Quick question, I don't know if Apple is replacing my iPad for free as the "one time" replacement or what's going on, hoping someone can answer this. I cracked the bottom left corner of my iPad, the aluminum in between the glass and the aluminum. It's a very small crack and I was going to deal with it, but after a few days I noticed a little scratch on my palm, and found it was caused by the crack when holding the iPad in portrait. So I figured I'd call Apple and see how much an OOW replacement would be. I spoke with an advisor, he gave me the pricing and he also said I could send the iPad in for repair. I asked how they would repair the aluminum and he said they can't repair it, but he advised me to send it in. I am more than willing to pay the OOW fee, and am actually free to go down to the Apple Store this Saturday. I would be very grateful if they replaced this as a one time deal, but don't expect it. Anyway, does anyone know why the advisor would set up a repair when he said it's a non-repairable issue, and if they can't repair it they will send it back to me and then I can call for an OOW replacement. Thanks to any comments on this.
