i do remember my pass code but my phone is disabled, i don't want to restore my phone what do i do?

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?
Follow these instructions to get your device back to working condition:
iOS: Device Disabled

  • HT1212 a friend gave me her iphone but could not remember her passcode and the phone is disable.  What can i do to reset the phone

    A friend gave me her old iphone 4 but could not remember the passcode and the phone is disabled.  How can I reset the passcode?

    In HT1212,
    If you have never synced your device with iTunes, or you do not have access to a computer
    If you see one of following alerts, you need to erase the device:
    "iTunes could not connect to the [device] because it is locked with a passcode. You must enter your passcode on the [device] before it can be used with iTunes."
    "You haven't chosen to have [device] trust this computer"
    If you have Find My iPhone enabled, you can use Remote Wipe to erase the contents of your device. If you have been using iCloud to back up, you may be able to restore the most recent backup to reset the passcode after the device has been erased.
    Alternatively, place the device in recovery mode and restore it to erase the device:
    Disconnect the USB cable from the device, but leave the other end of the cable connected to your computer's USB port.
    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 shut down.
    While pressing and holding the Home button, reconnect the USB cable to the device. The device should turn on.
    Continue holding the Home button until you see the Connect to iTunes screen.
    iTunes will alert you that it has detected a device in recovery mode. Click OK, and then restore the device.

    Only the original cellular provider can authorize unlocking. You will need to contact them to determine if they offer unlocking and if the phone qualifies.

    It seems as though you are describing two different things, unless you are trying to say that you cannot connect to the iTunes Store on through the phone. If that is correct, suggest you try and do a search, the question has been asked a great deal and answers can be found. Maybe even try and describe the error message you are seeing when trying to connect.

    Connect the iOS device to your computer and try to make a backup.
    iOS: How to back up
    Then restore via iTunes. Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode if necessary to allow the restore.
    If recovery mode does not work try DFU mode.

    For how to restore:
    iTunes: Restoring iOS software
    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.
    You can redownload iTunes purchases by:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store

  • Hi! I download the new update for my iPod on my pc but now it's stuck on the recovery mode! No jailbreak. I don't want to restore it because I'll loose all of my photos... HELP

    I download the new update for my iPod on my pc but now it's stuck on the recovery mode! No jailbreak. I don't want to restore it because I'll loose all of my photos... HELP

    Maybe:
    Restore loop (being prompted to restore again after a restore successfully completes)
    Troubleshoot your USB connection. If the issue persists, out-of-date or incorrectly configured third-party security software may be causing this issue. Please follow Troubleshooting security software issues. .
    Next try placing in DFU mode and then restoring.

    Then try restoring on another computer.
    Last, make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.

    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.

    ‘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.

  • BROUGHT MY IPOD FROM FRIEND. I HAVE PASSCODE BUT MY IPOD IS DISABLED.

    Look everybody i need peoples help. See i just brought my ipod from a friend they gave me the passcode and everything. Now i brought it home and i went to the bathroom now while i was in the bathroom my little cousin had got to the ipod, and he kept trying to get in the ipod to listen to music, but he didnt know the passcode. So he consently kept trying to get in and while doing so it locked me out. I got out the bathroom and i tryed everything to get it working again.But the Ipod keeps saying one thing on the screen: iPod is disabled
    connect to iTunes
    now can somebody help me because i payed good money for this, and it is not stolen i made sure of that. i really dont know what model it is either it is just a 8 gb, and it is up to date.

    You can't understand this from the document I linked to?
    +"If you cannot remember the passcode, *you will need to restore your device* using the computer with which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your data will not be present. Refer to Updating and restoring iPhone and iPod touch software."+
    If the iPod is not accepting the passcode you are entering, then it's clearly not the correct passcode. Ask your "friend" to give you the passcode again, in case you didn't remember it correctly.

  • My Iphone is disabled because of too many attempts at unlocking in with incorrect passcode.  I know the code and do not want to "restore" phone.  How can I fix this

    My Iphone 4 is disabled as a result of someone making too many attempts at guessing my passcode.  I know my passcode and do NOT want to "restore" my phone.  Is there a way for me to use  my passcode to unlock it once it has been disabled?

    Its frustrating because all of the help assumes you have forgotten your passcode, or that you can get in to your phone to get the ID number.

    You will need to restore your iDevice from the same computer that you most recently synced to.

    If you can't do the restore then you will need to try recovery mode.

  • IPhone 4s is stuck in recovery mode but I don't want to restore!

    I backed up my phone then tried to update it to iOS 6.1.3 and the update wasn't working so i unplugged it, hoping to start over. My phone is now in recovery mode and I've tried holding the buttons and nothing has worked. I DO NOT WANT TO RESTORE MY PHONE. I have important pictures on my phone and they will be erased. What do I do?

    If the iPhone is in Recovery Mode, there is no choice but to restore.
    Notes:
    In certain situations, an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch will automatically go into recovery mode after an update or restore issue.
