    So my daughter was passing my iPad to me and it slipped and hit the coffee table....
    Cracks all over
    Been searching the Internet trying to figure out what Apple will charge me
    Seems like 200 for a screen or 370 to swap it for a new unit
    Does this sound right?
    It's a 32g wifi

    It's too late at night to call anyone
    There is a company 30 min away that does replace screens for Apple products but not sure about aftermarket glass?

    Appreciate any help

    Apple replaces/repairs the iPhone 4 glass once for free. I've heard they often do this with the iPad 2 as well. If it happens again, it's $200. Just call the Genius bar in the morning and make an appointment. Good luck with a free replacement! :)

    I have an appt tomorrow evening. We'll see what happens
    I'm not positive it will end up inexpensive


    The local third party iPod/iPhone/iPad repair company wants 275 to repair the screen

    Given that the wifi antenna is glued to the glass itself, sounds risky
    I paid the 300

    That's a shame especially at this time of year.

    I would have thought Apple would have had a little compassion and a big fat Christmas present for you. Steve wouldn't be happy I'm thinking. Bah. Humbug.

    One of my friends has successfuly changed the screen on his IPad and although he said it was not easy it was possible.
