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!

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.

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.

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.

Unlock code from ipod


It depends on the severity and the settings you have given the iPod... 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 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."
