    Ipad 3 Screen Replacement - Purchase
    Hi there everyone.

    I unfortunately had my ipad 3 screen cracked, so looked around to see the price, and realised it was much cheaper to do myself, as well as not too hard (I have had technical experience). I was wanting some help deciding which screen/digitizer to get, here are some I found:

    The NEW iPad Touch Screen Glass Lens Digitizer For iPad 3 Black | eBay

    Black Apple iPad 3 Digitizer Glass Touch Screen The new iPad Replacement New OZ | eBay

    Now, obviously price is a concern, so I was wondering if any of you new of a cheaper place? Also do you think quality matters with this purchase?
    Thanks!

    Just happened to me this past week. Went to Apple store, ordered a "service replacement" Ipad3 monday night, picked it up last night. My wallet is $299 plus uncle sams cut lighter today. No Apple care.
    They offered Apple care at the time of purchase for 99 plus 259 for the replacement. Pricy but I am told it is actually a brand new ipad, the refurbs are sold on their website.

    Can you rephrase that? I don't understand what you are asking.

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Given that you already broke one new iPad, when Apple offered you the AppleCare for (net) $50 you should have been all over that IMO.

    Good luck with the new one and get a good case for it!

    Ipad 3 Screen Replacement - Purchase
    Hi everyone.

    My iPad 3 screen is cracked, but my digitizer still works. (Responding to touch perfectly). Instead if buying a $100 digitizer, I was wondering if I could just replace the glass separately. (I haven't really found much for 'iPad 3 front glass' and variations in Google)

    Help would be appreciated. Thanks.
