4th Generation iPod Touch Screen Cracked Out Of Warranty

I accidentally dropped my iPod Touch and the screen was damaged. I bought it at an Apple Store, but I didn't bother to get AppleCare for it  because I figured it would be a waste of money as I rarely drop electronics and Apple products are very tough. 

 

How much would it cost to have it repaired at Best Buy?

 

By the way, I want to actually get it repaired, not replace it, and I want to get it repaired rather than buying a kit and fixing it myself.

Honestly just buy a new one. To repair a iPod screen is generally half the cost of a new device!

Oh and Best Buy never actually fixes your item. Even if you had the BTP they would keep yours and send you a refurbished unit.

Sometimes you can go to a Apple store where they will replace the screen right there, sometimes they have to send it off for repair themselves, sometimes they will give you a new one on the spot for the price of repair.

But you are still looking at half the cost of a new device.

Hi JFraser,

 

I'm sorry to hear about your iPod Touch. We are only able to repair iPods that are covered under a Geek Squad Protection plan. If you're looking to pay outright for a repair, I would encourage you to visit the Apple store for assistance.

 

Thanks for shopping and good luck!
