Hi,

To unlock it, you'll need to restore it.

First, you'll need to download iTunes onto your computer (if you haven't already). This will let you put music and other files onto the iPod.
you can download it here by typing in your email address and then clicking "download".

Once you've downloaded and installed iTunes, open it up.
Then, plug your iPod into the computer.

After a minute, your iPod should show up along the left hand side of iTunes, under "Devices" (like "zpod" in this screenshot)

Click on the name of the iPod (in this case, you'd click on "zpod").
This will take you to a new screen that tells you information about the iPod.
Click on the Summary tab (along the top), then click "Restore".


This will clear off all the data on the iPod, including the passcode that has it locked, and basically make the iPod like new, so you will be able to put whatever music, etc. you'd like onto the iPod.


Let us know if you have more questions about it!

Cant unlock my ipod


have you tried the sliding lock button at the top of the unit? If you can see the red indicator it is locked.

if it is locked by the password you will need to connect it to the computed, start iTunes and on the sync page you shoud see a reset button.
Do a reset and resync.

Hope this is of some help.

Hi there. one of the kids has locked my ipod and i dont have a code or pin number to unlock it. Are you able to help please?


If you restore the iPod using iTunes, you should then be able to reload your media and use the iPod as normal.

If you don't want to erase all the media on your ipod, you can try the method posted here:

Unlocking a 30gb ipod


The great thing about unlocking iPods is that it is very easy, and almost never wipes out the data.

To unlock the iPod, simply plug it into a computer with iTunes. The iPod should unlock, or at least display the "Do not disconnect" screen. It will not automatically sync with a foreign (other computer than it was originally synced with) computer without first asking you, and if you click no, the iPod should be unlocked.

If this does not solve the problem, notify me and I will try to find a different method of unlocking the iPod.

Happy to help

Well, the most you could do is get your money back and buy another phone from somewhere else. When the phone is locked, there is no way to use it without unlocking it.
