  • You bought an armband for the 4th generation iPod. I did the same thing. I don't know why but they moved the earphone socket from the right to the left side. I still had the packaging so I returned and bought the correct one. If you still have it, look on the back of the packaging and it says which model the armband fits.

    I had to purchase from the website, they didn't have in the store at the time. Don't know if they will have it in the stores now that generation 6 iPod is out You may have to get on the website. However, I would still try to get them to take it back.
