    Sell it on eBay and get an Android Tablet. You may walk away with some extra cash as well. If you guarantee delivery by Christmas it could go quick.

    This post is Incredible 2!

    If you end up selling it, check out the ASUS Transformer Prime. That's the next tablet on my list dancedroid

    Don't do that.

    Go on Craigslist. Make and account and place an ad. Meet ONLY at public places, and demand cash. Also, get a counterfeit bill pen to make sure the cash is real. You can find those at Walmart or staples, etc. Ask if you cannot.

    If the thing is $800 normally, offer $50-100 less to move it quicker.

    Then show up at the meet, get the cash and test with pen, and give the iPad away.

    Easy as pie.

    Sent from someplace, and with something that you need not worry about.

    I would sell it and make profit, then if you want a tablet pickup a Samsung Galaxy Tab or the Asus Transformer.

    Congrats on winning too

    i already talked to the manager of a local best buy. he said as long as it's still in the box he would exchange it for me. if i get the $829 that theyre website is pricing it at, im gonna exchange it for a laptop for my son and maybe the 7 inch galaxy tab for me. we'll see what hapens friday.

    ok i just got back from Bestbuy. boy was that place full. i went to returns to exchange the IPad 2 i won. the lady said i couldnt exchange it without a receipt. i told her i had talked to one of the managers the other night and he said he wouild exchange it for me without the receipt. she went and got a supervisor, who reiterated what first lady had said. i stood my ground and repeated my story, so she went and talked to a manager and they finally relented and gave me store credit for $825. i bought my son a laptop for Xmas and have about $300 left for me. im very satisfied with the whole ordeal :icon_ banana:
