Can anyone tell me if I will have a problem returning an ipod I bought at Target and used for a week?
Should I delete all songs on it? this model (mini) :confused: didnt have enough space for all my music/conversations.

Thanks!

You'll probably have to pay a 15% restocking fee since you've opened the package and used the device.

...although if you're going to buy a more expensive model with more capacity from Target they might go easy on you :)

I used to work for Target. Their policy is 30 days with receipt for full credit. Just delete what you have and tell them that it would not upload any songs to it. They cannot tell you you can't return it.

They can't restock it if it doesn't work :rolleyes:

Trust me it's been done many times by their own employees/

Thats the only way to get some things returned. With people that got loads of dead pixels on their PSP, they just made up a problem to get new.

Tidus, are you and I reading the same thread? I just re-read the original post. Can you tell me what part of it says that the unit is defective?

What do dead pixels have to do with this?

He is saying, to avoid the restocking fee, tell them the unit is defective and give a reason. And im saying thats what people did with the PSP when it had dead pixels, because alot of places wouldent return for that reason.

Oh, gee. I apologize for missing the fraudulent claim suggestion.

Quite a shock considering Tidus jumped on someone for wanting to use the LEGAL Rhapsody music service.

So it's not appropriate to discuss P2P programs, but it's okay to discuss defrauding Target.

I'm closing this thread as the only logical and ethical thing to do would be to contact the Target store where you purchased it and ask them.
