    I found a iphone (black back 8GB) on a beach in Thailand. I spent the next 2 hours trying to find the owner with no luck. I have entered the wrong pass code to many times and now its locked. The screen says iphone is disabled connect to itunes sim locked. Of course when I connect to itunes it wont recognize it.

    I would like to turn this in to an itouch. Is this possible?

    Sorry let me clearify

    When I plug in the iphone, itunes opens and i get

    "iTunes could not connect to the iPhone "My iPhone" because it's locked with a passcode. You must enter your passcode on the iPhone before it can be used with iTunes."

    This is a found phone and i dont know what the passcode is.

    You will have to put it in DFU mode then.
    Follow the first link that I posted above to restore it in DFU mode.
