    My iPod was ordered from a catalogue and not bought direct from store so would I still be able to return it to a store if issues came up?

    Also there is no Apple Store near me but there is an "apple reseller" opening up in the coming months in my home town, is that the same thing?

    I am sick of the scratches on the back, I dunno how they got there in all honesty, is there anything I can do to repair them?

    and now for a real problem....when my iPod was Jailbroke I chose for it to show the battery meter in analogue and it would go from 89% to 21% then back up to some random number, also the battery power colour would change to reflect this....is this normal Jailbroken behaviour or is my iPod gone all crazy?

    1. Your retailer should be able to do a refund/exchange if you experience issues (excluding jailbroken issues).
    2. An apple reseller is allowed to sell new apple goods independently from apple (and repairs I think).
    3. For the scratches on the back you could use a product like AppleSauce scratch remover and buy a case to protect it in the future.
    4. That is not normal. Try a different numerical battery.

    The battery issue was using the extra settings thing, cant remember its name but you swiped across near the clock at the top etc.

    To fix your battery thing, play a game or keep the iPod on like a white screen until your battery runs flat.

    When your battery runs flat, plug it in, and leave it there for a day.
    When it turns back on, your battery meter should be recalibrated.

    Plug it in for a full day?
    Surely that would kill it?

    Also just noticed that when its plugged in the ipod feels quite warm at the bottom where the USB cable plugs in, is this normal?

    Of course, and I didnt mean a day (sorry)
    Only for a couple hours until you have some battery.

    Basically once the battery runs dry, its recalibrated, its up to you whether you want to recharge it or not

    Yeah it is, but if it's so hot that you burn your hand that isn't.
