    Welcome to the Forums. I'm Mr. Cheeto and I luv u.

    Apple will swap iPods on a whim. I told them my first iPod touch was not putting video out using a composite cable adapter and they just swapped it, no more questions asked. It still didn't work but I wasn't about to fuss about it because they eat the cost of such replacements.

    Just call and explain exactly what happened. Be sure to include the fact that it said your Headphones were in even though they were not.

    Even if there was a heaven, I'm not on my way there any time soon. Besides, Dio would be jamming in hell, if anything.

    Take me, Ronnie James!


    Not cool, dude. Support t3h Appuhl!

    Wont work, out of warranty....

    I was pretty lucky with a 1st gen.. I bought it off my sister not long after she got it when they first came out... scratched to hell on the back... a month after the audio stopped working and since it was within warranty (I bought it for £70 off her.. so at the time that was a BARGAIN) apple replaced it with a brand new one :D

    So basically I got a brand new ipod touch 1st gen (not long after they were released) for £70

    I did scroll up. I saw what he said. But i didn't want to double post like rioku here.

    How long is the warranty? 2 years? Do refurbs come with a warranty or do they keep the warranty from original purchase?

    iPod waranties are one-year.

    Refurbs come with all the support and warranties as a new iPod.

    I think he's saying the ones apple automatically gives you from purchase.
    And how do I figure out if my iPod is still in warranty?

    Call Apple. One of the initial questions will be what your serial number is. They will tell you if it is still in warranty.

    Why would you try to cheat a company like that, if it's just scratches?

    Dat ain't right, dat just ain't right.
