    Hi.

    I have just joined the forum to see if you guys can offer me some advice.

    I have broken the screen on my iPod touch 2G. I crashed my motorbike and it was in my pocket.

    I have been to the reccomended service locations near where I live (Mannheim, Germany) but they told me to call Apple....

    Apple told me to see them.... hence i am a bit confused...

    A pic below of the damage but I wanted to know if I can order parts in europe and if it is easy to replace the glaas or if I need to replace more?

    Thanks in advance.

    Jez

    Go to the local Genius bars or iPod stores; they'll give you a price.





    (or you could say you got the iPod like that from the box, doubt they'd believe you

    Genius bars?

    I tried them and they just said contact apple...........

    I was hoping to find some parts online and look at replacing it myself.

    I guess they would know when it was sold via the serial number and when it was registered in my iTunes account............

    go on craigslist and search something like ipod glass replacement, and i can almost guarantee you can find someone to replace it with OEM parts for around 80 bucks. apple will charge you $200, i believe.

    Guys, read his post! He lives in GERMANY. Craigslist isn't going to work for him and I don't think there are any Apple Stores there either.
