Ipad 2 Ipad2 with cracked screen - advice? questions about applecare+
Posted on 2012-03-09
I have a 32GB wifi only Ipad2. 2 months left on the 1 year warranty. I cracked the screen yesterday. so now what to do? the LCD and touch are still OK. I think I could put a screen protector film on it to ensure glass doesn't flake off ( the corner, outside the scren area is thw worst and there's just 2 lines going along the edges of the touch area - the lines aren't in the LCD area much at all.,
Or I could replace the screen - that would cost $200 and I;ll have an ipad2 that's out of warrnty
or sell it broken on ebay. I could get $150 quick or maybe $200+ with an auction. But I still want an ipad.
the 16GB ipdad2 is $400, so sell the old and for $200 I get an ipad 2 (with only 16gb) with 1 year warranty.
I just learned about the applecare+. it's not out yet for ipad so I am getting different answers - will you be able to buy it for a new ipod2 that is still for sale? (like iphone 4s and 4.... I hear you can buy it for the 4 / not current iphone version)
and then by extension, will they let you buy applecare+ for previously bought ipad 2s that are still under regular warranty?
any other advice to use as is / fix and keep / fix and sell?
