    I cracked my ipod touch while back and now im planing on buying a touch 2g. Every time i ask someone if they want to buy my ipod touch they laugh bc its cracked. But the other day i found a guy that would buy it for 85$ . Is that too much or too less. Everything functions right besides the freezing every once in a while . Also if i buy a new one how do i get all my old stuff from my first touch to my 2g touch? Do i just connect as it was my 1g too my computer and it automatically sync my 1g touch stuff to my 2g?O and does anyone have a idea on how much it would coust to fix the crack?Thanks

    Sorry about that crack. You might as well sell it for $85, as the crack on the screen is expensive to fix. How did you break it? It may be possible to get it fixed if it was covered by the warranty. The 2G iPod Touch is pretty nice, so if you want to sell it to that guy, I think it's a fair deal. Go for it.

    I had the touch since it came out but a couple months after i got it , it kept freezing so i got to the point where i couldn't take it no more and throw it on the floor. I didn't throw it that hard so i was surprise to see the crack but it was there. So the next day i took it to best buy where i have a 3 year warranty but they said the don't cover it if i broke it myself. I was so pissed that im never going to best buy to buy anything again . Also i swear when i was purchasing the touch they asked me if i would want a warranty if something happens to it but no they had to be a holes . I Got use to the crack so it doesn't really bother me but the freezing and the music skipping pisses me off.

    You are upset because you intentionally broke your device and were refused a replacement unit and you now blame Best Buy for that?

    I would definately sell it for the $85. To be fair though, I would tell the guy that there are some slight freezing problems with the touch.
    Which size 2G are you getting?

    And to tell the truth, why should Bestbuy have to pay for something that you did on purpose? I mean its one thing if you accidently knock it off a table or soemthing, but if you throw it on the floor?

    Anyways, good luck selling!

    Yea but u guys don't understand. It was acting up before i cracked it. Freezing , skipping , Etc .And yea i know i should of took it before i cracked it but i didn't bc im stupid .Also i paid for a warranty so they should of gave me a new one or at least fixed it if they had good customer service . That is why im buying everything at Costco for now on. Also i planning on buying a 16g .

    I definitely think it's not "too less" for the iPod being that it's cracked... Be lucky with the $85... I don't think it's even worth it for parts.

    I highly doubt that Costco or any other company with common sense would replace an iPod that you intentionally damaged... if it was acting up before or not. Your concepts about reality intrigue me.
