My iPhone 6 is dsabled. How do I get my phone back


Hello Jabob. If your iPhone 6 is disabled, the only way to unlock it is to completely erase and reset it. If you have a backup, you'll be able to restore it, otherwise you'll lose all of your data. There is no way to unlock a disabled iPhone unless you use the correct passcode or you erase it. And the following guidance will show you how to unlock a disabled iPhone with iTunes.

Step 1. Connect your iPhone to the computer with via a USB cable that your iPhone has trusted.
Step 2. Launch iTunes. If you've synced your iPhone with iTunes, then no "enter password" is required.
Step 3. iTunes will automatically sync your iPhone and create a backup file. If it doesn't, you should sync your iTunes and create a backup file manually by clicking "Back up Now" in the Summary window.
Step 4. In the Summary window, you can see the option "Restore iPhone". Click it to reset your iPhone. Once the reset process is complete, you'll be taken through the iPod's initial setup process.
Step 5. Select "Restore from iTunes backup" during the setup process. This will load the backup that you created so that all of your data is restored.

just got iphone back it says its diabled but for 23,685,670 minutes?


How to fix it if your iPhone is disabled?
If your iPhone is disabled and has to be connected to iTunes, you can connect it to an authorized computer, and the Enter Passcode window will show again. If you insert the right passcode this time, your iPhone will be all right again.
If you forget the passcode completely, I'm afraid that the only way to make it back to work is to reinstall.


Note, that the iPhone will erase itself after ten incorrect password attempts in a row. You can turn this off under Settings > General > Passcode Lock.
6 attempts: 1 minute
7 attempts: 5 minutes
8 attempts: 15 minutes
9 attempts: 1 hour
10 attempts: Erase data. If that option is off it will require connecting to iTunes to unlock.

Although a passcode limits your iPhone to authorized use only, protecting your vital personal information, if you forget it, you can't use your phone until you enter the correct code or revert your phone to the default factory status.
Apple provides ways to resolve a forgotten passcode problem and improve the iPhone's security.

Wrong Passcode

When you enable iPhone passcode security, the phone requires you to enter the code to display the home screen.
By default, when this protection feature is enabled, you'll be prompted to enter the passcode to turn on or restart the iPhone, wake it or unlock the screen.
When you enter the wrong passcode, the "Wrong Passcode try again" message appears onscreen.
If you enter the incorrect code too many times, the iPhone will lock automatically and display the "iPhone is disabled, try again in 1 minute" message.
This disabling security feature is designed to protect it from unauthorized tampering.
If you keep entering the incorrect code, the iPhone will be disabled for a longer time.

Restoring iPhone
If you don't remember your passcode, unfortunately, there is no way to retrieve it.
Apple says that the only way to solve passcode problems is to restore the iPhone with iTunes.
Before restoring the phone, downloading and installing the latest version of iTunes will improve connection and decrease the chances of errors.
Unfortunately, restoring the iPhone erases saved content and clears custom settings, so create a backup copy of your files with iTunes before proceeding.
From there, you can restore your iPhone by clicking the "Restore" button on the device's "Summary" tab in iTunes.
When the process completes, you can change the passcode settings.



Changing Passcode Settings
iPhone allows you to not only create a new passcode, but specify the amount of time it should take before the screen locks after inactivity.
You can also specify whether you want to use a simple four-digit passcode or a longer one that can include letters and numbers.
Tapping the "Settings" icon on the home screen will bring up the phone's settings.
From there, tapping "General" and then tapping "Passcode Lock" will bring up the "Passcode Lock" customization screen.
Select the settings you want to use to protect your iPhone. The changes will take effect immediately or when the iPhone turns off.

Tips

After restoring your iPhone, create a passcode you'll remember easily.
While creating a longer passcode can increase the security on your phone, you can forget it easily if you don't write it down and store it in a safe place.
gmail password reset
Open the Web browser on your phone and navigate to gmail.com.
Tap "Can't access your account" located under the "Sign in" button.
Select "I forgot my password" and then click "Reset your password here."
Type your email into the "Email" text box and then type the random captcha into the captcha text box.
An email with your new Gmail password will be sent to your alternate Gmail address.
Follow the directions in the email to reset your password.
Type the new Gmail password into the loin screen on your Droid to unlock the account.
