Anyone know what an Apple store would do with a Gen 1 iPod touch ?

My wife has a first gen 16 gig ipod touch (from the O2 offer on here last year). Still in it's 1 year guarantee.

It's now not holding a charge for more than about 2 hours, we've tried all the power saving things (wifi off all the time, reseting and restoring). But nothing helps.

If she books into a Apple store genius bar would give her a battered old referb or what ?
She's kept this one in really good condition and isn't keen on getting something 'tatty' if they swap it out ??


They dont give battered ones out, either repair or exchange for a refurb like new.


Have you discussed this with them when you booked the appointment?

I would suggest if it's under guarantee, they'll simply send it off for replacement battery.
You could save a journey by doing this yourself.

Haven't booked yet. She's was worried she'd get ratty used one she want me to check what they did first.

I'll give the local store a call and see what they say, thanks
