Ok, so i bought an old iPod from someone whos not local and when i plug it in it shows "Activate iPod - This iPod is currently linked to an Apple Id (m*****@yahoo.com) sign in with the apple id that was used to set up this ipod" is there any way i could reset it and put my itunes info in, because it wont let me set it up unless i log in with the old itunes address. also, ive put it in recovery mode, soft booted it (restarted it), and turned it off, yet nothings worked
