    DFU restore seems like the only way to fix that that I can think of.

    Why doesn't Touch ID log you in?

    It can't be that easy, can it? Doesn't iOS 7 have new security measures in place to keep someone with a stolen phone from doing something like this? Or do those security measures only go into effect if you mark the device as lost or stolen in Find my iPhone?

    And to the OP: I'm not suggesting that you have a stolen phone.

    Ah...I think I might see how it works. Even if you activated lost mode through Find My iPhone, all you should need is your Apple ID and password to reactivate the device. And then, as long as you don't restore from a backup that had the forgotten passcode, you should be ok.

    Yes. When you DFU restore and first boot the phone up, iTunes will ask you to log in with the previous iCloud account to activate the phone.
