    Ok folks, I'm sick and tired of this.

    2 things that are extreme bugs keep happening with my Touch...

    1. Songs and Videos GONE...instantly

    2. NO APPS WORK (load for 2 seconds then goes right back to home screen)

    Seems to screw up any time I try to update apps from the Touch itself.

    So, yea, I do a full restore and it is fixed but having had this Touch for less than 1 month and having it fully crash 4 times like this is downright pathetic. Should I take it back?!

    I mean, I think I am going to take it back and if the new one crashes...even once, I am going to jailbreak it.

    Apple, you had your chance to convert me, I love your product WHEN IT WORKS, but when I am using it completely legally, have spent nearly $100 in the app store and I have to restore the Touch to default once a week?!?! Funny how all the MAC fanboys use the phrase "it just works" when at least when a MS product screws up it usually explains why.

    Sorry, I'm just angry. I've tried all the remedies...rebooting, resetting options, deleting and reinstalling apps, etc...NOTHING works. I consider $400 a bit of an investment when I could have bought a laptop instead.

    It came with 1.1.4 I think and I bought the 2.0...then got the 2.0.1

    Can I put old firmware on it? I mean, I never jail broke it.

    Also, I got this at Wal Mart, shouldn't I be able to just take it back there or does it have to go through Apple?

    thanks

    you should go through apple store, and yes you can download the 1.1.4 firmware and restore to it. apple doesnt care if your on 2.0 or 1.1.4, as long as not jailbroken

    Take it back to Wal Mart where they will give you a brand new device.
    If you bring it back to Apple to exchange, they'll give you a refurbished one. At least that's what happened when I tried to exchange my 1 week old Touch at the Apple Store.

    I've been using my refurbished iPoT here and it's worked longer (so far), than my original one .. Nothing wrong with it, the refurbished ones are still brain new, with zero scratches on their back, etc.
