    My 2g iPod Touch is broken and will not turn on. There is no water damage. I have the AppleCare protection plan on it. I will be sending it in to them. Shipping is free since I have AppleCare, but what happens if they deem it accidental damage? Do they just send it back for free, or what?

    Nope, just won't power on.

    It says on their website if they find accidental damage they might charge you shipping, but I'm not sure if Applecare changes that or not.

    nah
    as long as no water damage, then ur all good.
    they wont be able to tell if it is accidental or not. only 2 ways are if its cracked or if ur paper is red.

    btw. WAS it accidental or somthen
    ?

    Actually, I got it from someone else, so I don't know if it's accidental or not. All I know it the cosmetic condition is fine, no water damage indicator, just won't power on.

    Did your ipod get fixed?

    Im in the same situation, my ipod wont turn on it has no water damage nor a broken screen. Im goanna send it in but im worried about them ruling it as accidental damage. So i was wondering if yours was repaired?

    iPod touch 4G? Accidental damage is $145 when they billed me. Luckily, my warranty covered the home button
