    I bought an iPod Touch 2G about 6 months ago and got a big scratch on it. I also bought the AppleCare too. Does the AppleCare cover scratches that are made to the screen's glass? If not, how much would it be to replace just the screen? Thanks.

    no it doesnt

    applecare covers manufacuring defects, not defects by the user

    i want to say a screen replacement is around 200ish

    No ... and if the scratch is bad enough, it is probably cheaper to buy a new one.

    EDIT: Beaten to it.

    Any screen protectors that might make it less noticeable?

    Final Question:

    My brother has a Blackberry Storm. Will the screen protector he has work on my iPod Touch? I know there is a slight screen size difference, but will it work? Thanks.

    I would use it. If something ever happens to it like lets say you call up and say My head phone jack is messed up and the battery won't hold a charge maybe they will replace the entire ipod thats what I would do

    Possibly no; depends on how the screen protector is made. Don't forget the iPod touch screen is capacity, so it need the current on your finger and if it is insulated by a screen protector it won't work.

    The Bold screen is about half the size ;)
