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

My iPhone 5 arrived!

Hello everyone – I’ve been waiting patiently for my iPhone 5 to show up. Rather than brave (and suffer) running to the Apple Store a few days ago, I preordered one from Apple.com with an estimated delivery of 9/27/12. Well it did arrive a day early which was a nice surprise. . .and it came directly from China via UPS rather than a local USA based Apple distribution center. Apparently shipping these out to individuals via International Shipping was a better choice for them so we could get our devices quickly!

Just for information’s sake, the shipping address originated in ZhengZhou, China.

Well here it is in all of it’s 5th Generation Glory! I opted to go with the black version and I must say that out of the package it’s a very good looking phone. I am worried about the scratches that some people are talking about on the bezel around the screen, but I’m hoping that a Clear-Coat screen protector will help me out with that!

I plugged it into my MacBook Air and like magic (and like the last versions of the iPhone) things started happening with iTunes! Truth be tod, it said to “connect to iTunes” and I had to actually click on my iTunes application in my dock. I would have thought that it would have just opened for me, but not a big deal!

I’m thrilled thus far and look forward to getting some good use in over the next couple of weeks. If I have any further comments about it I’ll post them here!

So while I’m on the topic, we have added the iPhone 5 screen repairs onto our website and as luck would have it (or should I say bad luck), we have already sold a repair to a customer. He had his phone for 1 day, dropped it, and cracked the screen. His phone will be here tomorrow and we’ll fix him up – so just remember that if you have any glass breakage on your new iPhone 5 or if you find that your iPhone 5 has a cracked screen the next time you pull it out of your pocket, Mission Repair wil take care of ya.

Alight then, once I get my Angry Birds app back on my new phone I’ll be complete again 😉

Talk to you soon, Ryan
