Question: Activation lock For No Reason. - DONT REMEMBER ANYTHING. HELP.

Please help.

My old iPod from High School has been sitting in my drawer for years. I occasionally open it up and use it to look through old pictures or text messages. However, a month or so ago, it completely locked me out for NO reason. It said that the owner of the device used "Find My iPod" on it, but IM the owner. I bought this thing brand new. There was no previous owner. I NEVER used find my iPod for it.

I do NOT remember the Apple ID, password, or gmail for it. I got this when I was young, being a proud little independent girl I was, I made a new email for it and a new Apple ID that was separate from my parent's Apple ID. I DO NOT REMEMBER THEM. I tried searching for it a million times, I've went to gmail to try to find the old gmail. NOTHING. I'm so stressed and angry about this. JUST UNLOCK MY FREAKING IPOD. It shows me the amount of letters that was in it and I could probably give you an idea of what it could be, but exact, no. Ive tried everything.


iPod touch, Other OS

Apple is pretty strict about unlocking locked devices. Not even the FBI could get them to do it.

If you still have the original receipt then take it, your ID, and the phone to an Apple Store. Either that or do your best to remember your Apple ID. People are going to have to start learning those IDs are worth money (scammers know that).

If you forgot your Apple ID - https://support.apple.com/HT201354

If you forgot your Apple ID password - Apple Support - https://support.apple.com/HT201487

edit: Oh, also remember responses here come from other users like you, not Apple, so WE CAN'T FIX IT for you.

Again, I was young. I have proof that it's me because on the current ID that I use, which is the one I'm on right now, you can see in my devices that I'm also logged into that iPod Touch. But of course, it needs the one that I used to activate it, which I don't have.

I also used both of those links already before posting this. sooo...
