    Did anyone get AppleCare with their iPad? I haven't gotten it but probably will today. Just out of curiosity, I know that apple has that iPad replacement if battery goes dead policy for $99. Can that still be done without AppleCare?

    Yes I think the battery replacement can be done without applecare for $99. I got squaretrade insurance for 3 yrs because they include accident and liquid damage as well as the usual warranty. I have a 3 and 1 1/2 yr olds so accidents and liquids are a part of life.

    I wonder how much square trade is, and is it too late for me to get it?

    yes, the battery is covered for 1 year under standard warranty, applecare bumps it to 2 years, the $99 battery replacement is for out of warranty units.

    Within the first year you don't need applecare to get it replaced.

    Correct. If you don't have applecare you won't have to pay within 1 year...with applecare it's 2.
