Use FaceTime Between an iPod 4 and an iPhone 4
In every depiction of the future there's at least one of two things: flying cars and video phone calls. One of these staples of the future is actually available in the present in the form of Apple's FaceTime video calling feature.
This feature allows fourth-generation iPhone and fourth-generation iPod touch users to make video calls with one another when they're connected to a Wi-Fi Internet connection, improving our ability to stay connected to one another and bringing us one step closer to "the future" in the process.
Tap the Contacts application icon, followed by the plus icon in the upper right corner of the application window to make a new contact.
Type the first and last name of the contact you wish to have a FaceTime call with in the spaces provided.
If the contact uses an iPhone, enter the phone number of the contact in the space provided.
If the contact uses an iPod touch, enter the email address of the contact in the space provided. Tap the "Done" button to save the contact.


Tap the "Settings" icon on the iOS device's home screen, followed by the "Wi-Fi" option.
Tap the name of the Wi-Fi network you wish to connect to beneath the "Choose a Network" heading.
Enter the network password in the space provided and tap the "Join" button to join the network.


Tap the Contacts application icon, followed by the contact.
Tap the "FaceTime" option to place a FaceTime call to that contact.
So long as the second iOS device is connected to a Wi-Fi network, it will receive the call.

how to unlock it


How to Unlock an Apple iTouch

Although locking your iPod Touch prevents accidental touch commands, the feature also prevents you from accessing your media and applications while the device is locked, according to the Apple site. The lock code is the 4-digit code that was created when the passcode lock was first enabled, and displays a passcode menu prompt on the iPod Touch's screen when the "Home" or "Power" button is pressed and the unlock bar is slid across the screen.

Instructions
1 Push the "Home" button on the iPod Touch's screen, or push the "Power" button on top of the device to show the home screen.
2 Slide your finger on the iPod Touch's unlock bar.
3 Enter the 4-digit passcode using the on-screen keypad to unlock the device. If you cannot remember the passcode, plug the dock-connector cable into the iPod Touch and plug the other end into your computer's USB port. According to Apple, the iPod Touch will automatically unlock after it is connected to your computer.
