    hey guys :(

    Thankfully the screen is not damaged in any shape or form, everything still works, but the metal backing has a dent in it.

    Along the side where the speaker is, the back part of the metal is bent inwards, and the top part, where the screen is, is no longer flush with the screen. its uneven so if you run your finger across you can feel the metal sticking up over the edge :(

    Do apple stores have a repair center ? (never been in one)
    How much do you think they'd charged me to replace the metal backing ?

    I really REALLY want it fixed :(

    Ouch! That's painful!

    Apple could repair it but I remember reading somewhere on this forum that they'd just swap it for a new one...

    Call them.

    Most likely no repair do you have insurance to cover all risk? That will help

    I doubt they'd fix it, hardly any place actually fixes things anymore. Heck, they don't even replace the battery, really - they just give you a new iPad. Your only real option is replacing it, unless you have a rider on your home insurance covering electronic equipment, or bought it with a credit card that insures your purchases, like AMEX.

    yep, no repairs, but they offered to replace it for 350 straight swap (32gb 3g)


    I had them make sure the dent would not affect cooling or anything, they confirmed it would not, and everything still works, just a cosmetic issue.

    so going to opt for the 39 dollar apple case for it and forget its ever there heh.

    Oh man, I'm so sorry this happened to you :( But you have a good idea, just get the case and forget its there. One way 2 look at it is that hey... now u've got the first "ding" in it so its out of the way and you don't have 2 obsess about keeping everything perfect :)

    I cringe at the thought. This thread makes me want to run out and buy one of those big, fat, beefy industrial cases.
