    Hi, I have a brand new ipad 2 with broken glass and wondered if you could possibly direct me to your friend's Apple store in Brisbane as that's where we live and I would like to enquire about getting it fixed if it cant be replaced. I would like a reliable retailer to go to please. Thanks for any assistance you could provide.

    leelai is a frequent poster, so I'm sure you'll hear soon. But any Apple Store will replace them as a 'once in a lifetime' goodwill gesture. As you'll have read, it's unofficial, unacknowledged, "we'll deny it if you ask us" policy.

    iPad 2 glass ("digitizer") cracked

    I just addressed this today. I dropped my iPad 2 yesterday--while it was in its Targus case--and it cracked the screen. The "only option" given to me at the Apple Store was to replace the entire iPad. They said they do not repair cracked screens any more. Since I only purchased this last month, their best offer was a 10% discount. The total bill was $263. It's an iPad 16GB WiFi only. Price probably varies depending on device.

    I hope this helps prepare any others with a similar predicament. The good news is if you back up in iCloud, everything--including apps and other settings--will transfer to the new iPad.

    If you paid $263, you got way more than a 10% discount off standard retail price for a 16GB wifi-only model. At standard retail, it's $499. People who are being charged for replacements are reporting that they're paying 50% of retail, which is what it sounds like you did, with maybe some tax on top.

    You were just on another thread talking about having scratches on your iPad and asking how to fix. You broke your screen, had it repaired and then scratched it? Yikes.
