    well that sucks but you cant just replace the screen... you'd have to send it to apple which i believe is very close to the price of a new one

    actually you are wrong you can fix it it. To manually fix it you need to buy a new digitizer on ebay or what not. Also, you can search google and find places to send your ipod.

    If you do this manually BE CAREFUL. You will need specific glue and will have to open the ipod up and literally chisel out the old screen.

    I would know i did this with my touch and i broke my wifi because i cracked part of the chip.

    Recommendation: Send it to a third party company and pay bout $50 US for a full replace
