iPhone 4 and 4S Repairs: More Than Just Screens!

Hello M:R Nation –

The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S are some of the most popular smartphones ever unleashed onto the public. The sales numbers alone on these devices could fund a small country for a couple of years. Something even more impressive is the amount of people that have deceived to hold on to their iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S, even after the newer models have been released. I have to admit, I am not one of those people. I didn’t really learn my lesson until the iPhone 5. I am proud to say that I have stuck with it and have not upgraded to the iPhone 5S!

With so many folks holding strong to their iPhone 4 and 4S, you can imagine the damage that can be caused overtime by just living your life. A drop here and a bump there can really wear down your phone. Not to mention the moving parts in your device will naturally go kaput over time. When I say “Moving parts” I mean the things that you interact with on your iPhone that give you a reaction… Like your home button, power button, vibrate switch, volume buttons. Those are all mechanical input components that over time will unfortunately fail due to normal use.

Spooky Tid-Bit!!

Technological Geniuses!

That is what I like to call myself anyways! This weeks Tech Tid-Bit is going to be a little different than last weeks. I wanted to have a little bit of fun since I am all in the Halloween spirit here at Mission Repair.  I always look forward to this time of year. Getting to see all the new creations people construct for their costumes just blows my mind sometimes! So to keep this weeks blog entry somewhat about Technology and somewhat about Halloween I went searching for some cool costume ideas. I stumbled upon one of the most ingenious ideas yet. Welcome the real life pulsing flesh wound!!

I found out that the man who created this idea was once a NASA employee. I actually downloaded the application that he created off the App Store and I am planning on using one of his awesome real life images! Now back to the technology part. You can simply use your iPhone, Android, or iPad. All you do is cut a whole in your shirt to display the image you want to use. He does offer some pretty cool accessories to go with this App as well. I may just have to check those out! If you plan on using your own accessories there is a chance for costume failure and that iPhone, iPad, or Android device may just slip out and hit the ground. Good thing you won’t have to worry about getting it fixed! Give us a call! We will get you taken care of right away!! Until next week techies! Happy Halloween!!

Today’s iPhone 4S Tid-Bit!!

techtidbit

Hello Fello Techies!

Just as promised I am back with my very first Tech Tid-Bit! As a repair technician I always find new and exciting things while fixing up all these gadgets and I feel like I have enough information to share to last a lifetime! For now I will just be sticking to what I found most interesting from the last week.

Well here it is. Repairing the wonderful iPhone 4S. For some of you this repair is very straight forward and easy to do. If you have never done a screen repair before I don’t recommend attempting it unless you have full knowledge of what you are doing. It can be very disheartening to damage the logic board or other components inside the unit. Needless to say no matter how good you think you may be at repairing the screen on this device there seems to be one small issue that simply puzzled me. I would power the unit up, test all the functions on the unit and WHAM! The sim card would not pick up any sort of signal. The iPhone continued to just say “Searching”. Thinking there may be an issue with the customer’s sim card, I went ahead and installed my very own sim card and it still would not work. “Uh-oh! What did I do? Did I ruin something? Surely not! I’m an expert! This could never happen to me!”

Searching iPhone
Sure enough, there happens to be a small software issue with the iPhone 4S that causes this issue when you unplug the battery from the logic board. Does it happen every time you ask? No it doesn’t. But when it does happen I have found a solution to get the logic board to recognize the sim card.

With the iPhone powered on go ahead and remove the sim card and sim card tray. Once the sim card has been removed go ahead and shut down the iPhone until it has completely powered down. After the phone has powered down go ahead and install the sim card/sim tray. When you have done this go ahead and power the iPhone back on. The iPhone will boot to the main screen and will continue for about 30 seconds to say “Searching”. After those short seconds of waiting you should be receiving full service and your carrier should be displayed in the top left corner.

After figuring this out my blood pressure sure did go down and I was able to breathe a sigh of relief. I’m sure some of you out there have had this issue and I’m sure you all were wondering what could have happened. I hope this little Tid Bit of knowledge will help some of you techies out there. If it doesn’t there certainly could be a bigger issue. If you have questions on this process and would like to talk to me directly feel free to shoot me an email at jake@missionrepair.com or give one of our great customer service reps a call at 866-638-8402. If we can’t help you over the phone we may ask to send your device to us here at Mission Repair and we get it handled in no time! 24hr turnaround time! Can’t beat that! See ya next week!
