    Hi, I have a ipod toch and I'm planning on selling it and buying another one with more memory. Will I have to pay for the 2.0 firmware again?

    thanks

    No

    No. The software update is yours to keep. Just make sure you fully wipe your iPod before selling it, so the new owner does not have 2.0 as this would be illegal and cause problems for him and you when he connects it to the computer. However, be advised that the new iPod's come out tomorrow and they will include 2.0 at no charge.

    This is a question I would suggest that you ask Apple about, since I doubt that anyone has encountered it.

    That being said, I would suspect that you would have to buy it again, since the update it tied to the SN of the iPod touch, not your iTunes account.

    No, it's tied to your iTunes account. I have a friend who was two iPod Touches and he purchased iPod 2.0 ONCE and uses them both just fine. BUT, as I said before, new iPod's are coming out tomorrow that will include 2.0, so it does not really matter anyway.

    I had the same question for the same reason you asked so I called an Apple store rep and the answer give was you will have to re-purchase the upgrade
