Passcode Lock Option: Erase Data Ater 10 attempts unchecked

Someone stole my Itouch in school. Would the thieves be able to get in after 10 failing attempts of entering passcode and retrieve personal information or get it in recovery mode? My passcode lock option: the erase data after 10 attempts was unchecked also I have set up a passcode for my iTouch. What happens next? Would the thief be able to get personal information?

They shouldn't be able to get any personal information from it, unless you have your credit card numbers saved on it or something

Just got iphone back it says its diabled but for 23,685,670 minutes?


How to fix it if your iPhone is disabled?
If your iPhone is disabled and has to be connected to iTunes, you can connect it to an authorized computer, and the Enter Passcode window will show again. If you insert the right passcode this time, your iPhone will be all right again.
If you forget the passcode completely, I'm afraid that the only way to make it back to work is to reinstall.


Note, that the iPhone will erase itself after ten incorrect password attempts in a row. You can turn this off under Settings > General > Passcode Lock.
6 attempts: 1 minute
7 attempts: 5 minutes
8 attempts: 15 minutes
9 attempts: 1 hour
10 attempts: Erase data. If that option is off it will require connecting to iTunes to unlock.

When i turn on my phone it goes straight to passcode and wont unlock


You, or someone else has put a passcode lock on your phone. If you do not know the passcode, try some simple ones, 1234, 0000, 1111.
be careful, there is also an option to erase the phone if you get it wrong 10 times, and that might have been turned on.
if you cannot figure it out, you have no option but to wipe it and restore from your backup

According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the IPod by doing the following:
Connect your IPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one IPod synced with), and open iTunes.
When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked, but you said that was not possible so you will have to do the following to solve your problem.

If you can't unlock IPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod.
Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your IPod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone.
All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize.
Apple also notes that company "representatives cannot unlock an iPod if you forget your combination. If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the IPod, which will erase all music and data."

Ipod touch disabled


If you repeatedly enter the wrong passcode, iPhone or iPod touch will be disabled for longer intervals, before you can try again. After too many unsuccessful attempts, you won't be able to try again until you connect to the computer you normally sync with. Note that starting with iPhone 2.1 software, there is a setting to cause the device to erase itself after 10 consecutive incorrect password attempts. This setting is off by default. It can be turned on by tapping Settings > General > Passcode Lock after you enter a correct passcode.
If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device on the computer that was used to originally sync the iPhone or iPod touch so that you can reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced to the iPhone or iPod touch, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode but your data will not be present.

My itouch is disabled and i dont remember my password. i try 2 connect it to my computer thru itunes but it wont show up because it says it is locked.


i had the same problem. this is all the steps needed, calling apple isnt necessary.
first: press down on the top power button and on the menu button
second: keep pressing, eventually the screen to turn it off will pop out. ignore it and keep pressing.
third: the itouch will turn off completely but dont stop pressing
fourth: the apple sign will come out. you may now release.
fifth: now you should be able to connect to itunes that will restore your ipod.

your welcome.

oh and get some ice for your fingers . lol.
