G-day mate. My boomerang skills are a little rusty.

G’day mate. You’d think that I was down under practicing my boomerang techniques with this beauty that we received at the Olathe Mission Repair location this week:

No, that’s not a boomerang. It’s an iPhone, just bent like a boomerang. There’s been a lot of talk about the iPhone 6 bending…but the urban legend that the previous iPhones DIDN’T bend is now confirmed to be FALSE. With enough pressure, they do bend! 😉

This customer was hoping for a good outcome. The fact is that we can repair this; but we are pretty much going to need to replace the entire phone to do so. I think power switch was still good…but everything else from the screen to the battery to the logic board are all toast and dead as fried chicken.

It was a good try…but even Mission Repair has limitations. If you’ve got a “normal” broken iPhone, we’re much better as repairing those than something like this…but it’s worth a shot…at least we can recycle it properly for the customer!

I’m going to go put a few shrimps on the barbie (that’s code for: “keep blogging Ryan”) and head back to work.

Take care, Ryan
