    Disabled iPhone 3gs

    My kids changed the 4 digit code and forgot what it was, so the old 3gs can not be used any longer.

    Any idea as to how to solve this?

    Thanks

    Restore it from a backup that you remember the code for or restore it as a new phone.
    Facts are the first casualty of bad information.

    I agree with Skull one.

    The passcode is their for a good reason.

    They did pretty well to change your passcode in the first place.

    Restore and then back up from your iTunes is the best way to go.

    Though the problem is solved if you face the same problem again just follow these steps and your problem will be solved


    1. Disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone, leave the other end connected to your Mac/PC
    2. Launch iTunes
    3. Press and hold the Home and Power button on the top of the iPhone to turn off the device
    4. Press and continue to hold the Home button while you reconnect the USB cable to your iPhone, this will cause the iPhone to turn on
    5. Continue to hold the Home button until an alert message in iTunes appears that an iPhone in recovery mode has been detected.
