    So my younger brother dropped his iPod Touch at the Giants game last night. I was wondering if anyone knew a good place to get the front and possibly back replaced? The screen isn't shattered just scratched up. Of course it was the one day he couldn't find his case. Anyways, does anyone if it would be cost effective? Apple charges $150 for a replacement.

    I think it's easy to get them replaced. But front glass can be expensive. I'm not sure if this is the case with iPod touch as well but I know that in iPhone 4 the glass is laminated to the LCD. So you have to replace both components. And thats a bit expensive. Look it up in google. Parts can be bought off ebay.

    Go with apple

    150 bucks is probably the best deal you are gonna get to replace everything....
