    I dropped my iPad this evening for the first time. The corner that contacted the concrete got a bit dented up and slightly marred. Seems to be working fine (thanks to the protective faux-leather cover it was in) but I was curious if anyone has dropped theirs and ended up with much worse outcomes???

    Dropped mine with a case, all fine. Didn't even panic, just a wee "oh darn!" and didn't even look at it straight away. Felt confident. LOL

    Sorry about yours though ;(

    Ours have been dropped a dozen times now on hardwood flooring, but the ugly apple case does a remarkable job of protecting it. That funny lip around the edge seems to absorb impact nicely.

    Haven't dropped mine so can't speak to that, but thankfully you had it in a case so it seems mostly cosmetic damage. Makes a good case for using a case!

    A sad incident, but you made this photo really cool. Really like the blurry background!

    Dropped mine onto tile floor. It was in a Zagg/keyboard combo. No damage whatsoever.

    I've thought about getting one of those, does the ipad "snap" into the case? Isn't the back of the iPad exposed still?

    I like your thinking...

    Nope, never dropped mine either: I take very good care of my things, and no need to turn it into an armoured brick, either.

    Although I once saw someone on the bus with a naked iPad and it had a dent yay-big on the back, and it was kind of sad-looking.

    Maybe send it away to Apple or take it into a Apple store that's all I can think of.

    I have the Otterbox on mine and have dropped it numerous times. Nothing happened. Not even a scratch.

    Yes OtterBox does make them for the iPad. A helpful tip, if you order it from Amazon or Walmart online the price drop is a bunch! For instance, 90 dollars for the best Defender case from the retailers and around 50 online...

    I had dropped my ipad right on the face, luckily it did not hit the body. The screen was shattered pretty bad. At first i didn't know what to do but after searching for iPad Repair Center's near my area found Dr. Cell Phone. They did a great job!

    My screen shattered (spiderwebbed) and I didn't even drop it or drop anything on it. Target exchanged it out no questions asked.
    I woke up Saturday morning,took it out of sleep and the screen looked funny , had a rainbow, so I tried scraping the goo( thought maybe gum or something) and it was like a gouge so I looked at it sideways in the light and the whole thing looked like a spiderweb.
