    Hey i just bought a belkin armband for my itouch 2g. It is awsome and makes lifting/jogging so much easier. My problem however is that I am worried my sweat will damage the device. Is this a problem? An issue?

    It is made out of neoprine and is in no way soaked when I am done. Mostly a thin line of sweat on the outside of the armband but the device itslef is only warm/moist a big.

    However just today I discovered what I believe to be a dead pixel and I am affraid I will destroy my device.

    Any one?

    Any kind of moisture will disrupt the iPod..
    Try not to get any in it.

    I just got home from the gym and I am a sweater!! Guess what... itouch wont do anything!!!! It started by not letting me turn the music off after exercise, then it completely shut off!! I am debating on letting it dry out a few days or calling apple to complain???

    I have a 3GS that I always have in my armband case. I am always working with my hands and do not trust my phone in my pocket. The Belkin armbands are really nice, they work great. I have worked myself into a sweat many, many times and never had my phone gotten wet or damp for that matter.

    The normal procedure is to let your phone dry on the sun but IDK if that works or has any bad consequence on your iPod, You can't complain with Apple but there is a chance you could complain with the guys who sold you the armband... Anyhow, good luck
