Just keep waiting. There has been a much higher demand than expected for returned and replaced 1G Nanos. It has said that Apple has ran out of return boxes, so it might take a few more days than expected to receive one. I qualified for a replacement and filled out the form about 10 days ago and still have not received mine either, but I do know its coming.

I'm in the same boat. Applied for mine on 11/13 and received the email. For step 1 mine says "Service Requested". Glad I'm not the only one waiting for a box/envelope.

After 45 min. of hold time Apple Care just confirmed that:
1. The return boxes are on backorder
2. The boxes would ship "soon"
3. The 10 day clock for the return starts when you sign for receipt of the return box

Rae, I think I received the email response later the same day. The fact that the repair status shows "service requested' indicates that your submission went through. Maybe you entered the wrong email address or your spam blocker trapped it??

Do you know, what product they will send us instead of the old Nano?

What makes you think your not getting a refurb 1st generation Nano?

What makes you think we're not getting something else? Do you really think they have enough of the original 1st generation for every unit sold during that time period? Not likely (if the backorder's any indication of the amount of requests).

I would prefer to get a 3rd generation Nano back, but knowing Apple they will find a way of supplying everyone with 1GB 1st generations, even if they have to make a few thousand.

submitted my replacement request on Nov 13th. Still no box. Really, Apple this is what you call customer support and forget about customer satisfaction. You have everyones' email. Why just send an update? How hard would that have been?

What is funny iis that I have a 3g touch but I feel that I need to get my nano fixed even though I dont ever use it. lol

I got an email in Danish from Apple that said, I would receive a replacement unit instead of my old Nano, because of the fault on the battery. It also said, that I had to send my old Nano and follow the instructions to get my Nano swapped for free. That's what makes me think, we are not getting the old one fixed.
In addition, Apple calls the campaign for an exchange campaign in the Danish email.
I don't know, if you interpret the word "replacement" differently, but in Denmark it definetely means a new iPod. And I would be surprised, if Apple had enough 1. generation Nanos left. I think, we will be getting a later edition.
