    It seems when I tap near the top of the screen, it registers a touch a few mm above where I tapped. I confirmed this using the Draw 4 Free app. It only does this near the top, so I'm always missing button presses on apps with tabs and such. I can compensate by tapping a little lower than the requested button is. Anyone else have this problem?

    Should I exchange it? I bought it at Best Buy on Sept. 8th. It doesn't have a light leak, clicking during recording or other bugs and a replacement could have these problems.

    Wait a moment - in Draw 4 Free I flipped the iPod over and it exhibited the same inaccurate presses on the other end of the screen (bottom is now top) and the "top" became accurate. I guess this is software-related. I'll hang on to this one.

    Being an iOS n00b, I just sync it in iTunes, and click "Restore"? Will it then resync all my contacts, apps, music, etc?

    Uhh never restored so..

    But I think if you got it all checked to sync on every connect then I think it will sync when restored.


    Someone correct me if I am wrong.

    Fixed that. This option is under the "Info" tab on the sync screen.

    Hmm I am going to assume that a light leak means that you see light shining from the gap between the screens glass and the metal shell. I have had that on both of the iPod touchs I own. Is it really a big problem?
