iPod touch 2G replacement

iPod touch 2G that I bought about 8 months ago recently started having wifi issues. (with or without jailbreak)

If I bring it into Apple, are they going to give me a new one or a refurbished one? (I need a refurbished one because I don't want to use a tethered Jailbreak)

If they replace it, it is usually with a refurb running the latest firmware.

Not too worried about the firmware. I guess I just gotta hope its a relatively old refurb then. Wish me luck!

I doubt it will be an old refurb... It will be equivalent to the currently available iPod touch.

The tethered JB isn't an issue at all. I've not had the need to do a complete power shutdown on my V3 and it runs just as good as my jailbroken V2. My guess is they will swap it with a new V3.

BTW, if you are stuck on the V2, just don't open the V3 and sell it. The refurbed V2s come up on the refurb store occasionally for $169 (8gb). Shouldn't be hard to break even very quickly

A lot of people say you get the same one you already have. So since yours is a G2 that's what they would give you again. Which makes sense because that's what you bought to begin with.
