Not through apple - only option would be to trade in at somewhere like CEX or sell on here and put a lump of money towards the new one.

thanks mate can you explain the gen and what each gen has? it there any point me paying £120 for a 16gb 1 gen that has 2nd gen software?

a 1st gen can't have 2nd gen software. the hardware is completely different
a 1st gen can have the latest firmware 3.xx but that doesn't make it a gen 2 or gen3

Thanks for that mate are ther any disadvantages of buying lets say a 16gb or 32 gb 1st gen? would i be able to play the latest games on them?

they'll all play the same software. biggest difference between gen1 and gen2/gen3 is that gen2/gen3 has built in speakersand a volume control switch whereas gen only has a headphone socket. gen 3 are lighter and slightly thinner IIRC. there are other differences but IMHO they are negligible.

Thanks a lot mate this is exactly what i wanted to know!

would you recommend me to buy a 16gb 1 gen for around £110 used?

thanks anyway mate do you know if i can upgrade 32gb 3rd gen ipod touch?

the latest firmware for all the ipod touches is out (3.1.3) but if you want to be able to jailbreak it then don't install it as blackra1n won't work anymore. no newer version of blackra1n planned until at least os4.0 is out but maybe never

Crap just bought a 32gb 3rd gen what can i do now?

there is no discernible difference between 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 other than apple locking the jailbreakers so just enjoy it as it is but if you have any interest in jailbreaking it then don't let itunes upgrade the firmware. blackra1n works great on 3.1.2

3.1.2 you can jailbreak butyou'll be forced to blackra1n it each time your proper turn it off or run out of battery (tethered jailbreak)

Which firmware will depend on when it was manufactured. It won't come with 3.1.3 but iTunes will try and update it straightaway. If you want to jailbreak then don't update it. Mine's on 3.1.2 and it's a 2g. Iirc only iPhones have a tethered jailbreak
edit: ipod 3gen will be tethered
