To get your £25.00 worth of vouchers, do the following,
Buy a £100 giftcard and get a free £10 giftcard.
Buy a £50 giftcard and get a free £5 giftcard.
Use your £100 and £50 giftcards to buy the Ipod and get one more free £10 giftcard.

It would seem that most stores are doing this, but if you read the small print, they shouldn't.
If it doesn't work for you, don't kick up a fuss, 'cos you are in the wrong.

The firmware version on the Ipod will be 1.1.5.
The latest version is 2.1 but Apple will charge you £5.99 for the pleasure.

If you connect your Ipod to your P.C. and wait for it to link up with Itunes (Assuming you have installed the latest version) you should see that it offers you a chance to restore the version of firmware you have. ( Middle of screen, slightly to the right )
If you hold down the shift key and click restore, it will ask you for a file ending in .ipsw to restore to. So now you know the firmware file ends in ipsw ( As your Ipod told you ).
If you could find version 2.0 of this file ( Use your favourite search engine ) and restore to that file, the next time you reboot your Ipod, it should recognise that you have version 2.0 and it will offer you version 2.1 from Apple for free.
This way, your firmware is finally updated by Apple rather than any D.I.Y. method.

Hope this helps.

Is this a 1st gen one? The reviews make it sound like it is.

The second generation one is 219 on the site, cheaper than the 1st gen one at the moment!

2nd gen looks more like the iphone 3g (i.e. a bit thinner), it has a built-in speaker, and external volume controls. All the other improvements e.g. genius playlists are software based and also available on the 1st gen with the software update.

This was answered earlier by MCH1 - "the new one has a built in speaker and some volume buttons on the side, also it seems a bit slimmer."

I've reserved mine for tomorrow just in case.
#34
recently bought a 2nd gen one for sprog for xmas, which with staff discount was £200 inc a £15 itunes voucher. Have reserved one of these as may take the asda one back for a refund.
#35
Reserved one also - just in case. Could this be 2nd gen?
#36
The link does state it comes with the updated software, so this potentially saves you another £6 as I think that's what the update costs?

This is true, got the flyer today.

Remember the Wii trick,

buy £50 gift voucher get £5 voucher free
buy £100 gift voucher get £10 voucher free

Then use £150 of vouchers to buy i-pod and get £10 voucher free

= £25 of free vouchers
#38
reserved one aswell, looking forward to the flyer scan :whistling:
#39
next cheapest is Pixmania. They are selling it for £178.7 inc delivery.

No. The reviews state it doesn't have a speaker.

But you could get a 2nd gen if they make a mistake and give you the wrong one by mistake.
