iDisappointed - iPad just stopped working
New to this site. Didn't know where else to turn to try and troubleshoot my iPad problem. Hope someone out there can help. Received the original iPad in December 2010 for birthday from my husband. Bought the 32G so it was around $700, but did not buy the extended warranty. This is our 5th Apple product and we have never had any problems, so we thought we'd be throwing money away. 111 days after the manufacturers 1 yr. warranty, the iPad became unresponsive. Took it to the Apple store, they reset it (lost everything!), then it started popping some pixels of stuff and stopped working again. Said it was for sure a hardware issue but that we were out of luck because we were 111 days over. It would cost us $350 for a new one. I left in tears...and in shock just last week! Now I'm sitting on an unusable iPad and I'm trying to figure out how after spending $700 could I just be out of an iPad now? Any thoughts on how I can get this replaced without it costing me another $350?
