    HELP, getting PO'd. I turned on my Touch this morning and was asked for a passcode. I have never turned passcode on so I'm not sure why this happened. From what I read if you restore to factory settings and sync, you'll reset the passcode. After many attempts it didn't work. At the factory setting I can get into all the default applications. I set the wireless and could get on the internet.
    After I sync (restore) my songs, podcasts and apps I get the passcode screen again and can't do anything.
    Obviously this is my Touch attached to my computer and the ITunes I've been using for 2 years.
    Any suggestions?

    You sure you didn't steal it?

    Did you, infact, steal it?

    when it asks you if you want to restore from a backup, try creating a new one instead of using an old one
    it might be transferring your old settings over

    No offense, you just joined, and this is you're first post. I'm guessing you stole it but I cannot prove anything. And unlike the first post I will be kind enough to help!

    Follow one or two of the many helpful guides, and I hope you did not steal this or I will be very sorry for helping you.

    EDIT: I haz ben NINJA'D!

    I understand your concern. Anything I can do that would prove to you it's mine and not stolen?

    No, unfortunately there is nothing. There has been many threads like this and it turned out they had stolen it. So everyone is wondering why a first time poster and someone who just joined posted a thread about a "Mysterious Passcode". It's very suspicious to be honest.

    Passcode

    Well let's try it this way. Is there something in my restored files that would put a passcode on my touch? I did the DFU (I think that's the right term) and when I sync my apps, songs etc back on is when the passcode comes back. My primary app is a diet log for diabetes. I'm assuming I've lost the data for the last 2 weeks. Plus the other apps I've paid for that at this point are useless.

    And as far as being "new" this is the first problem I've had, therefore reaching out for help were ever I can find it. I'm relunctent to use the Apple "one time incident" for $29 or whatever it is for fear of wasting money.

    Also, it's mysterious because I've never enabled the passcode and yesterday everything was fine and this morning it wants a passcode.

    I reckon you stole it, lol.
    It doesn't just randomly come up like that.

    The chances of that happening are so slim.
    Anyway, just DFU + Restore.

    Did a DFU on touch. Deleted some old movies, songs and podcasts from ITunes. Restored songs only - no passcode. Restored apps individually - no passcode.
    So, eg0tism, there must have been a file turning on the passcode, or at least that's what it seems like.

    BTW, I bought this touch new about a year and a half ago, not stolen - but I really don't care what you think about that.

    Anyway, thanks for all the NON-help.

    Yogii - out
