    Hi - I am new to this site. I received an Applie Ipad for Christmas - absolutely love it - very attached :) Last night I steeped outside to use an app I had installed for star gazing and it slipped right out of my hands onto concrete. It is still working but is busted up. I want to get it repaired but not sure where to go - it was purchased out of town at a Best Buy.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Make an appointment at your Apple Store with the Genius Bar. They will most probably replace your iPad for a fee, rather than fixing it. You will find others on the net who can fix it but please be aware that this might void your warranty. Good luck!

    The IPad Forum is a community of members from all walks of life and from all over the world coming together to share our experiences and to help each other learn about this wonderful piece of technology the Ipad. There is a wealth of information already here in the many threads we have so doing some searches will answer most of the questions you have. If then you cannot find the answer you are seeking then by all means post your question. There are many friendly and informed members here only too willing to help you.

    We also have our own App - It is a very simple app to navigate.
