I've had my iPod touch since they first came out. The first one was bum so Apple sent me a replacement. Now I've had this one for a few weeks and started to notice something that is bothering me. The black plastic rim that goes around the screen seems to be made out of a softer plastic. It also has very sharp edges. These edges can get dented very easily. And I've been treating my touch like a baby because the case that I ordered won't be here until the 16th. It's the TuffWrap from XtremeMac. But something else happens to these dents if they go deep enough. They show up as white. The black plastic appears to be painted or coated black over a white base. Just wanted to warn you guys. If you are going to take you touch out into the wild before buying a case, be very careful with that area.

Plastic of any colour fractures with a white fracture wound, its just something that plastics do. Sorry to hear that you've been having problems with it though, I really want one - especially with the news of the SDK. Maybe I'll get one to go with my new MacBook in the new year... Razz

THIS ADVICE IS FOR THE BRAVE AT HEART: DON'T BLAME ME FOR MORE DAMAGE!!!

I learned a trick many moons ago to battle those pesky white "spots" or "creases" in any colored plastic parts. It's simple but on an iPod Touch or iPhone I'd be a bit leary. All you need to do is heat up the plastic with a hair dryer!! You may also try a soldering iron or any other source of heat, don't apply heat long, just long enough to warm the plastic so it can go back to where is was, the color should just about all come back too!!!

YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!!

WOW hackersmovie, that sounds just a tad dangerous, especially with a £200/~$350 gadget!

Especially if you use a soldering iron! I once melted my fingers together after picking up a soldering iron - it had just been unplgged and was still effing hot! Needless to say, I never, ever touch any metal parts of soldering irons anymore!

Also, using a hairdryer or similar would heat up the metal casing and could cause damage to the innards (in case you needed any more antipursuasion!)

AGREED!! If your careful you can pull it off. Patience is the key. It does work, I've done it tons of times to various items.

A soldering iron! Shocked

That sounds pretty scary. I think I'm going to keep my touch under wraps until the case gets here. I forgot to mention this, but I was able to use an ultra fine tip Sharpie to cover some of the white spots. It seems to be holding well.

o.k. o.k. there's a bit of misunderstanding here. When I said "soldering iron" I did not mean for you to touch it to the plastic! Just hold it close to it, relax, I'm not an idiot...er..um...I don't think so anyway Shocked Very Happy Confused Cool Sad Surprised Laughing Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed

Many people are often mistaken that they aren't Very Happy Very Happy .
