    I found this online, i found it VERY helpful:

    "

    You can use iCloud on a 2nd gen ipod touch IF you already have an iCloud account. I also have a 4th gen ipod touch with iCloud account. There are other ways to obtain an account such as updating from mobile me, ect. I don't know of other ways but you can google it. I just know it works if you ALREADY have an iCloud account. Here is what I've found so far:


    Connect your device by WiFi, then:


    Mail:

    Make a new Others > MailAccount in Settings under Mail, Contacts, Calendars. Set it as follows:

    IMAP (incoming Server)

    Server: imap.mail.me.com

    SSL: yes

    Port: 993

    Username: The Apple ID you use for iCloud (username@me.com)

    Password: your password

    Description: whatever you want


    Outgoing mail server: smtp.mail.me.com

    Server: smtp.mail.me.com

    SSL: yes

    Port: 587

    smtp Auth: yes

    Username: The Apple ID you use for iCloud (username@me.com)

    Password: your password


    Calendars:

    Make a new Others > CalDAV account in Settings under Mail, Contacts, Calendars. Set it as follows:

    Server: caldav.icloud.com

    User Name: The Apple ID you use for iCloud (username@me.com)

    Password: your password

    Description: whatever you want

    Next open the Calendar App and select (check) the Calendars you wish to view on the device.

    (some devices will sync quickly, others require restart)


    Contacts:

    Make a new Others > CardDAV account in Settings under Mail, Contacts, Calendars.

    Server:contacts.icloud.com

    User Name: Apple ID you use for iCloud (username@me.com)

    Password: your password

    Description: whatever you want

    (if you have problems with sync, goto Advanced Settings. SSL=OFF. let it re-verify. Settings should be re-set by iCloud to

    SSL: ON, and Port: 443)



    Find My iPhone:

    Make a new MobileMe account in Settings under Mail, Contacts, Calendars.

    User Name: Apple ID you use for iCloud (username@me.com)

    Password: your password

    There will be a switch to turn on Find My iPhone."

    Thank you!  The instructions were very helpful.  I am able to get my @me account on my 2nd generation Touch.
