Neither Rain, Nor Sleet, Nor Snow. Well, maybe Snow.

Hello again everyone, it’s getting a tad cool outside at the moment over here at the Mission Repair headquarters.

I just looked at our forecast and it’s going to pretty much snow on us tonight. There’s a blizzard warning all across the Midwest, and Kansas City is going to get caught in it as well. Being Midwesterners, we expect snow. It’s OK, most of us have four wheel drive vehicles and we’re used to the winter weather. But there’s something to be said for the first snow of the year and “getting into the rhythm” of winter. Well, I rode my motorcycle yesterday, and tomorrow it’s going to be 10 degrees with the wind chill. WHAM! Hello Winter!

Here’s tonight’s forecast:

Well, we’ll make it into work, this is not a “closing” type of winter storm, however I would expect delays at the airport which may effect our ability to receive and send FedEx packages tomorrow. We will do our best to ensure that everything is received as quickly as possible, but when Mother Nature strikes, we’re kind of at her mercy!

So wish us luck, and we’ll be in touch. I promise that we’ll blog tomorrow to let you know that business is open and rocking. I just hope that if you’re in the path of the major blizzard system, that you’re prepared. You’ll need water, food, heat, and other items. Check out our sister company Mission Survivor, if you’re ever in need of prepping items!

Take care, talk to you tomorrow. Ryan

Maxpedition’s tagline is “Hard Use Gear” and these holsters and cases are just what you’re looking for if you’re the outdoor adventurous type that wants to protect their precious iPhone or Samsung Phone. I mean, if you’ve broken your phone before and sent it into us at Mission Repair, you know the heartaches and pains of what it feels like to damage your device. Of course we make it as easy as humanly possible to obtain a phone repair, but let’s face it it’s a traumatic experience that is heartbreaking at a minimum!

So take a look at our new business, it may interest you. It’s in a separate location with a separate phone number, with separate employees – so if you’re in the market for any high quality camping supplies or just looking for some items for your Zombie Apocalypse preparations Mission Survivor will take care of you!

OK, I’m back to work, we are filming several new videos today that I want to release soon!

Take care, Ryan Arter

Samsung Infuse: Still On High Demand!

Hello M:R Nation -

We have grown to love many of Smartphones over the past 2 years and the Samsung Infuse is at the top of our “Love List”. It has been with us through the good times and the bad. It has never failed or faltered as one of our top repairs and we see no change in the coming years.

Released in May 15th, 2011, the Infuse is getting close to 2 years old (which translates to about 100 years in smartphone years) is still receiving the newest software updates and is still holding strong compared to those young bucks like the Samsung Galaxy S II and  Samsung Galaxy S III.

I envy the folks that can keep a singular phone for more than a years time. That means I envy ALL of our customers and most people in the world. I have an iPhone problem and I am not afraid to admit it :-)

Let us keep your smartphone running for years to come. There is no need to buy a new phone just because you have a little crack in yours, send it on over to Missionrepair.com and let us fix it up for ya! Just ask the MANY Samsung Infuse owners that have used our services, they’ll tell you whats up :-)

Cheers, Troy

 

“Samsung Repair”? Yeah We Do That!

Good Afternoon M:R Nation -

Mission:Repair has always been known for its Apple repair capabilities and we love that. Apple device repair has always been our strong point and we are very good at it, over the last couple of years, we’ve decided to divert some of our attention to other makes of Smartphone and Tablets, which has proved to be a great decision. It took awhile to get past our Apple fanboy mentality, but with so many HTC, LG, Huawei, Motorola and Samsung devices coming through our doors, we have fallen as in love with all of these companies as we already are with Apple.

 

If you made me pick my favorite (besides Apple of course) it would hands down be Samsung. The products they are creating are amazing. If you ever get a change to see a Super AMOLED screen outside of a Samsung device, you will have a hard time closing your mouth. It is that awe inspiring. So to celebrate my love for these awesome devices, I wanted to share a list of some of our top Samsung repairs.

 

#1 Samsung Galaxy S II (AT&T)

#2 Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch

#3 Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket

#4 Samsung Infuse 4G

#5 Samsung Stratosphere

 

This is just a small portion of the Samsung smartphones that we have the ability to repair for you. For a full list click here: Samsung Smartphone Repair and for all other smartphone services, click here: Full service Smartphone Repairs.

 

Until tomorrow, Troy!

Why Mission Repair? Reason #1093.

Hello there, we know that you have choices when it comes to your repair provider and I will be sharing my “2,000 Reasons to Choose Mission Repair” intermingled with our other amazing blogs. Today’s reason:

Reason #1093 – we can print 20 shipping labels per second.

HIGH SPEED PRINTING! We have such a large volume of repair flow that we were forced to upgrade our shipping solutions and we made the decision to upgrade our printers to these amazingly fast Zebra ZM400 printers. In fact, we got 4 of them to keep up with our demands. These are heavy duty printers that can give us up to 3,000 labels/day – each. OK, we are not shipping 12,000 iPhone packages per day, but it’s on my list of “to-do’s” within my life accomplishments!

We are always trying to improve our processes and speed to keep up with the demand of our customers. It’s what separates us from our competition – if you want to call it that ;-)

There you have it. It’s all about efficiency and technology, and Mission Repair is geared for both. Thanks for reading!

Best, Ryan

One More Day!

Happy Monday M:R Nation -

You wouldn’t believe the amount of emails I received this weekend requesting the “Weekend Coupon Code“! It was quite literally one email after the other. My wife finally asked me why I was looking at my phone so much this weekend, I showed her the blog and the words “You are such a workaholic” formed under her breath:)

I enjoyed receiving so many emails, that I want to continue the onslaught :) I am extending this coupon code for ONE MORE DAY! Follow the same directions that were in my previous blog and save yourself some money!

Cheers, Troy
