    good moring

    i was really hoping my first post would not be an issue but it looks like i was wrong, yesterday i received my new ipod touch 2nd gen which was already at version 2.2.

    after finally figuring our itunes and adding my music i decided to install some application from the itunes store. i switched the ipod off last night and now none of the new applications will open and some of my pre-installed applications such as Safari are missing from the home screen.

    is my only option to instigate a master re-set or is there something i should do.

    any help or advise for an ipod noob would be very much appreciated.

    Switch it on and off, then check your prefrences as you might have the restrictions on (Prefrences/general/restrictions). If thats fine then restoring the firmware is the best option. If that doesn't work call Apple. A restore will probrably work

    Back up first and all your apps/music/photos are on itunes etc already

    Hope this helps

    maybe the ipodbwas made when 2.2 was out and maybe apple just goes for the update and ships them after update.

    it's possible that mine came in 2.1 then but i never noticed any updates take place when i connected to itunes

    but as i was new to ipods it could have happened an i never paid attention
