    I've dropped my iPod Touch about 3 times on carpet (Height was around 3-2 feet drops) and sometimes I notice while playing games that involve tilting (NFS Shift, Doodle Jump), it moves to the right on its own (just slightly), even when on a flat surface. Is this normal??

    Also, is there any way to test if the tilting of my iPod is still calibrated?

    Yea, there may have been some damage from the drops. If your warranty is still active, you can take it to Apple to see what they can do. Just don't mention that you dropped it.

    The accelerometer could be a bit off. It usually seems to correct itself when you drop it again (believe me, you will).

    Is there any way to check if it's calibrated or not?

    It doesn't need to be calibrated. It should be fine.
