Hey mpCvitak,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, when the incorrect passcode is repeatedly entered your iPod Touch will become disabled for longer and longer intervals. Eventually you will only be able to attempt entering the passcode again by syncing the iPod with your computer.

Unfortunately, syncing an iPod to a computer that does not have your iTunes library present removes all the content from your iPod's memory. To avoid this, iTunes 7 and later versions offer a way for you to transfer the files that you purchased through the iTunes music store to that computer, by authorizing it to be used with your iTunes account. Please keep in mind though that this may only apply to the files that you purchased and downloaded through iTunes itself.

Alternatively, you may always attempt a system restore. System restores return your iPod to the original factory settings, but all the information that you have loaded onto it may be erased (including your selected password). If you're not quite sure how to perform a system restore, you can find step-by-step instructions by visiting the following link:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,

I forgot my password


Give the Apple companies 1800 number a call. If it is the password to your ipod, they will ask for the VIN number on the bottom back side of the ipod and ask you to verify information, if the info is correct they will give you the password or help you to unlock it

Ipod touch is locked forgot password cant unlock


plug it into your computer and through itunes on your original computer you will be able to reset it. If it is not the original computer that you are using you will be able to reset it but will probably lose the information on it.

Hello.
Welcome to Fixya Community.

You need to restore it with iTunes, but you can't restore an iPod While its Locked With a password, well in order to Force it to Restore you shud put it on Recovery Mode.
Hold down the power and home keys down for about 10 seconds each while plugged into iTunes. When the screen goes black, release the power button but keep holding the home key until itunes says. We have detected an itouch in recovery mode.

From there you can restore as normal via iTunes.
and that will reset you configuration including Your Password.
Thank you For Using Fixya.
Good Luck.

Forgot passcode


If you forgot your iPod Touch password the only solution is to wipe and restore your last backup.

Apple Knowledge Base Regarding lost passwords

Instructions from Apple Support Document (Page 110)
Restore iPod touch from a backup:
  1. Connect iPod touch to the computer you normally sync with.
  2. In iTunes, select iPod touch in the sidebar and click the Summary tab.
  3. Click Restore to reinstall the iPod touch software, restore its default settings, and delete data stored on iPod touch. In iTunes, you can also restore from a backup without deleting data stored on iPod touch.

My sister put a lock on my ipod and now forgot the code how do i unlock it


Okay thats easy... for an ipod touch just put it in in DFU mode, so you hold down the menu and off button for 10 seconds. then you want to let go of the off button and continue to hold onto the menu button for about another 10 seconds.. they plug it into your computer and iTunes will say they found an ipod and that you need to restore it.. Just restore it and reload all of your stuff from iTunes.
