That sucks. Well at least with an iPod Touch you don't have a $140 phone bill for two people. I guess at the least we can get free upgrades.

So can we finally get rid of the myth that says iPod Touch owners have to pay because of some law.

We don't.

Apple is not - despite the wishes of the dribbling fanboys - above the law so this shows that Apple charge iPod Touch owners because they can and because they want to screw us for even more money.

Remember this when OS4 comes out and someone says "It's because of this law" - which was crap anyway because US laws - despite the wishes of the US Administration - do not apply globally.

I updated my iPod Touch 3G 32gb from 3.1.2 to 3.1.3 a few days ago, and it was free.

It should be a standard feature that you can turn on/off in-game music and sound effects separately in all games

Going from 3.x to 3.x.newversion has always been free.

Going from 2.x to 3.x costs. And I don't see that apple has changed that officially. Can anyone with a 2.x iPod confirm?
