    hey,

    i dropped my Ipod touch (well it fell out of my jumper pocket when i got out the car) no more then 1 meter
    it landed on a flat concert surface and now the screen has around 8 cracks coming from the bottom right of the screen.

    does any one know the answer to the following:

    1. can i get apple to fix it?
    2. how much would this cost?
    3. can i claim a warranty of some kind?

    i thought the touch was unbreakable i have even seen videos of people dropping them and testing there duality???

    any ideas would be great

    Thanks

    Michael

    1. no
    2. not sure
    3. no

    not "unbreakable" just "unscratchable" (for the most part)

    I think it would be better to just buy a new one because Apple would probably rip you off for fixing it without any premium warranty or insurance

    Same thing happened to me
    Go to the Apple store, and tell them you had a chip in your scree(they cover chips)
    and then say the crack was a result of the chip
    They gave me a new one on the spot
    Good Luck
  6. whats a chip in the screen?...

    I have to be really careful with my touch because the nearest apple store is 2 hours away in NYC and I don't no how to drive yet so I would be screwed.

    I'd complain about the heat coming out of mine... But you can quite clearly see that I've voided the warranty. Lol
