    Is it possible to remove the custom engraving?

    I've seen people brushing the rear cause they like the look, and so on, but is it possible to either remove it - by removing a layer of the surface and polishing it back to the original colour, or getting a new rear case?

    I've not seen any on ebay but i'm sure someone would do a rear case replacement...

    I doubt the engraving will lose you near as much money as how much it would cost to get a new case, if you even can get one. What does it say on it? The engraving probably won't cost you more than $25 or so, but what do I know?

    it was an apple store laser engraving, and says:

    I'm Andy's iPod! If found, please
    email [my email address]

    so it's pretty personal. grr.

    i'll see. thanks anyways. as you can see i've just ordered a 40gb 4g, had the sense this time not to engrave it!

    Tell them it's value added because you'll provide a lost and found service!
