    O.k so i have a 1st gen iPod touch. I've had it for almost a year and it has worked perfectly. today I went to use it and noticed that the physical home button has gotten sort of stuck. I can feel it move/wiggle around so its not stuck under the glass but i can no longer use it to go to my Home screen. I am stuck on the music app and have no access to the other apps. If i go to the Apple store do you think i could possibly exchange it for a new one or will i have no choice but to send it in for repair?

    ---------Update---------

    I went into the Apple store with a broken iPod and came out with a new refurbished one.
    I'm a happy customer :)

    Unless you got Apple Care your warranty is most likely up, but a simple stuck home button they might fix for free. It depends really on who you get too help you, some workers are nicer about these sorta things then others and they sorta stretch the warranty for you. Then there are others that are stricter...
