How do you unlock a forgotten passcode on an iphone 4g


As you have forgot the passcode you will have to restore the iPhone using iTunes.

Note: This process will wipe all data from your iPhone 4. You may be able to sync most of the data back once you have restored it.

1. With the iPhone 4 disconnected from your computer, power it off. Press and hold the Power button on the top of the device for a few seconds, then slide the red slider. If this method doesn't work, press and hold the Power and Home buttons for a few seconds until it goes off.


2. With the iPhone 4 off, press and hold the Home button while connecting it to the computer you registered it from. It should then power on.


3. Keep holding the Home button until you see a Connected to iTunes message appear on the screen.
