    Hey guys i needed some help and opinions. I ordered a 32GB iPod touch 4 from the Online Apple Store around September 18. But i have noticed it has ALOT of light leakage on the sides, i get the ticking noise when recording video, screen gets VERY hot when playing games like Modern Combat 2, and the biggest issue is on the top left of my iPod if i gently press the screen in the top left corner i get the thing when u press a calculator screen to hard and it kinda like disforms the screen. Or when u press a computer screen to hard.

    So i was wondering if i took it to the apple store would they replace it for free? even though i purchased it back in september on the 18? and its not jailbroken.

    Thanks!

    Yes, they have to, you have a 1 year warranty. If anything goes wrong with your iPod during that time, they'll replace it with a refurb for free. If it's within 30 days (Or 90; I forgot which one it was), they may do a full exchange. But you'll get a replacement refurb for sure.

    you'll get a replacement. Only because of the ticking noise. The screen on any ipod will disform if u press it too hard. Just dont press it hard. u dont need to. my ipod also gets hot when playing games, but i dont mind.

    the light leak is kind of a problem for people who are extremely picky.

    If you go to the Apple Store, they'll give you one that day. The difference between new and refurb is the refurb has been used and some of the insides have been changed/replaced (the FLASH chip for example; data wiped) and the externals have been 100% replaced (No scratches).

    It was (actually has to be) tested before the Apple Store receives it.
