Treat that iPhone like a baby.

Hello friends of the electronics world,

The iPhone 6 is the phone I personally use, which translates to “The iPhone 6 is the phone I drop on a daily basis”. With that being said, I have to tell you that I’ve dropped my iPhone 6 several times and it’s HAS broken once. This is my FIRST cracked iPhone since they came out! This was a pretty gnarly corner drop too. I was certain it was finally time for me to use our iPhone 6 Glass Repair Service. I am not doing this on purpose. I really dropped this thing on accident and it usually happens when I forget that I set it in my lap when I’m driving…then get out of the vehicle. SMASH!

You'd better baby that iPhone!

You’d better baby that iPhone!

I have come up with some muscle memory reactions when my iPhone slips out of my hands:

  • Foot Cushion – This seems to be my go to reaction when I drop my iPhone. I simply stick my foot out to cushion the fall. This equates to about a 2″ fall after all is said and done.
  • Quick Grab – More often than not, I am able to catch it mid-fall. This is not a great tip, but hey….
  • Jump And Dive – This is just not safe, but I find myself at times diving for my dropped phone. Yes, I have actually found myself on the floor more than once trying to prevent a crack.
  • Walk On Carpet – When interacting with my iPhone, I will often make a point to do so on carpet. I know this is ridiculous, but I have yet to crack my glass on carpet so I’m adding it to the list.
  • Cover My Eyes – I do this most of the time. Now that I think about it, I’m just a lucky guy that just happens to not drop it the right way most of the time.

But until the day comes again, I will continue with my beloved foot cushion and closed eye method which has worked for me through today.

What’s your method of saving your phone? Let me know!

Of course the bottom line is that if you should happen to crack that screen in the event that one of your acrobatic maneuvers doesn’t work, call us at Mission Repair and we’ll get you fixed up fast. After all, we have been awarded the GOLD AWARD by TOP TEN REVIEWS 6 years in a row for our iPhone service. 866-638-8402.

Take care, Ryan

The problem with mail-in iPhone repair solved! How about $0 overnight shipping?

Good afternoon!

It’s turning out to be a mid-80 degree day here in Kansas City and the rest of the weekend is promising to shape up just as well. That’s exciting news!

Did you know that we take walk in customers with no appointment necessary? That’s right, if you need your iPhone fixed you can stop by one of our locations, see one of our friendly sales representatives, and they will get you fixed up in a jiffy. What’s a jiffy? For example: If you bring your iPhone 5S for a cracked screen replacement, we can have it done, repaired, and back in your hands before you have time to run to lunch and back. Yes, it’s that fast.

But did you know that we also take mail-in service from all over the country? In fact, we service every address in the United States and have been doing so coming up on 7 years now.

I know that there are issues with mail in service. One of them is that you want the shipping to be FAST. But FAST means EXPENSIVE. So how do we conquer this issue?

We currently charge $9.99 for return OVERNIGHT shipping via FEDEX on all cell phone, smartphone, iPhone and xylophone repairs. Just kidding, we don’t offer xylophone repair, just checking to see if you are still with me. If you know anything about shipping charges, you’ll see that this is an amazing shipping price. However now through Sunday, September 28th, 2014 –

Use coupon code “ONEWAY” to receive a $9.99 discount which makes the OVERNIGHT SHIPPING FREE!
It works for online orders or if you all in to 866-638-8402.

This coupon will work with any device we service and will give you a $9.99 discount on any service or part that we offer as long as your order total is $49 or more.

We’ve solved the “mail-in” issue since you can’t get faster shipping for FREE, why not take advantage now?!?

Have a good day everyone, Ryan

Mission Repair in the News again last night!

Good morning,

It was a long day yesterday of iPhone 6 “stuff”…we’ve now taken several orders from around the country to repair iPhone 6 and 6 Plus screens, PLUS channel 5 news came into our Mission Repair Express location to interview me on the iPhone 6 Plus “BENDING” issue that seems to have surfaced just days after it’s release.

I picked out my two favorite screen shots of me making the funniest faces. If you can’t laugh at yourself, life would be no fun!

Here’s a link to the actual spot that ran last night…it’s kind of fun and also has a glimpse of the work environment at our Mission Repair Express location. Jamie Oberg reported on the iPhone 6 Plus “bendy” issue and was a true professional. We had a great time with the segment and both learned a lot.

Until the next time I get myself ready for the camera, you can rest assured that I’ll be right here behind my keyboard and this blog. Talk to you again soon!
