    I bought my iPod a couple years ago, and needed to replace it just before the warranty was up, last year. So I sent it in and they sent me another one I don't know if it was refurbished or just new. Well anyways this one just crapped out on me also. Does this one still have the one year warranty on it?

    I think (and I could be very wrong) that the warranty on a replacement is 90 days or the length of the original warranty, whichever is longer.

    I would think so- but you need to just contact Apple anyway about your problems and they can tell you. What do you do to these iPods?!?!

    Hah, I dunno... Well my first one I think it was because I woul always bring it to work and I kept hittin' it, not hard, but it would get knocked a few times while in my pocket. But this one I haven't done anything too, I've used it less and only at school, so I don't know.

    So it sounds like you should bang it around as it sounds like the first one lasted more than a year and this new one didn't.:D

    Maybe I should.... :eek: Sucks being sans iPod.

    Just found my reciept and it has Apple Limited Warranty typed under the iPod serial #, so I'm assuming I can get it repaired again... or replaced.

    Lucky you! When I get my new one I think i am going to be naughty and use something like alterpod and get a new one after a year? Does it always work if I keep a straight face and "have no idea what happened"?

    Thanks

    The warranty on a replacement iPod does in fact last until the expiration date of the original warranty or 90 days from the replacement date, whichever is later. Sorry. :(

    Forget that, it doesn't work like that. I just tried to send it in for repairs on the Apple Site and it showed the original iPod purchase date for the current serial#. Oh well, maybe I should get the Applecare on my next iPod :(


    Yea thanks, I figured. Hmm now what am I goin to do with this dead iPod?

    Well, you can sell it for parts or trade it in at an Apple store for 10% off a new one. http://www.apple.com/environment/recycling/
