    Well looks like my iPod touch has the light leak issue. This is my 2nd iPod touch 4G. The 1st one had some lock up issues, but never noticed the light issue. This one has that issue, so I really don't want to take it back get another one, load everything back on etc etc... but its bugging me. So I am torn.

    What have you all done, those who had the light leak issue on the side?

    Me. I figure I'm not going to bother with returning it, with the high risk of getting the same or worse problems.

    It does bug me a bit a night, but oh well.

    I have a tiny light leak, too. Its like the size of a pinhole though so I'm not gonna return it.

    lol, just get a case that covers that part of the ipod ( Which is most cases nowadays ). I have it too, but i just covered it up with a nice sleak case.

    What kind of case do you have? And how big is your light leak? When I get mine, I want a case that will cover up the light leak fully. That is... if it comes with a light leak ofcourse.

    Which case did you get?

    And does anyone know if you can return and exchange at a different Apple store than the one you originally purchased, if I decide to do this? Maybe I will just get a case, because it sounds like the likelihood you will get another one with the same issue is quite high. Grrr, irritating!

    If I were you, I'd probably return it again. Yeah, its annoying, but I believe its worth it if it means I'll be getting my money's worth. Especially if you ordered from Apple. I'd also shoot them a complaint via email and expect them to compensate me for my trouble. Maybe a few free song credits or something, or a free case.
