You will have to restore it via iTunes   (this will erase everything you have on it, unless you have a recent backup)  ...

connect to iTunes msg box will pop up saying it cannot be syncing since it is locked with a pass click the ipod in iTunes and hit "Restore" wait for it to restore Click the button to restore to backup or set it up as new ipod your done
hope this helps...it is from memory from when i had to do this

Hello.
Welcome to Fixya Community.

You need to restore it with iTunes, but you can't restore an iPod While its Locked With a password, well in order to Force it to Restore you shud put it on Recovery Mode.
Hold down the power and home keys down for about 10 seconds each while plugged into iTunes. When the screen goes black, release the power button but keep holding the home key until itunes says. We have detected an itouch in recovery mode.

From there you can restore as normal via iTunes.
and that will reset you configuration including Your Password.
Thank you For Using Fixya.
Good Luck.

plug it into your computer and through itunes on your original computer you will be able to reset it. If it is not the original computer that you are using you will be able to reset it but will probably lose the information on it.

How to unlock an ipod


Apple's iPod touch, a portable music player with a touchscreen display, is powered by a built-in rechargeable battery that provides up to 40 hours of audio playback and up to seven hours of video playback when fully charged. To conserve power, the iPod touch locks by default after a minute of not being used. If you want to use your iPod touch after it locks, you will need to unlock it. You might need to type a password, depending on how you've configured the device.

Press the "Home" button, located below the screen, or press the silver "Sleep/Wake" switch located at the top of the device. Swipe a finger across the "Slide to Unlock" slider on the screen. The iPod touch unlocks. Press the "Home" button or press the "Sleep/Wake" switch when you have enabled passcode protection on your iPod, then swipe a finger across the "Slide to Unlock" slider on the screen. The "Enter a Passcode" message appears. Type in your passcode, and then tap "OK." The iPod touch unlocks. Forgot Your Password b> Connect the iPod Touch to your computer using the USB cable. Wait for iTunes to open and sync with your computer. Eject your iPod Touch from the computer by clicking the "Eject" icon beside the iPod's entry in the "Devices" section of iTunes. Disconnect your iPod Touch from the USB cable. Your iPod Touch will be turned on and will be unlocked. Tap the "General" menu on the iPod Touch. Tap "Passcode Lock," and then tap either "Turn Passcode Off" or "Change Passcode." If you tap "Change Passcode," you can then enter a new passcode.

I LOCKED MY IPOD TOUCH BUT I FORGOT MY PASSWORD. COULD YOU HELP ME UNLOCK IT?


If your iPod touch is password locked, the only way to get past it is to force the unit into restore mode by doing the following: 1. Plug the iPod touch in to your computer. 2. Hold the sleep/wake button and the menu button down at the same time. Keep them both pressed until you see the 'restore' screen (an iPod cable and an iTunes disc symbol) on the iPod touch. Release the buttons. 3. iTunes should now display the iPod touch, along with a message that the iPod touch is in recovery mode. Click the RESTORE button in iTunes to restore the iPod touch. Please note that doing this will erase the contents of the iPod touch -- that's how the system is designed to work: a passcode lock is meant to protect the data on the iPod.

I forgot my password for my itouch to log onto wifi


You will need to get into your wireless router to see what your password is, then put it into your iPod to connect it to the network.

here you go, in detailed steps:

  1. Plug in your iPod.
  2. Wait for it to load completely.
  3. Open My Computer (or computer if on Vista). Make sure you can view hidden files.
  4. Go to iPod_control.
  5. Go to the folder named Device.
  6. If your iPod is locked, there will be a file _locked . Rename the file to _unlocked.
  7. Safely remove your iPod and it will be cleared.
Hope this helped! ^_^ Have a great day~

My sister put a lock on my ipod and now forgot the code how do i unlock it


Okay thats easy... for an ipod touch just put it in in DFU mode, so you hold down the menu and off button for 10 seconds. then you want to let go of the off button and continue to hold onto the menu button for about another 10 seconds.. they plug it into your computer and iTunes will say they found an ipod and that you need to restore it.. Just restore it and reload all of your stuff from iTunes.
