My 80gb iPod ($350) is still under warranty and has a damaged earphone jack. I took it to my local apple authorized seller to get it serviced but the customer service guy at the store told me it was probably not going to be covered under warranty because the jack looked "abused". I'm from Puerto Rico, there are no apple stores in here and apple wont let me send my iPod by mail, so this is the only option I have. If they make me pay for the repair, how much should I be willing to spend in the repair vs. buying a new iPod. Thanks in advance.
