I recently had to replace the wifes ipad3 screen. Emailed around got some prices which varied quite a lot.

ended up using fairfix.co.nz, reasonable price and did a good job.

will be using them next week to fix my sisters ipad screen that my other child broke haha

Invest in a bulletproof casing next time. At least it's not an Air. Yet ...




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

I've used fonefix before and have been very impressed with their service.

Here's the link for their iPad 2 repairs. Smashed screen would come under advanced repair at $299. Also if they need to requote and you don't want to pay the requoted price they will return it unrepaired at no cost. Also the repair itself has a 90 day warranty.
