Obsolete Apple repairs? That’s not even a consideration at Mission Repair.

Good morning friends,

Did you know that on June 9th, 2015, the products listed below will be classified as either vintage or obsolete in the United States and other countries; you’ll no longer be able to receive support from Apple or the Apple Retail stores:

  • Airport Express Base Station
  • iMac 2007
  • MacBook Pro 15″ 2.4/2.2 GHz
  • MacBook Pro 17″ 2.4 GHz
  • XServe Late 2006
  • XServe RAID Late 2004
  • iPhone 3G
  • iPhone 3GS

This will concern and affect millions of people in the US and abroad (if you’re in California, you might have a little more time); and we see a lot of iPhone 3GS still come through Mission Repair on a daily basis.

All of the products above will officially move to their new status on June 9, 2015, and no longer be supported for repair by Apple Stores or authorized resellers, but Apple continues to offer support by phone for AppleCare customers. 

Never fear, this doesn’t mean that you’re lost if something happens to your trusty device.  You can simply give us a call at 866-638-8402 and we’ll be happy to help you with that “obsolete” or “vintage” device.  That’s why we are here.

Take care, Ryan

iPhone Screen Repair Needs Fulfilled At Mission Repair!

Hello M:R Nation –

Mission Repair is made up of over 40 collective years of experience when it comes to iPhone repair. We pride ourselves on this number and it grows everyday. On a personal note, I can still remember when we waited in line overnight for the original iPhone, once it was in our hands, we quickly disassembled it, mastered reassembling it and the rest is history!

As long as there are iPhones, there will be a need for repair. Mission Repair is a great avenue for iPhone repair for many different reason. Lets take a look at why it is a great idea to choose Mission Repair when deciding on a repair center for your iPhone repair needs.

We take this into consideration when setting a price on a repair service. If you search on Missionrepair.com  or coupon websites, you are bound to find some great coupon codes as well!
  • Our Warranties are among the best in the industry with a 1 year on all of our screen repairs and lifetime on our battery services!

  • Quality Parts and service – When you use Mission Repair, you are receiving the best replacement parts and those parts are being installed by technicians that are professionally trained to do so!

Ok, so that was a fairly long list, but it saves you from having to dig through our website. I think the correct answer to the above question is what iPhone screen do we not repair? The answer to that is simple: we repair the all of  ’em! And guess what… Once the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C hit the market, we will be repairing those as well!

Keep in mind that screens are just the start of what we offer and just the start of what could actually go wrong with your iPhone. Unfortunately, we have seen every component on an iPhone fail, break, bust and crash at one point in time. Because of this, we decided long ago to be a FULL SERVICE repair center that would not only specialize in screen repair, but in case replacements, headphone jack repairs, camera repairs, dock port repairs, speaker replacements, all the way down to component level repairs on logic boards!

Thats right, if its broken, we can and will fix it! If you have something other than a screen issue, here is a great place to start your search for a remedy: Mission Repair Full Service Repairs! 

Let me leave you with this, we understand when you are dealing with a damaged iPhone, its a huge inconvenience and it practically puts your life on hold. The way you communicate, your school work, your job, your entertainment and your treasured photos are all in that iPhone. You don’t want to be without it for weeks. You need it working correctly and you need it back in your hands ASAP! We at Mission Repair know this and will work tirelessly to have your iPhone back in your hands in days, not weeks! If you are in the Kansas City area, we can have it back to you in hours! Now, if we can just finish our teleportation machine that we have been working on for the last 3 years completed, we will set records with our turn around time!

Cheers, Troy

 

 

My iPhone 5 Is No Longer Broken…And No Longer Mine!

Hello M:R Nation –

Earlier last week I wrote about my broken iPhone 5 and the dismal state it was in. Luckily, my iPhone 5 was still warranty and I was able to request service from Apple for the issues. I had mentioned in that post that I would talk about my experience and so here I go.

After receiving the box from Apple, I was faced with quite a conundrum… what am I going to use for a phone while I am waiting? Well, I ignored the question until about 4:45pm, because at 5:00pm Fedex would be knocking on the door to pick up all of our daily packages. I was in a panic and did what any respectable man would do in this situation… beg his boss to borrow his old iPhone 3GS for a few days.

Picture Perfect!

Picture Perfect!

With the 3GS in hand, I wrapped up my iPhone 5, packaged it in the provided box and sent it away. All was well, but I had to get creative with my sim card situation. I had a nano sim card. This would not fit in the large sim slot of the iPhone 3GS. I had to take a large sim card, trace the nano sim pattern onto it and cut that section out. From there, I fit in the nano sim and SUCCESS! I was back in the game of digital life.

I have to tell you, I understand that the iPhone 3GS in not that old, but going back to it really made me miss my iPhone 5. It has made me think twice before complaining about the battery life…which I do on a daily basis.

So I pained though the slow processing power and horrible resolution of the iPhone 3GS ( which is only that way because I am used to the 5) for about two days until a package was delivered to me from Apple. What I received was no shock. Apple had completely replaced my phone. It was scratch-less, glowing and beautiful, but just not MY phone. Being in the business that I’m in, I have come to learn that there is a certain sentimental value that personal devices brings and I just experienced it first hand. I remember every drop, every scratch and every picture taken with that phone and I kind of miss it.

Overall, I am happy with my in warranty service experience. It was kind of hard to get it started, but once I was able to order the box, it went off without a hitch. As you can see in the above photo, the iPhone 5 takes perfect pictures and life is good once again! If I ever have an in warranty issue, Apple is the place to take it. If its out of warranty Mission Repair is the only choice :-)!

P.S. The battery life is still horrible on this replacement.

Cheers, Troy

Hello again everyone and good afternoon!

We are at it again. I’ve negotiated some great prices on our 3GS glass screens, and as my previous blog post was titled “Wow. Let’s drop some prices together,” I really meant “some prices”.

Here I am, writing this blog, slashing prices, and trying to be cool for my webmaster to take a candid photo:

Just check out the service on our website for the iPhone 3GS Glass Repair, place your order, and we will handle the rest. From pickup and delivery to your location, 24 hour service, 1 year warranty and GOT REPAIR benefits that stick with your device forever (we are the only repair center in the WORLD that offers this!) It all adds up to the best value on the planet to remedy that cracked 3GS glass. . .

Makes you wonder why you’d ever think of going anywhere else? Over 3,000 happy customers each month and a team of individuals that are committed to making things right – Mission Repair is here for you.

It was my birthday. . .let’s have some cake and 15% off your iPhone Digitizer Repair!

Hello there everyone! I don’t normally talk about my own birthday, but I just had to post a pic of the cake that I enjoyed:

Yes, I know, it “dates” me. I turned 39 yesterday and yes I’ve gone though some of the usual “life thoughts” and reflecting that I always do at birthday time. I’m thankful for my health, family, and friends. The other positive note is that I’m still “30-something” for another year! Yeah, I’m holding on to that one!

OK, the first full week of 2010 is in the books here at Mission Repair. The very first work day of 2010 was a record breaking day for us = most number of orders in a single day. Every time I look at our website stats and our phone lines, I’m very impressed with the way things are progressing for the business. . .it’s going to be a stellar year!

Let’s run a new 15% off special. I’ll take $15% off your iPhone 3G Glass/Digitizer Repair or iPhone 3GS Glass/Digitizer Repair now through 1/22/10. Just use coupon code “ipodcake” and we’ll take 15% off these repairs! Just remember that you cannot use that coupon in conjunction with any other coupon.

Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes yesterday, if I haven’t replied to you yet, I’m workin on it!

Best, Ryan
