I have some questions about the U2 Ipod..Please help!!

Hi! I'm hoping to get the new U2 Ipod that was just announced today. I have some general questions though about the U2 Ipod that someone who has any version could answer for me.

1.Is it pre-loaded with any/some/all U2 songs??

2. How many songs is it likely to hold total? I'm hoping to get the new one as I mentioned, so if anyone is a tech. genius could you give me a ballpark figure?

3. This is probably a stupid question, but it will allow one to put songs by artists other than U2 on it, correct?

4. Is this sold in stores or does it have to be specially ordered?

Thank you and God Bless!!!

First, it's not new. It's been the 30 GB iPod for a few months now and they have yet to increase size.

1. iPods have no songs pre-loaded. They used to give a coupon for $50 off the Complete U2 iTunes collection which has like 370 songs. I'm not sure if they still do. They do give a coupon for a free 30 minute video download.

2. The website says about 7,500 songs.

3. Of course!

4. Both. Depends on where you go, though. I haven't seen the new U2 iPod at stores like Best Buy or Circuit City yet. The old ones used to be there. You can definitely buy it at the Apple store if you have one nearby. And you can also order it from the link I put up there.

Great! Thank you so much! I'm definitely getting the Ipod for Christmas, so I'm pumped! I'm really looking forward to it. One more question: Can I take CDs I already have and download them to Itunes, so I don't have to pay for them again? Thank you and God Bless!!

No, you have to load them on yourself.

2. How many songs is it likely to hold total? I'm hoping to get the new one as I mentioned, so if anyone is a tech. genius could you give me a ballpark figure?

449 songs is what it has.

3. This is probably a stupid question, but it will allow one to put songs by artists other than U2 on it, correct?

Yes it will.

4. Is this sold in stores or does it have to be specially ordered?

You can buy it pretty much anywhere and Apple sells it instore and online too.

It is awesome but bloody heavy.

I know there are two threads going right now, so I'm posting on this one. We bought our U2 iPod about a week and a half ago at the Apple Store.

1. Anyone out there who has the latest U2 ipod know why I would keep getting a message when I plug it into my computer that tells me it's in "recovery mode" (I reboot the computer every time and it seems to go away)?

2. We tried to redeem the coupon for the U2 video download and it tells us that the code associated with this download has expired, even though it doesn't expire until this December I believe. Anyone had this problem?

3. and finally, the iPod tells us it's charged but when we used it on a roadtrip this weekend and played around in the various menus, by Sunday evening, the battery life was half green and then went into red. I think maybe we used it for 3 or 4 hours total. Could we really have used that much power?


just curious. we're going back to the Apple Store sometime this week to find out THEIR answers.

I just got my new U2 iPod from amazon.com today and I tried putting in the coupon code and it also told me it's expired! But on the coupon it says it expires december 25! did u find out what's up with that? It's not a big deal but it still kind of bothers me
