    Was driving and had my iPad in passengers seat, someone got in the car and moved it to the back and didn't tell me. When I opened the door to get it out, it feel on the ground and the power button got stuck down. Apple will charge me $300 and just send me a new one and I give them mine... is there any company that is reputable and will repair it for less?

    And I did not have insurance. Just a 32gb Wifi Only model

    Ifixit from the app market has detailed instructions on tearing down many devices including the iPad. Should be of help

    The ipad is a closed device it is not about money it is about not being able to replace the switch thus it needs to be replaced

    Get a new one and charge it to the idiot who had no consideration for your property.

    Sorry Guys, I don't have the money to buy a new one - This was a gift to me.

    So no one has had any experience with digiexpress?

    If it were me, I would call them up and ask them about getting it repaired. If it sounds like they can do it for a reasonable price, give them a shot. From what I have read through a quick Google search it might take some time to get the iPad back, but they appear to be legit.

    If you do decide to try them out, give us a report back when everything is finished. I'm sure you aren't the first or last person that will need repairs at some point. Your input will probably be a big help down the road (as I nervously eye my daughter playing Plants vs. Zombies ....).

    I really want to try them out, but I've read that there not very good. I did call them, it's $25 for the analysis and $27ish for the part, so about $60... I'm just nervous because I don't want to send it to them and not get it back...

    That's rotten luck!
    In the UK, something like that would be covered on the household (contents) insurance. Don't know about the US but have you checked your household policy? Cheers,

    I find that cost for repair very low as normal cost to repare anything like this would be a minimum of $100 plus parts

    That does seem a little low, but the $100 + parts would be more in line with actual Apple pricing for repairs. I got the battery replaced in my iPod Touch by a third party for less than $40 shipped both ways, so I don't think the quoted price is too far out of line. Apple's pricing for the same thing is $99.
