    My friend got a new iPod Nano 6G since his Nano 5G has a broken screen. He gave it to me and I looked up the hardware serial number and saw that it is still under warranty. Can I get the screen replaced for free at the Apple Store? Also, how long would the repair take?

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    a cracked screen isn't something that is covered in warranty.

    Well, I don't think it will be free, especially if your friend didn't transfer any AppleCare for it to you.

    According to iFixit, the parts cost to fix are approximately:
    Glass: $20
    LCD Display (if the glass breakage ruined the display): $30
    Then there's labor.

    My guess is that you'd get a suggestion to buy a new one.

    So I'd have to drop the $89 out of warranty repair I'm guessing?

    Just went to an apple store today. The guy gave me their last blue 16gb nano 5g since I had one day left on my warranty and he was in a giving mood because of the holidays. Lucky me! Haha
