    I got this directly from apple and It came with 2.2.1 5h11a

    did I get ripped off? What featres am I missing from 3.0? Should I call them and demand a free update? Or is the update free?

    No it won't come with 3.0.

    My friend bought a 1st gen refurb last month and it came with 1.1.5.

    umm... no. lmfao although demanding a free update from apple would be a funny sight to see.

    ipod touches dont come with the newest firmware. how is apple going to make money then?
    you need to buy it for 9.99 (america) in itunes when you sync ur ipod.

    They make money by overcharging on every one of their items.

    If this is how they practice business I can see why people just go and rip off 3.0 illegally.

    so true.
    i know they do overcharge, but i was just pointing out how apple is very stupid and like to charge 300 dollars for an ipod touch with only 16gb. and then make me pay another 10 for a firmware update.

    sorry if i sounded rude.

    Naw you are fine. I just find it bloody rediculous. Oh well it was free. I would never willing give apple my money lol.

    what does 3.0 add anyways? The only thing I thought it addede that i cared about was horizontal keyboard... but my touch does this already...

    I have the same problem...received a new iPod Touch as a gift and am puzzled why they didn't ship it with the latest software. Just got off the phone with Apple tech support and got the same runaround about having to charge for the upgrade so they could keep prices down on their products.

    I explained to him that my music collection is very large and that I switched over to ITunes with a fair amount of reservation... that I may return the iPod. Didn't move him. Pisses me off.

    Shipping new hardware with an outdated firmware full of well known security flaws and then asking you to pay an additional 10 bucks to get these vulnerabilities fixed should be against the law. Maybe it is...

    what all does 3.0 add? My device already has a horizontal keyboard which was one of the best features shown in 3.0....

    better battery life, or so it seems

    silly things like that
