I really fear the iPad2 is beyond fixing. I sure would try paying some extra to upgrade to the iPad4. Also look at the Life Proof water proof shock proof housing for the replacement iPad.

Yes, it can be repaired, now the casing may look terrible if bent (even if bent straight again). If water got inside of it, then it may be not worth repairing.

Yes they can be repaired and made to look new. Go to amazon and search for iPad 2 parts and you'll see you can get just about any part for it.

If you have full-coverage insurance, why would you even consider repairing it yourself. This is the reason for the insurance. AppleCare+ covers water damage and cracked screens. File a claim with your insurer; they will likely give you a refurb or new device just as Apple would.

He wasn't talking about repairing it himself but if the insurance company would try to repair or replace. I think they would replace for it would be cheaper to do in the long run.

What's this have to do with iPad repair?
It seem like there is a influx of people just posting random stuff lately.

Content that off the wall and out of place is typically spam. Just report it rather than replying to it and a mod will delete their posts and ban them.

Sorry since they did not try to suggest a website or product I didn't know if it was considered spam or were they just mixed up.

No problem. Spotting spammers gets easier with time, and I was just pointing out a couple things to look for. That particular post had an embedded spam link, but sometimes they just try to get their post count up to ten or so before they start linking their spam.
