    Hi all,
    a few months back I went to the Download Festival, and brought my Ipod Touch 2nd Gen with me.. (already seen a similar post- its a small world

    - the Ipod wouldn't turn on by pressing any buttons, and would only turn on if plugged in
    - The volume control to turn down the volume no longer worked, and the volume would often randomly go up to full without me pressing anything
    -The Ipod locked at random points, and the red bar message to "slide to turn off" also randomly started.
    - (personally the weirdest one) the volume controls locked the ipod and would bring up the red "switch off bar" too...
    There were also white dots and blotches everywhere on the screen.
    Now, my Argos warranty offers a 3 year breakdown cover, which I renewed after the first was used, (my previous touch's screen broke and was replaced with the current) and it seems to cover accidental breakage, but would I get a replacement, repair or refund if I took it to them?
    Thanks in advance guys, and sorry for the massively long post
