Forgot the passcode
« on: May 05, 2013, 12:30 PM »
Okay so my brother gave me his old phone an iphone, when he got a new one, but, there is a catch! he forgot the passcode for unlocking the phone and now we can't open it and every time we enter a wrong pass the waiting time for trying again gets longer and longer, i googled for help and they said " that if i connect the phone to itunes i can update and restore the phone but i will lose everything on it and that okay because there is nothing important on it, but here is my problem, i did what they said and i think it worked but, the download time for the new update is 11 hours  :-\ i think that has to do with my slow network connection and any way i can't stay online for 11 hours because we don't get straight 11 hours of electricity, yes, we have very very long electricity rationing :loudcry: now my question, does anyone know of a different way to unlock the phone or maybe a shortcut to the download time on itunes?

The only thing I can think of would be take your phone to an Apple store and ask them to help you with your problem.  They should do it for you for free, considering it's their product which they have to offer support for it.

I doubt they will, I know a guy who brought them his old iPhone 3GS to get reseted so he could sell it online.  Shortly after he got the iPhone 4s, and he didn't have any problems whatsoever getting it done.
