Ipod Touch 4g broken glass- help

Hello,

The other day I put my touch in my back pocket, sat down, pulled it out and the glass was shattered. Does anyone know of any places that will fix this for a reasonable price...only a month old and already broken....unbelievable.

I believe the new iPods have the glass mounted to the LED itself so technically you'll have to replace the whole screen. I guess you can take it into an Apple store and see how much it'll cost?

Unbelieveable like "wow, it's unbelievable i ruined my own product" or "unbelievable apple made a product of glass you can't sit on, apple sucks"

Ouch. Ooh....

There was another person on here who broke there's on a skiing trip.... Not sure what happened to it though.....

I would suggest calling Apple to see what they say.

Possible cheaper solution

Sorry your glass broke.
Although there aren't many spare parts floating around, as all the Touches have the same size screen you might be able to get a non functioning one off EBay for next to nothing and change the screens over. Good luck

Wouldn't the camera have something to do with the screen, LCD, stuff?
