    Letting people use it is the thing. I'm not criticizing the original poster, just simply pointing out that this a valuable lesson learned. Nobody is going to treat your iPad the way you do, so think wisely. Also, that's good that apple was willing to give you credit for an iPad that suffered accidental damage. I know a replacement would have been nice but that's a lot better than having to fork over the cash for the total cost of a new one.

    Also Rickt, have you considered putting a warranty on the new one just in case something happens. They say lightening doesn't strike twice, but since you aren't sure who damaged it, it probably wouldn't hurt.

    I never let people use mine, maybe I'm just greedy. I also don't like people around my car, for the same reason. Teacher is right, people almost never respect your property like you do. I always extend my respect for other people's cars by not leaning, touching, or scratching them, but no one ever does the same. I hate when someone comes up to my car and leans on it...little do people know even skin will scratch paint, especially in a desert climate where there is a lot of dust in the air to be rubbed into the clear coat. /rant

    I let people test it out while I supervise and that's it. If they want one, they can stop being cheap pricks and go buy one themselves :) .

    I'm sorry it wasn't Warranty, but at least you can get a replacement for probably less than you could send it to a 3rd party for repair. There are reputable folks in the US (don't know what you have available in the UK) that could repair it all, including removing the dent, but I doubt for less than what Apple wants.

    The person who dented it may not have known they damaged it because of the case; but they certainly know they dropped it, or dropped something heavy on it.

    I hear you Matth3w. I don't like anyone leaning on my car either -- drives the heck out of me and you are so right about the dust.

    I agree, if someone is going to accidentally drop and damage my iPad, I at least want that clod to be me!

    Yep, so you have no one to blame but yourself at least.

    Just thought, do you have contents insurance? If it includes accidental damage you may well be able to claim under it.

    I'm certainly not going to let anyone near it again!

    I don't have the new one yet (they've only just come out here, so there's still a bit of a wait for them) but hopefully I should have a new one by the weekend - I have to give the broken one back to Apple so it won't be going on ebay.

    I didn't have contents insurance, but I am looking for a company to insure the new one with (because I bought the original one in the US and I live in the UK, the specialist iPad insurers won't cover me. Do any of you guys know of a company that will?
