Any non-glass, polycarbonate, or other more durable screen replacements for iPad 2?

I thought you could order AppleCare+ any time within 30days of purchase (i.e., doesn't need to be ordered at time of purchase of iPad).

You can technically, but it's easier to just order it with the initial purchase. The caveat is, (and makes total sense), you have to go in to an Apple store to have your device inspected when purchasing Apple Care after the fact. That way you can't break your device within the first thirty days, THEN purchase AppleCare to get it replaced.

Although there are companies and distributors that don't have this requirement for post-purchase of extended warranties, Apple does.

Exactly why I canceled the first order then placed a new order with AppleCare+ included. Too much hassle to go to an Apple store. Sixty-five mile round trip to the closest one to me.

Not looking for advice on how I should use my iPad, but thanks anyway.

I am also not looking for names of different cases or screen protectors that 'may' work, as I stated in my original post. The one I had failed to help from a two foot drop onto carpet. What's the point of having one then? I've also read too many reviews of similar stories from all the best cases out there. Besides, the case I had was the one you suggested. The Defender. Though it's made by Otterbox, not Griffin. Guess it's not the best solution after all?

Wow, surprised it broke while in the case...great to know about that case

I wish I they had an better alternative for the glass. But who knows

The Otterbox Defender is one strong case. Should have survived a 2 foot drop on carpet with no worry.
