    I bought my iPod touch about 10 days ago, anybody have any idea whether I will have to pay for 2.0? Did people in the same situation have to pay for the last update?

    So, it's not like with Leopard, where people got it free within 30 days (was it 30 days)? If so, that's just ridiculous. :(

    i wonder if there is a 14 day return policy as with a computer

    you could try that or you could call apple and see what they say

    however, 10 bucks isnt the worst thing in the world if it came down to it

    Oh yeah, but still, I'd rather not have to pay, naturally. :) I'll probably give them a ring if I have to.

    understandable. hopefully they will give you like a promo code for the 2.0 software that way you wouldnt have to deal with restocking fee.

    probably wont happen but who knows right

    apple likes taking money, of course you have to pay.

    okay, but you don't actually know that. and historically, it is quite possible that it won't be the case.

    What's ridiculous is buying an iPod days before a very highly documented software update. You deserve to get stung for $10.

    Impressive.... Steve must have taken his happy pill the day he made that decision.... Great News (if not mildly surprising) Tho, thinking about it ... I think I remember occasions where a 14 day grace period was enacted... Still cool news for some...

    I guess they only thing we have to look forward to now are all those people who purchased **THEIR** iPod 15 16 17 ... days ago... :lol:

    NOTE: I think my rep might of made a mistake and given me a code a bit early :eek: because i made a thread about this & one unforunate guy called and they told him to bugger off :confused: maybe she wasn't supposed to tell me that until tommorw?>
