How to Fix an iPod Touch Stuck in Recovery Mode With a Free Program An iPod Touch's "Recovery Mode" is for alleviating major operating system issues. Recovery Mode rolls back your iPod's operating system, stripping problematic updates and downloads from the unit. The goal of this total system recovery is to revert the iPod to a stable, usable version. Before you use Recovery Mode, exhaust other troubleshooting methods. In some cases, Recovery Mode is triggered automatically after a failed system update or system restore. When it goes into Recovery Mode automatically, you cannot use your iPod until you complete the recovery process. You can get your iPod Touch out of Recovery Mode using Apple's free iTunes software.
Things You'll Need -Apple iTunes-USB cable
Instructions 1 Turn on your computer and open iTunes. If you are prompted to download any new iTunes updates, install the updates before proceeding. 2 Plug an iPod USB cable into your computer. Do not plug the other end into your iPod Touch yet. 3 Turn off your iPod Touch. If the iPod Touch is already shut down, skip this step. 4 Press and hold the Home button on your iPod Touch, and plug the other end of the USB cable into your iPod Touch. 5 Release the Home button after you see a white USB icon and the iTunes logo appear on your iPod Touch's screen. At this time, a pop-up should appear on your computer screen, explaining that the software has detected an iPod in Recovery Mode. 6 Click "OK." 7 Click on the iPod Touch from underneath the "Devices" heading on the left-hand side of your screen. 8 Click on the "Home" tab, and then click "Restore." Once it's restored, your iPod Touch goes out of Recovery Mode and you can start using it again. The restoration process takes a few minutes. Do not disconnect your iPod Touch until a prompt appears, letting you know the system restored successfully.

To reset any frozen iPod with a click wheel, you will first want to ensure that the hold button is not on or stuck by sliding it to the on position and then off again. Next you will need to simultaneously press and hold both the menu and center buttons for at least six seconds but until the apple icon appears on the screen. If this does not resolve the issue, the next best resolution is to plug the iPod into a wall charger and let it charge for several hours or until fully charged. Then repeat the reset process.
To reset an iPod touch, you will need to press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least six seconds or until the Apple icon appears. As will the iPod click wheel models, if the first attempt does not work I would suggest charging the unit for several hours or until fully charged. After words, repeat the reset process. If a reset does not resolve the issue, the next trouble shooting step would be to restore the iPod using the latest version of iTunes. To restore an iPod touch, open iTunes on your computer and connect iPod touch to your computer with the provided USB cable. After a moment or two you will notice that in the left column under Devices, you will be able to see an iPod icon; click on your iPod touch, then click on Restore in the Summary tab. Follow any on screen instructions and do not remove the iPod until after it is completely restored. To restore an iPod click wheel, open iTunes on your computer and connect iPod touch to your computer with the provided USB cable. After a moment or two you will notice that in the left column under Devices, you will see an iPod icon; click on your iPod. In the resulting page you will see a button that says restore. Click that and follow any and all on screen instruction ensuring that you do not disconnect your iPod until it is completely restored. WARNING: If you do not have a back up of your data on the iPod you will have to re-gather it. I always recommend making a back up of your iPods content before an issue arises to ensure that there will be no lost data.
Go to settings and turn your wi/fi on. Then choose your network and type in your password. Then under setting you need to go to mail, contacts, calendars and set up your e-mail account with the address and password and then at the top click account on and turn fetch new data on also. Then hit your home button and then select the mail icon to get your mail.
I would try reconfiguring your e-mail setting. Here is how you do it:
Set Up an Email Account to Use on an IPod Touch
Set up your iPod touch to sync by attaching the wide end of the USB cable into the dock at the bottom of your iPod. Insert the smaller end into a USB port on your computer. The keyboard ports on a desktop computer do not have enough power to sustain syncing, so use one of the ports on the computer itself.
Open iTunes and wait for your iPod to be recognized. Go to the "Info" tab at the top of the summary screen that appears.
Choose the type of email account you want to sync from the list of options. Refer to your iPod touch user manual to find out which mail programs are compatible with your iPod. Click on "Sync."
Get a free email account to use with your iPod touch if you do not have an email account through your Internet Service Provide (ISP). Both Yahoo! and Google Mail (Gmail) offer free email accounts that can be used with the iPod touch (see Resources below). Go to "Settings," "Mail" and "Account" to add an email address from Yahoo! or Gmail directly to your iPod touch.
Check and Send Email on Your IPod Touch
Tap the "Mail" icon on the home screen of your iPod. When you have unread mail in your inbox, the number of messages will display in a red circle at the top of the icon.
Touch the inbox or other mailboxes that you may have set up to see the unread messages. Each unread message will have a blue dot next to it.
Read a message by tapping on the subject line. The full message will then appear on your screen. To read another email, you can touch the up and down arrows or you can go back to the inbox to select another email.
View photo, video, word processing and spreadsheet attachments by downloading them to your iPod touch. Tap the attachment to open it. When it has finished downloading, you will be able to see it on the screen.
Reply to an email that you have been sent by tapping the "Reply" icon (it looks like a backward arrow) when you are viewing the message.
Send a new email by tapping the icon that looks like a pencil and paper. Use the keyboard to enter in the recipient's email address or choose an address from your contact list. Type the text of your message and touch "Send."
Check for new messages in your inbox by tapping the "Refresh" button. This is an icon that looks like a circular-shaped arrow.
Delete an email by touching it and then touching the trash can icon.
WARNING Syncing an email address to an iPod touch activates the email account and makes it ready to use on the device. It does not transfer actual email messages from the computer to the iPod touch. Conversely, remember that any changes in the settings that are made to the email account through the iPod will not sync back to the computer. Individual settings will have to be restored on the computer if desired.
Try restoring it, plug your iPod into your computer and open up iTunes, select your iPod in the list to the left, then click the "Restore" button located right under the big picture of your iPod model. Restoring will take several minutes.
