    Wink can i do this at best buy?!?!
    i bought my first ipod touch at best buy and got the insurance and every thing then i thought i lost it so i bought a new one and didnt get the insurance and threw away the box/receipt (but the first one i didn't) bad thing is i found my ipod (#1) and i haven't even totally unwrapped all of the 2nd one. so i was wondering if i could just put #2s in #1s box and take it back to best buy and get something worth the 400$ i payed? lol if its kinda hard to understand ill try to elaborate if needed.

    You lost it, yeah. wink wink.

    You'll be lucky if they dont check the serial # right on the back of the ipod.

    As long as it is the same size as the box you should be fine (ie you are returning a 16GB touch in a 16GB touch box). Usually they don't check the back with the box at best buy. If they do, just take it to another location.

    Just explain a problem that you are having with the first one that they can not test - ie - intermitten sync loss or intermitten touch problems- should be able to get store credit or gift card......

    I don't think the touch is a product replacement plan, only the nanos are under this. They would send the touch to Apple to fix it and send you a new one (which isn't what he needs in this situation)

    exactly, i was hoping that maby i could take it back, some how, give it a trade in for the 32 gb new ipod. considering the 32 is the price of the 16 (correct me if im wrong lol) gb older one. need some clarifications as of now though lol

    I think your only option is to just return the one you JUST bought and rebuy a 32gb one if you are still within the return policy.

    So did they refund you the money you paid back on the iPod that you took to them and then bought back?
