    Just got a brand new from China Ipod Touch and it freezes up when I type, gets hot and won't play music. Called for help and they said to restore. Have restored it 3 times and its still the same. Looks like I'll have to send it back and wait for a new one unless someone has any suggestions. Has anyone had this problem before?

    I got a 32gb Touch and have not had this problem before. Did you update it to the latest version via iTunes?

    You should simply take it to the Genius Bar. They'll help you. It sounds like a hardware issue.

    That's really awkward. Take it to the Apple Store and tell us what they say ;).

    1st Gen 32Gb touch. No problems with it.

    Suggest that you take yours to the local Apple Store Genius bar and see what they say. If something is wrong hardware wise, more than likely they will offer you a replacement.

    Yes it was restored with the latest update from Itunes. Appreciate the quick feedback; I was hoping there was a miracle fix. Will take it to the store and see what they say and will report back. Since it was engraved I'll have to wait for a new one to be shipped.

    That definitely sounds like a hardware issue. I wouldn't say their all junk!
