How do you restore if your iphone won't let you enter your pin?

Ok guys, my wife rebooted her phone this morning and when it started up a notification was shown that said

"Restore needed"
iPhone cannot make or recieve calls. Restore from iTunes. www.apple.com/support

Well that's fine, phones mess up right? Well I plug the phone in to restore with iTunes and get an error in iTunes saying that the phone is locked with a passcode so info cannot be accessed. We the problem is that the iPhone only displays the error message with no option to enter the passcode to unlock it.

What should I do now?

Thanks for your help.

Nevermind. I was able to put the phone if DFU mode. That allowed me to restore it. The wife is happy again! And she won't be using a passcode anymore....lol
