I have a iPod touch 1st generation and was about to sell but somebody said to me to get in touch with Apple because apparently they are recalling them and I could get a iPod touch 5th gen? Is this right, and if so how could I do that?
There's no exchange or repair for the 1st Gen iPod touch. Perhaps someone confused the exchange from the 1st gen nano with the touch
You can find a full list of Apple exchange and extended service plans here:
A recall means specific things in the US and most other countries and you would see formal advertisements, probably a note on Apple's home page www.apple.com as well as receive email and/or direct postal mail if a product was recalled. The iPod touch hasn't been recalled in the normal sense of that word.
