I was actually going to put a screen protector on my Ipod Touch, but just kept putting it off for some reason. I have a scratch on my screen now, and while it's not a nightmare problem that will totally ruin my Touch, I would rather have it be scratch-free. Is there any way to fix this problem, replace screens, etc? From talking on the phone with someone from an Apple retail store, they told me that only the iPhone has an LCD screen that can be taken off and replaced; they also told me that it probably wouldn't be taken by Apple, even though it's still under waurantee (i.e. It's only about 2-3 months old). It would be nice to get a bit more help from a company that I payed $300 plus on. Scratch resistant my as$.

I guess I'm taking a chance, but I'm ordering something from Amazon called "idrops." Some claim its miraculous, while others say that it doesn't fix anything. Just have to take the chance. If I somehow luck out and get the scratch off, I already ordered some LCD screen protectors. I definitely learned my lesson...Just wish they wouldn't deceive people by saying that the screen is "scratch-resistant."

You can try one of those crystal clear screen protectors, or buy a new screen on ebay

Most malls have cell phone kiosks that sell those. Have them do it.

Where you buy them the people can normally do it for you, it's extra money but it's def. worth it. People try to do it by themselves all the time and never succeed and it ends up looking like crap, and peels like crazy.
