You don't need a lawyer for small claims court in Canada as well.

I see that you are progressing with this on a point of principle and as you can see from the replies you have gotten thus far that the consensus is that you will not win. Yes Apple will need to hire lawyers for your case but it is but a drop in the ocean for them whereas for you the price will be much higher in terms of time, money and effort on your part and that's not including the emotional toll that this is having on you. I admire the need to seek justice but I really feel that it is misguided in this case.Originally Posted by sarky123

The whole thing sounds really like a troll to me. I'm sorry.
We have had tremendous success working with Apple on support issues that were outside of the ordinary including delayed opening of iPads and service out of warranty.
Though anything is possible, this just sounds like a troll to me.
What is a troll. I find you to be arrogant and foolish. The next time you make a large purchase and it does not work, think about your attitude here. I have 72 employees that each have a laptop, desktop, and cell phone. I assure you that none of them will ever be from Apple. All I wanted was an IPad that worked and sought nothing more!!!!!
Let me leave aside all the critical posts - I posted a small guide here with regards to trickle charging the battery in your non-functional iPad - based on the chemistry in lithium batteries, my suggestion had a reasonable chance of working. In all seriousness, did you actually try it, please? If so, did you get anywhere with it, or not?
And as this seems to be the only piece of advice that addresses the actual problem, I think it's time to close this thread. Here's a rule reminder.Originally Posted by janner43
