Re: The Apple iPad

After slating the damn thing so much I'm having a desire to get one. Birthday is coming so might hint at the wife, who will probably say 'But you said it was useless and just a giant ipod touch.....etc. etc.'

I'll sell you my 64gb Wifi version (US import) for 799.- Comes with a screen protector (installed bubble-free, which is an art, I can tell you :-) and a sock-type bag.

perhaps I should add (I'm the one selling the iPad and imported it from eBay): the device is registered with Apple. Apple doesn't always give out receipts. They'll ask you if you want a confirmation e-mailed to you instead. I have more than once received warranty services by Apple without a physical receipt - they don't usually ask for it but look up the device in their system instead, using the serial number.

Well thats is also possible but the store is not obligated to give you the assistance without the receipt. I mean, it should work when the original costumer go and ask for the warranty. But if you sell your Ipad to a 2nd person and this person goes to Apple store asking for warranty, i am pretty sure that apple wouldnt do anything to help.

Think about that, someone stole your broken ipad, and the thief goes to app store and ask for the warranty. How can you prove that this Ipad is legally yours? Thats why the recipe is really important.

Other solution is if you made the extend warranty. In this case should work without the recip cause you are registred with apple.

If you can prove that you legally bought the item from the other person, that should hardly be a problem.

but I agree, I guess I'll be throwing in a year's worth of Applecare to make sure the iPad is covered.

When I was selling my iPhone I asked the Apple store if I need to change ownership details on their computer or anything and they said no. It's yours to do what you want with.

The warranty for iPhones is linked to the serial number which is activated when the phone is activated for the first time. I'd assume it is the same for iPads.

edit: Remember the warranties for apple products only apply in the country they are bought in....unless the extended warranty is bought.

that doesn't go for all Apple products - the iPad is covered internationally. Apple Germany has officially confirmed that:

Re: The Apple iPad

Quick update:

Just spoke to the Bahnhofstrasse Apple store.

Apparently, even if you do not have a receipt, if the iPad (or presumably any other product) doesn't have a receipt, but IS within the warranty period, they will honour the servicing costs for it.

Good news and example of sensible business practice, i think we can all agree.

Re: The Apple iPad

Well, the kids got hold of the IPad, and have been playing angry birds all day... They love it.

Re: The Apple iPad

Has anyone been using the iPad for presentation on a projector? How have they found it?
