    Will I receive the rebate since I paid $229 for it when they are selling for $199 now. If I don't I will call Apple and ask them.

    My second question is should I keep this iPod touch or should I sell it? If it were 2G I would have sold it, but since it's the 3G, I'm not so sure. I was thinking I could sell this and use the money to buy the new nano. What would you do?

    BTW: I ordered my first ever MacBook Pro on Sept 8, the last day for the promo.

    Good idea

    They're the same thing...they didn't change the 8GB

    You will probably get the $229, because you got it as a deal for that geneation of iPod touch. And the 8gb 2G and 8gb 3G are the same. It just got a price drop. Only the high end models got the upgrade.
    And I keep it. But if you are tight on money, sell it.

    Hmm. I wonder what would have happened if I bought the 16GB touch. Would it have been upgraded to the 32GB? :p Guess we may never know...

    ...if the 8GB 2g and 3g are the same, how does the OP know he got a 3g iPod touch:confused::D:confused:

    Good point. I'm pretty sure this is the 3G because it has the Voice Memos icon on the packaging sticker, which the 2G didn't have (I had a 2G) and on the back of the iPod touch casing, it says that it requires iTunes 9.

    Wasn't charged for the new iPod

    I checked the Apple Order Status Details and it shows that I wasn't charged for the iPod! Now I don't have to worry about the rebate. I think it's just great that it shows the iPod's price as $0.00. Haha :D

    They still have many in stock probably. Because the refurb store has them for sale. It would be very rare to get a 3G.

    Same thing happened to me. I ordered on the last day of the promo (Sept. 8th), and did not get charged for the iPod. I wonder what will happen if I try sending the rebate in :D

    I own a blackberry, but I also like the iPhone (shock horror!:D), but couldnt live without the features of my berry...so I figured the next best thing to the iPhone for me would be the touch..

    So I got the 8gb tough on BTS promo, but quite honestly, I didnt feel the memory was big enough for me and I probably wouldnt have much use for the apps etc plus I didnt want to spend the extra on a 16gb since the rebate amount was the same as the 8gb:confused:.

    another thing was, something was always drawing me to the 4G Nano's, I liked the fact they are so incredibly small but had a host of features.

    So what did I do? I returned it thats what!:D and exchanged for the tiny and stylish 4G 16GB Nano.

    ...then ofcourse, the feature packed 5G Nano got released a few weeks after... So what did I do? got sucked in by all the good reviews written about it on here and other sites, thats what:rolleyes::). So I sold my 4G and bought the newer 5G...and I love it.
