"Iphone is disabled connect to Itunes"

I've had the Iphone 4 since it came out and haven't been on my old Iphone 3G

I recently found my old 3G and I know I won't be able to make phone calls on it but I wanted to be able to listen to the music on it like an ipod but I forgot my password for the 3G although I know the password I had on for the 3G's SIM.

I connected it to Itunes and can listen to the music on the computer but it's still locked....any ideas how I can unlock it without deleting the music?

Thanks

If it says its disabled then you typed the wrong password too many times.
Plug it to itunes and restore it.
Everything will be deleted from it but you could sync the music back to it thru itunes.

Ya I tried to guess my old password but didn't get it, I know the phones SIM password can I do anything with that? And If I sync the music will it mess up the stuff on my Iphone 4? That's what I'm worried about?

Thanks for the fast response btw

No, the sims password has nothing to do with the iphone passcode.
And if you sync your music and stuff back to your old iphone 3G it will not mess up anything with your iphone 4.

You need to put it in dfu mode and restore it with itunes.
Have the latest itunes version.

Like AJ said, the only way to restore a disable phone is to put it into DFU mode first. Otherwise, Itunes will not let you do it.
