Please help... I have the 4g 20gb ipod, bought in late August 04... I read about the problem with static at the start of songs following the ipod refresing the buffer, or something like that, and mine has had that... I'd like to send it back for a repair and started on the process at apple.com and found that it would cost me 31.00 dollars to send it back, something I didn't know about where they only pay shipping in the first 180 days following purchase... So, should I go ahead and send it in? Has anyone else had the static problem? Has anyone sent theirs in? Please let me know if you think I should send it in... I am worried about getting back an ipod with scratches... how has the quality of your returned ipod been? thank you, apple4life.
