This is a bad idea, if you lock it. Follow the guide to it:

1. Get your Ipod Charger (USB) and charge it in on your laptop/computer.

2. Make sure you got the latest Itunes, if not go to www.apple.com

3. Of course you will lose all of your data, songs, videos.
4. Click Restore on Itunes

5. After it finishes restoring, write your Ipod name and click ok.

6. Unplug the USB Cable and click any language you come from.

It should finally work by now.

PS(1): Sorry to lose all of your data.
PS(2): Instead of locking with the combination code, look on the bottom side (the one with the headphone, USB, etc...) there is a lock on the left side. If you push it its lock. To unlock push it the other way around.

Hope this helps! If not, reply this back to me with a problem.

Try restoring the software back to factory settings using Itunes. This should erase the code.

See these instructions for unlocking the iPod Screen Lock if you don't know the combination.

  1. You can connect it to the first computer it was every synced with (this should be your friend's computer?) Open iTunes, then disconnect the iPod. It should now be unlocked.
  2. If you can't do that, then you can restore the iPod to factory default settings. Note that this will erase all music and data from the iPod, along with the Screen Lock password.

Well, to make a long story short, I finally unlocked my ipod after perilous hours of invalid guesses. What did I do? I have a habit of making obvious passwords-I simply goofed this time. I used the last four digits of my mother's cellphone number! Yes, yes, silly me silly me. However, I was quite relieved when I finally unlocked it. Thanks! =)
