Can you tell the difference between the 2nd gen and the 3rd gen while in package?

    Hi

    I know this may sound weird - but I am hoping to be able to tell the difference between a 2nd gen iTouch and a 3rd gen iTouch while they are still in the package.

    On Friday, i am expecting to receive my iTouch (a gift, not from the Apple Store) and I want to know if it is a 3rd gen iTouch.

    If it is not - I would like to leave it in the package and try and sell it "as new" for what I can and turn around and get a 3rd gen iTouch. If I open the package and find out it is a 2nd gen - I can't sell it as new.

    Thanks in advance!

    Look on the back of the box and see what it includes.

    Earphones with remote and mic? 3G Touch. Just earphones - 2G Touch.

    If it's 64GB it's obviously 3G Touch as well.

    Model number (part number), located by the barcodes on the bottom of the plastic case.

    Should be above the top barcode.

    If it starts with MA, its first gen.
    If it starts with MB, its second gen.
    If it starts with MC, its third gen.
