Ignore "aahron" solution as it is of no value. The ipod touch DOES slide open. At the bottom of the screen place your finger at the left and slide it to the right. A new screen will appear prompting you to enter the pass code to unlock the ipod touch.

Yes a lock icon means the ipod is locked. You need the pass code to unlock it.

How to disable ipod


Your iPod touch shows a lock symbol on the top of the screen when it's in lock mode. This protects your iPod from being accidentally bumped on or off while you're focused on other things. Getting in and out of lock mode is somewhat intuitive, but can take a couple of tries the first time.

What Does Lock Mode Do? Lock mode keeps you from accidentally turning your iPod on or off.
This helps save battery life if you have it locked while it's asleep.
It prevents your music from turning off if you've put your iPod in your pocket. However.
it's not an advanced security feature -- anyone can bring your iPod out of lock mode if they know how.
Lock Symbol When you see the lock symbol on the top of your iPod touch's screen, it always means that the iPod is in lock mode. There's no other reason for that symbol to appear. If it appears and your iPod is not in lock mode, just turn your iPod touch off and then on again and it should disappear. b> Entering Lock Mode b> Press the Sleep/Wake button on the top right of the iPod touch. You may need to hold it down for a couple of seconds. Don't hold it down for too long, as ten seconds or so will force a restart and turn your iPod completely off and then on again. b> Exiting Lock Mode b> Press the Sleep/Wake button again, and wait a moment for the screen to light up. You'll see a slider bar that prompts you to slide it to wake up and unlock the iPod touch. Put a finger or thumb on the solid part of the slider, then slide your finger to the right. This gesture is simple, but might take a couple of tries. You need to tap firmly on the slider, then keep contact with the iPod as you slide to the right.

How to hard reboot your ipod touch if it is locked


So if anyone has ever forgotten their ipod touch's passcode or somehow gets locked out and can't get back in even if you restart it, you can try the one and only solution, the hard reboot. It works great, except you will lose all data on the ipod touch. There are two ways to complete this task successfully, first of all you can use the first way i learned, which is: hold both the top screen lock button and the home button for about 8-10 seconds, and the slide to power off thing should pop up, don't slide it though. When you reach this point you release the top screen lock button but continue to hold the home button until the ipod turns off, then it won't turn back on until you plug it in to a computer and then restore it using itunes. The second way is a little bit easier, you just have to hold down the screen lock button and the home button at the same time for 30 seconds and this will do the same thing as the first method. Thanks for reading, I hope this helps :D

Shorter Simplified Version: Hold down sleep and home button until you see the restarting apple logo, then release the sleep button and continue holding the home button until it shows the sign to plug into your computer then restore.

How to unlock an ipod


Apple's iPod touch, a portable music player with a touchscreen display, is powered by a built-in rechargeable battery that provides up to 40 hours of audio playback and up to seven hours of video playback when fully charged. To conserve power, the iPod touch locks by default after a minute of not being used. If you want to use your iPod touch after it locks, you will need to unlock it. You might need to type a password, depending on how you've configured the device.

Press the "Home" button, located below the screen, or press the silver "Sleep/Wake" switch located at the top of the device. Swipe a finger across the "Slide to Unlock" slider on the screen. The iPod touch unlocks. Press the "Home" button or press the "Sleep/Wake" switch when you have enabled passcode protection on your iPod, then swipe a finger across the "Slide to Unlock" slider on the screen. The "Enter a Passcode" message appears. Type in your passcode, and then tap "OK." The iPod touch unlocks. Forgot Your Password b> Connect the iPod Touch to your computer using the USB cable. Wait for iTunes to open and sync with your computer. Eject your iPod Touch from the computer by clicking the "Eject" icon beside the iPod's entry in the "Devices" section of iTunes. Disconnect your iPod Touch from the USB cable. Your iPod Touch will be turned on and will be unlocked. Tap the "General" menu on the iPod Touch. Tap "Passcode Lock," and then tap either "Turn Passcode Off" or "Change Passcode." If you tap "Change Passcode," you can then enter a new passcode.

How to unlock it


How to Unlock an Apple iTouch

Although locking your iPod Touch prevents accidental touch commands, the feature also prevents you from accessing your media and applications while the device is locked, according to the Apple site. The lock code is the 4-digit code that was created when the passcode lock was first enabled, and displays a passcode menu prompt on the iPod Touch's screen when the "Home" or "Power" button is pressed and the unlock bar is slid across the screen.

Instructions
1 Push the "Home" button on the iPod Touch's screen, or push the "Power" button on top of the device to show the home screen.
2 Slide your finger on the iPod Touch's unlock bar.
3 Enter the 4-digit passcode using the on-screen keypad to unlock the device. If you cannot remember the passcode, plug the dock-connector cable into the iPod Touch and plug the other end into your computer's USB port. According to Apple, the iPod Touch will automatically unlock after it is connected to your computer.

Cannot use the slide button


Try resetting your iPod by:
  1. Holding down the home button (button on the face of the iPod) and lock button (button on the top of the iPod) at the same time for a few seconds. An option to turn off the iPod should appear at the top of the screen.
  2. Slide the slider to turn off, and wait until screen is totally blank.
  3. Press and hold the lock button (button at the top of the iPod) until an Apple icon appears. Let go, and try the slider now.
  4. If that does not work, it is most likely that you damaged the touch sensor on a certain part of your screen - go to Apple to get it repaired. If you bought it within less than a year, it may be covered under warranty - which means you can get a free replacement on the spot.

I just bought mine from online..and i dled itunes and put music on there...but its stuck on the slide to open screen and i wont read my slide..and also the lock is up there but everytime i tried turning it...


Hold the sleep/wake until the device powers off.

Use the Five Rs to recover the iPod. You will lose the data that is currently on it if you restore but you can always re-sync the data to the iPod.

Ipod screen lock


Hi there,

on the top of your ipod, there should be a little slide bar. Slide this over so that no orange is showing on top. This will unlock your ipod for use.
