Happy Halloween

October 31st, 2011


It’s important to love what you do. If you don’t, work becomes meaningless and life uneventful. Here’s yet another reason why I love what I do. Thanks to our team members who dressed up today and make our workplace a great place to go to everyday.

Happy Halloween!

iPhone 4S Echo Problem During Calls Fix

October 19th, 2011

We’ve received several reports of customers having problems with voice echo on their iPhone 4S. The echo does not immediately start during a call, but instead appears anywhere from 2-12 minutes into a call. Multiple iPhone 4S changes and headset changes produce the same results.

The problem appears to be software related.

Temporary Fix

When experiencing the echo, turn the speaker function on and off. This should clear up the issue temporarily and will have to be repeated every time the problem occurs.

Other Possible Fixes (Unlikely to help, but worth a shot)

Disconnect Your Headset
Restart Your Phone
Restore Your Phone

If you’re having similar issues, please let us know the specs on your carrier and models. The problem seems to be independent of size or color at this point, but the more information we have, the better.

** If you restored from a previous backup, please note that in the comments. If you started fresh, please note that as well. If you did restore, please also note what device you upgraded from.

Introducing Macbook Air Display Repair and Conversion Program

October 6th, 2011


Today we’re proud to announce two new repair services for the 2010 Macbook Air Displays.

Macbook Air Display Repair Program – Repair cracked, broken, defective or scratched LCDs on the 2010 Macbook Air

Details on the programs can be found at the program landing page: Macbook Air Display Repair Program

The LCDs for the Macbook Air 2010 and 2011 models have been notoriously difficult to source in any type of quantity. As a result, if you crack, break, or scratch your display on a 2010 or 2011 Macbook Air, you’ve been left with very few choices in terms of repair. Most repair options can cost close to the value of the machine.

We’ve been hard at work with a partner company for over a year trying to come up with a solution, and we’re finally ready to unveil it.

Starting today, you can send your whole Macbook Air or just the display clamshell to us to replace a cracked, broken, scratched or defective LCD. Pricing is below:

Sending in Display Clamshell Only for LCD Repair

11” Models — $279

13” Models — $329

Sending in Whole unit for LCD Repair

11” — $329

13” — $379

As with all of our products and services, this service is warrantied for 1 year.

In addition to the LCD repair service, we’re also announcing an additional service to convert your current Macbook Air LCD from Glossy to Matte.

If your display is not cracked, broken, or otherwise defective and you ONLY WANT a matte to glossy conversion the costs are:

11″ or 13″ Clamshell Only $149
11″ or 13″ Sending in Whole Unit $199

If your display is broken and you only want an LCD repair WITH the Matte conversion:

Sending in Display Clamshell Only for LCD Repair
11” Models — $354
13” Models — $404

Sending in Whole unit

11” Models — $404

13” Models — $454

You can get more information and schedule the service at the link below:
