    ...but am I the only person here that's tired of reading people complaining about dropping their iPad and the screen cracking? I mean for the love of god it's GLASS, not diamond or sapphire Chrystal. ANY glass is breakable so treat it with the same respect you'd treat any other piece of glass and the IPF will be a much less whinny place!

    On another note I ordered a refurbished ipad2 for my GF today! Yes I know the 3 comes out in a month but Cupid has a holiday Tuesday so I pulled the trigger!

    You're not alone. OK, it's massive if it happens to you, and I would not like it to happen to me.
    But if it did, I'd have to 'suck it up' as they say. Best advice, don't drop it...

    I don't even like thinking about dropping my iPad and shattering it!! :)
    I am so careful with mine and treat it with the respect it deserves.
    But if it were to happen, touch wood, it would be my fault, my problem, no one else's!

    I spend some of my spare time at work replacing the screens of iPod touches and iPhones at cost price (chocolate and fizzy drink is the nominal fee - yes, I get a lot of chocolate). I laugh every time someone tells me their tales of woe and how they broke it. Almost every one of them is in disbelief that it shattered when dropped... glass and impact = broken, simples!

    No - the best advice is - make sure its insured either directly or via your household insurance.

    Many of those posts are from folks who are probably pretty attached to their iPads or devastated because they've spent a good chunk of money on one and don't really know what to expect in terms of getting it fixed. When you're digging for a solution to a problem like that, you come to a forum like this... so voila!

    Anyway, I don't mind seeing those posts. I'm always hopeful they find the help they need and feel better about the situation when they leave. Which is, by the way, the whole point of this forum being here and applies to the huge range of issues posted about every day.

    OP, I hope your GF enjoys that new-to-her iPad!
