  1. it’s really weird… if you have a picture of the iPod please attach to this comment box… we’ve helped user to get their right in our service site, a replacement unit for iPod nano 1st gen. I do not quite know why they did’t accept your request.

  2. Called AppleCare, booked me an appointment with Apple Store, didn’t even solve anything, they said if the Ipod is broken like the battery popping out, then you can get another one, I read forums and watched youtube videos of the replacement call, and there iPod was fine no problem, nothing, working, no damage what so ever. What if the iPod overheats and cause a fire, Apple can be liable and get sued for millions of dollars, I feel so unsafe using the iPod. This is unacceptable customer service, not happy. I might have to sell my iPod and get a new one. 🙁

  3. In 2015 now and the replacement program is bogus now, tried putting my serial number doesn’t work, called apple store not very helpful at all.

    1. hi thomas, the program is still active and has not been declared closed by apple. You should call AppleCare and come to an apple authorized service provider. The condition is iPod nano has not been repaired in UNAUTHORIZED service provider.
