Returning engraved iPod.

Hey guys, I just bought the product red iPod and it will be my first iOS device, that I actually own. I'm not new to apple. But I am to owning my own product, especially a red 5th gen touch, since no one I know has a 5th gen, and I'm sure no one around here has a red lol. Anyways, if one day I break the screen or it malfunctions, I've heard you can't return or fix the engraved iPods. I actually risked it and engraved mines (so if lost or stolen its hard to deny its mines, and sell it) is this true? Or can I go to an apple store if something does go wrong? Seeing how its red and engraved I think the store will trip on me saying they won't replace it. But I may be wrong. Any info is appreciated

Engraving by Apple will not void your warranty, however, it is non-refundable.

So you think you'll get bored of it in a week?

Did you think this purchase through?

If it breaks:

In an Apple Store: it can be replaced with a generic device (i.e. with no engraving).

Via AppleCare over the Phone: They can order you a replacement with the same engraving. You cannot, however, change the engraving, and it adds about 5 days to the replacement time.

Yeap. If you really didn't know if you were gonna like it or not then you shouldn't have gone and engraved it though. Hope you are enjoying it!
