    okay seriously, i feel SOOOO dumb.
    i locked myself out of my iphone because i forgot my password
    now the passcode came back to me (i think)
    my phone says to connect to itunes.
    but it wont let me go on itunes and restore it!

    there is a pop-up and it says:
    iTunes cannot conect to the iPhone "Dalena [[omg wtf!!]]"
    because it is locked with the passcode.
    You must enter the passcode on the iPhone
    before it can be used with iTunes.
    [[dont believe me ill send proof"

    so wat can i do?
    pleasee help!

    ive tried like EVERYTHING!
    pressing both buttons at thee same time fer like 73984932sec.
    but, nothing happened
    can someone please help me?​

    I thought it was a poem at first...

    So I'll do one:

    We will not help you.
    For all that we know, it's theft.
    Nice try, anyway.

    Nice haiku, don't you think?

    we dont want to help you for many reasons well
    1. how do you forget a passcode that you use at least every hour on a daily basis?
    2. You are new here and asking for help?
    3. To forget a password you either have to drink heavily and use drugs or bluntly stupid either way use google before searching on forums. Bash me all you want but i got my iphone stolen and the bastards who steal arent worthy of being helped.

    when you forget your passcode few times it locks it for like 5 minutes or so then it lets you put the password again....

    so... you probably stole it. lol

    I hope you didnt have the "erase data" option set up after you tried your password 10 times. :eek:

    I too find this strange. I use a passcode which hounds me regularly when using the phone but when I connect it to itunes it goes right in and syncs. Perhaps I saved it to my keychain but I sure don't remember it ever asking. Of course that screenshot looks like Windows so perhaps it behaves differently.

    Cheers,

    3. When using the ipod function on your phone how do you change a song from
    the lock screen?

    1. takes you to favorites

    2. you go to contacts and click the favorite button than click the plus and then add watever contact you want and then click the number

    3. double click the home button.
    that bar at the top pops up
    and you can go back song pause forward song
    and adjust volume.

    legit enough for you?:)

    Yes. :cool:
    Do a DFU restore. Power the phone off. Hold down the sleep wake and home button for 10 seconds and release the sleep wake button and continue to hold the home button for 10 more seconds. Then release the home button. Then restore it.

    Good deal. Glad i could help. The reason others were hesitant is probably because we have seen excuses before why others couldnt unlock and forgot their passcode but i figured if you could answer those question that only someone who has an iphone would know then i would help. Good to hear your back up and running.

    unless of course hes so obsessed with the iphone he reads about it a ton and goes to apple and ATT stores and plays with them for hours, knows everything about it but couldn't afford one so he stole someone elses. Therefore he'd know the answers to those questions anyway...ha ;)
