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.

Below trick is working with ipod you can try it with iphone and at the end of the post i have given detail procedure for how to restore iphone without deleting data.

First try to recover your password for that connect your iphone to computer via usb cable.
Now ipod iphone is recognize by computer and find the folder named ipod. Now browse ipod folder and open ipod_control folder , inside that folder there is ipod _unlock file. Try to edit that file with some software to recover your password inside that file otherwise. Delete or rename that file and power of your ipod and restart it. There is other way to recover password but when I put such answer my answer marked as spam and deleted and some senior member using that answer method for their answer and get reputation.
Ipod got disabled when you have entered wrong passcode many times. And to unlock this passcode either recover your passcode from ipod or restore your ipod via ituens.
For that connect ipod to computer and if ipod is recognized by computer then open itunes click on device tab then summary tab on right side pane you will find restore ipod.Click on restore ipod and ipod will be restored but this will erase all data on ipod.
If you don't want to delete data then there is option to restore ipod from backup. So restore ipod from recent backup. For that open itunes - click on devices and right click on ipod there you will find option restore from backup.
If none of above method can solve your problem then enter into dfu or recovery mode. For that connect your ipod via usb cable to computer and thenPower off your ipod, now press and hold power button and home button for 15 seconds, now release power buttonbut keep holding home button now itunes will detect ipod in recovery mode now restore your ipod.

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."
