    Not a lot I can do now though, as I bought it on the 8th December. But was just wondering, did anyone else order their iPod Touch 2G from Amazon and find the box was cracked?

    Scratches all over the front as well. Anyone know if I can get a new box, without having to send the device back?

    Ah well, at least the device was fine!

    It doesn't have much to do with Amazon so much as the shipping. It probably happened during shipping, though one could blame Amazon for poor packaging. What I am saying, though, is that it prolly wasn't SHIPPED broken.

    It doesn't really matter though, because once you unpack the iPod outta that plastic case, it becomes useless--impossible to put the crap back in the way it was, believe me, I've tried.

    I do slightly. I paid £254 for a product, maybe I'm old fashioned but I wanted to receive it in perfect condition.

    I accept what the above poster just said, probably Royal Mail's fault?

    Are you all from the US on here?

    You'd be surprised how many people are slightly OCD about the appearance of everything related to their device. I keep every box in the best shape I can because it'll help resale value if I ever decide I want to put it on eBay. Trashed boxes or no box at all aren't going to get much.
