    Well the wife just dropped her iPad 2 and shattered the screen. :mad: Anyone know what I can do to get it fixed? Can they replace screens at Apple Stores or at least will they ship it to Apple for me? Anyone know what a replacement screen will run?

    Take it to the apple store and tell them what happened. I've had mine replaced for free that way, but it's up to them. If they opt to charge you they usually charge half of retail and give you a new one in a brown box.

    Good luck!

    If you google similar stories it is possible they may give you a free replacement. I wouldn't expect this, as it wasn't their fault the screen got cracked. Just have to choose the right person at the right time in their stores. Don't lie to them, tell the the truth and you may get lucky.

    Ok so I was not so lucky. They want $269 to replace it with a new one. Our other option is to send it to iresq and pay $209 to get the screen replaced. :mad:

    Well, you DID break it. They aren't obligated to give you a replacement. $269 for a brand new iPad seems pretty good.
