    No guarantee

    Not guaranteed that Apple will fix or replace. In fact we have seen instances where Apple did not replace a broken IPad. There also might be a time when, since the device in question is no longer considered new, Apple might not fix or replace since they have completed their research on the durability of that model...

    Yea Apple!

    This weekend I was dumb and put my 32g iPad2 on the roof of my car as I moved stuff around so my sister could sit down. I forgot and pulled off, only to remember about 5 mins later. I turned around and found my iPad in the road face down. My screen was SHATTERED!
    This morning I took it to the apple store and the dude said he could replace it for free this one time. So, I got a new iPad, it was all I could do not to dance around the Apple store...lol

    I live in the UK but work in the states, i had a iPhone 4 that i bought in the uk and had a few problems with it, was my fault. Took it into the apple store in Miami and they replaced it free of charge. I was so surprised and shocked. I Think that is great CS.

    Still not sure if its a refurb or brand new. The iphone looked brand new but only came in a plastic case.

    The devices apple supply after the 14 day ownership period are "remanufactured" units! I had 3 of them and finally got on that worked properly

    How did you find out they are remanufactured? And that after 14 days that's what you get? And are you referring to IPhones, IPads or all Apple returns? Mine was about three weeks and I got a NEW IPad.

    Mine was replaced well after 14 days with a brand new ipad2 that works perfectly. Where did you hear that your 3 iPads were remanufactured?

    Apple's refurbs are the equivalent to a new product in every way but three. The first is the packaging is marked "refurb", the second is they are a bit less expensive if you are buying them (about $100 less for an iMac), and the third is they have been thououghly tested more then once, so they tend to be even more reliable than new products. Apple refurbs tend to be a better deal than new products and I always try to buy refurbs if they are available.

    For the sake of the employees, make an appt. An Apple Store can turn into a zoo in a heartbeat.
