hey guys i forgot the password for my iphone 4S and i keep on trying any passwords but now my iphone has deactivated it self and its asking me the password but i cant remember it and i dont have the last compter it syniced with!!! so what should i do ?

In your case your only solution is to restore it ( see http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808 ) and you may need to force it into restore mode to do that.  This will wipe everything off it and reset it as new, without the passcode.  You can then redownload purchased content, buy unless you have a sync'd copy of your contacts and photo's they will be gone.

    Take it back to whomever you purchased it from and ask for a refund. There is no way to get past the "Activation Lock".

    Options for when an iOS device gets locked because of forgotten passcode:
    Restore (and reset passcode) on your device by connecting it to the last computer to which it was connected:
    iTunes: Backing up, updating, and restoring iOS software - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1414  ( https://discussions.apple.com/message/20025416 - "A restore erases the iPod. If you restore from backup the iPod will be like it was IF the iTunes library includeds [sic] all the synced media like apps and music since those are not included in the backup.")
    If you cannot connect it to the computer to which the device was last connected (or the device was never connected to a computer) you will have to use recovery mode to completely reset the device, losing all data:
    iOS: Unable to update or restore - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808 - recovery mode (e.g., cannot connect to computer last used to sync device, iTunes still asks for a password)
    If none of the above work, try:
    DFU mode: http://osxdaily.com/2010/12/04/ipad-dfu-mode/

  • CANT ACTIVATE IPAD BECAUSE I DONT HAVE THE OWNERS ICLOUD INFO

    I BOUGHT AN IPAD AT A PAWN SHOP AND I TRIED TO WIPE IT B/C THE PREVIOUS USERS INFO WAS STILL ON IT. I CANT GET PAST THE ACTIVATION PAGE. HELP

    Return it and get your money back if you can. It's useless to you. There is no way to bypass activation lock. There is a very high probability that:
    a) The device is lost or was stolen.
    b) The owner of the pawn shop is and idiot and did not ensure that Find my iPhone was turned off before buying it from who ever pawned it.
    Either way, you can't use it. At all.

    If you have a rescue email address (which is not the same thing as an alternate email address) set up on your account then go to https://appleid.apple.com/ and click 'Manage your Apple ID' on the right-hand side of that page and log into your account. Then click on 'Password and Security' on the left-hand side of that page and on the right-hand side you should see an option to send security question reset info to your rescue email address.
    If you don't have a rescue email address (you won't be able to add one until you can answer 2 of your questions) then you won't get the reset option - you will need to contact iTunes Support or Apple to get them reset.
    e.g. you can try contacting iTunes Support : http://www.apple.com/support/itunes/contact/ - click on Contact iTunes Store Support on the right-hand side of the page, then Account Management , and then 'Forgotten Apple ID security questions'
    or try ringing Apple in your country and ask to talk to the Accounts Security Team : http://support.apple.com/kb/HE57
    When they've been reset (and if you don't already have a rescue email address) you can then use the steps half-way down this page to add a rescue email address for potential future use : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5312 . Or, if it's available in your country, you could change to 2-step verification : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5570

    No.  purchases are forever tied to the apple ID used to buy them.  Delete them and buy your own copies.

    Using iPhone/iPad Recovery Mode
    http://ipod.about.com/od/iphonetroubleshooting/a/Iphone-Recovery-Mode.htm
    Saw this solution on another post about an iPad in a school environment. Might work on your iPad so you won't lose everything.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ‘iPad is disabled’ fix without resetting using iTunes
    Today I met my match with an iPad that had a passcode entered too many times, resulting in it displaying the message ‘iPad is disabled – Connect to iTunes’. This was a student iPad and since they use Notability for most of their work there was a chance that her files were not all backed up to the cloud. I really wanted to just re-activate the iPad instead of totally resetting it back to our default image.
    I reached out to my PLN on Twitter and had some help from a few people through retweets and a couple of clarification tweets. I love that so many are willing to help out so quickly. Through this I also learned that I look like Lt. Riker from Star Trek (thanks @FillineMachine).
    Through some trial and error (and a little sheer luck), I was able to reactivate the iPad without loosing any data. Note, this will only work on the computer it last synced with. Here’s how:
    1. Configurator is useless in reactivating a locked iPad. You will only be able to completely reformat the iPad using Configurator. If that’s ok with you, go for it – otherwise don’t waste your time trying to figure it out.
    2. Open iTunes with the iPad disconnected.
    3. Connect the iPad to the computer and wait for it to show up in the devices section in iTunes.
    4. Click on the iPad name when it appears and you will be given the option to restore a backup or setup as a new iPad (since it is locked).
    5. Click ‘Setup as new iPad’ and then click restore.
    6. The iPad will start backing up before it does the full restore and sync. CANCEL THE BACKUP IMMEDIATELY. You do this by clicking the small x in the status window in iTunes.
    7. When the backup cancels, it immediately starts syncing – cancel this as well using the same small x in the iTunes status window.
    8. The first stage in the restore process unlocks the iPad, you are basically just cancelling out the restore process as soon as it reactivates the iPad.
    If done correctly, you will experience no data loss and the result will be a reactivated iPad. I have now tried this with about 5 iPads that were locked identically by students and each time it worked like a charm.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Try it and good luck. You have nothing more to lose if it doesn't work for you.
     Cheers, Tom

  • My ipod has had a previous owner How do I change my ipods email address so that when I try to down load anything it asks for the previous owners password but when I go to my account it says its my email my account but not when I try to download????

    My ipod has had a previous owner How do I change my ipods email address so that when I try to down load anything it asks for the previous owners password but when I go to my account it says its my email my account but not when I try to download can anyone please help me ????Plus it still has some of the previous owners pictures and videos on it that I want to delete and can't????? Also is there a way to kill the apps that u have used throughout the day the battery doesn't last long at all ??????

    - How did you dlete stuff from the iPod? If you have a 1G or 2G iPod and deleted the stuff by going to Settings>Genera.>Reset>Erase aall contents and settings without being connected to a power source, the battery dies before he erase was comleted since it can take hour.
    - In any event try the following:
    - Connect to a chaging sour for three hours.
    - Reset the iPod and then connect to the computer and try to restore va iTunes.
    Reset iPod touch:  Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Next try placing the iPod in recovery moe and then try to restore. For recovery mode:
    iPhone and iPod touch: Unable to update or restore
    - Last try DFU made and restore.

    I tried to install windows 7 in my macbook pro late 2011 but i tried to create partions after it installed and it turn to dynamic disks and i can't access mac or win 7 what should I do i cant format it because i dont have a backup

    It's not that you can't format it because you have no backup, it's because you'll lose everything when you do. Lesson learned. Always have a backup.

    i lost my ipad, but i cant found it, because i dont have my icloud on in the ipad

    Yes, really. I'm sorry to hear that you lost your iPad, but your question is a bit like asking why you can't see in the dark when the lights are not on. As  Diavonex said, if you didn't set up iCloud, and in particular Find my iPad, you cannot track it. hopefully you at least had a passcode enabled.

    - Try another cable. Some 5G iPods were shipped with Lightning cable that were either initially defective or failed after short use.
    - Try another charging source
    - Inspect the dock connector on the iPod for bent or missing contacts, foreign material, corroded contacts, broken, missing or cracked plastic.
    - Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.
