    Hi, well the unbelievable happened today, i dropped my podtouch and the screen is smashed to bits.

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    but my questions are these, does the apple warranty cover it ?
    will i have to pay a fee to fix it ?
    or will i have to fork out £200 for a new ipod ?

    im going to phone comet (shop i bought it) as soon as i can find the number, to see if the guarantee covers it, because some shops will dispute over accidental damage etc. etc.,

    im not so good with warranty's etc.
    so any help appreciated.

    Of course it's not under warranty. They charge about $200 US to replace the screen.

    OK, Thanks.

    does anyone know of a place where it could get repaired cheaply ?

    Do a google, there are other places besides Apple that might be a tad bit cheaper.

    It may just be time to fork out the cash for a new 2G Touch. In the long run, that may be the cheeper alternitive to geting the 1G repaired.

    yea, i was going to get it replaced under house insurance, but it would cost £50-£80 still.

    im now getting a 2G for christmas, im still keeping my 1G Though as its still working perfectly.

    i got it at £219 16 GB, which is the same price i paid for my 1G in april.
