Hi,

Turn your phone off, hold down the home button & then connect to itunes and itunes will pop up with a message saying it has detected an iphone in recovery mode and give you the option to restore and continue through the steps to restore your iphone as new, this means all your data on the phone will be wiped, if you restore the phone from a back up it will put all your data back on, if you know your passcode by all means restore from a back up but if you do and it still doesnt work you need to restore as new

Use the following steps to restore your device:

  1. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update.
  2. Connect your device to your computer.
  3. Select your iPhone when it appears in iTunes under Devices.
  4. Select the Summary tab.
  5. Select the Restore option.
  6. When prompted to back up your settings before restoring, select the Back Up option (as seen in the image below). If you have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.

  7. Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you (as long as you've backed up your device, you should not have to worry about restoring your phone).
  8. Once the restore process has completed, the device restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up:
    ht1414_05--restored-002-en.jpg
    iPhone only: For the iPhone only, after a restore, the iPhone displays the "Connect to iTunes" screen. Keep your device connected until the "Connect to iTunes" screen goes away or you see "iPhone is activated." If iTunes does not have an Internet connection, you cannot complete this step.

  9. The final step is to restore your device from a previous backup. Once your device is restored and-in the case of the iPhone-in the process of activating, you should be my cousin typed in the - ht1414_08--set_up-003-en.png iTunes:

    Select the backup you want for your device and select the Continue button to complete your device's restoration.
If you do not want to restore from backup, select "Set up as new..."

My phone says its disabled


You need to log into iTunes and then connect your iPhone to unlock it. Maybe the password was entered wrong too many times? If that doesn't work you may need to call Apple or your carrier for help.

Although a passcode limits your iPhone to authorized use only, protecting your vital personal information, if you forget it, you can't use your phone until you enter the correct code or revert your phone to the default factory status.
Apple provides ways to resolve a forgotten passcode problem and improve the iPhone's security.

Wrong Passcode

When you enable iPhone passcode security, the phone requires you to enter the code to display the home screen.
By default, when this protection feature is enabled, you'll be prompted to enter the passcode to turn on or restart the iPhone, wake it or unlock the screen.
When you enter the wrong passcode, the "Wrong Passcode try again" message appears onscreen.
If you enter the incorrect code too many times, the iPhone will lock automatically and display the "iPhone is disabled, try again in 1 minute" message.
This disabling security feature is designed to protect it from unauthorized tampering.
If you keep entering the incorrect code, the iPhone will be disabled for a longer time.

Restoring iPhone
If you don't remember your passcode, unfortunately, there is no way to retrieve it.
Apple says that the only way to solve passcode problems is to restore the iPhone with iTunes.
Before restoring the phone, downloading and installing the latest version of iTunes will improve connection and decrease the chances of errors.
Unfortunately, restoring the iPhone erases saved content and clears custom settings, so create a backup copy of your files with iTunes before proceeding.
From there, you can restore your iPhone by clicking the "Restore" button on the device's "Summary" tab in iTunes.
When the process completes, you can change the passcode settings.



Changing Passcode Settings
iPhone allows you to not only create a new passcode, but specify the amount of time it should take before the screen locks after inactivity.
You can also specify whether you want to use a simple four-digit passcode or a longer one that can include letters and numbers.
Tapping the "Settings" icon on the home screen will bring up the phone's settings.
From there, tapping "General" and then tapping "Passcode Lock" will bring up the "Passcode Lock" customization screen.
Select the settings you want to use to protect your iPhone. The changes will take effect immediately or when the iPhone turns off.

Tips

After restoring your iPhone, create a passcode you'll remember easily.
While creating a longer passcode can increase the security on your phone, you can forget it easily if you don't write it down and store it in a safe place.
gmail password reset
Open the Web browser on your phone and navigate to gmail.com.
Tap "Can't access your account" located under the "Sign in" button.
Select "I forgot my password" and then click "Reset your password here."
Type your email into the "Email" text box and then type the random captcha into the captcha text box.
An email with your new Gmail password will be sent to your alternate Gmail address.
Follow the directions in the email to reset your password.
Type the new Gmail password into the loin screen on your Droid to unlock the account.

Iphone says phone is disabled connect to itunes what do ido


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.
