Upgraded an iphone 4 to IOS 5.0.1 and now the passcode does not work.

The phone was configured with corporate email (exchange) requiring an 8 character pass-code. After the upgrade, late last night I was able to login to the phone. Used it for a few minutes and went to sleep. Woke up this morning & I was not able to login to it with the same passcode.

Contacted apple and they want me to restore the phone.

Has any one had a similar issue?

The phone says its disabled ..and try to again in X number of minutes.

I had the same problem. After the upgrade my phone password was replaced with the password for my Enterprise Email account. I unlocked the phone with my email password and then went into Settings and changed my phone password to what it originally was.
