I'm Awake At 5am On iDay, The Launch Of The iPhone

I’m going to go get in line at my local AT&T store to wait for an iPhone. Ok, so not really. I’m awake because of a combination of needing some pain pills for the dental work I had done yesterday morning and my sprinkler system woke me up as well.

I have decided to get my hands on an iPhone tomorrow though. I won’t be crashing all night like these people. I think they’re a little crazy, but it’s exciting at the same time. I hope I can get in line here in Saginaw no earlier than 5pm and easily be able to get one. I’ll update my status with my Twitter account (which I hope to have integrated into this site sometime in the near future, especially if I get an iPhone).

I’m just so sick of my Razr and can’t wait for the iPhone. I know there are some drawbacks, but a lot of the things people are talking about can easily be added or fixed with updates from Apple right through iTunes. In addition to having an all in one device, I’m very excited to have the Internet on a phone which is actually useful.

Unlock iPod Screen Lock If You Forget The 4 Digit Combination

I’ve have several a lot of people post questions on other posts here at MDV asking how to unlock the iPod Screen Lock function if you forget the 4 digit combination/pass code, so I figured I would write up a short tutorial here to direct people to.

There are basically three ways to unlock the Screen Lock on your iPod:

  1. The most obvious and will not work for most people (or else you wouldn’t be visiting this web site). Simply enter the 4 digit combination/pass code at Extras > Screen Lock.
  2. Connect your iPod to the first computer it was synced with or the computer set as the primary one in iTunes. Open the iTunes application, then disconnect your iPod from the computer, and it should no longer be locked.
  3. Use this final way only if the first two options do not work for you because it is a destructive process.

    Everything on your iPod will be erased.

    This should not be a problem if you have all of your songs, videos, and other media stored in iTunes and you can synchronize once again after getting the iPod unlocked. Besides, if you don’t unlock your iPod it’s useless right? Learn how to Restore your iPod using the instructions from Apple’s site.

If your iPod is simply frozen, follow my instructions for an iPod Lockup Reset.
