    I'm pretty sure i can bring it into bestbuy to get them to repair it but is it really worth restoring, (cause of JB) And risking them scratching it up or "Not a guaranteed fix" <--What a bestbuy employee told me. Do you think they'll handle my ipod w/ care and actually fix it? Well before you answer that is it worth bringing in for the backlight bleed you see in the photo?

    bring it in, they will probably just give you a new one because it's expensive to replace screens. I'm assuming they are too lazy to just replace the backlight.

    Yeah just bring it in. No use having a crappy ipod when you can have a nicer one.

    Just bring it in. You bought that iPod along with the warranty.

    Just take it in; if they scratch it up (they won't) go to their manager. Just make sure you have a before picture of it (WITH A DATE)taken right before you give it to them.

    thanks, if i give them give my case will they lose or something? I actually called them before and asked if replacement is possible, they said no buy repairs might be. But "not a guaranteed fix". What happens if they mess it up more new one or something?

    Why don't you just take it to apple? They will probably just replace it.

    If you send your iPod into Apple, That will REPLACE your iPod touch. That's why their 'repairs' are so fast.
