    Hello all,
    I just recently dropped my new iPad against my nightstand (not even that hard), which resulted in a dent in the volume bar. The bottom volume button is stuck and the iPad frame is dented. The volume will not lower while I am listening to music. I purchased Apple Care, but does Apple cover these type of accidents? Can they repair it or will they replace it?
    Please Help,
    Desperate Newbie

    Unless you have AppleCare+, accidental damage is NOT covered as part of the warranty. If you have plus though, make a Genius Bar appt and $49 later, you'll probably walk out with a new device.

    Thanks for your help. I was very worried about it...my iPad has become my life since I got about a month ago

    Me too! I had a 2 but sold it thinking I could just make due with a Kindle and a laptop/desktop.
    Yeah, that idea lasted about 2 months! They are so stinkin' handy to use!

    Couldn't agree more. They are extremely handy and efficient.

    Same problem with my new Apple iPad 3....just 2 months old. I used a company out of Tampa, FL called Florida iDoctor. They had me ship my iPad to them and I had it back in my hands 5 days later. It was fixed and cost me just $75.

    You do realize you likely voided your warranty by having you iPad serviced that way, don't you? If any issues normally covered by the warranty come up and you take it to Apple, it's likely that you won't get warranty service.
