    You have to take the plastic OFF the ipod BEFORE it will come out

    Trust me....

    Yes, then it will come out rather easily.

    Yes the "fake home screen" that is on your ipod, it has to come off for the ipod to come out of the plastic holder

    And for anyone else, YouTube has a ton of iPod Touch 2G unboxing videos showing how to take it out of the packaging.

    There's also instructions on the back of the plastic...But really, this is common sense. :rolleyes:

    Wouldn't go that far, I found it quite a pain to get the device out. The top sticker has the peel tab so that was easy, the bottom doesnt, then also the stickers on the side so a knife to cut those, pop it open, remove the fake home screen and then twist that plastic bed to finally get the device out.

    It might not be rocket science, but it certainly isn't the easiest way to do it. The original dark boxes are more desirable.

    Thanks, sgtboy, for posting your answer. I'm the owner of MANY Apple products, but the Touch was the first one I've never been able to even get out of its packaging! lol For a company that makes such intuitive products, this was one packaging design that wasn't.:eek:

    I hate this Packaging, I don't have my camera but I think it damaged it/I was careful. I can't find my hp Digital Camera but now my new 16GB touch has this HIGH CONTRAST that's makes it unusable.
