    My iTouch is locked up in some way. I looked over at it yesterday and it was on some Dow jones webpage. I had not touched it. When I tried to get it out of internet mode and back to the home screen it wouldn't let me log in. It won't accept my passcode. It is like it has been hi-jacked. No dots appear in the passcode spaces. It isn't responding to me. Shutting it down doesn't help. Has anyone had a similar problem that can tell me how to fix it? It won't let me log in at all, so I can't "reset" it. I guess I could do a factory reset, but that would erase any apps I have on there. Please help!

    Looks like your only hope is a restore, write down a list of the apps you have bought (if they aren't on your iTunes) and then restore it. If you buy those apps again, the app store will know that you've already downloaded them and will give them to you for free.
