    When i called 1800 my apple to report my broken ipod touch with a cracked screen. when i told them my serial number they said it was a stolen one in there databases. I repeated it to them and they still said it was stolen so i hung up because ithought i was going to get areested some how. And now im scared to callback to get my new one. And i sure as hell dont want to go to a store in person thinking its stolen. What do i do

    No offence, hanging up makes you seem super guilty.

    If you have skilled enough (and skeezy enough), you could just buy a new one, replace the screen, and return the one you bought; claiming that it came with a broken screen.

    If you got it from Best Buy it's their fault it's listed as stolen.

    Best Buy will take it back. They won't check your serial number against legit/stolen iPods, but they WILL check your serial number to make sure it matches your receipt.

    Have fun wth that.

    You problably can't get a new one from Apple but try to go back to Best Buy with the reciet and there might be a warranty thing if you bought it recently.
