    ipad warranty
    If my 1-year warranty for my ipad 3, does not cover accidental damages such as broken or cracked screen, then why after doing their online diagnostic of my ipad, did they give me a repair number and asked i ship it in?

    Given the limited info in your post...the only thing I can guess is...they will certainly be willing to charge your credit card for the repairs.

    And what you will likely get back is a refurb iPad, not the one you send in.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    There are a number of possible explanations:

    1. They are being EXCEPTIONALLY nice to you.

    2. They discovered some other flaw in the machine that a warranty *would* cover, and so are ignoring the user abuse/drop/accident and replacing the machine for you, which is EXCEPTIONALLY nice of them.

    3. They *didn't* find any other flaw but are willing to fix the screen for a charge as a courtesy.

    And possibly something else I haven't thought of. In any event, I'd suggest getting the AppleCare+ for this tablet if you still can.
