MY iPOD SCREEN CRACKED ;O;

Thankfully only the outer glass is broken, and everything else works fine, but I'm really bothered by this.

I can replace the glass, right?

Did you try switching it on and off? (old joke is old)

Got a warranty?

Yeah, I got it in October, so the manufacturer's warranty is still active.

I think I'll call Apple support and see if it's eligible for repairs, but since I'll be going to Bfair soon, I can't send it in for a few weeks.

Yeah, they should be able to replace the glass.

Did you drop a it on a feather pillow or something?

I've dropped it on cold hard concrete without any cracks before...

I had it tucked in my shirt. Kinda forgot it was there when I sat down. Apparently that cracked it. That's just embarrassing. :|

Well, looks like I lost the warranty booklet, but I still have the serial number, so hopefully that's enough.

Well, at least you didn't drop a Nokia on it.

You could try the Genius Bar at your local Apple Store, but I don't know for sure whether your warranty covers cracked glass.

The glass is definitely replaceable, though. Maybe not by yourself (I think the 4th gen has the glass glued to the LCD), but there are numerous businesses that can do this repair if your warranty can't help you.

That would have been disastrous.

You need geek squad protection and an otter box case.

I'd like Otterbox but they're so expensive. ;o;

I think I'll get the screen fixed, then shop around for some protection.

I believe when my mom's screen was cracked she was able to repair due the warranty at Apple.

Apple does not cover broken screens under their warranty. That's not considered a manufacturer defect which is what they cover.

Occasionally they will be generous and do a replacement. They replaced my friends iPad once after his kids jumped on it on the bed.... They usually don't cover that sort of thing though.

How much do Apple replacements cost? I'l likely go for a third-party repairer, but I need to know just in case.

I have no clue. I just know the pricing of our 1, 2, and 3yr ADH plans you have to get before breakages. :P
