Yes, if you restore it will wipe the phone clean.
Next time be more carefull so you dont get locked out again.
If you just bought it then you shouldn't lose much when you restore.
How did you set the passcode if it hasn't been connected to the computer yet? Wouldn't the phone be stuck on the "connect to iTunes" screen?
And you should install the Trust.app... wait, that was a different thread. Restore!
Yes it would. Hmmmm..... Something sounds fishy here....
Maybe he brought it used? Maybe a friend setup the activation for him? Maybe he brought it new via apple store or AT&T watever and the sales activate it for him?
Or maybe he stole it
haha. yea, i did a lot of searching before I actually posted. you guys are funny about the pass code/stealing thing here. I bought it from the ATT store, it was ready to go right from there, been using it for 2 days.
As a previous victim of iphone theft can I just say that I get more pissed at apple/ATT for offering nothing to help deter iphone theft. Back when was with verizon if someone stole your phone, you just flagged your SN and if any one tried to activate it, it would be reported. When I went in to report my iphone...they were like "yeah, nothing we can do for you...but we got this great brand new iphone 3Gs right here your gonna love" I cant believe that a phone that can tell me damn near anything and everything about where I am at all times, is uselss when I need to find it when its stolen. What about apple making a phone that almost begs to be stolen. You can steal it, and have no worries of being flagged. Its a win/win for apple and ATT. You lose your phone and they just get a new customer, and you got to rebuy the same damn phone. Its retarded.
but besides all that, yeah...I was just curious if there was any way around the pass code besides a wipe. Im sure there is. just got to do some hard looking.
Yes, you will lose less value, because I just bought new.
I wasn't implying theft, I was honestly asking a question. From your post it sounded like it had never been connected to a computer, but it has, it just hasn't been connected to your computer. I get it now.
There's no way to get into a password protected iPhone without the password.
You can either restore and lose everything or try 9999 combinations until you get the right pin code.
10 000 combinations.
that's because verizon uses a different type of network. they don't block your SN, they block the ESN from being used on the network again.
AT&T could block an IMEI, but i don't think they do.
