    I bought an iPod 5 Touch my son for his birthday last weekend. He's having a problem with it in that most of the time (not all, but most) when he tries to open his Cut the Rope and Angry Birds games, it will automatically open the Game Center login as well. The biggest problem with this is that the Game Center login just freezes at that point and never actually logs him in, therefore the game never starts. I tried to open Game Center itself and check his settings and login info but it freezes when I try to open that as well. That little circle will keep spinning and it will say, "Logging In," but it never actually does, so it just stays on that screen. I've tried hitting the Sign Out button on the upper left-hand corner as well as the Cancel button on the upper right side, but neither will let me push them.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to what we can try to get this working? He paid for some of these apps and can't even use them.

    Thanks in advance!

    I would do a factory reset on the iPod. Two ways to do this either on the iPod it self or when it it connected to the computer using the USB cable and iTunes. Once you have down that and you are at a fresh start you can try to log back into your iTunes account on the iPod and re download the said apps. Shouldn't ask you to pay again if you use the same account that was used before to buy the apps. Also if he isn't in wife you might be having trouble with Game Center all you need to do is taped cancel win the top left corner if you are not connected to wifi and Game Center pops up. That should work. If you have any questions on how to factory rest the iPod you can always look it up on YouTube.
