    Hi,
    I own an iphone 3gs,and yesterday i updated from 3.0 to 3.1.2.
    I restored and the synced back from itunes.
    And now my iphone asks for a Passcode (one with letters not the 4 digit one)
    I never set any passwards and i know i can just restore and make a "new iphone"
    but then all my calendar,contacts etc will be lost.

    Haw do i remove it ?
    Haw was it created?
    Any advice will be helpful.

    Please HELP :(

    Thank You.

    did you encrypt your iPhone backup from iTunes? I think this is probably the problem.

    Surely, this data is on your Mac/PC?

    I did not encrypt my backup.
    i checked, i dont have the "v" on my "Encypt iphone backup" so i dont think that is it.

    maybe its some cydia app that encrypted something and now when "restored" i dont have Cydia,is that making any sense?
