It's not really Target's fault. Some person bought a new iPod from Target, put his or her broken one back in the package, kept the new one and returned the old one in the package. Not a very ethical thing to do, but it happens.

Just explain the issue to Target and hopefully they'll replace it with no issue. If not, then feel free to raise hell.

Eh, if they do check it this time, then they'd probably think you were trying to pull one over on them and you'd be screwed. I would explain the situation upfront.

Aren't iPod Touch packages transparent from the front?

I'm not doubting you, and this kind of thing certainly does happen, but I thought the transparent plastics would certainly allow you to see the cracked display. Unless perhaps there's something specific to Target in play here (such as the device being transferred from a secure cabinet directly to a bag) that i'm not aware of.

Anyway, sounds like a returned unit. As mentioned, bring it up with the store and ask for a replacement.
yes, it it but its not the whole screen...only part of the left corner...and when you turn it on...the screen doesn't work there...you cant really tell when its off...well..i can now that i know its there
