I just wanted to ask if anyone had had a similar situation. I am based in the UK and sent my iPod 1st Gen back to Apple, received and "Replacement Product Pending" since the 26th December. By my reckoning that is 6 weeks to the day. Whilst I do appreciate that there has been New Year etc in between, has any one else had this problem? They did say within 6 weeks... What is the longest that people have waited? has it been a lot more than that? Is it different in different countries? and what should I do if it carries on?! Thanks and I look forward to your input!
