Q: If there is a problem with my 1st-gen iPod touch, and I send it back to Apple under warranty, will they replace it with a 2nd-gen iPod touch? A: Depending on who you're speaking with and where you go, you might be lucky enough to land yourself a new, shiny 2nd-gen (2G) iPod touch. But, if you're like the rest of us, you'll be sent a slightly less shiny refurbished 1st-gen (1G) iPod touch. Until Apple runs out of 1G refurbished iPod touch stock, it only makes sense to continue sending out these devices as replacements. The point is, asking this question on iPodTouchFans is only going to get you a mixed answer, because we simply don't know. So, in the meantime, try calling your local Apple Store or visiting in-store, and see what they have to say. You might just find yourself speaking with a happy-go-lucky manager that happily hands you over a shiny 2G iPod touch, or you may encounter yourself talking with an Ebenezer Scrooge (if you know what I'm talking about).
