I bought my elderly mother her first ipad when I was in Australia last week. It was on special at Big W in Noosa as a "back to school special".
When I got back home to Wellington I set it up as best I could for her before sending it by courier to her home in the Waikato. There was no screen fault before it left my hands..
It was well packaged in its original box, then it was wrapped in an additional layer of bubble wrap. My mother looked at this ipad for a couple of days and didn't really touch it till my sister turned up a few days later to connect it to her wifi. Thats when my sister noticed a thin line running through the centre of the screen. Mum didn't really notice this fault, but my sister sure did and she started jumping up down saying I should return it. Good luck with that I reckon, as I don't think I have any recourse for this.
Mums not worried at all, as she is just delighted to have a new toy.
Are there any thoughts on this, I'm guessing I'm s*** out of luck.
