    Unless you purchased the AppleCare + plan,which covers your iPad for up to 2 incidents of accidental damage,you are not covered by the warranty. The standard warranty does not cover accidental damage.

    Thanks for your help friends. I just wanted to know that if I jailbreak my iPad will it void my warranty? I came to know that if iPad has any problem(when jailbreak has done) and should show to apple care, then we can restore it to original firmware and we can get serviced which is under warranty. Is that true? :)

    Yes that is true, you can just remove the jailbreak first if you should ever need to take it back to Apple.

    Just a simple question leelai.Jailbreaking has been said to be legal in the states right?If that is true,then Apple can't complain if you return your device to them jailbroken?

    While jailbreaking your device may be legal,it voids the Apple warranty. Before returning your iPad to Apple for warranty service you must remove the jailbreak.
    Check Leelai's previous comment on this issue, which you quoted in your post.

    It may be legal but Apple doesn't like it at all and it will void your warranty if you do jailbreak. Part of the small print I'd say just like many company warranties that are voided if modifications are made to a product.

    Well iMessage comes straight to mind, but can only be used on iPad, iPhones and iPod's.
    I don't use any others but have a look at this thread, I hope there's something there for you.

    If the iPad is under warranty and the cause of the malfunctioning home button is a manufacturers defect, it will be repaired at no cost to yourself. If you have the AppleCare + plan you are covered for up to 2 cases of accidental damage. Out of warranty repairs are performed by apple for a fee.

    I'm not sure by your last reply if you do have Apple Care + or not....if you do you can claim under this warranty, if not this may be a problem.

    As you have damaged your iPad already your warranty could already be voided because of this.

    But try these steps which will recalibrate your home button.

    Step 1: Launch one of the stock apps on your iDevice (Weather, iTunes, Stocks, etc.).

    Step 2: Press and hold the power button until you see the “slide to power off” prompt, then release the power button.

    Step 3: Press and hold your home button until the the “slide to power off” prompt disappears and the app force quits.

    You should now be on your home screen and your home button should be recalibrated! Recalibrating your home button this way will work on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

    If this doesn't work try a reset
    Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. Let us know how you go.

    Please do not bump one of your posts to gain attention, our Rules state that this is only permissible once after 48 hours.

    You can try the Assistive Touch feature which will put the home button on your screen. Settings - General - accessibility - Assistive Touch. You can also create new gestures here also.
