    I really don't think they'll let you do that... or have any stock left with which they could do that.

    Probably not. If it's within 14 days of buying it you should be able to take it back, but if it's any longer then you're probably out of luck.

    I know you asked for no opinions, but that is a very dumb trade. Just wait until the Jailbreaking community finds a way to do it.

    Why not just find a 1G owner and trade with them? I'm sure there are many many 1G owners who would gladly trade with you.

    Seriously - just trade with someone. Go onto craigslist if you are in the US and find any number of people selling their 'near mint' first version. I think you'll not have trouble...

    I don't believe that you will officially be able to swap your Touch in the Apple store. However, it may be worth a try as I'm sure there would be at least one Apple employee in the store that has a 1G Touch that would like to upgrade and may be willing to swap with you. Alternatively, I would just sell the 2G via Craigslist or Ebay, and purchase a refurbished 1G online from the Apple Store. I'm someone that would swap my 1G for a 2G in a heartbeat, however doing so with an unknown person online poses too much risk (no offense) for me.

    They've jailbroken the 2g, and are currently working on simplifying the process so it can be released to the public.

    It's easy to unjailbreak a device. A full restore from DFU mode will do the trick. But where would you trade the device? And why would anyone care if a 50 cent pair of headphones is broken?

    Trading with another person, I hope. Apple will laugh you out of the store if you ask them if you can 'trade in' your iPod.
