We’re in the heart of vacation season here at Mission Repair…It’s obvious. We’ve even seen full-size RV’s pull up and wait for iPhone repairs to be done. It’s a serious thing when your iPhone is broken and you’re sitting the back of the family truckster with nothing else to do but play “iSpy”. Which was a family favorite for me as a kid because we didn’t have portable electronics!
For everyone that is on the road (we had one family stop in from Texas this week to bring in their iPad) and remember that there is no appointment necessary ;-)
Travel safe…and remember that if you are on the road this weekend that it’s Father’s day so make sure that dad gets a break from the wheel. Take him to breakfast and then get him to a hot tub at the next stop. He’ll appreciate it.
Speaking of Father’s Day, we will be sending out our Father’s Day newsletter later today with some awesome specials, so stay tuned and check your email inbox shortly!
Thanks…I wonder what Father’s Day has in store for me? Kids, are you reading this?
Tayler (you might have met her working at Mission Repair Express) was managing the front desk yesterday and saw a large bird walking by the front window…only to be followed by an entire army of geese that were apparently unafraid of the traffic, construction and people that occupy the downtown area of Mission, Kansas!
This is an unusual sight for such a busy street. There are thousands of cars that pass in front of our store each day and it’s not a good place for wildlife in my opinion. These geese were unaware of the apparent danger…either that or they really wanted to do some window shopping in our neighborhood!
Speaking of window shopping, the City of Mission is starting a contest shortly that involves all of the businesses in the shopping district. This will really only apply to our local customers that visit us in Mission, Kansas however if you’re one of the lucky shoppers that enter a drawing (you’ll be able to enter at our shop – Mission Repair Express very soon!) the city will be raffling off $100 in gift certificates to shop in the downtown area every week.
Again, Mission Repair Express will be a “drawing signup location” and there’s no cost to enter the drawing. It’s just for fun and to boost your shopping allowance when you win! More details coming soon about this contest, we’ll be in touch.
Over the weekend, we had 41 action news of Kansas City come by and interview Ryan about the newly instated Digital Millennium Copyright Act. This act makes it illegal to unlock your phone on your own behalf. You now must contact your carrier to unlock your device for use on another carriers network.
Ready For My Close Up!
Lights, Camera, Action!
This law is set for phones that are sold from January 26th 2013 and on. So if you have a smartphone purchased before this date, unlock away! How will they monitor this? We have no clue. What will the penalty be? We have no clue. But to stay on the safe side, I would recommend going directly to your carrier for this service for the time being.
There will be many business and services effected by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and we certainly feel for them. Will this Act last for a long period of time? Only time will tell, but until then, stay safe and know what the laws are when dealing with iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S III, HTC EVO or any other Smartphone software!
If you come here often, you know that I like to occasionally showcase all of the new services that we offer. I would like to do that again for you right here and now. So please, kick up your feet and check out all the new and reintroduced services shown on the Mission:Repair Blog over the last few weeks!
I was walking by my technician supervisors desk this morning and I noticed him working this beauty. Its the HTC EVO 4G LTE and boy do I love this phone! It is super sleek and a great evolution of its past self. As I sat there and watched him repair this, I noticed something… This is not an easy repair! Jake being the professional he is, made it look easy. However, I do not wish this repair upon anyone that hasn’t done it before. Let me give you fair warning now. Do not try this repair at home and LET US REPAIR IT FOR YOU!
The HTC EVO LTE is just one phone in a new string of HTC smartphones that they are pumping out to keep up with the likes of Apple and Samsung. I have my technicians and sales staff at the ready if you want to walk-in or ship your HTC EVO 4G LTE out to us, we have your 6 and we will get it repaired and back in your hands in no time.
