I have 2 ipod touches so I kept one in my closet because I wouldn't be needing it. I had it fully charged before I stored it. I turned the power off too. I took it out today so I could install ios4 on it and found that the battery was entirely dead. It has been dead for like 3-4 months. I'm charging it now, but do you guys think it will have a significant effect on the battery life? Thanks. BTW, is itunes not connecting for you guys too?
