Luckily this is fairly easy to resolve if he has already synced the iPod Touch with iTunes once already.
Connect the ipod touch to the computer running iTunes that he originally synced the iPod Touch to and select the iPod Touch from the list of items on the left in iTunes. on the right-hand screen, you will see a number of buttons and check boxes. One of the buttons will be labelled "Restore"
Click this button and follow the directions provided to restore the iPod Touch to original settings.
Don't worry about any apps that he might have already bought being lost. He will be able to download them again without having to pay for them.
If he hasn't at synced his iPod Touch with a computer running iTunes at least once, then the procedure will be a little different. When you connect the iPod Touch to the computer running iTunes, iTunes will indicate that the device has never been connected to that computer and would you like to erase it and start using it on this computer. This will allow you to overcome the lock-out; however, there is a chance that all or some of his purchases might be lost. Follow the directions to pair the iPod Touch with the computer running iTunes and he should then be able to use the iPod Touch again.
Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

  1. Plug the iPod touch in to your computer.
  2. Hold the sleep/wake button and the menu button down at the same time. Keep them both pressed until you see the 'restore' screen (an iPod cable and an iTunes disc symbol) on the iPod touch. Release the buttons.
  3. iTunes should now display the iPod touch, along with a message that the iPod touch is in recovery mode. Click the RESTORE button in iTunes to restore the iPod touch.

ALL DATA WILL BE ERASED !!!
