    hello, i have blocked my iphone 8 after many attempts. Having a problem with Itune I have not made a backup. My question is there a way to re-activate my iphone 8 without going through reset.
    several people tell me it's possible, can you guide me?
    thank you

    Welcome to iPhone Forums!

    The only way to reactivate your iPhone is to erase it. If there‘s no backup, you‘ll lose all your data, at first.

    The features and the content you sync via iCloud will return after setting up the iCloud ID and enabling them. Data stored in other cloud services, such as Outlook or Gmail, e.g., will also reappear after installing the apps/setting up the accounts.
    Everything else will be lost. There‘s not way to retrieve these. If a service promises to get back all of your data, it relies on a backup. Since that‘s not available, they won‘t work.

    Hope that helps.

    Reliable? Something else?

    Afaik, there‘s no other way. If someone tells you something different, it might be an illegal way to reactivate your device, or these people are scammers. We don‘t support any of this.

    No problem. Just remember to frequently back up your iPhone going forward.
