    I think your best bet would be selling it on something like eBay or craigslist. Good luck!

    You can turn it in to Apple for recycling. They will give you a 10% discount on a new one.

    Hey there,

    Believe me, this new 4th generation iPod Touch is really worth the upgrade. Your best shot is to sell it online or to a friend/family member and buy the new one.

    and when u say new one do u mean another ipod touch 2g or could i get the new 4g

    They mean use the profit from selling it to contribute to buying a G4.

    Nobody AT ALL, is going to trade you a 4G for a 2G. Apple taking it back? That's...simply not going to happen. Their a business. They need to make money. Why would they take back outdated products and give you one that cost more to produce?

    You'll either have to try ModMyI's marketplace and tack on a $100 dollars or so. Or the eBay way. Personally, my BEST offer for a 4G is my 3Gtouch, two 20 GB iPod Classics, and $50 and I can't even get some takers.

    I meant a new iPod Touch (4th generation). Use the money you can profit from your iPod sale to buy the new one. Obviously you'll have to spend some money from your own pocket, as no one will give you the same amount of money the new iPod Touch costs.

    romainggnome, why do you keep suggesting folks recycle honestly no one in their right mind would do that. It is better to suggest selling it to a 3rd party and use those funds to buy the newer model.
  • roaminggnome Level 10 (94,440 points)
    I have never recommended this option, only informed folks of the option.

    I told the OP hat there was no trade in, there was only recycle. The the OP asked follow up questions and I answered them.

    Why are you bothered that I am giving this information to folks who ask?

    There is no trading program available anywhere on apple desire or store. There is a recycling program that by trading your old iPod touch, apple retail store can take 10% off of a new iPod touch purchase. If you don't like that kind of program you can take a few suggestion that I'm considering of doing; selling my iPod on eBay, craiglist or amazon.

    Good luck on that.....

    I also have a 2nd gen iPod touch and am going to buy a 4th gen. I will probably sell mine to for just under $70. It's a lot more than what Apple will give and then you don't have to deal with eBay. They will even send you the check in the mail (or through PayPal or something). Good luck!

    Actually, I'm going to sell mine to either Dell or . Nextworth has several really bad reviews, and the last thing I want to do is lose my iPod to them.
  • Tommy_04 Level 1 (25 points)
    I read on a article news about that website that recycles old gadgets in return for cash. I seen news report mentioning people selling IPhones and IPods, getting nice price offers from that website. Always hearing nice reviews about those sites with their trade-in programs. What I don't seem so convinced about is the sending of the device to their warehouses, so they could evaluate it within their own means of what they consider to be valuable. Simply because from what they say on their website(For example, consumers will receive up to $132 credit on a 32GB 3rd generation Touch), it might be different from what cash they might give you for your old iPod you might had sent them.

    Mathlover1, letting you know that also Target made its trade-in announcement as part of a larger project to sell more cellular products through an in-store partnership with RadioShack. Try to check them out to see if they do trade-ins at their retail stores. Those stores will examine the equipment's condition and give gift cards based on that and the age of the item. I also heard of a website called: EcoSquid lets you search multiple Websites to compare offers for old handsets. The best recommendation: do your homework. If you want to be sure you get the best value for your items, take a little time and check what each retailer is offering.

    Gazelle and Nextworth both have similar reviews. If you feel uncomfortable about sending in your electronics device, just bring it to a participating Target store and they will give you a gift card on the spot! If you don't like the price they will give you, you don't have to do it.
