I don't know if this is the right forum to post this thread, but for those who want to know how a iPod touch replacement product is like without wrecking your precious iPod, here you go. These pictures are actually a 'reenactment' of the unboxing because I forgot to take pictures in the initial 'fury of excitement' and curiosity of whether I was going to get a new or refurb iPod touch (for the record, I got a brand new week 5 model). My old iPod had a loose headphone jack and was thankfully still under warranty (obviously, since the touch wasn't even released for a year yet). Also, I subjected my iPod to the controversial brushed metal treatment; so, for the skeptics: 'brush metaling your iPod's stainless steel back does NOT void your warranty as it does not alter the device's function in any way'. There. I had to cross out my personal info even though I'm not sure what anyone could do with it except spam me: The retail iPod box by it's cheapened replacement product analogue It's even got a sheet of foam velour! The little sticker is the newly assigned serial number: All the contents: Apple literature: The whole process of sending the iPod in took exactly a week: 1) I requested a product replacement on Apple's website on March 12 2) March 14, a prepaid cardboard box with clear intructions arrived at my door 3) I dropped the package off at my local UPS store 4) March 18 The package was delivered to somewhere in Ontario, Canada 5) I got a email that said my iPod will arrive at my door in 2 days 6) To my surprise, the next morning (March 19), I heard a man's low voice calling my name from the front door which my parents had opened while I was still in bed -- my iPod had arrived!
