Alright dudes, so I broke my ipod like a year ago because I had it in my back pocket and sat on it. The screen got messed up and not it is just grey. But everything else works on it so i have been just keeping it on shuffle mode.


So finally I decided to take it to the Apple store to see what I can do. So now I need you guys help coming up with a good, believable excuse so that I could maybe get it fixed or replaced with a refurbished one or something.



I know that in UG there are some good bull****ters about there, so if you all could help my come up with some good ideas I would really appreciate it.

You plugged it in to you computer and then you came bacck and the screen was broken.

But seriously


Can you not just say you dropped it.
#3
your screwed, i use to work for there tech support so i can tell you that if they do bother there ass to fix it, you'll end up with a refurbished ipod, that will probably not last very long. what model is it?

anyways what is it like, if the screen isnts cracked on the outside but is all smudged under the screen then you could say its a deffective screen since there is no damage to the outside, if there is a crack though they probably wont do much.
#4
That happened to mine and I told the guy that it was like that when I took it out of the package, and the dumb ass believed me and gave me a new one.

I was ****in happy as ****
#5
my screen cracked and i was like **** i can't get a warrenty on this but then it stopped working so i got another one

i dunno though, the one above is good

you put too much music on it and it destroyed your screen?

yeah, if it's in good condition, saying it was like that when you took it out of the package might be good.

as long as he doesn't ask for a receipt.

This. When mine was all scratched up, I brought it in for a new battery and they gave me a refurb ipod. It was awesome. Ah, the good ol' days of the 20gb black and white screen ipod.

say that you were flying in a helicopter off the coast of California, and a dolphin jumped and hit the helicopter. when this happened, your ipod fell onto a the floor and a crewmember placed his foot over the screen and crunch. DAMN.

Lol, that's a good idea, iPods have easy as **** ciruitry.
And you should be able to tell them almost anything and they'll get you a new one, iPods are good like that.
But you said you broke it like a year ago, that could be a problem... But most likely not, just tell them that you accidentally put it through the wash or something.

the "heavy metal" on the ipod was so "heavy" that it broke the screen

forget taking the iPod in.
Tell them you already took it in for repair four weeks ago and haven't heard back. They'll obviously tell you they have no record of it going in for repair so accuse them of losing it. Then just refuse to leave until they give you a new one, if they won't budge just mention the cops and they may just hand one over to get rid of you
#23
tell them you lforgot it in front of a window with the sun beating on and it ****ed ur screen
cuz that happend with my old phone and i got a shiny new one...that i droped down the stairs later that day...
so it might work for apple
P.S. If you have any complaints about anything i have said, please put them in the form of a kiss and address them to my ass. Thank you.

I know that iPhones have a replacement deal where if user was at fault, you can still get one at a reduced price, so worst case scenario you probably can straight up buy a refurbished one from the store.

That being said, your best bet is to just say that your screen just stopped displaying, and you aren't sure why, say that it was working fine, than the screen froze up, and when the screen went into sleep mode, it never turned back on...but you strangely were able to still use it without any video output...
#25
If nothing else works, you can sell it on eBay and get just enough money to get a Creative Zen. It worked for me last time, despite the fact that my iPod was beyond repair.
I get very tense around apples...Well, I get very tense generally. I think I've fallen into the trap of blaming fruit.
