    First of all, I'm using a second gen but that's not important. Since 3.0 is going to be out in the summer and touch users need to pay to upgrade. All I want to know is when first gen users upgraded to 2.0 did you all pay the ten bucks towards apple. And just curious, is there a way around paying? Just give me a yes/ no answer.

    you'll more than likely get the same response here as you did in ipodtouchfans forum.

    you were also answered in there - you pay it.

    apparently there isn't. You just have to pay it.

    There was a dodgy site or two which had the 2.0 OS as a free download.

    Its only about £6 so why all the fuss about paying the money?

    I gladly paid my $10 for 2.0, and I'll be overjoyed to pay it again for 3.0.

    1st gen owners had to pay. Twice. In January 2008 Apple released the 'January Software Upgrade' which added Mail, Maps, Notes, Weather and Stocks, as well as the ability to move icons on the home screen and lyrics - this cost $20. Then a few months later they made us pay $10 for 2.0...
    The catch was, if you were a person that didn't buy the January upgrade, you got the extra apps as part of 2.0 anyway, so ultimately anyone that bought the upgrade and then 2.0 lost $20.

    the actual ipod is what 200-300? 10 is doable.

    There are ways around paying, but as others have said, it's only $10 and that really justifies the new features, at least to me. Give Apple their due - they put a lot of work into these releases.
