I am creating this post on my iPod Touch so give me a break. 1. Install this Configuration Utility it is the configuration utility that you are going to use. If you have windows you may have 2 extra steps. The reason for this is that in order to be able to install the configuration utility you need to have Windows .NET framework 3.5 and in order to be able to install that you need Windows Installer 3.1 so I am just going to list them all here to make it easier on you all. If you have a Mac skip to step 4. 2. Download And run Windows Installer 3.1 3. Download and run Microsoft .NET framework 3.5 4. Run the Configuration Utility Program. In the sidebar to the left make sure Configuration Profiles is selected. In the top left click New. 5. Enter the info like the profile name and identifer which can be anyhting you like. Make sure the boxes Require Passcode on device and Allow Simple Values are checked. Set Autolock to 0. It would be best for you too keep everything else as-is. 6. Click Export in the top left corner of the screen. A message will come up, click ok. Export it to the desktop. 7. Choose an email of your choose and send the file (something.mobile or something like that) to your iPod email as an attachment. 8. Click on the attachment in your email on your iPod touch. Something should come up, click install. It should have you put in a password using the keyboard with alphabet on it. Type in the password you want and press return (or whatever it says in the top right corner of the screen. By default if you put in the passcode in incorrectly twice it will erase all the memory on your iPod. 9. You can now go into settings on your iPod home screen and click default, then Profiles. Make the swipe gesture (pull your finger across the screen from left to right) and click delete to delete the profile. You should still have the alphanumeric passcode you entered with the keyboard from before. If you press the home key then go to setting then general again and click on passcode lock, the erase all data after failed passcode attempts option should be at no. If not just slide it over to no unless you want it that way. You canalso change your passcode using your iPod and it will still let you use alphanumeric digits. Hope this helped. I love it.

Sorry wasn't trying to take credit for something I didn't actually do all by myself.
