    Disclaimer: I only want to know this so I can trade in a refurbished iTouch (received as a result of Apple warranty) at a store like Best Buy and get a gift card or another 4th Gen in return.

    How can you tell if an unopened iPod touch is refurbished or not? I want to konw so I can trade mine in once I get it replaced under warranty. If you can't tell, I would love to trade it in for a $200 gift card so I can get the 4th gen. Also, if I brought my iTouch into best buy, would they give me a refurb, or would they just grab one off the shelves?

    Your hoping $200 when they are sold for $200? A no. Most you'll get is $150.

    Thanks man that is what I meant. Like a full refund. But would they give me a full refund on a refurbished iTouch? and would they be able to tell? that's my question.

    What if I didn't buy it there? I bought mine from Amazon. Could I tell them I bought it there? Would they know?

    Why would you try to trick bestbuy? They won't give you a full refund on your iPod if you didn't even buy it from their store! That's just common sense dude
