol’ busy at all of our locations today.

It’s interesting too; the rain is really falling hard here in Kansas but it’s not deterring our walk-in customers one bit.

So I’ve headed out to do a few errands and take a break…I brought my MacBook Air with me, and I’m at our local coffee shop as I type enjoying a cup of coffee and knocking out a few blogs.  It’s some good alone time if you know what I mean.

This month we are offering iPad Air Glass Repairs at the LOWEST PRICE TO DATE.  This means that for the entire month of May, you can enjoy $30 off that next iPad Air screen repair with NO COUPON NEEDED.

With all of the “summer time” preparations going on now, it’s a great time to get that iPad cracked glass repaired before it’s simply too nice out to want to do errands. Remember that this deal is good through the entire month of May, 2015 – no coupon necessary.

Have a great day. Ryan
