    I cant post pics before anyone asks....

    Ive had this light leak for 3-4 days, it started about a half an inch right along the buttons and no where else, but i took the case off this morning to let the ipod breath while charging, it was before i went to school so it was dark, I noticed my light leak has started to spread, its now almost the entire leangth of the ipod on the volume buttons side and its like a spot of light where the camera is, i have a warranty..i think... They didnt say anything about a warranty when i bought it..from target...

    i think i should take it back but my parents dont think so, they think its gunna happen again since it happens when the ipod gets warm and it loosens the glue... idk what to do, im afraid ill get worse defects on another one...any idea? thanksss

    hey i think you should return it but what?? 4G has glue? my 3G's glass started loosening and it clicks when i touch the screen in a spesific corner. is that because the glue loosened from heating?

    I think it's a 14-day return policy if you didn't like it, but the replacement option is for one full year.

    I have the light leak too, but I don't know about taking it back because I'm afraid that they give me another with a worse problem.
