    To unlock your iPod if you forgot your combination plug your ipod into a computer that does not have iTunes. Then just go and open the iPod as a drive (it will be listed in My Computer as a removable disk). Make sure you can see hidden/system files and go into System and delete the file named: "_locked". Unplug your iPod and viola... it's fixed.

To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including: problem unlocking - ipodnano3.jpg icon_ipod_5g.gif ipodphoto.gif ipodg4.gif ipodmini.gif

  • iPod nano (3rd generation)
  • iPod classic
  • iPod (5th generation)
  • iPod nano (2nd generation)
  • iPod nano
  • iPod with color display (iPod photo)
  • iPod (Click Wheel)
  • iPod mini
  • iPod mini (2nd generation)
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

Forgot my passcode for 8 GB ipod touch my brother got sent to jail and he just gave it to me after 3 years and he forgot it to so can you please help me


Hi wsimmie...

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.
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.
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."
Please take time to rate me thumbs up.

How to unlock my ipod 30 GB i have no idea how to open i forgot my code number plez help me &solve my problem thanks


If you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the
IPod by doing the following:
1. Connect your IPod to your computer (the first one IPod sync with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.

If you still can't unlock IPod by connecting it to the
computer that you use to manage the songs, you can restore your iPod to it's factory settings using Itunes.

Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.

I have Blackberry Curve 8520 and my younger brother put the security code on it and now he forgot the code!. Please help me, who can I unloked its security code?


You must contact your cellular service provider and request Tech Support assistance. They'll need to verify that you're the owner of the phone. Then, they'll give you a master unlock code which you'll enter on your phone's keypad. This will unlock your phone where you can change the PIN.
