HT4113 is there anyway to enter passcode after it says ipad disabled?  I don't want to restore it.

My daughter entered the wrong passcode on the ipad and now it is disabled.  Is there anyway to enter passcode now even after ipad says  "ipad disabled."  I don't want to restore it and lose everything.

You can restore from your backup on your computer or iCloud.

You may have to do this several times.
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 canceling 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

    Sorry, but once you have entered your passcode too many times, you have to restore it. Do you not have a backup you can restore it to?

  • Cant enter passcode to take off "iPad disabled"

    My ipad is disabled and told me to connect to iTunes. when i connected it to itunes it told me i had to enter passcode but it wont let me. what do i do? i dont mind resetting the iPad

    Force your iPad into Recovery Mode
    1. Disconnect the USB cable from the device, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.
    2. Turn off the device: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the device to turn off.
    3.While pressing and holding the Home button, reconnect the USB cable to the device. The device should turn on.
    4. Continue holding the Home button until you see the "Connect to iTunes" screen. When this screen appears, release the Home button. iTunes should alert you that it has detected a device in recovery mode. Click OK, and then click Restore to restore the device.
    Note: Data will be lost.

  • HT5467 I have an ipod touch 4th gen.  Is there anyway to enter my location other than registering my router with skyhook?

    I have an ipod touch 4th gen.  Is there anyway to enter my location manually or do i have to register my home router with skyhook?  I live in the middle of nowhere literally and my home router is the only wi-fi for miles.

    Thanks for the reply.  There is no cell phone signal available here.  The nearest McDonald's to my ranch is 200 miles east in Aberdeen, SD. The router is in my house and the local coop telephone company installed it and I use Windows.  I know........
    I am using the ipod for music and also the ihome weather link through their i+sleep app.  The ipod just keeps searching for my location.
    It seems like you could have a default location set up in the ipod.  Any ideas?

  • Is there anyway to play my games on my Ipad on Apple TV?

    Is there anyway to play my games on my Ipad on Apple TV?

    Hi telteknv,
    As long as you have an iPad 2 and an Apple TV 2 that are both connected to the same Wi-Fi network, you can mirror the display. Double click the home button, scroll to the left until you see the AirPlay icon (looks like a rectangle with a triangle at the bottom), choose [Apple TV Name] from the menu, and make sure the mirroring switch is set to ON.
    Hope this helps,
    O.C.

    If you do not know the password, then you cannot use the backup.

  • Is there anyway I can save emails on my iPad by category somewhere? I have a bigpond email account?

    Is there anyway I can save emails on my iPad by category somewhere? I have a bigpond email account?

    I don't know what type of mail bigpond is, but if it is Exchange or IMAP, you can create folders on your iPad to keep messages in.  To create a folder, you go to the main page of your mailboxes in the mail app and on the top you see mailboxes, on the bottom you see accounts.  Open the mailbox from the accounts side.  On the right hand upper corner you'll see an edit button.  Touch it and you'll see a new mailbox button on the bottom right hand corner.  Touch new mailbox, type in the name and you'll have a new folder, which you can store messages in.

  • Is there anyway to recover my calendar on the IPad?

    Is there anyway to recover my calendar on the IPad? When I did synch from Mini it eliminated all entries that had been done on the IPad.

    Yeah we said the same thing....quite upsetting. This was a last ditch effort to try and recoup anything I would definitely suggest anyone out there looking for a merchant services app to stay away from this one....the stupid thing gave no indication AT ALL that there was a problem!

    All you can do is to restore and thus erase the iPod unless you can get a data recovery company to preserve the data.
    Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode and then connect to your computer and restore via iTunes. The iPod will be erased.

  • Unable to delete email from trash bin.  How do I do this?  If I select and chose delete, it doesn't.  What am I doing wrong?  My grand daughte is using my iPad and I don't want her to see some of the mail there.

    Unable to delete email from trash bin.  How do I do this?  If I select and chose delete, it doesn't.  What am I doing wrong?  My grand daughte is using my iPad and I don't want her to see some of the mail there.

    There are two ways that should work. When you are in the trash folder, you can swipe on the email in the list - left to right - and a red Delete button should pop up. Or you can select - Edit - at the top of the list of messages and then select the message and tap delete.
    Not sure exactly how this works - but if you have restrictions enabled - especially since you let your grandchild use the device - that may be restricting what you can do in the mail app. Go to Settings>General>Restrictions. If you have it set to on - turn it off or see if you have mail restricted.

  • There is no option to reject an incoming call in locked screen, there must be an icon on the screen for one who don't want to use lock button several times, i did'nt face this problem in last ios 6.1.3.

    A good read. Have you done anything at all to resolve your problem. Reset? Restore?
    By the way - "your products"... nobody here produced the iPhone, we are all just users. Apple is not here.

    Connect the iOS device to your computer and try to make a backup.

    Then restore via iTunes. Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode if necessary to allow the restore.

    To restore from backup see:
    iOS: How to back up
    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.

  • Hi, I'm a bit low on memory and I can't update the iOS. I need to move some photos off the iPad but I don't want to transfer them to a pc, I'd prefer to transfer them to iCloud and leave them there.  Is that possible?

    Yes, you could, because in this case you would have something like a backup in the cloud. BTW, personally I also like Flickr. Flickr offers you 1 TB (1000 GB) of free storage and automatic upload for photos since iOS 7 (it is a very attractive offer, at least for me)

    Is there a way to search for movie rentals only? I don't want to buy movies and I'm tired of clicking on a movie only to find out its for purchase only?

    The best solution I've come across so far is to dump all movies into a shareware app called iVI. It'll show whether each movie has subtitles or not.
