Unlocking a locked iTouch without restoring

I found an iTouch on my lawn (and it still works) and would like to return it to the owner, if I could only unlock it to possibly retrieve personal info on the owner. Otherwise I've got myself a free Itouch - any help would be appreciated by myself and the owner.

Kharma is real!!!

You have to restore it. Enjoy your new iPod.

I'm assuming it found my lawn after being tossed out the window of a passing car by who ever stole it, and they couldn't unlock it - obviously not a tech savvy thief. Plus I live in the Los Angeles area and it is not likely that the person lives in my immediate area or would even see a sign I post outside my house. I guess if the device had been enabled for disk use I could delete the lock file, but it does not show up as a drive on the PC.

Actually, it was found by my postal carrier, who always walks across the lawn instead of using the walkway(he's worn a path) so hes howed it to me but never touched it himself.

Is there any other methods of getting into this thing?? i.e. like dos level commands or something?
