    Ok, so my home button on my 32gig 3rd gen isnt working as well as it should. Every once in a while, it will not respond when i push it, or it will double click when i only wanted one click. Ive already restored and it didnt help. Additionally, the problem seems to be getting worse.

    here are my questions
    1). I bought it from best buy, should i take it to an apple store to get it fixed/replaced?
    2). Will i get a new ipod, or will it be fixed?
    3). If i get it replaced, will it be a refurb or brand new? (My ipod is in perfect condition with no scratches and i dont want some refurb that is all scratched up)
    4). Is there any chance that replacement will come with 3.1.2 on it? Also if it comes with 3.1.3, will I be able to jailbreak it with the new jbs that should be coming out soon?

    Thanks in advance

    and if you take it to apple you will get an iPod that looks absolutely brand new. If it is or not I'm not positive, but I wouldn't be ale to tell the difference.

    Odds are it has 3.1.3 so no jailbreak, but you could get lucky

    thats from my personal experience

    Thanks alot for the answers and thanks for the link. I think I will wait to see if it gets worse and if a jailbreak comes out or not.

    Ok, another question. Do I have to take it to an official apple store, or can I just take it to best buy? The closest apple store is like an hour away.
