    I have a dead pixel on my 1g 16gb ipod touch, and I emailed apple and they said it will be covered by my warranty, and the nearest apple store is too far away. I was wondering if i took it into a licensed apple dealer store (circuit city, samys camera, etc.), will they be able to replace it? And will it be replaced by a 1g or a 2g?

    Where did you buy it from?

    If you bought it from a retail store, you'll need a receipt to their store.

    If you get it replaced via Apple, you'll get a refurb 1G. If you bought it at a retail store, you'll get what you paid back.

    I bought it from apple directly. Id rather not wait for apple to receive it.. dilly dally for awhile, say ooohh he needs a replacement then wait another 5-10 days to receive a new ipod. Just wondering if i could trade it in at a authorized reseller.

    Call them up and ask them. It's the only way you'll know for sure.

    Dead Pixel

    I have the same problem on my 1g ipod touch. I have about 3 different dead pixels on my screen that are not close to each other. The dead pixels are red. I bought my ipod from costco in december of last year. Will I be able to send it to apple to get a new one or do I just have to deal with it?
    Thanks

    I think I have devised a plan...and EVIL PLAN. nah jk. I going to go to Mac Mechanic (Mac repair store) and see if they'll replace it with a 2g. If not im gonna get the refurb 1g and sell on ebay, then buy a shiny new 2g.
