    Hi yesterday i was at school taking a test and when i fisnished it I went to hand the test to the teacher and suddenly the bell rang. I left my ipod touch on my backpack and I when i got back to my desk it wasnt there. I told the teacher about my situation and he said he was going to check.

    The first thing that the person will try to do is sell it. Good thing is that my school is really big and the only people the person may know its from school. When i had it, I was able to access the internet over at school, which is something not everyone could because my friend found out the password of the network and all that.


    Is there a way i can track my ipod or find out who stole it or any type of information that would help me identify the person?

    Any help is appreciated

    It must be someone from your class. Ask around a little, don't be too specific. Be observant, and keep your eyes out for any pesky students who might be playing with an iPod Touch. It can't walk too far away.

    I don't think there is any tracking method for it. It's all you man. Good luck.

    Yeah thats the thing, If it was somebody from my class, they wouldnt take my ipod out to play with it, unless they are really dumb which would be good for me

    If your ipod is at school it would be connected to the network so you could ask you schools tech teacher to watch the network for any (your ipod's name) joining the network. that way if they track that it's at school then your teacher could search the people in your class

    Okay, a friend of mine bought a stolen iPod. Generally, these guys aren't very smart, because they're stealing iPods. Now since Apple really cannot track the location of the iPod as far as I know, you're going to have to scare the crap out of these guys.

    In that room, talk really loudly to a friend that you're going to go the police in a few days with your parents and track down the iPod. Say that you've heard that the police and Apple have tracked people down before and sent them to jail. You know the drill.

    The guy that I knew heard from the kid that stole it that he was tracking it down and returned it to him the next day.
