I put in wrong code and now it says disabled connect to iTunes but I set the phone up with wifi so how do I get in my iPhone?


Your iPhone is currently on disabled mode after entering wrong combination of password. There are several ways to gain back the access to your iPhone:

First Method: iTunes
1. Using your computer, open iTunes where you have recently backed up your iPhone.
2. Connect your iPhone. Once your iPhone is detected, a notification will appear to enter your passcode. Note: If the lockscreen doesn't show, proceed to next method.

Second Method: Update

1. While your iPhone connected to iTunes, powered on. Hold down the Power key + Home button simultaneously until the screen off, keep on pressing the Home button then release the Power key until iTunes detected that your iPhone is on Recovery Mode. Note: An iTunes logo will appear on the iPhone when Recovery mode is enabled.
2. On iTunes, click on Update iPhone. It may take a while to download the software, so leave it for a while connected until the installation complete.
3. Once updated, try unlocking your iPhone. Note: If you still can't unlock your iPhone proceed to next method.

Third Method: Restore (last option)
1. If method 1 and 2 fails to unlock your iPhone. Then try to restore your iPhone into its factory default and restore your backup after.
2. Go to recovery mode. See method 2 step 1 process to enable recovery mode.
3. Then choose Restore iPhone. Note: Restoring your iPhone will delete and remove all of your data including apps, music, photos, messages, contacts, notes, etc.
4. It may take a while to download and install the software, so leave your device connected until the process complete.
5. After your iPhone has been restored, choose restore from a backup or iCloud, then wait until your iPhone successfully synced your old data.
6. Try unlocking your iPhone.

Hello, My Iphone is completely dead. The battery went down and I was about 2 months without using it. Now I'm trying to unlock it but the Itunes doesn't recognize it. The screen is black with no battery....


First, plug the iphone into the wall with your usb cable and power adaptor. Then hold down the sleep/wake button (button on top left) and the home button (bottom middle button). Keep holding those two buttons until you see the Apple logo. This should turn it back on and then charge it. If not, Genius Bar.

Iphone screen frozen, also phone not showing up in itunes...


iPhone may exhibit a problem where it does not respond to any button, switch, or touchscreen input.
To turn it off, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears.
Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPhone.
To turn iPhone on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
If the iPhone remains unresponsive after trying the above steps or if it is in a different state, such as showing a persistent Apple logo on the display, try resetting the device:

Before following the steps you need to take a backup of your iphone

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds.

When you connect your iPhone to your computer, an iPhone icon should appear in iTunes in the left column under Devices. But if it doesn't, this troubleshooting assistant can help.

1. Make sure your computer has the following:


and one of the following operating systems:
  • Mac OS X version 10.4.11 or later
  • Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 2 or later
  • Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate Edition
If your computer does not meet these requirements, you will need to upgrade your computer before using iPhone.

2. If iPhone is very low on power or if the battery is fully depleted, it can take up to 10 minutes to appear in iTunes.

3. Connect iPhone to a USB port that is built into the computer instead of the keyboard or an external USB hub.
If iPhone still doesn't appear in iTunes, try a different USB port.

4. Restart the iphone:
To restart iPhone, first turn iPhone off by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button until a red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider and iPhone will turn off after a few moments.
Next, turn iPhone on by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

If iPhone not responding? To reset iPhone, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

5. If you face the same issue reinstall the latest version of itunes

If this does not resolve the issue, try completely uninstalling iTunes and then reinstalling the latest version of iTunes.

Even after following the steps if you face the same issue, then it must be some third-party software (such as security software, anti-virus software, and webcam drivers) may prevent iTunes from recognizing your iPhone. You may have to update your software, adjust software settings, or temporarily disable the software.

My iphone wont turn on. I tried holding the home and power button at the same time and the apple sign comes up but turns off in 10 seconds..HELP!!!!!


I just got done repairing one today with this same problem. You will need to restore the software. To do this we need to put the phone in recovery mode. With the phone powered off, press and hold the home button while connecting the usb cable to the computer. Continue holding it and you should get a image of itunes logo and a usb cable.Once you see the image release the home key. After that just open itunes. It will tell you that you need to restore. Just follow the on screen instructions and it should have you back up and running.

3GS only allows emergency calls


you will need to do a forced restore on iphone to resovle the iphone passcode lost problem. but when you do a forced restore on iphone, you will wipe all content from the iphone. To do a forced restore hold the HOME button, then connect to the USB cable and continue holding for a LONG time (a minute or more). Once iTunes responds release the button and your iphone will be restored.
or you can try to plug it into iTunes with it at the unlock screen. Somewhere it should say “Unlock your iPhone” or something like that in iTunes. Click it. Otherwise do a restore by going to the screen where it shows how much memory you have used up in iTunes and click “Restore”. Restore it as a new device (not from back up) in iTunes. After that, you can just sync your media and apps back onto it.

Tryed reseting iphone now phone stop working seeing USB and itune


Try blowing at the bottom of the phone and plugging it in an out several times.
If recovery mode is not working, make sure it is plugged in.
Hold down the Power and Home buttons for roughly 7 seconds until you see the screen go out.
Wait several seconds to make sure that it doesn't power back on.
Once you have the phone off, hold down the home and power button for 10 seconds before letting go of the power button.
There should be nothing on the screen and it should appear as though it is off.
It may take several tries to do this correctly.

Iphone doesnt detect in Itunes and Usb wall charger doesnt work.


Based on your message it looks like Itunes reupdated the firmware of your Iphone back to the original factory firmware hence it is back to the Locked firmware. When you hit restore in Itunes it will check the Apple website for the correct firmware and load it. You will have to have the phone unlocked again. I would suggest you go to a cellphone repair center and have them unlock the phone again.
