People always forget passwords and swipe sequences. Perhaps NSA had a back door put in there.

Perhaps a password cracker exists for iTunes? Perhaps your cellular carrier can transfer all that from your old phone to the new phone for you, or the old phone backed up/restored via a third-party application. Such a utility exists; I just don't remember what it's called.

I don't trust anything Apple as far as I can throw Steve Jobs' buried coffin, so I used the OneMediaHub app to back up Mom's new iPhone 4S, thus keeping Apple totally out of the loop. I can access the info on the Funambol/OneMediaHub Web site, and can reset the password through their Web site at any time if I forget it.

OneMediaHub works on iOS, Android, and (!) Windows Phone/Windows Mobile, and can transfer one's information quite easily between any of them.

New iPad only finds my big fish account from iPhone need to pick up from my old iPad.

Backup the IPad, in fact do 2 backups, 1 to
ICloud, 1 in ITunes. If you have sensitive data, health data, for example, make sure to turn encryption on. Start trying to restore from Itunes because it preserves your music. If the restore from ITunes doesn't work or something is missing, restore from the ICloud backup. Hope this helps.

How to re set iphone 3

If you are attempting to reset your iPhone by means of a factory restore through iTunes, you can retrieve your contacts if you had previously backed up your iPhone on your local PC or through iCloud.

If you are attempting to perform a soft and/or hard reset because your iPhone unexpectedly locked up/froze, etc. in order to get back to the home screen and it proves to be successful, I would highly recommend that you perform a backup ASAP to avoid losing any new data you may have added since your last good backup.

Once the restore is completed you can restore from the last backup.
NOTE: If your backup is encrypted, make sure you remember what your password is for that backup, otherwise there is no way to retrieve that information. Apple will not be able to help you in this instance.

In my phone i am using the screen lock with numbers passwords but now the password is not working how can i get back the password

If you have previously synced your device with iTunes, you may be able to reset the passcode by restoring the device: Connect the device to the computer with which you normally sync and open iTunes. If iTunes asks you to enter the passcode, try another computer that you have synced with. Otherwise, go to "If you have never synced your device with iTunes, or you do not have access to a computer" section below. If the device is still disabled, or if iTunes does not automatically sync your device, sync the device with iTunes. If you have chosen to encrypt your backup, it will contain the passcode. Disable backup encryption before restoring from backup. Learn more about iOS backups in iTunes. When the backup and sync is complete, select Restore from Backup and choose the most recent backup of your device.

How to reset password on iphone without itunes

If what you say is iPhone backup password, just with a computer and a tool, iPhone backup password will be reset.

iTunes Password Genius can run in Windows computer. What you need to do is run it on computer, add iTunes backup into it, and set password attack type for backup password recovery. Once all of these done, click "Recover" button is enough.

But if you want to change or disable iPhone backup password, you need to connect iPhone to computer and do that in iTunes.

If the password you say is iPhone passcode, factory reset iPhone is a method. You can reset a new password for iPhone after factory reset. However, all of things on iPhone have deleted too. Now restore iPhone from iTunes backup on computer is a best way. The backup password could be recovered with iTunes Password Genius.
