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!
I just got finished with an interview with our local news crew about the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus. The crew just left the building:
They were very concerned about the reports of the iPhone 6 Plus “bending” when you insert it into your pocket; which I guess to me sounds a little bit like a feasible situation. Put your phone into your pocket, sit on it, and it bends.
Apparently the issue may be more than that…and since we’ve seen the inside of the iPhone 6 (which doesn’t have much “structural” support like the iPhone 5S does) the plausibility of “bending” is there. We haven’t seen a bent iPhone 6 in our lab yet. Cracked screens, yes…bent phones, no.
Check us on on KCTV 5 today at 6:15, and you’ll see me trying to talk my way out of the iPhone 6 Plus bending issue 😉 Let’s see how they put this one together!
I’ll be back shortly with more info on the iPhone 6 Plus bending problem in a blog later today.
Take care, Ryan
This month we decided to go ahead and extend our Labor Day Sale on iPhone 5S Screen Repairs through the entire month of September. I asked Ryan what he wanted the new price to be and he surprised me by saying $109! I had to double check with him a few times to make sure he was sure. That’s right, during September we have marked iPhone 5S Front Glass Repairs down to just $109 (regular price: $149).
So be sure to tell all of your friends with cracked screens that NOW is the time to call Mission Repair! We’ll repair your iPhone 5S cracked glass in 24 hours (or sooner with our same day service options) and have your device back to you, good as new, in no time. See a better price on this service? Let us know about it!
Have a great day,
Hello friends, sometimes I just don’t know what to say…
But one of my employees, Jake, asked me for a bunch of old Mission Repair shirts. Of course I have a few of each for sentimental value and of course, if Jake wanted to see some of the older shirts – I grabbed them from my closet and handed them over. A few weeks later, I got this:
What a gift!
His wife Julia and her mother put together this huge “Mission Repair” blanket for me that captures a lot of the essence of the business over the years. The light green one on the top left was one of our very first “themed” t-shirts that we bought over 6 years ago. How time flies, and how the colors have changed –
Now, there’s not one of everything in here because I kept a few of the “lone survivors” for myself. There’s a lot of history and I was ecstatic to see how she put this together for me as a gift. We are planning on hanging this masterpiece in the conference room at Mission Repair and hopefully in another 6 years we can make a new one. We are currently in design phase for a new set of threads -I’ll post the new style soon. I’m telling ya- look at the right hand column,second from the bottom- the “I fix iPhones” shirt has garnered more attention than any of them. I try to get my kids to wear them when we go out to dinner. It’s a fantastic conversation starter 😉
Have a good afternoon….thanks Julia.
When I say there’s construction going on at our Mission Repair Express location in Mission, Kansas…it’s true and it’s hit us hard today!
The streets are demolished and the safety cones are up. Please do be careful when you visit this location. It’s a bit of a bear especially since it also started raining today. Yikes, it’s kind of a mess.
But if you read my blog late last week, you might remember that this is constructive. The City of Mission is tearing out the old…and in with the new! We are getting new streets and sidewalks – it’s just our turn at Mission Repair Express. They knocked down all of the mature trees which bums me out a bit- but they are replanting with more trees than ever with with more planters and beauty than the city has ever seen. It’ll be a nice facelift to the City of Mission and a sign of the times. We just have to endure a few weeks of mud and muck.
Thank you for your loyalty to our business and to all of our locations. We are happy to have you, and we’re open normal business hours. I promise you won’t need a hard hat to get into the front door…stop on by and say hi!
Take care, Ryan
