1G nano Recall

Still have a 1G nano laying around? It looks like Apple has recalled the 1G nano for possible battery issues. I still use mine for audiobooks, so I figured I may as well see what they will replace it with.

An Apple translation to "replacement unit" can be a refurbished iPod which may well be a 1G nano or any other similar model. I don't really expect anything more, the battery in my 1G nano is pretty much due for replacement.

I'm torn between if they send a brand new ipod or a refurbished one. I would like a new nano, but I hate the fact that they don't have physical buttons anymore. I use my nano at the range with a pair of "sound dampening" headphones to drown out all the gunshots. For where I am, I need physical buttons, not to smudge a touchscreen with gunpowder residue and oil. We will have to see what happens. Worse comes to worse, it's getting sold for a physical buttoned ipod.

AppleFreak, you may want to try and go through the process to see if it is eligible for replacement. You might get a newer version for it. Or at least a battery replacement making it a viable iPod for 2 more years.

It really doesn't matter what is in stock. Apple will handle it.

The link to see if you are eligible is here: https://supportform.apple.com/201110/



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....

Thanks for the link. Argentina is not among the countries supported for the replacement (as usual... quick to sell, slow to service). Thanks anyway!!!

I called Apple to see if I could get a credit towards something else - but no, they insist on replacing the 1st generation Nano with another 1st generation Nano. Dug it out of the drawer and sent it back and am waiting for my "new" one to throw back in the drawer. They suggested that I could sell it on e-Bay for $80 bucks - yeah, right.

I guess I was pretty lucky. I submitted my request Nov 12th, received the shipping box on the 22nd and Apple shows they received my Nano on the 23rd. Status still shows as replacement pending.

I submitted a request on 12/04. Haven't received the shipping box yet.



If you don't have a regular, good backup routine for your music and media you will eventually lose it all.
Hint: Using your iPod as your backup strategy is not a good plan.

Okay, got my shipping envelope the other day, but now I'm on the fence about sending it in as I've heard they're not replacing them with original 1G nanos anymore but instead replacing them with the newer touch-screen nano. For me that would really suck as I use the 1G in my car and I'm 99.99% sure that the newer nano won't work with the iPod2Car device I have in my car. I suppose I could look into if there is an updated iPod2Car device that is compatible with newer iPods but I'd really rather not have to spend the bread.

Just got my box here in Canada a couple of days ago. The box has a sticker on it to phone UPS for pick up, but they don't want anything to do with it. Now to try and get a hold of someone at Apple.
