Put it up for sale.. lots of people won't even care. As long as you sell it at a decent price. I mean.. really.. how long do you spend looking at the back of your iPod?

Is there a way to transfer the remaining warranty to the engraved iPod?

i have no clue, but this is waht i think i might do.... when i brought back my ipods to bestbuy, they didnt even look in the box to see what was wrong with it, so if i had to bring back my engraved ipod, chances are, they wouldnt even notice that its engraved. so if anything were to go wrong, i'd still get a free one back, but i would love my beloved engraving lol.. ya its my name and phone # engraved on the back btw..

why did you get the engraving if you didn't plan to keep it? or at the very least, why didn't you get another colour or something, then at least you'd have more reason to keep both.

i wouldn't count on using your BB warranty with your new iPod. doesn't the warranty specify the serial number on the iPod? not to say it wouldn't work, but you'd be taking a chance.

i'd sell the old one with the warranty, since the new one is engraved, but that's my opinion. you'd get more money back for the one with the warranty (and receipt) than the free one you got with the engraving.

I don't think a warranty can be transferred from product to product...

Maddogjones- I'm not sure if returning your engraved one to Bestbuy would work, because then (according to their records and your receipt---they would either cross off the iPod Mini or take your receipt) your Bestbuy warranty would no longer be valid (because they would think you returned the iPod Mini, so why would they honour the extended warranty on a returned item...they'll notice that that's fishy).

If I were you, I'd sell the engraved one and keep the one with warranty...if something goes wrong with the engraved one you'll be kicking yourself for keeping it just for the engraving.

Oh, I see now that you mean you would just pass off the engraved iPod for the BestBuy iPod to get it replaced (so you would have one warranty for two iPods). Kind of a shady thing to do, but if you were caught I guess you could just say "Oh gosh, I must have gotten them mixed up".

well i've already gone there and got it replaced, i just get a new receipt with nothing crossed off or anything,... it is kind of shady for me to do that, but i bought the 3 year warranty for a reason: to make sure i always have a working ipod.. last time i brought it back they didnt even look at my ipod, or check the serial number or anything..
