Your iPod is a tempting and easy target for thieves because they are expensive, small and easy to steal. Because they are so small, they are also easy to lose. It used to be that if you lost your iPod, it was gone forever. Now, there are ways you can find it. However, there are steps you\'ll need to take to make recovering your potentially lost or stolen iPod easier. Read on to learn how to find a lost iPod.

Register your iPod with Apple and keep a record of your serial number to help you find your iPod if it is lost. You can go to Apple\'s website to register online and create an Apple ID name and password if you don\'t have one already with iTunes. Type in your serial number, which is found on the back of your iPod, after logging in and fill in your address and phone number. If someone calls Apple to report finding your lost iPod, Apple will call you on the phone number listed in your profile. Obtain iGuard tracking protection software online through their website. After you pay the fees for the service and register on their website, they can help you locate your iPod if it is stolen. After reporting it stolen, iGuard will contact you via email with the location of the device (IP address, PC user name, ISP and city and state) as soon as your iPod is connected to a computer with an Internet connection. Register your iPod with the Lost iPods site. With a $5 payment, Lost iPods will provide you with a sticker on your iPod where the person who has found your iPod can contact Lost iPods and if someone reports a serial number of an iPod found on their site, they will immediately contact you. Purchase protection for your iPod with GadgetTrak and register on their website. Install their agent files onto your iPod and if your iPod gets lost or stolen, simply log into your account on GadgetTrak\'s website and activate the tracking for your iPod. As soon as your iPod is used on a computer with Internet access, you will be contacted with all the information about the computer and location. You will even be provided with a map pinpointing the exact location of the user of your iPod. Post an ad in the paper or on Craigslist asking for the return of your lost iPod. Explain exactly when and where you lost your iPod and offer a reward if you can. Though rare, it has happened that people who have found iPods have returned them due to ads they have read in the paper or online. Report your stolen iPod with the police if you are a victim of theft. Give them the serial number and description of your device when doing so to better your chance of finding your iPod.

Tip

Lost Password for iPod Touch or iPhone?


To bypass a lost or forgotten password on your iPod Touch or iPhone, you'll need to go into Recovery mode:

( First method that worked)

You do this by plugging the iPod touch into a computer then hold down the power button for about 5 seconds until you see the red slider button to power it off, slide to power off the iPod touch. Then press and hold both the power button and the home button at the same time until you see the Apple logo, then release the power button but keep holding in the home button. Hold the home button in until you see the iTunes logo on the iPod touch, then let go of it. You can then restore your iPod using any computer but keep in mind that you will lose everything.

( Shorter method that I'm told will work, but untested)

Make sure your iPod Touch is completely turned off and unconnected from your computer. Hold down the Home button, and connect it to your USB cable. It will automatically turn on when you connect the cable. Just keep holding the Home button until the Connect to iTunes logo appears. That's it...

font.f1 {font: 12.0px Times} Hello and thanks for contacting FixYa Technical Support.

Unfortunately, if you cannot recall the Passcode for your son's iPod Touch, then you will have to restore the iPod Touch.

The good thing about a restore however, is if you have previously synced the iPod Touch,when a restore is performed, all the data will be wiped from the iPod, BUT, the most current back up of when you last synced your iPod Touch will restore all the data back to the iPod.

I am providing an article from Apple Support, on how to restore your iPod Touch.
Restoring the iPod Touch


This will be the only way to restore access to the iPod Touch as well as create a new passcode.

I hope this helps.

Regards,

Forgot passcode


If you forgot your iPod Touch password the only solution is to wipe and restore your last backup.

Apple Knowledge Base Regarding lost passwords

Instructions from Apple Support Document (Page 110)
Restore iPod touch from a backup:
  1. Connect iPod touch to the computer you normally sync with.
  2. In iTunes, select iPod touch in the sidebar and click the Summary tab.
  3. Click Restore to reinstall the iPod touch software, restore its default settings, and delete data stored on iPod touch. In iTunes, you can also restore from a backup without deleting data stored on iPod touch.

  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.

ALL DATA WILL BE ERASED !!!
