    no, literally...i cracked the screen. about 60% of the screen is distorted due to the shatter of the impact. Yes, i slammed my ipod in rage against my siblings, but dont comment on that.

    i went to the apple store and they wont fix it, they only replace...

    it's extremely expenses

    does anyone know of any other alternatives?

    This happened to me.

    unless you want to spend $160 and replace the screen yourself and risk damaging it.

    you should take it into the Apple store.

    That was a stupid idea, ya I have to comment, you have to play tricks with them like when you tell them the dock stoped working and fried your iPod and cracked the screen. Take it someware else.

    Yah but if the Apple employees have any brain cells, heat gives it a stress crack, not an epicenter with shatter lines fowing from it at X and Y angles.

    But then again... they were completely oblivious to the point that i had a very sexy Jessica Alba dancing in my wallpaper...so who knows.

    Are you desperate? If so just try it.
