Well if you bought like a 4 year warranty wouldn't it be covered?

 

And if not, sell that fucking thing on ebay after like 16 months.

isn't it interesting..

new techmology is always convincing us to buy things we don't need...

the plot thickens..

not every ipod dies after 18 months. it not as if there's some internal 'countdown' until 'd-day'.

but, on top of that, all i have to say is:

Best Buy 4 year extended warranty: $40 = PRICELESS

 

since they already stopped making my model, as soon as it does break, i'll get upgraded to the 20gig. and 3 and a half years from now, i'll probably be ready for the 400gig one that im sure they'll have. so i can hold 47million songs in it.

The iPOD's unreplaceable battery costs $250 for them to replace and dies in 18 months.

then I watched the video...horrified....

 

then vinyl saved the day and I bookmarked that page.

both of my brothers have ipods that are at least 2 years old now... and the batteries are just as strong as when they were new...

seeking just to let you know i got a service plan for my mini disk player from best buy and the dood literally had to talk me into buying it... i didnt want it at all... i ended up buying it and my mini disk broke and they wouldnt honor my service plan or give me money back on the plan or player... it was a case of me not reading the fine print and a sales person not knowing what he was talking about.. the thing that really made me buy it was "and if you ever want a new one just throw this one on the ground and bring it in we'll give you a new one right then, or the better one if we dont have it..." yea... needless to say i didnt throw it on the ground but i do still own a broken mini disk..

^ you have to bitch about it until something is done. you can always request a refund of the warranty. complain to management ..

 

P.S. good website/video.

believe me i did it was prolly one of two times i have freaked out in public.. im normally a chill guy but i cursed and was talking to the manager the whole time... he said it was the employees fault and there wasnt anythign he could do since i got it at a different best buy than the one i was at... all i wanted was my player at that point the service plan was the straw that broke the camels back... or something..

there all the same corporate shit. one store has to honor the other's warranty.

 

just refer yourself to the next person in the chain of command.

 

that is all.

 

if that does not work file a complaint with your local government. if you really paid for a warranty and they refuse to honor it..thats a problem.

make sure your within your rights though, and not asking for anything thats not in writing.
