    I have a 3rd gen ipod nano that has a broken screen and rear panel damage. It's kinda messed up (software wise) but it still plays music fine. I just recently got a package in the mail so i can send it in for recycling. But im on the fence about weither or not i should semd it in and get rid of it, or just keep it and fix it. Can anyone help?

    If it has sentimental value, keep it.
    If not,

    I'd probably recycle. If it was in mint condition I'd keep it for sentimental value but it looks trashed..

    You could fix it, buy you could buy a working one for less than the cost of the parts (far less the labour) to repair, no doubt.

    Depends - if you're sentimental about it, keep it. I have a drawer full of old electronics that I will "one day" get working...
