iTunes enables you to restore iPhone to factory settings. Before you start restoring iPhone to factory settings, please note that you need to install the latest version of iTunes on your PC or MAC. Then go to Settings > iCloud to turn off Find My iPhone. Now, you can factory reset your iPhone with iTunes as follows.

1. Plug iPhone into the computer with the USB cable. The iTunes on your computer will automatically launch. If not, double-click the icon to start it.
2. Click the name of your iPhone at the upper right corner of iTunes, and then the information of your iPhone will be shown. Click the "Restore iPhone" button in the window to start.
3. iTunes will ask whether you want to back up iPhone before restoring. You'd better choose "Yes" for the reset will erase the contents in your iPhone. Then iTunes will start restoring your iPhone to factory settings.

Iphone stuck on apple logo

  1. Connect the iPhone's USB cable to your computer, but not your iPhone.
  2. Turn you iPhone off. If the phone won't turn off in the traditional manner, just keep holding the buttons until the screen goes dark.
  3. Once you've turned the device off, press the home button on the face of the device and plug in the USB cable to the device's dock connector.
  4. When it turns on, keep pressing the home button until the iTunes logo appears on the screen.
  5. You'll know the phone is now in recovery mode because a window in iTunes will tell you.
  6. You can then start the restore process by clicking the "Restore" button in the iTunes window.

    Some of the advice from the reply from Joed911 is correct. I used to work tech support for Apple Care on the iPhone, and I can tell you that there is no link in iTunes that say's "Unlock your iPhone" THESE ARE YOUR OPTIONS .............. 1) Your daughter can remember the password she set. 2) You will need to restore his iPhone using iTunes. *** Assuming # 1 is not an option I have instructions on how to restore his iPhone. Restoration of iPhone to original factory defaults will fix your problem, with the downside that all data and information stored on your phone will be lost. Normally iTunes will make a backup automatically when you connect and sync the iPhone with the program, however, it?s still a good recommendation to copy out and backup everything that you may need on the phone before proceed to restore the iPhone. To manually back up his iphone: ~Connect to itunes , on the left side of the itunes page you will see the iphone icon. ~ Right click the iphone icon ( under devices) and choose back-up from the drop down box. To restore iPhone and reset the phone to default factory settings, follow these steps: ***Easiest way to restore his iPhone: (this will work if his iphone is recognized in iTunes under devices) ~ Just left click on the iPhone icon under devices in itunes , ~ under the summary pane you will the option to restore his iphone. ~ click "RESTORE IPHONE" ~ wait for the process to finish restoration . ***** If his iPhone is not recognized in itunes under devices you will not see the iPhone icon. In this case you will need to restore with this method. 1. Turn off iPhone ? Hold down the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the red slider. Ignore this step if your iPhone is already off. 2. Press and hold down the Home button for about 10 seconds until a yellow triangle with a text which says Please Connect to iTunes appears. iPhone Recovery Mode 3. Plug the iPhone into Mac or Windows PC. Release the button if you haven?t. 4. Run and open iTunes if it?s not already opened yet. 5. iTunes will prompt a message that says iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Click OK. 6. You will be taken to the iPhone pane. Then, click on Restore. 7. Wait for the full restoration process to complete, and the iPhone will be back to the original settings. AFTER RESTORING THE IPHONE YOU CAN >>>RIGHT CLICK IPHONE AGAIN UNDER DEVICES AND CHOOSE RESTORE FROM BACK-UP TO REPLACE SOME OF HIS INFO PREVIOUSLY ON THE IPHONE. Hope this was helpful , and Good Luck !! Teresa

    My daughter set a password for son's iphone 3G and she cannot remember the password, can someone advice me how to unlock the phone

    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.

    If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Thanks, Joe

    How can i open apple i phone model no A 1203 without passcode..???what is common pass code in apple i phone A1203..??pl tell me....i really need some ones

    If you forgotten the pass-code on the iphone, usually the only option is to restore the iphone.
    By default, Itunes is not going to give you the option to restore when you plug your iphone in. What you will have to do is to put that iphone in recovery mode.
    Restoring your iphone will delete everything on your iphone! -Hold down the top button and the home button of the iphone together until you see a silver apple logo -when you see the silver apple logo let go of the top button of the iphone and keep holding on to the bottom button of the iphone until you see a usb plug with an up arrow going into itunes -plug into itunes and it will detect a phone in recovery mode -click ok -click restore -click restore and update
    I Hope this Helps! Good luck!

    My iphone 3gs willnot on and not show me the apple logo

    Instead of trying to update when you connect to iTunes you should try to restore the phone completely.

    You can find the restore button in the lower right hand corner of your screen. If iTunes asks if you want to update click cancel. You just want to restore.

    If it is still not turning on after it reappears in iTunes you should take it to Apple if it is still under warranty they will exchange it for you.
