Hi, got my ipad 3 as a 28th birthday present from my dad, the battery lasts 3-4 hours, and takes maybe 9hours to charge. Currently in poland, took it to the ipad service station here in warsaw. They said it would take 5 days, rang up 3 weeks later said they were waiting for some part to come in, could finnaly pick it up after a month. All they had done was upgrade the firmware and said there was no problem. I saw a nick exactly halfway down one edge, that looked like it was done with some sort of tool. The lady showed me the document i had signed, and it said there was a light dent in that place, it was not light, it was more like a little chunk had been cleanly taken out in an attempt to open it somehow, i was not told this when I handed it in, it had been out of its box for maybe a mintue to put the screen protector on before sliding it into its chunky belkin case. I cant really blame appple for this, but the criminal polish service people working in warsaw. When I a use my ipad, plugged in with my official mains charger, i slowly watch my battery trickly down under normail use. Any suggestions? I am waiting for some holiday time to visit the UK so I can see what apple can make of the situation over there, as service there has proven to be excellent in the past. Any suggestions?
