Lol I'm pretty sure there's a difference between a glitch, and just breaking something because you dropped it too hard :P

If my TV remote broke because I dropped it out the window, I wouldn't call it a glitch. Keep hold of your Tamas people! ;)

Technically a glitch is a minor programming error that can cause serious, however rare problems. I would say a bug is a programming error that can affect the way you use something due to the seriousness, severity or plain annoyance of experiencing the bug.

I know it might BREAK break, like, instantly, but I'm talking about the kind of thing that would happen like this. Let's say it's someone wondering what happened to their Tama, and these are some posts they made in the What Happened To My Tamagotchi?! section:

"Help! My V6 broke! I accidentally dropped it on the patio, and the screen faded. I tried replacing the battery, and downloaded it, but found that poor Emma my Chantotchi had lost all her Music Skill Points except one! Then I went to the shop to try to buy some pie, and found that all my normal points were gone too! What will Emma do?! She will starve to death without money! So I just decided to take a break from my V6 and figure this out another day"

A few days later...

"I put the battery back in my V6 and downloaded it, but I was welcomed back by an envelope with "BYE BYE, PUSH A+C" underneath it! I looked at dead Emma's stats; she was Gozarutchi, 99 LB, O skill points, 0 points, 99th Generation! Emma was supposed to be second generation! And she was certainly not anywhere NEAR that heavy! She wasn't Gozarutchi! And she wasn't DEAD when I took the battery out; when I did it, all her hearts were full! What on Earth happened??? R.I.P. Emma :( "

A few days after that...

"Right. Now I am CERTAIN my V6 is badly glitched. Or was. I restarted my V6, and it hatched a baby girl, Myra. I took care of Myra, and went to update my log about her when she took her nap during babyhood. When I came back, the screen had gone blank. I replaced the battery, then the Tama said "WAIT!" and beeped, and I saw the time setting screen! I tried to quit, but it told me to enter my birthday and user name. An egg showed up. My V6 had reset. Then the egg hatched, and it was a baby boy. I named him Mike. The EXACT same thing happened with him! Then, when I tried changing the battery, it just buzzed and let out alot of laboured half-beeps. I tried another battery. The same thing happened. My V6 was broken, all because of this weird glitch."

That is only an example of the bump glitch, but exactly the same thing happened to me with Dazzela my Dazzilitchi. So this example of a Tamagotchi Memorial post is an example of a Tama breaking, NOT the bump glitch:

"Title: R.I.P. Jim
Description: You were a true Music Star, while you lasted

My V6 recently broke. OK, here's the story:
I was walking down to the shop to buy some crisps, and my Mametchi V6 Jim was attached to my belt. Suddenly, I heard the sound of the keychain breaking. I looked down, and my V6 was lying on the pavement. I picked it up. The screen had faded. Luckily, I had my Tamagotchi Emergency Kit with me, and I replaced the battery. Nothing happened. My V6 was broken. Sorry Jim, I will NEVER use that faulty keychain again!"

So basically, the bump glitch is different to a Tama simply dropping and breaking right away.

But you dropped it so that why it doesn't work, it's like saying that if I dropped my new iPhone on the floor and the screen wouldn't respond to touch, I wouldn't call it a glitch because I caused it by dropping my IPhone. it's the same with your V6. It's not a glitch because you dropped it and it broke.

People just don't understand what is and what isn't a glitch. For example, I once saw someone complaining that their tamagotchi had 'glitches' because the screen was leaking. The reality? They had dropped it and the screen cracked.

Okay, HELP ME!! I just recently got a new V6 Music Star and i just hatched it this morning. Just now, i tried to connect it with my V5 which is also in the 'just hatched' stage. I know that you are supposed to connect using the V5 and so i started with the V5. I went to the heart icon, pressed 'game', and pressed 'others' for my v6. Then, i pressed the 'B' button on my V5. Suddenly, the screen stated 'download' and 'reset'. Is this considered a glitch? I dropped my v5 once but it was AFTER i took out the battery... And, has anybody experienced this before? I really want to connect them together!!

A few people have experienced it before. Did you try replacing the battery?

I think it being a "glitch" depends on the version of the Tama you have.
As you can see, many v3 owners are claiming the power of the reset button and us Tama-Go lovers know it'll just keep bouncing it's way on! It seems like the older/oldest and newest version have more of a protection against the fatality of a dropped Tama's future.

However, fact is, just be careful and don't drop it.

(Though, this can't really be called a glitch, as a glitch is a problem in the programming)

This isn't a glitch, it's called breaking your Tama XD. I've not dropped mine yet cos I'm uber careful. Though my housemate dropped mine from the sofa arm to the carpeted floor.

I didn't react and was acting chill but inside I was crying :rolleyes:

When I was in 2nd grade I had a v1, and I was CONSTANTLY dropping it outside after lunch during recess. My best friend and I played a really pointless game... toss a stuffed animal/Tamagotchi high into the air and try to catch it. Bonus points if you tossed it over telephone wires. Well, my v1 was very hardy and never broke on me (whew). It still works today. But I remember one of my stuffed animals had a fuzzy coat and I was tossing it up while I was leaning up against the school building, and it stuck to the bricks on the wall. About 20 feet up. Well, I threw a lunch box at it until it fell, LOL.

Please can someone close this topic? It's just turning into an argument.
