Hi,

According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the iPod by doing the following:

  • Connect your iPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one iPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
  • If you can't unlock iPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your iPod is associated with, do this:

  • Restore your iPod. Warning: The restore process cannot be undone.All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data.
  • Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer
  • Open iTunes and synchronize.
Note: Apple also notes that company "representatives cannot unlock an iPod if you forget your combination. If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the iPod, which will erase all music and data."

Regards,
Riztech

I forgot my security screen pass code how can i fix it


There are only 4 choices. 1. Try every passcode you can possibly remember. 2. Bring it to a service center that uses a special hardware device that clears/reads the passcode (about $90-100). 3. Online, locate and buy your own hardware passcode reader/reset device (about $400). 4. Use the factory service menu upon a cold boot and reset the device back to factory (but you will lose everything). These are your only 4 options. I'd start with option 1, consider option 2 if you want to spend the money and really need the contents of your phone, and then finally resort to option 4 and remember to write down the passcode somewhere next time this happens again, like in an email sent to yourself that you can easily access from any internet connected device using a standard internet browser.

Forgot my pattern password on my budget mobile verizon phone


After pressing OK or waiting the 30 seconds, press navigation key to bring up screen again. I'm guessing you have a Motorola phone, but maybe not. You will get back to the security lock screen but there will be a button on bottom right that states Forgot pattern (or passcode). If you forgot your screen unlock pattern or passcode, tap Forgot pattern (or passcode). You will be prompted to sign in using the Google account you programmed into the handset during initial start up. If successful, you will move to next screen to create a new security lock. You can cancel out of that step and return to homescreen.

It seems that you've incorrectly entered the pass code too many times. The screen should tell you how long you have to wait to try again. If you don't recall your passcode then connect your phone to your computer, start iTunes, and choose "restore".

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

Forgot my passcode


Bad News... you may have to Restore from iTunes. Here is some info from the users manual:
Passcode Lock By default, iPhone doesn’t require you to enter a passcode to unlock it. Set a passcode: Choose General > Passcode Lock and enter a 4-digit passcode, then enter the passcode again to verify it. iPhone then requires you to enter the passcode to unlock it or to display the passcode lock settings.
Turn passcode lock off: Choose General > Passcode Lock, enter your passcode, and tap Turn Passcode Off, then enter your passcode again. Change the passcode: Choose General > Passcode Lock, enter your passcode, and tap Change Passcode. Enter your passcode again, then enter and reenter your new passcode.
If you forget your passcode, you must restore the iPhone software. See “Updating and Restoring iPhone Software” on page 204.
Set how long before your passcode is required: Choose General > Passcode Lock and enter your passcode. Tap Require Passcode, then select how long iPhone can be idle before you need to enter a passcode to unlock it.

Forgot my admin passcode


If you don't know the BIOS password the best way to go about this will be to locate the CMOS battery and remove it. The CMOS battery stores the system's setup information (boot sequence, time/date, password, etc.) and most laptops don't have a clear CMOS jumper like desktop motherboards do. If you provide an exact model number we can help you locate the battery.

Otherwise you might have luck unplugging the AC power to the laptop and removing the battery pack. Try again after 24 hours.

Good luck.
