    So today I lost my 4G ipod touch in a bathroom, and to be honest I don't really care all for the iPod itself since I got it from someone else and the screen was broken and falling apart anyways. What really concerns me is my information that was on it.

    Naturally, I quickly changed all my passwords for everything and I went on iCloud to remotely erase it but it's still "Pending" telling me "This iPod will be erased when it connects to the Internet." I'm thinking that whoever took the iPod may have already restored the iPod, so would that mean that everything is wiped out anyway? Should I worry about the person who took it getting access to my accounts and stuff?

    **BTW on my brother's iPod Touch I sent a message to myself via iMessage and message won't deliver, I wonder if that's a clue towards anything?

    Without a passcode, they would have access to your information, I would hope they were able to restore it instead.

    "Find my iPod" doesn't really work, does it... Well sometimes I use it to make the darn thing beep when I've lost it around the house, but otherwise, the whole needing to connect to WiFi makes it essentially useless if lost or stolen.


    One thing I was thinking about is maybe go to any random starbucks and connect there, so if it's ever again near any other random starbucks it should connect automatically and them maybe give out a blip. I can't remember if starbucks still has one of those obnoxious logon screens that needs to be clicked on before it will transmit any data though.

    On a 4g iPod no it won't do much cause it can't get iOS 7. But if you have a 5th gen touch and iOS 7 and you activate iCloud lock from what I understand the iPod will be useless and fetch less money on the secondary market if iCloud lock is on.

    If you had Find my iPhone/Pod enabled, your Apple ID and password should have been required before a restore. They may have just turned it off.
