    Ok guys I have some questions that might help me keep my ipod safe so I can sell it soon. (because I dont want it to fall or get scratched more..)

    1. I leave my iPod in my school locker. people always shove their friends against my locker and my ipod starts to fly inside the locker.

    2. I leave my ipod in a car (can this affect my ipod in any way?)

    3. I take my ipod outside of my house (its about 15-5 C°)

    will any of these affect my ipod?

    I have done this with my PSP and it died.. I wonder if my ipod is gonna die too.. Please reply thx!

    1. It could get stolen, keep it in your pockets. Don't sit on it though.

    2. It could either get very cold or very hot in a car, which is bad.

    3. I suppose that's fine if you don't leave it exposed for too long. You know, only take it out when necessary.

    The iPod's screen is made of glass, you'll likely end up cracking it if it's "flying around" inside your metal locker. My advice? purchase some kind of "sock" for it. Don't pay apple's expensive fee, but go get one, they're nice and useful.

    Also, leaving it in the car WILL expose it to extreme hots and colds. this can cause many issue, the least of which is a destroyed screen/battery.

    There are many cases for iPod touch and that can help you keep your ipod safe but still you should always keep it with you.

    I do have a case and when I broke my foot I left my ipod in the car for an hour or so and its fine... I cant have my ipods in my pockets in class because people see it popping out and tell the teacher..

    I have a solution for you (lockers) just bring a jacket that matches your school colors and put it in there

    1 I would kepp it on your locker/ slash wrap it in a jacket.

    2 I left my iPod in the car for like half a school year and the screen went unresponsive.

    3 Don't think so if its only for a short time.

    Really? They're that jealous? And you can't have electronic devices in school? In my school we were able to have them, just had to have them off.

    The best idea is you should not take your iPod touch to your school and leave it at home.
