Time-bomb Nano – Day 25


I spoke with Apple today regarding the iPod Nano replacement (it’s not a recall, it’s a replacement.) I sent my Nano to Apple about three weeks ago in a shipping box they provided. The friendly Apple rep told me they were running about a six week turn around on nano replacements. Having not anticipated so many returns, they had run out of shipping boxes. He apologized profusely for the delay.

Funny that Apple easily has a stockpile of seven-year-old, first-generation iPod Nanos to give out, but the difficult part is cardboard boxes. Are they not just recycling the boxes they sent out? I should know in another three weeks.

    I sent my 1st Gen Nano in very promptly, and I just got notice back today that they are shipping my replacement back to me. The email notice I got gave me the serial number of my old and replacement Nanos. When I plugged the serial number of the replacement into the Apple support site, it came back as being a 6th Gen Nano.

      I sent mine in early as well, but have yet to receive any notice of its arrival. I will be disapponted to receive a 6th gen, but others may not be.

Got something to say? Go for it!
