Apple Registration - 09/26/06 04:41 PM

I just received a 60 GB iPod that I bought for my son's birthday, factory refurbished, from Smalldog.com. I tried to register it at the Apple site, but I get "We could not recognize the serial number." I've been on hold at Apple Support for about 20 minutes now. <br><br>____________________________________________________<br>Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,<br>But to be young was very heaven!

After an hour and a half, I got cut off. Then I called back and was on hold for another half hour. When the woman answered, she said they were having phone "issues" and that it'd be better for me to call back tomorrow. I wasn't too civil with her, I have to admit.<br><br>____________________________________________________<br>Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,<br>But to be young was very heaven!

Why can't Apple's customer support be as elegant and user-friendly as its products?<br><br>

I wonder if the phone system computer has been hacked?<br><br>

At this point, I'm sort of fantasizing about what I'd do if I could hack it <br><br>____________________________________________________<br>Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,<br>But to be young was very heaven!

I did hack it once, but all I was able to do was play Trey's music on iTunes. <br><br>

Congratulations on the iPod and Happy Birthday..<br><br>I bought iWork '06 family pack and installed it on 3 Macs, I registered 2 and couldn't register the 3rd one, although the license is for 5 Macs on the same network... I went to the Apple site and tried to register, I got the same error you got.. A few days later, I got an email from Apple thanking me for the registration..<br><br><br>www.waleedsgallery.biz<br>

I called tonight and got someone who actually knew what she was doing. Issue resolved without being shunted off to "tech help" as I was last night.<br><br>____________________________________________________<br>Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,<br>But to be young was very heaven!
