    My iPod touch has been giving me alot of trouble lately (turning itself off, many errors), and I want to trade it in under warranty for a new one very soon. However, I know that Apple will be releasing a new iPod touch around September 7-9. I purchased mine on September 23, 2009. If I brought it into Best Buy on the 22nd or 23rd of September this year, do you think that I could possibly get a 4th Gen back? Do you think they will have already gotten rid of the 3rd Gens already? I must know what you guys think before I try it.

    I know an Apple Store wouldn't, but not 100% sure about Best Buy. My guess is that they'll just give you a 3rd gen, or worse, order one in because they don't have any in the back.

    Yeah knowing crApple they would probably go out of their way to give me a 3G. But, if they are completely out of stock of 3G, they COULD possibly give me a 4G. I hope.

    Best Buy will give you a 3rd gen not a 4th gen if you trade it in.

    This is why I am going to wait until the new release to use my warranty. If i can get a 4G, YEAH! If not, ah well.

    Um, let me get this straight; you're expecting a company to just GIVE you a new product because you broke your old one?

    Alright, lemme just call Toyota and tell them my 6 year old Camry got a flat tire and that I want a new 2011 model.

    Realize what you're saying, man.
