    All your posts were really encouraging. I'm actually going to the apple store tomorrow. I'll come back and fill all of you in on the juicy details once I get back.

    Good Luck!! Be cool, be polite, be humble, be respectful and I'm sure it will turn out OK.

    Well, after a very bad experience with my 3Gs two years ago when I, in my innnocence used it outside in the rain, resulting in a dead screen. And I had to pay 360 Euro for a refurbished one, since "water damage is not covered by warranty" I then decided to insure it. As I will do with this iPad. And maybe I should mention we don't have Apple stores yet here in Amsterdam, NL and everything went through my telco T-Mob.
    Alas no JB (yet) since I have a newly purchased iPad2 with 4.3.5. And I was so used to my jailbroken 3GS

    I'm sorry to hear that..I'm amazed there are no Apple Stores in Amsterdam, too.

    Well, it happened exactly the way it was described countless times on this thread. They ordered a new iPad 2 for me (it was out of stock). They even went as far as overnight shipping and allowing me to take my old one home to back up!

    To all the Apple CS folks out there, thank you so much!

    Well, it's even worse: There are no Apple stores AT ALL in the Netherlands. Crazy, isn't it? There are rumours about plans to open a flagship store on a very prominent place in Amsterdam , but it is said that the original opening before the holdidays is postponed till spring 2012. Any similarities with the rumours about the iPhone 5 ? Hmmmm.....

    Yes - that's pretty amazing. I cannot understand why Apple wouldn't have even a single store in your country. I doubt, too, if you'd get the same response from the 'Premium Retailers' there that currently sell Apple products.

    Oh, no way in hell. My earlier post about a rained iPhone is only an example of the ****ty way Apple customers are treated here. Any reseller here apparently is eligable to handle Apple products. Based upon that, many independent service shops repair your idevice for much less than official Apple rates.
