    I have just cracked the screen on my iPad. I have been looking at options to get it fixed, even considered buying the glass and doing it myself, just not sure I want to go down that road.
    Has anyone used any of the online services before. Is there any of them that anyone would recommend over another. I do have a place locally that will do it for $140.00.
    Thanks for any advice.

    Hello Oh1i and welcome to the forum. We are sorry to have to advise you that this forum is not a venue for canvassing businesses which may provide the type of services you are after.
    The best solution we have for fixing a broken iPad is to make an appointment with the Genius Bar at your nearest Apple will not need your receipt as they can look up all relevant info at the store. They will most probably offer to replace your iPad but for a's normally half of the original cost of the iPad. If this is fine by you, make sure you do a complete backup of your iPad before you go.
    There are other businesses that can do this for you which will probably be cheaper but be aware that this will void your warranty, if your iPad is still under warranty. But then again your warranty would already be voided because of the drop. If you do replace with Apple, your warranty is reinstated. There have been members who have gone the cheaper route then find that their WiFi will not work as this has been damaged by the replacing of the screen.
    In addition, you can also contact Apple customer service. Here are some great web sites to aid you in your repair search.

    For those of you not living in the USA, here is a link whereby you can select your country and then be directed to the Apple site for your country:
