It is possible to reset the iPhone back to the manufacturing default settings but this will format the hard drive. The good news is that you can restore all of your files from your itunes library.

The first step in the restore process is to turn off your iPod Touch.
Plug the iPod Touch into your computer and power it back on. Press the "Home" and "Sleep/Wake" buttons together until the Apple logo appears. At this point release the "Sleep/Wake" button but continue holding down the "Home" button. If all goes well the the iPod Touch should reboot, and iTunes should recognize that the iPod Touch is in recovery mode. Select "iPod Touch" in the source pane of iTunes.
At this point click "Restore" and follow the prompts to complete the restoration process.

I hope that information above has helped is some way.

The only way to get rid of the password is to do a "Factory Reset" which will delete everything on the iPod. You hook it up to the computer and then when you select the iPod in the "source" panel of iTunes, select the "Summary" tab. There should be a "Restore" button. Just follow the instructions that iTunes gives you. For more detail, Apple support has a page that has every little thing on it, but this should be enough to get you through it.

Iforgot my lock combination for the ipod


You have to restore the ipod using itunes. An apple rep will tell you the same thing. It sucks to loose your music if you don't have all of the music on your computer; and that people assume just because you forgot your password you stole it. Hope this information is helpful to your issue :)

See these instructions for unlocking the iPod Screen Lock if you don't know the combination.

  1. You can connect it to the first computer it was every synced with (this should be your friend's computer?) Open iTunes, then disconnect the iPod. It should now be unlocked.
  2. If you can't do that, then you can restore the iPod to factory default settings. Note that this will erase all music and data from the iPod, along with the Screen Lock password.

How do I Unlock Ipod screen if I forgot the 4 digit password?


Well, to make a long story short, I finally unlocked my ipod after perilous hours of invalid guesses. What did I do? I have a habit of making obvious passwords-I simply goofed this time. I used the last four digits of my mother's cellphone number! Yes, yes, silly me silly me. However, I was quite relieved when I finally unlocked it. Thanks! =)
