    My brothers iPod touch screen just cracked.
    Apple won't fix it for free will they? Can we pay to fix it? if so how much?
    What if I un-jailbreak it then like unplug it or something while it's updating, so it won't turn on? my friend did this to get a new Ipod touch and it worked, do you think it will work for us?

    If the screen is cracked they will not replace it under warranty. They do not cover accidental damage.

    I think Apple charges 200 to fix, not sure though.

    There is a website you can buy parts for cheap, ifix it or something like that.

    I donno, they might think you cracked the LCD too, and think that's why it won't turn on.

    Anyway, my friend has a cracked screen himself, apple didn't feel like replacing it, but the touch function still works so he actually doesn't care


    But yeh, apple won't fix it for free

    What ever you try to do or say, WILL NOT WORK. The screen is cracked, THEY WILL NOT REPLACE IT.

    Say you woke up and it was on the charger overnight, and it was really hot and you noticed the screen was cracked. Overheat excuse works everytime

    well, i suppose its obvious that its cracked when the ipod is off, right? well you can get it fixed for around 65-80$ depending on where you go. look on crigslist for someone in your area. 200 bucks is rediculous, you might as well get a new one...
