Summer is Here

Water Plus Technology

Happy Summer! The kids are out of school, the swimming pools are open and 4th of July celebrations are approaching; Life is good. We’re definitely feeling the summer heat here in Kansas and it’s only going to get hotter.  The season for fun in the sun is here, so please remember that water and technology just don’t mix!

Despite the rising temperatures, we know that your world suddenly freezes when you see one of your gadgets falling into the water. Sometimes, accidents happen and our devices end up going for a swim along with us. If you react quickly, you may be able to salvage your water damaged device.  Try some of these quick tips for your best chance at water-damage revival:

  • Make sure the device is powered off ASAP and don’t plug in your device to charge
  • Gently dry off the exterior with a paper towel
  • Don’t shake it, blow into it, or press any keys as this will push water further into the device. Try to leave it alone as much as possible. Don’t try to dry the phone with heat – excessive heat is damaging as well.
  • Walk in to one of our local Mission Repair stores or visit our website to get started with a FREE 24-Hour diagnosis today.  Water damage does not always mean your device is forever dead and without hope. We will take a look at getting your device back to normal so you can enjoy the rest of your summer!

 

I Washed My iPhone. What Do I Do?!

This is a question we often get from customers who have dropped their smartphone or iPod in the toilet, sent it through the washing machine, got caught in a rainstorm, etc. If your device has water damage we can help! Before thinking about replacing the device, we have the potential to fix it for a fraction of the cost of a new phone.

If your iPod or Smartphone has been submerged in water call Mission:Repair at 1-866-638-8402. We will do a Free Diagnosis. This allows one of our certified technicians to take a look at your device and assess the damage. In some cases the device will need a logic board repair. The logic board is the main motherboard inside the device and all other components are connected to it. So, once we get a working logic board back in your unit, there maybe other small components that need to be replaced such as the home button, power button, battery, etc which we will address.

Repairing your logic board is a cost effective way to save your device instead of purchasing a new one! So the next time you hear someone say ‘I dropped my phone in the toilet’ send them our way and we will do everything we can to get your device back to working condition!

There is a small chance that the damage to your device is too extensive and the logic board comes back unrepairable. In this case you DO NOT pay for the repair service!  How can you beat that for service? So, whether you have a liquid damaged iPhone, iPad or other device – be sure to call us at 1-866-638-8402 before looking into purchasing a new one.
