Question about Apple iPhone 3G Black Smartphone

1 Answer

My iphone 3g recently was disabled for increments up to 60 minutes. Once the 60 minutes was up only 3 numbers of my passcode would be accepted then it would lock up again saying I had to wait another 60 minutes. What would cause this to happen? Soon after my 'slide to unlock' would not slide it was totaly locked up

It sounds like some sort of software bug. If you're not on the latest firmware update, update. Otherwise you're going to have to restore. It doesn't sound like a really serious issue though, so you should be able to restore from a backup. Make sure it's a older backup though, just in case.

Go to iphone setting - then passcode or touch id & passcode. now tap on change passcode and then enter your old passcode and then new passcode. And if you forgot your passcode and your ipod iphone disabled and you want to unlock disabled iphone ipad.


here is the detail procedure
First method you can restore your ipod. But this will erase all your data on ipod. So if you have recent backup then go for restoring ipod. For that just connect your ipod to computer- then open itunes. Make sure you have installed latest itune version otherwise update your itunes first.

Ipad forgotten password


From the apple support site:

iOS: Forgotten passcode or device disabled after entering wrong passcode When you set up a passcode to secure the use of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and then enter the wrong passcode, you may see a a message saying your device is "disabled". Learn what to do if you have forgotten or can't remember your passcode, or if your device displays a message saying it is disabled.If you enter the wrong passcode six or more times, you'll see a message that says one of the following:
  • iPhone is disabled
  • iPad is disabled
  • iPod touch is disabled

  1. Connect the device to the computer with which you normally sync and open iTunes.
    Note: 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.
  2. If the device is still disabled, or if iTunes does not automatically sync your device, sync the device with iTunes.
  3. When the backup and sync is complete, restore your device.
  4. When iOS Setup Assistant asks to set up your device, choose "Restore from iTunes backup".
  5. Select your device in iTunes and choose the most recent backup of your device.
Hope this helps!

Iphone 5 has been disabled and forgotten passcode


iPhone Is Disabled After a series of more failed attempts, your iPhone displays the same "iPhone is Disabled" message, but with an added "Connect to iTunes" message. At this point, your iPhone shuts down completely and you cannot make any more attempts to enter the passcode. In order to restore the device at this stage, you need to connect it to a computer with iTunes installed. Ideally, connect it to a computer that you've used before for syncing your iPhone.

I forgot my iPhone Passcode. What can I do to unlock it?


iPhone setting:*
- Auto-Lock: 1 Minute;*
- Passcode Lock: On, require passcode immediately, after 15 min or 4 hours etc;*
- Network: Turn 3G Off

Scenario 1: Home screen is active with screen on*
1. Press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
2. Slide to power off
3. press power button to turn on iPhone
4.*When asked to enter passcode, touch the "Cancel" key, then slide to unlock
5. bypassed passcode

Scenario 2:*
1. On the screen of being asked to enter passcode, press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
2.*Slide to power off
3. press power button to turn on iPhone
4.*When asked to enter passcode, DO NOT touch any key on the screen, press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
5. Slide to power off
6. press power button to turn on iPhone
7.*When asked to enter passcode, touch the "Cancel" key on the right bottom corner, then slide to unlock
8. bypassed passcode

Notes:
1. When Network setting changes to Enable 3G: ON, "3G" signal shows up, passcode CANNOT be passed through
Go to a underground parking lot or a lift where 3G signal is weak, when 3G signal switches to "E" (Edge), passcode CAN be passed through following above steps
2. When no 3G or Edge signal, above steps don't work

Conclusion:
Seems passcode security is related to network status
Possible security hole under Edge

Take it into an apple store. They will fix it. There are a number of reasons why your phone could get disabled. If you had a passcode and entered the wrong password multiple times for example. The Apple Store typically doesn't charge for this.
