    Some joke....When you say code, do you mean some form of password?

    Do a DFU restore and be wary about who you loan your iPhone to.

    Well, you have 2 choices....Do a full DFU restore, or persuade the dimwit who thought it would be fun to lock you out of your own phone to give you the password.

    Next time do the occasional backup and use iCloud.

    I went to the bathroom and left my iphone on the desk , didnt think anyone would touch it since the teacher was present.

    OK BUT NOW i am trying to restore my iphone but half way through the process it disconnects from the computer!!!!!

    OMG im so pissed right now

    Half way from the restore it disconnects , goes back to the lock screen where i have to put in the password!

    and itunes shows me the error message , that i cant connect it to itunes because there is a code/password on the iphone which i have to type in order to connect with itunes

    Do a DFU restore and reinstall manually. Your app purchases will be available in the cloud. Hopefully you used iCloud for notes, contacts etc...

    Was it jailbroken? Are you installing iOS 6.1 on it?

    updated to 6.1 yesterday and yes the plan was to jailbreak it because i thought someone will launch an app which can unlock the carrier. But then i got replies that it cant be done with an app.

    So i dont think i have any use for this JB.......

    If i jailbreak it will it still have the same message saying i need to put a sim card to activate it?

    because i need it to listen music and it will take around 1 week for my new sim to arrive in the mail
