    I agre with you. Selling an irreparable product and with.sharp glass screen and marketing it to kids creates problems on many levels. We were also.disappointed with our dealings with the Genius Bar and manager with.our.cracked.2 mo. Old ipad. Who knew glass was replaceable on iphone but not on ipad. And that the screen is not safety glass.

    You are so lucky! One of my kids must have dropped mine; I had no idea how it got cracked. It cost me $400 and they replaced the ipad.

    Question is how many people drop their ipads from those flimsy apple supplied magnetic covers?

    Hi everyone. I been an Apple Fan for 3 years now. My first ever Apple product was the shuffle from Apple. I love it so much I still have it and I wouldn't change it for the world. Unfortunately my brand new white IPad 2 drop 4 days ago and got a crack on the bottom right side. It's just 1 month old and it was my favorite thing in the world. It is hard to look at it because I love it so much I tread it like my baby. I love the look at it so much, it is always hard to look at it with the crack and you can't do anything about it. I will try to do my best to take care off it and I highly recommend it. Number 1 big fan off Apple.... :-)

    My cracked screen problem and replacement quote at well over half the price of the product new just five weeks ago has finished me with Apple sadly. Phone up for replacement next month and will be Blackberry or Android, not a newer version of my current I-phone.

    If you find another hardware company that will outdo Apple when the owner cracks the screen, please share.

    I'm a consumer mercenary, so am open to switching. I doubt you'll find better CS, but happy hunting and let us know if you can do better.

    I figure Apple is pretty smart about making money, and if they figure they can't make money by replacing hardware for less than they already do, they'd be happy for you and similar customers to go to their competitors.

    I understand that accidents occur and that things become damaged. It has happened to me, when I least expect it, but only after having a device for a few years.

    However,what blows my mind is how quickly one purchases or receives their ipad...and than days/weeks later, it has a broken/scratched screen issue. To me, having such an expensive device deserves care when in use or better yet who is using it. In addition, a protective cover, sleeve or something is also of utmost importance as well from the day you purchase a device like this. Create a protective barrier for it. Perhaps these factors were in place and the damage still occurred. Than in my mind you did the best you could to protect it.

    Money does not come off the money tree for most of us-though I wish it did! The ipad is an expensive device-we all know that. We work hard for our earnings and save for what we want. Maybe considering some of this up front may help to reduce risk of damage so early on. I don't mean to offend anyone here. I feel bad for all that have experienced damaged screens, etc. However, it is hard for me not to think this way when I read some of the comments.

    Just me thinking out loud.

    Yeah!!! I don't get these infantile rants about not getting a free iPad because they or 2 year old Junior broke them. Very new generational entitlement complex / attitude. If I went to apple asking for help with an iPad that I accidentally dropped I would be thankful for any assistance I got with a new one. This does NOT happen with ANY other retailer that I know of.

    All this free iPad stuff is subjective to the location of the store and the manager on duty. Some of us are luckier than others I guess.
