    Anyone else notice that the glass edges are pretty sharp? When I run my finger along the edge of the screen, I can feel that some sections feel sharper than others...kind of like it's more raised. I went to Best Buy and Apple stores and the demo models had similar issues.

    Curious if other find this as well.

    Hmmm....maybe I should seriously think about getting it exchanged. However, I had an engraving...so I need to check the policy (I'm guessing they can only "fix" it, no replace).

    Yeah, it's a bit sharp. Not nearly enough to cut anything though.

    I fixed the sharp edge on my iPod Touch 4G by carefully filing it down with a nail file followed by an emery board. It took all of five minutes to take off all the sharp edges around the screen. I angled the nail file at about a 45 degree angle to the screen so that it was rubbing only on the sharp edge and not the glass of the screen or the metal of the edge of the Touch.

    By the way, I think the sharp edge you can feel around the edge of the screen is not the glass at all. It appears to me to be a slim plastic strip that goes between the glass and the metal body. I suspect that when a iPT that has this sharp edge it just means this plastic strip was riding a little high when it was glued in place.
