    Question

    What happens when you drop your new iPad Mini onto a ceramic tile floor?

    Answer:

    Question-ipadglassfx1.jpg

    No, it was not in a case. In fact, I had just received my Poetic Slimline case and was heading into my apartment to open the bag containing the case when I dropped it. It landed hard on its corner, not sure the case would have helped. Luckily, I purchased it with my American Express card so I was able to file a claim. Waiting to hear if/how much they will cover. On the bright side, the iPad is still functioning! Already ordered a new one (two week wait). By the way, the case is an AMAZING value for just $10.95 USD! Still can't believe that is all it cost. I got mine from eBay (no , I have no monetary interest in the sale of this case).

    My sincere apologies if this post gives anyone nightmares.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Bad enough to damage a work of art-now you have to wait two weeks for a replacement!

    Update, I heard from American Express and they're covering the full amount of the iPad mini. I was very happy to get this news!

    Great news for you. One of the advantages of purchasing with that card.

    Great news - still have to wait, but it still works so not too bad. Are they having you send the broken one in somewhere when you get the replacement?

    Wow, I didn't know they did that! What are the terms? I might have to get one of those. Do other major credit cards do that?

    Some do and some don't. Check your credit provider for purchase protection.

    It does not give me nightmares. I have had 3 iPhones, I iPod and an iPad 2, I have never dropped one. It just shows you were not holding it very tightly.

    Question

    Thanks for pointing out that he was not holding his iPad tight enough.

    I guess you were there at the time of the incident and had your trusty hand strength meter with you to determine how hard he was holding it.

    This forum is a better place because of you.

    Thanks for that clarification. It was much needed.

    Maybe you can tell me if I'm holding my ... Beep .... Hard enough ?
