    My usb cable that came with my ipod touch has started to rip (from normal use) and i was wondering if apple would replace it. I already bought a new apple composite cable but it does not fit in all the way with my rebel touch case.

    They would probably replace it..
    But it's only 5 bucks for a new one.
    Plus, your thing should still be working. It doesn't really matter. Mine is ripped a bit, but it works fine.

    I was thinking about that, but i need to make sure it will fit in with my rebeltouch case. I know im being kinda cheap, but i would probably need to buy an off brand cable off the internet and i dont have a credit card. If i could buy one from a store near me i would, but idk if i could.

    My wires inside started to rip too. I stated using it a minute ago and it seemed to be working but a few days ago i plugged it when the battery was about 20% and left it to charge for about an hour and when i came back it was still at about 20%.

    Have you tried bringing the cable into an apple store? maybe an employee will replace it for you, some people can be cool like that.

    I just bought a spare on ebay for only $.91, free shipping too.

    Yeah, mine ripped near the 30 pin connector, too.
    Doesn't mess anything up, though.
