You can reset its password....but you'll lose all your data. Here's how...

  1. Verify you have iTunes 7.5 or later. Apple recommends using the latest version of iTunes.
  2. Disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone or iPod touch, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.
  3. Power off the device (Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the the iPhone or iPod touch to turn off.
  4. Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting the USB cable to iPhone. When you reconnect the USB to iPhone, the device should then power on.

    Note: If you see the message "Charging... Please Wait" or you see the screen pictured below, let the device charge for at least 10 minutes to ensure the battery has some charge and then start with step 2 again.
  5. Continue holding the Home button while iPhone starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo.
  6. When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message:

    If you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, then disconnect the USB cable from iPhone and repeat steps 3-6.

Cant unlock my ipod


What generation? What do you mean, the slide to unlock, or the screen lock? If you mean the screen lock, you should connect to iTunes, because some iPods unlock after connecting to iTunes. Otherwise you should reset it with iTunes. But then all your data will be lost. Otherwise you should try try try. You've got 10000 chances ;-) If you have an iPod Touch, you might mean the slide to unlock screen is frozen. I had that one time, after trying out spoken feedback. After that it locked the screen and the touch screen wouldn't work anymore. I couldn't do anything anymore, not unlocking, not turning off spoken feedback, not even turn off the iPod. I was lucky to find there was an update for the iPod so iTunes turned it off. Then it responded also again.
More details next time please!

My ipod touch says to connect to itunes but cant unlocked


You can bypass that lock by doing the following steps:
  1. Plug/connect your device to a computer (PC or Mac)
  2. Turn it OFF
  3. Press and hold the POWER and HOME buttons together for EXACTLY 10seconds
  4. Release the POWER button but keep holding the HOME button until the computer beeps indicating that a USB device is recognized.
  5. Open iTunes and restore your device.

Warning: Restoring will delete all data on your device but this is the only way for you to recover it.


If you don't get it at first, try holding the buttons for lesser time or see the other procedures on my tip (link below):

I cant get the lock of my i pod


Connect your iPod to your computer and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it should no longer be locked. This will only work with the computer that you first used when you first connected your iPod and ran iTunes.

If this doesn't work, you can restore your iPod to factory settings, which has no lock code. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to iPod.

If you want to to do this, connect your iPod to your computer and run iTunes. Click on your iPod on the left side of iTunes, then click on the "Restore" button on the right. After it's been restored, click on the "Sync" button to copy all your music and videos back onto your iPod.

Ok i locked my ipod and cant remember the combo and i cant find "my computer"in which every1 says to go to to unlock it i need help!!!!!


If your iPod touch is password locked, the only way to get past it is to force the unit into restore mode by doing the following: 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. Please note that doing this will erase the contents of the iPod touch -- that's how the system is designed to work: a passcode lock is meant to protect the data on the iPod.

Ipod Nano can't unlock volume lock


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. 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."
