    Basically the headphone's metal end, broke inside the headphoen jack and im outa ideas on how to remove it from there, I called apple this morning and they want to charge me £120 and it could take up to 15 working days til i get it back ---- an iTouch here in london costs £199.95 now i think apple jst wants to rip me off and if i cnt fix it then i might have to wait til the new iPhone 3G comes out which would prob cost less than £150

    that is stink. well u could use tweezers, or use a toothpick, and superglue. or a chisel. try and get underneath the headphone jack and pick it out gradually
