I am just sick. I cannot get into my ipad. I am being blocked out at the 15 min mark now. I really thought and wrote down the passcode as what I used with my apple ID. I am scared I will lost this ipad. I cannot get it back to the original mac computer to put it back. Is there any thing I can do?

I think I have found the solution. USE Recovery mode. Do you think this will work? The ipad has never been linked to my imac. Will wait to hear from someone. TIA Adloona

iOS: Forgot passcode or device disabled

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

bobtomay, your link is where I found the Recovery Mode directions. Nothing is said about being the same computer or different computer that you use for this.

After doing some searching, I believe I never did put in a passcode. Before I turned it off the for the last time, I was able to set up the wifi.

I have not updated to iTunes 11 on my imac so I had better copy my music and xlm document for it over to an external hard drive.

Thanks for the link.

If that's true, then you shouldn't be asked for one when you turn on your iPad.

did not note where I read this today, but it said os7 did not tell about this glitch, that you have to figure out where to put the password, but it wasn't advertised. So one does not know to do this before turning it off. Hope that made sense.
