    Ummm... There is no '2.5,' but I'm not getting into that argument.

    Still, when did you buy your iPod? And what is the Model number?

    But there is not a physical difference between the 2 (3?).

    If you bought it in August, then you will not have a 3G. The 3G (or '2.5G') was released on September 9, 2009.
