iPad Screen Repair Center – yes, in your hometown.

Good afternoon-

Did you know that we can repair your iPad, even if you’re located in Denver, Colorado? But what if you live in Austin, Texas? Or maybe Atlanta, Georgia?

Mission Repair DOES take walkins at any of our locations with no appointment necessary, but the main core of our business is still mail-in repairs. In fact, we can pick up your device even if you live in Concord, California. We will take the guesswork out of mail-in services, and it’s one of the reasons we can keep our prices low. In fact, we cover the entire 48 States top to bottom and on a daily basis it’s good to get to know a customer that lives in Boise, Idaho. We chat on the phone, decipher what is wrong with your iPad, have it picked up from your location, repair it, and deliver it back to you.

There’s no better way to get an iPad, iPhone, iPod or other hand held electronic device repaired if you don’t want to battle the traffic, lines and congestion of a retail location.

Yes, of course you can stop by one of our locations and drop it off as well…But since we don’t have a store in every town across the country we make things simple by completing your repair remotely.

Interested in sending your device into us? Give us a call 866-638-8402 and we’ll be glad to help you out!

Take care, Ryan

Black Friday in July!

Hello again friends,

I’ve heard a little rumor going around about a lot of retailers are talking about Black Friday in July- and it’s coming up this Friday the 25th!

What is Black Friday?

The day After Thanksgiving (Friday) is known as Black Friday. This also typically starts the holiday shopping season. Almost all stores come out with blockbuster sales and specials and early bird specials to attract consumers to their stores. People can stand in line hours before store is opened just to grab the bargain of the year. Almost every store has something that interests every one. For bargain hunters black Friday might be their biggest festival of the year.

So why is there a Black Friday in July? I think it was developed by retailers to give the bargain minded consumer another chance to get a great deal half-way through the year instead of waiting for the turkey to wear off. So we’re joining in!

Yes, Mission Repair will have some amazing never-before-seen-so-low specials this Friday 7/25/14. However we will only share them via our newsletter so you need to sign up now to get the savings!

Stay tuned – our first Black Friday in July is coming this week!

Take care, Ryan

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX Repairs announced!

Hello friends –

With all the talk of Amazon’s new services lately – I just had to revisit some of our repairs that we offer and let you know that we have launched a few new services today.

Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7″ Kindle Screen Repairs!

There is some confusion between the Kindle HD and the Kindle HDX. These are 2 totally different devices and we should talk about them! It’s not just one thing; there’s a lot going on here:

Displays

The Amazon Kindle Fire HDX comes in two sizes: 7-inch and 8.9-inch, offering a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution display (323ppi) on the 7-inch and 2560 x 1600 (339ppi) on the 8.9-inch. At that resolution, the 8.9-inch HDX has the sharpest display around, while the new 7-inch HDX matches the Nexus 7 (2013) for pixels.

The Kindle Fire HD (2013) – that’s the new version – has a 7-inch 1280 x 800 (216ppi) display, whilst the Fire HD 8.9-inch has a 1920 x 1200 (254ppi) display. Naturally, the higher pixel density displays of the HDX will give you more detail, with the 8.9-inch HDX looking like the real star in the pack.

Power and battery

The Kindle Fire HDX models have a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, the same sort of thing as you’ll find in the LG G2 or Samsung Galaxy Note 3. That means oodles of power on offer on both the 7-inch and 8.9-inch models, both with 2GB of RAM.

The Kindle Fire HD models both at 7 and 8.9-inches settle for a 1.5GHz dual-core processor. The HDX will be faster, but Amazon also reports that the Kindle Fire HDX will offer slightly longer battery life. Not bad considering the step-up in display and power. It’s aided by a new software feature designed for reading, which shuts down non-essential hardware to extend the battery to 17 hours if reading alone.

Cameras

The camera isn’t the most important part of a tablet in our opinion, but you still see a large number of people using them to take photos: the Kindle Fire range hasn’t had a rear camera until now. The Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 has a rear 8-megapixel camera, as well as a front-facing camera.

Both the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 and the new Kindle Fire HDX 7-inch offer front-facing cameras, while the new 7-inch Kindle Fire HD (2013) has no camera at all.

Connectivity

Kindle is known for being well connected and the wide range of clever features, like Whispersync, that come with it. The new 7-inch Kindle Fire HD (2013) is the only model without the option for 4G. It also misses out on the dual-antenna Wi-Fi that the others offer. If connectivity is key, so you might want to avoid the 7-inch Kindle Fire HD and pick one of the others.

Software

The Kindle Fire HDX and 7-inch Kindle Fire HD (2013) debut with the latest Fire OS3 software. The Kindle Fire HD 8.9 doesn’t have that update and there’s no word on if it will.

Fire OS3 brings a range of features to the Kindle Fire HD and HDX family, including a new Mayday button for instant customer service support, second screen features, better touch response, X-Ray for music, a new reading mode that powers down hardware that’s not needed to extend the battery life and much more.

Repair Price

This is where Mission Repair steps in. While the HDX is a little more expensive to repair than the Kindle Fire HD, it’s still simply more cost effective to repair than replace. Give us a call if you have any questions at 866-638-8402. Thanks!

HTC One M7 Charging Port Repairs? Of course!

Hello friends- we are more than just an Apple Repair Center (nothing against all of the loyal Apple iPhone, iPod and iPad users out there), but we have an extensive line of Android repairs as well.

I reached into our “bag” of repairs and pulled out the HTC One M7 Charging Port repair. Why?

This is what the part looks like...you're going to need a new one of these to get your M7 to charge the battery again!

This is what the part looks like…you’re going to need a new one of these to get your M7 to charge the battery again!

Well we can fix these, that’s why…and a lot of people don’t realize that we can perform a full gamut of services on an extensive list of phones. What we’d do for this repair is receive your phone, remove the failing charging port, install a brand new OEM assembly, test it with a known good charger- and make sure that you’re back in business again.

If you’re not sure you can always send your Android phone into us under a diagnosis, and there’s no charge for that; but we can get your device in here and tell you what’s going on with it so you have the information to make an educated decision about your repair with no obligation! We will be happy to let you know!

What else can we repair? Check back in this blog as I pull random repairs from the “bag” and keep you informed. Have a great weekend!

Kindle Unlimited…good news!

Hello friends- I’ve found myself using my Kindle to read more and more lately.

I know, who reads any more, right? Well apparently reading is still a good way to spend quality time in life, and I happen to agree. In fact, Dandra is a librarian, so reading is not an option at the Arter house ;-)

Today, Amazon officially released “Kindle Unlimited” which allows the customer to enjoy unlimited access to over 600,000 titles and thousands of audiobooks on any device for just $9.99 a month. There’s a 30-day free trial as well which is really nice! Don’t worry Dandra, I already signed us up.

Amazon is giving you the freedom to explore through reading with their new program. 600,000 titles. Tons of options. I’m in – I thought that I’d pass this along.

Have a good day, Ryan
