Please ignore any offers for remote assist as those are automated and not sent by me personally. Plus, in this case we can not remote into mobile devices anyways so we can chat through these messages instead.

Okay
Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 4 months ago

Usually, apple devices are either locked by a passcode (4 to 6 digits) or an apple id and password ***** both. Therefore, depending on what you have. I can supply you the specific instructions.

If it has not shown either one but it shows disabled, you would need to plug it into a computer running the iTunes app so we can try and update the device but if that fails we would have to restore/erase the phone back to factory settings while it is in recovery mode.

I can get pass the home screen by putting in my 4-digit code. Then it gives me the following prompt:
A password ***** ***** to activate this device because its owner has used find my iphone to link it to their Apple ID. If this is your device, enter the apple id and password ***** used to set up icloud.
Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 4 months ago

OK this is your ipod correct? If so we just need to make sure you know your apple id and password ***** make sure it's correct.

Are you chatting with me on a computer currently?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
it is. I am at my grandmother's house for Easter holiday. She used her email and her phone number so she can help me if she needs to. Do I need to plug my ipod into her computer?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Do you want me to tell you my user ID and passcode right now?
Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 4 months ago

You dont have to plug it into the computer just yet, but when the ipod asks for the apple id and password ***** its not working it sounds like we need to reset the password.

Mac Support Specialist: Jon, Mac Enthusiast replied 4 months ago

I am not allowed to ask for personal information here so if you can do me a favor and go to

go to https://iforgot.apple.com/password/verify/appleid and type in your Apple ID and continue. Apple will then provide you with an option to reset your password ***** by email, security questions, text message, etc.

Then once you have the password ***** you can try and sign into the ipod. If it does not work right away, you can try and restart the ipod and make sure you are connected to wifi.

okay, just tell me what you want me to do because "reset password" is not an option on my ipod screen
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
okay

When I sign into my email, this is the prompt I get:
This Apple ID has been locked for security reasons.
You must unlock your account before signing in.
Go Back Unlock Account
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
you see, it won't even let me get into my email without unlocking the account.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It did not give text as an option. It only gives email and security questions. I used my grandmothers phone number so I could use her phone to retrieve the messages regarding resetting the password, but there is not a texting option. Are you still with me here?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
are you still with me?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
When I tried to go the security questions route, it told me my birthday was incorrect. I entered mm/dd but it did not recognize that either. I get the following prompt after putting in my birthdate:
‎10/15
Your answer does not match the security information on file.

Hey, do you want me to request another expert?

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
