    hey guys, so i just plugged my iPod touch into my laptop and i saw that update thing pop up. i clicked download only just to see what would happen and the 3.0 firmware started downloading after i clicked ok to a few things. i know i didnt buy it cuz i only had 23 cents in my apple account...... did i just get the firmware for free?? at the moment it is still downloading

    ok..... the 3.0 firmware just got down downloading.... it didnt say ANYTHING about buying anything or not having enough money in my account.... where does iTunes save its firmwares??

    Have you turned off the notification that tells you your paid downloads?
