Shattered iPad? Cracked phone screen? No problem!

I had my iPad 3 for almost a full year and never ever dropped it.  I had this adorable case on it, that was super cute, and everything was alllll kinds of hunky dory and happy.  I even would read books or watch episodes of True Blood on my iPad while in the tub.  NEVER did I drop it. I was so careful!  Always! And then one sad morning, my poor little iPad slipped from my hand in the bathroom.  It dropped onto the floor, maybe from a foot above the floor?

And it shattered.

It was a very, very sad day.

Then I ordered this cool kit to replace the glass and I was all ‘Oh yay me, I can totally fix this myself” and I did. I totally replaced that glass properly.  It’s just that this little thingy was supposed to be clicked into the motherboard, and not just taped in place and I kind of missed that minor detail and so there I was with a fixed glass iPad 3 that wasn’t going to work because I MISS things…and wasn’t about to touch the glass again.  So my poor little iPad sat unused and unloved for a few months (and I did try to hook up with a few “repair” places via Twitter who didn’t respond to my inquiries. I was giving up on things.

But then I found out about and things changed.

My sads were over.

I bundled up my iPad and sent it away, using the prepaid label that sent to me, figuring I had nothing to lose. We’d gone months without seeing one another- I wasn’t sure we’d ever be “together” again. Within a week…I had a box come in the mail. logo

  • This is definitely good to know about now that all the kids have devices.

  • I’m glad to learn about this. One of my nieces has a shattered iPod that needs to be fixed.
