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

On the home screen of my iPhone it says "iPhone is disabled. Try again in 4,566,757 minutes." & When I try to restore it to itunes it just says, "iTunes could not connect to the iPhone of, my friends name, because it is locked with a passcode. You must enter your passcode on the iPhone before it can be used with iTunes." So I really have no idea what to do. I tried turning it off & on. & the forced restoring. Neither of them worked. 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

If you just wait then it will go this happended to me. If it is locked with a passcode then you need that because otherwise you will have to wait double the time.

My apple ipod is disabled and its showing try again in 21344974 minutes


you need to DFU restore your iPhone. Hope you got a backup, because you're losing the stuff on it. with iPhone plugged in, hold down the sleep wake switch, and the home button for about 10 seconds, until the iPhone turns off. Once the screen goes black, continue holding, count to 8. Release sleep wake switch, continue depressing home button. Wait for iTunes to recognize, and you'll be prompted to restore.

Download the latest iTunes to your computer and reset the iPhone. Then re-sync it.
Reset

To reset iPhone, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds. During this time, a red "power off" slider may appear and the screen may go black, but do not release Sleep/Wake and Home buttons until the Apple logo appears.
If iPhone won't turn on, or the display freezes or doesn't respond
  1. Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  2. If that doesn't work, turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  3. If that doesn't work, reset iPhone. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears

More resets:
Try This:
1. Remove Sim Card
2. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until Apple logo appears
3. Replace Sim Card
4. Hold in 'Home' button and 'On/Off' button together until normal phone screen appears.


Also, Try this:
1.) Shut down the iPhone 3G.
2.) Start up iTunes
3.) Hold down HOME button on the iPhone 3G
4.) While keeping the HOME button depressed, plug in the Sync cable
5.) A message will pop up to ask if you want to reset.
6.) Just click YES and the reset process should start.

My i phone is disabled ask me to go to i tunes i try to restore but is still disabled can u please help me


If you know how to restore what you have to do is..

Turn the phone off
Wait a few minutes
Plug the usb cable in the phone..
As soon as you plug the usb cable, press the home button on the iphone
keep the home button pressed until you see the itunes icon on your screen..

once you see the itunes icon on your screen you can safely restore your iphone without any problem..

If you are unable to see the itunes icon and phone goes straight to the disabled screen then you did not follow the instructions correctly... Try again..
