    Man I just thought of something that makes me so excited. My current 1st Gen touch has a problem, it blows headphones faster than you can say 'SteveWhatsItsNameJobs?' Its been 3 sets since Jan '08. I don't even listen to music that much on my touch (hey,that rhymes!) and when I do, I have a volume limit on about 85% and my actual volume doesn't exceed 85% either. Now the latest 'phones to be ruined are my dads' Sony Walkman earphones which are of the highest quality and the right side's volume has been dramatically decreased. So in a few weeks (just to make sure theyre out of 1st Gens,) I'll take it to the Apple Store near me and tell them...then they'll say 'Sorry Sir, but we only have the new, 2nd Gen iPod Touches, is that ok?' Man, would I love to hear that?

    Plausible?

    They won't be out of first gen's for a LONG time. They have refurbished one's. And alot of them, I'm sure.

    i'd say not, because theyll take your iPod touch and tell you to come back in a week or some sort of timetable and by then I'd estimate they'd just ship to you a refurb 1G.

    My brother had the same experience because his stopped working, but that was 2 weeks ago.

    I don't think they'd give you a new 2G, i know that the Genius Bar or whatever it's called had some old iPods stored around that area for problems.


    Certainly try though.


    ++ I don't think they'd run out for at least 6-7 months or even more...

    They will simply give you a replacement 1st gen from a drawer

    Lol I could just casually ask them how long they stock them for and how long they stock refubs. And also, I have engraving on mine so I could demand a new one because of the engraving.

    Look at the thread I just posted. I JUST tested that from an Apple store. I am still in the Apple store writing from a Macbook. LITERALLY IN THE APPLE STORE.
