    i received an ipad as a gift today without receipt and someone in my family removed the shrink wrap, but i want to return it for store credit. would i have to pay the restocking fee or could the manager of the apple store waive that?

    that being said, is it worth it to pay the restocking fee and the difference to get the newer version of the ipad when it comes out?

    I'd say you'd have to pay the restock fee... that is, if they'll accept a return without a receipt. Why would the manager waive it?:confused:

    Do you even know that it was purchased at an Apple Store?

    a gift. do you not understand what that means? people can be such ingrates. If some one dropped an ipad on me as a gift i'd be happy, not salty the shrink wrap was gone. if there was no receipt it was so you'd keep the thing.

    on my receipt it clearly stated you had 14 days to return in and if it was opened it would be $62.90 less. Mine was $629 so I figure they're letting people know there's a 10% restock if it's opened.

    of course im not ungrateful, i'm forever indebted to them, but since it's very likely that a next gen one will come out first quarter next year.

    it was purchased at an apple store and i've heard that managers can be lenient with those fees based on threads ive searched for here.

    so if the next gen ipad was $500 then i'd be paying $45.8 (10% of today's price since it was bought today) + ($500 - ($458 - $45.8)) = $133 ? is that worth it?

    I say use it now and resell later. 1. who is to say the new features in next gen will be worth upgrading too, 2. there is no release date for it...1st quarter is rumor as far as I know. 3. we don't know if they will be able to keep the same price points they have now.

    Um, you probably won't get it to your door until April of '11. That is a lot of time you could be using the iPad right now.

    Plus, perhaps you won't need the features of the new one.

    Even if you lost some of the value, just sell it, when the new one arrives, if you want it at that time.

    After all, I don't think you're going to be returning it with no receipt, and you'd have a restocking fee since it is opened.

    The current iPad is still fantastic. I just bought one for my mother for the holidays. I know a new one will be out in a few months, but the current one is still oh so cool.

    Just use it. You'll definitely be paying a restocking fee. You can sell it used for almost the same amount next year. Resale on these things is insane.

    I would like to think so, but I can't help but feel the value will drop a fair amount when the next model is out.

    He should just use it and sell it later if he wants the next gen. it'll be at least 5 months until the next rev comes out if they stick to 12 months for iOS device refreshes.
