So yea...sleeping while driving down the road...woke up, seen a nice car for sale (car shopping also), and didnt reliaze what was on my lap. So there it went. Boom. on the asphault (</3 asphault). But anyway. I tried to keep that baby as nice as i could. I bought a front + back screen protector from some company online. i like the protector and all....yea. The black sides on the ipod is not covered by the protector. Anyway, should i take it back to Best Buy saying the battery is really bad on it, asking for another. Also..ive had it for 2 months, bought the extended warranty. So i was just wondering. Will Best Buy make me send it to apple since its still in warranty or what. IF someone has done this with Best Buy, or something similar, Please Post. Thanks,
Salincer

Seen it way too many times, Best Buy will tell you that the iPod is covered by Apple, go to an Apple Store and let them see the iPod, they will either cover it or not, under 2 months expect to have them do a battery test, leave it for 24-48 hrs. This is where Best Buy gets you, if Apple switches out your ipod your serial number changes, so if a year later you have problems Apple will say out of warranty and Best Buy will say the swapped ipod isn't covered since the serial number is different.

Hope for a nice genius at the bar and don't drop the next one.

You ain't got a hope in hell. How many idiots do you think have tried this?

Then ask yourself how many have actually got away with it. I'll let you in on a little secret, the answer is less than 1.

The member of staff will look at it straight away and be able to tell that it was dropped.

Make Apple pay for your stupidity ?

Next time buy a Zune and have that multi-million dollar making company pay for it, oh yeah where are the Microsoft/Windows retail stores.

Ever get a flat tire from a nail or curb ? Maybe you should get that multi-million dollar company to pay for new tires then.

So, just because they make money, it's okay to defraud them? Nice morals.

Ethics and responsibility really aren't words that are in your vocabulary, are they? Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

Actually, you know what. lets just close this thread. If apple dont replace it, then oh well. ill wait untill apple warrenty expires, then kick in the Best Buy warrenty. And if im victorius, Yay!, that extended warrenty was worth it. IF not, then oh well, ill find another problem with the thing. But good day to you people, and thank god for extended warrenty!:rolleyes:

I'm wondering, how profitable does a company have to be before it is OK for you to steal from them? Would you steal from a family owned business? Or does have to have multiple locations? Retail outlets, maybe? Or perhaps they have to be over the million dollar mark?

OK, makes total sense. Then it is OK. :rolleyes:

It doesn't matter if it's a small family owned business, or a huge company like Apple. What you're doing is basically stealing, and unless you have no morals or ethics, you should know stealing is wrong and unlawful, and that you shouldn't even attempt it, even if you can get away with it.

I don't assoicate with people like you, because if they're dishonest to a company, how do I know they won't be dishonest to me?

SUCH CONSUMER PROTECTION LAWS AND REGULATIONS. THIS WARRANTY DOES NOT EXCLUDE, LIMIT OR SUSPEND ANY RIGHTS OF CONSUMERS
ARISING OUT OF NON-CONFORMITY WITH A SALES CONTRACT. SOME COUNTRIES, STATES AND PROVINCES DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR
LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITION MAY
LAST, SO THE LIMITATIONS OR EXCLUSIONS DESCRIBED BELOW MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. THIS WARRANTY GIVES YOU SPECIFIC LEGAL RIGHTS, AND
YOU MAY ALSO HAVE OTHER RIGHTS THAT VARY BY COUNTRY, STATE OR PROVINCE. THIS LIMITED WARRANTY IS GOVERNED BY AND CONSTRUED
UNDER THE LAWS OF THE COUNTRY IN WHICH THE PRODUCT PURCHASE TOOK PLACE. APPLE, THE WARRANTOR UNDER THIS LIMITED WARRANTY,

Apple’s warranty obligations for this hardware product are limited to the terms set forth below:
Apple, as defined below, warrants this hardware product against defects in materials and workmanship under normal use for a period of ONE (1) YEAR
from the date of retail purchase by the original end-user purchaser (“Warranty Period”). If a hardware defect arises and a valid claim is received by
Apple within the Warranty Period, at its option and to the extent permitted by law, Apple will either (1) repair the product at no charge, using new or
refurbished replacement parts, (2) exchange the product with a product that is new or which has been manufactured from new or serviceable used
parts and is at least functionally equivalent to the original product, or (3) refund the purchase price of the product. Apple may request that you replace
defective parts with new or refurbished user-installable parts that Apple provides in fulfillment of its warranty obligation. A replacement product or
part, including a user-installable part that has been installed in accordance with instructions provided by Apple, assumes the remaining warranty of
the original product or ninety (90) days from the date of replacement or repair, whichever provides longer coverage for you. When a product or part
is exchanged, any replacement item becomes your property and the replaced item becomes Apple’s property. Parts provided by Apple in fulfillment
of its warranty obligation must be used in products for which warranty service is claimed. When a refund is given, the product for which the refund is
provided must be returned to Apple and becomes Apple’s property.
If a defect arises and a valid claim is received by Apple after the first one hundred and eighty (180) days of the Warranty Period, a shipping and handling
charge may apply to any repair or exchange of the product undertaken by Apple.
