My iPod was stolen, is there any way it can get tracked down?

Hey, how are you guys doing?
I bought a 4g iPod touch 32g a while ago, and I want to know if it can be tracked down. I didn't have iCloud put on it & I used an app on another iPod to track it down using the apple account and no results were shown as if the iPod had been reset. Please let me know if it can be tracked down.

Change your iTunes (Apple ID) password along with any other password that was stored in the iPod.  If any passwords are associated with credit cards, contact the CC company and get your card replaced (with a new number).  If any passwords are associated with a bank or any other savings institution, contact them also and discuss approprate action with them.
The "Find my..." function is pretty much useless if the device is in the hands of a thief.  All that is necessary is for the thief to connect to any computer with iTunes and "Restore as new."
The only real protection you have is with the personal information on the device rather than the physical device itself.  This requires action before the device is lost/stolen.  If the device has significant personal information, it should have a strong 8-digit (or longer) password AND be configured for automatic wipe in the event of ten consecutive incorrect password entries.

    i bought my pro two years ago, but it was stolen yesterday, is there any way I can find it ?  please help. it hais important documents and pounds of memeries.

    If you had iCloud enabled...
    Go to www.icloud.com >   iCloud
    then login then click Find My iPhone  (works for finding your Mac also)
    This will only work if the Mac is turned on and Find My Mac was enabled in System Preferences > iCloud
    If you did not sign up for iCloud before the Mac was stolen >  Reporting a lost or stolen Apple product
    A stolen or lost device cannot be located from the serial number.

  • Lost my ipod touch and is there any way i can get all my info deleted from it?

    lost my ipod is there any way i can track it down or delete the info thats in it please reply

    Only if you installed "Find my iPhone" prior to the loss, you could be able to log into iCloud and track or remotely erase your device. If you did not install and activate your account in iCloud, there is no other way to do that.

    What To Do If Your iDevice or Computer Is Lost Or Stolen
    iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad
    If you activated Find My Phone before it was lost or stolen, you can track it only if Wi-Fi is enabled on the device. What you cannot do is track your device using a serial number or other identifying number. You cannot expect Apple or anyone else to find your device for you. You cannot recover your loss unless you insure your device for such loss. It is not covered by your warranty.
    If your iPhone, iPod, iPod Touch, or iPad is lost or stolen what do you do? There are things you should have done in advance - before you lost it or it was stolen - and some things to do after the fact. Here are some suggestions:

    my laptop and ipod were stolen, is there any way to recover my purchased songs?

    Was your backuip copy of your computer stolen as well?
    If not, then use it to put everything back.
    If it was stolen as well, then you can try contacting itunes support and asking for and exception to the one download.  They are under no obligation to allow this, but it is worth a shot.
    Sorry about your computer.

  • Hello, my ipod was stolen, is there any options to find it by wi-fi??

    hello, my ipod was stolen, is there any options to find it by wi-fi??

    Find my iPod Touch (iOS 4.2.1 and greater) - http://images.apple.com/ipodtouch/built-in-apps/find-my-ipodtouch.html - has to be enabled before device is lost.  It also requires the device be on and connected to registered WiFi network, and not having been restored by the finder (if it was really stolen then the thief has probably restored it).  If you have activated the "Find My" feature, go to https://www.icloud.com or use the Find My iPhone app - http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/find-my-iphone/id376101648?mt=8
    Setting up iCloud (requires iOS5) - http://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/ios.html - includes activating the 'Find My' feature.
    Frankly in the case of a stolen iPod this almost never works. Report it to the police.  Change passwords on accounts. Go shopping for a new iPod.

  • My itunes was deleted off of my computer. Is there any way I can get my music from my Ipod back onto my computer?

    Most of my music is from CDs that I don't have anymore. I've got over a thousand songs and most of them were deleted when my computer crashed. Is there any way I can get my music from my ipod back onto my computer? Any sort of program you can buy? Thanks for any help, I really appreciate it!

  • HT1212 for an iTouch 4 my young daughter thinks she remembers her password now but we have already exceeded the attempts and it says "iPod is disabled" connect to iTunes.  Is there any way we can get the device to allow another attempt?

    My 7 year old daughter has an iPod Touch 4 and she used the wrong password too many times.  She thinks she remembers her password now but we have already exceeded the attempts and it says "iPod is disabled" connect to iTunes.  Is there any way we can get the device to allow another attempt?  We are traveling this week so don't have access to the serial number or the computer that was used to originally set up her iTouch.  I don't even know what operating system it's on and can only see the home screen.

    Restoring the iPod will do nothing to his iPhone.
    When you restore it wipes the iPod clean no matter what computer you use.
    The only plus to doing it form your home computer is if you have a backup stored there, then you can restore from the backup once it's done wiping.
    If you are away form your home computer, go ahead and use the computer you have to restore it, then when you get home, you can restore form any backup you may find. You can use this to help you do that when you get there: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1766

  • I have lost my ipod touch 2g. is there any way i can find it PLZ HELP

    - If you previously turned on FIndMyiPod on the iPod via a paid subscripton to the now discontinued MobileMe ins in Settings>Maile>MobileMe and wifi is on and connected go to iCloud: Find My iPhone, sign in and go to FIndMyiPhone. If the iPod has been restored it will never show up.
    - You can also wipe/erase the iPod and have the iPod play a sound via iCloud.
    - If not shown, then you will have to use the old fashioned way, like if you lost a wallet or purse.
    - Change the passwords for all accounts used on the iPod and report to police
    - There is no way to prevent someone from restoring the iPod (it erases it) using it.
    - Apple will do nothing without a court order

  • I restored my ipod 4th generation but i lost all of my photos. I used iCloud but i have never synced with itunes. Is there any way I can get my pictures back?

    On the settings I went to iCloud then went to storage and backup and it saus total storage 5.0 gb and avaible storage is 2.7 gb but all of my photos arent there. Then when I click manage storage it says camera roll 2.0 gb is there any way i can get my photos back? please help

    If you use the same iCloud ID and before you will get your contact, calendar and notes and other iCloud things back. If your previously has PhotoStream one you will also get back the last 30 days of photos.
    It appears you do not use the same iCloud ID.
    What do you see for Contacts, Calendar and Notes when you go to icloud.com and sing in with the same ID. You need a computer browser.

    If your phone is offline, the ONLY way to find it is to look for it the old fashioned way.  Your phone CANNOT be located electronically if it's offline.

  • I was syncing everything to itunes and I tried to do my contacts, not knowing quite how. I ended up erasing all of them from my phone without any of them syncing to my computer or itunes. Is there any way I can get them back? I really need them all.

    There are lots of ideas floating on the web for this particular issue - all of which I tried. I had the same problem and it turned out to be my USB cable. I thought the cable was fine as it would charge my phone and play but the data transfer pin was bent. I replaced the cable and it fixed the problem. Worth a shot as it is an easy fix!
