    Bought my 2 a little under a year ago. Mic doesn't work and it's having kernel panics. I'm going to take it into my Apple store a couple of hours away, but has anyone had experience getting a replacement 2? Mine is the 32GB / 3G version, which technically has been discontinued. Inventory in general is in short supply in my area and the 4G iPad hasn't yet been released, so I don't know what they'd swap mine out with.

    They maintain warranty replacements for models they haven't sold in years.

    If its an Apple Store, should not be a problem.
    I still see iPad 1's in repair stock.

    Resellers you might have a bit of a wait.

    The one they'll replace it with will have a three-month warranty.

    they replaced my ipad 2 with what looks like ipad 3

    I’ve done some research and the ipad 2 model number (found on the back of the ipad) is A1395 and the ipad 3 is A1416, however the ipad Apple replaced is the same weight as an ipad 3 and has the camera of an ipad 3.....

    I’ve love to get to the bottom of what’s happened! And how I can prove whether this has ipad 3 insides...if you know what I mean?

    Thanks

    How did you determine that the camera and weight are the same as the new iPad?

    As an update to my new post, I was indeed able to swap out my 32GB/3G for a new one of the same model. They do keep old models in stock.

    Or the balance of the original warranty including Applecare, whichever is longer.
