    I've read somewhere that if you already had 5+ replacements and still have a defective one, they're suppose to give you a brand new one (sealed) not a refurb? Is this true?

    Another one, I sent my ipod for replacement, and they said replacement will take around 3-4 weeks but my warranty will be expired next week. So if I received the replacement unit, there is no more warranty? or will it be extended? Thanks!

    The replacement unit includes 90 days of support. This means that if your warranty is about to expire, you basically get a 90 day warranty extension.

    What if before that 90 day extension, the unit acts up again? Do I get another extension?

    You forgot to post some all important information. Where do you live?

    I heard that if you had 5+ replacements, they take your iPod away and sell you a Microsoft Zune instead :D

    I believe so. It is 90 days from when you received your latest replacement (for example, if you got a replacement and after 10 days realised it has a fault and it is replaced, you do not get to keep the remaining 80 days PLUS the 90 days for the new unit - it is always an outright 90 days from the issuing of a replacement).

    Haha. Anyway, I live in the Philippines. How does warranty work here?

    I already got 7+ replacements.

    Not really. I get ******* units everytime after the other.

    The unit I just sent for replacement had broken wifi antenna.

    If I were Apple I would issue you a refund and cut you loose since you are one of those "1 in 30 type" of custumers.
