Ipod 1st gen replacement
« on: April 27, 2012, 09:56:47 AM »
Just found out that the 1st gen ipods are under a recall and replacement program, I happen to have one laying around so I submitted it for replacement.

They sent an envelope to send it back and said they will replace it with a 6th gen one, so if anyone else has that old iPod laying around might want to check it out and see if it qualifies.

The replacement program can be found on the apple site under support and the Exchange and Repair Extension Programs to the bottom left of the page.

Shawn,
So does that mean if it's just laying around broken that I could send it in? I got it repaired once...

As far as I know as long as the serial number puts it in the range they will trade it out, I will let you know. I just sent my old one back yesterday that would not power on anymore.

You mean the very first iPod that came out in 2001?
