    Apple announced today they are recalling the first gen Nano due to battery heating up issues. They exchanging your old worn out Nano for a Brand new shiny one.

    Just follow this link--http://www.apple.com/support/ipodnano_replacement/

    Just read it fill out and wait.

    I still kept mine from 2005. About 60 days after I bought it, my dog chewed it up and it doesn't work. Will they still replace it?

    They don't seem to want the old units back . Just got off the phone with Apple . But the rep I was talking to had no idea just what to expect as the replacement . Any ideas ?

    I just went online and filled out the info to receive a new one. It said that they will send a box with a shipping label to my address. I am supposed to send the ipod to them before receiving a new one.

    I wonder if they will send the same generation Nano. I mean, do they still make them?

    I have been wondering the same thing. From what I have heard they don't offer this generation of the ipod now so makes me also wonder if they are going to send out a newer one or are they just replacing the batter and resending them back to us. Still a great deal either way. Still waiting for my box so I can send mine in. Maybe soon.

    They are gonna replace them. Because they explicitly mentioned that the personalised ones will be replaced with non personalised ones..

    Ok shipped it out Friday. Now just waiting for the return. Cool thing is you can monitor it from Apple service site for your device.

    Ok it looks like they are running out of replacement 1st gen nanos so they sending out 6th gen nanos to replace 1st gen ones. I still have not received mine and the Apple site is STILL saying replacement pending so I guess it is a JUST WAIT. But if I receive more information I will post here.

    Cool just checked my Status on the Apple site. Now it says Replacement product shipped so mine should show up any day now. I am ready to get it.

    Also the 6th Gen smallest is what a 8 Gig? Or do they have a 4 Gig too?

    Ok I received my new iPod Nano today. 8 gig and very happy. I guess I can use my iPhone charger to charge this thing. Didn't think about the charger being different. Oh well at least I have a new Nano with a 90 day warranty.

    Sorry slow about uploading my pic. I have to figure out how to make them smaller for posting here.

    Any information on how to do this would be nice.
