    So i just recieved my (refurbed) ipod 6Gen. When i turned it on the first thing I saw was that the battery was half used. Firstly if your gonna give me a refurbed the apple inc should atleast put the ipod back to factory settings. I mean really?! Also that it was on Fitness+ when i turned it on so i have no idea whether the ipod was played with before being shipped off or if it was even fixed (refurbed) before being sent off.

     

    I am currently putting it back to factory settings because i like to start from scratch not from where someone else left off. That just ****** me off that something for me isn't even in the blank form even used items are put back to factory settings.

     

    Anyways I like to ipod since its small enough to fit in my pocket no prob and I got it for free since my old 1gen had a cracked screen and the internal memory is broken.....i stepped on it so yea.....i got a refurb for free even though my is bust and i still have another 1gen nano with my songs and its battery life is still good, though it is one of the groups where i can send it in and get a 6gen.

     

    SO....I have a 6gen and a old 1gen for the keeping. That is what i got. Hoped this helped anyone.

     

     

    Also for a quick note, did anyone have any probs with there battery life? Cause if they did I want ot know so I can send mine in and get a different one or get it fixed.

    i love how he threw his cousin under the bus to make his point

     

    I've seen people can rant for months on this website

     

    it's a little ironic, the forum that is used for helping other people that was created by apple has now become a complaint forum for them

    Good on you Kerris, you had a wrecked ipod and you got back a refurbished unit. Then there are people like me who had a prestine, like new 1G ipod and had it replaced with a refurbished (used) unit that someone returned because of problems. Some people think that oh well its a big company and they can get away with this, and probably will, nevertheless we should speak up!

    So, just so I am clear, you had a new, never used 1st Generation iPod Nano still in its sealed box that you sent to Apple and they returned a service replacement unit to you? (PS. Your service replacement unit may never have been used by anyone).

    How do you know that it is refurbished? They all come with a 90-day warranty regardless of whether they are new or refurbished.

    I don't know where you get your info but on the Apple site it says you get 90 days free technical service and 1 year limited warranty that, for $49. can be extended to 2 years. So again why when I enter my serial number does it say my warranty has expired??

  • 353. Re: 1st Gen Nano Recall Notification
    cicerogirl Level 1 Level 1 (145 points)

    I got my info directly from Apple because some people here were saying that theirs came with a full year warranty while, when I looked mine up online it said the warranty was expired.  The problem is that the warranty info online is incorrect and, if it is a refurbished unit, the info may or may NOT have been updated from the original owner's warranty period.

     

    Bottom line is that no matter what it says online, you have only a 90 day warranty (because they consider that your TRYE warranty, whihc was on your 1G unit, expired years ago).  If it says 1 year and you submit it wor warranty work in 6 months, you WILL be charged for it because their system knows you only have 90 days.  (Now why they -- a computer company -- have two systems with different data, I have no idea.)  Feel free to call Apple yourself; they will confirm the 90-day warranty on all 1G replacement units.

    to be honest: I don't care about any warranty .

    If this thing breaks I'll throw it away and use my phone to listen to my music.

    This 6G Ipod really p....s me completely off.

    - It doesn't work with winamp which the old one did ( I hate Itunes)

    - The audio cable to my car stereo makes noise ( I guess now I need a special overexpensive Apple certified cable)

    - It is impossible to use it blind while driving

    Is very likely the last Apple product I ever bought......at least it was free.

  • 355. Re: 1st Gen Nano Recall Notification

    I am not at all happy about the 6G either, but at least it works fine in my car (with the same generic, Apple-supplied cable I had been using with both my 4G and 5G nanos) and that way I can still use it but don't have to screw around with it and it's teeny tiny controls.  If it had NOT worked in my car, I would have just given it away to someone since I do still have a 4G nano (very flaky since its warranty expired) and a 5G nano... and I bought a refurbished 1G off of eBay.

    with units that were part of the replacement program it basically leaves your warranty and phone support where your last ipod left off

     

    the only difference is they give you a 90 day warranty

    "it basically leaves your warranty and phone support where your last ipod left off"

     

    Right... which, on a 6 year old nano, has long expired... thus you have only the 90-day warranty. Unless, of course, someone was still spending money on Apple Care for their 1G... which I find hard to imagine.

    I just got my second replacement unit today.  It took just 3 weeks from the time they received my first 1G until the day I got the replacement (but it took longer than 3 weeks to get the box to ship it back in -- submitted request in November but did not receieve the box until well into December).  This time,  I got the padded envelope 2 days after I requested it, and it only took Apple from the 8th (when they received my old unit back... there was a 2 day shipping delay because of a partially unreadable shipping label) to the 17th to ship it out.  They attempted to deliver it yesterday when I was at work, but I received it today.

     

    I feel bad for people who have had really long delays even once they sent their old unit back, but I have no complaints about THAT part of the replacement program.
