    I've read somewhere, and of course can't remember or find it, that someone got a case for their touch that had a magnet to hold the flap on the case closed and it caused the touch to misfunction. Anyone hear of that? Bill:confused:

    Do a search for magnet on this forum, you will see a discussion on the same topic. It was sufficiently debunked for my satisfaction, but if you want, you can call Mythbusters :)

    Thanks-I did search, got nothing, and I suspect I misspelled it. Thanks again. Bill

    one person claims that it caused problems on his touch.

    i doubt if it does, at least it has not to my touch with a battery flap on the cover.

    your average fridge magnet (which is probably similar to the one found in a case) will do nothing even to an ipod with a hard drive (i've tried)

    my Touch case f***ed up my iPod

    after opening the case once, the iPod wouldn't work while in the case...after opening three times the Touch wouldn't work at all and had to be rebooted via computer

    that said, i did get mine el cheapo from hong kong for US$5
