    My 2nd generation iPod touch's rubber seal next to the screen has pulled up on about half of the right side. I can't get it to go back in.
    Is this something I should be concerned about? If so, do you think Apple would repair/replace it under the 1 year warranty?

    Thanks.

    DO NOT GET IT WET! Seems simple enough right? That rubber stops water and dust from getting in your ipod. If your warranty is still active they will fix it for you.

    Cool, I think I'll bring it in next week.

    Apple always replaces them instead of repairing them, correct?

    What exactly is a refurbishment?

    Like you see ads that say refurbished ipod touch, what do they do?

    Sounds dumb, but I never quite understood it.

    Refurbished is when they take a used iPod, take the working components out of it, and replace the outer casing and anything that isn't working with new components. With Apple, it functions and looks like new.

    I'll probably sell my replacement for a good bit so I can upgrade to the 3rd gen.

    What do you need to bring them to show them your warranty and get it replaced (besides ipodtouch
