    No.

     

    Like any warranty on any product, damage is not covered.

    Okay, thanks but over top of repairs it says
    "Warranty service for eligible repairs is available at no charge for twelve months from the date of purchase."

    Correct.

     

    Like any warrany on any product, damage is NOT an eligible repair.

    As an amplification:

    What type of damages are not covered by my warranty?

    Apple's Limited Warranty for iPod excludes coverage for damage resulting from accident, liquid damage, disassembly, unauthorized service and unauthorized modifications. Please review the warranty for further details. When a service is not covered under the warranty, Apple will return your original iPod to you without providing service, and may charge you for shipping costs and any applicable sales tax.

    An iPod that is ineligible for warranty service may be eligible for Out-of-Warranty (OOW) Service. For example, an iPod that has failed due to accidental damage or liquid damage is ineligible for warranty service but eligible for OOW service. However, certain damage is ineligible for OOW service, including catastrophic damage, such as the device separating into multiple pieces, and inoperability caused by unauthorized modifications. Please see Apple's Repair Terms And Conditions for further details.

    Note: There are Liquid Contact Indicators in iPod models manufactured after 2006. Please refer to this article to check if the Liquid Contact Indicator on your product has been triggered.
