    I am going to get a refurbished ipod touch 1st gen for my birthday and I was wondering if when I recieve it do I have to pay $10 to upgrade or is it already on 2.2? I also saw on Wikipedia that "Later models added Mail, Maps, Stocks, Notes, and Weather, which could also be added to the earlier models with the purchase of a US$20 software upgrade" is this for the 2nd gen or for both generations? and is it really $20? Thanks guys

    It will most likely come with 2.0 or newer, in which case you won't have to pay a thing.

    Cool I was just wondering because I saw that they wiped the ipod after recieving it so I didn't know if it reset to the old software or newer. Thanks you guys!

    they restore it... meaning that it is "wiped out" but its updated.

    Update: I called apple (their lines are open until 10 pm Pacific time) and they said that the update was free, any answers on the $20 update?

    The $20 update is old. It was the 1.1.1 update so that it had the same features as the iphone. You don't need to worry about it. Also, from what I received from them, the refurbished ipod touch 1g came with 1.1.4 firmware. you have to pay $10 for the upgrade or search around on the internet.

    Yeah most likely they come with the newest firmware already installed.

    Update: I ordered the ipod and the description said: RFB IPOD TOUCH 8G W/JAN SOFT UPG. So that just confirms it comes with newest software.
