Don't quote me, but I believe apple does not repair broken screens. Of course I could be wrong. You can take it to an apple store and check. If not there are many DIY kits available on eBay that you can buy relatively cheap.

Might be worth contacting them as it could be covered under warranty. I know a few of my friends were able to do this.

Another option is if you live in a city usually shopping malls have repair shops for iPhones and iPod screens (because as you could imagine it is really common to smash the screens unfortunately, I did it twice). Doing it through a vendor cost me $120 though unfortunately (iPhone).

OR you could do the risky version (which I would not recommend) and buy a screen off the net and replace it yourself, there are tutorials on the internet. Probably not the best option if you're not 100% confident. But always an option. I know a heap of people that have been able to do it by them self who I wouldn't exactly say have the best background in iPod.iPhone repairs :happy:


Good luck anyway. :thumbsup:

Also I realise this post is late, but it may be beneficial to future members :)

If I were you, I rather buy a new one instead of replacing a new screen for your device. ;)
