iPod Nano product recall
Apple - Support - iPod nano Replacement Program
Have you got a 1st generation iPod Nano sold between September 2005 and December 2006?
Apple is recalling them and replacing them due to an over-heating problem.
Time to have a rummage in the back of your cupboards and swap it for a new one!
We've found two... might as well send 'em back!

I've got one with a smashed screen, wonder if they'll still take it?

As long as it still plays music, they can't argue really!

Was thinking of buying one of ebay, they're quite cheap, then sending it in for a new one, makes sense to me.

would you get the latest generation or the same type you sent off?

I'm trying to find mine... I used it all that not long along on the stereo system (has a iPod dock) so I know its here somewhere.

I think it's pretty unlikely you'll get the same generation. TBH it doesn't matter.. I've lost nothing if they do a straight swap.

From reading the Apple Support Forums people who have been into stores to ask have been told it will be a like for like swap ... so you are probably going to end up getting a refurbished unit with a fresh battery.

One of mine only gets used in the car and the battery life is getting fairly chronic, so this is fine by me.

Arranged for three of my old ones to go back! Once I get the new ones, just sell them...

Recieved three packets today to post them off to Apple Care in Lutterworth!
There is speak about getting refurbs as replacements but I have spoke to apple care and they say that they will be brand new ipods and could be more up to date ones depending on how many ipods they get back in etc. etc.
Steve jobs has left us now though, so will service be the same???...
I will let you all know in six weeks!

Got confirmation that my replacement products are in the post :O, What a good turn around seems I posted them near the end of last month.

I got my replacement this morning and they're not replacing like with like.
I've got a new current 6G 8GB nano in exchange (no headphones or cable - just the nano)

i did read on the engadget website that they were replacing with new ones (well latest gen ones) Apple reportedly swapping recalled iPod nanos for 6G counterparts; you have yours? -- Engadget
