    i just bought a brand new ipod touch 3g about a week ago and today it fell out of my car from about 2 feet onto the concrete and the glass broke. the screen is fine but the glass is cracked. I'm pretty sure the warranty wont cover it but considering its only one week old would I have any chance of getting a new one? I bought it from costco...

    I don't think so since it was you who broke it

    But I guess it won't cost that much to reeplace that glass; in fact, there are tutorials on how to do that around the web.

    If you still have the receipt take it back to Costco, say you got it as a gift, and and when you opened it.. it was broken.

    Ta-Da.

    ^ This, they take anything back. That's how I returned my 1G back when it had water damage and a cracked screen, then again that was 2 (almost 3) years ago.

    Costco is a win. Just return it say that you received it as a gift and it was broken upon opening it.

    Yeah Costco has a guaranteed electronics return policy. As long as it's within 30 or 60 days I believe.
