    Hi everyone,

    I was hoping someone knew a little bit about how some of these processes will work so I can make a plan on getting the restrictions password taken off my phone.

    Maybe I'm just losing my mind, but the password I literally used 36 hours ago and multiple times before that just keeps saying it's wrong and I've tried 10 different times on the only combinations I would ever use.

    I've tried using the backup extractor to obtain the password but found out iOS 5 doesn't store it in there any longer, so I think I'm facing a total reset.

    My main question is: what is the best way to go about this?

    If I do a backup of the phone, then wipe it out, then do a restore, it's going to come back with the restrictions password on there, right?

    And if that's the case, what's the best way to do it? Can I independently restore my contacts / pictures / voicemails? Or does that end up only happening with a backup?

    Thanks in advance!

    Just bumping... I can't seem to find what is restored if I did a full restore :(
