    Wipe the phone and recover from a previous backup.

    Please don't reproduce with her. Thanks for looking out for the rest of humanity.

    Oh I'm dead serious, there's a 25% chance they could inherit all of her brain power.

    If I recall correctly, simply connecting to the computer it's synced to will allow you to sort this.

    to the OP ignore all the losers who think snide remarks are funny (don't even begin to say you have never forgot something in your entire existence because that is a bold faced lie and you know it).

    I think the only thing she can do is restore, from a back up when you've lost a password like that it is gone for good.

    or maybe try to think of signifcant numbers or words/number combinations that she may have used.

    How many times did the janitor have to come and unlock her locker in high school? It's apparent ATM cards would be bad for her. IJS

    Plug it into iTunes and wait it appears in the devices list and in the summary tab click on Restore. It should download the latest IPSW. Be sure to back up the device first.

    How do you enter in a 4 digit code TWICE and then forget it. I'm just curious.

    Plug it into iTunes, in the Summary tab there is a button labeled 'Restore'

    Click that and it will tell you that you will lose all your data, etc.; click okay and it will restore. So if you didn't already, I would at least sync contacts, mail, etc. with iCloud, if you need those backed up (since if you backup in iTunes it will store the passcode you don't know as well).

    If you backed up your phone previously (obviously choose a backup without a passcode), you will be given an option to restore from it after the wipe is completed.

    Good luck.

    Now you're just being unnecessarily rude and obnoxious. ;)

    My grandmother forgets stuff all time, does that make her stupid? Don't be so ignorant.

    I apologize, I'm sure she will be able to follow them to a "T".

    OP, she will have to do a DFU restore by plugging it to itunes if she cant remember the passcode she setup.
