need to put back to factory set...it seems to have a password that is stopping this

That password is the iTunes Apple ID making sure that you are the owner of the phone. When you get an iPhone you set up an iTunes account with credit card details so you can buy apps and music.

Also so going back to Factory Settings is done from ITunes program on the computer.

Have new password. Why can't I log in?

Log in to iTunes and App Store?

You need an email address and a password. These are set up in Settings - iTunes and App Stores. You also need to set up a valid credit card to access.

Passwords are case sensitive. 'emerald2015' is not the same as 'EmeralD2015'.
