If you know how to put the phone in DFU mode your itunes will see it as in recovery mode and allow it to be restored.
If your planning on unlocking the phone for use without an iphone account, It's super important to restore the phone with firmware from 2.2 5G77 back. Don't restore to 2.2.1
Get the firmware here

For putting in DFU Mode
Plug the usb into the iphone and not into the computer.
1) turn your phone all the was off. (with the red slider)
2) Hold the home button for 5 second and then press and hold the power button for 7 seconds (Holding Both buttons down)
3)let go of the power button and keep holding the home button for an additional 27 second. your screen may go blank. don;t worry
now plug your usb into the computer with iTunes open.
iF it mounts in itunes it will say it's in recovery mode. press the shift key and press restore with you mouse choose the iphone firmware you downloaded from the link and restore.

I believe this solution will help, good luck!

Iphone 5 has been disabled and forgotten passcode


iPhone Is Disabled After a series of more failed attempts, your iPhone displays the same "iPhone is Disabled" message, but with an added "Connect to iTunes" message. At this point, your iPhone shuts down completely and you cannot make any more attempts to enter the passcode. In order to restore the device at this stage, you need to connect it to a computer with iTunes installed. Ideally, connect it to a computer that you've used before for syncing your iPhone.

I forgot my iphone passcode


Try the passwords you used frequently. And be careful about the character capitalization. Or you can try the Apple ID password, iTunes password. If all do not work for you, you may need to find other methods to solve this problem. For example, access your iPhone into DFU mode or Set it to factory settings (but this will erase all the iPhone data, so make sure to backup your important iPhone data before going on). Here is a good article which gives a specific solution to get your iPhone passcode back.

Ipod disabled and must connect to itunes , must enter passcode but ipod wont let me enter a passcode . how ?


Too many wrong tries of entering the wrong passcode can lead to a disabled iPhone. You have to restore the phone in iTunes to be able to use it again. To be able for iTunes to detect your iPhone in recovery mode and enable you to restore, you have to enter dfu mode. Just press the home button and sleep button simultaneously for 10 seconds then release the sleep button but still hold the home button until iTunes can detect the phone. Then press restore and let it do the rest of the process.

I got an iphone from a friend and i tried to put the password in too many times and it was the wronge one now its saying iphone disabled. is there anything i can do to fix it


This is a security feature of the iOS. You can either ask your friend for the security passcode or restore the iPhone in iTunes. The problem is documented here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1212 Remember that restoring the iPhone will erase all of its settings and contents. Good luck!

Go into DFU or recovery mode, then try restoring it. Be warned that you will lose all of your data and may lose the ability to unlock if you do so.

My iPhone is disabled for 4,566,757 mintues, HELP!


The only way is to reflash a new firmware and wipe the code as well as the phone clean.
To do this start itunes on your computer. Then connect your phone to the computer. Once itunes detected your phone hold the POWER and the HOME buttons down at the same time for about 10 seconds. Once the phone flashes off, let go of the POWER button and keep holding the HOME button until you see a message on the itunes telling you that your phone is detected and needs to be RESTORED. Follow directions and it will do its job. I appreciate your positive vote. Thanks
