Nano recall

So I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.






On the front is red tail light spray and on the back is just black paint with a primer and sanded down all nice to a brushed aluminum under that.

Just submitted for a recall, and now I wait for a box. What do you guys think will happen when they open it and see this? It's still a danger with the battery, just looks a little defaced :P.

They won't care. The outer casing is of no use to them anyway even if they do refurb it. As long as it works that is - they'll have to verify the serial number somehow and you painted over it :P

I scratched through the paint to get to the serial number, but then I remembered that I sanded the back down. Full of win. But they can get to the serial number through itunes like I had to. x]

Honestly I don't really care about it, I already have a 6th gen nano. After this I'm assuming I'll have two :P.

You'll be lucky to get a replacement, from experience they don't generally look at the serial number on iTunes, but take it from the back of the iPod. Let us know how you get on!

Yeah if it was up to me I wouldn't give a replacement either. But then if my battery explodes or something they'll be in more trouble because it's still made by Apple. It'll be interesting to see what happens.

Just got it today, fast shipping since they shipped from Reno to Sacramento . Would post pictures but my gf stole it from me since I already have a 6th gen :P. My roommates bitter though since I originally bought that nano from him back in high school for $20 .

They either a) Didn't bother re-checking or b) used iTunes.
