    If you bought it within the past week, you might be able to shame them into it. Otherwise, unlikely.

    No, unless you purchased it in the last 2 weeks and it's sealed. My suggestion? Try selling your current one for as much as possible on eBay, and use that money towards a new one. I'm afraid you won't be upgrading for free.

    Then yes as long as it wasn't a refund one. If you already sent in the rebate form it is yours.

    The new on isn't that special anyways. Not worth the hassle. Crappy speaker, nike+ WOW, and tiny volume controls. No big deal.

    no it was just a straight purchase. My friend is on holiday in the US, he bought it in San Fran.

    well 2 nights ago, my ipod touch got extremely hot and the apple logo was brown in stead of silver and the background was white instead of black and this really terrified me. i am soo scared to plug it in now. honestly. and this is the third time this has happened after the 2.0 update.

    What about...

    Is there no way to give it back to apple, add a few more bucks and get the new one?

    If by a few more bucks you mean the retail price, then yes.

    I have been holding onto a 1st gen ipod touch with battery problems for a while in hopes that when I send it in for repair, I'll get a 2nd gen. This this won't happen? What will I get in return? It is under warranty.

    :confused: Did the first generation iPod Touch lose all value at 10:00 am PDT?

    Nope. The 2nd gen isn't really anything great. Nike+=Big deal Crappy speaker=Yawn Volume control=Way too tiny

    Not impressed.


    Lose some value=yep.

    All value=stupid comment

    My store doesn't have the new Touch (Richmond VA), I tried to return mine (old version) this evening but they said no you can't because it was 15 days after purchase and also they don't even have any new ones till this weekend, they are still displaying the OLD Touch in the store with no signage or anything to reflect that there is even a new one in existence. So an unsuspecting person can go buy them at the $299 price for 8. That's "not nice" according to my daughter..I was thinking something a bit more than just that..
