    I just got a (3G/2G) 8GB iPod Touch, ~Brand New~

    I was wondering if I could go to an Apple Store and ask them to trade my iPod Touch (unopened) for an iPod Touch 4? I'll obviously pay the difference but is that possible? How much would it cost?

    If you just return(assuming your in the return policy) it you'll get 229.99 for it and you can buy the 4G for 229.99. Otherwise you are out of luck unless you can get an extremely nice rep.

    If you return it, you'll get back $199 USD (For US store) - $30 USD (restocking fee) = $169 returned. Then you could purchase the new iPod Touch 4G 8GB for $229 USD.

    They still have to restock it. It's a normal charge if you return anything. If you ask nicely and tell them you're upgrading, they might wave it if their nice.

    i was talking with a rep and he said

    A 10% restocking fee will be assessed for opened items. Shipping fees are not refundable.

    they dont charge the restocking fee because they literally have to restock it. a restocking fee is usually for opened box items because they get discounted 10% when reselling and the store does not want to lose money from returns
