    I bought my wife a new iPad 3 for no reason and she loves it.
    She's used FaceTime for upto 3 hours a time and plays bingo every night (she's only 29).

    I've posted a question in the iPad 3 forum regarding her cracked screen - we don't know how it happened, as it's kept wrapped in cottonwool.

    I'll probably be the person browsing and asking questions as she expects me to know all the answer even though I only have an iPhone 4 - I'm not allowed on her iPad.

    Hope to chat to you all soon, seems like a lovely forum here.

    Cheers
    Paul

    If she's got the iPad, seems to make more sense for her to join the forum. There's even a forum app that she can load for free.

    She doesn't do forums I'm afraid.

    I think I'm going to fix the screen myself or get it repaired privately instead of at Apple.

    I called a store and they quoted £250 for a new screen!

    I should say I'm an electronic engineer, so it shouldn't be too difficult.

    Apple wouldn't repair the screen as such but will just replace the iPad.

    Do be careful if you replace the screen yourself. You will find tear downs on the net but the thing to be careful about is the wifi connection, it is very fragile and many have reported it not working after a screen fix and that's even after so called professionals have done it. Something to also keep in mind, if you or another do it, this will void your warranty.
