    Scanning through the threads, its pretty obvious that there is a lot more hardware problems of the iPod touch 3rd gen than previous generations.

    So, let's discuss.
    1. Answer the poll.
    2. Then go into depth about it in a post if you want.

    Obviously its annoying (especially for a company like Apple, with such a great record of quality control in the past).

    Anyways, I have backlight bleed, and my home button seems to 'stick' (not respond) quite often.

    Anyone else?

    Come to think of it, my home button has some problems. Not often, but once in awhile. Not that big of a problem, I just need to press it again and it works.

    No I don't know if it's covered in the warranty.

    I have a big back light bleed in the left side of my iPod (it's the full side) and also I have another problem that I think my re-jailbreak has caused. I can't hear the vocals of some songs or they are either faded in the background while I can hear the guitars fine. Also the drums tend to fade in the background of the song also.

    I have two different Problems!
    1. The lower left corner of the Black glas around the screen can be pushed in!
    2. Home Button sometimes recognizes 2-3 clicks even when just clicking once.

    bottom left of my screen seems to push in at times when i touch. but only with a bit of force. i think this is with all 3G's though. nothing else really. home button occasionally presses twice when i click it once but could be due to jailbreaking it.

    I can push the bottom left of my screen in but it doesn't bther me much.
    also if someone posts who is jailbroken they should put that they are because that could be a reason too.
