How to unlock iPhone without password

Hello Allen. If your iPhone is disabled, the only way to unlock it is to completely erase and reset it. If you have a backup, you'll be able to restore it, otherwise you'll lose all of your data. There is no way to unlock a disabled iPhone unless you use the correct passcode or you erase it.

Step 1. Connect your iPhone to the computer with via a USB cable that your iPhone has trusted.
Step 2. Launch iTunes. If you've synced your iPhone with iTunes, then no "enter password" is required.
Step 3. iTunes will automatically sync your iPhone and create a backup file. If it doesn't, you should sync your iTunes and create a backup file manually by clicking "Back up Now" in the Summary window.
Step 4. In the Summary window, you can see the option "Restore iPhone". Click it to reset your iPhone. Once the reset process is complete, you'll be taken through the iPod's initial setup process.
Step 5. Select "Restore from iTunes backup" during the setup process. This will load the backup that you created so that all of your data is restored.

First u need to do is to state which model and device ur using.
After that, u could do two things:
1. Find out is there a recovery disc for your computer. Insert it to your driver then restart your computer and press F2 ( depending on the model of your device). This will erase all your data and makes a clean start. Meaning all your document, emails, family pictures will be erased..
2. Or u can restore your computer to an earlier time using System Restore. With this option, u are limited to date u first restored your computer.

My iphone 4 just suddenly froze it is on but when i press the keys it either takes ages to respond or just doesnt respond and it outlines the keys for my passcode when i try pressing them. i have tried...

The IOS firmware is a pretty stable platform. Sometimes an application or a sync issue occurs which causes the instability in your iphone.
The best way to fix the issues is to restore your iphone 4 to its original settings. You can restore back the settings from a back up copy from a computer that you sync with. The back up is held on yourcomputer that you sync your music/pictures/contacts has a back up of it. (If you don't have your phone backed up, you would need a computer to sync with to make that backup)
How to restore (2 Ways) 1. Restoring it from a computer is connecting it to a computer and waiting for the itunes to recognize the Iphone. From the sync menu, you should have an option showed below.balagotjab_0.jpg
After it restores, sync it back to your computer and it wastore all the settings that you had before. But you must have synced it before.
2. There is another option to restore the phone. Go to your settings->General (Has a picture of the gears) ->Reset
In this menu there should be another button to Erase All Content and Settings. When you select it, a box will pop up with a red button saying Erase iphone. There is also a warning saying it will delete all media and data and will take up to an hour. Touch the red button and your iPhone will format itself back to factory settings.
Connect it back to your computer to restore the missing contacts/pictures/music and settings.

You erased all data, so you will need to:
1. Reconnect iPhone to the computer
2. Choose Restore
3. Choose the last saved profile, or whichever one you'd like and restore to that profile.

Next time you want to erase the amt of pic's on the phone, just use the tab in iTunes and deselect the folders you'd like to remove then sync and you'll have made room.

Hope this helps,

Ipone 3gs restore factory setting code?

How to Restore iPhone 3G to Factory Settings

Make sure you are on the screen that holds your Settings icon. That is the icon with gears pictured in it. Touch the Settings icon.

In the Settings menu, touch the line that says General. It also has a picture of gears.

Scroll down the General page and you will see a line that says Reset. Select Reset.

This screen will show you several options you can reset including setting, home screen, keyboard dictionary, network settings and location warning. However, to erase all data, you will select the line that says Erase All Content and Settings. When you select it, a box will pop up with a red button saying Erase iPhone. There is also a warning saying it will delete all media and data and will take up to an hour. Touch the red button and your iPhone will format itself back to factory settings.

Tips & Warnings

Back up all data you want to save on your computer.


To restore iPhone and reset the phone to default factory settings, follow these steps:

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 state as when it left the manufacturing factory, typically a working phone again if you face any problem, unless it's hardware related.

There is another mode called DFU mode which does not load the iBoot, and commonly used to downgrade the firmware and restore custom IPSW.

Use the link to below for DFU

Hope it helped.

Thanks for using fixya,..
