    When I try to access the logon for my gmail it wont let me type anything on the left hand side of the keyboard...

    As in: Q, Caps, 1, hyphen...

    Even if I try the drag across to select the letter/number method it wont do it.

    The right hand side of the screen is fine... its just the left that is jacked.

    What about responsiveness when NOT using the keyboard?

    Can you use the left side of the screen to scroll web pages, photos etc ?

    try going to a dif. website and typing there. if it still doesnt work then try restarting the ipod. and if that fails then get it exchanged for a new one.

    Will do!

    Also on a side note: I have a 37 in my serial... Could this be part of the problem?

    I'm not sure what the significance of the 37 is....was there a bad run of iPods with this serial number?

    Good luck with the restore. I think you'll have good luck. If there are areas of your screen where the keyboard doesn't work, but you can scroll content in those areas, it would suggest the touch interface is fine, and there's just some software glitch going on.

    I've just heard that the 37 in the serial means that it is a WEEK 37 iPod and was prone to problems...

    cant remember where I read this.
