My IPOD touch is deactivated. How do I activate it again?

    What do you mean by deactivated? Do it show the connect to iTunes logo? If so connect to a computer and follow the instructions. If it is locked with an unknown passcode , place the iPod in recovery mod and restore it via iTunes. See:

    Don't know what deactivated is.

    Can you provide more info?

    If by deactivated you mean off, use the power button, on the top of the Ipod Touch, hold down the button until you get the Apple screen, and it will turn on. If by deactivated you mean something else, more details would be useful.

    Probably it happened because you input the password too many times wrongly. You have to reset the Ipod. Shutdown the iPod (Hold for a few seconds the bottom on the top and slide the red bar to shutdown). With iTunes open and the cable plugged into the computer, but NOT to the ipod, press and hold the menu bottom (the one with the white box on the front of the ipod) and at the same time insert the ipod cable. It will restore the ipod. You will loose all the ipod information!!!
