    If you don't have the passcode, the only thing you can do is Restore your IPT from within iTunes:

    1. Connect iPod touch to your computer.
    2. In iTunes, select iPod touch in the source list and click the Summary tab.
    3. Click Restore to restore iPod touch to its original settings and erase all data and media on iPod touch. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process.

    Hope this helps...

    Force it into restore mode

    1.Connect iPod
    2. Hold sleep and home (ignore the slide to power off).
    3. Wait for it to show the logo and let go off the sleep button
    4. Just wait until it shows up in iTunes

    i don't see the reason to lock the ipod touch when it's always with you. for me, my ipod touch is always in my pocket no matter where I go.

    Otherwise i wouldn't know what to tell you because I never lock my ipod.

    Hold the sleep button on the top until the "slide to power off" shows on the screen and turn it off.
    Launch iTunes and while holding the Home button (keep holding it) plug the iPod into you computer.
    You should be asked to restore the iPod.

    yes there is one very simple thing you can do,that well diffinetly restore the ipt.Just take it with the reciept to a apple store,they would know what to do in an event such as this.I
    m sure apple officials thought of somthing,incase somthing like this was to happen.Either that or just give the ipt back to it's original owner,,

    Well, you can assume that's the case, but I chose not to.
    If it's true, he's a jerk.
    But, I'm not going to assume this is the case.
