Hi team,

My boys iPad 2 took a drop a few months ago, and dented the metal back case slightly, down the bottom near the home button.

The dent has displaced the glass front by only-just-perceptible amount, and it has made the home button hard to press.

If I put pressure on the glass the home button works perfectly - so its really just the dent that needs sorting.

Who would do this repair, and how much could I expect to pay.

I live in Hawkes Bay, and as far as I am aware, no one locally has a reputation for fixing smart devices.

I have actually never had to send a handheld smart device I own in for repair ever!

Looking for a reputable repairer, and preferably a fixed cost to repair or replace. I'd be happy with aftermarket if thats an option.

Cheers,
T

As far as Im aware of , if you contact apple they should be able to do this for you.

They would obvioulsy end up replacing the whole metal  housing.

The cost,  well :)
