Several months ago my iPad 1 suffered a fall, which ended my use of it. I saved up and replaced it with an iPad 2 and have been happy with the new toy. however my hubby now needs to have an iPad for work and I'm not willing to fork out yet another 1k for a 3g iPad when we already have one. I remembered I still have the iPad 1 hanging around and now I am wondering if it could be repaired. After it fell the display was all crazy, it's not cracked in any way, but the case was bent and the display layers are a bit skew wiff and all rainbowy. I'm guessing all the innards are fine. I didn't even think at the time to contact apple because it was an accident at our end and not any fault with the hardware, but I realise I should have since it was still under warranty when it happened. no idea how to include pics on this forum, but heres a photo on my flickr account, http://www.flickr.com/photos/20909822@N04/6225021797/in/photostream I just discounted the idea of getting it fixed because in most cases with small electronics the cost to fix far exceeds the cost to replace. I've even been scouting my local auction sites for ipad1 that aren't working due to other reasons to see if I can frankenstein one together. There is just nothing around in NZ, it's such a small market anyway and when broken ones do come up, its because they have been dropped and have broken screens and cases I went to the apple site to see if I could find out if they could fix it, but all I got was that it would cost me $49 to talk to someone about it because I no longer had warranty cover?? all I want to know is roughly how much it might cost to get it repaired to see if it is worth doing. Or even if it is possible. I do feel like a mug for not contacting them while it was still under warranty, after hearing so many stories about how people have taken their abused and out of cover items in to apple stores and received replacements.
