The service plans I've seen for these type of devices won't cover water damage or broken displays which makes them kinda useless.

My friends brother just replaced the glass on his iPad. He ordered the parts on eBay and did the work himself. He said it took about 30 mins and was pretty easy.

You should look into it.

Look on Craigslist for iPad screen repair places if you don't trust yourself to do it. I've had an iPhone screen repaired and couldn't have been happier.

My wife broke the glass on her iPad 2 and the Los Gatos Apple store sold me a new one with the same specs (3G, 64 gigs) for $250. That seemed fair to me - I didn't want to pay full price for a new one, but didn't expect them to fix it for free, either.

If you try to fix it yourself, apparently the tricky parts are dealing with the wireless antenna(s) that pretty much everyone breaks when removing/replacing the glass, and finding a good adhesive to reattach the glass.

I just broke the glass screen on my ipad3 a few hrs ago. It was only 1 foot drop, but still !!! After looking online, I think Apple is charging $299 to replace my iPad. What a ripoff. !!! Buying a glass screen on eBay is only 40 with all the tool needed for replacement. I will definitely go that route.

1' Gorilla-glass, uh?

Nope. Some of us don't have to pay Apple again, nor every time they add a set of features on a new device (upgrade). Some of us without Apple devices can upgrade phone software on our own, and don't do what Apple tells us we can...

Take your time and watch a few YouTube videos first (on how to replace the glass, not some bikini video ). The 3G models are a little harder with their antennas, and triple check the backside of the glass and the LCD to make sure nothing is in there before buttoning it back together. I've replaced quite a few iPad screens, and it's more time consuming than hard.

The service programs I've seen for these type of gadgets won't protect inundating or damaged shows which makes them kind of ineffective.

I'd put it on eBay or craigslist damaged and use the money to fund the purchase of another. Let someone else take the risk in fixing it.
