Sorry, doesn't look like you'll be able to get a free return... you'll just have to buy another one. I cheated them once with my 1st Gen iPod Nano, I dropped it in water and I went to return it and they just immediately replaced it, you could try, but I doubt they would for you.

i wouldnt do that. I read an article about how they have a a water detector on it to tell if you dunked it. Its inside the headphone jack. I think the article was on engadget...

anyone know what im talking about?

I heard about that.

dunking it in water if it still works is a very bad idea, because most likely it will not get replaced with that sensor there and then you will have a non working iPod with a gash in it.

Yea there is a water-detector sticker inside the headphone jack, i can barely see mine

Also, I feel your pain, I had my itouch in my shirt pocket at work. I bent over to pick up a keyboard and it slid ever so perfectly out of my pocket, corner first, right onto solid brick flooring, bounced for what seemed like 15 MINUTES. Other than a couple of very small chips in the side, it seems to take a little bit of a punch

I feel that apple might have all the areas covered and have come to expect someone to try and scam them. good luck :)

Microwave the sucker. Worth a try, and you can probably get your money back from posting it on Break.com.

Oh, yeah, and you would be my hero!
