Sorry to hijack the thread, but figured I check here first before starting a redundant thread.
Just received a refurbished iPad 1 from Apple on Wednesday (mail order - no where near a retailer besides WalMart - no thanks) It froze, or locked up, or whatever the proper term is Friday, but I was able to connect still with I-Tunes and restored it. It spontaneously rebooted several times this weekend until tonight, when I tried to sync it and I got a "cannot connect" message in itunes (0xE8000068). Now the unit will only display the white apple logo for a minute or two, then go blank, then the logo again. endlessly, going on hour 3 as I type this.
No combination of switch holding changes the situation. Of course apple care is closed and only open at what is for me inconvenient hours.
Is there a way of just getting an RMA or whatever so I can send this lemon back and get it fixed replaced? I can't find crap on the apple website.
Sorry for the bitterness tone, but I keep trying to give apple a chance, but after a disappointing experience with a macbook air, and now this - I'm just no fan of them at all. Thanks very much for your assistance in advance.
