How many times can you enter the wrong pin code on an iphone before it resets?

How many times can you enter the wrong pin code on an iphone before it resets itself?

Hey Robin.T,
Thanks for the question. The following article provides the answer to your question:
iOS: Forgotten passcode or device disabled after entering wrong passcode
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1212
If you enter the wrong passcode six or more times, you'll see a message that says one of the following:
iPhone is disabled
iPad is disabled
iPod touch is disabled
You can also set your passcode lock to wipe the device after 10 unsuccessful attempts (Settings > General > Passcode Lock > Erase Data)
Thanks,
Matt M.

  • How many times can I enter the wrong password restriction?

    I set restrictions on my iphone to disable some apps and save battery. Unfortunately i set it a year ago and I've used it forgotten the password and now I cannot remember it.
    I tried to type the password but i did twice failed passcode, i wonder how many time i can enter the failed passcodes before my iphone will be locked forever.
    Please help me
    THANK YOU!

    If you've forgotten the password, the number of times that the device will accept an invalid password is irrelevant.
    Do as the manual says, restore the device using the computer it normally syncs with and restore as new.  Restoring from backup will not remove the restrictions passcode.

  • How many times can i use the limited warranty on my Apple iPhone 5, I just broke mine after getting a brand new one. Also, can I extend my warranty?

    How many times can i use the limited warranty on my Apple iPhone 5, I just broke mine after getting a brand new one. Also, can I extend my warranty?

    If you purchased AppleCare + within 30 days of getting your iPhone 5 you are allowed 2 instances of breakage replacement with a $49 deductible. If you do not have AppleCare + accidental breakage is not covered under you warranty, you can do an out-of-warranty replacement for $229.

  • How many times can you attempt the restrictions passcode?

    I've forgotten the restrictions passcode I set on my iPod. Since I don't want to perform a complete systems reset just yet, I want to try to attempt remembering my passcode... how many times can I try the restrictions passcode without permanently locking it?

    This is for the restrictions passcode correct? Not the regular passcode....
    And I heard somewhere that if you guess too many times, you will be permanently locked out of your device...

  • Movie rental Q: How many times can you watch the film within 48 hours?

    It's just I have 8 hours left on Into The Wild and I fancied watching it a second time, only it is not playing when I click on the thumbnail. It just says "accessing the iTunes store" for a few seconds. I've tried clicking play. Other films appear to work ok, just not this one. I assume that if it doesn't let me watch it a second time iTunes will give me free movie rental credit.

    According to the FAQ "Once you've started to watch the movie, you have 24 hours to finish watching the movie (even if you start watching before the download is complete). You can watch the movie as many times as you want within this 24-hour period": iTunes Store movie rental usage
    If you are having problems you should contact iTunes Store Customer Services.

  • How many times can you change the region of the computer

    i need to know. is there a limit?

    That's not what the above KB article says but I've never tried it.
    This is what is states:
    In Mac OS X, this dialog box appears the first time a DVD disc is inserted:
    "Since this is the first use of a DVD disc, the drive region code must be initialized before playing.
    "New Drive Setting: Region Code 1
    "You can only change the drive region code 5 more times."
    As I read that, once you set the region code, there are five additional changes permitted. As I said I haven't tried it and I'm not about to.

  • HT1414 How many times can you attempt the restrictions passcode?

    I forgot the restriction code, I already tryed 9 times and the TIME you have to wait after the fifth try is increased like crazzy.

    That is a security measure. If the device is being tampered with, the longer the "tamperer" has to wait, the more likely they are to become discouraged and give up.
    I think that you get 10 attempts, but I can't swear to that having never been in that position. In any event, you will probably have to restore to factory settings if you want to be able to use the iPad again. You cannot restore from a backup - unless that backup does not have the restrictions passcode in it. If it does not have the passcode in it, then restoring from that backup will eliminate the passcode.
    If you have to restore, you have to use iTunes on a computer, since you cannot get into the settings.

  • How many times can you pay the 99 dollar replacement on an ipod 4g?

    I had an ipod touch and broke it so we paid the 99 dollars to have it replaced and have a new one and then I broke that one (Im not the most graceful person) after two months I broke that one would i still be able to pay 99 dollars to get another new one?

    I think so. Apple has not stated a limit.

  • HT201401 How many times can I enter a password if my child has forgotten it?

    My child set a password on a disconnected phone that he was using as an ipod.  I am trying to unlock it.  How many times can I enter a wrong password?  Is there a limit and what are the consequences?
    Thanks!

    Depends. Passcode can be set to erase all data after 10 failed attempts. If you repeatedly enter the wrong passcode, your iPhone, iPad, 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 it to the computer with which you last synced it.

  • How many times can I attempt the passcode before I can't enter it any longer...it has been over 3 hours and it will not let me re-enter it?

    How many times can I attempt the passcode before I can't enter it any longer...it has been over 3 hours and it will not let me re-enter it?  My daughter forgot the new code she put in....

    What dowes the screen say? If it just say disable and gives not time to retry then you have to restore the iPod
    Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode and then connect to your computer and restore via iTunes. The iPod will be erased.

    If you restore from iCloud backup the apps will be automatically downloaded. If you restore from iTunes backup the apps and music have to be in the iTunes library since synced media like apps and music are not included in the backup of the iOS device that iTunes makes.

  • How many times can you clean install leopard on the same computer?

    How many times can you clean install leopard on the same computer? Will the leopard dvd run out of installations and not let you install anymore?

    Hi colman Prez;
    Now that the funny comments have been made, I have a serious question and that why are you worry about reinstalling Leopard with an Erase & Install which is what I take that you mean when you say clean install. In actually fact there is no such thing in OS X as a clean install.
    I am curious because in all the years I have used OS X, I have yet to do an Erase & Install yet.
    I know with Windows that they suggest reformatting and reinstalling at the drop of a hat but that isn't true with OS X.

    How many times can you install Lightroom 5? My problem is that I have saved my programs on C. To I have more space, I want to save my programs now on E. Can I now uninstall Lightroom and reinstall from C to E? Can I use the same license code as the first installation?

    Thank you for your answers, it helps me a lot.
    But sorry for my ignorance. I understand how you mean it, but I don't know how to do it. I'm scared to lose the settings/edits of the images.

  • Offline updates mechanism: how many times can you use it before corrupting the image(wim)?

    Hi,
    As title mentions: "how many times can you use sccm 2012 offline updates for the wim file before corrupting the image(wim)"?

    In my experience the offline servicing feature is only OK and too unreliable for production.

  • How many times can you restore from the same backup?

    how many times can you restore from the same backup?

    As many times as you want till you delete or modify it.
    It's YOUR backup, a copy of all your stuff.
    Not some copyrighted, access controlled bunch of bytes representing a picture, a song or a movie, with a bunch of lawyers from the entertainment maff1a hellbent on restricting what you can do with it.
