    hey guys, just a heads up, yesterday i have my touch in my pocket with my phone that had a case one it(which has some metal thing to secure my phone) and next thing you know i have a bunch of scratches on the SCREEN i could not believe it i thought it was un scratch able. i call apple about the screen black issue and im getting a replacement so i am too worried about this one. i already ordered an invisible shield so im ok, but i just wanted to let y'all know about it.

    i took pics but there are on my home computer so ill post them tonight. i know the rule is no pic then it didnt happen so ill prove it tonight. i have not heard of this from anyone which is weird. And when i mean scratches, i mean pretty deep. just a heads up guys.

    It is glass, it will scratch.

    Shouldn't be carrying it naked in your pocket with other stuff like that. Especially since you were planning on returning it.

    I think it's been well-proven that iPod/iPhone glass is exceptionally hard to scratch. There's something wrong here.

    Are you sure you didn't leave the plastic screen cover on? I took the outer plastic off and was disappointed with my screen. Then I realized there was a second screen cover on it.

    That front is tempered glass. It will scratch but shouldn't scratch that easy. Somethings up.

    He said there was a metal clip in his pocket.

    With the motion of walking that will scratch the glass.

    Your hilarious. (your not supposed to tell the same joke 2X in the same thread)

    On a side note:

    If anyone has one of those 5.5G sleeves they work GREAT on the ipod touch!!!

    Not according to Ars Technica. They took a knife to the screen and couldn't scratch it.

    I'd also point out that my second joke was just an additive to the first joke... whatever, I guess we can't expect everyone to have a sense of humor..

    I am beginning to think no one on this site knows how to use a camera...


    None of those pictures are in focus... Not even close. It looks like your ceiling fan is the only thing in focus.

    P.S.

    You have a weird camera...

    yeah if you have a macro mode(usually a flower icon) on you camera use that to take pics of the scratches. BTW thats a cool point and shoot camera, I like the dual lens action.

    i hate to agree with newbie on this, but my old touch (week 37) had started getting a few scratches on it from being in my pocket the past few days, so its certainly possible

    the screen dosent have the same coating as the iphone, im sure no one here has both but my friend has an iphone and i play with all the time, and if you look at it at an angle it looks like it has small squares all over it, something that the ipod touch does not

    Arrgghh this sucks:mad:. I would hate to use cases with the iTouch. What's the point of shaving off those extra millimeters then?
