    i got my iPad in the mail and it was perfect for 1 to 2 hours. then i noticed the back was getting very hot and the right half of the screen was dim. then the screen went out altogether and won't power on. i called apple and was on hold 3 or 4 different times while i talked to different people. they finally put me on with some iPad god guy

    he told me it was a new problem and they could not ship me a new one right a way. they are going to ship me a box and i have to send my iPad in and then wait for them to ship me a new one.

    needless to say i was not happy at all with that. so to calm me down he offered me a 6' iPad cord or a iPod shuffle lol. i told him what i thought of the iPod shuffle very bluntly. he then offered me a iPod nano. i could see this was going nowhere so i took it.

    they said i should get the shipping box monday and then who knows how long until i get my new iPad

    Maybe try going into an Apple store and see if they'll swap it. Bring in all your paperwork for the pre-order and stuff.

    Sorry to hear of your misfortune.

    However to be fair to Apple, a few bad ones are bound to get shipped.

    They mass produce these in massive quantities, they cannot all be perfect.

    Apple will take care of it. I have no doubt.

    could be just me, but i think a free ipod nano is not a bad tradeoff.. if you have no use for it, sell it
