Try a firmware restore, a guide on how to do that ishere: iPhone Firmare restore. If that doesn't resolve the issue it looks like you need a new logic board which in theory you can replace yourself. Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPhone. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to have somebody else do it for you there are third party iPhone Repair Services.

SOURCE: I forgot my passcode to unlock my iphone

It depends on the severity and the settings you have given the iPhone and whether you have the computer that you synced your iPhone with... Here's the full explanation. I would recommend reading the second paragraph first, but the solution if you really forgot your password is in the first paragraph. 
==If you have the computer you synced your iPhone with==
If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device on the computer that was used to originally sync the iPhone or iPod touch so that you can reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced to the iPhone or iPod touch, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode but your data will not be present. Refer to "Updating and restoring iPhone and iPod touch software."

"If you enter the wrong passcode too many times, you'll see a message that says "iPhone is disabled" and to try again later. If you repeatedly enter the wrong passcode, iPhone or iPod touch will be disabled for longer intervals, before you can try again. After too many unsuccessful attempts, you won't be able to try again until you connect to the computer you normally sync with. Note that starting with iPhone 2.1 software, there is a setting to cause the device to erase itself after 10 consecutive incorrect password attempts. This setting is off by default. It  can be turned on by tapping Settings > General > Passcode Lock after you enter a correct passcode." 
The full article can be found here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1212

==If you don't have the computer you synced your iPhone with==
If you don't have the original computer the iPhone synced with, the only solution is to force your iPod Touch into recovery mode and then restore it. You will lost all the data on the iPod Touch, but after this method is done, everything will work. You can find the steps to solving this problem here:

It seems that you've incorrectly entered the pass code too many times. The screen should tell you how long you have to wait to try again. If you don't recall your passcode then connect your phone to your computer, start iTunes, and choose "restore".

My iPhone incoming calls ring but do not vibrate, but all other notifications vibrate correctly.


Strange. I would try resetting your iPhone. Hold down the home and power buttons until it powers off. It should start up automatically but if not just press the power button. This has worked for me in the past when my iPhone has acted strangely.
Don't worry about a reset or hard reboot. You won't lose any data or settings.

I have iphone model A1241 and im trying to jailbreak that one but as i do the i need to type the passcode but i dont know the passcode that iphone is given to by my cousin


Then call him up and get the code. If it's a screen lock. There's no way to get around that. And most of us tech's think automatically "stolen phone" if someone "loses" their code when most people use their phone multiple times a day.

I have not used my iphone in about a year and i forgot the passcode lock


you need to DFU restore your iPhone. Hope you got a backup, because you're losing the stuff on it. with iPhone plugged in, hold down the sleep wake switch, and the home button for about 10 seconds, until the iPhone turns off. Once the screen goes black, continue holding, count to 8. Release sleep wake switch, continue depressing home button. Wait for iTunes to recognize, and you'll be prompted to restore.

UNLOCK MY PASSCOD ,I HAVE A IPHONE


The passcode is your personal security number, no one else knows that. But if you forgot what it is, chances are, your device will be disabled. However, if yoou want to recover it from being disabled, you need to put it to DFU mode first to bypass the passcode-lock and then continue on the restore.
WARNING: Restoring your device will remove ALL data in it.
To read my instruction on putting your device to DFU mode, click the link below:
