    battery going bad? Return to best buy?
    Back in September 2006 I bought a Generation 5 black iPod 30GB.
    Now, almost a year later, it seems the battery is going bad. When it is fully charged, I listen to music for about an hour and a half and the battery is near dead. Video is near to impossible to watch without having it plugged in.

    Now when I bought it I got the 2 year service plan from best buy. Does it cover the battery? Also can I bring it in to my store and have it fixed there or will I have to ship it out. And my last question is, what are the chances that they will just replace it with the ipod classic?

    any one know?
    I don't really feel like shelling out $249 for the new classic if my battery can be covered under the service plan

    the service plan may cover the battery. often with small devices like this, they tell you to buy the plan since buying a new battery for many things is almost as expensive as buying whatever it goes in.

    just give them a call, you bought the plan, you may as well try to use it
