    I accidentally put in a password which I can't remember for my restrictions. I was playing around with it, and I enabled camera restriction. I have no idea what the password was. Is there anyway to reset the password? I've reset the whole phone but when I update the phone with the back up, it still won't let me use my camera.
    (I know i KNOw it sounds like a kid trying to get passed their parents password, but i was retarded and I put in a password which i don't remember) Could some one help me out?

    You actually may have to do this the hard way. Settings>general>reset> erase all settings and content.

    This will write zeros to the flash memory and wipe it clean. Restore doesn't do that, and leaves a lot of system files in place.

    The bad news is that the process takes 2 hours, THEN you can start restoring it afterwards.
