iPhone says passcode is incorrect, but I KNOW it's right!
I set a passcode on my iPhone 4S a few hours ago, and it was working and unlocking perfectly fine. Fast forward a few hours, and my phone keeps saying the pass. is incorrect. It got disabled for 15 minutes, and now it says "try again in 3 minutes". I tried connecting it to iTunes and the AutoPlay window pops up along with iTunes, and my phone shows up, but when I click Back Up Now, it says it cannot back up b/c "it is locked with a passcode". It shows all the apps and songs on it, but I can't unlock it! This is so frustrating. What can I do? Oh, and I promise you that this is my phone, I didn't steal it. Help

DFU means Device Firmware Update and it basically wipes things off your iPhone so a new firmware can be installed on it. Restoring will erase the passcode data so you can enter the iPhone again.
Restoring your device is the only option. Fortunately, I think you can use something like CopyTrans or iFunbox to extract photos and other data. On Linux, you can just plug in your iPhone to the system and then extract the DCIM folder which has all the photos.

OH MY GOODNESS. My phone got disabled for 60 minutes, so I charged it during that time. I unplugged it from the charger and turned it off by holding down the home and top button (don't know what it's called) and waited a little. I turned it back on, entered the same password I've been entering the past gazillion times, and it worked! YAYY! Thank you all for your help. I don't know what was wrong with my phone.
