    I don't expect to get it back....

    Now, anything that I should do?

    My iPod Touch is passcode locked but I didn't set it to the 10-trial-erase mode.

    Noing you can do. You lost it and now have to pay the consequences of not being more careful with your processions.

    Don't leave your stuff laying around for someone to steal.

    I guess so.

    But, all my personal information and data are gone as well? As long as that's the case, I'm not too worried.

    There's not really much you can do... What type of answers were you looking to get?

    I'm interested to know if all my data are wiped clean before/when someone disables or hacks the passcode lock.

    For the founder to sync and download 4.0 they'll have to use iTunes (which is of course not your account unless your mom stole it). Doing so will cause the ipod to erase all mail accounts and personal information. The only way this info is retained is through a restore process from an exisiting backup which of course the founder does not have.

    Just let this be a life lesson for you.

    If your a minor and I was your parent I think I'd think twice before I buy you an iPod again.

    Processions are annoying and useless.

    I don't see the relevance between your comment and theirs. Psst, take a look at the spelling ;)

    No. Only if the 10-code limit is set on, otherwise all your info is vulnerable. If you have MobileMe's Find my iPhone setup, you could try it. But it doesn't work that well with iPod Touches, in fact it doesn't work at all with mine.

    With MobileMe's Find My iPhone you can Remote Wipe. Another way to absolutely protect your data? It's foolproof, keep track of your s***?

    Remember this incident and include it on your resume if you ever decide to apply for a job at Apple as a software engineer :D
