Tech advice, please: -Screen has cracked on fairly new iPad 11. When I accepted insurance, was told $29 for unlimited screen repairs. -Asurion now says $229 and will send a new ipad. Can't (or won't) say if its refurbished. -That option would cost me $229 and I'd have to 11s

*two 11s. -- Do I go to a screen repair place? -- Pay the $229 and get a possibly refurbished model to replace a 5-month old model? --Buy a new one and sell cracked screen one? -- Cancel Asurion?

Well, update. Screen repair place is $349. And I've learned that if I let the insurance replace it, I have to send the cracked one back. I think I've uncovered a scam system. I'm going to blow the lid off on this one.

If you send it back if it is within the first year you lose your Apple Warranty as well since it is a different iPad.

Advise always buy Apple products from Apple store and get Apple care.

I did get it from the apple store, but did not get apple care. When I called to set it up, Verizon pushed so hard on the insurance.

Do you have a Batteries Plus location by you? I remember using them to replace a screen. Chicago area.

if you were told $29 to replace the screen with insurance when you bought it, might try going back to where you got it and complain. may not work but might be worth a shot. device insurances are usually a scam - you will almost certainly get a refurbished one

the reason they ask for the cracked one back is to repair it with aftermarket parts and send it out for the next person that sends in a broken iPad
