Hi all

I'd rather not describe (and relive) the experience, but this is clearly not a pretty sight...

https://www.dropbox.com/s/zfwb1stsi0hhhby/ipad-bent.jpg

Oddly, everything except the home button works fine. Screen not cracked. Essentially, the whole thing is bent and port no longer accessible (although the actual connection inside seems fine).

I understand you can pay Apple for a replacement (I was quoted something like £270), but I understand this might count as 'beyond replacement'.

Does anyone have any advice from actual experience?

Many thanks

Wow. I know you want to describe what happens, but inquiring minds want to know. That's impressive. Totally bent out of shape, but with an intact screen.
