    Well I knew it would happen sometime soon. I take care of all my electronics like every geek. And my touch fell from knee height and hit the ground. Funny thing is it landed on its metal back and the force put two huge scratches starting at the home button going out. Well I have been browsing around looking how to replace the screen. Everything works fine though I can use it normal and nothing seems to be wrong. I think its just the glass that is broke not the layer below. What is a good place to order a replacement? Ebay?

    Applestore i think, good luck opening that thing up and replacing the part you might just screw it up even more. i wouldnt tamper with sensetive technology like that. but have you considered buying a good case for your ipod

    i have a dlo jamjacket case, and its pretty good, its silicone, and it absorbs a lot of shock. i dropped it a few times but never highter than knee hight but i got carpet so...


    Best thing to do is to send it to apple.

    Go to your nearest Apple store and get a replacement screen.
