It depends on the severity and the settings you have given the iPhone and whether you have the computer that you synced your iPhone with... Here's the full explanation. I would recommend reading the second paragraph first, but the solution if you really forgot your password is in the first paragraph. 
==If you have the computer you synced your iPhone with==
If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device on the computer that was used to originally sync the iPhone or iPod touch so that you can reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced to the iPhone or iPod touch, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode but your data will not be present. Refer to "Updating and restoring iPhone and iPod touch software."

"If you enter the wrong passcode too many times, you'll see a message that says "iPhone is disabled" and to try again later. If you repeatedly enter the wrong passcode, iPhone or iPod touch will be disabled for longer intervals, before you can try again. After too many unsuccessful attempts, you won't be able to try again until you connect to the computer you normally sync with. Note that starting with iPhone 2.1 software, there is a setting to cause the device to erase itself after 10 consecutive incorrect password attempts. This setting is off by default. It  can be turned on by tapping Settings > General > Passcode Lock after you enter a correct passcode." 
The full article can be found here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1212

==If you don't have the computer you synced your iPhone with==
If you don't have the original computer the iPhone synced with, the only solution is to force your iPod Touch into recovery mode and then restore it. You will lost all the data on the iPod Touch, but after this method is done, everything will work. You can find the steps to solving this problem here:

There is a very easy and simple solution for this.
Simply put your phone in DFU mode (check youtube or google on how to do that) and when iTunes will show you that your phone needs to be restored and updated so you click OK. As easy as that, no passcodes or anything.

Just connect your iPhone to your computer that you normally sync with, do a sync with iTunes, and it will reset the number of attempts you are allowed. So it gives you 10 more tries. If you still can't remember, just do a sync again.

If you forgot iPhone passcode, you will need to restore your phone via iTunes.
Firstly you have to put your phone into the restore mode.
Plug your iPhone into your PC or Mac with the USB cable
Press and hold the power button at the top and then slide to power off the iPhone
Press the power button to power the iPhone on and keep it held while simultaneously pressing the home button
After a few seconds a yellow alert triangle will appear and the iPhone will say it is iPhone Restore Mode.
Open up iTunes and click on the Summary tab
Click on Restore to restore your iPhone. This will reset all your iPhone's setting to the factory defaults, including the Passcode. You should then follow the steps above to activate the Passcode with a memorable number and un-lock it.

SOURCE: i forgot my apple iphone

Try the Restore procedure from iTunes If you have problems. But first try the recovery procedure.
1.
Disconnect your iPhone cable but leave connected the other USB end to the computer.
2.
Turn off your iPhone holding the Sleep/Wake button. The red slider bar appears. Slide the bar and wait until the iPhone turns off. Or you could hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time until the iPhone turns off.
3.
While pressing and holding the Home button connect the USB cable to your iPhone. It should power on. Hold the Home button until you see the "Connect to iTunes" message. Open iTunes if necessary. You should see the "iTunes detected an iPhone in recovery mode..." alert screen.


Choose " Restore"

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.
