Here are a few things to try:

Check that your timezone settings are correct on the touch:

On 2.1 firmware, it's:
1. Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar > Time Zone Support
2. Settings > General > Date & Time > Time Zone

On your pc, also make sure that it has the correct date, time, and time zone.
Finally, there have been problems when you allow your computer to enter hibernation mode with iTunes running. After waking up the pc and syncing, time and date can get messed up.
To avoid this, close iTunes before letting pc go in hibernation mode.
Best of luck!

How can I unlock a disabled ipod touch?


Step 1:
The iPod Touch is a type of iPod that features a touch screen and can function as both a portable media player and as a pocket computer. It is possible to password protect your iPod Touch so that you will have to enter a password every time you want to unlock the iPod Touch screen. If you repeatedly enter the incorrect passcode, your iPod Touch will become disabled. To unlock a disabled iPod Touch, you need to sync your iPod Touch device with iTunes on your computer.

Attach the iPod Touch data cable to the bottom of your iPod Touch device and attach the other end of the data cable to an available USB port on your computer. Open iTunes on your computer and then select your iPod Touch device from the list of available devices on the left side of the iTouch window. Click the "Restore" button. If you have previously backed up your iPod Touch, you can choose to restore the device to the last back up or any saved backup. If you have never backed up your iPod Touch, this process will restore your iPod Touch's factory settings. Wait while iTunes syncs with your iPod Touch and restores the device. iTunes will prompt you when this process is complete.

How to unlock a ipod 8 g


font.f1 {font: 12.0px Times font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.


• If you cannot remember your pass code, you will unfortunately have to restore your
iPod Touch which will wipe everything off the iPod and restore it back to factory settings.

The only positive side to this is that your music, video, contacts and calendar settings will still be in tact but you may lose text messages mail and so on.

One more possibility: if you were able to recently sync your iPod Touch with iTunes before you forgot your passcode, when you perform a restore, iTunes will put all of the data of your last sync in iTunes (before the passcode issue) back onto your iPod.

• This is the process which will allow you to regain access to your iPod Touch.

I hope this helps.

I want to reboot my ipod touch apple


Just re-boot or restore?
Reset is more about hard reset, for those familiar with terms associated with PDA, Palm or Windows Mobile. In other word, reset is simply a forced reboot
  • power is cut off from iPhone or iPod Touch to restart the device from fresh.
Restore will erase and wipe out completely all information and data that contained inside the device, including musics, songs, videos, contacts, photos, calendar information, call lists, maps, applications installed and any other data.
  • To reset the iPhone or iPod Touch, press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously at the same time for at least ten seconds, then the LCD display will clear and the Apple logo appears on the black background. When Apple logo appears, reset is done.

Using the Restore function for your iPod touch is part of standard troubleshooting procedure. Restoring your device will erase all data from your iPod touch, including songs, videos, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All iPod touch settings are restored to their factory condition.
Whenever you restore your iPod touch, Apple highly recommends that you perform a sync prior to restoring in order to back up any changes since your last sync. If you have movie rentals on the device, see this document before restoring.
Use the following steps to restore your iPod touch:
Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update. Connect your iPod touch to your computer. Select your iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices. Select the Summary tab. Select the Restore option. When prompted to back up your iPod touch's settings before restoring, select the Back Up option. If have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.
Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you (As long as you've backed up your device, you should not have to worry about restoring your iPod touch).
Once the restore process has completed the iPod touch restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up

My ipod want let me unlock it or shut it off


This is an ipod touch, correct? If not please let me know, I have the steps for the older ipod models as well.
If it is frozen you will simply need to reset it. However if it is locked and you do not remember or know the password, the ONLY way to unlock it is to restore using itunes. Below I have posted a step by step on reseting and restoring just in case you unsure as to how to do either.

I have a new Ipod touch and I can receive emails on RR but cannot send or forward emails on RR. I would appreciate a step-by-step guide to set-up RR for sending email or forwarding emails....


Try this...
1) On your Ipod Touch select "Settings." 2) Select "Mail, Contacts, Calendars." 3) Under Accounts select your "Lwilson22@satx.rr.com" account. 4) Under the "Outgoing Mail Server" heading select "SMTP." 5) Under "Primary Server" it should indicate ""RR SMTP Sever" (or something to that effect)  - If so, make sure that the "Server" is switched to the "On" position.  (If it was originally switched off then switching it on should do the trick.
 - If not, continue to Step 6. 6) On the "SMTP" page select "Add Server..." 7) Fill out the fields accordingly.  If you are unsure of the information check with you service provider (in this case Road Runner).  - In most cases it would likely be "smtp.rr.com," plus you own "User Name" and "Password." 8) Select "Save"
