    Hey Ya'll,

    I received the 8gb 2nd Gen iPod touch for as a gift. I have used it a little bit, but I think I should exchange it for the new one that will come out on the 9th of September.

    It is opened, but I have the receipt, also on the 9th it will still be within the 14 day return policy.

    Has anyone ever upgraded to the newer model? How do I do this without getting screwed?

    Any advice?

    Thanks!!

    Just take it back like you would any product. After you get your money back go and buy the third gen. XD
    There's a chance you may have to pay a 10% restocking fee.

    Cool, so even if it was a gift, they will probably just put it on a gift card or something right?

    still within 30 days means you are good to go. just go in and exchange. Just make sure that nothing bad happens to it before you return it lol, but that shouldn't be a problem.

    isn't their is a 30 day money back?

    go to the store get your money

    save it!

    then buy the ipod touch 3G

    most likely it will cost the same at $230 or $199.;)

    Meanwhile, the person who spent the cash and gave the gift in the first place feels like a tit. nice move.

    if youve used it, you will have to pay a restock fee at the minimum

    They should be able to look up the serial number and see when it was bought.

    Even if there is a 10% restocking fee, it is for sure worth it. It would be less than $30 to get the 3rd gen and you would have a good bit of new features (maybe even a camera :D)
