Just reset it ...
after a few failed attempts it will erase the data on it (if they set it up that way)... not a simple thing to do

You Have to contact the previous owner because there is not a way to unlock it with out the password. This is for security reasons.


Thank You!!!!

Itouch disabled


Unfortunately, the only easy and reliable way to reset the passcode on an iPod touch or other iOS device is to perform a complete restore of the device, which will wipe everything on it. Connecting your iPod touch to your original iTunes library will reset any disabled passcode counter, allowing you to make additional passcode attempts, but it will not bypass the passcode.

The good news, however, is that as long as you have a backup of your iPod touch in iTunes or iCloud, you can restore that backup onto your device after you've erased it, thereby allowing you to basically pick up where you left off. Restoring from backup will recover all of your data and settings except for the device passcode, which you will be prompted to re-enter. You may also need to re-enter some passwords for things like e-mail accounts or Wi-Fi networks as these are secured by the device passcode, and thereby lost if you can't remember your original passcode.

Note that even if you haven't already made a recent backup of your device, you can still make one even with the device locked provided you still have your primary iTunes library available-usually the iTunes library and computer that you originally setup your iPod touch with. To do this, simply plug in your iPod touch, right-click on it in the Devices listing in iTunes, and choose the Back Up option from the context menu that appears.

My itouch is locked with a passcode and it shows the itunes with the USB port pointing at it and when i plugged it into my itunes it said that it couldnt connect to the ipod because it was locked by a...


Okay well you have to do a full restore. Turn your itouch completely off. With it off, hold down the circle button and plug in the USB cable connected to your computer. The itouch will power on and you will see the apple, but keep holding in the circle button. After 15-30 seconds, you will see another (different) cable/itunes screen on the iphone. iTunes should then recognize that the itouch is in recovery mode and you can then do a restore. You should be good from there.
Remember, turn off the itouch. Then while its off hold down the circle button and plug it in. Keep holding down the button until the recovery screen comes up. Good luck!!

I forgot my itouch passcode and i don t want to restore


the only way you can work around your passcode problem is by restoring your itouch.
keep trying to remember it.
if you decide to restore you can put the iTouch in DFU Mode and restore.
let me know and I can help you with that.

Itouch locked and harddrive crashed


Hello pegharding!

To reset the iPhone or iPod Touch, press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously at the same time for at least ten seconds, then the LCD display will clear and the Apple logo appears on the black background. When Apple logo appears, reset is done.
