Question about Apple iPhone 3G
I got a new phone not an iphone and now i just want to use the iphone as an ipod touch. so im thinking the problem is that the screen where it says to plug into itunes wont let me access my iphone is there cuz i previously had a pass lock. so how do i override this to access the phone again?
unfortunately you will have to restore your ipod. Just connect it to your computer, and within itunes select the restore option on the ipod page.
The ipod should be able to be restored by the computer that last synced it.
Otherwise, try to restore your ipod via DFU mode. Here is a great step by step guide to do that. http://iphonefreakz.com/beginners-guide/howto-dfu-mode/
I hope this helps,

You may encounter the following symptoms while updating or restoring your iPhone or iPod touch:
If this occurs, you can place the device into recovery mode and attempt to restore the device again. If iTunes displayed an alert with an error code, see this article before attempting the steps outlined here.
Note: In certain situations, an iPhone or iPod touch will automatically go into recovery mode after an update or restore issue. If your device is already in recovery mode, you can attempt to restore using iTunes.
Use the following steps to place your device into recovery mode. If the device is already in recovery mode, you can proceed immediately to step 6.
If you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, try these steps again. If you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen but the device does not appear in iTunes, see this article and its related links.
When using recovery mode, you can only restore the device. All user content on the device will be erased, but if you had previously synced with iTunes on this computer, you can restore from a previous backup. See this article for more information
