    As the title states, Would it be stupid for me to trade an 8G iPod Touch (Late model 2G) for a 16G 1st gen iPod touch. My 3G is brand new, but is the 1st gen pwnd for life? I just want your opinions before I make a dumb choice.

    I think it's a stupid choice because you'll always be on 3.1.3 since Apple isn't supporting iPod Touch 1G models anymore. So if you really want a jailbreak and need more space, go for it. But you won't be able to use apps that require OS 4.0+.

    You know, This is exactly why I posted this and I am glad I did. Thank you because I forgot all about the upcoming 4.0 not supporting older devices. I think I will hold on to it for now. Thank you ChrisL!

    Also a very good point, thank you. How long is the warranty on a new device, 1 year? Thanks for your feed back

    I didn't know you could trade with the Apple Store. What kind of price discount do they give you? This is for sure an option.

    They give you the new one for free, but you have to pay the price difference between the new one and the one you are trading in.
