Question about Apple iPod touch

1 Answer

Bought ipod touch for my granddaughter for xmas. I think she was in a hurry to set it up and made a mistake either on her email address or password. When she tries to download free games, it asks for username and password and shes not sure what to do. Is there anyway to start all over to enter email and password correctly? I tried to restore and it still asks for original password and email which she doesnt know. Please help me because shes only 12 and shes driving me crazy. forrest tessler

The iPod is prompting your daughter for her iTunes Store Account details. To create a new account. Open iTunes on your computer, from the menu select "Store" and click "Create Account". You don't need to do anything to the iPod.

I just bought an ipod touch and I thought it was already set up for internet. How do I do that?


No, iPod touch have no way of connecting to the internet other than wifi (unlike iPhone that has 3G).
This means that there must be wifi signal around you before you can browse the web or receive email.

To check for available networks around you, on your iPod touch, go to Settings > Wi-Fi, then select the network that you want to use.

Often times, wifi networks are secured by a password, meaning, you need to ask permission to the owner of that signal to gain access. In a cefe for example, you can gain access to their secured network by simply asking the person in the counter.

When trying to send an email from my ipod touch, the message "cannot send mail the sender address was invalid". I am able to receive all emails and otherwise my email account (aol) works normally.


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.

I found an ipod and it says connect to itunes and i connected it to itunes and says can not connect to itunes because it has a password on it. how can you change the email?


The email? Why would you change the email? The problem is probably because someone put a password on the iPod. Because you can password-protect your iPod touch. Hope that I helped!

Lost password


Sadly when you loose a password for an apple ipod you will have to connect the ipod to itunes and restore it. To do this connect the ipod to your computer and wait for it to show up in itunes. As soon as it shows up in itunes it will load to the summary page. You will want to click on the restore/update option and follow the on screen instruction. A restore is the only way to unlock it without the password. Hope this is helpful to you :)
