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.
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."
Good Luck, I hope this helps

My son was playing on my ipod. and managed to lock it. and i dont know the pin as a friend gave it to me and has moved to an other countery. what can i do to find out the pin


Use restore feature in iTunes. Simply connect the iPod to you computer and choose "restore." (Click what you named your your Ipod nano.) This is generally pretty easy and can be done in no time. For more information, you can visit the Apple Support website.

If that doesn't work, try holding in the menu button and the middle button and it will reset your iPod, but the music will not be erased.

My new ipod pink nano 8gb keeps freezing


First you have a bad port on computer you probably need to plug your cable in the back of the computer. If you keep letting your ipod freeze like that your going to seriously mess it up. I'm going to teach you a way to fix your problem with freezing. the next time your ipod freezes hold the "MENU" and "CENTER" button at the same time. After that you need to take your ipod and restore it through iTunes. Please rate this response I would like to know if I helped.

You can't really lock an ipod, something else that I don't understand must be happening. Just go to apple.com/itunes and download itunes on your computer. It's a free download, free software. Install it and it will run you through the motions of reclaiming that ipod as yours.
