I have an apple iphone 3gs bt have forgotten my pin cde how can i get back onto it

Plug it into your computer, allow it to sync, and then Restore it. It'll update the firmware on your phone though so if it's jailbroken be aware that it'll be un-jailbroken afterwards. There is a jailbreak for the 4.3.3 firmware though so you can just re-jailbreak it.
