My dog ate my homework – and my iPhone?

Hello there, this isn’t a new joke, I understand that. “My dog ate my homework” has been used as an excuse to get out of turning in assignments in class. But “my dog ate my iPhone” is a newer concept. Do these things taste good?

I’m, not sure if this device was actually eaten by a dog, but it’s definitely something that needs to be repaired…and repaired fast! We’ve got the team to do it; this phone will certainly need a new front glass and back case and Lennie is on it right now.

If you find yourself with a device that’s been “mangled”, just give us a call. We’ll do what we can to get you back into shape.

Take care, Ryan

iPhone dropped into a Frosty. Tastes delicious!

Hello everyone,

I was sitting next to Melanie when she took a phone call from a customer that said that she dropped her iPhone into a Wendy’s Frosty and it stopped working…BUMMER!

Now don’t get me wrong, I love a Frosty from time to time, however I’ve never dropped anything into one – but I’m sure that I’ve dropped some Frosty on my shirt at some point!

So it becomes a question of “Can Mission Repair Fix it?”

The bottom line is that we can fix anything. In some cases, it can become too costly – I’ve used this example before – let’s say if it was run over by a truck. Yes it can be repaired, but if we have to replace EVERYTHING, we’d probably just advise our customer to obtain a new device altogether.

However thousands of times each month, we service, repair, and deliver devices back to happy customers repaired…which is why we are in business. Can we repair an iPhone that was dropped into a Frosty? You betcha. Want to get on our good side? Drop off your iPhone with an extra Frosty for me and I’ll take care of business 😉

Ok, after all of the Holiday food that I’ve been eating lately, I don’t need a Frosty right now. I need a salad.

To all of us that have overeaten a bit this holiday season; the New Year is right around the corner and my resolution will be announced soon. I’m thinking a new gym membership is in my future, maybe I’ll see you there.

Take care, Ryan

Tower, this is Ghost Rider requesting a flyby.

Good morning friends-

I was outside last night finishing up some yard work when I heard the humm of of “something” in the air. It got louder, louder, until this “powered parachute” buzzed right behind my house. I was able to get my camera out to snap a pic:

It was pretty cool. I’ve often thought about getting into this sport even through it looks a little dangerous. I’ve heard that it’s relatively inexpensive, and easy to store the machine- basically it does just fold up and will load onto a flatbed trailer for storage. Ok, take the danger factor out of it and it does look pretty great!

Well it got my dogs all riled up as well. My “scaredy dog” Layla hustled out to the edge of the fence so she could bark at this guy flying by. She’s such a tough girl 😉

How was your weekend? Anything spectacular happen? Did you take your motorized parachute out for a spin as well? If you did, let me know! I want to learn more about this; maybe it’s in my future.

You know how Amazon has been talking about “drones” delivering your products in the future? Maybe one day I’ll deliver freshly-repaired iPhones to my customers on one of these things. Ok, maybe not.

Have great day, Ryan

Hummingbird and a coupon inside!

Good morning friends-

I woke up this morning and took a walk outside to the hummingbird feeder just outside my door. There were several birds around the feeder and all but one flew away as I approached…

I got a little closer…and a little closer…until this little guy just didn’t want to fly away. So I snatched up my iPhone and clicked the picture above. I was about a foot away from this cute avian so he posed and I started snapping away. I got a few of him fluttering about but in this pic he stopped and “eyeballed” me just as I was “eyeballing” him.

He probably thought “wow, look at how close this guy is getting to me. They never get that close, they always run away”. 😉

At the very least I thought the picture came out well so I wanted to post it for all to see!

Did you know that it’s National Tequila Day?

Good afternoon friends; I just found out that it’s National Tequila Day today…

My buddy Tony told me about the “holiday” today. Well since I’m working, and quite frankly I’m not a huge tequila fan as it is, I’m not sure how much celebrating I’ll be doing in honor of this day. However it was news to me so I thought I’d share it with you!

iPhone 5S. Glass is tougher; but…

Hi folks,

I’ve needed to take a 2 day hiatus from my blogging. That’s more like 2.5 days since it’s Wednesday afternoon and I’m just now getting to my first post of the week. Personally it was a tough weekend because I injured my back so I’ve been down and out for a couple of days – but today I’m moving around pretty good. I think I have a MILLION emails to attend to, so I need to make this post short and sweet.

We’ve already been seeing iPhone 5S with cracked glass come in. It’s true. Troy blogged and took a few pics start to finish about the 5S, and from a repair standpoint, this unit is not for the “weak” technician. I think that this service is going to separate the “men from the boys” because it’s just not as simple as one might think. For those trying to perform this repair, you’ll know exactly what i’m talking about soon!

Never fear, we are the Innovators in the Industry, and we’ve got this service solved and are performing these repairs while our customers wait. No appointment necessary!

We know that if you walk in to our store or call in for a mail-order repair from anywhere in the country to have your iPhone 5S screen repaired you’re not in a good place. The iPhone 5S screen is supposed to be tougher than it’s predecessors; and it probably is. It’s just not tough enough to drop on concrete. We can prove it and we wouldn’t dare demonstrate it.

Just remember Mission Repair when you’re in need of an iPhone repair. I’ve been performing iPhone repairs longer than anyone in the industry despite what any other repair center may claim. I know the business, understand our customers, and appreciate every one of them. That’s why we’ve been voted the #1 repair site for the 6th year in a row – isn’t it strange the the iPhone has also been out for 6 years now?

It’s no coincidence.

I’ll be back soon with more info from all of us at Mission Repair, and personally from me to you I hope your holiday season has started out on the right foot!

Take care, Ryan
