    I bought an ipod touch in the USA at Best Buy as a gift for a friend in Germany. Now I am wondering if anything goes wrong how can the warranty be applied to Germany, does the unit have to be shipped back to the US?
    anybody can help?
    thanks

    Not positive about the iPod but I have issues with other devices while at my home in Germany and I had to send them to someone in the US to send to Apple.

    I bought an iPod in the US, however if I check the serial number on the UK site it validates it under UK warranty?? Possibly you can just take it to an Apple Store anywhere??

    I bought an iPod Touch in the UK from Ebay, however it was originally sold in the US. When it had a problem, I took it to my local Apple Store and they had no problems with its disposition, they replaced without problems.

    My guess is if it was sold in the US, you will have to send it back to the US to get it fixed. Things may be different, depending on your local Apple Store as Steve Pearce said, some will fix/replace without a second thought.
