Thread: iPod Touch DEAD PIXELS (Can I restore, then send to Apple?)

    Default iPod Touch DEAD PIXELS (Can I restore, then send to Apple?)
    Ok I will explain this in the most simplistic way possible...

    I have an iPod Touch that is "jail-broken", has installer 3 and is customized with many 3rd party apps. I also recently discovered I have 3 dead pixels in the middle of my screen! I called apple and they said they could replace it no problem. My question is, If i go into iTunes and then click restore iPod, will it restore it back to default? If so then will apple be able to tell that I have previously "jail-broke" it? Any suggestions would be great. Thanks

    would you be sending it to them via mail? or going to an apple store? because when it first came out, i took in my iphone like a month into having it back to the store and was told they could not replace it because of a few dead pixels. took it to another store and they replaced it (tho i had to lie a bit and said the battery life was bad).

    I called apple and they told me if it was my negligence then obviously I would have to pay 250$! If its a defect then its free. I have taken an unbelievable amount of care with my iTouch (i have an invisible shield on it so there are no scratches)
    I wanted to be sure that they would not know anything and then not give me a replacement.
