    How to Reset an iPhone Passcode

    Every Apple iPhone has the ability to use a "passcode"--a four-digit number that must be entered to bring the iPhone out of standby mode when it has been locked. If you are the first owner of the iPhone and have forgotten the passcode that you initially entered, you can simply reset the passcode by connecting the iPhone to the computer that was originally used to activate it. However, this does not help if you purchased the phone used, and are not the original owner. Put your iPhone into recovery mode to restore the iPhone and clear the passcode.


    Things You'll Need: Apple iPhone, USB sync cable

    1.Connect the iPhone to your computer using the USB cable.

    2.Hold the power button on the iPhone down. The screen will change asking you to use a slider to power the unit off. Use the slider.

    3.Press the power and home (bottom-center) buttons simultaneously. The unit will power back on. After a few seconds, the screen will change to a warning triangle. The iPhone is now in recovery mode.
    4.Launch iTunes, and click on the iPhone icon on the left side of the screen. Make sure that the "Summary" tab is selected, and scroll down until you see the "Restore" button. Click "Restore."

    5.Click "Don't Back Up," then click "Restore." The iPod will be reverted to its original factory settings, which will clear the passcode. Note that this process will also remove all other data from the iPhone, including music, contacts, notes and saved e-mails.

    What a stupid way to do it. Just connect to iTunes and select the restore button in iTunes. No need for all that holding power and home nonsense.
    I have done it this way many times with my phone before updating and it always removes my passcode.
