This may be a lesson learned...

 

I sold my iPod Nano (6th generation) on eBay. I placed hi resolution images on my page and decribed it as having no scratchs or dings. It didn't. When the buyer recieved the product they said it has obvious scratches and dings, and proceeded to use vulgar language to describe my intentions.

 

Being a nice guy I let them ship at back, at no cost to them.

 

My concern now is that they will send me a different iPod. It will look the same in all ways, but have some scratches and dings, I assume. And worse it may be defective in some ways not easily detected until it has been used for a while (hence their need for a new one).

 

I know I registered the iPod when I first pruchased it, but I have read here that Apple no longer keep records of registered products. My hope was that I could find the seriel number and match it to the one I am getting in return.

 

Is there anything I can do to match iPods. Before I sent it to them, I naturally reset the OS, so they had a clean slate to work with.

 

I purchased this from a retialer, not Apple.

 

Any ideas?

 

thanks - Otto.
