    Is anyone else having a problem with the brightness sensor or the 3rd gen touch? It seems to have no effect when I turn auto-brightness on, all it does is turn my brightness to like 5%. It only seems to work when I'm in direct sunlight. My 1G touch's brightness sensor works like a breeze and the one on my 3G doesn't so anything so I turned it off and I really miss auto-brighness... Any help?

    It may a defect in the device itself? I would suggest possibly returning it, or restoring to see if there is any difference. I mean I don't see it being an issue firmware wise, more hardware if anything, but you never know.

    Oh, shut up.

    This was an argument about 2 months ago.

    Anyways, how was that October iPod event? Oh wait! There wasn't one!

    Was that really necessary? ^^^^

    @OP: Try Calling Apple. I think it is a hardware problem

    Well, it could be a firmware thing. His firmware may be slightly damaged, and it just happens to affect the light sensor.

    No, when I got it it was on 3.1 and it did it then as well as 3.1.1 and currently 3.1.2. I don't think it's worth my time to return it bc I tried returning my nano 3 days after the return date on the receipt bc the glass over the screen is loose and there is dust under it and they gave me grief and I told them I'd never purchase anything from that apple store again. And plus I ordered my touch online the day it after it came out and it's a waste of time for me to try and return it. I'll just live with bc I got more important problems. I was just looking for a quick fix.

    Ok. Well, the difference isn't supposed to be huge.

    For example, if you use you iPod as an alarm clock, and leave it under your pillow, it dims just enough so that it doesn't blind you.
