    Just I month using my iPad,, I dropped it and it has a visible dent on the top right corner,, I feel so sad cause I love my iPad so bad,, no functional damage so far, but I really want to get rid of that dent.. Any suggestion please? Can I repair it? Or replace it? Is there any aluminium bumper that I can use to cover my iPad?

    Sorry to hear about dropping your iPad. I think that must be everybody's worse nightmare.

    I am moving this to general discussions. You have currently posted within our Special Needs Forum for members/families that have physical and cognitive impairments and use their iPads for quality of life purposes.

    Meanwhile, I will provide a link for you to review. You will need to read both Mickey330 and Leelai's posts at the end to gather the appropriate info.

    Cracked the ipad screen, got a free replacement from the apple store - Page 55

    Good luck!

    I'm sorry to hear that. I have to say, however, that this is the exact reason I sprung for apple care + for $99 for two year coverage and two incidents. It is just too easy to drop a mobile device like an iPad and its weight, unlike a phone, is likely to result in damage. The other choice is square trade, which is less expensive, but would take a bit more effort to use when an accident happens, if you don't live near an apple store. The a warranty you don't need to worry. I typically don't buy extended warranties, however, so this is an exception for me. Best.

    I'd put a case over it, call yourself lucky that it still works fine, and move on.

    I dropped my iPad 1 on a tiled floor (over concrete) ages ago and dented a corner. No other sign of damage, works fine, and the only time I remember the dent is when I see such posts, lol.

    I don't buy extended warranties, because I don't drop and break all my gadgets. Even if I dropped and broke a couple, I'd still come out ahead moneywise by not having bought any extended warranties at all.

    That said, I've dropped my iPad 1 and 2 repeatedly onto carpet, dropped my Samsung Galaxy Note onto a wooden bench, and had someone drop my iPhone 4 onto a glass tabletop while looking at photos, and no harm, no foul. And all my gadgets wear are one-piece TPU backs with no front cover or screen protectors.

    I did smash my iPhone 4 later, when it slid off a slightly inclined TV screen on my bathroom vanity as I rinsed off the TPU backing, as it happens. Apple replaced it for free, without any kind of AppleCare. That was mighty generous, I figured.

    I Have an insurance that if you break your iPad you can turn it in and they will give you a new iPad within 2 days. But this costs A LOT of money! And I think you might have to get the insurance when you buy the iPad, or you can take it to the nearest apple store and I'm sure they can fix it for you.

    Uh I'm not sure, my parents got it when they got the iPad, but I think probably the apple store. I'll have to ask them later because they're busy right now.
