If you have a first generation black or white iPod nano manufactured between certain dates apple will replace it with an 8mb 6th generation iPod nano free of charge. See site for details but it is simple process to apply for free replacement.

I'm hoping that's 8GB and not 8mb?!
Be a bloody short playlist otherwise?!!!

Had mine replaced a year ago, received 8 gig silver

Did this with mine last yr and couldn't believe it when a brand new one arrived. Mine was only 4gb and they replaced it with silver 8gb! Result.

Did this ages ago and they gave me a 8gb for my 2gb ..most impressive thing Apple have ever done for me

Did this over a year ago. Got an old 1st gen off ebay for £12 and sent it off - got myself a snazzy iPod watch now :-P

Do I need to send them accessories, box aswell? I don't have the originals purchased at that times..

Yes it was working but it was badly bashed and scratched

Thanks very much for this info

Does this have to be an iPod nano 1st gen in white/black only?

In my experience it doesn't even have to be working as long as the serial number qualifies.
Got dead ipod nano for free years ago and found it in my box of dead electronics and thought I'ld send it off anyway, since it wasn't costing me anything, and voila, free new ipod nano from apple!

I did this too last year, definitely worth it. You can track how your order is progressing through the site. For anyone with any doubts this is the one you receive back http://cdn-static.cnet.co.uk/i/product_media/40000172/image1/440x330-ipod-nano6gen-front.jpg

I wonder if they have an ulterior motive behind it, I'm thinking perhaps the parts/elements within the 1 generation tech is worth more than the stuff in the 6G. I doubt they're doing it out of the goodness of their hearts. But i guess win/win for someone with a 1G nano

Great, thanks for this info. Found an old one in my cupboard, so will send for new one. Free = Hot !

This was because of a massive lawsuit. The original ipod nano had batteries from two suppliers and one supplier's battery had a higher rate of failure of burning or something. It took ages for the lawsuit to go through and then apple had to offer this replacement for people in a few countries (USA, UK, Japan and a few others).

I also read the very first people who sent theirs back in got refurbished 1st gen ipod nanos. then they seemed to have run out and started sending out the last gen ipod nanos.

nice

I sold my broken one for 2£ a few months ago

i had 2 of mine replaced and passed this new post on to my staff at work because loads of them have them, great post great upgrade and worth all the heat it can get

Nice find, didn't know about this and just ordered a replacement, see how it goes.

Im sure the person will always remember to use punctuation from now on. One less unnecessary evil in the world. Well done.

I must be being dumb, where do I go for a replacement?

it's a bit tricky to find, it took me a while. here's what's on their website
apple.com/uk/…nt/

also this
apple.com/uk/…ir/
all the products they replace for free

Voted Hot - glad I came across this as my IPod was just sitting in a drawer unused for years - I was gifted a newer model which had more space.

Ordering one now

Brilliant, done & accepted

Cheers OP

Bah, I sold my 4gb for £45 on flea bay not to long ago...

Damn, I only, two weeks ago, thrown my one away I think it was the best looking one of the entire set.

Wow. In for this. Thanks finder !

Thank you.

Got this is why I HOTUKD found my old one in my draw at parents house from when it stopped working years ago!

Amazing. I have two from when I ordered one with a free speaker (which I still use and is great) from a deal on here. Even better when I ordered the one, they sent two by accident

I LOVE HUKD!
