I just bought mine in wellcom SM North Edsa annex they are claiming that they are authorized. I was surprised to see that itouch 8gb is only selling at 9990 (11500 in power mac) due to their promo of back-toschool. so I bought it with their promise that it comes with a real apple warranty. when I got home I was shocked that it is the old itouch 4g w/o IOS5 . was I defrauded? is there any diff in price bet 4g w/o ios5 and w/ ios5?  and what if it got broken? can I still go to any powermac service center? thanks. I got paranoid


iPod touch, iOS 4.3.2

    I don't see Wellcom listed on that page, so unless they exist under another name, it would appear that they are not authorized, though I don't know if that page is completely up to date.

     

    I bought it with their promise that it comes with a real apple warranty.

     

    You can check the status of the warranty by entering the serial number here:

    If the date of expiration is not one year from the date you purchased the iPod (give or take a day or two), then the reseller was not authorized and/or sold you a used iPod.

    That sounds too good to be true, and when something seems too good to be true, it usually is.

     

    I was shocked that it is the old itouch 4g w/o IOS5 . was I defrauded?

     

    Either that or they had very old stock, which is certainly possible though unlikely for any authorized dealer.

     

    is there any diff in price bet 4g w/o ios5 and w/ ios5?

     

    Apple reduced the price on the iPod touch 8GB model back in October. And all new iPods come with iOS 5. An iPod touch with iOS 4 is old stock.
